📒Where The Light Gets In ✍ Kimberly Williams-Paisley
📝Where the Light Gets In Book Synopsis : Many know Kimberly Williams-Paisley as the bride in the popular Steve Martin remakes of the Father of the Bride movies, the calculating Peggy Kenter on Nashville, or the wife of country music artist, Brad Paisley. But behind the scenes, Kim was dealing with a tragic secret: her mother, Linda, was suffering from a rare form of dementia that slowly crippled her ability to talk, write and eventually recognize people in her own family. Where the Light Gets In tells the full story of Linda’s illness—called primary progressive aphasia—from her early-onset diagnosis at the age of 62 through the present day. Kim draws a candid picture of the ways her family reacted for better and worse, and how she, her father and two siblings educated themselves, tried to let go of shame and secrecy, made mistakes, and found unexpected humor and grace in the midst of suffering. Ultimately the bonds of family were strengthened, and Kim learned ways to love and accept the woman her mother became. With a moving foreword by actor and advocate Michael J. Fox, Where the Light Gets In is a heartwarming tribute to the often fragile yet unbreakable relationships we have with our mothers.
📒Where The Light Gets In ✍ Lucy Dillon
📝Where The Light Gets In Book Synopsis : ***** The inspiring, life-enhancing and evocative new novel from the bestselling author of A Hundred Pieces of Me and All I Ever Wanted. 'No one tugs at the heartstrings quite like Lucy Dillon' Red magazine ‘You know those cracks in your heart, Lorna, where things didn’t work out, but you picked yourself up and carried on? That’s where the fear gets out. And where the light gets in.’ It was Betty, defiant to the end, who sent Lorna back to Longhampton. If Lorna’s learned one thing from Betty it’s that courage is something you paint on like red lipstick, even when you’re panicking inside. And right now, with the keys to the town’s gallery in her hand, Lorna feels about as courageous as Betty’s anxious little dachshund, trembling beside her. Lorna’s come home to Longhampton to fulfil a long-held dream, but she knows, deep down, there are ghosts she needs to lay to rest first. This is where her tight-knit family shattered into silent pieces. It’s where her unspoken fears about herself took root and where her own secret, complicated love began. It’s not exactly a fresh start. But as Lorna – and the little dog – tentatively open their cracked hearts to old friends and new ones, facing hard truths and fresh promises, something surprisingly beautiful begins to grow around the gallery, something so inspirational even Lorna couldn’t have predicted the light it lets into her world . . . Praise for Lucy Dillon: 'Bittersweet, lovely and ultimately redemptive; the kind of book that makes you want to live your own life better' Jojo Moyes 'This vibrant and uplifting novel has not only entertained me hugely, but made me change the way I look at life.' Katie Fforde 'Satisfying and clever and deeply moving' Sophie Kinsella
📒Gerry Wedd ✍ Mark Thomson
📝Gerry Wedd Book Synopsis : "When I first came across Mambo, I remember looking at the wall of T-shirt designs, at the breadth and wit of the drawing there, and thought: why would they ever use mine?" In the late 1980s the young surfer and artist, Gerry Wedd, came to the attention of Mambo Graphics, the iconoclastic surf-wear company. With his sense of humour, his subject matter, his encyclopaedic knowledge of surfing culture, and his 'scratch board' style of drawing, Wedd found a spiritual home in Mambo and helped build the developing Mambo ethic. But there's more to Gerry Wedd than Mambo. This latest book in the South Australian Living Artists (SALA) series showcases the work of a unique artist who works in a wide range of media, including ceramics, public art, jewellery and fabric design. In a career spanning three decades, Gerry Wedd's works maintain a sardonic wit and thought-provoking charm. In 'Gerry Wedd' author Mark Thomson reveals a man whose life and work is a pleasant shambles of activity, zigzagging in and out of so many subjects and spaces; an artist who makes no apology for not being modernist or post-, post-post-, or any other sort.

📒Development From Within ✍ Varun Vidyarthi
📝Development from Within Book Synopsis : "Development from below" is not enough. The key to sustainable social change is development from within- change in individual and group consciousness that leads to collective capacity for self-management among people's organizations. This book is a conversation between a practitioner and a scholar of participatory development exploring the inner and outer journeys of both development facilitators and women villagers. It is grounded in the experience of manavodaya, a non-profit organization that has facilitated self help groups among rural poor and trained development practitioners in methods of dialogue and empowerment for over twenty years. The book presents a successful method of dialogue called collective reflection that has enabled significant changes in the lives of the participants-both development professionals and villagers alike.

📒How The Light Gets In ✍ M.J. Hyland
📝How The Light Gets In Book Synopsis : A powerful debut from an Australian novelist that features one of the most likeable but contrary figures you are likely to meet in contemporary fiction. Lou Connor, a gifted, unhappy sixteen-year-old, is desperate to escape her life of poverty in Sydney. When she is offered an exchange student placement at a school in America it seems as if her dreams will be fulfilled. Her host family has a beautiful house in Illinois and couldn't be more welcoming . . . until she starts to be distubed by the suffocating and repressed atmosphere of their suburban mansion and things begin to go terribly wrong. How the Light Gets In is an acutely observed story of adolescence, reminiscent of American Beauty in its dissection of engrained prejudices and middle-class hypocrisy. In Lou Connor, Hyland has created a larger-than-life protagonist who mesmerises the reader with her vivacity and vulnerability, from hopeful beginning to unexpected, haunting end.

📒How The Light Gets In ✍ Mary McEvoy
📝How The Light Gets In Book Synopsis : Mary McEvoy, one of Ireland's best-loved actresses, lived for many years with undiagnosed depression. From the outside looking in, she was a successful, confident woman, making strides in her career, happy in her personal life. Yet, behind the scenes, there were times when she was so crippled with despair that the least she could do was to make it out of bed. Here, for the first time, Mary describes the true nightmare behind the façade, and how, since diagnosis, she has learned to cope, and deepened in wisdom through the experience. She traces the roots of her depression - a condition which, for a long time, she felt like she had no right to own, given that she experienced a happy childhood in a loving family. Yet key negative incidents in her early life would have a profound shape on what followed. She also looks at the broader question as to why depression is so prevalent today, and questions the modern obsession with perfection and youth, offering her 'least you can do' philosophy as a welcome antidote. She shares her insights into how a person can not only learn to cope with depression, but ultimately live life to its full potential - whatever that is. Bravely recounted and full of down-to-earth wisdom and honesty, How The Light Gets In is a book that shines a light into dark places.
