Half the World Away
Divorced and keeping a heart-breaking secret, Abbie Potter is sleep-walking through her life as a publicist at a London football club. She seems to spend more time covering their scandals than celebrating their wins, and has had enough. Though she’s already prepared for a fresh start, some shocking news pushes her to take an opportunity even further from home - in Salt Lake City.
The first morning of her new life, Abbie bumps into Kyle Miller. He’s persistent, and Abbie’s more than intrigued by him. Everything else seems to fit into place too: she has a fulfilling job, is on a journey of self-rediscovery, and has revived her love of music thanks to a new-found friendship.
She can’t risk losing what she’s built for herself, but how can she stop it from slipping through her fingers without shattering the façade she hides behind?
The S.E.L.F.I.S.H model created by Carolyn Hobdey guides the reader through how to give up feeling guilty about taking some time out, instead of placing ourselves at the top of our 'to do' list and acknowledging the benefits to us and those around us of making ourselves 'better'. Its purpose—and that of the whole Redefining SELFISH concept—is to encourage self-kindness, develop confidence and shift mindsets from harmful to helpful.
This true story follows the remarkable and unlikely friendship that develops between two strangers - a London housewife bringing up four children and a British prisoner incarcerated in Thailand.
As they begin to exchange letters, each tells a personal story of being sentenced - Vicky in a desperate and loveless marriage; Andy within the walls of one of the world's most notorious prisons.
What unfolds is a moving tale about entrapment and freedom, love and friendship, and the human capacity to withstand and overcome immense pain and suffering in the face of adversity.
Designed as a resource for enriching daily life, this bestselling illustrated holistic planner will guide you on a journey of awareness and fulfilment as you go about your everyday activities. It’s all too easy to become overwhelmed with multiple thoughts each day as our to-do lists grow, so this diary insightfully offers up one life-enhancing theme a month for you to focus on.
This year’s themes range from Authenticity, Bravery and Mindfulness to Compassion, Simplicity and Resilience. Each week-to-view spread features an inspiring quote that encourages reflection on the theme and an exercise to further your overall well-being.
If you are concerned about the planet, climate emergency and sustainability, this interactive journal will help you discover a way of living more harmoniously with the planet, but without the necessity for a garden or to make major changes to your life. Both a practical companion to the year and a stunning piece of nature writing, it will show how even a busy modern life in a city can be infused with meaningful connections with the world we live in.
The Astrology Diary 2022 is uniquely illustrated around the zodiac theme. It brings lunar wisdom into your day to day activity, with life-coaching tools and tips each week.
Divided by zodiac sign, it shows how the sun’s movement through the zodiac affects everyone’s energies, whatever star sign. It displays the effect of planetary conjunctions and how Mercury entering retrograde affects our decision making and fortunes.
The Astrology Diary illustrates the characteristics of each zodiac sign and how that impacts on the events of your life. Pisces is the dreamer, so when the sun enters Pisces, it’s time to implement steps to move closer to your dream life. Taurus is the time to plan financial abundance. Aries is a concentrated energy to begin something, whether that’s a vigorous new exercise programme or a new project.
