Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

It has everything; familial hatreds, great love, romance and failed relationships, attempts by the character to change patterns of life -in fact all the ingredients of a page -turner. It is written in a highly charged poetic style and is full of fine imagistic writing and It should be published both because of all the above and because it is an individual experience which has universal significance. - By Siobhan Campbell, Tutor on M A Creative Writing Course Kingston University Description Mad? Sad? Or Bad? the truth about Alzheimer's Disease. After a lifetime of coping with a very difficult - and sometimes nasty - mother, Patricia now faces her parent`s decline and impending death. As she guided her mother through family history, she tries to unravel what has always ailed the older woman.The story moves through darkness, to understanding and to skeletons in the cupboard. And ultimately to love. But Patricia reaches a mind- blowing conclusion about what she believes to lie behind old age dementia. About the Author Pamela spent most of her working life bringing up four children and doing casual jobs.. she took a degree in English and at a local university and then taught in Adult Education and became a Market Research Interviewer. When her work dwindled in the Recession of the 1990s, she tried for a while to run her own private Adult Education business. She has always wanted to write and began in her twenties. She has broadcast her own talk on the radio, published some short stories and articles, and had prizes in a few writing competitions. Pamela lives in The Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames. Book Extract '....And she's got a perfect figure, you know.' For the first time I am listening to what the nurse is saying about my eighty-eight year-old Mother. 'I like her,' she had begun. What's all this? I asked myself. My mother's never got on with anybody, and probably nobody has ever liked her. She certainly doesn't like anyone much. We talk, as I scrabble around trying to remember how the conversation had started. 'She asked me where I came from. Tells me she has always wanted to travel...' Well, we all know that old story, don't we? '...And she's got a perfect figure, you know.' That's when my ears pricked up. I'd hardly been listening, having looked after my mother for as long as I can remember, having lived her life rather than my own... But now this, at nearly ninety and last week nearly dead. 'What do you mean, what do you mean? In and out - in and out?' 'Oh - everything,' the nurse laughs. 'And it is so good for you, because it's genetic.' Genetic? I am her, not exactly a case of symbiosis, since it has not been beneficial to me, but something like that. A week ago, I stood over my mother, having been summoned to what I had thought was her deathbed. She was asleep, but gasping in her sleep, and I thought, 'Are you gasping to stay alive in the hope that one day you will have a life? No, what I really thought was, you look like I feel. Gasping to stay alive in the hope that one day you will have a life. And now this, the perfect figure? A young girl's body beneath that weary face? The tune 'Beautiful Dreamer' comes back into my mind. I think she even used to sing it, way far back, or at least hum it anyway. Beautiful Dreamer, a Sleeping Beauty, is it really that? Is that old face weary with disappointment? Because the young girl's body has never been satisfied? Yet my mother has never shown any stron

'Only with the greatest of simplifications, for the sake of convenience, can we say Africa. In reality, except as a geographical term, Africa doesn't exist'. Ryszard Kapuscinski has been writing about the people of Africa throughout his career. In a study that avoids the official routes, palaces and big politics, he sets out to create an account of post-colonial Africa seen at once as a whole and as a location that wholly defies generalised explanations. It is both a sustained meditation on the mosaic of peoples and practises we call 'Africa', and an impassioned attempt to come to terms with humanity itself as it struggles to escape from foreign domination, from the intoxications of freedom, from war and from politics as theft. The Beginning: Collision, Ghana 1958 More than anything, one is struck by the light. Light everywhere. Brightness everywhere. Everywhere, the sun. Just yesterday, an autumnal London was drenched in rain. The airplane drenched in rain. A cold, wind, darkness. But here, from the morning

