Book Short Summary:

What is the difference between justice and revenge? In this “heart-stopping thriller” (Publishers Weekly) with “plenty of action” (Kirkus Reviews) by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Unger, two wronged women on very different paths find themselves in the same dark place… Claudia Bishop’s perfect life fell apart when the aftermath of a brutal assault left her with a crumbling marriage, a newborn daughter, and a constant sense of anxiety about the world around her. Now, looking for a fresh start with a home restoration project and growing blog, Claudia takes on a crumbling old house—one that unbeknownst to her has an ugly history and may hide long buried secrets. For Zoey Drake the defining moment of her childhood was the horrific home invasion murder of her parents. Years later, she has embraced the rage that fuels her. Training in the martial arts has made her strong and ready to face the demons from the past—and within. Strangers to each other, and walking very different paths in the wake of trauma, these two women are on a collision course—because Zoey’s past nightmare and Claudia’s dreams for her future take place in the very same house. As Zoey seeks justice, and Claudia seeks peace, both will confront the monsters at the door that are the most frightening of all. “The Red Hunter succeeds as a suspense novel on every level. It has a meticulously-woven plot, multi-layered characters, and the irony most desired by storytellers: Where the reader can’t wait to see how it ends, but then is remorseful when it does.” —Sandra Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Book Short Summary:

In the small town of North River, every day that goes by bleeds into the next. Poverty begets hopelessness, hopelessness breeds violence, violence causes despair. The only way to change fate, a minister tells his son, is to leave. The minister’s son, Jake MacNeil, chooses to ignore his father’s advice. Only when he realizes what has become of his life — working a grueling dead-end job, living with a drunk, friends with a murderer — does he decide to make something of himself. But nothing comes without a cost: in choosing freedom, Jake abandons his own son, Nathan, to the care of the boy’s abusive mother. Years later, a reformed Jake comes back for Nathan, to finally set things right. But in North River, everything comes around again; and when a dangerous figure from the past becomes hell-bent on dragging the new Jake “back down where he belongs”, three generations of MacNeil men must come together to pay the full price of hope. Gritty, unrelenting, yet peppered with Darren Greer’s trademark poignance, Just Beneath My Skin is the work of an author at the height of his game.

Book Short Summary:

In Born to Dance (1936), Virginia Bruce tempted James Stewart while introducing Cole Porter's "I've Got You Under My Skin." That same year, she dazzled as the archetypal showgirl in the Oscar-winning The Great Ziegfeld. Fans and critics saw her poised for major stardom at MGM. Delve into her turbulent life and career. In James Robert Parish's Foreword, he notes Virginia's quiet charisma, the haunted, distracted look of her eyes, her vibrant voice, and her "off-screen life . . . far more exciting and exotic than any role she experienced on camera." Love was very important to Virginia. She fell hard for screen idol John Gilbert during their filming of Downstairs (1932). When the virile, yet deeply troubled Gilbert proposed marriage, Hollywood held its collective breath. The merger ended in divorce, but provided the basis for the Selznick's A Star is Born (1937). Virginia's career took off, but the question was, "Did Louis B. Mayer have it in for her?" Mayer had hated Gilbert. After a brief, idyllic, yet tragic second marriage to director-producer J. Walter Ruben, Virginia's career focused more on radio, and an occasional "B" film. Her marriage to a young Turk, Ali Ipar in 1946 provided another unusual twist to Virginia's life, and ultimately a bittersweet ending. Includes over 130 photos.

Book Short Summary:

Gaby Mortimer seems to have just about everything: a great job on a popular TV morning show, a handsome and successful husband, an adorable eight-year-old daughter, a comfortable life in the “Toast Rack,” one of London’s most gracious neighbourhoods. When she discovers the strangled, lifeless body of a young woman on the common near her house, she has no idea that her charmed life is about to go into sickening freefall. There are connections between the two women—some of Gaby’s clothes are found in the dead woman’s apartment; the woman may have been seeking a job as a nanny for Gaby’s daughter. As Gaby is pulled into the investigation, the underlying tensions in her own life start coming to the surface, and frightening truths seem destined to come to light, whether she wants them to or not. Suspenseful, stylish and eerie, and peopled with characters who feel as real and close as your friends and neighbours, Under Your Skin is an irresistible page-turner about how we live—and how easily it can all fall apart.

One day Donna Jackson Nakazawa found herself lying on the floor to recover from climbing the stairs. That’s when it hit her. She was managing the symptoms of the autoimmune disorders that had plagued her for a decade, but she had lost her joy. As a science journalist, she was curious to know what mind-body strategies might help her. As a wife and mother she was determined to get her life back. Over the course of one year, Nakazawa researches and tests a variety of therapies including meditation, yoga, and acupuncture to find out what works. But the discovery of a little-known branch of research into Adverse Childhood Experiences causes her to have an epiphany about her illness that not only stuns her—it turns her life around. Perfect for readers of Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project, Nakazawa shares her unexpected discoveries, amazing improvements, and shows readers how they too can find their own last best cure.

Book Short Summary:

Despite winning the Nobel Prize for Literature, Doris Lessing has received relatively little critical attention. One of the reasons for this is that Lessing has spent much of her lifetime and her long published writing career crossing both national and ideological borders. This essay collection reflects and explores the incredible variety of Lessing's border crossings and positions her writing in its various social and cultural contexts. Lessing crosses literal national borders in her life and work, but more controversial have been her crossings of genre borders into sci-fi and "space fiction", and her crossing of ideological borders such as moving into and out of the Communist Party and from a colonial into a post-colonial world. This timely collection also considers a number of the most interesting recent critical and theoretical approaches to Lessing's writing, including work on maternity and abjection in relation to The Fifth Child and The Grass is Singing, eco-criticism in Lessing's 'Ifrakan' novels, and postcolonial re-writings of landscape in her African Stories.

Book Short Summary:

Crossing borders and boundaries, countries and cultures, they are the children of the military, diplomatic corps, international business, education and missions communities. They are called Third Culture Kids or Global Nomads, and the many benefits of their lifestyle – expanded worldview, multiplicity of languages, tolerance for difference – are often mitigated by recurring losses – of relationships, of stability, of permanent roots. They are part of an accelerating demographic that is only recently coming into visibility. In this groundbreaking collection, writers from around the world address issues of language acquisition and identity formation, childhood mobility and adaptation, memory and grief, and the artist’s struggle to articulate the experience of growing up global. And, woven like a thread through the entire collection, runs the individual’s search for belonging and a place called “home.” This book provides a major leap in understanding what it’s like to grow up among worlds. It is invaluable reading for the new global age.

Book Short Summary:

Every book starts with an idea that transforms into an outline, that only later becomes a story. No one ever writes a book alone. This book was written in such a way that my daily ups and down were constantly used as my eyes to see inspiration around me. Connecting my personal experiences in life to the things my eyes saw. The purpose of this book is to emphasize the deep spiritual values that one has in oneself. It is a collection of short stories of my days, from how I feel or what inspired me on that day. It reflects my vision and dreams and I hope that as you read this book that you, as a reader, will be inspired too.
