As they dazzle all the men at Queen Victoria´s jubilee ball, Beth and Milly Goodwin seem to be mirror images of one another: beautiful, graceful and rich, they can take their pick of any man in St Helens. Only those who know them best realize that Milly´s dark brown eyes hide a wild, untamed wantonness, while Beth´s silvery-grey ones betray her idealism and kindness. But the only man in the room either of them wants is the one who could destroy both their lives. Hugh, sixteenth Lord Thornley, is a rake who needs to marry an heiress to restore the fortune his father gambled away. Even a lowly daughter of a glass manufacturer will do - provided she is biddable and strong and willing to bear the son he needs. Beth, he decides, will make him the perfect wife. But it is Milly who traps him into a loveless marriage - and sets in motion a chain of events that could destroy everything they hold dear.
I feel like I am a puzzle, scattered in a hundred pieces. No. . .a broken clay vessel with little shards and big shards; some sharp and some smooth. Only the master potter can put me back together and fuse the pieces in the right place. Some pieces are shattered from the inside and some belong on the outside. Only He fully understands me body, soul, and spirit. When He’s done, I can see the cracks from where the breaks were. Yet, I have gained a sense of beauty, purpose, and character from these scars. It was not until I received the revelation of being made in His image that I was able to fully receive the healing that God had for me. What is His Image? He has revealed himself in three parts, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He designed you in His likeness. Come on a journey with me to explore your design and how you are made in the “Image of God”. This book is a quick, easy, and powerful read.

As Ari faces the demise of his parents´ marriage, he also feels himself changing, both emotionally and physically. Here is a much-needed story about accepting the imperfect in oneself and in life.
A yet heartbreakingly honest, endearing memoir of incredible weight loss by a young food blogger who battles body image issues and overcomes food addiction to find self-acceptance. All her life, Andie Mitchell had eaten lustily and mindlessly. Food was her babysitter, her best friend, her confidant, and it provided a refuge from her fractured family. But when she stepped on the scale on her twentieth birthday and it registered a shocking 268 pounds, she knew she had to change the way she thought about food and herself; that her life was at stake. It Was Me All Along takes Andie from working class Boston to the romantic streets of Rome, from morbidly obese to half her size, from seeking comfort in anything that came cream-filled and two-to-a-pack to finding balance in exquisite (but modest) bowls of handmade pasta. This story is about much more than a woman who loves food and abhors her body. It is about someone who made changes when her situation seemed too far gone and how she discovered balance in an off-kilter world. More than anything, though, it is the story of her finding beauty in acceptance and learning to love all parts of herself.
