"The Four Winds seems eerily prescient in 2021 . . . Its message is galvanizing and hopeful: We are a nation of scrappy survivors. We’ve been in dire straits before; we will be again. Hold your people close.”–The New York Times

"Through one woman’s survival during the harsh and haunting Dust Bowl, master storyteller, Kristin Hannah, reminds us that the human heart and our Earth are as tough, yet as fragile, as a change in the wind." Delia Owens, author of Where the Crawdads Sing

From the number-one bestselling author of The Nightingale and The Great Alone comes a powerful American epic about love and heroism and hope, set during the Great Depression, a time when the country was in crisis and at war with itself, when millions were out of work and even the land seemed to have turned against them.

My land tells its story if you listen. The story of our family.”

Texas, 1921. A time of abundance. The Great War is over, the bounty of the land is plentiful, and America is on the brink of a new and optimistic era. But for Elsa Wolcott, deemed too old to marry in a time when marriage is a woman’s only option, the future seems bleak. Until the night she meets Rafe Martinelli and decides to change the direction of her life. With her reputation in ruin, there is only one respectable choice: marriage to a man she barely knows.

By 1934, the world has changed; millions are out of work and drought has devastated the Great Plains. Farmers are fighting to keep their land and their livelihoods as crops fail and water dries up and the earth cracks open. Dust storms roll relentlessly across the plains. Everything on the Martinelli farm is dying, including Elsa’s tenuous marriage; each day is a desperate battle against nature and a fight to keep her children alive.

In this uncertain and perilous time, Elsa–like so many of her neighbors–must make an agonizing choice: fight for the land she loves or leave it behind and go west, to California, in search of a better life for her family.

The Four Winds is a rich, sweeping novel that stunningly brings to life the Great Depression and the people who lived through it–the harsh realities that divided us as a nation and the enduring battle between the haves and the have-nots. A testament to hope, resilience, and the strength of the human spirit to survive adversity, The Four Winds is an indelible portrait of America and the American dream, as seen through the eyes of one indomitable woman whose courage and sacrifice will come to define a generation.

DESCRIPTION:

A poignant breakout novel, for fans of J. Courtney Sullivan and Elin Hilderbrand, about a single mother who inherits a beautiful beach house with a caveat–she must take care of the ornery elderly woman who lives in it.

For years, Maggie Sheets has been an invisible hand in the glittering homes of wealthy New York City clients, scrubbing, dusting, mopping, and doing all she can to keep her head above water as a single mother. Everything changes when a former employer dies leaving Maggie a staggering inheritance. A house in Sag Harbor. The catch? It comes with an inhabitant: The deceased’s eighty-two-year old mother Edith.

Edith has Alzheimer’s–or so the doctors tell her–but she remembers exactly how her daughter Liza could light up a room, or bring dark clouds in her wake. And now Liza’s gone, by her own hand, and Edith has been left–like a chaise or strand of pearls–to a poorly dressed young woman with a toddler in tow.

Maggie and Edith are both certain this arrangement will be an utter disaster. But as summer days wane, a tenuous bond forms, and Edith, who feels the urgency of her diagnosis, shares a secret that she’s held close for five decades, launching Maggie on a mission that might just lead them each to what they are looking for.

DESCRIPTION:

Still struggling from the effects of an abusive relationship?

Many people do and sadly there is very little information available to be found online or in the written research, or with counsellors and therapists that can help. The Gaslight Effect is not officially recognised, nor is it widely even known.
Even when it is accepted, recognised and known not many people seem to know what to DO ABOUT IT to heal it… The fact is being in a relationship with a narcissist over a long period of time has long lasting traumatic effects that can be extremely catastrophic to the person suffering them.

DO THE FOLLOWING SYMPTOMS SOUND FAMILIAR?
– Doubting yourself and your sanity
– Feeling like you’re losing your mind
– Feeling like you’re always apologizing
– You’re second-guessing your memory
– Feeling like you aren’t good enough

The list goes on….

“NOBODY UNDERSTANDS!”
I hear this frustrated cry from abused people a lot.

Gaslighting is a covert aggressive way of distorting another person’s perception of reality to the point that that person questions their sanity or their memory.
Gaslighting is crazy-making, it makes you think that you’re actually going crazy.
Gaslighting is a way of hiding the abuse.
Gaslighting is lying with a goal.

The motive behind the gaslighting is to make you think that you’re crazy or that your memory doesn’t work right. So you can’t trust yourself and your perceptions of reality.
This means you’ll defer to the abuser for an account of what’s real so slowly over time the abuser becomes the authority over your life.
Gaslighting takes place in relationships, like one-on-one relationships. It takes place in friendships, in family, in work, you’ll see gaslighting on the news, you’ll hear gaslighting coming from politicians, corporate shills, cult leaders, advertising commercials, etc.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

– Top 10 Signs You’re Being Manipulated with Gaslighting
– 80 Things Narcissists Say During Gaslighting
– Six Empowering Ways to Disarm a Narcissist and Take Control
– How to Avoid Mental Manipulation
– How to Deal with the Effects of Gaslighting
– How Narcissists Employ Smart Devices        

WHAT YOU NEED NOW:

– Someone who has been through the same experiences you have and understands them from the inside.

