📒Girl Unbroken ✍ Regina Calcaterra
📝Girl Unbroken Book Synopsis : In the highly anticipated sequel to her New York Times bestseller Etched in Sand, Regina Calcaterra pairs with her youngest sister Rosie to tell Rosie’s harrowing, yet ultimately triumphant, story of childhood abuse and survival. They were five kids with five different fathers and an alcoholic mother who left them to fend for themselves for weeks at a time. Yet through it all they had each other. Rosie, the youngest, is fawned over and shielded by her older sister, Regina. Their mother, Cookie, blows in and out of their lives “like a hurricane, blind and uncaring to everything in her path.” But when Regina discloses the truth about her abusive mother to her social worker, she is separated from her younger siblings Norman and Rosie. And as Rosie discovers after Cookie kidnaps her from foster care, the one thing worse than being abandoned by her mother is living in Cookie’s presence. Beaten physically, abused emotionally, and forced to labor at the farm where Cookie settles in Idaho, Rosie refuses to give in. Like her sister Regina, Rosie has an unfathomable strength in the face of unimaginable hardship—enough to propel her out of Idaho and out of a nightmare. Filled with maturity and grace, Rosie’s memoir continues the compelling story begun in Etched in Sand—a shocking yet profoundly moving testament to sisterhood and indomitable courage.

📒The Constitution ✍ Bill Rhatican
📝The Constitution Book Synopsis : Have you ever started to make a dessert only to find, somewhere in the fine print, a hidden ingredient which is not in your spice cupboard? I can't count the number of times this scenario has happened to me. I get everything ready to create something, and find another ingredient which I don't have, try to substitute, and ruin the dish. With that in mind, I created a "Thumbnail" shopping list which I guarantee has all of the ingredients you will need for the dessert you are going to make, so you can always be prepared when baking with these recipes. Another frustration I have, is being instructed to turn to another page to complete the dessert I am working on. There I am, with my fingers covered with some unknown ingredient, flipping through the cookbook, feeling like Hansel and Gretel depositing crumbs which are destined to stick to the pages being turned, instead of staying in the bowl to become part of the tasty delicacy. Hence, complete recipes! I organized everything onto one page for simplicity. You may find a filling in the filling section, but you will also find that filling on the same page when it is used in a specific dessert. With everyone being more aware of healthy eating habits, I added nutritional facts about each recipe. With this cookbook, you can still enjoy that "home cooking" and know exactly what you are adding to your diet.
