“A book of great value for every daughter and every mother; useful for sons, too.”—Benjamin Spock, M.D. From the Introduction: The goal of this book is to help readers achieve that separation so that they can either find a way to be friends with their mothers, or at least recognize and accept that their mothers did the best they could—even if it wasn't “good enough”—and to stop blaming them. Among the issues to be covered: • To understand how a daughter's attachment to her mother—more so than her relationship with her father—colors all her other relationships, and to analyze why it is more difficult for daughters than sons to separate from their mothers, as well as why daughters are more subject than sons to a mother's manipulation • To recognize the difference between a healthy and a destructive mother-daughter connection, and to define clearly the “bad mommy,” in order to help readers who have trouble acknowledging their childhood losses to begin to comprehend them • To conjugate what I call the “Bad Mommy Taboo”—why our culture is more eager to protect the sanctity of maternity than it is to protect emotionally abused daughters • To describe the evolution of the "unpleasable" mother—in all likelihood, she was bereft of maternal love as a child—and to recognize the huge, and often poignant, stake she has in keeping her grown daughter dependent and off-balance • To illustrate the consequent controlling behavior—in some cases, cloaked in fragility or good intentions—of such mothers, which falls into general patterns, including: the Doormat, the Critic, the Smotherer, the Avenger, the Deserter • To understand that the daughter has a similar stake in either being a slave to or hating her mother—the two sides of her depen dency and immaturity • To illustrate the responsive behavior—and survival mechanisms —of daughters, which is determined in part by such variables as birth rank, family history, and temperament, and which also falls into patterns, including: the Angel, the Superachiever, the Cipher, the Troublemaker, the Defector • To show how to redefine the mother-daughter relationship, so that each can learn to see and accept the other as she is today, appreciating each other's good qualities and not being snared by the bad • Finally, to demonstrate that a redefined relationship with one's mother—adult to adult—frees you from the past, whether that re definition ultimately results in real friendship, affectionate truce, or divorce.

“There’s one thing I know – God exists.” At age nineteen, MaryAnne McMillen severed two vital nerves at the base of her skull when she suffered a near fatal fall. This was followed by an out-of-body experience, life after death, in which she heard the words, “It’s not your time.” When the two nerves fused together, MaryAnne was left in unrelenting, excruciating pain. Being the mother of a young son and married to a philandering brute of a husband when the accident occurred, the family disallowed the use of any medicine because it was against their religion. After fourteen years of agony, doctors were finally able to perform a unique surgery known as intraspinal rhizotomy. This story weaves together the idea of family and faith, while also creating a sense of longing in the reader’s own life for something bigger than themselves. Mommy’s Writings is the extraordinary memoir of the love between a mother and her young son, and a great-grandmother whose intense devotion to the two of them kept their little family together. It is a story of faith in God, of forgiveness and acceptance, and of gratitude.

Fretful that her lifelong struggle with anxiety, depression and misplaced approval seeking may be hereditary, first-time author Joni Pitt is determined to save her young daughter from a similar fate. Outlining her real-life passage to the suburban Seventh Circle of Hell through a minefield of eating disorders, twisted corporate star-making machines, postpartum depression and crushing humiliation on the corporate Mommy Track, Pitt captures an Origin of the Demon Species across five years of alternately amusing and heartbreaking journals. Ultimately, time and counseling provide the perspective to strike an armed truce with the demons of anxiety and depression, to deconstruct their antics and to pass on the wisdom of experience to her daughter. In D is for Demons, Pitt (“Mommy”) animates her otherworldly tormenters with a whimsical writing style that colors her journey downward and back to near-redemption. Knowing that demons are managed, never vanquished, she guides daughter Julia in all aspects of spy-worthy demon counterinsurgency. Her message is delivered in short chapters that range from cheeky advice for fostering destructive habits, to finding an honest existence, to the mandatory acceptance of personal responsibility. In sync with Pitt’s emotional growth, D is for Demons evolves from a Demon Handbook of Dirty Tricks to a matriarchal family cookbook for living, passed from a loving mother to daughter and intended to span generations. The book symbolizes the determination of mothers of every species, however wounded, to stand between danger and their offspring.

Find fulfillment in knowing that every task, no matter how small, has incredible significance to God. A mom's work is never finished--from changing diapers and fixing meals, to helping kids with their homework. Often the first one to rise and the last one to sleep, a mom doesn't need a special award for her work; she just wants to feel like her work matters and is appreciated. But often, mothers don't always feel they are affirmed for all that they do. While moms tend to look to people for affirmation, the truth is, the only place to find this appreciation is to look to God. Based on Matthew 25:31-46, where Jesus tells his servants that the work they've done for the least of these, they have done directly for him, Well Done, Good and Faithful Mommy helps moms realize that everything they offer their children, they offer directly to Jesus. Moms will find fulfillment in knowing that every task they do, no matter how small, has incredible significance to God.

GRANITE FALLS is a work of fiction; a novel with a Capra-esque (Meet John Doe) quality. It is about "The Little [Town] That Could." which picks itself up, dusts itself off and reinvents itself after years of neglect as the American industrial age decimates. Tucked in the gently rolling hills of the Rust Belt where three states merge by the banks of the Ohio River, Thompsonville is a small county seat typical of so many towns left behind by the loss of manufacturing jobs and American business. The downtown area has deteriorated to such an extent that there is virtually no business there, other than that of its county offices. This occurred over many yearsin direct correlation to the town's plants being shuttered, the closing of mills and the relocation of companies attempting to capitalize on the lower cost of wages in other states and then overseas. An ensemble group navigates their lives from 1992, when several are graduating from high school, as they attend college, enter careers, marry, divorce, etcetera. After fifteen years apart, the group reconnects in their hometown, each for their own reason frustrated by the national economy, their inability to find jobs or keep their companies afloat. Recognizing that they cannot expect the government to solve their hometown's problems due to the general state of the American economy, the group determines to rebuild Thompsonville (and rename it Granite Falls) by combining their efforts and enlisting the help of the town's businesspeople. In order to accomplish their plan. it is necessary to either sell it to the current mayor or run against him in the next election coinciding with the presidential election of 2008.

Comprehensive, reassuring, empathetic, realistic and practical, What to Expect the Second Yearis filled with solutions, strategies, and plenty of parental pep talks. It helps parents decode the fascinating, complicated, sometimes maddening, always adorable little person last year's baby has become.

Black-robed priests roam the countryside with shotguns. The Green Legionnaires break into houses. Acid rains ruin the forest of America, as hordes of refugees from the desolate northern cities travel south for the most terrible of winters. For Arthur Ferrier and his family, the pleasant town of South Haven has long been home. But what was once so familiar and comfortable has now been dissolved into a frightening strangeness. The local newspaper stops delivering, the power fails, and then come the food riots and the closing of the hospitals. For reasons no one really seems to understand, the centers of civilized life are breaking apart all around them. But Arthur remembers his father’s dream, and he fingers the key around his neck—a key that opens a lock to a door far away in the northern mountains, a place where he and Marilyn, his wife, hope to live and raise their children in peace. Thus begins the odyssey of the Ferrier family as they pursue their last hope: the safe haven prepared by a wise grandfather. It is a journey filled with adventure, peril, and desperate faith. And One Hundred Times to China is a novel of terror, courage, and one family’s fight for survival with life’s greatest gift as its only weapon—their love for one another.