-Someone who has the knowledge, training, education and experience working on himself and others to lead you through the emotional sh*tstorm that breaking with a narcissist can create.

I can’t promise you that reading to this book is going to be a “total cure”, but I can promise that if you APPLY YOURSELF DILLIGENTLY, take notes, read and re-read the chapters, follow all instructions to the letter, with a  tenacious resolve to get better you will feel an instant decrease in anxiety within the first 24 hours and should see huge improvements within the first 3 days.
This is not hype, this is what my audience commonly report

For fans of All the Light We Cannot See, Beneath a Scarlet Sky, and The Nightingale comes an emotionally gripping, beautifully written historical novel about extraordinary hope, redemption, and one man’s search for light during the darkest times of World War II.

Germany, 1942. Franciscan friar Anton Starzmann is stripped of his place in the world when his school is seized by the Nazis. He relocates to a small German hamlet to wed Elisabeth Herter, a widow who seeks a marriage–in name only–to a man who can help raise her three children. Anton seeks something too–atonement for failing to protect his young students from the wrath of the Nazis. But neither he nor Elisabeth expects their lives to be shaken once again by the inescapable rumble of war.

As Anton struggles to adapt to the roles of husband and father, he learns of the Red Orchestra, an underground network of resisters plotting to assassinate Hitler. Despite Elisabeth’s reservations, Anton joins this army of shadows. But when the SS discovers his schemes, Anton will embark on a final act of defiance that may cost him his life–even if it means saying goodbye to the family he has come to love more than he ever believed possible.

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

Organizations are developing project managers from within more and more. Employees who are proficient in their area of expertise are being asked to take on project management.
This book explores the basic concepts and fundamentals of project management.
Project management process
The first lesson focuses on the project management process: highlighting the importance of effective project management, who’s involved with projects, and an introduction to the four phases of the project management process.
Project manager role
The second lesson focuses on the project manager role: highlighting typical roles a project manager must fill to be successful, the value of the project manager, how to deliver the right amount of project management, and how to manage small to medium projects.
This book will provide individuals who are not professional project managers with the knowledge required to build a solid understanding of the fundamentals of project management, helping them transition to the role of project manager.

Today’s business world is a complex and rapidly changing place. Organizations and individuals cannot survive without accepting and embracing change. Change involves your situation: something is different; a bigger office, a new colleague, the reorganization of staff responsibilities.
Transition involves a journey; it is the process of disengagement, transformation, and acceptance of change.
Put simply, change is the event and transition is the process that takes you there. While it is important to know the terms, concepts, techniques, and skills that are involved in project management, it is even more important to be able to put these to work on the job.
A project manager is expected to deal with intangible issues such as human dynamics, establishing authority, and managing people and expectations. This often requires a complex balance of personal and practical skills.
Project management is about the management of people, but it is also about managing the way an organization works, and the way the people within it work.
As a project manager, you will need to realize that people are inseparable from process. It is not only practical skills, but leadership ability, management skills, and the ability to communicate that are imperative to successful projects.

Benjamin Franklin wrote, “For want of a nail the shoe was lost; for want of a shoe the horse was lost; and for want of a horse the rider was lost, being overtaken and slain by the enemy, all for want of care about a horseshoe nail.”
A small problem overlooked in the early stages of project management can grow to be a critical failure in the later stages.
The Initiating and Planning phases of project management are vital to the success of the project. Without the proper tools and information, effective project management is impossible.
Imagine what would happen if the head chef of a busy restaurant didn’t have the right ingredients for the evening menu. What do you think would happen if she didn’t have a plan for efficiently preparing all of the meals during the supper rush?
If you don’t initiate your project properly, you might not have everything you need to meet your goals. And if you don’t plan your project well, you might not meet your goals on time – or at all.
This book examines the importance of properly initiating and planning a project, and explores ways to make your initiating and planning efforts more effective.

Your project plan is complete. Tasks are clearly outlined, the schedule is in place, and the money is budgeted to the cent. You’re getting ready to dig in and start the actual work.
You’re feeling confident that the project is going to go exactly as planned. How could anything go wrong?
Managing is the third phase of project management. You may be tempted to think now that the planning is over the rest of the project will be easy.

The Cardinal Brotherhood has been dormant for a thousand years—the seven deadly sins in physical form. Once the strongest demons in the Underworld, their power was weakened when Lucifer ordered the death of Luxure and his mate.

