As seen in, The Washington Post, Woman’s World, Flavorwire, HelloGiggles, Bustle, Brit & Co, and more! “A quirky, funny, and deeply thoughtful book…We’re already dying to know if there will be a sequel.”—HelloGiggles “Filled with characters you’ll love and wish you lived next door to in real life.”—Bustle “So witty, amusing, and perceptive that I can’t decide if I liked the writing, the characters, or the story better. They’re all so well done.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Waxman’s voice is witty, emotional and often profound.”— (UK) Grab life by the roots. Lilian Girvan has been a single mother for three years—ever since her husband died in a car accident. One mental breakdown and some random suicidal thoughts later, she’s just starting to get the hang of this widow thing. She can now get her two girls to school, show up to work, and watch TV like a pro. The only problem is she’s becoming overwhelmed with being underwhelmed. At least her textbook illustrating job has some perks—like actually being called upon to draw whale genitalia. Oh, and there’s that vegetable-gardening class her boss signed her up for. Apparently, being the chosen illustrator for a series of boutique vegetable guides means getting your hands dirty, literally. Wallowing around in compost on a Saturday morning can’t be much worse than wallowing around in pajamas and self-pity. After recruiting her kids and insanely supportive sister to join her, Lilian shows up at the Los Angeles botanical garden feeling out of her element. But what she’ll soon discover—with the help of a patient instructor and a quirky group of gardeners—is that into every life a little sun must shine, whether you want it to or not...

At some point in their lives, many people feel they have been rejected and forgotten. They may see friends and family members go on to lead fulfilling lives and believe such a life will never come to them. Their lives are filled with a sense of rejection, whether real or imagined. Author Dennis R. McLeod understands that feeling and shares it in "Small Beginnings." Because of the verbal abuse he suffered as a child and being told he would never amount to anything, plus a marriage and divorce at age thirty-three, he suffered very badly from rejection. Even though he achieved much, the feeling of rejection remained. This is the story of the journey that started when-unbeknown to Dennis-God took him as a fifteen-year-old and started training and equipping him for the future. Dennis shares how God used him to minister in several countries, as well as pastor a church in Hamilton, New Zealand. The truth is God is there for us, but we are sometimes so tied up in our situations that we cannot hear His voice calling us. "Small Beginnings" shows how our lives can be turned around and fulfilled if we stop and listen to what God has planned for us. We are never truly rejected when we know and have faith in God's love.

Poland, 1906 On a warm spring night, in the small Jewish cemetery of Zokof, Friedl Alterman is wakened from death. On the ground above her crouches Itzik Leiber, a reclusive, unbelieving fourteen-year-old whose fatal mistake has spurred the town's angry residents to violence. The childless Friedl rises to guide him to safety-only to find she cannot go back to her tomb. Now Friedl is trapped in that thin world between life and death, her brash decision binding her forever to Itzik and his family: she is fated to be forever restless, and he, forever haunted by the ghosts of his past.Years later, after Itzik himself has gone to his grave, his son, Nathan, knows nothing of his bitter father's childhood. When he begrudgingly goes to Poland on business, Nathan decides on a whim to visit his ancestral town. There, in Zokof, he meets the mysterious Rafael, the town's last remaining Jew, who promises to pass on all the things Itzik had failed to teach his son-about Zokof, about his faith, and about himself. And yet, like the generation before him, Nathan keeps what he learns hidden inside himself. With the family legacy in danger of being lost, Friedl's restless spirit guides Itzik's precocious granddaughter, Ellen, on a journey of her own to Zokof, where only Friedl can help Ellen unlock the mysteries of her family's past-and only Ellen can help Friedl break her agonizing enslavement. A stunning debut novel of enormous scope and beauty, A Day of Small Beginnings tells the timeless story of the Leiber family; of the secrets that break them, the love that binds them, and the town that is both their curse and their redemption.

Excerpt from Small Beginnings: Or, the Way to Get On John walter was born at Clapham on the 23d February, 1776. His father, a newspaper proprietor and printer in London, was a man of considerable ability, who, by the time John came to be ready for a profession, had realised some money. It would seem that it was a subject of doubt whether the young man should continue his father's business or go into the Church. The latter alternative was at first adopted; but we are not told how it came to be departed from, though it is likely that John Walter, who was not only a far-seeing but a conscientious youth from the beginning, and had early accustomed himself to look to the connection between means and ends, discovered that there was, in regard to him, a false reckoning. The intention was changed, and the first step taken which was to lead to fortune and renown, by binding him as an apprentice to his father, and learning him the art of composing or setting up types. He was some time after sent to Oxford, where he remained only one year; and. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
