✏Surprised by Motherhood Book Summary : A lawyer with a well-stamped passport and a passion for human rights, Lisa-Jo Baker never wanted to be a mom. And then she had kids. Having lost her own mother to cancer as a teenager, Lisa-Jo felt lost on her journey to womanhood and wholly unprepared to raise children. Surprised by Motherhood is Lisa-Jo’s story of becoming and being a mom, and in the process, discovering that all the “what to expect” and “how to” books in the world can never truly prepare you for the sheer exhilaration, joy, and terrifying love that accompanies motherhood. Set partly in South Africa and partly in the US (with a slight detour to Ukraine along the way), Surprised by Motherhood is a poignant memoir of one woman’s dawning realization that being a mom isn’t about being perfect—it’s about being present.

✏The Letting Go Book Summary : The Letting Go presents a journey through one courageous woman’s life as she deals with childhood trauma, neglect, and child abuse. Eventually, author Sasha Frost learned to overcome her demons and deal with her rage and her suicidal and homicidal thoughts. As flashbacks of her childhood pushed her to the brink, she realized that she had to make peace with the trauma of the past to have a productive future. As she grew into a young woman dealing with the demands of being a single parent, homelessness, and her sexual identity, she learned that the best way to conquer and alleviate her fears—to be able to forgive—is by letting go. Frost’s life seemed as normal as anyone’s; she lived with her mother, father, and siblings. She had good times with her family, but that life also sheltered such destructive forces as childhood trauma and neglect. Child abuse takes many forms; it may be emotional, physical, or sexual abuse. Even so, the outcome is the same—the child misses the unconditional love that our lives depend upon. Her spirituality helped her to make it through the toughest of times, but she was also able to make peace with those who abused her, thus enabling her to move ahead with her life.

✏Jo s Journey Lords of Kassis Book 3 Book Summary : New York Times and USA TODAY Bestselling author of Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy, and Paranormal Romance brings another action, adventure, and suspense-filled story to transport readers out of this world. Jo Strauss was committed to two things in her life – her family and her life as an acrobat/high-wire performer. She takes both very seriously. Her life was orderly, in control, and she was finally settling down in one place so she could spend more time with her parents instead of moving all over the world every few weeks. To celebrate her and younger sister Star’s one year anniversary away from the circus they had grown up with, she and Star were meeting River Knight, their childhood friend and sister of the heart, for a vacation in the mountains in North Carolina. Everything goes as planned until she and her sisters are kidnapped. Now, she finds herself transported to another world. Aliens, warships, battles and a certain male were not in the carefully detailed plans she had mapped out for her life. Manota Ja Kel Coradon is the second son of the ruling House of Kassis. He is known as the dark brother, a reputation that he lives up to. He has fought hard to protect his family and the people of Kassis, at times sacrificing parts of his soul to do so. His knowledge, skills and development of weaponry are legendary. His skill as a warrior bring shivers of fear to his opponents who know he never gives mercy to any who stand in his way. Manota is in total control of his world until one slender, feisty alien female crashes through the shields he has placed around his heart. She is fearless, determined and stubborn. She absolutely refuses to cower before him, no matter how much he growls! He is determined to protect her and claim her as his own but there is one little problem – she will not agree to accept his claim unless he returns for her parents. Now, he has even bigger problems – that come in all different shapes, sizes and species! The return trip is fraught with enough dangers, but Jo and Star’s parents aren’t the only ones coming back to Kassis - so is the circus family who had gathered to help look for their missing family members. Traitors, pirates and Mimes are just the tip of the iceberg of trouble gliding through warp speed to his home world. Manota is about to learn that the prophecy that was foretold centuries before is true. His mate is just as much of a warrior as he is and she comes with backup when an old enemy attacks!
