As a minister, I am excited to have access to a Bible Study that hits the mark of truth for women who desire to live within our society with confidence of who they are. Establishing a firm spiritual foundation is vital in our unstable world. A Woman of Substance affords an outline upon which to build that foundation, providing a breadth of Biblical teaching that allows deep spiritual growth. In this practical step-by-step study, a woman's beauty is revealed to be deeper than the surface of her skin. Each reader will be able to glean from these practical teachings through clever analogies of everyday applications that will help build her thoughts and boundaries which will stand against any manner of adversity. She will also be able to identify other women of substance and appreciate how they influence the lives of those around them.' -Laura McCullough Co-Founder, Church for Now Boise, Idaho Author Sheila Eismann has ministered to women for over twenty years through leading various small groups and speaking at women's events.

The definitive biography of Barbara Taylor Bradford, author of twenty-one top-of-the-lists blockbuster bestsellers, starting with A Woman of Substance For the first time ever, take a fascinating look at the remarkable life of Barbara Taylor Bradford. Her first book, A Woman of Substance, is one of the bestselling novels of all time and has made her one of the most successful authors in the world. Yet her rise to fame and fortune was not an easy one. Barbara came from humble beginnings in Yorkshire, the only daughter of a laborer and a nanny. From an early age, her mother Freda had marked her daughter out for glory---at any cost. This drive, ambition, and desire to triumph helped Barbara take the Yorkshire Evening Post and Fleet Street by storm. But her biggest achievement was undeniably A Woman of Substance. The novel's unforgettable heroine, Emma Harte, was a powerful, success-fuelled woman whose rise from kitchen maid to international business woman was an inspiration to women the world over. Emma's life is a testament to Barbara's imagination but here, for the first time, Piers Dudgeon unearths amazing parallels in the lives of Barbara's fictional characters and her real-life family. More remarkable still is that Barbara herself was previously completely unaware of these deeply buried secrets. In this incredible story, fact and fiction exist side by side and art unwittingly imitates life. This is the first time Barbara Taylor Bradford has collaborated on a memoir of her amazing life. Full of revelations, it's as absorbing a read as any one of her bestsellers.

There are aspects of the Proverbs 31 woman in all of us. God had a clear blueprint of what He intended us to be when He created us. He was certain about His creation. His intention was in no way ambiguous. We were created with a clear place and purpose in life. We were endowed with feminine graces that enable us to bring life and sustain it. It is imperative in this day and age that we understand Gods dictates for femininity. If we are swayed by the doctrine of this world we will not only lose our way, but we will abort our destiny. God is waiting for us to take our place in Him by becoming women who He can depend on. We are made of the same stuff as the Proverbs 31 woman. The same God, using the same material to bring us into being, created us. The same substance formed us. It is time for women of God to stop living beneath their privilege. There is no woman like the woman of God, a woman of substance, strong, focused, and filled with the beauty of Christ.

Writing this book came into my mind when I was selected under a special scholarship programme to represent India as its cultural ambassador to japan in 2009. And this was the time when my association with Dr. Kiran Bedi began and i became her 'Dear Student'. The very purpose of connecting with Dr. Bedi was because i wanted to place forward an example in the front of japanese people that how an indian woman can emerge out to be one the most dedicated and phenomenal change agents in the country. Since i was representing India, and indian culture, i felt the need of sharing something about Dr. Kiran Bedi, who had been my guide & inspiration. This book is all about my experience and reminiscences with Dr. Bedi and how with her blessings she inspired me to address a huge gathering of 1500 people at the famous Olympic Stadium in Tokyo, comprising students and teachers from 7 Asian countries and included local japanese school / university students, and delegated from the japanese embassy. There are leaders who show direction to the others, and there are followers who tread the path. When Kiran Bedi became the first indian lady IPS officer way back in 1972, getting on to the pedestal of success was a pipe dream for most indian women. Kiran Bedi's success story inspired many into believing that the fairer sex could achieve what they wanted only if they followed their dream with an iron wall. Siddharth Iyer This Book is a tribute to the legendary Dr. Kiran Bedi from her student who through her story, wants to inspire everyone, especially the youths of this country, that nothing is impossible if one's mission is undertaken with discipline and dedication.

