PR: “Sister of Saidnaya” National Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Jan. 10, 2018

Boyle & Dalton Releases Sister of Saidnaya by Rose Ann Kalister

Zanesville, OH — Boyle & Dalton, publisher of exceptional fiction and non-fiction, has released Rose Ann Kalister’s debut novel: Sister of Saidnaya: A Syrian Immigrant’s Tale to all major paperback and e-book markets.

In 1921, a young Nadra Zahir traveled by boat from the small Christian village of Saidnaya, Syria, to the ports of Boston, and on to Hedley, West Virginia. With little education, Nadra navigates an industrialized nation as a fierce immigrant woman, her potential torn between the expectations of her heritage, and the temptation of independence in the new world.

This book is an eye-opening read for anyone following current events. Nadra’s experiences immerse us in the immigrant experience, her biting wit and tenacity revealing more than a plethora of detached news reports.

Rosalie Ungar, author of In a Heartbeat, praises: “Rose Ann Kalister captures the history of Middle Eastern immigrants in the early 1920s, building a Syrian family saga into a dramatic and delightful story. Sister of Saidnaya portrays Nadra’s hopes and courage in the frequently hostile and often comical world of family and in-laws. I highly recommend this book.”

Sister of Saidnaya is distributed in paperback form nationally, and is available for download on all major e-reader devices.

Boyle & Dalton is an independent hybrid publisher. They vet all submissions for quality prior to publishing in order to uphold the high standard of the Boyle & Dalton brand.

“You go we all go!” Lila said as she stepped closer to Sami.

“I can’t afford to take us and the four girls!”

“Two of them can stay behind. Mama offered to care for them. Sitto is convinced we will return. We can send for them when we’re settled.”

Nadra crept away quietly, but her heart was shouting, take me, please. She didn’t want her big sisters to be left behind, but if someone had to stay, she didn’t want to be the one.

PR: “What If I Had a Father?” National Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Boyle & Dalton Releases What If I Had a Father? by Mike Dean

Columbus, OH — Boyle & Dalton, a publisher of exceptional fiction and non-fiction, has released Mike Dean’s debut memoir: What If I Had a Father? The Man I Never Knew, to all major hardback, paperback and e-book markets.

Two people shape a child’s life: a mother and a father. Dean grew up in Columbus, Ohio with his mother but not his father. The one big question in his life was the root of nearly all of the decisions he made growing up — “What if I had a father?”

The absence of a father threw Dean into a statistical framework that has been proven to lead to a life wasted. By God’s grace, with some powerful relationships and the consistent guide of a national organization, he overcame those challenges. The biggest question of his life became a tool to fix his brokenness and live the life of abundant grace God intended.

Dorothy Stoneman, founder and CEO of YouthBuild USA, praises: “Mike Dean tells the story of his childhood with an open heart, a questioning mind, a poetic spirit, and deep empathy and compassion for everyone he has encountered.”

What If I Had a Father? is distributed in paperback and hardback form nationally, and is available for download on all major e-reader devices.
