The Way of the Mysterial Woman: Upgrading How You Live, Love, and Lead
By Suzanne Anderson MA and Susan Cannon PhD

The Way of the Mysterial Woman is for every woman who feels the call into greatness, authenticity, and meaningful living; women who are finally ready to step into their lives with mind, body, heart, and soul fully engaged and awaken their true potential. Women’s leadership development pioneers Suzanne Anderson and Susan Cannon know that we’re not alone in our yearning to meet this call. In fact, they assure us that this is a naturally occurring global imperative for women.

So we hear the clarion call, but how do we meet it? It’s almost like we need a completely new internal operating system. Fortunately, the co-authors have discovered exactly that―this dynamic guidebook offers us the upgrade we’ve been searching for.

The Way of the Mysterial Woman reads like a riveting Feminine source code, helping us once and for all break through our old limitations, and effectively take our lives to the “next level” so we can meet the unique callings and urgent challenges of these dynamic times. Be warned: this is not a passive book for armchair travelers. Drawing upon real life success stories, based on their 12 years of running renowned University certificate women’s leadership programs, Anderson and Cannon take readers through a step-by-step, transformative “Mysterial Sequence.” Chapter by chapter you’ll find a highly interactive book that offers practical, fun, and compelling insights, suggestions as well as daily practices for making genuine shifts and solid growth happen.

The Way of the Mysterial Woman is a fascinating blend of cutting edge transformational psychology, ancient Mystery school secrets, and visionary evolutionary thinking delivered in a warm, down-to-earth style. It offers the elegant code you have been searching for that finally unlocks your greatest potential.

 

Glass Shatters
By Michelle Meyers

A man wakes up in a living room he doesn’t recognize, unable to remember anything about himself. All he has are the few remnants of his identity scattered throughout the house―clues to his past. He soon learns that he is Charles Lang, a brilliant scientist whose wife, Julie, and daughter, Jess, mysteriously disappeared several years ago. Soon, he begins to recover memories―memories that may or may not be his own―and as he does, he realizes that only by uncovering the details of his former life will he have any hope of being reunited with Julie and Jess.

A haunting tale of love and longing, fate and free will, and the easily blurred lines between fiction and reality, Glass Shatters explores the risks of trying to reinvent oneself, and the dangers of pushing science to its limits.

 

Parting Gifts
By Katrina Willis

Broken by their unorthodox Midwestern childhood, sisters Catherine, Anne, and Jessica Mathers search for love, acceptance, and worth―often in the most unlikely places. Catherine, the oldest of the Mathers sisters, is an English professor battling breast cancer with Cytoxan, red wine, and profanity. Anne is a wife and stay-at-home mother of two struggling to make ends meet in a suburban existence that both suffocates and confounds her. Jessica, the youngest by ten years and estranged―by choice―from her family, is an exotic dancer who feels safer on stage than in a relationship. But when the sisters are faced with an incomprehensible loss, they are forced to reevaluate themselves, their damaged bonds, and their fragile future.

Parting Gifts illuminates one highly dysfunctional family’s tentative, desperate crawl toward a life of meaning and worth.

 

A Girl Like You: A Henrietta and Inspector Howard Novel
By Michelle Cox

Henrietta Von Harmon works as a 26 girl at a corner bar on Chicago’s northwest side. It’s 1935, but things still aren’t looking up since the big crash and her father’s subsequent suicide, leaving Henrietta to care for her antagonistic mother and younger siblings. Henrietta is eventually persuaded to take a job as a taxi dancer at a local dance hall―and just when she’s beginning to enjoy herself, the floor matron turns up dead.

When aloof Inspector Clive Howard appears on the scene, Henrietta agrees to go undercover for him―and is plunged into Chicago’s grittier underworld. Meanwhile, she’s still busy playing mother hen to her younger siblings, as well as to pesky neighborhood boy Stanley, who believes himself in love with her and keeps popping up in the most unlikely places, determined to keep Henrietta safe―even from the Inspector, if need be. Despite his efforts, however, and his penchant for messing up the Inspector’s investigation, the lovely Henrietta and the impenetrable Inspector find themselves drawn to each other in most unsuitable ways.

 

Blue Apple Switchback
By Carrie Highley

Carrie Highley was always a tomboy―and by the time she turned sixteen, she was wishing she were dancing with the girls instead of the boys at cotillion dances. In her early thirties, while living in West Virginia, she discovered a passion for road biking, finally stopped sequestering her deep feelings for women, and began an ill-fated love affair with a female cycling friend. Then, at thirty-six, she found herself skidding into Asheville, North Carolina, holding on tight to the coattails of her doctor husband and spending her time as a stay-at-home mother of two boys.

Moving to North Carolina was Highley’s attempt to reembrace heterosexual married life after her tumultuous time in West Virginia. But in Asheville, she met Charlie, a fellow cyclist twenty-three years her senior, who became her mentor, friend, and father all rolled into one―and as they grew closer, she started unloading her fears into Charlie’s inbox. With Charlie’s support, Highley finally got the courage to do what she’d been waiting her whole life to do: go down the mountain with her hands off the brakes.
