Memoir

  • Sail Above the Clouds

    by Carole D. Fontaine
    Fontaine shares stories and adventures from her 20-year journey on a sailboat, the joys of life surrounded by the ocean, the challenges she faced, her search to regain her health after a debilitating health crisis and learning to live in a meager 41-foot of living space, with her husband, and a dog. It's also an inspiring tool of self-discovery with each chapter sharing an adventure, a life lesson, a journaling question, and a transformational exercise for readers to discover their own path and... more
  • Surviving the Survivors: A Memoir

    by Ruth Klein
    Ruth Klein’s story is about merchants and landowners—aristocratic Polish Jews. It’s about their lives in refugee and concentration camps.

After their liberation, Ruth’s parents were brought to the Displaced Person Camps in Germany, where they awaited departure to the United States. They we... more
  • 7 Is Enough

    by Allen Webb
    I wrote this book for two main reasons. First reason is I woke up every day with these stories on my mind. I knew for some reason I needed to write them down. The second reason is for future women. Quite honestly I get tired of telling these stories to strangers because most think there is no way this could happen to one person. I can assure you that all stories contained in this book are true and happened to me. If I am interested in a lady again and she is getting interested in me I will just ... more

  • Why Do You Look at Me and See a Girl?

    by Anvi Hoàng

  • Bless the Birds: Living with Love in a Time of Dying

    by Susan J Tweit
    Bless the Birds, a personal journey through the terra incognita of life’s ending, shows us how to be our best when life throws us the worst. Embracing the idea that love will carry us through, this story reminds us that the personal is the political. How we live—each and every day—really does impact the larger world. Our every day actions create the society we live in, and also chart our paths. Writer Susan Tweit and her economist-turned-sculptor husband Richard Cabe had just settled into their ... more

  • Around the world in 65 years

    by Biku Ghosh
    During my recent community volunteering, I have been spending time with an 83-year-old engineer with severe dementia who used to travel abroad a lot. He loved looking at the world maps. He could remember nothing but only had glimpses of memory hearing the names of places or seeing them on the map. He would say, ‘I think I have been there.’ 'Memory is like a fiction' wrote Haruki Murakami. Soon as I began writing this book, memories flooded back with astonishing detail. I want to hold on t... more
