You don't remember her--but she remembers you. Two different women; two different worlds. On the face of it, Emma and Nina have very little in common. Isolated and exhausted by early motherhood, Emma finds her confidence is fading fast. Nina is sophisticated and assured, a successful artist who seems to have it all under control. And yet, when the two women meet, they are irresistibly drawn to each other. As the friendship develops, as Emma gratefully invites Nina into her life, it emerges that someone is playing games-and the stakes could not be higher. What, exactly, does Nina see in Emma? What does she want? And how far will she go in pursuit of it? A gripping novel about friendship and identity, about the wild hopes and worst fears of parenthood, about the small and easily forgotten moments that come to define a life, Her is unputdownable-compelling and hauntingly discomfiting.

The book is a self-help book to help victims of abuse or misfortune find their way out of the maze of disempowering beliefs that are accumulated as a result of the abuse or misfortune. Specifically, it is a guide to assist in reprogramming those negative beliefs. It also includes my own story of surviving various abuses and how I overcame the negative effects of these abuses: satanic abuse as a toddler; sexual, physical, and emotional abuse throughout my childhood/adolescence; intermittent rapes and suicidal tendencies; "battered wife's syndrome" as an adult; a severe auto accident in 1997; self-destructive habits acquired along life's path, and the resulting various abusive relationships engaged in because of the negative perceptions I gleaned and believed about myself. The main message is that we can regenerate ourselves, however we wish to do so after abuse and misfortune, through God's daily guidance, because each of us retains the ultimate power to do that, no matter what lies about ourselves that the perpetrators or seemingly unfortunate mishaps have planted into our minds. A loving, all-powerful God created us and we can use our God-given "free will" to REPROGRAM our own minds to accept the truth about ourselves: that we are amazing, wondrous, beautiful people, not because anything we have done or anything we can do in the future, but simply because God made us that way. We are good!

A groundbreaking book about how your personality type determines who you love Why do you fall in love with one person rather than another? In this fascinating and informative book, Helen Fisher, one of the world's leading experts on romantic love, unlocks the hidden code of desire and attachment. Each of us, it turns out, primarily expresses one of four broad personality types—Explorer, Builder, Director, or Negotiator—and each of these types is governed by different chemical systems in the brain. Driven by this biology, we are attracted to partners who both mirror and complement our own personality type. Until now the search for love has been blind, but Fisher pulls back the curtain and reveals how we unconsciously go about finding the right match. Drawing on her unique study of 40,000 men and women, she explores each personality type in detail and shows you how to identify your own type. Then she explains why some types match up well, whereas others are problematic. (Note to Explorers: be prepared for a wild ride when you hitch your star to a fellow Explorer!) Ultimately, Fisher's investigation into the complex nature of romance and attachment leads to astonishing new insights into the essence of dating, love, and marriage. Based on entirely new research—including a detailed questionnaire completed by seven million people in thirty-three countries—Why Him? Why Her? will change your understanding of why you love him (or her) and help you use nature's chemistry to find and keep your life partner.

With intelligence and crystalline clarity, a chorus of female voices speaks through the poems in Her book, Éireann Lorsung's inspired second collection. From the poet who brought us Music For Landing Planes By, Éireann Lorsung’s luminous voice is distilled through multiple unnamed female speakers in this, her second collection. Full of youth, wonder, and imagination, Her book crosses distances and generations to celebrate the lives of women, their individual and shared experiences, and the bonds that bring them together. This is also a book about translation (of experience into art, of knowledge across time and space) and conversation (with, for instance, work by Kiki Smith, widely known as a feminist artist). Lorsung writes additionally about her time spent in England and friendships she formed with women there. Together these poems comprise both her book (Lorsung’s), and hers (encompassing all who identify with that word).