Un íntimo, poderoso e inspirador libro de memorias de la exprimera dama de Estados Unidos. Protagonista de una vida plena y exitosa, Michelle Obama se ha convertido en una de las mujeres más icónicas y cautivadoras de nuestra era. Como primera dama de los Estados Unidos de América, y primera afroamericana en desempeñar esa función, contribuyó a que la Casa Blanca alcanzara sus mayores cotas de apertura y pluralidad de la historia; se erigió en destacada defensora de las mujeres y las niñas en Estados Unidos y en el resto del mundo, introdujo cambios drásticos encaminados a promover una vida saludable y activa en las familias, y acompañó a su esposo cuando el país atravesaba algunos de los momentos más desgarradores de su historia. Por el camino nos enseñó pasos de baile, causó furor en Carpool Karaoke y consiguió criar a dos hijas con los pies en la tierra bajo el implacable escrutinio de los medios de comunicación. En sus memorias, profundamente reflexivas y cautivadoras, Michelle Obama invita al lector a entrar en su mundo relatando las experiencias que han forjado su carácter, desde su infancia en la zona sur de Chicago, hasta los años que vivió en la residencia más famosa del mundo, pasando por su etapa como alta directiva, durante la que tuvo que compaginar la maternidad con la vida profesional. Haciendo gala de una honestidad a toda prueba y de un ingenio vivaz, describe sus logros y decepciones tanto en la esfera pública como en la privada, y narra sin ambages la historia de su vida, con sus propias palabras y en sus propios términos. Cálido, lúcido y revelador, Mi historia es un relato excepcionalmente íntimo de una mujer de gran moralidad y valía, que una vez y otra ha superado todas las expectativas y cuya historia nos inspira a seguir su ejemplo.

Los mejores libros jamás escritos. La más importante de las obras de Eurípides y uno de los trabajos que mejor representan su concepción de lo trágico, muy distinta a la de Sófocles y Esquilo Jasón no solo regresó de la Cólquide con el vellocino de oro, sino que también sedujo a la hija del rey Eetes, Medea. A su vuelta a Yolco, hallan un escenario de traición familiar del que huyen dejando un rastro carmesí. Cuando recalen en Corinto, Medea desplegará una pavorosa venganza contra Jasón al descubrir que pretende a la hija del rey Creonte. Este imperecedero personaje femenino recoge las leyendas que veían a la hechicera como una mujer exótica y salvaje que, por amor, despierta el lado atroz de lo humano. Sus coetáneos decían que Eurípides prefería representar «las cosas como son y no como debieran», y ello quizá sea lo que nos sigue atrayendo de esta princesa extranjera: su cruda realidad, surepulsión natural hacia el perjurio, su asimilación negada, su temible ira, su compromiso con la sangre. La presente edición de Medea cuenta con la versión y la introducción del helenista, escritor y traductor Ramón Irigoyen. Asimismo, los profesores de comunicación audiovisual de la Universidad Pompeu Fabra Jordi Balló y Xavier Pérez han escrito a cuatro manos el epílogo «La venganza triunfal». «Venga, pues, ármate de valor, corazón mío. ¿Por qué aplazar el perpetrar el terrible y necesario mal?»

