Η Νάντια δεν είναι μια συνηθισμένη γυναίκα. Μετά από ένα μακρύ και δύσκολο δρόμο αυτοανακάλυψης, βρίσκει τον εαυτό της αντιμέτωπο με το παρελθόν της, καθώς προσπαθεί να εξισορροπήσει τις ευθύνες της ως καθηγήτρια και ως κόρη ενός άρρωστου πατέρα. Η ζωή της γίνεται ακόμη πιο περίπλοκη όταν η Σάρα, ένα προσφυγόπουλο που έχει χάσει τα πάντα, γίνεται κομμάτι της ζωής της. Μαζί θα αναζητήσουν την επίτευξη της ευτυχίας.

Οι δυο τους θα ζήσουν την απώλεια, τον εξευτελισμό αλλά και το μίσος στο πρόσωπο τους, καθώς ψάχνουν την δύναμη μέσα τους να υπερισχύσουν. Θα καταφέρουν να βρουν την γαλήνη που ζητάνε ή είναι η μοίρα τους προκαθορισμένη;

Τα περισσότερα γεγονότα του βιβλίου, έχουν εμπνευστεί από αληθινές ιστορίες και μαρτυρούν την δύναμη της ανθρώπινης ψυχής ενάντια συντριπτικών συγκυριών. Η Νάντια καθώς επίσης και η Σάρα, θα συνειδητοποιήσουν ότι κανένας δεσμός δεν μπορεί να σπάσει, ειδικά αυτό μεταξύ μητέρας και κόρης.

Nadia is definitely not your ordinary girl. After walking the long and difficult road to womanhood, she finds herself haunted by her past, as she tries to balance her roles as a teacher and the daughter of an ailing father. To make matters even more complicated, Sara, a young refugee girl who has lost both family and home, unexpectedly becomes a part of her life, as they embark together on a journey in the pursuit of true happiness.

In a series of unfortunate events, they will suffer loss, hate and humiliation, as they try to draw the strength from within themselves to prevail. Will they manage to find the peace they both deserve, or are their destinies preordained?

Most of the events in this book are inspired by real life stories and serve as an everlasting triumph of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming odds. Both Nadia and Sara will come to realize that no bond can ever be broken, especially that between a mother and her daughter.

Kids Need Play and Recess – Their Mental Health May Depend on It

Today’s guest post is written by Michael J. Hynes, E.D., Superintendent of Schools for the Patchogue-Medford School District (Long Island, NY). 

As superintendents, principals and teachers plan for the upcoming school year, one thing is certain: We are serving a generation of children who are more anxious, depressed and suicidal than any generation before. A recent NPR Education Series broadcast states, “Up to one in five kids living in the U.S. shows signs or symptoms of a mental health disorder in a given year.”

There’s no debating that childhood trauma seriously impacts how students learn. Researchers have tied stressful events such as divorces, deportations, neglect, sexual abuse and gun violence to behavioral problems, lower math and reading scores, and poor health. The latest research, from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, finds that children who endure severe stress are more likely to suffer heart attacks and mental health disorders.

The Secret Life of a Homeschooler

This is a post for my kids from summer class. Before our lessons came to an end, they worked on a project that had to do with the topic of homeschooling. Most of my students expanded on the issue and were mostly negative towards it, citing the drawbacks that came from this educational approach. Here, however, we can examine another point of view…

Should My Child Study During Summer Vacation?

by Katherine Reilly

A few days ago, I finished teaching my classes and with great delight, proclaimed my school year officially over. The first thoughts that ran through my head were to go to the beach, relax and do nothing. However, I find myself systematically working on new projects while in turn, my students’ parents asked my advice on how to handle their kids during summer. “How much should they study each day?”, “Should they revise or learn something new?” were some of the questions asked before we parted ways for the summer.
