Love Arrives in Pieces
A witty but poignant read that will give you a new perspective on brokenness, this sequel to All’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes can be read on its own or as a companion to All’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes.

The message of the story is about healing. It’s about learning to lean on God to get you through the hard times and help you pick up the pieces of what you think is broken.

Twisted Innocence

Van New York Times-topverkoperskrywer Karen Kingsbury kom ’n splinternuwe Baxterfamilie-roman oor ’n geliefde skoolhoof wat ’n Bybelstudieklub begin om die lewens van sy sukkelende leerlinge te verbeter. Dit het egter tot gevolg dat hy die nasionale fokus van ’n omstrede regsgeding word.

Millie Malan se rustige lewe op Dreunbaai verander onherroeplik wanneer haar ouma Hetta sterf en sy by die lees van die testament hoor sy moet haar erfporsie deel met ’n vrou van wie sy nog nooit eens gehoor het nie – Cornelia Krynauw.

Liefde Maak Heel
Sal Isabelle in die laaste boek in die Isa-trilogie leer om God se geskenk na waarde te ag en bevryding vind?

In Liefde maak heel, die laaste aflewering van Helena Hugo se trilogie oor Isa, leer Isa dat sy net bevry kan word as sy God se geskenk vir die mensdom na waarde ag en verstaan wat in sy Vaderhart gebeur toe Hy besluit het om sy Seun vir haar sondes te gee. Die begrip “vergifnis” word in die Bybelstudieklas uitgepluis, maar dis moeilik om dit in die werklike lewe toe te pas. Isa word deur haar verlede beheer en sy kom nie sover om vrede te maak nie.
