A heartbreaking, wildly inventive, and moving novel narrated by a teenage runaway, from the bestselling author of Midwives and The Sandcastle Girls. Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands is the story of Emily Shepard, a homeless teen living in an igloo made of ice and trash bags filled with frozen leaves. Half a year earlier, a nuclear plant in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom had experienced a cataclysmic meltdown, and both of Emily's parents were killed. Devastatingly, her father was in charge of the plant, and the meltdown may have been his fault. Was he drunk when it happened? Thousands of people are forced to flee their homes in the Kingdom; rivers and forests are destroyed; and Emily feels certain that as the daughter of the most hated man in America, she is in danger. So instead of following the social workers and her classmates after the meltdown, Emily takes off on her own for Burlington, where she survives by stealing, sleeping on the floor of a drug dealer's apartment, and inventing a new identity for herself -- an identity inspired by her favorite poet, Emily Dickinson. When Emily befriends a young homeless boy named Cameron, she protects him with a ferocity she didn't know she had. But she still can't outrun her past, can't escape her grief, can't hide forever—and so she comes up with the only plan that she can. A story of loss, adventure, and the search for friendship in the wake of catastrophe, Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands is one of Chris Bohjalian’s finest novels to date—breathtaking, wise, and utterly transporting.

Do you feel like you just don't fit in? Are you crippled by feelings of discontent? Do you know within that there is another way of being? Are you ready to begin your journey to truth with courage, determination, faith, and trust? Like you, author Amenti Marakita knew that she wasn't living her ultimate life. Restricted by feelings of dissatisfaction and a general sense that she just didn't fit in, she knew that something had to change. She needed strength and motivation to create happiness as an adult. Motherhood was her foundation, and secretarial work was her bread and butter, but she wasn't satisfied. She knew that it would take a leap of faith for things to really change. She took her first step to a new life by opening herself up to the world of natural therapies. She valued the process of working through challenges with various modalities and enjoying the rewards on the other side. She accepted the invitation to explore her reality and experience her true potential as a woman. In Close Your Eyes and Wake Up, Marakita, a Kinergetics practitioner and instructor, shares her guidance with those who are ready to leave the status quo behind and venture boldly into the unknown. Kinergetics opened her heart to a world of happiness within herself by allowing her programmed self to fall away. By learning to trust synchronicity, signs, and inner and outer guidance, she was reborn.

When a former student bungles a murder investigation, clinical psychologist Joseph O'Loughlin steps in to face a ruthless killer. A mother and her teenage daughter are found murdered in a remote coastal home, one defiled by multiple stab wounds and the other posed like Sleeping Beauty waiting for her prince. Joe O'Loughlin is drawn into the investigation when a former student, trading on Joe's reputation by calling himself "the Mindhunter," jeopardizes the police inquiry by leaking details to the media and stirring up public anger. Joe discovers a link between the farmhouse murders and a series of vicious attacks in which the victims are choked unconscious and brutally scarred. Now, Joe must stop a ruthless and brash criminal who has apparently graduated to murder. Much to his surprise, he is ably assisted by his eldest daughter, now a keen and courageous observer of her own right. Together they must track and catch a hunter who seems to anticipates every move they make. #1 International Bestseller "Close Your Eyes: the best Michael Robotham novel yet . . . impossible to put down." -- Stephen King
