Grace was trying to recover from being left at the altar by the man who had been her best friend since grade school. The fact that Corey had ditched her for some bimbo he’d met during his bachelor party wasn’t even the worst thing that had happened to her. No, the worst part was that she’d gone on her honeymoon alone, had a one-night stand with a sexy bartender, and nine months later had ended up with the surprise of her life. Alan was right where he wanted to be—in the thick of singlehood. He loved his job as a bartender at The Boardwalk Bar and Grill, and he finally had money to spare. He enjoyed spending his days on the gulf and his nights with a new lady. Life was great. That is, until Grace returns. He’d had a fling with her over a year ago and had fallen hard and fast for the blonde. But she’d returned home and had taken the last shred of hope for a better life along with her.

HighTide Theatre Festival was founded in 2006 and has since become one of the most prolific homes of new writing. It has been described by the Telegraph as "one of the little gems of the artistic calendar in Britain" and by the Daily Mail as "famous for championing emerging playwrights and contemporary theatre". 2016 marks ten years of HighTide, during which time numerous emerging playwrights and new plays have shot to prominence. This anniversary volume brings together four of the key plays that have come out of HighTide Theatre Festival's programme during this time: Ditch by Beth Steel is a clear-eyed look at how we might behave when the conveniences of our civilisation are taken away, and a frightening vision of a future that could all too easily be ours. peddling by Harry Melling is a poetic monologue about a young homeless man, which confronts whether it's a good thing to turn a blind eye and let people get on with their lives, or whether that's exactly how people fall through the cracks. The Big Meal by American writer Dan LeFranc is a deeply comic and touching drama that looks at love, marriage, raising children and the general onslaught of life. Lampedusa by Anders Lustgarten follows the day-to-day life of those whose job it is to enforce our harsh new rules on immigration: an Italian coastguard and a payday lender from Leeds. All now established in their own right, these four plays demonstrate HighTide's extraordinary role in identifying and nurturing writers tackling some of the biggest issues of today. The volume was published to coincide with HighTide's 10th annual festival in September 2016 and features an introduction by HighTide Artistic Director, Steven Atkinson.

Young, vivacious Joanna Bennett desperately wishes to be captain of her own lobstering boat, but despite being the favored daughter of Bennett’s Island’s founding family, she is still just a girl in the eyes of the community, and a girl living off the coast of Maine in the early 20th century is expected to mind the kitchen, not tend to pot buoys. While quietly struggling to find her place on insular Bennett’s Island, one where she could let her bold and opinionated nature shine without shaming her family, Joanna instead finds love when she meets a witty stranger with a sparkling smile just off the mailboat. One whirlwind courtship and wedding later, Joanna finds herself master of her own house, and every aspect of her beloved island seems to reflect her joy. But when the luster begins to wear off and her husband’s dark secrets slowly reveal themselves, Joanna must draw on her determination, resilience, and resourcefulness to keep her family together. This evocative coming-of-age story transports readers to the beautiful and rugged Maine coast, where families must eke their livelihoods from the tempestuous ocean but in return they’re afforded the daily splendor and simple pleasures of island life.

Dive into THE WHITSTABLE HIGH TIDE SWIMMING CLUB - the irresistible, feel-good novel from Katie May. Join Debs and Maisie and the high tide swimmers as they make waves in life, love and friendship. Only the truly devoted manage to swim every day at Whitstable, because the sea's only deep enough at high tide. So when Deb (ageing bikini, sunglasses) and Maisie (black wetsuit, swimming shoes, goggles) keep meeting on Reeves Beach, they strike up an unlikely friendship based on their love of swimming and their recent divorces. They swim early in the morning and late at night; through sea-fogs, rain and glorious sunny days. Soon, they are joined by other high tide swimmers, each with a crisis of their own to weather. Ann, a bossy organiser, is caring for her elderly mother at home; Julie has somehow (although she's not quite sure how) managed to produce three children under school age; and Chloe, a bright, brittle girl of fifteen, finds calmness in the water. Quiet, anxious Bill is initially thought to be a peeping Tom, before being welcomed into the heart of the club. When the swimmers discover plans for their beach to be paved over for a leisure complex, they find a higher purpose that bonds them together, and exposes their fragile worlds to public scrutiny. THE WHITSTABLE HIGH TIDE SWIMMING CLUB is a book about the power of female friendship, that never loses sight of the complicated truths behind the lives of women who - from the outside - seem to take everything in their stride. It's also a song to the author's home town of Whitstable, where the sea is smooth, the shingle is painful on bare feet, and the air is full of possibilities.

In May of 1986, Drew Jackson reflects on the steps-or, more likely, the missteps-that have brought him to this point in his life. He had it all: a successful international shipping company serving the offshore drilling and exploration industry, corporate jets, friendships with the rich and famous, a big house, and a trophy wife. But it's all about to end. High Tide shows one family's resolve, stamina, and tenacity in developing one of America's most important industries. The story of this visionary generation will engage those who believe in courage, in living their dreams, and in self-determination-to look the unknown in the face and not flinch. "Maxine Domino has written a richly textured, sweepingly panoramic novel that chronicles the heady growth of the oil industry in mid-twentieth century America through the story of one gifted ambitious man. His story is told with the warmth and wisdom of his rural Texas roots. After following my husband for years around the oil fields of southern Louisiana, Nigeria, and Singapore, I am impressed with the authenticity of the novel. Domino has mastered the use of the telling detail and natural dialogue. The story is memorable and the characters finely drawn, a satisfying reading experience." -Barbara Faye Munson, PhD

Acorns delineates the future of humanity as a reunification of intellect with the Deep Self. Having chosen to focus upon ego (established securely by the time of Christ), much more beta brain wave development will destroy our species and others, which process has already begun. We create our own realities through beliefs, intents and desires and we were in and out of probabilities constantly. Feelings follow beliefs, not the other way around.
