There is a moment in all of our lives when we realise that things are not going as we'd planned . . . . . . that there is a significant gap between what we thought our life was going to be and how it's actually shaping up. Elly Varrenti knows this only too well. Childhood dreams give way to ill-fated careers, desperate loves and crazy Christmas lunches. But in between navigating the fierce bonds of family, endless co-parenting arrangements and complex relationships with the opposite sex, she finds there are unexpected moments of hilarity and joy. Elly Varrenti's memoir is about living life at full tilt, even if it means facing up to a life that's not anything like the one you dreamt of. Smart and wry, touching and dead honest, this is a remarkable, unconventional story from a woman who could be any one of us.

ONE OF PUBLISHERS WEEKLY'S TEN MOST ANTICIPATED MEMOIRS OF THE SEASON IF YOU THINK IT SUCKS TO LIVE WITH YOUR PARENTS WHEN YOU’RE THIRTY-SIX AND NINE MONTHS PREGNANT, JUST WAIT TILL THE DEA COMES KNOCKING (WITH THE IRS IN TOW): WELCOME TO VICTORIA FEDDEN’S LIFE. When a squad of federal agents burst through her parents’ front door, Victoria Fedden felt ill-prepared to meet them: She was weeks away from her due date and her T-shirt wasn’t long enough to hide her maternity undies. As for the question of how to raise a child when you’ve just discovered that your mother and stepfather have allegedly masterminded a pump-and-dump scheme? She was pretty sure that wasn’t covered in What to Expect When You’re Expecting—and she really hoped that Bradford Cohen, the noted criminal defense attorney who famously waived his exemption on The Apprentice, would prove them innocent. This Is Not My Beautiful Life is the story of how Victoria lost her parents to prison and nearly lost her mind. No one ever said motherhood would be easy, but as she struggles to change diapers, install car seats, and find the right drop-off line at pre-school—no easy task, when each one is named for a stage in the lifecycle of a f*cking butterfly—she’s also forced to ask herself whether a jump-suit might actually complement her mom’s platinum-blonde extensions and fend off the cast of shady, stranger-than-fiction characters (like the recovering addict who scored a reality show when he started an escort service for women) who populated her parents’ world. A real-life Arrested Development that could only unfold in southern Florida, This Is Not My Beautiful Life is a hilariously funny and unexpectedly moving memoir of a just-functional family you’ll never forget.

Every so often, our practical, science-dominated world is gifted with a mystic; a spirit-based, spirit-directed person. The world doesn't know how to deal with these people. They are disrespected at the very least, often bullied, sometimes drugged into submission and even institutionalized. Without recognition and support, the mystic believes there is something wrong with them. Unhealed, these individuals may abuse themselves. . . to the point that they might even consider killing themselves. . . and do so. This book chronicles the author's 40-year journey of healing and personal growth; learning to accept himself as a gifted, hypersensitive, gay mystic. Mismatched to the norms and demands of his family, home religion, peers, and society, the author was a depressed, immature, and fearful recluse for 26 years of his life. Contemplating suicide at age 21, he heard a Voice. Learning to listen and follow that Voice, the author employed a range of traditional—and untraditional—religious and spiritual thought systems. The span of "technologies" include western and eastern religions, Quakerism, Twelve Step programs, the Course in Miracles, Men's work, past life regression, and channeling (automatic writing). In a Vision, this nontheist, birthright Jew realized to his surprise that The Voice guiding him on his journey was Jesus. Hineni is an intensely personal and frank autobiography; an ethical will of how the author became a whole, human being, and what he learned and is still learning on his journey. This book can start a reader thinking about places s/he have been spiritually, as well as the places s/he might go. Hineni clearly shows that life is a journey; not a destination. That the tools and guides on that journey are personal integrity and inner guidance. And that any time or effort spent learning in any community or spiritual discipline is never a waste, because any and all efforts and understanding get incorporated in who that person is becoming. . . and we are all "becoming" until we leave the planet. The reader is encouraged—and challenged—to ask what s/he knows and believes on the basic questions of being human. . . being a spiritual being having a human experience.

