Beyond a mere travelogue, Steve Hunter’s debut novel unfolds along two very different, arduous, and ancient pilgrimage trails. Packed with warmth and humour, and based on Hunter’s 3,000-kilometer walk across Europe. This journey bursts with bare-bones honesty and heartache. From the Camino De Santiago to a pilgrimage from Rome to Istanbul, Hunter tells it the Way that only a hardened traveler who sacrificed it all for the road could. The protagonist Freddi’s life lacked any sign of commitment. Until those first steps, he had nothing to show for himself. He had abandoned his career, lost the love of his life, and then wandered exploited tourist trails to satisfy his ego. Relish In the Tread captures the daily trepidations and the highs of a modern day pilgrim. Through madness and perseverance, he vows to walk and keep walking until he reaches the eighth wonder of the world, Hagia Sophia, where Europe and Asia collide. Relish challenges books written about pilgrimage and the Camino De Santiago. It is a compelling, and forthright story of one man’s odyssey toward discovery and transformation. And brings a literary force back to travel writing.

A compelling novel inspired by a true story: an ordinary family’s struggle for survival through an extraordinary period of Korean and world history. Mun-gyeong, 1935. Choi MiJa is getting ready for her first day at the Elementary Good Citizen School in Japanese occupied Korea. The Choi family are wealthy landowners and have been for nineteen generations, but all that is about to change. Their privileged lifestyle will soon disappear forever, and burgeoning love is put on hold as the family have to endure hardship and loss of the Japanese Occupation, the Second World War, and the Korean War. When peace finally arrives, there is great hope for the future, and Korea has a chance to build a just and fair society. Will it succeed? MiJa is a timeless story that sweeps the reader from the gated town of Mun-gyeong, a mountain pass so high that even the birds cannot fly through it, to the besieged war-torn city of Busan where they have to live in the shantytown of Ami-dong built from reused gravestones. Eventually MiJa finds herself in the remote fishing port of Mukho, on the border with North Korea, where she joins the Hae-nyeo: a matriarchal group of fisherwomen. MiJa is a tale of un-blossomed love, female sacrifice, and how a family’s hopes and dreams are crushed by the weight of historical events that still resonate in modern-day Korea.

Considered One of The Most Powerful TEDx Speakers, Authors, and Social Activists, Sadika Kebbi Presents Shocking True Stories of Women and Young Girls Who Suffered Narcissistic Abuse, Violence, Rape, and Poverty in Cultures That Forced Them to Be Silent. In collaboration with the United Nations, UNICEF, and other NGOs, Sadika Kebbi visited struggling neighborhoods to help the most in need. After gaining people’s trust, the most heartbreaking real stories began to unfold. She’d meet: the wife who was made to believe she’s a woman of no importance, the angry child who was abused, the daughter for sale, the silent wife in narcissistic abuse recovery, women and other monsters, girls with no family support, the mother who had to rent her body, and many other stories of women race and class. Kebbi would return home and cry her heart out until she ended in depression and anxiety that were affecting her family and other relationships. It then became her mission to share the woman code book, which is different from feminist books for women where love and other words are the light at the end of the tunnel. Among other woman books, short stories books, true story books, and heartbreaking books, those short stories about survival in a hidden world will show the secret lives of men and women you never imagined existed. Kebbi believes that writing these short stories collections gives voice to the voiceless, in the hope that sharing common human pain and suffering brings people together with compassion, understanding, and belonging. Such human ordeals are universal among all people and telling the hardest stories, Kebbi believes, helps heal human suffering.

Explore Evidence of an Advanced Civilization on the Antarctic Continent in the Paleocene Epoch, and other Mysterious Cultures of Prehistory. For decades the archaeological community labored under the theory that human civilization began after the last Ice Age. The theory conjectured that, prior to that time, humans were no more than primitive hunter-gatherers incapable of communal organization or sophisticated abilities, and it was only after the last glacial period—following the melting of the 10,000 foot thick ice sheets that covered much of the northern portion of the world’s continents—that our human ancestors began to develop agriculture and complex economic and social structures, sometime around 4000 B.C. Contemporary discoveries have dramatically undermined those theories. Modern research has unearthed buried civilizations and discovered hidden cities one after another—archaeology now reconstructs an unsuspected antiquity of man and paints a canvas of stunningly mysterious dimensions. Previous academic accounts of the origins of civilization have fallen forfeit to evidence from archaeological sites worldwide, including Thebes (c. 37,900 BC), Edfu (c. 18,000 BC), Turkey (c. 12,000 BC), Bolivia (c. 15,000 BC), Indonesia (c. 22,000 BC), and, most intriguingly, in Antarctica.

I feel like I’m dreaming,” said Damian, looking above him at all the colorful bubbles. “Are all these dreams?” asked Damian, looking above him full of awe. “How do you capture them?” he asked, following an emerald green bubble with his eye as it floated across the room.

Healing of a Psychotherapist: A Journey of Rebellion, Reflection, and Redemption is a gripping story of one man’s coming to understand and eventually overcome the paralyzing effect that a traumatic childhood and unacknowledged grief had on his capacity to experience fulfillment despite his worldly successes. In this memoir, Charles McCormack, a multi-award-winning psychotherapist, doesn’t offer himself up as a dry, clinical case but tells the emotionally raw story of his life and the people in it. Along the way, he conveys the layers of uncertainty, shame, low self-esteem, egotism, mistakes made and then made again, the lessons learned and then forgotten, the failures and successes, the joys and heartbreaks, and the wisdom and folly that constricted him like the successive shells of a Russian Nesting Doll. On her death bed, his mother sensing the dark ampule of his abandonment planted all those years ago, refused to leave him again. On two separate occasions, she rose from her death bed, teetered over to him, placed her palms on the table for support, leaned forward, fiercely looked him in the eye, and emphatically demanded in her French-accented English, “Charlie, have a good life! Charlie, have a good life!” She wasn’t asking; she was telling. She then waited, unmoving, until, looking directly back into her eyes and choking back tears, he responded, “I will, Mom. I will.” Like a radioactive pellet inserted in the middle of a cancerous tumor, the directive to “Have a good life” became McCormack’s goal. Healing of a Psychotherapist is the story of his journey.

Lady Guinevere Kerr is sure she’s firmly on the shelf. Rescued from a hardscrabble existence, the fierce twenty-three-year-old is readying herself to guide and defend her younger sisters as they venture out into London’s Marriage Mart. When Hugh, the handsome-but-obnoxiously-rude bachelor next door accuses them of having loose morals, he’s lucky she doesn’t cram something worse than gingerbread in his mouth. Lord Hugh Lyon is used to dodging debutantes with their eye on the altar. And after avoiding attachments for the last decade due to his fiancée Alicia’s death, he’s shocked to feel his passions spark at the Scottish lass’s curvy figure and bold actions. But when he tries to make amends, he discovers the stubborn beauty isn’t so easily swayed by his tentative overtures. Eventually warming to the man she’s convinced is courting her youngest sibling, Gwen’s history has her taking a frightened step back when she realizes SHE is the object of his affection. And while Hugh works patiently to find a solution to soothe his beloved’s anxieties about marriage, his own past comes rushing in with a vengeance. Will a terror of scandal stop them from reaching their happily ever after? The Brooding Bachelor is the suspenseful first book in The Kerrs of Kelso Regency romance series.
