'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.

The Spiritual Gift That Changed My Life was written to bring people closer to God’s grace and love. It will show how God works in mysterious ways and the path he wants you to follow. My faith was tested so many times in life where I came so close to giving up. However, unbeknownst to me, God had other plans. Ever since I was a child, growing up in Detroit, I knew there was something unusual about me. I started having visions and dreams at the age of seven. These dreams were mostly about my deceased great-grandmother. She told me that I had a gift and it would mean so much to others when I got older. I tried to avoid going to sleep because these dreams scared me. It wasn’t until I had my first near-death encounter that I realized everything she told me was true. In 2009, I was in a bad car accident and almost died. At this time, I began having visions while I was awake and asleep. The visions were of people I didn’t know and places I’ve never been. I was experiencing déjà vu every day. I felt that this was God’s way of trying to get my attention. However, I ignored these signs, and I was still determined to do things my way. In 2011, I was a victim of an attempted robbery and shot twice. I was rushed to the hospital. The doctors couldn’t believe I was still alive and how the bullets never entered my body. In 2014, my ignorance and eating habits landed me back in the hospital. This time was different, and I took it more seriously. I was tired of running from my gift, and I knew that the Lord had great intentions for me. I had been given another chance, and it was time for me to start living for my purpose.

The events surrounding Christ's Passion really happened, and the people who experienced those events were real people, just like us--individuals with their own histories, preconceptions, desires, and ambitions. In The Day That Changed Forever, Dr. Tim Roehl tells the stories of those events and people, using a combination of rigorous biblical scholarship and what he calls "sanctified imagination." What must Barabbas have been thinking when he was set free so that an innocent man could die in his place? What went through the mind of Simon of Cyrene when he was drafted by Roman soldiers to carry Jesus' cross? What led Annas, a religious leader, to use his influence to condemn Jesus to death? Sometimes a story can become so familiar that it begins to lose its power to startle and amaze its audience--it can be tempting for Christians to think they "know" the story of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection while forgetting to be changed by it. The unique viewpoints of the people at the cross, imagined with compelling realism in The Day That Changed Forever, will bring fresh perspective to the familiar events and awaken in readers a newfound passion for the old, old story.