"Marcia and I were married September 30, 1994, and were together nineteen years and four days when she passed away October 2013. She was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's in 2000, when she was only forty-nine years of age. I was Marcia's 24-7 caregiver from 2007 until her passing. This was the second marriage for us both, and we were a textbook example of how a happy life together should be. We lived in a small community on Lake Oliver, directly across the lake from Columbus, Georgia. I am retired and am writing this book based on the personal experience of having watched the thirteen years of progression of Alzheimer's disease and how it changed a beautiful, vibrant lady to the shell of what she once was when she passed from this earth. Having to watch someone you love dearly die a day at a time, with the only thing that can be done is keeping them comfortable, is a very excruciating experience, and hopefully, reading our journey through this progression will help others who have a loved one with this disease understand what the future holds for them and their loved one"--Page 4 of cover.

Punctuated with humor, insight, and essential money management lessons, The Broke and Beautiful Life offers practical strategies to make smarter financial decisions today as a means to fulfill the goals and dreams of tomorrow. Specializing in personal finance (with an emphasis on personal), Stefanie engages those who shy away from the word "investing," scoff at the word "budget," and equate interest rates with "snooze fest." She encourages readers to redefine their relationship with money and approach budgeting as an exciting and sexy tool to transform from broke to beautiful while enjoying every step along the way.

Writing with “a delicate, beautiful balance of wit and yearning” (#1 New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert), Rebecca Barry’s poignant take on creativity, marriage, and motherhood will make you laugh and cry—sometimes at the same time. When Rebecca Barry, writer, mother, cat lady, and aspiring meditator, and her husband moved to upstate New York to start their family, they were optimistic that they’d be able to build a life they’d love: one connected to nature and extended family, one where they could invest in their artistic dreams, spend time with their children, live cheaply, and eat well. Naturally, things didn’t turn out to be so simple: the lovely old house they bought to fix up needed lots of repair, their children wouldn’t sleep, and the novel Rebecca had dreamed of writing simply wouldn’t come to her. “Anecdotal, funny, and telling, with the kinds of momentary glimpses of ordinary days that reflect something larger” (The New York Times), Recipes for a Beautiful Life is about reveling in the extraordinary moments in daily life while trying to balance marriage, children, extended family, and creative work. The book is an excellent companion for mothers with small children, but it also speaks to anyone trying to find meaning in their work or a life that is truer to the heart. Full of great dialogue, tongue-in-cheek recipes (Angry Mommy Tea), and tips on things like how to keep your house clean (“just don’t let anyone in”), Recipes captures the sweetness and beauty of answering your soul’s longing, as well as the difficulty, struggle, and humor that goes along with it. Mostly it is about the realization that a beautiful life, for this author, meant a rich, often chaotic, creative one. Or, as Redbook said when it featured the book in its “5 fabulous, even life-changing new reads” column: “Contentment isn’t about getting everything…but finding magic in the mess.”

A Beautiful Life recollects my life journey as it unfolded from the glorious days of a young boy enchanted by his Grandfather's stories to the present, where the young boy is now a Grandfather himself. Along the way there have been many wrong turns and a lot of personal pain but somehow, through the healing power of writing and those around me at the time who cared, the passion for life survived. The book includes many poems written at the time of the experiences, which provide insight into my wellbeing and how I dealt with the situation. These poems I now view as Primary sources and the Spiritual Signposts which directed me forward along the way. Of course, my work as a Teacher of students not born in Australia, features heavily throughout the book. As I provided them with the tools of a new language, they rewarded me with their stories of survival and hope for the future. This interactional process of teaching and learning enriched the lives of everyone involved. And finally you the reader. I am certain that you will see yourself somewhere amongst the pages.
