Life on the Refrigerator Door is a poignant and deeply moving first novel about the bonds of love and frustration that tie mothers and daughters together. Told entirely in a series of notes left on the kitchen fridge—some casual, some intimate, some funny, some angry—it is the story of nine months in the life of 15-year-old Claire and her single mother. Preoccupied with their busy separate lives, rarely in the same room at the same time, they talk to each other in a series of short snippets that reflect the daily drama of school, boyfriends, work and chores that make up their days. Yet the mundane soon becomes extraordinary when a crisis overtakes their lives—a momentous change that will redefine their relationship and unfold in their exchanges on the refrigerator door. Short, powerful and unforgettable, Kuipers’ novel looks deep into the complex relationship between mothers and daughters, and the distances that can open up between people who live together but exist in their own worlds. Unfolding in a wonderfully simple and intimate narrative, Life on the Refrigerator Door will appeal to readers across the generations, delivering universal lessons about love.

Winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize “A triumph of storytelling as well as a triumph of spirit.”—Alex Kotlowitz, award-winning author of There Are No Children Here As a child in 1950s segregated Virginia, Gregory Howard Williams grew up believing he was white. But when the family business failed and his parents’ marriage fell apart, Williams discovered that his dark-skinned father, who had been passing as Italian-American, was half black. The family split up, and Greg, his younger brother, and their father moved to Muncie, Indiana, where the young boys learned the truth about their heritage. Overnight, Greg Williams became black. In this extraordinary and powerful memoir, Williams recounts his remarkable journey along the color line and illuminates the contrasts between the black and white worlds: one of privilege, opportunity and comfort, the other of deprivation, repression, and struggle. He tells of the hostility and prejudice he encountered all too often, from both blacks and whites, and the surprising moments of encouragement and acceptance he found from each. Life on the Color Line is a uniquely important book. It is a wonderfully inspiring testament of purpose, perseverance, and human triumph. “Heartbreaking and uplifting… a searing book about race and prejudice in America… brims with insights that only someone who has lived on both sides of the racial divide could gain.”—Cleveland Plain Dealer From the Trade Paperback edition.

More than 50 years ago scientists made a remarkable discovery, proclaiming, "We have found the secret of life ... and it's so pretty!" The secret was the discovery that life is helixical, two strands wound around a single axis—what most of us know today as the model for DNA. Over the course of his ministry, author Leonard Sweet has discovered that this divine design also informs God's blueprint for the church. In this seminal work, he shares the woven strands that form the church: missional, relational, and incarnational. Sweet declares that this secret is not just pretty, but beautiful. In fact, So Beautiful! Using the poignant life of John Newton as a touchstone, Sweet calls for the re-union of these three essential, complementary strands of the Christian life. Far from a novel idea, Sweet shows how this structure is God's original intent, and shares the simply beautiful design for His church.

One shocking day, Uri, a young, fit man, is diagnosed with a severe form of leukemia. In that instant, his life as he has always known it is turned upside down. The pain, hardship and fear take control of his very being. Ofra, his girlfriend, joins him in the battle to save his life, which is now devoted to medical treatments and raising money to find a suitable bone marrow donor. At the hospital, Uri slowly realizes that the department manager is an insane doctor who wants him to sacrifice his body to science. In a state of remission, Uri flees to New York to undergo bone marrow extraction for future transplants if a donor is not found. However, a donor is found, yet the mad doctor needs the precious bone marrow to save the life of a person he deems more worthy than Uri, a patient with 'blue blood'. Miri, a friend of the couple, whose relationship with the mad doctor is kept secret, travels to New York - perhaps at the doctor's request - and dies there in suspicious circumstances. A few days before the transplant, Uri discovers that the bone marrow he traveled to New York to obtain has been sabotaged and is now useless. Who sabotaged the bone marrow? Was Miri murdered or was her death an accident? Will the mad doctor succeed in his plot? And most important of all - can Uri be saved? Author Haim Greenfeld was raised in a religious educational environment, graduated from a Yeshivah high school, and served in the Nahal Paratroopers Brigade, experiences which have left a clear impression on the story. The author previously worked as a journalist for a daily newspaper, and for the last 30 years has been employed at a large banking institution. This is his first book.
