    Full of startling revelations, this is the previously untold story of greed, corruption and scandal at the heart of Rangers F.C., told, definitively, by the man who was at the very centre of the storm.From being the most dominant club in Scottish football history, Rangers F.C. was sold to Craig Whyte in 2011 . . . for £1. Although touted as Rangers' saviour, he was soon hung out to dry as the fall guy for Rangers' misery as the unthinkable happened. The club was plunged into liquidation and the club suffered the indignity of demotion to the lowest echelon of Scottish football. The demise of Rangers saw Whyte's reputation eviscerated on the pages of every newspaper, his name vilified on radio shows, TV programmes and blogs. In 2012, he was arrested and accused of fraud. Although he was acquitted, he had to endure years of false accusations from media outlets and multiple death threats from fans. Now, for the very first time, this is his account of the events that shocked world football. “Incendiary…packed full of explosive revelations” – THE HERALD“Deliciously indiscreet” – THE SCOTSMAN

    This is the story of Leah Day’s goddess quilts. 
    Leah’s creative journey began with the birth of her son and the conception of her first goddess quilt in 2007. While making that quilt, she found the vehicle for change and self-discovery she’d been searching for her whole life. 
    This is Leah’s story of transformation and how each goddess quilt in this series pushed her to become a better woman, wife, mother, and quilter. 
    This is not a book about any known goddesses from myth, legend, or religion. Leah’s goddess quilts are fantasy self-portraits that represent who she wished she could be and how she wanted to feel. 
    Exquisitely illustrated with dozens of detailed, full page photographs, quilters, artists, and anyone with an eye for bright color and gorgeous art quilts will find limitless inspiration inside this book. 
    By focusing on these powerful images through the many months, sometimes multiple years, it took to create each quilt, Leah found the wisdom and courage to change her life, her habits and even her thoughts. 
    Leah Day’s Goddess Quilts is an artist’s memoir that shows how you too can embrace courage and cultivate gratitude. Leah openly shares her personal struggles with self-criticism, the danger of dwelling on past pain, and how she overcame many obstacles blocking her path. 
    This is the story of a creative entrepreneur following a childhood dream. A story of success and failure and the struggle to remain humble in an egotistical social media fueled world. This is the story of a wife and mother embracing her creativity and releasing it to the world. 
    The goddess on the cover is called Release Your Light. 
    This is the light of your creativity. 
    It is not a spark or a flickering flame. 
    It’s an explosion of light more powerful than the sun. 
    Are you ready to release YOUR light?

    A poignant meditation on the bonds between mothers and daughters—and the inescapable effects of time—from the author of A Wrinkle in Time.  In the second memoir of her Crosswicks Journals, Madeleine L’Engle chronicles a season of extremes. Four generations of family have gathered at Crosswicks, her Connecticut farmhouse, to care for L’Engle’s ninety-year-old mother. As summer days fade to sleepless nights, her mother’s health rapidly declines and her once astute mind slips into senility. With poignant honesty, L’Engle describes the gifts and graces, as well as the painful emotional cost, of caring for the one who once cared for you.   As she spends her days with a mother who barely resembles the competent and vigorous woman who bore and raised her, L’Engle delves into her memories, reflecting on the lives of the strong women in her family’s history. Evoking both personal experiences and universal themes, The Summer of the Great-Grandmother takes an unflinching look at diminishment and death, all the while celebrating the wonder of life.  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Madeleine L’Engle including rare images from the author’s estate.