Estranged from The Cardinal Brotherhood, Lux has been roaming the Earth for a thousand years, biding his time until he can avenge the murder of his mate. Once upon a time, he was Lucifer’s second-in-command, and the most revered warrior of the Underworld. Presumed dead, he’s been lying in wait, readying himself for revenge.

Lux is the deadliest of sins, but you know him as Lust.

The day Sirena Sovende crosses his path, her carefully constructed world begins to crumble, uncovering earth-shattering revelations that could threaten not only her life, but the very foundation of mankind.

As the reality of her existence unfolds, Lux begins to question everything he’s ever known, and makes the decision to reunite The Cardinal Brotherhood.

—–

Kadedus’s very existence is based on reading people, finding the one thing they want more than anything and exploiting it. You know him as ENVY.

With word that Lux is alive spreading throughout the realms, Kade must decide where his loyalties lie. When forced to trust Selma, Lux’s best friend, she surprises him at every turn, making his decision that much harder. Will he sell his brother out to ensure his own survival, destroying his own happiness in the process? Or will he finally learn to control his primal nature and stand with The Cardinal Brotherhood?

The Cardinal Brotherhood is a paranormal powerhouse series, and an incredible journey of humanity, spirituality, and romance. This box set includes books 1 and 2 of the series.

*These books are part of an ongoing series. Book 3, Gier, will release later in 2021.

As Tom’s relationship with Susan deepens, he reveals to her the turbulent history of the Wingo family, and exposes the truth behind the fateful day that changed their lives forever.
 
Drawing richly from the author’s own troubled upbringing, The Prince of Tides is a sweeping, powerful novel of unlocking the past to overcome the darkest of personal demons—it’s Pat Conroy at his very best.

DESCRIPTION:

The Cardinal Brotherhood has been dormant for a thousand years—the seven deadly sins in physical form. Once the strongest demons in the Underworld, their power was weakened when Lucifer ordered the death of Luxure and his mate.

Estranged from The Cardinal Brotherhood, Lux has been roaming the Earth for a thousand years, biding his time until he can avenge the murder of his mate. Once upon a time, he was Lucifer’s second-in-command, and the most revered warrior of the Underworld. Presumed dead, he’s been lying in wait, readying himself for revenge.

Lux is the deadliest of sins, but you know him as Lust.

The day Sirena Sovende crosses his path, her carefully constructed world begins to crumble, uncovering earth-shattering revelations that could threaten not only her life, but the very foundation of mankind.

As the reality of her existence unfolds, Lux begins to question everything he’s ever known, and makes the decision to reunite The Cardinal Brotherhood.

With word that Lux is alive spreading throughout the realms, Kade must decide where his loyalties lie.

Will he sell his brother out to ensure his own survival, destroying his own happiness in the process? Or will he finally learn to control his primal nature and stand with The Cardinal Brotherhood?

DESCRIPTION:

Is an inheritance a privilege or a right?

Margaret, the matriarch of the wealthy Jamieson family, has always been as tightfisted with the family money as she is with her affections. Sarah is the eldest child and although successful in her own right, her achievements are overshadowed by her younger brother. Sarah feels compelled to meet Margaret’s every demand to earn her love.

After a poverty-stricken childhood, Anita has claimed the social status she’s worked so hard to achieve by marrying Cameron Jamieson. Although they have a comfortable life, she’s never able to fully relax, fearing everything could change in a heartbeat.

Ellie, the youngest, has lived a nomadic and—according to her siblings—a selfish life, leaving them to care for their aging mother. For her, freedom means staying far away from the strings attached to her inheritance, but she needs to consider her young son’s future as well.

As their mother’s health deteriorates, will long-held secrets and childhood rivalries smash this family into pieces? And who will get the money?

DESCRIPTION:

The story of the Salem Witch Trials told through the lives of six women

Six Women of Salem is the first work to use the lives of a select number of representative women as a microcosm to illuminate the larger crisis of the Salem witch trials. By the end of the trials, beyond the twenty who were executed and the five who perished in prison, 207 individuals had been accused, 74 had been "afflicted," 32 had officially accused their fellow neighbors, and 255 ordinary people had been inexorably drawn into that ruinous and murderous vortex, and this doesn't include the religious, judicial, and governmental leaders. All this adds up to what the Rev. Cotton Mather called "a desolation of names."

The individuals involved are too often reduced to stock characters and stereotypes when accuracy is sacrificed to indignation. And although the flood of names and detail in the history of an extraordinary event like the Salem witch trials can swamp the individual lives involved, individuals still deserve to be remembered and, in remembering specific lives, modern readers can benefit from such historical intimacy. By examining the lives of six specific women, Marilynne Roach shows readers what it was like to be present throughout this horrific time and how it was impossible to live through it unchanged.
