Editor Jonathan W. Baker shares some personal insight.

Nelson M. Baker published the Genealogy of the Descendants of Edward Baker in 1867. To this day, that volume is the definitive genealogy for the descendants of Edward Baker. This volume is a group of Carte de Visite of Nelson M Baker and his siblings, his parents, his father’s siblings, and his grandmother on his father’s side. These images come from a satchel that was in the attic of the Baker homestead in Lafayette, N.Y. and were turned over, in the 1970s, to the local historian, J.Roy Dodge. He held onto the satchel waiting for any descendant to reach out to him. I connected with Mr. Dodge accidentally, by calling the Lafayette Public Library and was put in touch with Mr. Dodge, who graciously allowed me to copy and publish this book.

Featured Books

TORY ROOF

TORY ROOF is a woman’s story – an unexpected romance and account of bravery – that pits logic against longing. The story takes Sarah Sutherland from the safety of her contemporary New England home into the arms of a fiery Revolutionary War agitator. In the process, she discovers her own independence and why she was chosen to traverse time. The present-day plot unfolds throughout the course of a year and dovetails with actual events in 1765. In trying to reconcile the two, Sarah learns that people around her are not who they seem, and that greed can infiltrate even the noblest agendas.

SILVER LINE

SILVER LINE follows a casual college couple who discovers they can revert to their former, older selves living as a miner and dancehall girl in a bawdy 1860s Colorado town. Jared Sutherland (Sarah’s son) had repressed these precognitive skills, until Alexa insists they are a gift. He finally agrees to use them to help solve a modern museum heist—and to travel back in time, lured by the romance of their alter-egos and adventures in the untamed West. Together, the twosome discovers that clues to the present lie in the past as their innocent attraction matures into something more.

ABSENT

ABSENT invites the average man – or the woman who loves one – to embark on a quest for self-improvement. When Carter Sutherland (Sarah’s husband and think tank executive) meets the lovely Tracee Green, a synesthete who sees words as colors, little does he know she will take him on four sensory-rich journeys that alter his black-and-white world. Regressed through several personas, past and future, he gains emotional intelligence and personal insight that helps him at work. But he also stumbles into black-market dealings and a situation he can’t escape.

The author often wondered what it would be like to simply disappear and do something else — thus the motivation for the Sutherland Series
