Crystal Clear
by Jane Heller
No one craves order more than Crystal does. Partner at one of New York's finest accounting firms, doting daughter of her aging father, and loyal girlfriend to her boyfriend, Steve, her life is completely under control. But when Crystal discovers that Steven has been cheating on her with his ex-wife, that her father has spent his gruff silent years yearning for a brother she never knew she had, and that--thanks to downsizing--her job may be in jeopardy, she is brought up really short.

Suddenly, the 43-year-old nose-to-the-grindstone bean counter has to consider that maybe her best friend Rona--a New Age junkie--is right! Maybe her aura does need cleansing. Maybe her charkras do need balancing. Though never one to follow fads or trends, Crystal unexpectedly finds herself on the ultimate long-overdue vacation in mystic, metaphysical Sedona, Arizona. Set down amidst the swirling energy vortexes, among numerologists, astrologers, and experts in Feng Shui, Crystal checks into the post Tranquility resort, signs up for the highly-publicized five-day "Sacred Earth Jeep Tour," and settles back, a total skeptic waiting--and almost willing--to be enlightened.

And enlightening it will be...

The Highly Sensitive Person
by Elaine N. Aron Ph.D.
Are you a highly sensitive person?

Do you have a keen imagination and vivid dreams? Is time alone each day as essential to you as food and water? Are you "too shy" or "too sensitive" according to others? Do noise and confusion quickly overwhelm you? If your answers are yes, you may be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP).

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Elaine Aron, a psychotherapist, workshop leader and highly sensitive person herself, shows you how to identify this trait in yourself and make the most of it in everyday situations. Drawing on her many years of research and hundreds of interviews, she shows how you can better understand yourself and your trait to create a fuller, richer life.

In The Highly Sensitive Person , you will discover:
* Self-assessment tests to help you identify your particular sensitivities
* Ways to re-frame your past experiences in a positive light and gain greater self-esteem in the process
* Insight into how high sensitivity affects both work and personal relationships
* Tips on how to deal with overarousal
* Informations on medications and when to seek help