George M Baker - Poison Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Poison: A Farce Mother. The carriage will serve me in my sad errand. I have a floral tribute in this box to place upon the grave of the dear departed, a little more hot toast, Mary Jane, an anchor, expressive of hope and Christian resignation. It will be but a trifle among the many offerings. The Rev. Mr. Paddy never knew how many friends he had until he was dead (breaking another egg). Mary Jane. You're eating the last egg, mum. Mother. I grieve that there is no other egg, but this will suffice to support me through the trying ceremony. He was an eminent Christian, - he had three wives. (Bell rings.) Twitters (without, calling). Has that thundering shoemaker sent my new boots? Mary Jane (calling at door). Just come. sir. Mother. Cease this unseemly noise, girl (rising), summon the equipage. Mary Jane. The equipage, mum? I didn't see you come in no carriage. Mother. My limited earthly resources do not permit me to provide myself with such luxuries. I shall use one of your master's. My poor, dear, departed daughter, did not survive to enjoy his prosperity. I do. Mary Jane. But he wants the carriage to go to the train, mum. Mother. Trains go hourly. (Takes up a box. Exit.) Mary Jane (standing at window). Well, if the late Mrs. Twitters was like this mother of hers, it ain't no wonder that master's kind of fidgety like. There. - she's got hold of John, now, and she's stepping into the carriage that was going to take master to the train. And she's druv off! Oh, deary me. What vicious things elderly women can be. (Enter Twitters hastily.) Twitters (Looking at watch). I shall have a close shave for the 9-20 train, but I think I can manage it. Breakfast s ready of course, of course? Mary Jane, It was ready sir. Twitters (approaching table). Why, what on earth does this mean? Mary Jane. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

You Can Quote Me on That Brassey's US

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

You Can Quote Me on That isn't about the polite, country-club sport where players shake hands over the net and offer congratulations on a fine drop shot. It views tennis from inside, where competition is grueling, tempers flare, and egos collide. Top tennis journalist Paul Fein has compiled hundreds of the most outrageous, most significant, and most illuminating quotes on, by, and about tennis's biggest stars and hottest controversies. You want smack talk? How about Maria Sharapova brushing aside an intended compliment with "I'm not the next Kournikova - I want to win matches!" Wonder why Jimmy Connors was such a cutthroat? According to his mother, "Jimmy was taught to be a tiger on the court. When he was young, if I had a shot I could hit down his throat, I did. And I'd say, 'See, Jimmy, even your mother will do that to you.' " Fein even delves into the gritty detail of players' personal lives. Witness Andre Agassi's explanation that "sex doesn't interfere with your tennis; it's staying out all night trying to find it that affects your tennis." And of course legendary bad boy John McEnroe both fires off and gets hits with multiple zingers. Fein includes quotes of praise, thoughtful commentary, and interesting points about players, tournaments, and the game - where it's been and where it's headed. If it's about tennis and worth remembering, well, You Can Quote Me on That. You Can Quote Me on That brought back a flood of wonderful memories, and I discovered plenty of juicy quotes I never heard before. Ever since I first picked up a tennis racket as an eleven-year-old in Long Beach, California, I've crusaded to improve the sport I love. I battled country club elitism and snobbery, the reactionary establishment, "shamateurism," racism, homophobia and sexism. Winning thirty-nine Grand Slam titles, including twenty at Wimbledon, and thumping Bobby Riggs in the famous "Battle of the Sexes" match gave me the public platform I needed. Early on, I learned the power of words. They can make people laugh and cry, think and argue, and ultimately inspire us to do good and great things. Tennis history has always been a huge fascination for me. I loved stories about the tradition-breaking flamboyance of Suzanne Lenglen, the classic elegance of Helen Wills, and the serve-and-volley boldness of Alice Marble. As an enthusiastic teenager, I not only dreamed of playing like these champions, I wanted to be like them. Lenglen liberated tennis women in the 1920s with her attitude as much as her then-risque attire. "I just throw dignity to the wind and think of nothing but the game," she proclaimed. Those words stuck in my mind, as did the eloquence of Helen Wills Moody, the first American to dominate women's tennis. Seventy years ago she said: "Concerning the limits and limitations of the women's game - why should we believe there are any?" My thoughts exactly! That passion for tennis is reflected every day around the world, whether it be at a gritty public court in Compton, California, where Venus and Serena got started, or Centre Court at Wimbledon - my favorite place in the world. Tennis players tell it like it is. They praise and lambaste opponents, confide their hopes and fears, talk tennis issues, and express themselves in every conceivable way. Andre Agassi is one of my favorite players because he's a champion off the court, too. He's raised millions of dollars for charities, and his college preparatory academy in Las Vegas has given hope to hundreds of disadvantaged children. After Andre rebounded from a devastating career slump to win Roland Garros in 1999, he said, "I've got to say, what turns me on more than anything is just making a difference in people's lives. That's one thing I've taken with me and I'll keep. Probably even more so than the accomplishments itself at the French Open is the fact that somewhere along the line it gave hope to people." Paul Fein, an award-winning journalist, is also a sectional tournament player, former satellite tournament director and regional TV commentator, and teaching pro, who knows first-hand about the pressures, joys and disappointments of competition. Paul's You Can Quote Me on That contains hundreds of funny, informative and provocative quotes by and about present and past stars on thirty-five different topics. No one and nothing is spared. I found the entire book engrossing. I'm sure you will, too. And you can quote me on that! - Tennis superstar Billie Jean King

