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.

Message to Your Heart Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Niamh Greene's delightful fifth novel "A Message to Your Heart" is an intriguing and heart-warming story for fans of the wise humour of Catherine Alliott and the modern day fairytales of Cecelia Ahern. Throw in Niamh's unique brand of heart-warming storytelling and readers are in for a real treat. Frankie Rowley is far too practical to believe in karma or fate ...and her family and friends reckon that work-obsessed Frankie's strongest relationship is with her phone. (And why not? At least it never judges her for cancelling dinner for the umpteenth time.) When she loses that precious phone on a business trip to San Francisco, Frankie is forced to hire a replacement. Soon she's getting texts meant for someone else - a woman called Aimee who seems like a lot of fun, and whose family clearly loves to keep in touch - and whose presence in her life is the last thing Frankie needs. Frankie goes on the warpath, but she is in for some surprises when she blunders into Aimee's world. And the biggest surprise of all is how your life can be changed forever by losing a phone. Frankie may not believe in karma or fate, but suddenly it looks like they've got her number ...Praise for Niamh's previous titles: "Brilliantly astute". ("OK! Magazine"). "Very funny". ("Heat"). "Greene's wicked sense of humour provides much needed relief in these recessionary times". ("Irish Independent"). "This author is capable of being very very funny". ("Sunday Independent"). "Hilariously written but anchored in real life, this will keep you laughing all the way". ("Woman"). "You'll love this tale of wrong turns, romance and reinvention". ("Daily Record"). "A Message to Your Heart" is a story of two women, two phones, a lot of crossed wires and a life changed forever that will go straight to readers' hearts just like Niamh previous bestselling novels, including the award-nominated "Secret Diary of a Demented Housewife".

Beyond Enkription - The Burlington Files - 2854581773

Beyond Enkription - The Burlington Files Dolman Scott

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The author of Beyond Enkription and the rest of The Burlington Files series is Bill Fairclough who was born in England in 1950. In 1978 he founded a niche global intelligence organisation known as "Faire Sans Dire". The series is based on Bill Fairclough's life and some of Faire Sans Dire's activities. Beyond Enkription is the first novel in the series of six novels to be published. The series covers events involving Bill, his beguiling family and his double-dealing colleagues ranging from the First World War to 9/11, the related Nisha incidents and beyond. The series even covers new revelations about the Edward Snowden affair and has been or is being written with film adaptation in mind. Nevertheless each book is or will be a standalone novel albeit each one might comprise several films and/or television series. The first novel is set in 1974 in the heart of the Cold War. It is about a wayward accountant, Edward Burlington aka Bill Fairclough. In 1974 he is unwittingly working as an agent for MI6 by night whilst auditing beans during the day and is nearly murdered not just once but four times between March and June 1974. For his own safety Edward is underhandedly despatched to work as an accountant in Nassau only to be recruited by the CIA and face more death defying moments in the Bahamas, Brazil and Haiti before the year's end. Meanwhile his family are sucked inexorably into the perfidious mess and intrigue surrounding Edward's double life and their own machinations. The repercussions of the Burlington family's activities resonate from Kinshasa to Islamabad via Washington and Westminster and back. Nothing is what it seems to be in this treacherous novel where disinformation is the norm. Beyond Enkription is a family yarn and history; a spy novel and espionage reference book; a mystery and suspense thriller and more besides: a realistic tale of a dynastic duplicitous family that knows instinctively the knack of survival. The brutal opening contrasts well with the tantalising and duplicitous Prologue yet the physicality of the opening chapter is arguably far less vicious than the cerebral scheming that ensues. The book is a distinctive memorable and realistic read full of captivating characters. Its intertwined plots would have challenged Aristotle's intellect. So, when you read it, if you don't think so then you may have lost the plot! As one connoisseur put it succinctly ... "question everything you assume isn't disinformation". Critics described Beyond Enkription as "A compelling, provocative and beguiling spy novel: a must for connoisseurs ..." and "Brutal ab initio, cerebral thereafter but forever realistic ..." As for its realism you can always contrast Bill Fairclough's past on WikiTree or LinkedIn with Edward Burlington. Just how real can you get? We hope you enjoy reading it and succeed in differentiating between fact, fiction and disinformation. Please see http://www.theburlingtonfiles.org, http://www.fairesansdire.org, http://uk.linkedin.com/in/billfairclough and http://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Fairclough-119&public=1 for more information ... assuming the authorities haven't closed down our websites by now and the other websites haven't tried to extinguish all evidence of knowledge of The Burlington Files!
