            You made me very bad, Connor. And I am so glad. Ana and Connor have been having an affair for three years. In hotel rooms and coffee shops, swiftly deleted texts and briefly snatched weekends, they have built a world with none but the two of them in it. But then the unimaginable ...happens, and Ana finds herself alone, trapped inside her secret. How can we lose someone the world never knew was ours? How do we grieve for something no one else can ever find out? In her desperate bid for answers, Ana seeks out the shadowy figure who has always stood just beyond her reach - Connor's wife Rebecca. Peeling away the layers of two overlapping marriages, Here is the Beehive is a devastating excavation of parenthood, betrayal and loss.

            When Anne Sexton took her own life in October 1974, she left behind a body of work which had already, in less than two decades of writing, won her the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, established her as one of the foremost voices of her generation, and shocked America by breaking multi...ple taboos of subject matter, from insanity, depression and addiction to menstruation, adultery and the figure of the witch. Sexton's name is legendary. Her poetry is read around the world, translated into over thirty languages, and in her own country remains a touchstone for poets and readers looking for a rawness of perception, a vitality of expression, and a confessional frankness of sharing. Yet, incredibly, there has been no new UK edition of her work for decades. In Mercies, readers are provided with a gorgeously adroit new selection from the writings of this musical, revelatory, sometimes joyous, often bracing and always astonishing natural phenomenon of a poet.

            Despite modern technology, many people in today's world find 'waiting' to be a challenge. "Have patience!" or "Stop fretting!" Sound familiar? Join Barbara Harry in discovering the True Source of waiting in stillness and rest through this contemplative parable. Come w...ait with me... take your time. "My writings have come out of a journey of reflection and prayer. It's a book of scripture and poems written over a number of years as God dealt with heart issues on my own personal journey. The reflective writing unleashed in that time of burn-out has been a major part of the healing process. I began to understand the Creator of the universe had wired me with many creative gifts to express God's heart including as His pen. In my parables I'm also trying to allow room for God to speak to people. A viewer has a way of interpreting a painting differently to the painter. I'm painting pictures with words."
