Non- Fiction Book of The Month
When little things have big impacts. This book is for anyone who feels that they’re sleepwalking through life, looking for answers to challenging emotions and the practical tools to begin living the life they want
We have been fooled into believing that ‘Tiny T’ trauma doesn’t matter. There always seem to be huge, intractable problems in the world, so we tend to overlook those small, everyday injuries that drill down to your core. This leaves us with an undercurrent of constant melancholy and niggling pinpricks of anxiety, all wrapped up in the film of other people’s Insta-perfect lives.
But life doesn’t have to be experienced in this suffocating way; we owe it to ourselves to develop Awareness, Acceptance, and take Action on our Tiny T trauma, no matter how ‘small’, and to start living every day as we deserve.’
Fiction Book of The Month
The Wind Knows My Name is a novel by Isabel Allende that tells the story of two child immigrants, separated by time and space, but united by their resilience and their search for a home.
Samuel Adler is a five-year-old Jewish boy who flees Nazi-occupied Vienna in 1938 on a Kindertransport train to England. Anita Díaz is a seven-year-old girl who flees gang violence in El Salvador in 2019 with her mother, seeking asylum in the United States.
Both Samuel and Anita experience the trauma of displacement and separation. Samuel is forced to leave his parents and everything he knows behind, while Anita is separated from her mother at the US-Mexico border. But both children also find strength and hope in their new communities. Samuel finds a surrogate family in England, and Anita finds a safe haven in the home of a kind social worker.
The Wind Knows My Name is a powerful and moving story about the immigrant experience. It is a testament to the resilience of children and the power of hope.

Catherine Sterling thinks she knows her mother. Ruth Sterling is quiet, hardworking, and lives for her daughter. All her life, it's been just the two of them against the world.

Ruth Sterling thinks she knows her daughter. Catherine would never rebel, would never question anything about her mother's past or background. But when Ruth's desperate quest to keep her daughter by her side begins to reveal cracks in Ruth's carefully-constructed world, both mother and daughter begin a dance of deception.
No one can know Ruth's history. There is a reason why Ruth kept them moving every few years, and why she was ready--in a moment's notice--to be gone in the night.
