The Secret Garden
Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett
"The Secret Garden was what Mary called it when she was thinking of it. She liked the name, and she liked still more the feeling that when its beautiful old walls shut her in no one knew where she was. It seemed almost like being shut out of the world in some fairy place." A classic of English children's literature, "The Secret Garden" has become Burnett's most popular novel. Exploring the themes of magic, positive thinking and the power inherent in living things, she has created a story that has enchanted readers , young and old, for over a century. Highly recommended.

O segredo do best-seller
Author: Jodie Archer, Matthew L. Jockers
Publisher: Editora Alto Astral Ltda
Se perguntarmos para a maioria das pessoas sobre sucesso no mundo dos livros de ficção, vamos ouvir que é um jogo incerto de bolas de cristal. As vendas de E. L. James ou de Dan Brown parecem uma excentricidade — ocorrências aleatórias em um mercado incompreensível. É frequente ouvirmos que só a moda justifica o sucesso que fazem. Mas e se houvesse um algoritmo que pudesse revelar um DNA secreto de best-sellers, independente do gênero?

Shaman, artist and author Elen Sentier writes, "I was first taught the trees of the goddess as a child. The old ones from the village would tell us about the tree, how it lives, what creatures it lives with, its whole environment. They would tell us stories then we would go to the tree and sit with it, listen to what it had to show and tell us. Later, we would ask it for a piece of its wood to make its spirit- home. These were rituals but all so natural and normal they were just a part of life and living for me as I grew up. TREES OF THE GODDESS will help you find your way of doing this."

Girl in the Woods
Author: Aspen Matis
Publisher: Harper Collins
Girl in the Woods is Aspen Matis's exhilarating true-life adventure of hiking from Mexico to Canada—a coming of age story, a survival story, and a triumphant story of overcoming emotional devastation. On her second night of college, Aspen was raped by a fellow student. Overprotected by her parents who discouraged her from telling of the attack, Aspen was confused and ashamed. Dealing with a problem that has sadly become all too common on college campuses around the country, she stumbled through her first semester—a challenging time made even harder by the coldness of her college's "conflict mediation" process. Her desperation growing, she made a bold decision: She would seek healing in the freedom of the wild, on the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail leading from Mexico to Canada. In this inspiring memoir, Aspen chronicles her journey, a five-month trek that was ambitious, dangerous, and transformative. A nineteen-year-old girl alone and lost, she conquered desolate mountain passes and met rattlesnakes, bears, and fellow desert pilgrims. Exhausted after each thirty-mile day, at times on the verge of starvation, Aspen was forced to confront her numbness, coming to terms with the sexual assault and her parents' disappointing reaction. On the trail and on her own, she found that survival is predicated on persistent self-reliance. She found her strength. After a thousand miles of solitude, she found a man who helped her learn to love and trust again—and heal. Told with elegance and suspense, Girl in the Woods is a beautifully rendered story of eroding emotional and physical boundaries to reveal the truths that lie beyond the edges of the map.
