A FALLEN PREY COLLECTION - VOLUME 2. Thorns and tears. Beauty to ashes. In a time of unprecedented uncertainty, Boston writer Demetris E. Thomas, tells a harrowing tale of betrayal, trauma and deceit at the hands of a man whose life and head seemed fueled by his own egocentric persuasions. He believed he was the 'ungetable get'---when in fact, he was a child in desperate need of help. Although Thomas' account offers an excruciating detail of his daily, psychological onslaught against her person, she was not without recourse. With precissioned diagnostic skill, Thomas reveals his methods, mechanisms and ultimate downfall when she finally says goodbye. 'Rose' is a testament to all that Christ Jesus provides rescue and exit from any unwanted situation, and brings us to the green pastures beside still waters.
At the intersection of love and affection, little Demetris' life veered into the path of betrayal and horror. So innocent and bright with a wonderful future ahead, her young life was nearly derailed by a family member, then by a close, childhood friend, and later in life, by two men---the marauders of love. Betrayed and abandoned, Demetris then found herself at the precipice between ruination and success. Which path would she take? Would she ever receive justice? Or, take it herself? Were it not for the strong women in her family, Demetris might not have made it long enough to tell her story filled with one great truth. The Lord God Almighty stretched forth His hand, pulled her out of the mud, and set her on the pinnacles of complete restoration. The Demetris E. Thomas story is unforgettable and makes a soothing gift for anyone who's endured the same.
"An Englishman in the Seminole War," was published by The Florida Historical Society and is available directly from the FHS and from Amazon.
The book is a memoir based upon the letters of John Bemrose, edited by Randal J. Agostini, who is John’s great great grandson. John Bemrose came to America from England as an unaccompanied 16 year-old in 1831. He served in the US Army as a dedicated hospital steward during the Second Seminole War.
Bemrose documented his five years in America in a series of sixty letters written to his eldest son, Weightman between November 1863 and May 1866.
John Bemrose provides unique descriptions of nineteenth century St. Augustine, Jacksonville, Micanopy, and other locations. He offers personal observations of Florida's diverse populations, and key figures of the Seminole War. Bemrose recounts dramatic battles, difficult marches through the Florida wilderness and the challenging life of a soldier in the 1830’s.
This exciting memoir, written as a first person narrative, provides valuable new insights into Florida history and culture from An Englishman in the Seminole War.”

Zionism . . . promotes the narrative that the Nazi holocaust is exceptional in human history - despite it being one of many holocausts from Native Americans North and South to Armenia and Rwanda. It sets Jews apart from the victims and survivors of other genocides instead of uniting us with them . . . Billions of US dollars flow annually to Israel to sustain the occupation and Israel's sophisticated and brutal army. The war machine they fund is a leader in the global arms industry, which drains resources craved by a world in desperate need of water, food, health care, housing and education. - International Jewish anti-Zionist Network Charter . . . Palestinian dispossession and occupation are by design. Zionism has meant profound trauma for generations, systematically separating Palestinians from their homes, land, and each other. Zionism, in practice, has resulted in massacres of Palestinian people, ancient villages and olive groves destroyed, families who live just a mile away from each other separated by checkpoints and walls, and children holding onto the keys of the homes from which their grandparents were forcibly exiled . . . - Jewish Voice for Peace in its "Approach to Zionism" What will be seared into the consciousness of the world will be the image of Israel as a blood-stained monster, ready at any moment to commit war crimes and not prepared to abide by any moral restraints .
