St. Peter's Square, Rome. White smoke signals that a new Pope has been chosen. Is it possible that the new Pope...is a woman?The world is watching as massive crowds gather in Rome, waiting for news of a new pope, one who promises to be unlike any other in history. It's a turning point that may change the Church forever. Some followers are ecstatic that the movement reinvigorating the Church is about to reach the Vatican, but the leading candidate has made a legion of powerful enemies who aren't afraid to kill for their cause.

I did not know what I was expecting in this book, it's one woman's life which is truly tragic, had me in tears at times and her belief in GOD and losing that, which after what she goes through who wouldn't, then her life turns for a brighter future with the help of her GOD, The Pope and her best friend. I found this book truly riveting, Therese Plummer's narration is just fantastic she truly pulls you into the story.

An affair: It can rob a couple of their relationship, their happiness, their very identity. And yet this extremely common human experience is so poorly understood. Adultery has existed since marriage was invented, and so, too, the prohibition against it - in fact it has a tenacity that marriage can only envy. Iconic couples' therapist and best-selling author of Mating in Captivity Esther Perel returns with a groundbreaking and provocative look at infidelity, arguing for a more nuanced and less judgmental conversation about our transgressions.

I found this book absolutely engrossing the stories the people, what lead to the affair, the pain the deception, anger everything that goes with being lied too to loss of faith and trust.I think everyone can see some resemblance to their own situations & how we feel at times but not all act on these. Little quotes at the beginning of each chapter that are though provoking and advise to not always judge as they're are always two sides, Thoughtful and full of insight.

I found this book quite funny, I chuckled to myself through each chapter as I could relate to it or had friends who had some of these traits. It basicalky instructs you how to manage things in your life and put thing on paper. But it really all comes down to one thing we are the only person who can get our sh*t together.

What would it take to prove the existence of God? And what would be the consequences? These questions and their answers lie at the heart of Absolute Proof, an international thriller from best-selling author Peter James. The false faith of a billionaire evangelist, the life’s work of a famous atheist, and the credibility of each of the world’s major religions are all under threat. If Ross Hunter can survive long enough to present the evidence...
