'Refreshingly honest [...] a highly enjoyable, fascinating read.' Horse and Hound "To ride into that arena, next to a sea of British flags and hear the roar of clapping and cheering, was so exciting. It's a sound I will never, ever forget." Charlotte Dujardin and her charismatic horse Valegro burst onto the international sports scene with their record-breaking performance at the London, 2012 Olympics. The world was captivated by the young woman with the dazzling smile and her dancing horse. But no one quite knew what it took to get there, nor how hard the path to success would be – until now. Dujardin began riding horses at the age of two, but dressage was firmly the domain of the wealthy, not the life of a girl from a middle-class family. Her parents sacrificed all and with a undeterred focus, Charlotte left school at 16 to follow her dream. When she was invited to be a groom for the British Olympian Carl Hester, she began to ride Valegro, a dark bay gelding and an unbreakable bond was formed. This is their incredible story.

When his mother was sold away, Hiram was robbed of all memory of her—but was gifted with a mysterious power. Years later, when Hiram almost drowns in a river, that same power saves his life. This brush with death births an urgency in Hiram and a daring scheme: to escape from the only home he’s ever known. So begins an unexpected journey that takes Hiram from the corrupt grandeur of Virginia’s proud plantations to desperate guerrilla cells in the wilderness, from the coffin of the Deep South to dangerously idealistic movements in the North. Even as he’s enlisted in the underground war between slavers and the enslaved, Hiram’s resolve to rescue the family he left behind endures. This is the dramatic story of an atrocity inflicted on generations of women, men, and children—the violent and capricious separation of families—and the war they waged to simply make lives with the people they loved.

America’s most celebrated contemporary ballerina explores her life on stage and off as a star at the New York City Ballet in this provocative and lyrical memoir that blends the honest, intimate style of the classic Mozart in the Jungle with the artistic sweep of Apollo’s Angels. Upon her retirement with New York’s premier ballet company, numerous media outlets lavished praise on Wendy Whelan. the New York Times hailed her as “among that rare breed of artists who have touched the public in a way that transcends the fashions that can make ballerinas (or artists or actors) sensations for a season.” In assessing her legacy, Vanity Fair raved, “Wendy Whelan’s career at New York City Ballet . . . has been exemplary. She’s left unique marks on works created by some of the best choreographers in the business.” But the numerous tributes overlooked the under lying story behind her departure. “In ballet, if you’re over 40, you’re a dinosaur,” Whelan starkly makes clear. In this deeply felt and frank memoir, she wrestles with the realities of aging in an art form defined by youth and beauty, and explores themes of gender, sexuality and sexism. Whelan eloquently appraises her storied career, from performing as a mouse in the Nutcracker at age eight with her hometown Louisville Ballet to her apprenticeship with NYCB; becoming a soloist and principal dancer to her creative achievements post-ballet. She also offers a provocative account of the life a working ballerina—the drama, the bone aching work, and the thrill of the applause. With crackling humor and refreshing sincerity, Whelan celebrates the industry’s joys, exposes its excesses, and lays bare the realities little known to aficionados and even the media. Ultimately, hers is a universal story of sacrifice, determination, and struggle—how a gifted, ambitious woman in a world run by powerful men made her own way—and learning to reinvent and red

From the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Me Before You" and "One Plus One," in an earlier work available in the U.S. for the first time, a surprising and moving romance set in an old-fashioned seaside town on the verge of unwelcome change Liza McCullen will never fully escape her past. But the unspoiled beaches and tight-knit community of Silver Bay offer the freedom and safety she craves--if not for herself, then for her young daughter, Hannah. That is, until Mike Dormer arrives as a guest in her aunt's hotel. The mild-mannered Englishman with his too-smart clothes and distracting eyes could destroy everything Liza has worked so hard to protect: not only the family business and the bay that harbors her beloved whales, but also her conviction that she will never love--never deserve to love--again. For his part, Mike Dormer is expecting just another business deal--an easy job kick-starting a resort in a small seaside town ripe for development. But he finds that he doesn't quite know what to make of the eccentric inhabitants of the ramshackle Silver Bay Hotel, especially not enigmatic Liza McCullen, and their claim to the surrounding waters. As the development begins to take on a momentum of its own, Mike's and Liza's worlds collide in this hugely affecting and irresistible tale full of Jojo Moyes's signature humor and generosity.
