Product Description:  Angels have appeared universally throughout history in folklore, art, and in many religions. They bring messages from heaven to us mortals here on earth. Angels may bring tidings of great joy or urgent warnings; their messages may be musical or may be communicated in the smiles of cherubic babies. Their images resonate with innocence and grandeur, beauty and awe. Their powerful wings enable them to fly far above our earthly struggles yet they can swoop down to save us. Angels speak through human beings, and some would even say there are angels in our midst. Among Angels celebrates the human angels -- all around us -- who inspire us by bringing us peace and tranquility, innocence and joy, hope and love. Like the prequel, Open Hearts, this book will include a personal foreword and art by Jane Seymour, quotes from literature, spiritual texts, and personal stories that honor the importance of the angels among us.  (text taken from amazon.com)

MAKING YOURSELF AT HOME: finding your style and putting it all together
by: Jane Seymour
Format: Hardcover
ISBN: 0-756-62892-X
Publisher: DK Publishing
Pub. Date: March 19, 2007

"Celebrate your style—have fun and
discover the artist within you."

—Jane Seymour

No one knows better than Jane Seymour how essential it is to put it all together. An acclaimed actress, devoted wife, and mother of six, Jane is also an accomplished artist, talented fashion designer, published author, and noted philanthropist.

Jane is adored by fans and critics alike for the roles she's played in her vibrant career. When not acting, Jane—an accomplished artist—devotes her time to her family, her friends, and her home. In Making Yourself At Home Jane opens her home to readers and offers tips, techniques and advice on creating personal spaces within one's own home.

"When I invite people into my home, I immediately welcome them into my world."
--Jane Seymour

Unlike other home design books that require would-be decorators to invest a small fortune in furnishings and decorative pieces, Seymour encourages readers to use what they already have to make their homes beautiful and elegant—an approach that is both affordable and practical. Making Yourself At Home will inspire budding home decorators to have fun, take risks, discover beauty, and turn their homes into havens of peace, joy, and serenity.

Filled with intimate and personal anecdotes about entertaining and painting, about how much photographs of her family mean to her, and about the challenges she's overcome throughout her life, Jane's stories provide a practical perspective on the art of home decoration that is at once encouraging and inspirational.

A multiple Emmy and Golden Globe winner, recipient of the Officer of the British Empire (OBE) in the year 2000, actress Jane Seymour has proven her talents in virtually all media—from the Broadway stage to motion pictures to television. In addition to her critically acclaimed work as an actress, Seymour also has successful careers as a designer of housewares and as a painter, exhibiting her painting and artwork in prestigious galleries around the world. Putting It All Together coincides with the recent launch of her new home line, created in partnership with Saks, Inc.

TWO AT A TIME: HAVING TWINS

"One baby is a miracle. To be given two at once is a gift beyond words," writes Seymour, already a successful children's author, in the introduction to her debut child-rearing book. The star of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman here gives a personal account of having twins at age 45.

Best described as a diary of her pregnancy interwoven with advice and information on tests, ultrasounds, amniocentesis, exercise, and general dos and don'ts, this is not the story of an average mother's pregnancy (the star could afford special care, clothing, grooming, etc.). Yet her voice is compelling and reaches out to comfort and assist anyone expecting twins.

Also, Seymour and coauthor Novotny's counsel is sound, with clear insets that answer leading concerns. (Novotny authored the library standby The Joy of Twins, written in a similar style.) A good choice for public libraries, given the popularity of the author and the paucity of useful books on twins.
