Description :


A young girl's astonishing, poignant first look into the turbulent heart of things "I had in my care that summer four dogs, three cats, the Moran kids, Daisy, my eight-year-old cousin, and Flora, the toddler child of a local artist. There was also, for a while, a litter of wild rabbits, three of them, that had been left under our back steps.... " Alice McDermott's haunting and enchanting new work of fiction--her first since the bestselling Charming Billy, winner of the 1998 National Book Award--is narrated by a woman who was born beautiful. Her parents decided that her best chance in life was to marry a wealthy man, so she was raised on the east end of Long Island, among the country houses of the rich. On the cusp of fifteen, she is the town's most sought-after babysitter--cheerful, beloved, a wonder with children and animals, but also a solitary soul with an already complex understanding of human nature--when her favorite cousin, Daisy, comes to spend the summer. The narrator's witty, piquant, deeply etched evocation of all that was really transpiring under the surface during that seemingly idyllic season gives her wry tale--infused with suppressed passion, disappointment, and enduring hope--its remarkable vividness and impact. Once again, Alice McDermott explores the mysterious depths of what seems like everyday life with unforgettable insight and resonant emotional power.

Description :


Is an impostor robbing you of God’s love? We’ve bought into the lie that we are worthy of God’s love only when our lives are going well. If our families are happy or our jobs are meaningful, life is a success. But when life begins to fall through the cracks and embarrassing sins threaten to reveal our less-than-perfect identity, we scramble to keep up a good front to present to the world—and to God. We hide until we can rearrange the mask of perfection. Sadly, it is then that we wonder why we lack intimate relationships and a passionate faith. All this time God is calling us to take the mask off and come openly to Him. He longs for us to know in the depth of our beings that He loves us and accepts us as we are. When we are our true selves, we can finally claim our identity as God’s child—Abba’s child—and experience His pure pleasure in who we are. Brennan Manning encourages us to let go of the impostor lifestyle and freely accept our belovedness as a child of the heavenly Father. In Him there is life.

Description :


Many of us were asked by our mother to do the dishes as children. Perhaps some of us would need to be asked more than once. Koe Creation was the type who'd get asked three times, by three different mothers. Crowded parent-teacher conferences, queer youth summer camp, and parental adoptions over potluck dinner were typical of Koe's upbringing in a queer, polyamorous family. Taught from young age to embrace sex-positivity and LGBT acceptance, Koe had an experience of "family values" that differs wildly from many raised in conservative North America. Still: all families know conflict and all hearts know struggle, no matter how loved. Though a poster child for the alternative Seattle community, Koe yearned for a realization of theirself beyond the "shadow of their tribe." This drive for a singular identity led Koe to leave the alt-Seattle scene to find the self that no one person or family could make for them. This Heart Holds Many is a testament of transformative, communal love, as told by an educator and life-long learner who has dedicated their life to helping others grasp their extraordinary love.

Description :


“Child of the Heart" is a dreamscape written while suffering the sad pain of anxiety disorder. The author was instructed to write a letter to his “inner child.” The result is an exciting tale of capture and escape that takes place in the mind of our protagonist. While written about serious and debilitating disease, it is filled with humor and recognizable voices that all of us deal with all the time. It also has fearful and frightening images that are a manifestation of a disease when it’s out of control. Two of the characters you will find are “Wort” who personifies worry, and “Mort” who personifies the tendency to predict catastrophe. They are twins, tiny men who sit on the protagonist’s shoulders, squabbling and fussing their way through the landscape of inner angst. Child of the Heart is a look into the human mind through the personification of its symptoms. If you’ve ever suffered these sad feelings you’ll recognize and sympathize the voices of the inner mind that find faces in Child of The Heart.

The Earth's True Children is a mythical tragedy featuring an element of science fiction/fantasy. Founded by a group of separatists who had become disenchanted with the decadence rife in the other six great northern city-states of the world, the city of Anaxagorus and its citizens pride themselves on their crusade for knowledge and moral adherence. Hylax, the son of Heracon – the late but still revered pioneer of the city – has grown tired of government and seeks a simple life. Struggling to deal with his obligation to his father's legacy and his own feelings of disillusionment with mankind, he tries to find a way of satisfying himself and his people. But when his old confidant, Abenader, returns half-dead from the desert and a person dear to him is murdered, a conspiracy threatens to usurp his authority. Meanwhile, an age-old species has emerged from the confines of the earth. They have seen the future and know where man's corrupting and insatiable desire to plunder its resources will lead. A great conflict looms that could reshape the world entirelyAt once an intimate and epic study of power, set in a time akin to the ancient Greek era, 'The Earth's True Children' examines humanity at its best and at its worst. Warning: This is NOT a book for children.

One of the benefits of social media is getting to meet the parents of special needs children and adults. I have grown to know and truly admire these brave people. Our solitary journeys have taken many different roads, yet we've all connected on sites like Facebook, Twitter, and other forums. The support we give each other is a lifeline-an opportunity to not only share the joys our sons and daughters bring into our lives, but also the chance to rant about the frequent injustices we meet head on. I am honoured to have 'met' so many fantastic Warrior Mums from around the world, so honoured that I decided to feature some of their stories in a blog series, which I have now reproduced in this book. These mums will inspire you, just like they have me, these brave women who share their stories from childhood to motherhood and reveal far more than they normally would, in the hope their stories will help others.
