Summary: Sunday Times number one bestseller Joanna Trollope explores the issues at the heart of a modern family with her trademark wit and warmth, in Mum & Dad. ‘What a mess, she thought now . . . what a bloody, unholy mess the whole family has got itself into.’ It’s been twenty-five years since Gus and Monica left England to start a new life in Spain, building a vineyard and wine business from the ground up. However, when Gus suffers a stroke and their idyllic Mediterranean life is thrown into upheaval, it’s left to their three grown-up children in London to step in . . . Sebastian is busy running his company with his wife, Anna, who’s never quite seen eye-to-eye with her mother-in-law. Katie, a successful solicitor in the City, is distracted by the problems with her long-term partner, Nic, and the secretive lives of their three daughters. And Jake, ever the easy-going optimist, is determined to convince his new wife, Bella, that moving to Spain with their eighteen-month-old would be a good idea. As the children descend on the vineyard, it becomes clear that each has their own idea of how best to handle their mum and dad, as well as the family business. But as long-simmering resentments rise to the surface and tensions reach breaking point, can the family ties prove strong enough to keep them together? 'Trollope writes about family relationships with intelligence and clear-eyed sympathy' - The Times

Summary: Adults sometimes think children are too young to understand much of the world. Yet research tells us that a child’s brain and cognitive development is far beyond that which most parents imagine. If parents really listen to their children, they can come to understand them better and in turn would have an easier and more enjoyable parenting experience. Children expect parents to love them in the right way and give them ‘sunshine’. But how does that work in practice? In Mum and Dad, Please Listen to Me, teacher and parent Jenny McFall translates the combination of the essential elements of child psychological and social development and character education into a simple manual for every day use. Jenny covers the 50 most common challenges that parents are likely to encounter and the way to achieve positive outcomes and hands-on daily tasks to develop children’s sense of responsibility and independence. Mum and Dad, Please Listen to Me shows you how to give your children the keys to put them on the path to a happy and more successful adulthood.

Summary: Description"Poles Apart" tells the story of how suffering from severe mental health problems since the age of 17 nearly destroyed Michelle. But now, strangely, when she looks back at her life she feels it has made her stronger.It took ten years before she was diagnosed with Bi-polar disorder.Her low episodes were caused by very excessive stress in the workplace as a personal assistant in local government and she had three breakdowns at the ages of 17, 22 and 27. During this last one she threw herself under a train and miraculously survived with no injuries.She was sectioned into a Victorian style mental hospital. This, she says, was sheer hell on earth.'I decided to write my autobiography because I am convinced that there will be a lot of people out there, in this stressful age, who have suffered like me. If one person picks up my book and I give them hope by everything that has happened to me, and how my life is now happy and fulfilled, then I will have a great sense of personal achievement. I would like fellow sufferers who are currently still very ill to see that, even though life seems so bleak at times, things can turn round and you can get better.'About the AuthorAlthough married for 4 years, Michelle was surprised to find herself pregnant. Throughout the whole of the pregnancy she was still very depressed and convinced she was dying and that her body was tricking her into thinking she was pregnant. Nobody knew. Eventually she gave birth to Kirsty, who she calls 'my darling daughter' (now aged 8).This turned her life around for the better: 'Something registered in my sub conscious when I had Kirsty and I stopped thinking I was dying - how could a dying body give birth to a healthy child?'Michelle loved being a mother and says she went a bit high afterwards but leveled off. Sixteen months later she had a second daughter; 'my lovely Lauren' (now aged 6).'I love motherhood and I believe it has been my saviour.'

What Are You Thinking Of, Dad?'

  • ISBN Code: 1848764812

Summary: A heart-rending, honest account of the effect a stroke can have on family life. Nick Wisbey was 15 when his 49 year old father, Stan, was struck down by a stroke that was to leave him speechless and unable to communicate verbally. Instantaneously, the stroke relegated Stan from the head of the household, the breadwinner, to an invalid. The devastation on losing his ability to speak caused massive frustrations - with the family left to guess from his gesticulations what it was he wanted. The tensions mounted and Stan understandably struggled to adapt to his changed life - over time he sank into a world of TV watching, reading and silence. The family were left to cope as best they could, but felt that the stroke had cheated them out of a husband and father. The frustrations only increased as the years passed and the family grew. Stan Wisbey survived his stoke for twenty eight years, retaining the good looks and outward composure he'd always possessed, but never having resolved his anger with the illness. A further stroke took its toll on his well being and cognative abilities. What are you thinking of Dad? is Nick Wisbey's touching account of those 28 years. They focus on his relationship with his father - the highs and lows, the love and hate - as well as his mother's caring devotion to the family during this time. This account is unique because of the emphasis on the long term effect living with serious illness.

