Browsing an antiques shop in Wiltshire, Alison Bannister stumbles across a delicate old portrait—identified as the doomed Tudor queen, Anne Boleyn. Except Alison knows better. The subject is Mary Seymour, the daughter of Katherine Parr, who was taken to Wolf Hall in 1557 and presumed dead after going missing as a child. And Alison knows this because she, too, lived at Wolf Hall and knew Mary...more than four hundred years ago. The painting of Mary is more than just a beautiful object for Alison—it holds the key to her past life, the unlocking of the mystery surrounding Mary’s disappearance and how Alison can get back to her own time. To when she and Mary were childhood enemies yet shared a pact that now, finally, must be fulfilled, no matter the cost. Bestselling author of House of Shadows Nicola Cornick offers a provocative alternate history of rivals, secrets and danger, set in a time when a woman’s destiny was determined by the politics of men and luck of birth. A spellbinding tale for fans of Kate Morton, Philippa Gregory and Barbara Erskine.

Trees as large as mountains, scattered across the land like oases, support all life, safe from the monsters that patrol the night fog on the ground. Races of people living in medieval societies populate the giant trees. Known as the Lorns in this particular tree, they welcome the four kids into their worlduntil Hellferata, the evil spirit descendent of Medusa, intrudes upon their beloved tree. & ;Full of vivid imagery and unbridled creativity, D. G. Sandru's debut is as a mystical journey of enchantment, courage and the power of friendship. As the kids search for a way home, Hellferata searches for the prophesized mortal superhero she must battle to the death. Suspecting Michelle for this golden-haired superhero, Hellferata sends her son, Dracu Mort, into the Lorn Tree to kill her. Fearful of the evil spirit the Lorns move to expel the four Americans from their tree. Thinking quickly, the kids devise a plan to avoid the monsters roaming the land and travel to the next tree, where it is rumored there may be a path back home. Will their ingenuity, cunning, and courage help them make it to the Cascade Tree and find a way home, or will Hellferata and Dracu Mort mete out their wrath before they can escape?& ;A dramatic and heroic escape into a world full of excitement and danger, Sandru brings to life a beautiful landscape dramatically different than our own yet living from the same heartbeat. Imparting the inspiring message that fear is but a passing foil and love is the true answer, Arboregal: The Lorn Tree is a spiritual quest of hope and friendship that exposes the inherent power we all share. & ;

The present volume containing the dissertation of Dorion Cairns is the first part of a comprehensive edition of the philosophical papers of one of the foremost disseminators and interpreters of Husserlian phenomenology in North-America. Based on his intimate knowledge of Husserl’s published writings and unpublished manuscripts and on the many conversations and discussions he had with Husserl and Fink during his stay in Freiburg i. Br. in 1931-1932 Cairns’s dissertation is a comprehensive exposition of the methodological foundations and the concrete phenomenological analyses of Husserl’s transcendental phenomenology.The lucidity and precision of Cairns’s presentation is remarkable and demonstrates the secure grasp he had of Husserl’s philosophical intentions and phenomenological distinctions. Starting from the phenomenological reduction and Husserl’s Idea of Philosophy, Cairns proceeds with a detailed analysis of intentionality and the intentional structures of consciousness. In its scope and in the depth and nuance of its understanding, Cairns’s dissertation belongs beside the writings on Husserl by Levinas and Fink from the same period.

“….An expansive, eclectic, and innovative novel.”—Women's Review of Books A modern-day Things Fall Apart, The Amputated Memory explores the ways in which an African woman’s memory preserves, and strategically forgets, moments in her tumultuous past as well as the cultural past of her country, in the hopes of making a healthier future possible. Pinned between the political ambitions of her philandering father, the colonial and global influences of encroaching and exploitative governments, and the traditions of her Cameroon village, Halla Njokè recalls childhood traumas and reconstructs forgotten experiences to reclaim her sense of self. Winner of the Noma Award—previous honorees include Mamphela Ramphele, Ngugi wa Thiong’o, and Ken Saro-Wiwa—The Amputated Memory was called by the Noma jury “a truly remarkable achievement . . . a deeply felt presentation of the female condition in Africa; and a celebration of women as the country’s memory.”

