Laundry Can Wait is a straight-talking, no nonsense dialogue between author and reader. On this carefully crafted journey, you'll see how forming visions, goals, and making memories are the keys to a happy life. You are invited to delve in and discover how, as women, we prioritize other things that may be urgent over what matters most: creating a lifetime of memories for you and your family. We get so busy, we forget about creating balance in our roles as women, wives, and moms. You will read stories about "great mommy moments" and other days when there should have been a "do-over" button. Above all else, you will learn how you can be the "Best Mom in the Whole Wide World" for your child! So pull up a chair and know that Laundry Can Wait! Dorothy Cadet has three lovely children (Victoria, Jimmy and Gabriella), and is the wife of an amazing husband, James.

Having worked with the parents of thousands of adolescents and young adults, she discovered her love for women's issues. She has spent five of the last ten years teaching and ministering to women in all environments. This book has been a labor of love for her, and she truly hopes that women are rejuvenated and transformed into the best woman, wife and mother imaginable.

Four destinies collide in a unique fantasy world of war and wonders, where empire is won with enchanted steel and magical animal companions fight alongside their masters in battle. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • Tordotcom • Kirkus Reviews A soldier with a curse Tala lost her family to the empress’s army and has spent her life avenging them in battle. But the empress’s crimes don’t haunt her half as much as the crimes Tala has committed against the laws of magic . . . and against her own flesh and blood. A prince with a debt Jimuro has inherited the ashes of an empire. Now that the revolution has brought down his kingdom, he must depend on Tala to bring him home safe. But it was his army who murdered her family. Now Tala will be his redemption—or his downfall. A detective with a grudge Xiulan is an eccentric, pipe-smoking detective who can solve any mystery—but the biggest mystery of all is her true identity. She’s a princess in disguise, and she plans to secure her throne by presenting her father with the ultimate prize: the world’s most wanted prince. A thief with a broken heart Lee is a small-time criminal who lives by only one law: Leave them before they leave you. But when Princess Xiulan asks her to be her partner in crime—and offers her a magical animal companion as a reward—she can’t say no, and she soon finds she doesn’t want to leave the princess behind. This band of rogues and royals should all be enemies, but they unite for a common purpose: to defeat an unstoppable killer who defies the laws of magic. In this battle, they will forge unexpected bonds of friendship and love that will change their lives—and begin to change the world.
