Kilimanjaro and Beyond: A Life-Changing Journey
Barry and Chris Finlay successfully climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in 2009 and have since raised enough money, in conjunction with Plan Canada, to provide access to clean water and classrooms for a community in Tanzania. They are now embarking on a project to help youth and women ages 15-24 in Tanzania to establish businesses.
Barry learned that a sedentary lifestyle was affecting his health, leaving him determined to improve his diet and conditioning. This resulted in the trip documented in his award-winning book, written with his son Chris.
Kilimanjaro and Beyond has won “Best Inspirational and Spiritual Book” and “Best Book on an Environmental Issue” (both from Reader Views) and been shortlisted for the Eric Hoffer Award for “Best Book by a New Author”.

Richard Gray, grieving over the loss of his wife and daughter, learns that his ancestral home holds the secret of what lies beyond the grave. Now everybody wants a piece of Gethsemane Hall. Louise Meacham wants in because a fellow CIA agent committed suicide there. Anna Pertwee wants in because she’s determined to save the ghosts. Patrick Hudson wants in because he has to save Gray’s soul.
These people think they’re coming for the truth.
What they don’t know is that the truth is coming for them.
