Shirley Wilde – Secrets of Gracefield Manor ($19.95 each)
Secrets of Gracefield Manor by local author Shirley Wilde. An account of the history of the Grace House on Duke Road.
What is a Southern Plantation Colonial doing in a rural area just outside Victoria, BC in the Municipality of Metchosin? This house, and the original owners, have been a mystery to many people since it was built in 1942–43. Who were the people that built the house on 74.5 acres of sea view property? Were they really Americans from Chicago? What was their background (history)? Were they a wealthy family fleeing from Chicago, a city that had a long history of organized crime? Gracefield Manor has been a house of great interest since it was built. In later years it has been referred to as “The Haunted House” because of its rundown condition and the overgrown fields. The condition of this house sent a message that no one lived here but Mrs. Grace did. This old house has been restored by the current owner, who is the second owner, and who won an award from the Heritage Society for restoring the house and returning the land to a working farm. Gracefield Manor is listed as a Heritage House in the Municipality of Metchosin, BC. It is the private residence of the current owner.

The secret to complete human understanding and world peace may be as close as the ocean… It’s a technology with infinite possibilities. DJ Parker, billionaire developer of a proprietary artificial intelligence program, is on the cusp of cracking the miracle code that can usher in a new age of human progress. Amazingly, the technology is ancient, held by a group of beings that have been around for fifty million years: cetacea–species of aquatic mammals including killer whales. But Parker quickly learns he has dangerous enemies including a Russian conglomerate tied to the Kremlin which is seeking the research for its own nefarious purposes–and which will stop at nothing to get it. With DJ’s life in danger and the forces of evil seemingly everywhere, the fate of humankind is up for grabs. A page-turning philosophical thriller, “Lost Frequency” confronts animal rights, human nature, artificial intelligence, and the perils of technology turned loose.
