Beyond the Wall: A Memoir
by Dolores E. Cross
After having resigned from her position as president of a fragile historically black college in Atlanta only four years earlier, Cross found herself in a cold courtroom that Tuesday morning, listening in dismay as she was fined, sentenced to a year of house arrest, 500 hours of community service and five years probation. False accusations and press reports spread that she had embezzled millions of dollars in student financial aid in her role as president of Morris Brown College—a crime she did not commit. What did happen and how did she deal with it?

Finding My Breath
by Rochelle Lynn Falack
Rochelle Lynn Falack tried medication and therapy to deal with her OCD. Then she decided to try yoga – and her life has never been the same. Yet, when this modern Orthodox Jew recently published a first-person account of her harrowing personal story, some in the local Jewish community expressed discomfort and distate over her revelations.
When she was 3, Falack’s teenage babysitter forced her to eat cockroaches with her scrambled eggs and routinely stuck the child’s head in the toilet after she had used it. Too young to understand, Falack coped by retreating inside her head to count.
She reveals all in Finding My Breath, a nonfiction, first-person account of her struggle, including how her husband turned to drugs to cope with his wife’s OCD.
Finally, at age 30, she recognized she needed help. She discovered yoga by chance – and soon realized she was counting less and less. She eventually traveled to Bali to learn how to become a certified teacher.
Now, through Finding My Breath, she hopes to help other OCD sufferers find a way to gain some control over their compulsions.
Who should read it: People who like true, personal stories, yoga lovers
