In the Dominican Republic, thirteen-year-old Annabel and fourteen-year-old Cristian know they love one another. The best friends, who come from very different households, deny their love out of fear that their parents will keep them apart. But it's not their families they need to worry about. Evil forces are at work in the village of Enrriquillo, searching for souls to claim for the devil. Cristian's father continually lusts for money, going so far as to make a pact with the devil to get it. He soon wins the lottery and becomes very wealthy, but the price becomes painfully apparent when, one by one, his children start dying strange deaths. Annabel's mother, perceiving something is wrong with Cristian's family, takes her daughter and flees, moving to the city for her daughter's safety. Twelve years later, Annabel finally discovers the truth about Cristian's tragic past. Relying on her unshakable faith in God and the power of love, Annabel returns to Enrriquillo against her mother's wishes to confront Cristian's unloving father-and challenge the devil to save her beloved's soul.

Christopher Walker has employed Eastern arts tools for years, embracing the impermanence of life and helping people learn to naturally heal themselves from the stress and emotional turmoil experienced at the end of an intimate, personal relationship. Founder of Innerwealth Consulting, Walker has coached thousands of individuals to evolve and grow, using the universal laws of nature. The ancient laws of nature tap the deepest core of an individual's humanity dealing with emotional attachments, heartbreak and complex human dynamics. The laws recognize three levels of human mind: the lower mind, which is guided by material attachments; the middle mind, which is guided by emotions; and the higher mind, which is guided by the experience of the journey and cares nothing of the outcome. The ancient laws provide guidance regarding how to work with all three levels of mind to achieve harmony. Breaking Up: Using the Laws of Nature to Learn How to Let Go applies ancient wisdom to modern times to help one manage the end of a relationship: to let go through the challenge of emotional and physical separation, to move forward in life with love and passion and to maintain respect for everyone involved.

From the author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers Small Great Things and My Sister's Keeper, a novel exploring the story of a young woman overcome by the demands of having a family. Paige has only a few vivid memories of her mother, who abandoned her at five years old. Now, having left her father behind in Chicago for dreams of art school and marriage to an ambitious young doctor, she finds herself with a child of her own. But her mother's absence and shameful memories of her past force her to doubt whether she could ever be capable of bringing joy and meaning into the life of her child, gifts her own mother never gave. Harvesting the Heart is written with astonishing clarity and evocative detail, convincing in its depiction of emotional pain, love, and vulnerability, and recalls the writing of Alice Hoffman and Kristin Hannah. Out of Paige's struggle to find wholeness, Jodi Picoult crafts an absorbing novel peopled by richly drawn characters, and explores motherhood with a power and depth only she is capable of. “A brilliant, moving examination of motherhood, brimming with detail and emotion.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch “Jodi Picoult explores the fragile ground of ambivalent motherhood in her lush second novel. This story belongs to… the lucky reader.” —The New York Times Book Review
