Joanne

Glamour (South Africa) - - Health - By Karin Bry­nard by Sally Thorne The Farm at the Edge of the World by Sarah Vaughan

Lady Gaga won a Golden Globe for her per­for­mance in Amer­i­can Hor­ror Story: Ho­tel, is star­ring in a re­make of A Star Is Born and is still churn­ing out su­perb mu­sic. Pro­duced by Mark Ron­son, Joanne is the star’s fifth al­bum and fea­tures her char­ac­ter­is­tic strong vo­cals and lyrics, plus a great coun­try sound. Key track ‘Mil­lion rea­sons’ Get it Be­cause it’s Gaga One of SA’S best­selling and ad­mired crime writ­ers shows off her award-win­ning style in a plot that races be­tween a Stel­len­bosch mur­der and a kid­nap­ping in Soweto. At the cen­tre of it all, In­spec­tor Albertus Beeslaar is re­luc­tantly drawn into an in­ves­ti­ga­tion that re­veals the dark un­der­belly of the Cape Winelands. This is the sec­ond of Karin Bry­nard’s nov­els to be trans­lated into English from Afrikaans, and we can’t wait for the third. When Lucy Hut­ton’s pub­lish­ing house merges with a ri­val group, she is forced to spend ev­ery day in a tiny chrome of­fice with her co-worker, neme­sis and mas­ter of mind games Joshua Tem­ple­man. De­spite his good looks and charm, Lucy finds Joshua re­pul­sive and cold. But will a per­fectly in­no­cent el­e­va­tor ride turn her hate into love, or will Lucy lose the big­gest game of all? A light­hearted and sul­try rom­com. It’s 1939 and Will and his sis­ter are evac­u­ated to a farm in Corn­wall to live out their child­hood pro­tected from the rav­ages of war. But when Will and the farmer’s daugh­ter Mag­gie fall in love, the con­se­quences are more se­vere than ei­ther could have imag­ined. Pre­pare to shed some tears.

YOUR YEAR AHEAD

If you’re a Capricorn, like ac­tress Nina Do­brev (9 Jan­uary 1989), you’re am­bi­tious, prac­ti­cal and dis­ci­plined, and this prom­ises to be a suc­cess­ful year for your ca­reer, fi­nances and love life, so stop tak­ing life so se­ri­ously! You may have re­cently gone through a breakup, in which case fresh starts are promised and there is a good chance of a hot ro­mance at work. If you’re part­nered up, you’re in for good times to­gether, es­pe­cially around March. Your cy­cle may be prob­lem­atic, so see your doc­tor, but out­side of that, it’s go­ing to be a healthy year for you.

Say yes to change There may be an op­por­tu­nity for you to ex­pand your money, and you’ll be feel­ing par­tic­u­larly driven and pas­sion­ate at work. There also could be changes in your ca­reer – get ready to say yes! You may find a new re­la­tion­ship through work or, if you’re in a re­la­tion­ship, your part­ner will get in­volved in your ca­reer. Get set for lots of sex­ual en­ergy in your love life this month and ex­press your­self in the bed­room, es­pe­cially around 20-21 Jan­uary. Your only health warn­ing is your hands: take care of them!