Die letzte Frau Heinrichs VIII. – der große Roman über die Tudor-Zeit Heinrich VIII., der alte, sterbende König, hatte schon fünf Königinnen an seiner Seite. Als sechste Frau sucht er sich Catherine Parr aus – erst einunddreißig Jahre alt und schon zweifache Witwe. Er hätte keine bessere finden können, denn Catherine ist klug, auf Ausgleich bedacht und eine überaus patente Frau. Ihr Herz gehört aber Thomas Seymour, dem Bruder der dritten Ehefrau Heinrichs, und sie beginnt eine Affäre mit ihm. Aber nicht deswegen hängt ihr Leben an einem seidenen Faden – es tobt auch immer noch ein blutiger Religionskrieg. In diesem sehr genau recherchierten Roman ist eine moderne Frau zu entdecken, die bislang im Schatten ihrer Vorgängerinnen stand. In England wurde Elizabeth Fremantle dafür gefeiert, dass sie wie kaum eine andere die Tudor-Zeit wieder lebendig werden lässt.

And last but not least, there is Candy's Picks, which includes a collection of some of the author's favorite trips, destinations and activities. Candy describes the access of all attractions, lodging options and tourist sights, rather than just stating that something is or isn't accessible. After all, accessibility is in the eye of the beholder; and what may be accessible to one person can be filled with obstacles to someone else. Says Harrington, There's a world of travel choices out there for wheelers and slow walkers.

Three women, three short stories, three voyages into the unknown: Catherine, a young physicist, is one of the first people to set foot on Mars. In the remoteness of space, she and the rest of the crew are soon caught in a life-threatening situation. Daniela, a teenage dropout, is found unconscious in the forest. Could she possibly be involved in a series of crimes? Susanne, a philosophy student, gets lost in the Sahara along with her expedition team. She witnesses unexplainable events, during which one team member after the other disappears without a trace. Simon Weipert’s short stories are expeditions into unexplored terrain in both a literal and a figurative sense. They are not only thrilling adventure stories in which the reader follows the heroines into fascinating and dangerous landscapes, but also voyages into the characters’ souls. For all three women, their adventure means a profound change in their lives, and in the face of danger all of them are suddenly confronted with emotional conflicts, such as the end of a relationship, a career crisis, or doubts about religion. In a clear and precise language, the author combines three extraordinary adventures which ponder life’s deepest questions.

DescriptionIn this sci-fi fantasy novel, the author tells the story of the Northland, a mystical world in crisis. Once a magical realm of love and service, the inhabitants of this realm have abandoned their sacred heritage and embraced the world of the machine. As their intuitive awareness now fades into memory, selfishness and destruction expand. This descent into the lower mind has also created catastrophic energy surges that have spread throughout the Northland threatening its very existence. Their only hope is Baben, the Cosmic Being, and his fellow expedition members. They must solve the mystery of the magnetic disturbances and save their world. Their quest must rely on Mother World and their own latent abilities if they are to save the Northland and themselves. About the AuthorBecause of his lifelong struggle with a major mental illness, the author has relied on his writing to express frustration and direct his creative intelligence. This essential source of inspiration has helped satisfy his need to express his ideas while sidestepping the recurring traps of delusions and emotional extremes. In conjunction with medications, meditation, and other coping skills, Zurn's writing is now greatly improved, and his art is both thought provoking and entertaining. During the last two years, he has also begun to share his writing and his mental illness experiences in a wide variety of settings. This has been made possible by the help and encouragement he has received from Chipmunka Publishing and NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) of DuPage County, Illinois. John Zurn was born in 1954 and lives with his wife, Donna, in Geneva Illinois. He received an M.A. in English from Western Illinois University in 1982.
