Rosa Larkin is down on her luck in London, so when she inherits a near-derelict corner shop in a quaint Devon village, her first thought is to sell it for cash and sort out her life. But nothing is straightforward about this legacy. While the identity of her benefactor remains a mystery, he - or she - has left one important legal proviso: that the shop cannot be sold, only passed on to somebody who really deserves it. Rosa makes up her mind to give it a go: to put everything she has into getting the shop up and running again in the small seaside community of Cockleberry Bay. But can she do it all on her own?

This extraordinary document represents a new form of historical research and straightens out many open questions and misinterpretations. It takes the form of direct dialogues between a modern researcher and a member of the Qumran Essene community. Alive around the time of Christ, this community has become the focus of ideas about the connection of Jesus' teachings to earlier traditions.

On the one hand, if Essie hadn't written that letter - the one that only her best friend was meant to see - then she'd still be living like an actual proper grown-up, tucked up with Paul in his picture-perfect cottage, maybe even planning their wedding.... On the other hand (if her true feelings hadn't accidentally taken the Internet by storm, that is), she never would have met Zillah and Conor - not to mention Lucas. And she'd never have found out just how much life there is to be lived....

At the tender age of two, baseball prodigy Christian Haupt began sharing vivid memories of being a baseball player in the 1920s and '30s. From riding cross-country on trains to his fierce rivalry with Babe Ruth, Christian described historical facts about the life of American hero and baseball legend Lou Gehrig that he could not have possibly known at the time. Distraught by her son's uncanny revelations, Christian's mother, Cathy, embarked on a sacred journey of discovery.

It was nice to listen to chapters of 10 minutes or so. You could stop and digest what was being said. I went to a meditation evening and the theme was similar to this book. It's really about being mindful and bringing it into your every day life.

A light worker is anyone who has heard the internal call to make a difference in the world. A light warrior is someone who chooses to respond to the call. Light Warrior is a manual for those who are ready to take action but may be feeling sensitive, powerless, and fearful of the unknown. In this audiobook, angel expert Kyle Gray encourages you to identify the fears holding you back and gives you the spiritual armory to help you become the light warrior you were born to be.

Today the orgasm is an indicator of personal empowerment, self-acceptance, and self-love as well as an affirmation of a woman's right to enjoy pleasure in her body and her overall life. The Orgasm Prescription for Women opens the door to sexual fulfillment, sensual expression, increased intimacy, and more fulfilling orgasms. The 21-day program, meditations, and daily rituals can also lead to deep personal transformation and spiritual growth.

Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but only if we skip it. Fasting is a wonderfully healthy state. When we fast our insulin levels fall, as do our blood sugar, triglyceride and cholesterol levels. Most usefully, when we fast we lose weight. But what do too many of us do on waking? We break that lovely gift of fasting - we literally breakfast - and we eat, so courting type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, strokes, hypertension, dementia and cancers of the liver, breast, pancreas and uterus.

Ive never really eaten breakfast, so was interested when I saw this title. My Partner insists I have something and Im mad not too. Now I know different.

Carbohydrates are a big thing in my diet so I will make a conscious effort to change this, although that will be harder to convince my partner as I have just taken up a gym membership and of course need carbs for energy!

Time will tell. Good book, facts and figures washed over me a little but none the less very informative.
