When beloved Christian writer and speaker Savannah Trover becomes gravely ill, she has to face the sham that her faith has become. Days before her heart transplant, she vows to change her ways and she renews her relationship with Christ. But when she awakens from the surgery, Savannah discovers that her faith has left her completely. Savannah’s husband, Shaun, is concerned about his wife's odd behavior—and even more concerned about the secret he’s keeping from her. If she doesn't bring down their ministry, then he might, losing his family in the process. A stranger may hold the answer to Savannah's recovery, but is Savannah strong enough to return to her old way of life? Can Shaun right his wrongs before word gets out? And do either one of them remember how to be who they once were—or who they want to be? In this latest relational drama from Alison Strobel, readers will explore the difference between emotional faith and life-giving truth as Savannah wonders if she can ever trust her heart again.

Near to the Wild Heart (Ndp; 1225)

Clarice Lispector

Best price for this book: $ 10.55

Buy

This new translation of Clarice Lispector's sensational first book tells the story of a middle class woman's life from childhood through an unhappy marriage and its dissolution to transcendence.

Near to the Wild Heart, published in Rio de Janeiro in 1943, introduced Brazil to what one writer called “Hurricane Clarice”: a twenty-three-year-old girl who wrote her first book in a tiny rented room and then baptized it with a title taken from Joyce: “He was alone, unheeded, near to the wild heart of life.”

The book was an unprecedented sensation ― the discovery of a genius. Narrative epiphanies and interior monologue frame the life of Joana, from her middle-class childhood through her unhappy marriage and its dissolution to transcendence, when she proclaims: “I shall arise as strong and comely as a young colt.”

If you’ve read John Kotter’s worldwide bestseller Leading Change, this should be the next book on your list. The Heart of Change—now with refreshed packaging—is the engaging and practical follow-up to Leading Change, unveiling a framework to help you implement the change Kotter talks about.

The authors argue that change initiatives fail because teams rely on the wrong information—too much data gathering and analysis instead of a creative approach that actually motivates useful action. In the book, Kotter and coauthor Dan Cohen illustrate how transformational change actually happens, using stories from more than 100 organizations to show what works. They introduce the see-feel-change dynamic to propel people into the action that’s needed for true transformation.

Refreshingly frank and continuously useful, The Heart of Change will help your organization change successfully.

The amazing life of Britain’s ‘oldest’ teen
Hayley Okines is just like any other teenager: she loves clothes, shopping, and boy bands, and hates getting up in the morning. But she has progeria, which means her body ages eight times faster than normal, giving her the body of a 126-year-old. Her positive attitude and infectious smile have charmed millions of people through her Extraordinary People TV documentaries.

Now in Young at Heart, Hayley continues her unusual life story, which began with Old Before My Time. About to turn 17, she reflects on the pains and perks of growing up with progeria – from the heartbreak of being told she will never walk again to the delight of passing her exams and starting college. Hayley considers mood swings, marriage, music, and what it’s like to be ‘famous’.
