THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STREET is an irresistible, romantic and heart-warming saga of south London's women during the Second World War. 'A delightful experience... I can thoroughly recommend it' Ellie Dean It's 1944. Londoners are weary of air raids and rationing. But now, with rumours of an invasion of France, the tide of war seems to be turning. In Lavender Road, however, everyone still has challenges to face. Young widow Louise Rutherford longs to make a new life for herself. When a glamorous American officer arrives at her factory to recruit volunteers for a secret project, she senses an opportunity, only to find her efforts hampered by ten-year-old war orphan, George Nelson. Jen Carter's relationship with theatrical producer Henry Keller hits a hurdle when an old flame reappears. And when V1 retaliation rockets start hitting London, her mother Joyce's tentative romance is threatened too. Will the war finally wear down the women of Lavender Road, or can love thrive even in the toughest of times?

Ar, defeated, shamed, systematically looted, is occupied by Cosian forces. Perhaps Marlenus of Ar, alone, the great ubar, could recall the men of Ar to the recollection of their Home Stone and its meaning. But it is thought that he perished in the Voltai. Young women from Earth brought to Gor are commonly brought for the markets, to be branded and collared, and sold as the delicious, lovely livestock they are. Naturally Goreans regard these women as barbarians, for they do not speak Gorean, and know little of civilization, Gorean civilization. They have little in common save their beauty, and their newly acquired fear of their masters. Their naivety and ignorance, while sometimes troublesome, are occasionally of considerable value to a master. An instance of such a case is the young woman whom we shall call Janice, for that name was put on her as a Gorean slave name. In the prison pits of piratical Treve, a bandit city in the Voltai mountains, there exists a large man, a chained prisoner, an amnesiac who believes himself to be of the Gorean peasantry. The nature and even the existence of this prisoner, strangely enough, is a closely guarded secret. In order to better keep this secret, it is decided that his servant and warder had best be no native Gorean, but, ideally, one muchly ignorant of the history and politics of Gor. For this purpose, Janice is purchased and brought to Treve. Of her charge she knows only what she has been told, but even that may prove to be too much.

Novels five through eight of the Gabriel Allon series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva. Prince of Fire Gabriel Allon is back in Venice, when a terrible explosion in Rome leads to a disturbing personal revelation: the existence of a dossier in terrorist hands that strips away his secrets and lays bare his history… The Messenger Gabriel Allon is about to face the greatest challenge of his life. An al-Qaeda suspect is killed in London, and photographs are found on his computer—photographs that lead Israeli intelligence to suspect that al-Qaeda is planning an attack aimed straight at the heart of the Vatican. The Secret Servant A terrorist plot in London leads Israeli spy Gabriel Allon on a desperate search for a kidnapped woman, in a race against time that will compromise Allon’s own conscience—and life... Moscow Rules The death of a journalist leads Israeli spy Gabriel Allon to Russia, where he finds that, in terms of spycraft, even he has something to learn if he wants to prevent a former KGB colonel from delivering Russia's most sophisticated weapons to al-Qaeda. Praise for the #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva and the Gabriel Allon series “Those in the know are calling him the new John Le Carré. Those who are reading him can't put him down."—Chicago Sun-Times "The enigmatic Gabriel Allon remains one of the most intriguing heroes of any thriller series."—The Philadelphia Inquirer "A writer who brings new life to the international thriller."—Newsday "Allon is Israel’s Jack Bauer…Thrill factor:*****."—USA Today "Nobody handles this kind of intrigue as well Silva. He gives Gabriel and the rest of his team the kind of depth seen only in spy novels by Robert Ludlum and Tom Clancy."—Richmond Times Dispatch "A terrific thriller…one of the best-drawn fictional assassins since The Day of the Jackal."—The San Francisco Examiner “Silva builds tension with breathtaking double and triple turns of plot.”—People

Meisterhafte Stories voller Lebenslust Wenige Tage nach ihrem Yale-Abschluss starb Marina Keegan bei einem Autounfall. Sie war ein Ausnahmetalent, das der Welt brillante Texte voller Lebenslust hinterließ.

Marina Keegans Stories und Essays vereinen schwerelosen, sensiblen und mitreißenden Optimismus mit ungeheurer literarischer Reife: hoffnungsvoll, wild und melancholisch. Man liest sich atemlos, lachend und mit Tränen in den Augen durch das ganze fulminante Buch.

Jeannette Walls ist ein glückliches Kind: Sie hat einen Vater, der mit ihr auf Dämonenjagd geht, ihr die Physik erklärt und die Sterne vom Himmel holt. Da nimmt sie gerne in Kauf, immer mal wieder mit leerem Bauch ins Bett zu gehen, ihre egomanische Künstlermutter zu ertragen oder in Nacht-und-Nebel-Aktionen den Wohnort zu wechseln. Mit den Jahren allerdings werden die sozialen Verhältnisse schlimmer, die Sprüche des Vaters schaler und das Lügengebäude der Eltern so zerbrechlich wie das Schloss aus Glas, das der Vater jahrelang zu bauen versprochen hatte.
