Book Excerpt :

This is a book about an ancient practice of decorating the body. For centuries in cultures all around the world, applying artistic designs on the body has been a way to celebrate and honor special occasions in one’s life. Our book is about the origin and practice of mehndi. In the text, we discuss the preparation and application of henna paste, the medicinal and healing properties of the plant, and the differences in design styles around the world. We also discuss the use of henna in religious and ritualistic ceremonies, although today it can be appreciated and enjoyed just for fun. Our book is written for both primary (ages three to six) and elementary (ages seven to twelve) school children, though adults interested in the art of mehndi will enjoy it too. We hope this book will help you to know and appreciate the very special art of henna designs.

It’s the spring of 1969, and Lakshmi, now married to Dr. Jay Kumar, directs the Healing Garden in Shimla. Malik has finished his private school education. At twenty, he has just met a young woman named Nimmi when he leaves to apprentice at the Facilities Office of the Jaipur Royal Palace. Their latest project: a state-of-the-art cinema. Malik soon finds that not much has changed as he navigates the Pink City of his childhood. Power and money still move seamlessly among the wealthy class, and favors flow from Jaipur’s Royal Palace, but only if certain secrets remain buried. When the cinema’s balcony tragically collapses on opening night, blame is placed where it is convenient. But Malik suspects something far darker and sets out to uncover the truth. As a former street child, he always knew to keep his own counsel; it’s a lesson that will serve him as he untangles a web of lies.

When Jameela Mirza is picked to be feature editor of her middle school newspaper, she’s one step closer to being an award-winning journalist like her late grandfather. The problem is her editor-in-chief keeps shooting down her article ideas.

Book Short Summary:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER An intimate and no-holds-barred memoir by Canada's top defence lawyer, Nothing But the Truth weaves Marie Henein's personal story with her strongly held views on society's most pressing issues, legal and otherwise. With Nothing But the Truth, Marie Henein, arguably the most sought-after lawyer in the country, has written a memoir that is at once raw, beautiful, and altogether unforgettable. Her story, as an immigrant from a tightknit Egyptian-Lebanese family, demonstrates the value of strong role models--from her mother and grandmother, to her brilliant uncle Sami who died of AIDS. She learned the value of hard work, being true to herself and others, and unapologetically owning it all. Marie Henein shares here her unvarnished view on the ethical and practical implications of being a criminal lawyer, and how the job is misunderstood and even demonized. Ironically, her most successful cases made her a "lightning rod" in some circles, confirming her belief that much of the public's understanding of the justice system is based on popular culture, and social media, and decidedly not the rule of law. As she turns 50 and struggles with the corrosive effect on women of becoming invisible, Marie doubles down on being even more highly visible and opinionated as she deconstructs, among other things, the otherness of the immigrant experience (Where are you really from?), the pros and cons of being a household name in this country, opening her own boutique law firm, and the likes of Martha Stewart and her commoditization of previously unpaid female labour. Nothing But the Truth is refreshingly unconstrained and surprising--a woman at the top of her game in a male-dominated world.

Book Short Summary:

They're older. They're wiser. So why aren't they finding Mr. Right? The feisty heroines of The Perfect Date series are seasoned about life and romance, but not necessarily wiser about love. The stories in this collection are romantic comedies with attitude. Book 7 - Never Look Back Her real life is no fairy tale and she’s no Cinderella. After what her ex-husband did to her, heiress Henna Colombo is a man-hater, not a dater. And the thing she hates most of all is the fairytale of falling in love. Why do her father and her new wicked stepmother insist she keeps looking for her prince? She’s fine being single. As far as Henna’s concerned, the love god can take his diaper-wrapped butt and arrows elsewhere. Cupid can also shove those arrows where the sun doesn’t shine if he thinks for one second that someone like Vassal Milano is her perfect man. Book 8 - Never Ever Been Better The last thing Iris needs is a man with his head in the clouds. Most days Iris can’t believe that she actually left her home and country for a smooth-talking jerk who tossed her into the street first chance he got. A woman has to view that sort of thing as life lesson. Her mum raised her to be a survivor, and that includes understanding her worst enemy is herself when it comes to good-looking men. Book 9 - Never Too Old To Date Her business is wildly successful, but the rest of her life is just wild. Sixty may be the new forty, but not for the Honorable Eleanor J. Skyler. She's retiring from the law firm she spent her entire career building. What's wrong with wanting to wear yoga clothes every day and go zip-lining whenever the adventurous mood strikes? Nothing, that's what. She's got no time for dating and drama. She certainly has no time to deal with her senior law partner, Andrew Carson, who has for reasons she can't fathom, decided she's his perfect woman. Why is Andrew suddenly looking at her legs and telling her she's beautiful? He's barely over fifty. He has the tiny sports car. Why can't Andrew chase a twenty-year-old like every other man having a mid-life crisis?

