Nancy Shore | Oct. 8th

Amanda Moreno-Lake | Nov.12th

Allen B. West | Sept. 10th

Nancy Shore’s story combines love, betrayal, conspiracy, suffering and survival with a cast of improbable characters: a respected church-going husband and his mistress, a group of colorful criminals in East Texas and a millionaire businessman. The story opens with Nancy’s returning home from a church function on a Saturday night in 2012 and facing an attacker who demands her purse and then shoots her in the head. The story becomes increasingly bizarre as evidence surfaces of a murder-for-hire conspiracy initiated by Nancy’s husband. During the trials, Nancy learns how many times the would-be killers’ plans were thwarted by God’s intervention to save her life. Today, she is committed to sharing her unwavering faith that God can bring blessings out of the most devastating tragedies. Her book, The Shooting of Nancy Howard: A Journey back to Shore can be found on Amazon.
