The bestselling author of The Kind Diet offers practical solutions for a healthier, more vibrant approach to new motherhood When did making babies get to be so hard? Infertility is on the rise globally, affecting as many as one in six couples. But instead of looking at diet and lifestyle as key factors, doctors are racing to pump their patients full of expensive and invasive fertility treatments. Once pregnant, women just accept that carrying a baby will be the gassy, swollen, irritable, sleepless nightmare that has become the new normal. Once their babies are born, they assume it will be just as challenging—from breastfeeding woes to screaming fits and constant trips to the doctor. It doesn’t have to be that way. In The Kind Mama, Alicia Silverstone shows that if we kick nasty foods that fight our bodies and replace them with nutrient-rocking “clean” foods that heal and nourish, we can create a more positive baby-making experience, from conception through the third trimester (and beyond). By encouraging basic diet and lifestyle modifications and drawing on wisdom from medical experts, friends, and her own experience, Silverstone has created a one-stop guide that empowers women to take charge of their fertility and pregnancy, and helps them to embark on a healthier, more vibrant path to parenthood.

Whether you want to lose weight, get healthy, or help save the world, transitioning to a vegan diet is easy with advice, tips, and recipes from actress Alicia Silverstone. In The Kind Diet, actress, activist, and committed conservationist Alicia Silverstone shares the insights that encouraged her to swear off meat and dairy forever, and outlines the spectacular benefits of adopting a plant-based diet, from effortless weight loss to clear skin, off-the-chart energy, and smooth digestion. She explains how meat, fish, milk, and cheese—the very foods we've been taught to regard as the cornerstone of good nutrition—are actually the culprits behind escalating rates of disease and the cause of dire, potentially permanent damage to our ecology. Yet going meat- and dairy-free doesn't mean suffering deprivation; to the contrary, The Kind Diet introduces irresistibly delicious food that satisfies on every level—it even includes amazing desserts to keep the most stubborn sweet tooth happy. Alicia also addresses the nutritional concerns faced by many who are new to a plant-based diet, and shows how to cover every nutritional base, from protein to calcium and beyond. Whether your goal is to drop a few pounds, boost your energy and metabolism, or simply save the world, Alicia provides the encouragement, the information, and the tools you need to make the transition to a plant-based diet deliciously empowering.

While sitting in the hallway outside of his first grade classroom, young Bobby Dorsey overhears his teacher reporting his misbehavior to his mother, Margaret, through a vent in the classroom door. He is shocked when he hears his mother tearfully confess that he is the unexpected result of a high school affair, that she never intended to have a child, and that he would have been aborted if not for the intervention of his grandmother, a devout Southern Baptist, and her pastor. The unexpected and unwanted birth of Bobby causes Margaret to feel she was robbed of the fun of her high school years. Driven to complete her lost adolescence, she exposes Bobby to a string of boyfriends, with whom she often has a sexual relationship. Bobby becomes aware of those relationships at far too early an age for him to understand what is going on. Some of Margarets boyfriends are cruel and abusive to Bobby. This coupled with his mothers indifference, eventually leads him to feel an outsider in his own home in the small East Texas town of Purvis. His mothers preoccupation with her own life and lack of concern for him causes Bobby to become increasingly curious about his absent father, who he learns is managing a motel in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The more Bobby learns about his father, the more his fantasies about him grow. He wonders if he might find the love and acceptance with him that he had not found living with his mother. Therefore at ten years of age, Bobby concludes that Purvis is not a good place for him to be, and that he needs to go live with his father in Chattanooga. So begins a modern Huckleberry Finn tale filled with adventure and intrigue as Bobby embarks on an almost nine hundred mile journey from Texas to Tennessee. He encounters fascinating people, and has several narrow escapes from busybodies who want to take over his problem and solve it for him. Enough people had judged and condemned him. Enough had screwed up his life in Purvis. He wants nothing further to do with the likes of them. His life is now in his own hands until he reaches his father whom he is convinced will be the answer to all his problems. Does Bobby reach his father without experiencing more abuse? Would his father be able to provide him the love and support he never found in Purvis? Does Bobby take the damage from his childhood abuse along with him? This novel deals both dramatically and spiritually with the following current hot topics: The abortion issue, childhood physical, emotional and sexual abuse and prejudice including homophobia. It illustrates how one generations abused become the next generations abusers. It drives home the point that a persons RIGHT TO LIFE is far more than a mere right to birth, showing that love, compassion, understanding and forgiveness are also basic human rights that deserve the same impassioned advocacy seen among current anti-abortionists.

A “vivid, unsentimental, powerful” portrait of a Southern marriage by the New York Times–bestselling author of Ellen Foster (Publishers Weekly). “She hasn’t been dead four months and I’ve already eaten to the bottom of the deep freeze. I even ate the green peas. Used to I wouldn’t turn my hand over for green peas . . .” Ruby Stokes has died too young and left her husband, Blinking Jack, behind. With alternating entries from each of them, A Virtuous Woman recounts the tale of their years together in an “exquisitely realised piece of writing” (Elizabeth Buchan, The Mail on Sunday). From their very different backgrounds—Ruby a daughter of wealth, Jack a penniless tenant farmer—to their relationships with their landlord and his family, and the strength they drew from each other in the face of hardship, this story of a marriage is “full of fantastically gritty metaphors . . . A book that will change your dreams” (The Observer). “Gibbons again flawlessly reproduces the humor and idiom of rural eastern North Carolina.” —Library Journal

Although Sidney Saylor Farr is renowned in the field of Appalachian studies, her own fascinating personal history has been little known until now. My Appalachia is Farr's story of growing up in the mountains of southeastern Kentucky, where her devotion to her family led her to accept crushing responsibilities that steered her away from her own goals. Her intense determination, however, compelled her to find her own path in life and gave her the strength to become one of the most influential figures in her discipline. At the age of twelve, Farr was forced to leave school to care for her ailing mother and several younger siblings. Given the responsibilities of adulthood early in life, she pushed herself through countless challenges, including poverty, discrimination, and personal loss. Yet she managed to thrive -- she educated herself, raised two sons, and became a voice for her family, community, and culture. In My Appalachia, Farr shares the stories of her struggles and triumphs to create a vivid picture of a culture as enduring as the mountains. Composed of a rich mix of folklore, family history, and spiritual and intellectual exploration, My Appalachia reveals the beauty at the heart of life in Appalachia.

But letting it be mother and daughter. ‘Wondering if this is déjà vu’.
