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.

PRAISE FOR CODE BLACK "In CODE BLACK Philip Donlay firmly establishes himself as a writer of great thrillers. The first hundred pages are breathtaking. His knowledge of aviation is incredible. CODE BLACK is even better than CATEGORY FIVE. A real winner." -Steve Thayer, author of The Weatherman and Wolf Pass "I don't like airplane thrillers, and I never read them. Except this one; I loved it. Philip Donlay is a gifted storyteller, and everything is there-great characters, great plot, and suspense and momentum that don't stop. Put this book on the very top of your reading list." -Brian Haig, Bestselling author of The Man In The Middle and The President's Assassin A terrible blizzard, a grisly accident, a mid-air collision, and that's only the beginning... Minnesota Book Award Finalist - January 2008 Crippled by a high altitude crash, Wayfarer Flight 880, half the roof ripped away, flies on in the evening sky. Seated in the back, amid dead, dying, and wounded passengers, pilot Donovan Nash fights decompression and oxygen deprivation to make it to the shattered cockpit and its dead pilot and grievously wounded co-pilot. With no power, no instruments, and time running out, Nash must land a plane he's never flown... On the ground, his fiancée, Dr. Lauren McKenna, must convince Henry Parrish, an unlikely ally, to help her save the man she loves. Together, Lauren and Henry have to stay one step ahead of an airline whose secret agenda seeks to exploit the impending disaster for its own benefit, as well as heightened security, to execute a daring midair solution to save Donovan and the others on Flight 880. Code Black is the story of a desperate rescue, heroism under fire, and the secrets even heroes must keep. PHILIP DONLAY's experience as an aviator has taken him to thirty-five countries on four continents. He earned his pilot's license at the age of seventeen. The following year his first article was published in a national magazine on aviation, and at the age of nineteen he began his aviation career as a flight instructor in Wichita, Kansas. When he was twenty, Donlay accepted the position of co-pilot of a private jet based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. This was followed by a stint back in the States as a cargo pilot flying at night. By the age of twenty-two he had earned his first jet-type rating. Presently he holds the title Senior Captain and is licensed to fly six different types of jets. Donlay's first novel, starring Donovan Nash, is Category Five. Donlay lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.s

PREFACE THE situation of the British Isles is such that the weather is uncertain and variable. Whilst in some parts of the world it is possible to fix a date months ahead for an out- door festival with the sure knowledge that there will be sunshine, no such thing is possible in these islands. Yet there are certain laws which the course of the weather follows. This book does not profess to be a complete course of Meteorology. It is hoped, however, that a study of its pages will give added interest and a better understanding of the various types of weather. The weather is always with us. It provides scope for one of the most easily practised forms of nature study for the pupils of all schools, whether in town or country.

Dubious Glory: The Two World Wars and the Canadian Novel combines literature and history to provide a lucid and engaging account of the remarkable transformations that have occurred in Canadian war fiction between 1915 and 1977. Beginning with a detailed focus on World War One fiction, Dubious Glory delineates the ways in which Canadian writers use the romance genre both to justify and to glorify the actions of the Canadian solider in combat. Inevitably, the transition from the jingoistic romance of Ralph Connor's The Sky Pilot in No Man's Land to the stark realism of Colin McDougall's Execution reflects the profound changes found in Canadian war fiction after World War One. This study culminates in a sustained analysis of Timothy Findley's The Wars in which he returns to the Great War, a war that he perceives with irony, an irony tinged, nonetheless, with elements of romance.
