Memoir/Family – Wounded Warrior, Wounded Wife

wounded-warrior-wounded-wifeWounded Warrior, Wounded Wife
Not Just Surviving But Thriving
By Barbara K. McNally
Publisher: Koehler Books
Published: October 2016
ISBN: 978-1633932876
ASIN: B01LXU8VLK
Pages: 226
Genre: Memoir, Family, Military Families

Imagine sending your spouse to war with a heavy heart, then receiving a life-shattering phone call telling you he’s been badly injured. Your beloved returns to your arms, but changed, broken, angry, conflicted, and in need of around-the-clock care. What do you do?

Meet the women who drew upon their inner resilience and prevailed. Their vivid personal accounts provide inspiration to those who face daunting challenges, and offer a path forward. Each one of these brave, strong military spouses shares her personal tale of reuniting, recovering, and rebuilding with her catastrophically wounded warrior.

Wounded Warrior, Wounded Wife offers an intimate look into the chaotic and demanding lives of military spouses as they adjust to living with injured combat veterans. These women are thrust into caretaker roles for service members who return home with amputated limbs, brain injuries, burns, and disabilities, with virtually no support or training. Posttraumatic stress tears their families apart, and they must wrestle with huge, imposing questions: Does he still love me? Must I sacrifice my career forever? How will this affect my kids, my sex life, my happiness?

Wounded Warrior, Wounded Wife reveals the innermost thoughts of women who faced these challenges and prevailed–to not just survive, but thrive.

Family Life/Memoir – Tales of My Large, Loud, Spiritual Family

Tales of My Large, Loud, Spiritual FamilyTales of My Large, Loud, Spiritual Family
By Katherine Agranovich, Ph.D.
Publisher: KAA Publishing, Inc
ISBN: 978-0991245802
ASIN: B00HHI9J0U
Pages: 184
Genre: Non-Fiction, Family Life, Inspirational, Memoir

When Katherine Agranovich hypnotizes her daughter Jessica to pass a math quiz, the teenager reports seeing two angels who give her sage advice. With that, the gates of consciousness fly open and the realm of spirit bursts through, propelling the Agranovich clan on a rollercoaster ride full of mystical visions, spiritual insights and shocking premonitions.

But are they ready?

This book takes readers inside the large, loud Agranovich household, where otherworldly encounters are accepted like grades and shoe sizes, and homework is often a cosmic lesson. Each day takes the family on a quirky spiritual adventure where “weird, crazy and abnormal” become the norm. Their young son is startled awake by a headless man, their daughter banishes obnoxious ghosts from her grandparents’ home and is whisked into the future to her wedding day.

Even Katherine’s non-psychic husband, Felix, betrayed by his business partner, meets an astral financial advisor who offers sound advice in the midst of an economic crisis.

But in order to embrace their children’s spirituality, Felix and Katherine, atheist Jewish refugees from Soviet Russia, have to undergo profound spiritual transformation themselves. Tales of My Large, Loud, Spiritual Family offers hope, courage and inspiration to parents committed to raising their children as spiritual beings.

The stories in this book will mystify you, enchant you, and change your view of family dynamics forever.
