Many of us go through life never realizing that a line of difference stands between Destiny and Fate and because we do not acknowledge this difference we forget to live and resort to merely existing. We walk, and look up and down, right and left but we never look within as we pretend that we do not hurt, we do not doubt, we do not get depressed or loose hope and because we deny the truth we refuse to believe that we can win. This is the story of Destiny: her ups and downs and Fates' unpredictable hand. A story where truth is questioned, failure is prosecuted, and Destiny is allowed to judge. Throughout this book you are carried through many phases of growth both mentally and emotionally (through the use of poetry, philosophy and pros) and are allowed to experience what it means to look life in the eye and say "You belong to me now". It's about a struggle, a struggle we all experience as we try to get to where ever it is we wish to go in life.

When Canadian Alice Munro was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013, she had already declared her resignation from the post of short story writer following the publication of her 2012 collection Dear Life. This present volume offers critical analyses of Alice Munro's complete final short story collection. The book's contributors exercise in-depth, close readings of each individual story and situate them in Munro's lifetime oeuvre, as well as in her work's critical reception to date. Scholars set out to show how complex, irritating, disturbing, and enchanting Munro's stories are, and how often all that matters is to hold life dear - or to hold on for (dear) life.

I've often read books about people who grew up in the country, and have been amazed to find that they all seemed to have been great philosophers. They saw, and felt, a great deal more than I had time to see or think or feel. They seem to have responded poetically to clouds floating in a blue sky, and rhapsodized on the music of summer rain. I often wonder if they had to go two miles in musical summer rain to milk, and to carry the full pail carefully home without getting rain mixed with it, and then walk three miles through stiff clinging mud, to school. I know that often in the heat of noonday, leaning on a hoe, looking across valleys at the mountains, so blue, so close, my only conscious thought was, 'How can I ever get away from here?' Thus begins Belinda Jelliffe's semi-autobiographical novel For Dear Life, first published in 1936. The republication of this novel reintroduces readers to a strong southern writer, an interesting female voice, and a compelling story. This realistic portrayal of life among the rural poor of the early twentieth century shows the struggle of a tough-minded woman who fought her entire life to overcome the obstacles that confronted women and the work

Overcoming infidelity transforms first-time author into an influential woman In ‘For Dear Life,' Sarah Tauber openly shares an intimate and encouraging look into her life CALIFORNIA – Oprah Winfrey. J.K. Rowling. Vera Wang. Marilyn Monroe. What do these successful and influential women have in common? They are women who failed before they succeeded. While the women who have achieved such celebrated status are few, those who have gone through similar inspiring life transformations abound; and among them is Sarah Tauber, the author who debuted with a genuine revelation in "For Dear Life." For the first time, Sarah unveils the most intimate, and probably the most challenging, phase of her life. "For Dear Life" recounts the story of a young American woman who lived for two years during the 1970's with her husband and their young child in Tehran, Iran. With a workaholic husband having little time or attention for his bride, she became involved with an Iranian man. Although infidelity may be taboo, it is a timeless issue that both men and women have struggled with. Sarah's affair was something many women may have experienced. Yet, it was Sarah's humble admission and firm decision to address her past that truly healed, defined and transformed her into a credible example for women today. Writing a story that most of her family and friends were unaware of was both painful and cathartic. Today, it is this same story that offers women the gift of hope and encouragement. Raw, real and radically uplifting, "For Dear Life" is a powerful story that runs the gamut of human emotion – happiness, sadness, fear, love, agony, remorse and eventual joy. Sarah may not be as influential as Oprah, Rowling, Vera or Marilyn, but the humility and the great strength of character that she shares with these women, as evidenced in her story, will truly earn her a special, influential place in reader's hearts. "The choices you make in life have consequences, some ripple out to encompass other lives. You can overcome the bad choices, make better ones, and ultimately be happy again," says Sarah, speaking encouragingly to anyone who has walked that path.

Empowering, enchanting, entertaining and absolutely unbelievable! Simply ... REAL. The best stories are written by Life itself - and Noah van Goa writes them down. Traveling for months through Europe without touching any money, getting assaulted with a knife by a crazy woman in Wales, then arrested for a night in England, or having a drunk-driver baastard break all of his bones at once - he's never without a smile! That's how you could summarize a tiny part of Noah's Travels, but would totally forget about all the unbelievably magical and supernatural wonders that Life keeps shoving into his face. Because that's what this book is about: How a struggling artist and backpacker has to face countless bizarre challenges on his way through this wondrous world, stays on course towards happiness despite sailing through rough waters, and finally gets blessed with pure Magick. ABER ACHTUNG! This book will drastically change the way you look at Life and should be consumed with care if you give too many fucks about the wrong shit. a MUST-READ for every adventurer, backpacker, and everybody different. And it would definitely send a smiling tear down the author's cheek when his art has touched your heart. Danke!
