Crying for Help: The Shocking True Story of a Damaged Girl w THORSONS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The second book from Sunday Times bestselling author Casey Watson. Two weeks after saying farewell to her first foster child, Casey is asked to look after Sophia, a troubled 12-year-old with a sad past. Sophia's actions are disturbing and provocative and, before long, Casey and her family find themselves in a dark and dangerous situation. Two years ago Sophia's mother had a terrible accident. Sophia has been in care ever since. Right away, Casey feels something isn't right. Sophia's a well-developed girl, who looks more like 18 than 12. She only seems to have eyes and ears for men, and treats all women with contempt and disgust. And she has everyone around her jumping through hoops. Over time, as more details begin to emerge about Sophia's past, it becomes clear that her behaviour is a front for an early life filled with pain and suffering. But although Casey feels she is gradually breaking through to Sophia and getting her to open up about things she has never spoken about before, her violence is threatening the safety of the whole family, forcing Casey to question whether she can really handle this lost and damaged girl. Both shocking and inspiring, this true story will shed new light on the extreme and sometimes dangerous nature of foster care.

A Marked Woman, is based on a true story of a husband's betrayal. It takes place in central Pennsylvania when Naomi Bryar awakens in a mental institution. Trapped behind closed doors her attempt to escape fails. She fights back as attendants force a strait jacket over her head, pull her arms tight across her chest and drag her to a padded cell. Exhausted she lay helpless on the matted floor. Sobbing till her voice is but a whisper she recalls her early years during the 1929 Depression, the happy times raising her two children in the Pennsylvania woods, and the difficulties World War II brought about during her 23 years of marriage. Naomi did her best to follow her religious up-bringing. There were many twists and turns during her 43 years of life, but what did she do so wrong that landed her here? ż In Joan Foor's gripping novel, A Marked Woman, we relive a time in recent history when a philadering husband could commit his wife to a life of torture, a time when mis-diagnosis was rampant and straight jackets and shock therapy were accepted medical "treatments." We share a daughter and son's frustration, knowing the truth about their father's mistress, yet unable to rescue their mother. The story grabs and does not let go, and the charming 1940's romance of the fated couple only makes the outcome more painful. A haunting, unforgettable must read.--Kathryn Jordan, Author of Hot Water, Gladys and Capone, In The Time of Apricots, and The Sins of Esther Mary. "The author has poured out her heart in this gut-wrenching story based on her mother's tortured life."-Cynda Thomas, author of He Came From The Sky, Hell of A Ride, and new release The WASP and the HORNET.

Lake of Destiny The Write Edge, LLC

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

What would you do if you met the person you knew you were destined to love? Would you tell them? Lake of Destiny is a magical romance about men in kilts, destiny, family healing, and the sometimes twisted path to love . . . "Delightful, charming, and heartwarming." -New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins Helping her aunt organize a Beltane Festival in a picturesque Highland village seems like the perfect escape from Anna's second broken engagement and the meltdown that wrecked her legal career. But to succeed, she'll need to wrangle kilt-wearing villagers, dangerous sheep, a disaster of a dog, and the reclusive laird who refuses to open his property to the public for the ancient tradition of "Sighting." For centuries, Loch Fŕil in Balwhither has been known to locals as a "thin" place, one where the veil between worlds peels back on Beltane morning to reveal the face of a person's one true love. The tradition could draw tourists by the busload, but that's exactly what Connal MacGregor fears will expose the two secrets he's been desperate to keep hidden. While Anna struggles to mediate between the needs of the village and Connal's need to protect his identity and his child, she finds herself falling in love with all of them: Connal and his daughter, the magical glen, the villagers. But day by day, opening herself to love exposes deep scars from Anna's childhood, and confronting those wounds could finally set her free--or endanger her every chance of happiness. PRAISE FOR MARTINA BOONE'S COMPULSION "Skillfully blends rich magic and folklore with adventure, sweeping romance, and hidden treasure . . . An impressive start." -Publisher's Weekly "Eight Beaufort is so swoon-worthy that it's ridiculous. Move over Four, Eight is here to stay!" -RT Book Reviews, RT Editors Best Books of the Year "Boone's Southern Gothic certainly delivers a compelling mystery about feuding families and buried secrets, not to mention a steamy romance." -Booklist "Darkly romantic and steeped in Southern Gothic charm, you'll be compelled to get lost in the Heirs of Watson Island series." -#1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout "The perfect Southern family saga: charming and steamy on the surface, with cold-blooded secrets buried down deep." -Kendare Blake, NYT bestselling author of Three Dark Crowns and Anna Dressed in Blood "A fresh twist on the Southern Gothic-haunting, atmospheric, and absorbing." -Claudia Gray, New York Times bestselling author of A Thousand Pieces of You and the Evernight and Spellcaster series "Beautifully written, with vivid characters, a generations-old feud, and romance that leaps off the page, this Southern ghost story left me lingering over every word, and yet wanting to race to the compelling finish. Martina Boone's Compulsion is not to be missed." -Megan Shepherd, NYT bestselling author of The Cage series and The Madman's Daughter

