Trees Tall as Mountains (The Journey Mama Writings: Book 1)

by Rachel Devenish Ford

For eight years Rachel Devenish Ford has been writing about her not quite normal life at her blog, Journey Mama, telling stories about her days with characteristic honesty and humor. Now for the first time, this writing is captured in book format in the Journey Mama Writings Series.

In Trees Tall as Mountains, Rachel writes about her life of volunteering in an intentional community in the woods of Northern California with her Superstar Husband and three young children, cultivating joy and her faith in God despite a continuing fight with anxiety and very simple means. She is candid and hopeful, intimate and humorous. Because Rachels explorations of faith are not trite or churchy, her writing is beloved by believer and non-believer alike. Her bright, honest words make stranger...

Diary of a Hoarder's Daughter

by Izabelle Winter

Imagine living in a house where you can only walk sideways, where the Christmas lights stay up all year and tins in the kitchen explode with age. Of eight televisions in the lounge, only one works. A new carpet which arrived rolled up ready to be laid was 'temporarily' placed on the stairs in 1974; forty years later it was still there. Why does someone with two feet need 173 shoes? Where were his teeth, his hearing aid and the hoover? Where had the floor gone?

Meet my dad – 82, eccentric, stubborn, knows everything and collects ‘stuff’. His house, his stuff – what’s the problem? For him there wasn’t a problem, until one day following a nasty incident with a large tree he was no longer able to live in the house. It was then down to me, his daughter to make the hous...

Dirty Laundry: a cleansing memoir

by Izzy Blizzard

Izzy Blizzard’s frank memoir covers six decades of her tumultuous life, beginning when she was nine years old. Here, in the preface to her book, Izzy warns readers they may not like her:

“My mother told me the only way to truly cleanse one’s dirty laundry is to bring it out into the sunshine and air it. I’m giving that a try, airing the worst of my own dirty laundry.

“For example, few things are less attractive than suicide or extra-marital affairs. I've attempted the former and have been involved in the latter—multiple times—so I'm well-acquainted with how people react to a woman like me. It isn't pretty. At times, it's almost uglier than my own behavior.

“I've also considered murdering someone, but I didn't do it. Does that make me ...

Anneewakee: One Boy's Journey

by Steve Salem Evans

This is the true story of one boy's journey through Anneewakee Boys' Wilderness Camp.
Anneewakee opened in 1962 as a treatment center for troubled boys and was essentially shut down in the late 80's amidst allegations of physical and sexual abuse.
There are many traumatized to this day by what they endured at the treatment center and those who credit it with saving their lives. The stories run the gamut, from outright tortuous conditions to those who remember it as a happy place, a place filled with fond memories and lasting friendships.
This is Steve's story and his story falls somewhere in the middle. Ordered to Anneewakee by a judge who was sick of seeing the fifteen year old in his courtroom and, on his thirteenth visit in front of the judge, was ordered to A...
