A funny, frank and bittersweet look at sisters, marriage and moving on, from the New York Times bestselling author of the Blue Heron series Letting go of her ex-husband is harder than wedding-dress designer Jenny Tate expected…especially since his new wife wants to be Jenny's new best friend. Needing closure, Jenny trades the Manhattan skyline for her hometown up the Hudson, where she'll start her own business and bask in her sister Rachel's picture-perfect family life…and maybe even find a little romance of her own with Leo, her downstairs neighbor, who's utterly irresistible and annoyingly distant at the same time. Rachel's idyllic marriage, however, is imploding after she discovers what looks like her husband's infidelity. She always thought she'd walk away in this situation but now she's wavering, much to Jenny's surprise. Rachel points to their parents' perfect marriage as a shining example of patience and forgiveness; but to protect her sister, Jenny may have to tarnish that memory—and their relationship—and reveal a family secret she's been keeping since childhood. Both Rachel and Jenny will have to come to terms with the past and the present, and find a way to help each other get what they want most of all.

What if you knew all the moments of my past that I am not proud of? What if you really knew me, the messy parts that I’ve hoped to forget and worked hard to conceal? For so long, my greatest fear was what you might think of me if you only knew the whole story. It’s exhausting, this guarding of our stories and struggles. Fear of being found out had caused me to hide—but I wasn’t just covering my flaws, I was unintentionally blocking the beauty of God’s grace. My journey to real freedom began when I quit running from my mess and started trusting Jesus to make something beautiful of it. This book is that story. It’s stepping out of shame and insecurity into gospel freedom. It’s letting God turn our failures and frailties into testimonies of His faithfulness. I’ve discovered that when we quit hiding, God gets the glory and we are able to fully embrace not only our relationship with Him, but also with one another. Transparency brings freedom, and in every moment, we'll find that God can absolutely be trusted.

From New York Times bestseller, Corinne Michaels, comes a new heartwarming and sexy standalone romance novel. My life was perfect - until a shocking tragedy pulled the rug out from underneath me. My children were left without a father. I was without a husband and a provider. Instead of wallowing in my grief, I buried myself in my work at Dovetail Enterprises. Landing the promotion as the CEO’s right hand was exactly what I needed. Getting saddled with Milo Huxley as an assistant is exactly the opposite. I can’t stand him. He’s arrogant, irresponsible, and out for my job. As if that’s not bad enough, he has to be devastatingly sexy, and have a posh English accent that makes me squirm on top of it all. I’ve had enough unpredictability for one lifetime, thank you. But soon enough, we’re fighting less and laughing more. He’s there for me when no one else is. And those good looks aren’t the only panty-dropping thing about him. If I only knew what to do about it . . .

In summary, we judge people by the clothes, jobs cars or where they live. Sometimes a person might miss out on the love of their life because they are looking at the outward appearance instead of trying to bring out the best of a person. I'm not saying spend all of your time trying to help that person validate himself with yourself because with some people that's work in progress and it usually is not going to happen. How about treating people the way you want to be treated that sweet and often will have better results. We often hear that saying that God don't like ugly. And this lady told me one time and he isn't that fun of pretty either. Sometimes I think it is innate for humans to judge but from reading we might need to start thinking outside of the box and don't let that love past you by. Live and love, it's not that hard. If you meet a person and that person likes you for who you are, try loving that person back. Women or men I'm not saying lower your standards but get with somebody who accept your inner soul and try to build on what makes you both happy together. Like Teddy Pendergrass use to sing." It's so good loving somebody when somebody loves you back. So in Closing, "Don't worry be happy".

I created If You Only Knew from a place of kind curiosity and openness to understanding.The idea for the photo essay was inspired by conversations with a friend who battled depression. Those conversationshelped me understand the illness. Not the textbook definition of it. But how it actually felt in terms I couldrelate to.After that experience, I wondered how I could use my talent and insight as a photographer to visually translatepersonal descriptions of mental illness. Perhaps helping others better understand mental illness as well.In the beginning, I envisioned this project as an art exhibit, hoping to share interviews, portraits, and visual analogyphotographs featuring about ten people. To my surprise, ten people quickly agreed to be interviewed. And thenthat number easily grew to fifteen, the maximum I felt the exhibit space could accommodate.I was astonished. Not only were people sharing pieces of their personal-and sometimes challenging-experienceswith mental illness, but most were willing to have their portrait taken as part of the photo essay.You might wonder, as I did, why anyone would share their personal story so publicly. When I asked participantsthis question, some common themes shaped their responses. Jenna's and Chelsea's interviews reflect these themes.Jenna hoped to break down the stigma of mental illness-"To do that, you have to talk about it," she said. Chelseashared her story in "hopes that it will help just one person."At some point, I made the decision to continue conducting interviews and creating portraits despite not needingmore for the exhibit. I explained to these extra participants that I might do a book in the future.The photo essay received a wonderful response at the art exhibit, so my decision to move forward with this bookwas relatively easy.A total of thirty-two people agreed to be interviewed, including those already a part of the exhibit. People foundout about the project in several ways: from my initial request for interviews, from friends of people I'd interviewed,and from me talking about the project at art events.

|Author||: Jann Arden|
|Editor||: Random House Canada|
NATIONAL BESTSELLER Jann Arden--bestselling author, recording artist and late-blooming TV star--is back with this funny, heartfelt and fierce memoir on becoming a woman of a certain age. The power, gravity and freedom she's found at fifty-seven are superpowers she believes all of us can unleash. Digging deep into her strengths, her failures and her losses, Jann Arden brings us an inspiring account of how she has surprised herself, in her fifties, by at last becoming completely her own person. Like many women, it took Jann a long time to realize that trying to be pleasing and likeable and beautiful in the eyes of others was a loser's game. Letting it rip, and damning the consequences, is not only liberating, it's a hell of a lot of fun: "Being the age I am--that so many women are--is just the best time of my life." Jann weaves her own story together with tales of her mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, and the father she came close to hating, to show her younger self--and all of us--that fear and avoidance is no way to live. "What I'm thinking about now aren't all the ways I can try to hang on to my youth or all the seconds ticking by in some kind of morbid countdown to death," she writes, "but rather how I keep becoming someone I always hoped I could be. If I'm lucky one day a very old face will look back at me from the mirror, a face I once shied away from. I will love that old woman ferociously, because she has finally figured out how to live a life of purpose--not in spite of but because of all her mistakes and failures."

Speculation ran rampant within the family as to whether or not my grandfather, Richard Feeney, had been a member of the Irish Republication Brotherhood, prior to immigrating to the United States in 1908. Throw in some alleged gunrunning activity for Clan na Gael, the IRB's American counterpart, upon his arrival in New York and this hardly fit the image of the kindly old man everyone loved and admired. Then again, that talk could have all been a bunch of blarney and he simply came to America to seek a better life for his wife and family.My mother, Beatrice Feeney Keegan, was little help in shedding light on the matter. She refused to talk about it, or anything controversial pertaining to Ireland, except on very rare occasions when, inexplicably, the venom would spew forth from the mouth of this otherwise-devout Catholic woman. Her rants were directed squarely at the English and the unspeakable things they had done to the poor Irish over the centuries, always concluding with the line, "If you only knew the half of it."There is obviously much more to Ireland's history than the potato blight, the diaspora, numerous uprisings, and a bunch of bloody Sundays. When my grandfather's trove of books about Ireland came into my possession, they sparked in me a quest to learn all I could about the country of my ancestors and to tell the side of Ireland's history that many people have never heard. Well, at least the half to which my mother alluded, and quite possibly, a fraction or two more
