Tattoo - Journeys on my Mind, by Tina Marie L. Lamb
Sometimes exploring places and meeting people outside your familiar world can reveal who you are or where you're from-perhaps even more clearly than looking in a mirror. We recommend it! Most likely, you will eventually harden to the retort, "Why are you going there?" After a lifetime of exploring on her own terms, author Tina Marie L. Lamb calls this delightful collection of stories her midlife crisis. And she's determined to pull you along with her.
Embark with Tina Marie from the peacefulness of an overnight in a South Carolina tree house (albeit with spiders and snakes) to being held captive on the Ganges River by a boatman haggling for extra Rupees before he'll navigate her ashore. Or, accompany Tina Marie as she wrestles a hali...

Tomorrow My Sunshine Will Come: Memoirs of Women Who Survived Domestic Violence, by Jennifer Foxworthy
Tomorrow My Sunshine Will Come: Memoirs of Women Who Survived Domestic Violence manifested itself through sharing my story openly with other women. I believed that I was the only crazy person to tolerate such humiliation and embarrassment. This couldn't be further from the truth. The more I shared my story, the more other women came forward and said they could relate. The more stories I heard, the more I felt compelled to share them with other women, who are ashamed and afraid to tell their experience. Jamika’s, Felicia’s, Allison’s, Pam’s, Karen’s and my story are unique to us, they each have a very similar pattern. Through unfortunate circumstances early in life, our self-esteem was impacted. While looking for love and ac...
