'My name is Samantha and I'm an alcoholic. At the time of writing, I've been sober for 13 years, 11 months and 16 days. And yes I still count. I promised I would never speak about it publicly until my children understood what that meant, that mommy was an alcoholic. I think they may have understood long before I did.'
From Whiskey To Water is the no-holds-barred memoir by one of South Africa's most loved radio talk show hosts, Sam Cowen. Having kept her alcohol addiction well away from the public eye for over 14 years, in this tell-all tale, Sam finds the courage to talk about her struggle with her addiction to whiskey, food and finally to a passion that saved her life - marathon swimming. Told in her characteristically hilarious dead-pan style, this is one of the bravest books you'll read this year.

'So this is a book on how I stopped drinking? No, it's not. It's how I stopped drinking, started eating, became clinically severely obese, stopped eating (everything that wasn't nailed down) and swam my way to freedom. No, it's not. It's actually about addiction and learning and sadness and anxiety and love and drive. It's about channelling the unchangeable into the miraculous. It's about dragons and learning how to put them to sleep when you can't slay them. It's about being my own Daenarys.'

`It's been a long time since I picked up a book so impossible to put down. Furious Hours made me forget dinner, ignore incoming calls, and stay up reading into the small hours. It's a work of literary and legal detection as gripping as a thriller. But it's also a meditation on motive and mystery, the curious workings of history, hope, and ambition, justice, and the darkest matters of life and death. Casey Cep's investigation into an infamous Southern murder trial and Harper Lee's quest to write about it is a beautiful, sobering, and sometimes chilling triumph.' Helen Macdonald, author of H is for Hawk `A triumph on every level. One of the losses to literature is that Harper Lee never found a way to tell a gothic true-crime story she'd spent years researching. Casey Cep has excavated this mesmerizing story and tells it with grace and insight and a fierce fidelity to the truth.' David Grann, author of Killers of the Flower Moon The stunning story of an Alabama serial killer and the true-crime book that Harper Lee worked on obsessively in the years after To Kill a Mockingbird Reverend Willie Maxwell was a rural preacher accused of murdering five of his family members for insurance money in the 1970s. With the help of a savvy lawyer, he escaped justice for years until a relative shot him dead at the funeral of his last victim. Despite hundreds of witnesses, Maxwell's murderer was acquitted - thanks to the same attorney who had previously defended the Reverend. As Alabama is consumed by these gripping events, it's not long until news of the case reaches Alabama's - and America's - most famous writer. Intrigued by the story, Harper Lee makes a journey back to her home state to witness the Reverend's killer face trial. Harper had the idea of writing her own In Cold Blood, the true-crime classic she had helped her friend Truman Capote research. Lee spent a year in town reporting on the Maxwell case and many more years trying to finish the book she called The Reverend. Now Casey Cep brings this story to life, from the shocking murders to the courtroom drama to the racial politics of the Deep South. At the same time, she offers a deeply moving portrait of one of the country's most beloved writers and her struggle with fame, success, and the mystery of artistic creativity. This is the story Harper Lee wanted to write. This is the story of why she couldn't.

As jy in 1850 in Bristol 'n weeskind was, was die lewe hard maar as jy plek gekry het in Ashley Down, een van George Müller se Kinderhuise, het die toekoms weer gewink. By Ashley Down is daar waarlik na jou omgesien. Dit was soos om in 'n groot, gelukkige, liefdevolle gesin te wees. George Müller was so 'n vriendelike man, en Ashley Down was 'n besondere plek om te wees.

Maar... toe George Müller jonk was, was hy selfsugtig en niemand kon op hom reken nie. Sou jy iemand vertrou wat nie alleen sy vriende se geld gesteel het nie, maar ook sy ouers s'n? Wat het dan die groot verandering gebring? Het die tyd in die tronk hom daartoe gebring om nie meer te steel nie? Was dit die tragiese dood van sy ma wat gekeer het dat hy weer leuens vertel? Wat is dit wat 'n dief verander het in iemand wat jy kon vertrou met miljoene Rande? Hoe het dit gekom dat hy sy geboorteland, Duitsland, verlaat het om in Engeland te gaan woon?