From International bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster comes her newest pulse-pounding thriller and Kindle Bestseller (Amazon US & UK)**WINNER** GOLD AWARD, Dan Poynter Global Ebook Award, Thriller **WINNER** BRONZE AWARD, Dan Poynter Global Ebook Award, SuspenseTRACES OF KARA is an action packed, pulse pounding psychological thriller/suspense novel that features a determined killer who slowly loses his grip on reality as his carefully detailed plan starts to fall apart and a heroine determined to move forward with her life who now must reconcile everything she believed to be true about her family with the reality of their tragic past.Q&A with author Melissa FosterQ: How is TRACES OF KARA different than your suspense novel, CHASING AMANDA?MF: TRACES OF KARA is a much darker book than any of my others. I allowed Roland Greer to take me to his dark side, and I delve into his motivations in a much more complex way than I had with CHASING AMANDA. This is not just a women's fiction novel, this novel will satisfy men and women, and lovers of dark thrillers--some readers say a few scenes border on horror, but I'm not sure I agree with that. Q: Is this book a stand-alone novel?MF: I have had readers request a second book, to see what happens with Kara and Roland. I'm thinking about it. Q: Does this book offer readers your typical emotionally compelling read?MF: Definitely. This is more than a thriller. TRACES OF KARA delves into the mother-daughter relationship, the relationship between spouses, and between siblings. The emotions of the characters are raw and riveting.Q: What authors do you think this book is similar to?MF: I think this book will resonate with readers who enjoy Tess Gerritsen, CJ Lyons, Lisa Gardner, and even readers of Lisa Scottoline and other women's fiction authors will enjoy the mother-daughter storyline. Q: What's next for you?MF: I've just published HAVE NO SHAME, a book about forbidden love in the civil rights era. HAVE NO SHAME is not a thriller, like TRACES OF KARA. HAVE NO SHAME is a historical fiction/romantic suspense. ****Kara Knight can't wait to leave her hometown for the promise of nursing school and a fresh start on her future--leaving behind an over protective mother, a broken heart and painful memories. However, twenty-five miles away, the twin she doesn't know exists is determined to be reunited with the sister he cannot forget.Kara is abducted and thrown into her obsessive captor's delusional world. As the past she thought she knew unravels around her, Kara struggles to make sense of the memories that come creeping back, threatening her sanity and her safety. Meanwhile, Kara's mother races against time to save the daughter she fears she will lose when a long-held secret is revealed. The hours tick away as her captor plays out his plan--to take Kara with him into death at the exact moment of their birth, never to be separated again.

A book about beliefs, doubts and miracles and some reasons to stand up and be counted for your beliefs. Although it is an occasionally serious book it is, I hope, never earnest. Some extracts quoted on the back cover are: 'Freudian analysis can't achieve in ten years what the Communion service manages in twenty minutes, usually in better surroundings and set to music. In fact Freudian analysis may be fairly regarded as the rich and gullible person's version of Communion, it's just a pity it doesn't work. Anyway I could never take it myself, my toilet training was wholly without incident and I never fancied my mother.' You might not care to hear this, but running an Oxfam shop is no more honourable or ethical an occupation than running a gun shop, and I've done both. 'Blind faith, which I hope is not the sort I have, might be bad, but it's nowhere near as bad as the blind rejection of faith - which is mad.'

