Garden of Her Heart by Shanna Hatfield

Can forbidden love blossom amid the constraints of war? A sweet World War II romance from USA Today Bestselling Author Shanna Hatfield

The moment the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, life shifted for Miko Nishimura. Desperate to reach the Portland Assembly Center for Japanese Americans, she’s kicked off the bus miles from town. Every tick of the clock pushes her closer to becoming a fugitive in the land of her birth. Exhausted, she stumbles to her grandparents’ abandoned farm only to find a dying soldier sprawled across the step. Unable to leave him, she forsakes all else to keep him alive.

After crashing his plane in the Battle of the Atlantic, the doctors condemn Captain Rock Laroux to die. Determined to meet his maker beneath a blue sky at his family home, he sneaks out of the hospital. Weary and half out of his mind, he makes it as far as a produce stand he remembers from his youth. Rather than surrender to death, Rock fights a battle of the heart as he falls in love with the beautiful Japanese woman who saves his life.

A poignant, sweet romance, Garden of Her Heart proves love can bloom in unlikely places even under the most challenging circumstances.

Healing Wisdom for a Wounded World: My Life-Changing Journey Through a Shamanic School by Weam Namou

When one day Namou sits down to write her next book, she feels resistance in her fingertips and a void in her spirit. She soon realizes that years of struggling in her writing career, witnessing the war in her birth country, Iraq, and juggling her responsibilities as a housewife and mother has caused her to lose her literary voice.

On a quest to once more find her voice, she comes across Writing Spirit, a book that rejuvenates her love for her career. When she calls the author, Lynn Andrews, for some literary advice, she has no idea that the one-hour call will lead her to four years of training in Lynn s shamanic school without walls. Here, she will face her innermost fears and heal her deepest wounds, in order to be reborn into a state of new potential.

Namou s story reveals how to track the events in your life that lead you to your individual truth. As you take her journey through Healing Wisdom for a Wounded World, you see yourself in each page and you witness how ancient teachings helped transform the life of a twenty-first century writer, wife, and mother.

So this is it: your marriage is ending.

It might have come as a shock, or maybe it was a long time coming. You might be the one leaving, or the one left behind. No matter how you got here, you are now standing at the edge of the unknown, peering down a path that will be entirely different from the one you were on. You know you need to start taking steps forward. How do you begin?

When author Laura Scott was going through her divorce, she struggled to find a book that offered the right balance of guidance, support, positivity, and understanding. The Accidental Divorcée is just that: a useful, heartening handbook for anyone navigating the twists and turns of divorce. Part guide to getting through the toughest times, part collection of stories from others experiencing divorce, this easy-to-read, accessible book is packed with insights, tips, and survival tools for all the challenges to come.

You will get through this, and you will move on. You can start now.
