What benefit is hope, when you're trapped inside a nightmare that has no end?<br /><br />Abandoned by those who claimed to love her and manipulated into the sex industry as a teen mum, Sophie finds herself in the middle of a drug and human trafficking ring with no hope of escape. The only way out is to become the author of her own death and leave her daughter an orphan until a life-changing offer from a stranger gives her a taste of the freedom she so desires.<br /><br />Hidden away in a quaint beach town, Sophie and Lacie build a new life, clinging to the promises scribed in a handful of mysterious letters, until the strong grip of her past and the men who controlled it, turn up and rip her newfound peace to shreds. Alone, tortured and separated from her young daughter, Sophie has to decide whether to cling to impossible hope or give in to the desperate need to end her suffering. What would you choose?<br /><br />BEAUTIFUL FRAGMENTS is full of suspense, heartbreak and breathtaking transformation as Sophie discovers her worth and fights for her freedom against all odds. Set in New Zealand, this novel is a story about the power of grace, love and kindness and a celebration of the unbreakable strength of the human spirit.

<p><b>Hard-hitting divorce lawyer James Sexton shares his insights and wisdom from the front lines of divorce to keep you out of his office and improve your relationship.</b><br /><b></b><br /><b></b><i>If You're in My Office, It's Already Too Late</i>. James Sexton knows this. After dealing with more than a thousand clients whose marriages have dissolved over everything from an ill-advised threesome with the nanny to the uneven division of carpool duties, he also knows all of the what-not-to-dos for couples who want to build—and consistently work to preserve—a lasting, fulfilling relationship. Described by former clients as a “courtroom gunslinger” and “the sociopath you want on your side,” Sexton tells the unvarnished truth about relationships, diving straight into the most common marital problems. These usually derive from dishonest—or nonexistent—communication. Even when the alleged reason for separation is one spouse’s new “personal trainer,” there’s likely a communication problem that predates the fitness kick. Symptom and root cause get confused all the time.</p><p>Sexton has spent his career working with spouses-to-be-no-longer. Reverse engineering a relationship can help to identify and fix what does not work. Ever feel like you’re holding back criticism of your spouse because you just can’t have that fight right now? Sexton will tell you to “Hit Send Now.” Maybe you aren’t as adventurous as you used to be, or need some "you time," but for some reason it seems weird or exhausting to change up the routine now. Sexton knows where that mentality leads and offers viable alternative paths to take. Though he deals constantly with the heartbreak of others, he still believes in romance and the transformative power of love. This book is his opportunity to use what he has learned to help couples that aren’t so far gone get back on track.</p>

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • A <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> NOTABLE BOOK • </b><i>America’s Bitter Pill</i> is Steven Brill’s acclaimed book on how the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, was written, how it is being implemented, and, most important, how it is changing—and failing to change—the rampant abuses in the healthcare industry. It’s a fly-on-the-wall account of the titanic fight to pass a 961-page law aimed at fixing America’s largest, most dysfunctional industry. It’s a penetrating chronicle of how the profiteering that Brill first identified in his trailblazing<i> Time</i> magazine cover story continues, despite Obamacare. And it is the first complete, inside account of how President Obama persevered to push through the law, but then failed to deal with the staff incompetence and turf wars that crippled its implementation. <br />  <br /> But by chance <i>America’s Bitter Pill</i> ends up being much more—because as Brill was completing this book, he had to undergo urgent open-heart surgery. Thus, this also becomes the story of how one patient who thinks he knows everything about healthcare “policy” rethinks it from a hospital gurney—and combines that insight with his brilliant reporting. The result: a surprising new vision of how we can fix American healthcare so that it stops draining the bank accounts of our families and our businesses, and the federal treasury.<br /> <b> </b><br /> <b>Praise for <i>America’s Bitter Pill</i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> “A tour de force . . . a comprehensive and suitably furious guide to the political landscape of American healthcare . . . persuasive, shocking.”<b>—<i>The New York Times</i> </b><br />  <br /> “An energetic, picaresque, narrative explanation of much of what has happened in the last seven years of health policy . . . [Brill] has pulled off something extraordinary.”<b><i>—The New York Times Book Review</i></b><br />  <br /> “A thunderous indictment of what Brill refers to as the ‘toxicity of our profiteer-dominated healthcare system.’ ”<b>—<i>Los Angeles Times</i></b><br /> <i> </i><br /> “A sweeping and spirited new book [that] chronicles the surprisingly juicy tale of reform.”<b>—<i>The Daily Beast</i></b><br /> <b> </b><br /> “One of the most important books of our time.”<b>—Walter Isaacson</b><br />  <br /> “Superb . . . Brill has achieved the seemingly impossible—written an exciting book about the American health system.”<b>—<i>The</i> <i>New York Review of Books</i></b><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>
