Split at the Root: A Memoir of Love and Lost Identity

by Catana Tully

In this dramatic and beautifully written memoir, the author explores questions of race, adoption and identity, not as the professor of ethnic studies that she became, but as the black child of German settlers in Guatemala, who called her their “little Moor.” Her journey into investigating the mystery of how these White foreigners became her parents begins when she reluctantly considered joining an African-American organization at the U.S. College where she taught. She realized it was not just her foreign accent that alienated her from Blacks. Under layers of privilege (private schools, international travel, the life of a fashion model and actress in Europe) she discovered that her most important story is one of disinheritance.

The author’s determination to find out who her mother and father really were, and why she was taken from them, tests the love of her White husband and their son, leads her to embrace and then reject the charismatic man she believes to be her biological father, and takes her to the jungles of Guatemala to find a family that has kept her memory alive as legend. In the book’s shocking ending, she learns truths about her mother, and the callous disrespect committed long ago against mother and child in the name of love.

You’re about to discover what you need to know to properly breastfeed your baby in an easy to understand format. This book was written to help all those new mothers or expectant new mothers understand the proper techniques of breastfeeding. Breastfeeding provides protection from illness – it is a proven fact that breast fed babies have a lower risk of developing diseases and conditions such as eye and ear infections, respiratory problems such as asthma, urinary tract infections, and SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome); as well as some diseases that may occur later in life such as diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), heart diseases, gastroenteritis, and leukemia. Unlike formula milk, breast milk is somewhat customized to cater to your baby’s needs and can adjust to hold different properties based on what your baby may need for the time being. Studies have shown that children who were breastfed for longer have shown to have a better vocabulary by age 5 and that premature babies who are breastfed tend to catch up to their peers by 18 months as opposed to premature babies who are not breast fed. Lactation experts have also stated that the emotional bond between mother and child during breast feeding adds to the emotional quotient and increase brain power. The list goes on and on of the benefits of breastfeeding. If you are reading this you are considering breastfeeding and I want to assure you that this book is a step in the right direction. It will answer all the concerns you may have regarding breastfeeding. I wish you all the success in the world as you undertake the most rewarding job on the planet. Remember… you can become very good at breastfeeding your newborn and this book will help you do it!

The Healthy Lifestyle

by Lilian Nickson

Our world is so enamored of busyness, our culture places such a high value on multitasking that nobody is ever going to tell you to put silence and stillness on your “to do” list for the day. If we listen to the world and its agenda for us to work, hurry and succeed, we will find ourselves empty, unsatisfied and disconnected from our very own selves. When you want to change your life, you have to think care, love, health and strength among others. This precious thought is lost when you don’t have time or you don’t make time to uplift your habits. As you read this book, ask yourself, “what habit do I need to add to my “to do” list concerning my lifestyle?”

Every healthy routine we adapt yields its tribute of delight. Every change we make corresponds to and authorizes new state of mind, from breathless hopelessness to grimmest sunshine in the midday. It is therefore necessary to uplift our lifestyle. Our daily habits don’t have to be a long hard cognitive process. Even on a minor scale, personal goals are not hard to accomplish with the right information and support. We just have to be vigilant in undertaking the proper habits that would ensure good health.

This book will discuss some of the ways we can practice a lifestyle that attempts to make our relationships with others healthier, a lifestyle that involves caring for others/our loved ones, and maintaining proper hygiene and healthy choices! It recommends habits such as using natural alternative treatments like herbs to boost immunity, spending time with family or spouse to bring relaxation and relieve from routine tension, commitment and faithfulness, strengthening your health by appropriately following health choices like flossing teeth, washing hands and more!
