Grieving the Loss of a Love

Grieving the Loss of a Love

Eleora Han PhD

For those who have experienced the loss of a love, this thoughtful book offers courage and comfort. Some of us face the death of a loved one while others face the end of a relationship or a painful divorce, but everyone who finds themselves in the midst of loss–whether willingly or forced by circumstances–grieves and could use solace, wisdom, and connection.

Drawing from her personal and professional experiences with grief and loss, psychologist Eleora Han offers a candid and moving reflection of grief and explains how embracing grief may help us stay rooted in love, and how accepting our lack of control can help us find peace. She offers reassurance that, however, painful the loss, we can make it through.

Each chapter guides you in a quest to experience loss as a positive, life-changing journey, one that can help you to:
cultivate connection,

love more deeply and wholeheartedly,

explore the beauty of forgiveness and spirituality,

and find hopeful meaning and purpose toward the future.

Weaving in recent research on grief with relatable personal stories and practical insights, this book offers essential wisdom and truth for those intent on making their way forward through grief and loss and, in the process, awaken to deeper love, gratitude, and wholeness.

Clark Gable: A Biography

Clark Gable: A Biography

Warren G. Harris

Clark Gable arrived in Hollywood after a rough-and-tumble youth, and his breezy, big-boned, everyman persona quickly made him the town’s king. He was a gambler among gamblers, a heavy drinker in the days when everyone drank seemingly all the time, and a lover to legions of the most attractive women in the most glamorous business in the world, including the great love of his life, Carole Lombard.

In this well-researched and revealing biography, Warren G. Harris gives an exceptionally acute portrait of one of the most memorable actors in the history of motion pictures—whose intimates included such legends as Marilyn Monroe, Joan Crawford, Loretta Young, David O. Selznick, Jean Harlow, Judy Garland, Lana Turner, Spencer Tracy, and Grace Kelly—as well as a vivid sense of the glamour and excess of mid-century Hollywood.

Badditives!: The 13 Most Harmful Food Additives in Your Diet—and How to Avoid Them

Linda Bonvie

These days, the food on our tables is a far cry from what our grandparents ate. While it may look and taste the same and is often marketed under familiar brand names, our food has slowly but surely morphed into something entirely different—and a lot less benign.

Ever wondered how bread manages to stay “fresh” on store shelves for so long? How do brightly colored cereals get those vibrant hues? Are artificial sweeteners really a healthy substitute for sugar? Whether you’re an experienced label reader or just starting to question what’s on your plate, Badditives! helps you cut through the fog of information overload. With current, updated research, Badditives! identifies thirteen of the most worrisome ingredients you might be eating and drinking every day. Learn about:

• The commonly used flavor enhancers you should avoid at all costs
• Two synthetic sweeteners that are wreaking havoc on the health of Americans in ways ordinary sugar does not
• Artificial colors and preservatives in your child’s diet and how they have been linked directly to ADHD
• The “hidden” ingredients in most processed foods that were declared safe to consume without ever really being researched
• The hazardous industrial waste product that’s in your food and beverages
• The toxic metal found in processed foods that has been linked to Alzheimer’s
• The invisible meat and seafood ingredient that’s more dangerous than “Pink Slime”

In a toxic world, educate yourself, change what you and your family eat, and avoid these poisons that are the known causes of our most prevalent health problems.

Love in the Driest Season: A Family Memoir

Love in the Driest Season: A Family Memoir

Neely Tucker

Foreign correspondent Neely Tucker and his wife, Vita, arrived in Zimbabwe in 1997. After witnessing firsthand the devastating consequences of AIDS on the population, especially the children, the couple started volunteering at an orphanage that was desperately underfunded and short-staffed. One afternoon, a critically ill infant was brought to the orphanage from a village outside the city. She’d been left to die in a field on the day she was born, abandoned in the tall brown grass that covers the highlands of Zimbabwe in the dry season. After a near-death hospital stay, and under strict doctor’s orders, the ailing child was entrusted to the care of Tucker and Vita. Within weeks Chipo, the girl-child whose name means gift, would come to mean everything to them.

Still an active correspondent, Tucker crisscrossed the continent, filing stories about the uprisings in the Congo, the civil war in Sierra Leone, and the postgenocidal conflict in Rwanda. He witnessed heartbreaking scenes of devastation and violence, steeling him further to take a personal role in helping anywhere he could. At home in Harare, Vita was nursing Chipo back to health. Soon she and Tucker decided to alter their lives forever—they would adopt Chipo. That decision challenged an unspoken social norm—that foreigners should never adopt Zimbabwean children.

Deception on Sable Hill

Shelley Gray

It’s mid-September 1893 and Eloisa Carstairs is the reigning debutant of Gilded Age Chicago society. To outsiders she appears to have it all. But Eloisa is living with a dark secret. Several months ago, she endured a horrible assault at the hands of Douglass Sloane, heir to one of Chicago’s wealthiest families. Fearing the loss of her reputation, Eloisa confided in only one friend. That is, until she meets Detective Sean Ryan at a high-society ball.

Sean is on the fringes of the Chicago elite. Born into a poor Irish family, becoming a policeman was his best chance to ensure security. Despite social boundaries, he is enamored with Eloisa Carstairs. Sean will do anything to keep her safe—even if he can never earn her affections.

Eloisa longs to feel normal again, but a killer is on the loose. In the last month, three debutants have been accosted by an assailant wielding a knife, and Eloisa fears for her safety at every event she attends. As the danger in the city increases, and as the romance between Eloisa and Sean blossoms, they both realize they want to be seen as more than how the world views them. But will they catch the killer before all their hopes come crashing down?
