The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance---What Women Should Know

The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance—What Women Should Know

Katty Kay, Claire Shipman

Great book that discusses the science of confidence and how confidence impacts success.

Nick B.

Following the success of Lean In and Why Women Should Rule the World, the authors of the bestselling Womenomics provide an informative and practical guide to understanding the importance of confidence—and learning how to achieve it—for women of all ages and at all stages of their career.

Working women today are better educated and more well qualified than ever before. Yet men still predominate in the corporate world. In The Confidence Code, Claire Shipman and Katty Kay argue that the key reason is confidence.

Combining cutting-edge research in genetics, gender, behavior, and cognition—with examples from their own lives and those of other successful women in politics, media, and business—Kay and Shipman go beyond admonishing women to “lean in.”Instead, they offer the inspiration and practical advice women need to close the gap and achieve the careers they want and deserve.

Forge (The Seeds of America Trilogy)

Forge (The Seeds of America Trilogy)

Laurie Halse Anderson

This book was fast paced and easy to read. I enjoyed the characters. You couldn’t help but want the best for them. I also read the first book, Chains.

Judy Cardona

In this compelling sequel to Chains, a National Book Award Finalist and winner of the Scott O’Dell Award for Historical Fiction, acclaimed author Laurie Halse Anderson shifts perspective from Isabel to Curzon and brings to the page the tale of what it takes for runaway slaves to forge their own paths in a world of obstacles—and in the midst of the American Revolution. The Patriot Army was shaped and strengthened by the desperate circumstances of the Valley Forge winter. This is where Curzon the boy becomes Curzon the young man. In addition to the hardships of soldiering, he lives with the fear of discovery, for he is an escaped slave passing for free. And then there is Isabel, who is also at Valley Forge—against her will. She and Curzon have to sort out the tangled threads of their friendship while figuring out what stands between the two of them and true freedom.

Chains (The Seeds of America Trilogy)

Laurie Halse Anderson

I love all the books by this author. Her stories are so well researched and explain things in such a way that young readers can empathize and understand the plight of the characters while learning about history and culture. As a teacher, I would recommend her books every time – for both struggling and advanced readers. I get lost in the story myself!

If an entire nation could seek its freedom, why not a girl?

As the Revolutionary War begins, thirteen-year-old Isabel wages her own fight…for freedom. Promised freedom upon the death of their owner, she and her sister, Ruth, in a cruel twist of fate become the property of a malicious New York City couple, the Locktons, who have no sympathy for the American Revolution and even less for Ruth and Isabel. When Isabel meets Curzon, a slave with ties to the Patriots, he encourages her to spy on her owners, who know details of British plans for invasion. She is reluctant at first, but when the unthinkable happens to Ruth, Isabel realizes her loyalty is available to the bidder who can provide her with freedom.

From acclaimed author Laurie Halse Anderson comes this compelling, impeccably researched novel that shows the lengths we can go to cast off our chains, both physical and spiritual.

Night Before Dawn (Grete's Story)

Night Before Dawn (Grete’s Story)

Ilse Shea

This book was well written and very factual. Showing the harshness of the Nazi movement in Germany, then the nightmare of the Russians moving into East Berlin to establish Communism. Greta’s Story gives the reader a sense of her need to do all she could to survive and to protect her children. One could feel the intensity of traveling in secret between the two Berlins. Not easy to put this book down. Twists and turns kept one wanting to get to the end.

Kimberley Berry

This book attempts to put a human face on the horrors of war. It is about my mother, Grete, one of millions of women just like her, who found herself in the midst of a destroyed country, with most able-bodied men gone. What was going on inside Germany after the war was over and the Russians marched in and spread their reign of terror?
How did these women and their children survive? Who has ever written about that?
This book will reveal a subject no one knows anything about, except those who lived it.

Harry Kraus

I loved it! I found it very hard to put down. Even though it uses a lot of medical terminology, it proceeds to explain it in a way that is understanding.

Chris

She Could Save Millions, or Save Herself

She just needs a little longer. She’s really close. Dr. Rebecca Jackson, a medical researcher, stands on the verge of a breakthrough that will transform medicine.

More than her research is at stake. And more threatens it than this latest revelation. Something she’s tried hard to cover up. There is a high cost to some things in medicine and it’s not always the patient who pays. Can Rebecca find the faith and wisdom she needs to make the right call? The clock is ticking and the pressure is on.

mtnmom

Raised among the Amish of Indiana, 18-year-old Marianna Sommer plans to get baptized into the church, marry Aaron Zook, and set up life in the only community she has ever known. But when her older brother chooses the world’s path following his rumschpringe, and a younger sibling begins showing interest in Englisch ways, Marianna’s parents move the family to Montana.

Although she is also in her rumschpringe years and not obligated to move, Marianna makes the journey to dutifully help her mother who is expecting another child. Surprisingly, from strangers on the cross-country train ride to the less rigid stance of the new Montana community, many Englisch influences awaken within Marianna—and even her father—the desire to pursue a deeper kind of joy and love for God.

After an accident, Marianna tells her friend Ben a defining story about the Sommer family, and his response further illumines the active relationship God seeks with His followers. In due time, she learns the move from Indiana was not about losing anything, but finding out who God really is. Despite all the shake-ups, Marianna feels a sweet peace, like still waters, in her soul.

In This Intimate Historical Epic, the Heart-wrenching Dilemmas of The Meeting Place Come to Rest on…The Sacred Shore

Oceans and circumstances have forced families apart. For the banished French Acadians drifting in exile, the shore means safety–though it is a safety at a terrible price. For the lonely British nobleman, the shore holds a single chance to secure his legacy. For Andrew and Catherine Harrow, the shore marks a tragic separation.

An extraordinary set of journeys awaits them all, each as intricate and perilous as the coastline itself. New beginnings are connected to all that has come before. And the past penetrates into what is yet to come. The common thread is a yearning to discover their identities in their families, in their communities, and in their God.

She Yearned to Find a Home for Her Heart

The tragic Acadian saga recounted in The Meeting Place, when the British drove the French from Nova Scotia, has followed two families over a score of years to the birth pangs of a new nation. The Song of Acadia has been one full of pathos but also of hope. Faith in God and family eventually have brought the Henri Robichauds to Louisiana, and finally, to a life of tranquility among the bayous. Back in Nova Scotia, the Andrew Harrows have been beacons of light among the British and the French communities.

But the American Revolution has created turmoil on two continents, dividing nations, people, and, sometimes, even families. Anne in England and Nicole in the New World have little hope of seeing one another again in the foreseeable future.

Then a letter finds its way to both sisters with news that send them on a frantic and harrowing journey to…The Beloved Land.