After the deaths of Ileana and Sarah in Ecuador, just three and twelve at the time, Karen was thrown into a crisis of faith that lasted for years. She understands how even the most faithful can stumble and question and reject the love of the Lord. Healing Begins in the Heart, Karen shares how God found her in her doubt.

As she grew in knowledge of God’s loving care, she came to see the life transforming truth of who God really is and the freedom that is hers through all that Jesus has done. An open and honest sharing of Karen’s trials, tragedies, and ultimate victories, this is a story about God’s grace, His perseverance with us, and His desire for an intimate relationship with us that leads us into the good plans and purposes He has for each one of us.

But no amount of training could have prepared her for the rollercoaster of life in the air.

  • Category: Biography & Autobiography
  • Pages : 240
  • ISBN Code: 1938908058

Summary: The son of a missionary and a Baptist minister, seventeen-year-old immigrant David George Ball was following his destiny to become a pastor. He had always dreamed of making a difference in people’s lives. But when he met the then relatively unknown Martin Luther King Jr., the course of Ball’s life changed forever. In this memoir, A Marked Heart, Ball narrates his journey: beginning with growing up in wartime England; immigrating to the United States in 1954 to take the pastor’s course at Chicago’s Moody Bible Institute; attending Yale University as a scholarship student; and, most importantly, meeting King. Later, he worked on Wall Street as a lawyer, started a family, championed the 401(k) plan, and served as assistant secretary of labor. A Marked Heart describes how Ball’s encounter with King inspired the rest of his life’s work, and it provides a multifaceted look at his immigration, education, family relationships, career, and his commitment to public service. Though Ball never became a minister, his story communicates how his commitment to God and prayer guided his life. “A heartwarming portrait of faith pushing back against adversity, in an amazing journey inspired by Martin Luther King.” —The Right Reverend Herman Hollerith IV, Bishop of the Diocese of Southern Virginia Episcopal Church “In his early life, David George Ball, like Mr. Justice Holmes, had the break of being ‘touched with fire,’ having a religious father, a strict mother, and contact with Martin Luther King Jr. If this nation is to remain great, such ideas as expressed in David’s book should be introduced to persons in their last year of high school or their first year of college.” –William T. Coleman Jr., O’Melveny & Myers, Former Chairman of NAACP Legal Defense Fund 1977–1997, Secretary of Transportation 1975–1977

The Science of Ocean Waves

  • Publisher : JHU Press
  • Release Date : 2013-12-18
  • Category: Science
  • Pages : 264
  • ISBN Code: 1421410796

Summary: "Powerful ocean waves fascinate the public, and they have made a lot of news lately." With that indisputable observation, scientist J. B. Zirker takes off on a whirlwind tour of the world of waves—from the "ordinary" waves that constantly churn the sea to the rogues or freaks that can rise up seemingly from nowhere to heights of 20 meters or more... and everything in between. Addressing questions most ocean visitors have had and offering new ones for our consideration, The Science of Ocean Waves explains in accessible language how waves are formed, how they move, how they become huge and destructive, and how they're being studied now for clues that will help us plan for the future. Devoting chapters to wind, tides, currents, breakers, tsunamis, forecasting, renewable energy, and El Niño—as well as discussing the gentler properties of ocean waves which inspire us and offer opportunities for relaxation and recreation—Zirker explores the physical factors that create waves. Drawing on some of the recent storms that have devastated entire regions—such as Hurricane Katrina, the tsunami launched by the 2004 Sumatran earthquake, and the great tsunami that crushed the shore of Japan in 2011—Zirker explains the forces that cause these monster waves and reveals the toll they take on human lives. Enhanced by dozens of illustrations and a comprehensive glossary, The Science of Ocean Waves will fascinate anyone curious about the science behind the headlines. Praise for J. B. Zirker "Scientists know their stuff but are rarely good storytellers, whereas good storytellers rarely possess the necessary sweeping command of a scientific discipline. Zirker is that rare animal who can both communicate the most demanding technical detail and make it accessible."—New Scientist

