ADVENTURES from INNOCENCE-Snow to Swamp is the first, in the AFI adventure series, written for the enjoyment of adventure enthusiasts of all ages. It’s about the experiences, of a youth, growing up in rural central Florida, during the middle of the last century. Joey Thames is uprooted from his childhood home, on a small family farm in western New England. His family abruptly moves to the unsettled wilds of central Florida, where they buy a fruit grove in rural Lake Hanna. Here, he finds himself adrift, in a very different place. Without friends, or the comforts of, the close extended family, he had enjoyed since birth. In the sparsely settled, rural Florida, Joey finds almost anything goes. During his first week, has to fight two Seminole Indian boys, to prove his worth, and gain their friendship. He and his new friends, develop an immediate bonding, through their mutual love of the out-of-doors and of hunting and fishing. This community, of fruit growers, sugarcane farmers, lumbermen, moonshiners and Seminole Indians, offered many new challenges, for Joey to deal with. Through his innocence, Joey is drawn into many adventures, where he must rely primarily on the strength of his innate moral character, to bring each, to a satisfactory conclusion. The challenges and adventures experienced by Joey play out, within the pages of this book. These are unlike any told before, in a series like ADVENTURES from INNOCENCE. The book also provides the reader, a window into life, as it was in the rural south, during the middle of the last century. The reader will find it a treat to share in Joey’s adventures and sometimes-hazardous experiences, while learning how he deals with each, in a manner far advanced for a person his age.

A deeply felt first novel of family, choices, and coming to terms with the past. On a stifling Christmas Eve in 1967 the lives of the McDonald children-Deborah, Robert, James, and Meredith-changed forever. Their mother, Rosemarie, told them she was running out to buy some lights for the tree. She never came back. The children were left with their father, and a gnawing question: why had their mother abandoned them? Over the years, the four siblings have become practiced in concealing their pain, remaining close into adulthood, and forming their own families. But long-closed wounds are reopened when a chance encounter brings James face-to-face with Rosemarie after nearly forty years. Secrets that each sibling has locked away come to light as they struggle to come to terms with their mother's reappearance, while at the same time their beloved father is progressing into dementia. Veitch's family portrait reveals the joys and sorrows, the complexity and ambiguity of family life, and poignantly probes what it means to love and what it means to leave.
