'At a time when I needed a lift, this novel came into my life.' 5* Reader Review Amy Piper is in need of a bit of luck. She’s lost her confidence, her mojo and her way. But one thing she has never lost is her total love for her thirteen-year-old son Joey, and for his sake she knows it’s time for a change. But first she has to be brave enough to leave the house... What she needs are friends and an adventure. And when she joins a running group of women who call themselves The Larks, she finds both. Not to mention their inspiring (and rather handsome) coach, Nathan. The trick to changing your life, is to take it one day at a time. Now, with every ounce of strength she has left, Amy is determined to make just one day special - for herself and for Joey. And who knows, today might be the day that changes everything...

The story of the queen who defied convention and defined an era A passionate princess, an astute and clever queen, and a cunning widow, Victoria played many roles throughout her life. In Queen Victoria: Twenty-Four Days That Changed Her Life, Lucy Worsley introduces her as a woman leading a truly extraordinary life in a unique time period. Queen Victoria simultaneously managed to define a socially conservative vision of Victorian womanhood, while also defying its conventions. Beneath her exterior image of traditional daughter, wife, and widow, she was a strong-willed and masterful politician. Drawing from the vast collection of Victoria’s correspondence and the rich documentation of her life, Worsley recreates twenty-four of the most important days in Victoria's life. Each day gives a glimpse into the identity of this powerful, difficult queen and the contradictions that defined her. Queen Victoria is an intimate introduction to one of Britain’s most iconic rulers as a wife and widow, mother and matriarch, and above all, a woman of her time.

Throughout our lives we face many challenges. Life can be wonderful but life can also be harsh. As a teen i had no self esteem, lacked confidence and felt i was alone. I didn't really know how to express myself and i didn't have anyone to discuss my problems with.Like so many troubled teenagers, i thought there was no point in living and i even attempted suicide. I wanted to share my experiences in the hope that others can realise there is a point to living and no matter how lonely or down you feel, you get through it. This book covers my life from childhood through to the age of 40. There are many stories, some will make you laugh and some will make you cry. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Daniel Gutierrez, the world's #1 Latino motivator, shares the story of how he personally stepped into greatness. But everyone has a story, and Gutierrez shows how it's not our story but what we choose to do with it that determines our personal and professional success. Instead of offering blueprints or how-to plans, Dan encourages readers to cultivate their own strengths, map their own plans for success, live their own dreams, discover their true passion, be unafraid to challenge their beliefs, and know when to say yes to their own greatness and no to the attitudes, mishaps and tragedies that hold us back and keep us from stepping into our greatest potential.
