'Don't let your biggest fears stand in the way of your dreams, even if your biggest dreams happen to be your biggest fears.' That was exactly Bernie Friend's attitude when he ditched medication and group therapy to overcome a very unwanted companion - paranoia. A complete novice to long distance cycling, Bernie confronted many demons on his epic journey - a coastal cycle route which circles 6,000 kilometres of the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Scotland and England.Arm wrestling drunken trawlermen, a geriatric half marathon, Viking bring-and-buy sales, decapitated pirates, burning witches, Shakin' Stevens mega mixes, sea crossing motorways, walking sand giants and remote islands most people can't even be bothered to mark on a map are just some of the secrets coughed up by this adventure.

In Mothering through Precarity Julie A. Wilson and Emily Chivers Yochim explore how working- and middle-class mothers negotiate the difficulties of twenty-first-century mothering through their everyday engagement with digital media. From Facebook and Pinterest to couponing, health, and parenting websites, the women Wilson and Yochim study rely upon online resources and communities for material and emotional support. Feeling responsible for their family's economic security, these women often become "mamapreneurs," running side businesses out of their homes. They also feel the need to provide for their family's happiness, making successful mothering dependent upon economic and emotional labor. Questioning these standards of motherhood, Wilson and Yochim demonstrate that mothers' work is inseparable from digital media as it provides them the means for sustaining their families through such difficulties as health scares, underfunded schools, a weakening social safety net, and job losses.

An orphaned young woman must decide whether to follow her head or her heart in June Francis’s absorbing new Liverpool saga. 1961. Nineteen-year-old Lucia Brookes and her five younger siblings are facing their first Christmas alone since their parents were killed in a car crash. Once, Lucia had dreamed of meeting a man who would love, cherish and provide for her. Now she has lost hope because what man would want to take her on with all her responsibilities? Everything changes when Tim Murphy enters the Liverpool coffee bar where Lucia works, looking for a room to rent. Although she knows of Tim’s troubled past and his recent spell in prison, Lucia can’t help being charmed by the lovable rogue. Ignoring the warnings from her family and friends, she accepts Tim’s offer of a date. But has Tim really changed his ways ... and will his shady past catch up with him?

“Charming, delightful, and enlightening . . .a constant reminder to live your life fully, forgive yourself daily, and love yourself more . . .[a] gem of a memoir” (Amy Ferris, author of Marrying George Clooney: Confessions from a Midlife Crisis). With one bounced check, Nancy Brook’s world collapsed around her. She was charged with a felony and thrown in jail even though her husband had pilfered money out of their business account. Eventually, the charges were dismissed, but her marriage and business were over. A decade later at age forty-three, Nancy thrived as a bank vice president and single parent. Still, she couldn’t get her dating act together. After seven break-ups in seven years, she knew it was time for a change. The cure for her dating blues? A seven-hundred-mile cycling expedition from Bordeaux to the Alps. In France, Nancy wasn’t a corporate manager, a mother, or someone’s girlfriend. She was reborn into a beautiful new world—without responsibilities or expectations. Cycling, Wine, and Men: A Midlife Tour de France reveals an introspective journey through post-divorce dating, single parenthood, and finding happiness and independence as an unattached woman in her prime. Nancy had thought the perfect guy would make life complete. Instead she learned that pursuing passions and fulfilling lifelong dreams created deeper fulfillment than her latest homme parfait. Experience the ride of a lifetime as Under the Tuscan Sun meets Sex and the City. “Zippy read filled with heart and soul . . . Nancy Brook will make you shout ‘Vive la Chemin!’” —Suzy Gershman, author of C’est La Vie “Cycling, Wine, and Men is sure to inspire others to follow their bliss.” —Theo Pauline Nestor, author of How to Sleep Alone in a King-Size Bed

The smell of lavender at a roadside picnic, waiting for the Tour de France to race past. The Pacific Ocean view from the 10,000-foot summit of Hawaii's Haleakalaā volcanic crater (after 5 hours of uphill riding). A fresh Fat Tire ale hitting your lips at the new Belgium brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado. These, and a wide-ranging variety of other experiences, all rooted to a specific location or event, comprise The Cyclist's Bucket List. The book will definitively catalog both the iconic and little known--the accessible and aspirational--sensory and emotional experiences that instill cyclists with a deep passion for the sport. In this book, Ian Dille compiles and showcases the world's quintessential cycling experiences through extensive research and interviews with expert sources, vivid storytelling, stunning photography, and compelling design. The format includes lengthy in-depth descriptions as well as much shorter, easy to consume write-ups, ranging from locations such as Italy and Belgium to Nova Scotia and Texas. The Cyclist's Bucket List will serve as an indispensible, lifelong guide for every cyclist.
