Perfect for fans of Jojo Moyes, Dorothy Koomson and Liane Moriarty, this is an uplifting and heartfelt novel from the author of The Memory Book, which was featured in the Richard & Judy book club 2014 'I immediately read The Memory Book and it's WONDERFUL ... I'm so happy because she's written other books and its so lovely to find a writer you love who has a backlist' Marian Keyes Willow and Holly are identical twins. They are everything to each other. Holly calls Willow her rock, her soul mate, her other half. And Willow feels the same about Holly. They are alike in every respect except one - Willow is afraid on the inside. And all because of a secret - one that binds the sisters closely together and yet has meant their adult lives have taken two very different paths. Willow often feels there are large parts of her missing, qualities she only knows she's lacking because she sees them in her sister. For a very long time Willow has felt separated from Holly by one terrible moment in time - a moment that meant Willow's life was never the same again. And when the past catches up with her, Willow realises it's finally time for her to face her fears, and - with Holly's help - learn to laugh out loud once more...

Life Lessons from My Five-Year-Old shares the journey Kimber Lynne took to remember what matters most in life. Her “aha” moment came when she realized that her young daughter could save her from herself and show her what really matters in life. Once she realized this, she began to enjoy the extraordinary moments that happen every day instead of trying to anticipate what the future might bring. It is through teaching her daughter—and being taught by her in return—that she has been able to change her view of life’s important moments, value, and fears and learn to live more in the present. Her journey also included recognizing and overcoming some of the negative and destructive behaviors that have formed her own beliefs and making the necessary changes in her life so she would not pass negative traits on to her daughter. The first lesson she learned from her five-year-old was that all of the risks and emotional hurdles can help move you from the off-ramp back onto the main road moving forward. Her journey of becoming a parent to her little girl definitely moved her in the right direction. Life Lessons from My Five-Year-Old is about recognizing the fact that we need to trust ourselves and our instincts because we probably already know the answers. Doing the work to get to know our inner self a little better can certainly help kick-start uncovering our truth and passion.

Imagine waking up one morning at age fifty. You're a noted, published artist whose work hangs all over the world. Then imagine finding yourself standing in front of thirty-five at-risk African American high school students in an inner-city classroom in one of the most difficult high schools in the country. It's your job to teach them, and you've never taught a day in your life. This is the story of an artist who did just that. It is a moving story of a middle-aged white artist who dared to venture into the inner city of Savannah, Georgia, and attempt to teach in one of the first all-black high schools for children of freed slaves in America. Yet Shadow Lessons is not another teacher saves the day book. It is a story of beauty and ugliness, life and death, joy and sorrow, laughter and despair. Shadow Lessons takes us beyond the classroom on a compelling journey of compassion, healing, and transformation.