ABOUT 7.55 p.m. on the 10th of August, in a recent year of grace, all was turmoil and confusion at Kings Cross Station. Eight oclock, when the night mail starts for Scotland, is always a pretty busy time but, on the evening of that loth, the platform was a surging, seething mass of humanity. Strangers were hustling one another, friends were tearing hither and thither with hardly time to nod and enquire Where are you going, old fellow Barely waiting for the reply, they tore off to the booking-office to get their tickets, then back to the carriages to see about sleeping berths, or scrimmage for a porter to label their luggage, their dogs, or their guns, to some out of the way Highland station, for which the authorities hadn't even provided a proper printed address. The train was immensely long, and two engines were required to drag the heavy freight of humanity and luggage hundreds of miles through the darkness to bonnie Scotland. At the door of one of the compartments was gathered a little group, of three persons. Lorna Stracey-a tall, handsome girl of about twenty years of age, whose fine carriage was even more noticeable than her beauty, had such a distinctly aristocratic air that every one who observed her intuitively felt she was indeed a gentlewoman. The almost defiant pose of her head commanded respect from the porters, who, as they passed, said for the hundredth time, with marked deference, By yr leave. Mother, darling the girl exclaimed, in a few minutes I shall be actually off to Scotland Yes, my child, where I hope you will thoroughly enjoy your first glimpse of the Highlands. A young fellow, who completed the party, stood at the door motionless, his gaze rivetted on Lorna he appeared to be drinking to the last dregs the cup of admiration. His eyes seemed to say You are my ideal-my god Lorna, pity me But the girl paid no heed, her attention being arrested by a leash of lovely setters that a porter was dragging along the platform, while another man, running beside the dogs, was trying to stick a label on the reverse side of the address attached to their collars. Are they not beauties cried the girl. What lovely red coats they have I wonder where the porter is going to put them, Into the dog van, answered the young man, speaking for the first time come and see. In her eagerness to follow the dogs, the girl forgot how angry she had felt when she beheld Alf Curtis at the station, where she wished to be alone with her mother, whom she was leaving for some weeks, and, smiling graciously, walked down the platform after the setters, accompanied by her devoted admirer......

I invite you to step into the pages of this adventure, gain new insight into the workings of God in an individual's life, and grow strong in the Lord with Ralph. Debra Mureen's book, The Church House Mouse is a delightful tale about a mouse who learns the importance of salvation. After disobeying his parents, he gets into trouble and almost loses his life because of foolishness. He also learns the importance of forgiveness. I highly recommend this book as a tool to help children learn about the most important subject in the world, salvation through Jesus Christ. Pastor Joseph Chiles, First Assembly of God, Mesquite, Texas My long-time friend, Debra Mureen has, in this delightful little tale, created a complete, but cogent and concise word picture of the truth of and need for the Gospel of our Lord Jesus. It speaks hope and joy to anxious and confused folks of all ages. It uses just the proper amount of humor to entice those that are both curious and anxious in a powerful, but quiet and gentle manner. I have been a professional educator and active Gideon for over forty years, and I wish I had had this story to read to my sons when they were young. Leonard Davis, Dallas, Texas.

Gone doesn't mean forgotten. The year's most haunting and unforgettable debut. When Alice Salmon died last year, the ripples were felt in the news, on the internet, and in the hearts of those who knew her best. But the person who knows her most intimately isn't family or a friend. Professor Jeremy Cooke is an academic whose life has become about piecing together Alice's existence in all its flawed and truthful reality. For Cooke, faithfully recreating Alice's life through her diaries, emails and anything using her voice -- is all-consuming. He does not know how deep his search will take him, or the shocking nature of what he will uncover. A psychological thriller that's perfect for reading groups and fans of "Gone Girl, Before I Go to Sleep, The Husband's Secret, Daughter," and "The Girl on the Train" "What a wonderful new voice. What a pleasure to read a thriller that's so ambitious and so full of emotion and suspense. Bravo!" --Nicci French, author of "The Memory Game" and "Blue Monday" "An absorbing, intricate and extremely original novel. It is also immensely clever and intriguing. It kept making me recall how I'd felt watching "Twin Peaks." The kind of immediate shock and grief I felt for Laura Palmer was what I felt for Alice. The process of piecing together the heroine's life is so absorbing. I mourned her more and more powerfully as the story went on. "What She Left" is beautifully written and very emotionally involving. I hope that it garners all of the commercial and critical success it deserves." --Claire Kendal, author of "The Book of You" "A tight, clever, compelling story... the reader must act as detective, rebuilding Alice Salmon from the digital footprint she leaves behind." --Paula Daly, author of "Just What Kind of Mother Are You""
