From the moment Kristen Daniels arrives at Hart’s Hollow, the place speaks to her soul. So when seventy-three-year-old Emmy Hart asks Kristen to help return the farm to its former glory, Kristen accepts—despite her fears about getting involved with Emmy—or the two kids in Emmy’s care. Then there’s the matter of Emmy’s ruggedly handsome grandson, who stirs feelings Kristen believed were long gone...

Emmy’s ideas about saving the farm only convince Mitch that his grandmother is as crazy as everyone in town suspects. Everyone except the beauty helping her sow the land. Something about Kristen’s spirit has Mitch sticking around—and wondering if he’s gone a little crazy himself. Because suddenly he’s hoping he might just find happiness in the very place he left behind...

The Highly Sensitive Parent by Elaine N. AronEnter for your chance to win a copy of THE HIGHLY SENSITIVE PARENT by Elaine N. Aron!

Parenting is the most valuable and rewarding job in the world, and also one of the most challenging. This is especially true for highly sensitive people. Highly sensitive parents are unusually attuned to their children. They think deeply about every issue affecting their kids and have strong emotions, both positive and negative, in response. For highly sensitive people, parenting offers unique stresses—but the good news is that sensitivity can also be a parent’s most valuable asset, leading to increased personal joy and a closer, happier relationship with their child.
Dr. Elaine Aron, world-renowned author of the classic The Highly Sensitive Person and other bestselling books on the trait of high sensitivity, has written an indispensable guide for these parents. Drawing on extensive research and her own experience, she helps highly sensitive parents identify and address the implications of their heightened sensitivity, offering:

A self-examination test to help parents identify their level of sensitivity

Tools to cope with overstimulation

Advice on dealing with the negative feelings that can surround parenting

Ways to manage the increased social stimulation and interaction that comes with having a child

Techniques to deal with shyness around other parents

Insight into the five big problems that face highly sensitive parents in relationships—and how to work through them.