Naming of Eliza Quinn VIRAGO

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is an extraordinarily haunting novel, inspired by a true story. In the late 1960s, in the hollow of an ancient oak tree beyond a derelict cottage in Cork, were found the bones of a three-year-old girl. It was thought that they dated back to the time of the great potato famine of the mid 1800s.§The bones were discovered by an American woman, who had inherited the cottage which had lain empty and broken for forty years. Local searches reveal that the house had originally belonged to The Quinns. Eliza Quinn was their baby.§This is a story that speaks of generations and of landscapes: abandoned villages, famine graves, old potato ridges sinking back into the earth, traces of a population that fell by two and a half million in less than ten years. It is also about hunger, both physical and emotional. But above all, it is the story of the Quinn family.

Killing Time Windmill Books

This title is shortlisted for The CWA Gold Dagger for Non Fiction. David Dow is a leading death row attorney in Texas, where 99 per cent of appeals are rejected. He knows his clients are guilty, but he defends them because he believes murder is wrong. Henry Quaker is a quiet man, charged with murdering his childhood sweetheart and their two children. All the evidence is against him: he's mentally unstable, his gun is missing, his son's blood was found in his car, and he'd taken out life insurance on his family immediately before their murder. But as Dow painstakingly pieces the case together, he gradually becomes convinced that Quaker - whose execution is just weeks away - is actually innocent. This is the real story of Death Row; of corrupt lawyers, judges who are hostile to the very idea of justice and executioners who rely on inmates for moral support. "Killing Time" is a modern classic; both a searing and haunting memoir, and a story that will have you holding your breath until the last page.

Sixteen-year-old heiress and paparazzi darling Liddi Jantzen hates the spotlight. But as the only daughter in the most powerful tech family in the galaxy, it's hard to escape it. So when a group of men shows up at her house uninvited, she assumes it's just the usual media-grubs. That is, until shots are fired. § Liddi escapes, only to be pulled into an interplanetary conspiracy more complex than she ever could have imagined. Her older brothers have been caught as well, trapped in the conduits between the planets. And when their captor implants a device in Liddi's vocal cords to monitor her speech, their lives are in her hands: One word, and her brothers are dead. § Desperate to save her family from a desolate future, Liddi travels to another world, where she meets the one person who might have the skills to help her bring her eight brothers home-a handsome dignitary named Tiav. But without her voice, Liddi must use every bit of her strength and wit to convince Tiav that her mission is true. With the tenuous balance of the planets deeply intertwined with her brothers' survival, just how much is Liddi willing to sacrifice to bring them back? Haunting and mesmerizing, this retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's The Wild Swans fuses all the heart of the classic tale with a stunning, imaginative world in which a star-crossed family fights for its very survival. §Praise for Spinning Starlight "Like the best mid-20th-century science fiction, this entertaining adventure delivers the thrilling plot, effortless worldbuilding, compulsive readability, and indefinable 'sense of wonder' of grand masters like Heinlein and Asimov (but with decidedly updated sensibilities)."§- Kirkus Reviews "This story shows the importance of truth and that every choice has consequences.

Alexis Kandilis is an international conductor at the height of his profession. He receives standing ovations at every concert and wildly enthusiastic reviews from the media. Yet, on a personal level he is deeply unfulfilled. Mahler's haunting "Song on the Death of Children" plays over and over in his mind, bringing back ugly childhood memories he can't erase. A strange collection of not-quite-true friends and not really beloved family surrounds him: his mother, Clio, who forced him to abandon his dreams of composing for a more prestigious career as a conductor; his wife, Charlotte, whom he despises and frequently betrays; his bisexual friends Pavlina and Tatiana; Sacha, a young and talented Russian flutist; and Ted, his agent, who has booked--or overbooked--him for the next three seasons. They all provide some measure of reassurance, but it is easy to predict that Kandilis's glorious world will soon shatter. The media takes advantage of an altercation between Kandilis and a percussionist during a rehearsal to attack him, condemning not only his action but also his unorthodox methods. After a panic attack before a concert, he makes an unforgivable mistake during a performance, and as a result, he is denied the direction of the most prestigious performance of the decade. In his private life, things are also falling apart. Sacha introduces him to an exclusive poker club made up of multimillionaires, but his new rich friends begin to distance themselves from him as he becomes increasingly difficult, until even his manager recommends that he take some time off. Used to being a winner, Kandilis starts gambling -- and losing -- heavily. His disintegration accelerates, and at last he enters a psychiatric hospital. He still has some friends he can count on, but even the most loyal among them can't protect him against himself. On his descent into hell, he discovers but cannot avoid the darkness that is in all hearts, including his own.
