Sane New World - Ruby Wax

Comedienne Ruby Wax has been on a tough but enlightening journey through depression which has taken her from the Priory to an MA from Oxford in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy.

In Sane New World: Taming the Mind, she waxes lyrical about why we sabotage our sanity, how our brains work and how we can rewire our thinking.

Ruby said: “Though I personally have gone on a roller coaster of depression for most of my adult life, this book is not exclusively for the depressed.”

Master your mind with this manual to saner living.

One Moment One Morning - Sarah Rayner

Telling the story of a week following a fateful train journey, One Moment, One Morning is a moving novel about love and loss, about family and – above all – friendship.

The book is a stark reminder that, sometimes, one moment is all it takes to shatter everything.

Forthree passengers on the 7:44 train on the Brighton to London line on the morning in question, that moment has just arrived.

Yet this novel also reminds us that somehow, despite it all, life can and does go on.

Then the arrival of a stranger in town once again forces Tamia to make devastating choices.
