Valerie Bertinelli shares an inspiring blueprint that offers women in midlife support and hope. She shares personal stories that many women will relate to from her past decade: hitting her fifties, taking care of her dying mother, the evolving relationship with her husband, a career change, her relationship with food, and the battle to believe in herself as she is.
Atlas of the Heart
In Atlas of the Heart, Brown takes us on a journey through 85 of the emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human. As she maps the necessary skills and lays out an actionable framework for meaningful connection, she gives us the language and tools to access a universe of new choices and second chances – a universe where we can share and steward the stories of our bravest and most heartbreaking moments with one another in a way that builds connection.
Taste: My Life Through Food
Taste is a reflection on the intersection of food and life, filled with anecdotes about growing up in Westchester, New York; preparing for and shooting the foodie films Big Night and Julia & Julia; falling in love over dinner, and teaming up with his wife to create meals for multitudes of children. Each morsel of this gastronomic journey through good times and bad, five-star meals and burned dishes, is as heartfelt and delicious as the last. With the authority of a wise uncle – and a few interstitial recipes, because he just can’t help himself – he walks us through his life: school lunches his classmates envied, waiting tables before his first big break, eating on film sets, the devastating loss of his first wife, and meeting his wife, Felicity.
Killing the Killers
In the eleventh book in the Killing series, O’Reilly and Dugard reveal the startling, dramatic story of the global war against terrorists. In Killing The Killers, readers take a deep look inside the global war on terror. Killing The Killers narrates America’s intense global war against extremists who planned and executed not only the 9/11 attacks, but hundreds of others in America and around the world, and who eventually destroyed entire nations in their relentless quest for power. With fresh detail and deeply-sourced information, O’Reilly and Dugard create an unstoppable account of the most important war of our era.