Una mujer sola y vulnerable, recluida en su casa, ve desde la ventana algo que no debería haber visto. Pero nadie la cree. Una historia poderosa y retorcida. Una protagonista intensa y muy real. Un sofisticado thriller psicológico para el nuevo milenio con la tensa atmósfera y la oscura elegancia de los mejores clásicos del cine negro. No 1 de The New York Times desde hace cuatro semanas. No 1 en Australia y Nueva Zelanda. No sabe si lo ha visto o lo ha imaginado. Anna Fox vive sola, recluida en su casa de Nueva York, sin atreverse a salir. Pasa el día chateando con desconocidos, bebiendo vino (quizá más de la cuenta), mirando películas antiguas, recordando tiempos felices... y espiando a los vecinos. Entonces llegan los Russell al barrio: una pareja y su hijo adolescente. La familia perfecta. Hasta que una noche Anna ve algo desde su ventana que no debería haber visto. Todo su mundo empieza a resquebrajarse y sus propios secretos salen a la luz. ¿Qué es lo que ha visto? ¿Y qué ha imaginado? ¿Quién está en peligro? ¿Y quién está manipulándolo todo? En este thriller absolutamente fascinante, nada ni nadie es lo que parece. Tortuosa, escalofriante, original y conmovedora, La mujer en la ventana es una sofisticada novela de suspense que ya llamó la atención antes de ser publicada. Los derechos de traducción se vendieron a 38 lenguas y Fox empezó a trabajar en su adaptación a la gran pantalla. Debutó en el n.o 1 de la lista de libros más vendidos del New York Times a la semana de salir a la venta -algo que no sucedía con una primera novela de autor desconocido desde hacía doce años- y permaneció allí varias semanas. Le han llovido los elogios de la crítica, de otros escritores y de los lectores norteamericanos; una acogida entusiasta y bien merecida, que se repite a medida que se publica en nuevos países. Críticas: «El primer libro de misterio de 2018 que se va directo a la estratosfera.» The New York Times «La mujer en la ventana garantiza al lector con su ingeniosa trama, prácticamente exenta de trampas, varias horas de amena inquietud y de la mejor diversión.» Ramón de España, El Periódico de Catalunya «Una historia de amor, pérdida y locura hermosamente escrita y trabajada de una manera brillante. Entretenimiento de primera categoría. Un thriller cautivador.» The Washington Post «Comparado con grandes éxitos y etiquetado como el bombazo de 2018, este debut de A.J. Finn cumple con todas esas expectativas.» Library Journal «Hay algo irresistible en esta novela.» USA Today «Una primera novela fascinante y madura.» Library Journal «Inteligente, construida con mimo, centrada en un personaje femenino que se me hizo muy real.» The Globe and Mail «Una novela impredecible y que seduce. El próximo thriller psicológico que todos querremos leer.» Amazon Book Review «Una tensión electrizante, el crujido del papel al ir pasando páginas, mientras un giro de la trama tras otro barre por completo todas las hipótesis que nos hayamos planteado.» Kirkus Reviews «Asombrosa. Extraordinaria. Suspense para el nuevo milenio, con personajes magnéticos, giros sorprendentes, una hermosa escritura.» Gillian Flynn «Uno de esos escasos libros que es imposible dejar de leer. Por momentos excepcional.» Stephen King

Through the Ages, women the world over, have lived under subjugation; women in India have been subjected to various atrocities as well. Nonetheless, despite the odds stacked against them, many have become shining examples for others to follow; not for them the phrase: Frailty thy name is woman. So it is with the characters, whose stories appear on the pages of this book. Their names may be ordinary, but their show of resilience is extraordinary. Kavita, Pushpa, Poonam, Deepa, Charu, Aru and Madhuri, hailing from different cities and different strata of the Indian Society, all run into problems not of their making. From fighting to keep their foetuses alive, to confronting the problem of impotency, to avoiding unwarranted advances, to being involved in murders, to giving birth to a baby who talks about his past, to taking care of a son who has cancer, to sustaining a brain haemorrhage, to having a tumour and a baby growing together, to being looked down upon as a divorcee - they face it all. But, their never-say-die attitude stands them in good stead. They tackle their individual problems and come up triumphant.

Una escritora inglesa llega a Atenas en pleno verano para impartir unos cursos de escritura. Durante su estancia en la capital griega, la gente que va encontrándose decide sincerarse con ella y contarle aspectos importantes sobre sus propias vidas. En el calor sofocante de la ciudad, los diferentes interlocutores confiesan sus amores, sus ambiciones y miedos a la narradora, de quien apenas sabemos que está separada y es madre de dos hijos. De este modo, una secuencia de voces ajenas va trazando un complejo tapiz humano que acabará perfilando por contraste la personalidad de la narradora y los sucesos más decisivos de su vida: el sentimiento de pérdida, la búsqueda de un sentido a la vida familiar, la dificultad de establecer lazos de confianza o el misterio de la creatividad. A contraluz nos habla de cómo construimos nuestra forma de ser a partir de nuestra propia vida y de la de los demás. Publicada en 2014 y aclamada por la crítica, A contraluz confirma a Rachel Cusk como una de las escritoras más brillantes de la literatura contemporánea.
