When 26-year-old Melissa agreed to a blind date with good-looking photographer Bruce, she had already gone through more than most of us do in a lifetime--cheating death even before her first birthday, living with serious chronic illness, and then going through a family tragedy that would change everything. A small-town girl, adopted at birth, she had moved to LA and was searching for where she fit in the world and her purpose in life. On that blind date, Bruce and Melissa fell deeply, instantly in love. But their relationship would face many tests: Melissa fought one grave medical problem after another, while the demons of Bruce's past threatened their future together. Yet just when their love triumphed over the challenges, by a turn of fate, now Bruce faced a life-threatening health crisis. And Melissa realized she finally knew her life's purpose: to be there by his side, every step of the way. Turn of Fate takes the reader on a journey from a simpler time in America, to Hollywood and the LA music scene of the nineties, to the intimate moments between two people in love facing the world together. It's a story of adversity and survival--but far more than that, it's a story about life.

A child survivor, a child of survivors and a grandchild of a survivor, Sidney Zoltak is all these things. His story about a family that struggled and endured, the generosity of those who saved them against all odds, and a vow never to forget is a remarkable journey through the Holocaust into a rich and full life.

But when war ends, there is no going back. We follow the Zoltak family, amazingly intact, as they make their way to Italy where young Sidney encounters a generosity of spirit that helps to heal war's wounds and prepares him for life in Canada.

On Boxing day 2004, Rob, Paul, Matty and Rosie Forkan tragically lost their parents in the Boxing Day Tsunami that devastated Sri Lanka. Aged from 8 to 17, they subsequently faced a harrowing and solitary 200km trek across the decimated country to get home to safety. The bravery, ingenuity and resilience they displayed was the result of their unusual upbringing. Taken out of school at a young age, they received an unconventional and global education, learning independence and resourcefulness whilst carrying out voluntary work for charities in India alongside their parents. In the decade since the tsunami, Rob and Paul have achieved an incredible feat. They have created a multinational brand, Gandy's Flip Flops, based in the front room of their rented flat and endorsed by entrepreneurs including Richard Branson, and set up Orphans for Orphans, a charitable organization that uses 10% of the profits to support children deprived of education, nutrition and medication. This is a heartbreaking, engaging but ultimately uplifting journey from the streets of Sri Lanka to the boardrooms of London, Downing Street and beyond as told by two inspirational survivors.