Vind uit hoe die Here een jong man se lewe merkwaardig verander het van selfsug en inhaligheid, tot dapper en betroubaar; hoe sy hart verlos is van selfgerigtheid. George het die kinders van sy nuwe huis in sy hart opgeneem en die kinders van Bristol het in hom iemand gevind wat sou opkom vir hulle belange. Hulle het hom vertou en liefgehad. George was die kinders se held.

Wat is werklik belangrik - hoe die wêreld jou sien of hoe God jou sien? Dit is hierdie besef, en die heerlikheid wat in die toekoms wag, wat dit vir Christene draaglik maak wanneer hulle ervaar hoe die wêreld hulle eenkant toe stoot.



Johan Smit moedig lesers in Gereed vir die wederkoms? aan om te volhard en nie moed op te gee in hulle geloof nie. Dié Bybelstudie trek lesers se aandag in die 25 dele na die voorÂ-uitsig van die ewige lewe en om deur die krag van Christus lyding en vervolging te deurstaan.



Net soos die gelowiges aan wie Petrus sy briewe rig, moet gelowiges vandag ook opstaan vir dit waarin hulle glo. Johan Smit lig ook die rigÂ-lyne uit wat Petrus se briewe vir Christene gee oor hoe om hulle geloof in die elkedagse lewensprakÂ-tyk sinvol te beoefen.

Gereed vir die wederkoms? is ideaal vir indiviÂ-due en ook vir kleinÂ-groepe. Dit bevat die volledige teks van Petrus se twee briewe.

After an extraordinary four-year battle, Gabi Lowe lost her beautiful, talented 20-year-old daughter, Jenna Lowe, on 8 June 2015 to pulmonary arterial hypertension, a rare degenerative lung disease, following a double lung transplant.
Jenna was young, bright and articulate. She was LEAD SA's Youth Hero of the Year in 2015. Her death was mourned by thousands of people whose lives she had touched. During her short but full life, Jenna and the Lowe family raised much-needed awareness around this rare and devastating disease, highlighting the dire need for access to medication and organ donors locally. Although desperately ill, Jenna became the face for organ donation in South Africa through the hugely successful #GetMeTo21 campaign in which she invited all South Africans to attend her twenty-first birthday celebration by clicking on a link to become an organ donor. Tragically, Jenna died four months before reaching her milestone.

Brilliantly written, riveting in all its terrible truth and pain, in this brutally honest memoir Gabi Lowe shares her family's desperate fight to save Jenna's life. Get Me to 21 will inspire us to believe that the ability to face even the darkest, and most unimaginable, lives deep within us all.

Luister na die braste,
wat kruisbeen oppie trap sit.
Behalwe entertainment, kry 'n taste wat Afrikaaps is!
Aitsa, sy boots het stars ..
Aitsa, hy's soe die star ...
Aitsa, gloe dis waar ..
Hy's John Wayne in Afrikaans!
Sy kop in die wolke ... en sy voete stewig op die aarde.
Dit is HemelBesem.
In hierdie boek nooi dié gewilde kletsrymer jou om saam te stap op sy lewenspad. Hy gesels reguit oor die dinge wat hom gevorm het, die sake wat hom na aan die hart lê ... en hy doen dit in die taal van sy hart.
Afrikaans.
Oor sý Afrikaans sê hy: 'Afrikaans is 'n groot deel van wie ek is. Dis die taal waarin ek my in oomblikke van woede kras uitgedruk het. Dis die taal waarin ek goed gesê het terwyl ek baklei het, waaroor ek agterna spyt was. Dis die taal waarin ek liefkosing uitgedruk en ontvang het ... As Ma geskel het, of jy bang was ... dis alles momente, en alle momente vorm my bestaan.'
Daarom nooi hy met hierdie boek lesers om 'n ander Afrikaans te leer ken. Elke hoofstuk het Afrikaanse uitdrukkings uit sy grootword- en leefwêreld as vertrekpunt, en dit is vervleg met sy bekende kletsrym-lirieke waarmee hy vlymskerp kommentaar lewer op maatskaplike kwessies en dinge wat hom na aan die hart lê.