The road they were now travelling would teach them many new and old truths and would lead them to witness the greatest battle the universe and history had ever seen. But as well as these universal truths, Jamie and Anna would also discover the truth about their dead grandfather and 'the wolf' he had to battle. The story of Jamie and Anna is the story of The Enochim and even now, 'The half has not yet been told'.

Summary: On ending up in a too familiar situation after years of emotional and physical pain, I began searching for answers as to why all these difficulties kept happening. It was at this life threatening time that I was first approached by the energy vibration of the four archangels. Due to the fact I had always seen spirits as physical people, I didn’t believe the angels instructions, but after another very special visitation where they showed themselves to me — which is no easy feat for them,— I agreed to write their words; and that’s how this book manifested. As I wrote, my life began to make sense, which now enables me to live with more awareness of what part I have to play in my soul’s journey opening my eyes to wonderful new possibilities. When angels speak, do you listen? I did, and now you too can experience the higher healing knowledge of how your soul’s journey affects your human existence, and how you can work with your soul to ease life’s impact. So give yourself permission to engage with the timeless angelic knowledge that will enable you to encounter a freedom never felt or known before.

Summary: ?This book tells the story of Isabel?s life from early childhood to young adulthood, growing up in Spain in the 1970s and 1980s. It is told through the voice of Isabel as she struggles to make sense of her bewildering world of family rules and social norms, where children are expected to do as they were told without discussion. Isabel is the fifth child of seven, watching both her older and younger siblings? interests and behaviour through the lens of a little girl who finds it difficult to play and engage with others. Isabel is a serious little girl who watches everything, seeing minute details in every aspect of her life. Repeatedly she describes the anxiety she feels of ?not knowing? what is going to happen and when she might be expected to do something outside of her comfort zone. The stories of her traumatic start at school, the tonsillectomy, her father?s terrifying behaviour towards his children, and her adolescent emotions and first experience of sex are told with vivid attention to detail. Although autism is never explicitly mentioned in this book, Isabel?s struggles to make sense of the world, her ability to focus with such intensity and the overwhelming anxiety that she experiences are all features of girls and women with Asperger?s syndrome, or autism. Indeed, the behaviour of Isabel?s father, Roberto, suggests that he too is on the spectrum, with behaviours that make him frightening and unpredictable to a child. This book has been sensitively written and the story is engaging and unpredictable. It also gives insight into how a girl who might be on the autistic spectrum struggles to cope with the demands of social and family life. I can thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who likes to read about family sagas or who is interested in childhood and autism.? - Anita Hughes, Chartered Educational Psychologist.

Summary: THE SUNDAY TIMES SPORT BOOK OF THE YEAR A retirement statement from a sports star rarely causes a flicker, but Nicole Cooke went out as she rode her bike: giving it her all. The contrast could not have been greater - as Lance Armstrong, a fraudster backed by many corporate sponsors and feted by presidents, was about to deliver a stage-managed confession to Oprah, so a young woman from a small village in Wales took aim. She too had been a cyclist, the only rider ever to have become World and Olympic champion in the same year, and the first British cyclist to have been ranked World No.1, but as a woman in a man's sport, her exploits gained little recognition and brought no riches. She too had ridden through this dark period for the sport when drug-taking was everywhere. Nicole Cooke spoke up for those who had taken a very different path to Lance and his team-mates. In her frank and outspoken autobiography, Cooke reveals the real story behind British cycling's rise to global dominance. With a child's dreams of success, she left home at 18 to pursue her goals in Italy. Broken contracts, unpaid wages, a horrendous injury and drugs cheats were just some of the challenges she faced, even before she lined up to take on her opponents. The Breakaway is a book that will not only inspire all those who read it, but which also asks some serious questions about the way society regards women's sport.
