There is a built-in difficulty convincing a woman you haven’t talked to in 20 years that you’ve loved her since you were six. Compound this with the fact that the woman was your first-grade teacher and now, as a first-year college professor, you have her pleasantly unmotivated son in one of your classes and you have a disastrous encounter just waiting to happen. This is the situation facing Jeremiah Curtin, and it is, perhaps, the defining complication of his life. But there are others. It is when Jeremiah comes upon an abandoned house tucked away in the hills of the Hudson Valley that he feels an answering call to his many questions. The house and property slowly reveal their secrets to Jeremiah and become his new classroom, a place where he comes ever closer to discovering the meaning of love and commitment.

by William Rubin

He forsakes a lucrative career in medicine, and plunges headlong into the brutal, unforgiving world of a New York City homicide detective. Head of the new Division of Medical Crimes, Ravello’s first case pits him against a brilliant, sadistic serial killer.

Fighting an illness which threatens his job, immersed in turmoil at home due to his radical career change, Ravello struggles to understand who The Giver is and where he will strike next. Just as he discovers the killer’s identity the unspeakable happens, and Ravello is confronted with an agonizing choice: will he play it safe or make the ultimate sacrifice to save his loved ones and the city he is sworn to protect and serve?

Here is Riyasha’s parents:

I want to thank Christine Keleny of CK Books Publishing for helping in making the dream come true of my daughter Riyasha Dey Majumdar, who wrote the book “Chrystal the Dolphin”. She went above and beyond to work with every minute detail. It is very challenging to work with a kid as they have no idea how to get a book out in the market. She has not only been a guide to her but has contributed in so many ways that we cannot measure any way in terms of money. She has extended her support just like her own daughter. Christine has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to book publishing. She has been instrumental in Editing, creating the book skeleton, researching the book size, getting quote from the printers, contacting with the printers, went back and forth with us as well as printer for countless number times. Many times, she has even motivated me and followed up to make sure I am still on track. Her skills are way beyond I can write in words. She has spent all the time to make it the best possible product that one can expect. Christine is very proactive and has been so responsive that we never had to wait more than an hour to get response from her. We never talked over the phone as she has always explained things in such a nice way. She has all the resources that you need to get a book published. It has made a great impact on Riyasha who has decided to dedicate her next book to Christine. I am still not sure if I can justify her time and effort and honest opinion that she has provided all this time, but I cannot think of working with anybody else. I will highly, highly recommend her and hope, if you are reading this, you will give her a chance and work with her at least once to experience your satisfaction. Christine has now become a part of our family with such a touching moment that cannot be forgotten ever. Hope you get chance to read the book “Crystal the Dolphin” to see their work or download it on your Kindle Device. Christine Thank you again and we wish you all the success in life.
