It’s handy having a dad who can fix just about anything. A young girl believes her father is the king of fixing things. But following the death of her mother, she discovers that broken hearts are not as easy to repair as damaged toys and cracked teapots. Together, she and her father find a way to glue back the pieces of her lives. The Fix-It Man is a poignant picture book that explores how a child can cope with the loss of a parent (in this case, the young girl’s mother). Repairing damaged emotions is not as straightforward as gluing a broken kite back together or sewing up a torn toy. And grief affects all members of a family, with each responding in their own way to the loss. By sticking with her father, the young girl is able to strengthen her resilience and ability to cope with one of life’s harshest experiences. The author was encouraged to seek publication for this story after receiving the endorsement of several grief counsellors who work with children and who recognised the need for a book such as this.

The right man for the job... California teacher Zach Wainwright doesn't know a socket wrench from needle-nosed pliers, but landing a job as a live-in handyman for a widow is the answer to his prayers. He's a smart man. Surely he can handle the small maintenance needs of a little old lady in exchange for a peaceful, inexpensive room while he's in Illinois working on his doctorate. Widowed Diana Thatcher's struggling with a creaky old house and two boisterous daughters aged twelve and thirteen. An elderly scholar who can pay rent and make minor home repairs sounds perfect until she discovers he's a bronzed Adonis. His handyman skills are questionable, but he shows a talent for mending broken hearts. Unfortunately, her family doesn't need a temporary patch. They need a man who can build a foundation for the future. Note: Previously published by Harlequin in 1986, this Vintage VLT edition has been significantly re-edited and updated.

In the vein of #Girlboss and Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office, discover how to thrive at work from the head of the Global Innovation Coalition for Change at UN Women with this “passionate, practical roadmap for addressing inequality and finally making our workplaces work for women” (Arianna Huffington). For years, we’ve been telling women that in order to succeed at work, they have to change themselves first—lean in, negotiate like a man, don’t act too nice or you’ll never get the corner office. But after sixteen years working with major Fortune 500 companies as a gender equality expert, Michelle King has realized one simple truth—the tired advice of fixing women doesn’t fix anything. The truth is that workplaces are gendered; they were designed by men for men. Because of this, most organizations unconsciously carry the idea of an “ideal worker,” typically a straight, white man who doesn’t have to juggle work and family commitments. Based on King’s research and exclusive interviews with major companies and thought leaders, The Fix reveals why denying the fact that women are held back just because they are women—what she calls gender denial—is the biggest obstacle holding women back at work and outlines the hidden sexism and invisible barriers women encounter at work every day. Women who speak up are seen as pushy. Women who ask for a raise are seen as difficult. Women who spend hours networking don’t get the same career benefits as men do. Because women don’t look like the ideal worker and can’t behave like the ideal worker, they are passed over for promotions, paid less, and pushed out of the workforce, not because they aren’t good enough, but because they aren’t men. In this fascinating and empowering book, King outlines the invisible barriers that hold women back at all stages of their careers, and provides readers with a clear set of takeaways to thrive despite the sexist workplace, as they fight for change from within. Gender equality is not about women, and it is not about men—it is about making workplaces work for everyone. Together, we can fix work, not women.

Mr. Fix It Man was influenced by my youngest grandson who was always trying to fix everybody’s problems. He just couldn’t fix his own. He could see yours, yet he could not recognize when he had one. No matter how many people tried to help him, they could not get through because he saw himself as the one to fix everyone else’s problems. When he came to the end of himself, there was only one person who could lift his burdens and really fix everything. He had to cast his burdens on Him to be free. I believe there is a Mr. or Mrs. Fix it person in all of us, and we all need the one who can carry our burdens (Mathew 11:28–30).

'Everything has a story, ' Lunden explained. 'In fact, most things have many stories. In order to fix something properly, one needs to know more about it than simply what is broken. You need to know its story. It sounds strange, but to fix something, I mean really fix something, involves a lot more than mechanics or engineering. This toaster of yours has quite a lot to say, and, with a little fixing, quite a few more stories yet to gather.' Taconic New York is a sleepy town. In fact, it's practically dead. Tommy Jameson wonders what has happened to 'his town.' One day, an odd little man opens Ed's Fix-It Shop. Ed Lunden, its mysterious owner, seems able to fix everything even a hopelessly cracked baseball bat is returned to its owner 'better than new' and fit for play. Can this strange man fix only things? Do his abilities extend to people and perhaps even the whole 'broken' town? Find out in The Fix-It Shop: A Story of Music, Magic, a Baseball Bat, and a Toaster.

Unique, Biblical Take on God's Supernatural Blessing of Favor God's children have access to something amazing, says Pastor Duane Vander Klok, but many of us are living without it. What is it? It is God's favor--the "I'm for you!" declaration of God, his poured-out goodness. This favor is the special gifting that leads to dramatic change in the believer's life--and also blesses others. In this newly repackaged edition, Pastor Duane teaches how easy it is to enjoy the supernatural favor of God. Through biblical examples and powerful personal experience, he shows that God wants his people to live in his favor every single day. Once we are set free to receive God's goodness, we can watch with anticipation as his many promises for our lives come true.

Amos Decker, David Baldacci's unique special agent, who suffered a head injury that resulted in giving him the gift of a remarkable memory takes on another case in The Fix. Walter Dabney is a family man. A loving husband and the father of four grown daughters, he’s built a life many would be proud of. But then the unthinkable happens. Standing outside the FBI Headquarters in Washington, DC, Dabney shoots school teacher Anne Berkshire in cold blood before turning the gun on himself. One of the many witnesses is Amos Decker; a man who forgets nothing and sees what most miss. Baffled by what appears to be a seemingly senseless and random killing, Decker is thrust into the investigation to determine what drove this family man to pull the trigger. As part of an FBI special task force, Decker and the team delve into the lives of Dabney and Berkshire to find a connection that doesn’t seem to exist. What they do find are secrets that stretch back a lifetime and reveal a current plot of impending destruction that will send the world reeling, placing Decker and his team squarely in the crosshairs.
