Daughter's Tale BLACK SWAN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

At ninety years old, Mary Soames is the only surviving child of Winston and Clementine Churchill. A Daughter's Tale follows her early life from her idyllic childhood in her own 'Garden of Eden' at Chartwell to her ATS service in mixed anti-aircraft batteries during the war. With glimpses into her fascinating personal diary, published here for the first time, she draws us into a world where the experiences of a packed family, social and romantic life unfold against a background of cataclysmic events. When Chamberlain's declaration of war in 1939 shatters Mary's world, she begins to share the anxieties and stresses suffered by her family through her father's position. The mutual love between Mary and her parents is evident on every page, from her Chartwell years to Winston's defeat at the 1945 general election, when she recounts her own devastation on her father's behalf. As she meets her future husband Christopher Soames at the end of this charming memoir, it is clear that, at twenty-four, Mary has lived a full life and is well prepared for her future as wife and mother.

Apothecary's Daughter Black Swan

Powieści i opowiadania

A nobleman and his wife, an apothecary nun, an astronomer-mathematician, an inquisitor, a poet who is both lover and villain, a portraitist, a queen and loyal servants deftly act out a beautiful drama of tantalizing relationships. They take up their roles in castle and convent, some surrounded by ornate interiors, garbed in velvets and silks, garlanded with precious jewels; while others abide in simple space devoid of art or representation, and dressed in plain linens and dull calicos. "The Apothecary's Daughter" is a wondrous tale, rendered in erotic prose and poetry, stitched through with rich imagery, humour and tenderness. A universal story of inquisition, book burning, persecution and intolerance of new knowledge, it also depicts trade and exotic travel, both across the surface of the earth and among the stars.

One day shortly after her father's death, when Jasmin Darznik is helping her mother move house, a photograph falls from a stack of old letters. The girl in it is her mother. She is wearing a wedding veil, and at her side stands a man whom Jasmin has never seen before. Despite Jasmin's pleas, her mother Lili refuses to say anything about the photograph, and Jasmin returns home frustrated and confused. But months later, she receives the first of ten cassette tapes from her mother revealing a wrenching hidden story of her family's true origins in Iran: Lili's troubled history of abuse and neglect, and a daughter she was forced to abandon in order to escape that life. The final tape reveals that Jasmin's sister, Sara - the Good Daughter - is still living in Iran. In this sweeping, poignant and beautifully written memoir, Jasmin skilfully weaves the stories of three generations of Iranian women into a unique tale of one family's struggle for freedom. The result is an enchanting and unforgettable story of secrets, betrayal, and the unbreakable mother-daughter bond.

Nan's mother loves to tell her daughter stories, though the details vary according to how much she has drunk. The tale she tells most often claims that Admiral Lord Nelson is Nan's father: he was her lover and she saw him die at Trafalgar. Or so she claims.

From Portsmouth in the early 1800s to the battlefields of the Crimea, Nan discovers the world is full of people with a story about Nelson. There are some questions we can never hope to answer...

Ayesha the white sorceress has been known by many names: 'She-who-must-be-obeyed', 'Isis Come To Earth' and 'Wisdom's Daughter'. Here she tells her tale of power, wisdom, love and deception in her own words. Arabian by birth, Ayesha's natural beauty was the cause of many wars and conflicts in her father's kingdom between princes and suitors, leading to rumours she was cursed. Seeking to protect herself she swears an oath of celibacy to serve Isis the Goddess of the Spirit of Nature, and turn away from Aphrodite the Goddess of Love. However, when Greek soldier of fortune, Kallikrates, comes to her for sanctuary, her resolve weakens. Kallikrates does not arrive alone - he is pursued by the Pharaoh's daughter who is widely envious of Ayesha's beauty and vows to destroy her. Only by staying true to Isis does Ayesha survive and as a reward Isis leads her to the hidden kingdom of Kor in Africa, to herald in a new Golden Age. The kingdom of Kor hides many secrets, including the The Flame of Eternal Life where ultimately Ayesha's vanity, obsession and desire lead to her downfall. The fourth and final book in the She sequence, Wisdom's Daughter is a fitting end to H. Rider Haggard's fantastical and memorable books featuring the beautiful immortal Ayesha and the is only volume telling her story in her own words.

SHE WON'T GO DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT It's not every day you up sticks and move to another world. But then, Zoe Boutin-Perry's life has never been ordinary.

The Colonial Union has also set them up as a target for hostile alien action. Zoe must become a player (and a pawn) in an interstellar battle to determine the fate of humanity - or see it fall. Her father's story was told in The Last Colony, but Zoe's tale reveals a whole new dimension. It's a story you may know, but you don't really know it at all.

Washington Square Macmillan

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This classic novel, originally published as a serial in "Cornhill Magaine" and "Harper's New Monthly Magaine," tells the story of the struggles between a daughter and her intelligent, controlling father from the viewpoint of an unnamed narrator. This book is often compared to Jane Austen's works for the clearness of its prose and its extreme concentration on human troubled relationships. Henry James tells the story of Catherine Sloper, plain and obedient, daughter of the widowed, well-to-do Dr. August Sloper of Washington Square. When a handsome, incompetent man-about-town proposes to Catherine, her father forbids the marriage because he believes the man to be after Catherine's fortune and future inheritance. The conflict between father, daughter, and suitor provokes consequences in the lives of all three that make this story one of James's most piercingly memorable. The inspiration for James's "Washington Square" came from a tale about a jilted heiress, which James heard from the actress Fanny Kemble. The novel provides a social portrait of Washington Square and lower Manhattan during the late nineteenth century and remains a memorable work--one featured in several films. Henry James (1843-1916), American novelist and critic, was an innovator in technique and a distinctive prose stylist. More than any previous writer, James refined the technique of narrating a novel from the point of view of a character, thereby laying the foundations of modern stream-of-consciousness fiction. Among his many acclaimed novels are The Portrait of a Lady, The Ambassadors, The Golden Bowl, and The Wings of the Dove.
