A Mix of bestselling and well-reviewed biographies and memoirs — including: historical biographies, celebrity biographies and memoirs, and inspiring narrative memoirs relating fascinating and compelling experiences of intriguing people.



At 28, Stephanie Land’s dreams of breaking free from her Pacific Northwest hometown to attend university and become a writer were put on hold by an unexpected pregnancy. Turning to housekeeping to make ends meet and provide for her daughter, Stephanie worked days and took classes online to earn a college degree, and began to write relentlessly. She wrote the true stories that no one told: those of the overworked and underpaid. Maid is Stephanie’s story, but it’s not hers alone. It is an inspiring testament to the strength, determination, and ultimate triumph of the human spirit.
