NATIONAL JEWISH BOOK AWARDS FINALIST • “Part personal quest, part testament, and all thoughtfully, compassionately written.”—The Washington Post “Esther Safran Foer is a force of nature: a leader of the Jewish people, the matriarch of America’s leading literary family, an eloquent defender of the proposition that memory matters. And now, a riveting memoirist.”—Jeffrey Goldberg, editor in chief of The Atlantic NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR Esther Safran Foer grew up in a home where the past was too terrible to speak of. The child of parents who were each the sole survivors of their respective families, for Esther the Holocaust loomed in the backdrop of daily life, felt but never discussed. The result was a childhood marked by painful silences and continued tragedy. Even as she built a successful career, married, and raised three children, Esther always felt herself searching. So when Esther’s mother casually mentions an astonishing revelation—that her father had a previous wife and daughter, both killed in the Holocaust—Esther resolves to find out who they were, and how her father survived. Armed with only a black-and-white photo and a hand-drawn map, she travels to Ukraine, determined to find the shtetl where her father hid during the war. What she finds reshapes her identity and gives her the opportunity to finally mourn. I Want You to Know We’re Still Here is the poignant and deeply moving story not only of Esther’s journey but of four generations living in the shadow of the Holocaust. They are four generations of survivors, storytellers, and memory keepers, determined not just to keep the past alive but to imbue the present with life and more life.

Can you ever get over the loss of a 'soulmate'/loved one? By: Dorothy Farley Co-Author, (3) 5-Star Rated Books Listen, I'm Still Here – Part I I'm Always Here – Part II Everlasting "Love" – That Is – Part III The Continuation of Love from the Other Side Spirituality – Life After Death MY TRUTH: NO! NOT REALLY, AND CERTAINLY 'NOT COMPLETELY'! HOWEVER, with the passing of time (for me, now seven years since the transition of my beloved husband and soulmate, Jack Farley) one's understanding deepens, and the gradual 'acceptance' that we are all spirit beings with eternal life awakens within us, and "everything is as it should be," as Jack expresses from heaven. There is no ending at death – for life, living and learning continue on and on, in another dimension. Real growth and the reason for our being here on this Earth begins to shine forth for us and reveals life's profound meaning, and why we are here. We see more clearly the only two emotions, 'FEAR' or 'LOVE'. We begin opening our heart to more LOVE – LOVE for everything around us, LOVE for everyone we meet, for everything we see and do – and for ourselves. Let's not forget ourselves. We remember: "LOVE is all there is," affirmed by Jack. Staying in the LOVE VIBRATION is what I have learned to do, and this is where I can reach and connect with the responsive vibration of my beloved husband. Anyone can make this conversational connection – it is a matter of choice – our choice for our loved ones are always here around us in many forms; it is up to us to open our heart to the deepest, most pure LOVE, and in so doing elevate our vibration to reaching and hearing them. This is possible, if we make the choice and BELIEVE we can. Remember, loved ones are always 'living' in spirit form – for it is the perfection of our soul that we are seeking. Even when these TRUTHS are known, it is all easier said than done, but becomes more permanently possible as time goes by, and the light of a new future shines forth.

When it comes to relationships, there exist four states: you're either trying to get in one, out of one, maintain one, or get over one.

AMERICAN SHERO is next wave feminism, humor, politically incorrect, and an honest look at the current state of young love in America.

Highly imaginative, with ingenious "How To" self-help manuals built into its narrative, AMERICAN SHERO is one very fresh, original, edgy, cinematic, spiritual, and definitely unprecedented body of work.

Still Here: Memoirs of Trauma, Illness and Loss explores the history, ethics, and cross-cultural range of memoirs focusing on illness, death, loss, displacement, and other experiences of trauma. From Walt Whitman’s Civil War diaries to kitchen table survivor-to-survivor storytelling following Hurricane Katrina, from social media posts from a refugee detention centre, to poetry by exiles fleeing war zones, the collection investigates trauma memoir writing as healing, as documentation of suffering and disability, and as political activism. Editors Bunty Avieson, Fiona Giles and Sue Joseph have brought together this scholarly collection as a sequel to their earlier Mediating Memory (Routledge 2018), providing a closer look at the specific concerns of trauma memoir, including conflict and intergenerational trauma; the therapeutic potential and risks of trauma life writing; its ethical challenges; and trauma memoir giving voice to minority experiences.