Book Short Summary:

Spirit of Heroes Book 3 of the Heroes Series Noah "No" Argentar is the new leader of the group of heroes known as The Faction. They have defeated the Nephilim, but the Great Tribulation has begun and an even more dangerous enemy is now loose in the world-the dark gods. No's investigation of a string of seemingly unsolvable rabbi murders leads him back into contact with his estranged father. The young hero discovers there was more to his father's life than he could ever have imagined. The story of their ancestor, the patriarch Levi and his association with The Faction may hold the key to the plans of the dark gods. Walter Wilson is a disturbed teen who has been fighting invisible battles. No has already recruited two new troublesome members into The Faction, but Walter may prove to be the most dangerous of them all. Meanwhile, an alien race has been contacting Sabrina in her dreams. As she struggles to understand their history, she must determine if they're friend or foe. She knows it won't be long until they want something from her. Ultimately, No, Sabrina, and the rest of The Faction must confront the greatest riddle mankind has never solved-why was Lucifer convinced he could conquer heaven and could the dark gods succeed where Lucifer failed?

Book Short Summary:

“A touching coming-of-age story” (Publishers Weekly) in the tradition of Anita Diamant’s The Red Tent, about a young woman, her family, their community and the customs that bind them, from “a storyteller of uncommon energy and poise” (Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times). This vivid saga begins in Yemen in 1920. Adela Damari’s parents’ health is failing as they desperately seek a future husband for their young daughter, who is in danger of becoming adopted by the local Muslim community if she is orphaned. With no likely marriage prospects, Adela’s situation looks dire—until she meets two cousins from faraway cities: a boy with whom she shares her most treasured secret, and a girl who introduces her to the powerful rituals of henna. Ultimately, Adela’s life journey brings her old and new loves, her true calling, and a new life as she is transported to Israel as part of Operation On Wings of Eagles. Rich, evocative, and enthralling, Henna House is an intimate family portrait interwoven with the traditions of the Yemenite Jews and the history of the Holocaust and Israel. This sensuous tale of love, loss, betrayal, forgiveness—and the dyes that adorn the skin and pierce the heart—will captivate readers until the very last page.

Book Short Summary:

'The women arrive first, on an afternoon like any other, when Henna is safely enclosed behind her desk at school. They come to start a conversation that is both taboo and a normal part of life. A small, intimate group . . . precious stones decorate their necks and fingers, the sond, embroidery, on their pantaloons and translucent veils catches the afternoon light. Their eyebrows are groomed into elegant curves. They float on a cloud of perfume to Henna's family home.' A deeply moving novel about tradition, love, war and the sorrow & hope exile will bring. Tracing the lives of three young people, Henna, her brother Hamid, and a man who will become her husband, Rahim, this lyrical and evocative story reveals the political entanglements and family dynamics that are heightened and shattered by conflict. Taking us from the streets of Herat in the 1970s, invaded by Soviet forces, to India in the 1980s and then to the suburbs of Sydney, Pomegranate & Fig vividly illuminates the disruption, displacement and tragedy that war unleashes. Shortlisted for the Richell Prize, this is an unforgettable debut that heralds an exciting new Australian literary voice.