Simon Witbooi (bekend onder sy verhoognaam HemelBesem) is alombekend as kletsrymer, TV-aanbieder, rubriekskrywer en motiveringspreker. Ná sy arm grootwordjare in die suidelike voorstede van Kaapstad was hy ná matriek 'n tyd lank 'n pastoor op Worcester, voordat hy teruggekeer het Kaap toe om op sy hip-hoploopbaan te fokus. Hy is deesdae een van die bekendste hip-hopkunstenaars in die land, en ook 'n gereelde ankeraanbieder van die gewilde joernaalprogram Pasella op SABC2.
Simon het 'n passie vir Afrikaans en hy is onder meer betrokke by die ATKV se projek Woorde Open Wêrelde (WOW), wat daarop gemik is om 'n liefde vir lees by skoolkinders te kweek. Hy is ook betrokke by die ATKV se jaarlikse Liedjieslypskool, wat daarop gemik is om nuwe Afrikaanse liedjieskryftalent te ontwikkel.
Simon is met die hip-hopkunstenaar YOMA getroud, en hy is die trotse pa van twee dogters, Simile en Halo.

Hoekom is ek so, wat is fout met my?

Ek kan nie regtig met iemand hieroor praat nie. Ek sien nie kans vir die verwerping, spot en veroordeling nie. Wanneer my ouers, vriende en familie dit uitvind, hoe gaan hulle reageer?

Partykeer dink ek aan selfdood; ek is tog net 'n oorlas vir die samelewing. Wat moet ek met al die angs en vrese maak wat my partykeer wil oorweldig?

Wat dink God van alles, waar pas Hy in? Hoekom straf Hy my so?

Wat word van my as ek doodgaan?

Kan 'n mens terselfdertyd 'n Christen wees en gay wees?

Waarom is die Kerk so huigelagtig en koersloos om gay persone te omarm?

Ek bly liewers stil en leef 'n lewe van leuens.

'Dit is my gebed dat jy uit hierdie verhaal hoop, insig en die wonder van seksuele diversiteit sal ontdek. Dat jy sal besef dat die verwerping van gay mense niks met God te make het nie, dat dit mensgedrewe is en dat jy nie jou geloof moet verloor oor wat mense en die Kerk sê nie.' ~ Retha

Once an enemy of the apartheid police, Andrew Brown has worked as a police reservist for almost twenty years. In this book he takes the reader on patrol with him - into the ganglands of the Cape Flats, the townships of Masiphumelele and Nyanga, and the high-walled Southern Suburbs.

Good Cop, Bad Cop is a personal account of the perilous and often conflicting work of a SAPS officer. Brown describes being shot at, arresting suspects in a drug bust, chasing down leads in a homicide investigation and keeping the peace during the UCT student protests.

Brown illustrates how difficult the job of the police is, and how easy it is to react with undue force. Yet he argues passionately that the role of the police is to be a service to communities and not a force to suppress social discontent.

Gripping and thought-provoking, this is a fascinating insight into the social fabric of current South Africa.

Zelda la Grange grew up in South Africa as a white Afrikaner who supported the rules of segregation. Yet just a few years after the end of Apartheid she would become a most trusted assistant to Nelson Mandela, growing to respect and cherish the man she had been taught was the enemy.

Good Morning, Mr Mandela tells the extraordinary story of how a young woman had her life, beliefs, prejudices and everything she once believed in utterly transformed by the greatest man of her time. It is the incredible journey of an awkward, terrified young typist in her twenties later chosen to become the President's most loyal and devoted servants, spending most of her adult working life travelling with, supporting and caring for the man she would come to call 'Khulu', or 'grandfather'.

Here Zelda pays tribute to Nelson Mandela as she knew him, a teacher who gave her the most valuable lessons of her life. A man who refused to defined by his past, who forgave and respected all, but who was also frank, teasing and direct. As he renewed his country, he also freed Zelda from a closed world of fear and mistrust, giving her life true meaning. Now she shares his lasting and inspiring gifts with the world.

This is a book about love and second chances. It will touch your life and make you believe that every one of us, no matter who are or what we have done, has the power to change.
