Broken Hedges;Joseph Kang’ule MMwirichiaKShs990.00Add to cart
Forever trailed by the spiders, political activist Kamirangi Mwenda has dedicated himself to fighting the locusts—the people behind the corrupt and oppressive government—a fight for the second liberation of Kenya,
His father, the veteran Mau Mau General Baikioo, is a bitter man: wallowing in poverty, not honoured as the hero he is, and false promises by the government; the sacrifices he made for the liberation of the country are nothing … and his son is walking the same path.
As the locusts threaten to wring the country dry, the past grapples with the present, pulling apart father and son, forcing them to realise that the cost of true freedom might be far too high.

Rachel, an American war photographer, who is struggling to ~ shed the trauma of her career. Now she has to cover a quite different story — for a glossy travel magazine.

And Miza, a young woman living far from her beloved homeland of Zanzibar. As the second wife of Tarig, she remains a secret from his terrifying ‘other’ wife, Maryam. Until one day, when Tariq fails to come home…
These three women will quickly learn that, in Oman, things aren’t always what they appear to be…
The Zanzibar Wife is a bewitching story of clashing cultures, of secrets and of revelations by the author of the international bestseller The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul.

Dare to Lead by Brene BrownKShs1,990.00Add to cart
Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.
Leadership is not about titles, status, and wielding power. A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for recognizing the potential in people and ideas, and has the courage to develop that potential.
When we dare to lead, we don’t pretend to have the right answers; we stay curious and ask the right questions. We don’t see power as finite and hoard it; we know that power becomes infinite when we share it with others. We don’t avoid difficult conversations and situations; we lean into vulnerability when it’s necessary to do good work.
But daring leadership in a culture defined by scarcity, fear, and uncertainty requires skill-building around traits that are deeply and uniquely human. The irony is that we’re choosing not to invest in developing the hearts and minds of leaders at the exact same time as we’re scrambling to figure out what we have to offer that machines and AI can’t do better and faster. What can we do better? Empathy, connection, and courage, to start.
Four-time #1 New York Times bestselling author Brené Brown has spent the past two decades studying the emotions and experiences that give meaning to our lives, and the past seven years working with transformative leaders and teams spanning the globe. She found that leaders in organizations ranging from small entrepreneurial startups and family-owned businesses to nonprofits, civic organizations, and Fortune 50 companies all ask the same question:
How do you cultivate braver, more daring leaders, and how do you embed the value of courage in your culture?
In this new book, Brown uses research, stories, and examples to answer these questions in the no-BSstyle that millions of readers have come to expect and love.
Brown writes, “One of the most important findings of my career is that daring leadership is a collection of four skill sets that are 100 percent teachable, observable, and measurable. It’s learning and unlearning that requires brave work, tough conversations, and showing up with your whole heart. Easy? No. Because choosing courage over comfort is not always our default. Worth it? Always. We want to be brave with our lives and our work. It’s why we’re here.”
Whether you’ve read Daring Greatly and Rising Strong or you’re new to Brené Brown’s work, this book is for anyone who wants to step up and into brave leadership.
