Mothers are pulled in a million different directions while trying to give their kids fulfilling, productive, joyful childhoods. They mistake activity for happiness, and fill their kids' heads with information when they ought to be feeding their souls instead. This is a book for mothers who yearn to find a balance in their own and their children's lives. Through stories and suggestions, Katrina Kenison shares her insights into how to celebrate life's quiet moments, softly reminding busy mothers to pause and remember the deep sense of well-being that comes from a listening ear, an open heart, and a quiet little space carved out of time.

In ihrem Bestsellerroman ›Der Gott der kleinen Dinge‹ erzählt Arundhati Roy die schillernde Geschichte einer Familie, die an einer verbotenen Liebe zerbricht. Als die 31-jährige Rahel nach vielen Jahren zurückkehrt in ihr Heimatdorf im südindischen Kerala, ist nichts mehr, wie es einst war. Die Konservenfabrik der Familie verfallen, die geliebte Mutter tot, der Zwillingsbruder verstummt. Zurückgeblieben sind nur die Erinnerungen an eine Kindheit am Fluss, an die bewundernde Liebe zu Velutha, dem dunklen Angestellten ihrer Großmutter, und an einen tragischen Tag im Jahr 1969, der alles veränderte. Eine magische Geschichte vor dem Hintergrund der politischen Umbrüche Indiens.

Im August 1992 wurde die Leiche von Chris McCandless im Eis von Alaska gefunden. Wer war dieser junge Mann, und was hatte ihn in die gottverlassene Wildnis getrieben? Jon Krakauer hat sein Leben erforscht, seine Reise in den Tod rekonstruiert und ein traurig-schönes Buch geschrieben über die Sehnsucht, die diesen Mann veranlasste, sämtliche Besitztümer und Errungenschaften der Zivilisation hinter sich zu lassen, um tief in die wilde und einsame Schönheit der Natur einzutauchen. – Verfilmt von Sean Penn mit Emile Hirsch.
