Parenting Magazine’s Baby Must-Haves
Having a baby means having lots of gear, so it can be a huge challenge to figure out what you must have and what you can live without. This book is like having hundreds of friends who’ve already been there pointing the way. More than 1,200 moms shared the brands they love and don’t and tested products with their own families in their own homes. Priceless tips throughout the book offer real-life insights on everything from trying out a crib to which bottles are good for feeding twins. You’ll also find out when it’s best to skip, save, or splurge; when to buy new and when it’s fine to borrow.
The Preacher and the Presidents: Billy Graham in the White House
By: Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy
Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy unwrap the tale of how one preacher came to know every president from Harry Truman to George W. Bush. Evangelist Billy Graham counseled them all, prayed with them all, knew their spouses and children, and played a role in every presidential election between 1952 and 2000; something no other figure in American history has managed to do.
World Without End
By: Ken Follett
In the year 1327, four children slip away from the cathedral city of Kingbridge the day after Halloween. They are a boy genius, a thief, a bully, and a girl who wants to be a doctor. In the forest, they see two men killed. As adults, their lives will be braided together by love, ambition, greed and revenge. One boy will travel the world, but come home in the end; the other will pursue an impossible love. The girl will defy the might of the church; the other child will be a corrupt, powerful nobleman. They will always live under the long shadow of the unexplained killing they witnessed on the fateful childhood day.
