One summer, Melissa Cistaro's mother drove off without explanation Devastated, Melissa and her brothers were left to pick up the pieces, always tormented by the thought: Why did their mother abandon them? Thirty-five years later, with children of her own, Melissa finds herself in Olympia, Washington, as her mother is dying. After decades of hiding her painful memories, she has just days to find out what happened that summer and confront the fear she could do the same to her kids.

The initial idea for this work was to provide a space for a reader to record daily events in accordance to the date as recorded by my mother. What transpired is an abridged account of my mother’s last year of her life living at Luther Memorial Home in Mayville, North Dakota -- with added remarks and snippets of my life now in The Villages, Florida. Written in my mother’s aging hand, with extreme intellect and charm, the journal is a historical account of the daily life in a nursing facility. My Mother’s Journal portrays small matters that, when pieced together and seen from a distance, become large. Subsequently, her words are a rare gift and it is my hope that this will foster more such journaling. I would like to thank my early readers (Aunt Dorothy; my sister, Karen; my friend, Trish; and my step-daughter-in-law, Dixie) for their encouragement and support in completing this bittersweet and challenging project.

As the years move on I think many of us don't really consider the subtle but sometimes enormouschanges that can take place in the human mind over the course of time. We often hear people say, 'I'd love to be eighteen again and know what I know now'¦' but how many of us would want to put our past lives out there for the whole world to see; especially when the path that we've walked was chest deep in pain and turmoil?It was in January of 2006 that I decided to write PIECES OF MY PATH. What precipitated my putting finger to keyboard was located in a cardboard box, stashed away and wrapped in a black garbage bag high upon a shelf in the guest bedroom closet. I was thinking a lot about my 'dark days' and how far I had come from those crippling depressed times in the early 90's so I decided to pull down that black bag filled with memories and take a peek back into a bleak, yet rewarding,past.

In a quest for clarity in her life, author Nancy Lee Hamilton realized that she had allowed herself to become vulnerable to life circumstances that come along to kick you in the knee. She had arrived at a place she said she would never go. Unprepared, she found herself in a conflicting situation-one that threatened to rip her to pieces. InPieces of My Life, Nancy Lee Hamilton explores the past she has lived through, both good and bad, and tries to piece the memories, philosophies, and dreams together-verbalizing humanity's common questions: Have I done something wrong to cause God to turn his face from me? Is there some great lesson in my problems, in this life, that I just am not seeing? What, in this life, is important? Gather up the pieces in your own life and join in the author's refrain, 'I know that if I cannot beat it, I will adapt, but I will not give up the fight.'

Prayers of My Mother is a collection of Scriptures, anecdotes, and inspirational prayers, depicting Carolyn's spiritual journey and faith-filled upbringing. Inspired by her mother - her daily morning "Prayer Share," was the catapult for Prayers of My Mother. Prayers of my Mother is divided into five parts. Part One, "Blessed Trinity," is intended to encourage the reader to become in tune with his or her own calling or spiritual gift(s) through meditation. It stresses patience and dependence on God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit throughout all circumstances. Part Two, "Identifiable Characteristics," focuses on how others see us. Part Three discusses "Life's Relationships," and includes our BFFs (best friends forever and boyfriends forever), and the effects these relationships have on us. Part Four, "Personal Challenges," highlights how we see ourselves and how we cope with those images. Part Five, "Spiritual Challenges," depicts struggles and weaknesses in life as we prepare for the end of times. Many of the daily devotionals shared within the pages of Prayers of my Mother unveiled Carolyn's real-life anecdotes which were deeply hidden in her past and most times forgotten. The more she shared her journey with others, the more anecdotes she recalled. She has shared her trials and tribulations to encourage, console and heal, and hopefully bring peace and reconciliation to many. It is her utmost desire that Prayers of my Mother inspires many to seek a relationship with God, with the understanding that most times it is because of our trials and tribulations that we can hear Him, but we must learn Listening With A Different Ear.

A heartwarming memoir of love and faith from Hannah Brencher—founder of The World Needs More Love Letters—who has dedicated her life to showing total strangers that they are not alone in the world. Fresh out of college, Hannah Brencher moved to New York ready to change the world. Instead, she found a city full of people who knew where they were going and what they were doing and didn’t have time for a girl still trying to figure it all out. Lonely and depressed, she noticed a woman who looked like she felt the same way on the subway. Hannah did something strange—she wrote the woman a letter. She folded it, scribbled “If you find this letter, it’s for you…” on the front and left it behind. When she realized that it made her feel better, she started writing and leaving love notes all over the city—in doctor’s offices, in coat pockets, in library books, in bathroom stalls. Feeling crushed within a culture that only felt like connecting on a screen, she poured her heart out to complete strangers. She found solace in the idea that her words might brighten someone’s day. Hannah’s project took on a life of its own when she made an offer on her blog: She would handwrite a note and mail it to anyone who wanted one. Overnight, her inbox exploded with requests from people all over the world. Nearly 400 handwritten letters later, she started the website, The World Needs More Love Letters, which quickly grew. There is something about receiving a handwritten note that is so powerful in today’s digital era. If You Find This Letter chronicles Hannah’s attempts to bring more love into the world—and shows how she rediscovered her faith through the movement she started.

Compulsive hoarding damages house structures, threatens safety and health, drains bank accounts, and estranges a hoarder from the rest of society. It goes way beyond just saving stuff. It goes deeper than just being a pack-rat. It is a very real disorder, and it affects more than the hoarder. In this brief memoir, Melissa shares her struggles growing up as the daughter of a hoarder, her reality TV experience and the events that followed, and her journey through the therapy she did not realize she needed. "Validate Me! (How my mom's hoarding kind of messed me up.)" opens your eyes to the most important "things" that get destroyed under the piles.

Locked inside a brain-injured head looking out at a challenging world is the premise of this extraordinary autobiography. Over My Head is an inspiring story of how one woman comes to terms with the loss of her identity and the courageous steps (and hilarious missteps) she takes while learning to rebuild her life. The author, a 45-year-old doctor and clinical professor of medicine, describes the aftermath of a brain injury eleven years ago which stripped her of her beloved profession. For years she was deprived of her intellectual companionship and the ability to handle the simplest undertakings like shopping for groceries or sorting the mail. Her progression from confusion, dysfunction, and alienation to a full, happy life is told with restraint, great style, and considerable humor.
