Part recovery, part self-help, and all real, raw stories of waking up for the sake of your self and your children, Mommy Doesn’t Drink Here Anymore follows one mother’s journey from cocktail mama to sober mama. The loving mother of twins and a newborn, Brownell used alcohol to maintain a sense of her adult self and be more than “just mommy.” It didn’t take long before her drinking spiraled out of control, consuming her life and marriage, and she realized that she needed serious help. Both heart-wrenching and inspiring, this is Brownell’s true-life story, from the first thirty days to the year mark. Mommy Doesn’t Drink Here Anymore is not a book that preaches or simply takes the reader through the Twelve Steps. It provides hope and motivation to get into a program and balance your life as a mother and a recovering alcoholic. Atem is a living Magus, an icon for the twenty-first century. Part transpersonal shaman, part inner guide, part inner healer, part role model, Atem becomes a personal therapist, a guide to self-discovery and self-initiation. Atem, as healing fiction, helps readers to create their own breakthroughs, their own catharsis - emotional clearing that frees energy from internal conflict to flow creatively into new expressions.

This book is not a how-to-guide. It won't tell you how to get your baby to sleep, how to deal with toddler tantrums, how to be a good parent, a cool parent or even a renegade parent. It is a book about parenting that contains absolutely no useful advice whatsoever. Instead it shares beautifully honest anecdotes and illustrations from the parenting frontline that demonstrate it is perfectly possible to love your children with the whole of your heart whilst finding them incredibly irritating at the same time. From pregnancy to starting school, Hurrah For Gin takes you through the exciting, frustrating, infuriating and wonderful whirlwind of parenthood, offering solidarity and a friendly hug after a tough day. Best served with gin.

It’s been six years since Mallory James left Moonglade, a former sugar plantation in the shadow of Australia’s magnificent rain forest. Now love and loyalty have called her home—but unspeakable secrets may compel her to flee once more… A successful child psychologist, Mallory has no wish to return to the tropical hideaway where she experienced so much pain. But her Uncle Robert is ailing and it’s only right that she be there for the man who came to her rescue when she was a lost, lonely child. At least he is not alone—his protégé, and Mallory’s rival for his affections, is also at his side. Blaine Forrester hasn’t lost his knack for getting under Mallory’s skin, taking her breath away and leaving her unsettled at the same time. While Robert recuperates, Mallory is shocked to learn that Jason Cartwright is on the payroll of his estate—the very man whose humiliating betrayal led her to leave North Queensland on the eve of her wedding. Confronting him—along with his wife and his manipulative twin sister—is a trial, though she can’t help forming a bond with little Ivy, Jason’s sickly daughter. But as tragedy strikes Moonglade, Mallory and Blaine will discover a darkness hidden within this deceptively beautiful world and their enigmatic circle—one that will either unite them at last, or tear apart the promise of paradise… “If you’ve never read Margaret Way before, you’re in for a treat!” --New York Times bestselling author Diana Palmer

If you feel like your kids are killing you, you’ve come to the right place. Attention all potty-mouthed, cheap-wine-drinking mothers: Prepare to meet your match. Any bad thought you’ve had about your kids, Nicole Knepper has had worse. Much worse. It’s not that she doesn’t love her kids. It’s that she understands what a mind-f*?% it can be to try to civilize those wild little beasts. Based on her hugely popular Facebook page, “Moms Who Drink and Swear,” this book reveals why family dinners are like herpes, how to avoid smashing toys that are being fought over, and the joy of hearing that your son has murdered his imaginary friend. As Nicole rants and raves about caring for children (without crushing their souls), family togetherness (without too many tears), the saving grace of girlfriends (and vodka), and love and marriage (and all the baggage that goes with them), she gets to the heart of what every exasperated mom is thinking, just much funnier.

A Room Without Toys is essentially the story of Victoria Windsor, beautiful and brilliantly gifted star of the London stage and apparently a woman to be envied. Yet when we go behind the velvet curtain which would ordinarily separate the actress from her audience, we find the reality of her life to be quite different. From a childhood which with one touching exception is a lonely one, we follow her through the frustration of endless auditions to the years of growing theatrical renown-years which at the same time are ironically the emptiest of her life-and finally to her meeting with the one man able to awaken her to her full potential, both as a human being and as a woman. The theme of all this is stated in the title for through much of Victoria’s life, she is indeed like a child in a room without toys. Many different elements combine to make this a compelling and yet highly readable novel. 1) A strong central character equally as fascinating as any of the real life actresses who has recently felt the urge to “tell all” in an autobiography. 2) The elegance and charm of its London setting-London with its theatres, its parks, its pubs, its centuries old association with the majesty of the British crown. 3) The glimpse it provides of the backstage world of the theatre-a world most people would otherwise never see. A Room Without Toys is more, however, than merely the whole constituted of these parts which are, after all, only things of the surface and the novel goes much deeper than that. Will a child starved for love and caring grow into an emotionally crippled adult for whom normal, interpersonal relationships are all but impossible? It is this vital psychological issue which the work attempts to explore as slowly Victoria Windsor learns to believe in herself, learns to trust and most important of all, learns to love.
