Excerpt from Found the True Vein: A Drama, in Five Acts Scene First - Interior of a Palace Car in an Overland Excursion Train - Car is represented as standing across Stage from R. to L.; one half removed to show interior - Train stationary - Travelng bags, stools and chairs scattered about. Spooner at L. seated and reading a paper. Behind open windows of car mountain scenery. (Enter Clara at R. door of car.) Clara. Is'nt this provoking? Here I've come all the way to Truckee to meet my cousin that I have'nt seen for two years, and my uncle, that I have'nt seen for one, enduring that Jasper Marden's protection for ten mortal hours, and only to find the train here, and the whole party gone to visit Lake Tahoe. That's what comes of their taking advantage of an invitation to come over in an excursion train. I wonder how Alice looks, now she's been to Paris, and interviewed a French milliner. Spoilt I'll bet. If there's one girl improved by seeing Paris, there's half a dozen ruined by the trash the tour to "Yurop" has put into their otherwise empty heads. I suppose she speaks nothing but French; most people forget English three months after seeing Paris. Wonder if she'll let me kiss her! 'fraid I'll spoil her hat. Oh! those dear delightful Parisian hats; wonder if mine's comme il faut; and her father, the dear old noodle, he's so wrapt up in that girl, that he's left his business in the hands of others and followed her through a year of European dissipation. I'll just see if they haven't come back - they should be here presently. (Exit Clara at L. door of car.) Spooner. By G-e-o-r-g-e. That's a deuced fine girl. Wonder where she came from; have'nt seen her on the train before. (Looks after Clara admiringly. Enter Marden at R. door of car.) Marden. So I shall soon see Alice! She'll enjoy the meeting, doubtless! My plans prosper well. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Sandra Brown was eight when her friend and neighbour, twelve-year-old Moira Anderson, disappeared from the small town of Coatbridge near Glasgow in 1957. Moira has never been seen since. Twenty-seven years later, at a family funeral, Sandra's estranged father confessed to her that he had been involved in the girl's disappearance. Appalled and fascinated by his curious half confession, Sandra began to delve into the case and in so doing discovered that her father was an acknowledged child molester whose activities were known not just to everyone in Coatbridge but also to the police. The horrifying jigsaw she pieced together, along with the admission her father had made, ultimately convinced Sandra that he had indeed been responsible for Moira's disappearance nearly fifty years ago. "Where There Is Evil" is the remarkable story of Sandra's quest to unravel the mystery and see justice done. 'Completely gripping...Sandra Brown found evil in the person of her own father; and she confronted it as few could have done...Everyone will want to read this amazing story.' - Andrew O'Hagan.

What do you do when you think your ex-lover has murdered his wife? That's the question Ursula Gretton, an archeologist working on the Saxon burial ground on Bamford Hill, puts to Meredith Mitchell in the hope that Meredith's friendship with Cotswold Chief Inspector Markby might cast some light on her dilemma. But Markby is dismissive of Ursula's suspicions concerning the disappearance of Dan Woollard's wife - until a body is found in the rubbish dump near the site Woollard and Ursula have been excavating. Woollard's team of archeologists aren't the only ones to disturb the peace of the windswept hill. Much to the fury of a taciturn pair of local landowners, a band of New Age travellers has set up camp on the hill, only to disappear the day the body's discovered. Markby is faced with a tangle of conflicting clues, suspects and possible witnesses - amongst the latter Meredith Mitchell - and when a second body is found it is clear the web is growing evern more complex, and destructive.

Diane Von Furstenberg - Diane BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Diane is the frank and compelling story of an extraordinary woman and her adventures in fashion, business, and life. "Most fairy tales end with the girl marrying the prince. That's where mine began," says Diane Von Furstenberg. She didn't have to work, but she did. She lived the American Dream before she was thirty, building a multimillion-dollar fashion empire while raising two children and living life in the fast lane. Von Furstenberg's wrap dress, a cultural phenomenon in the seventies, hangs in the Smithsonian Institution. "No one was making a little bourgeois dress, so I did," she told Newsweek in her 1976 cover story. The dress achieved such popularity that in the five years it was on the market, Diane sold more than five million of them. Her entry into the beauty business in 1979 was as serendipitous and as successful. Diane learned her trade in the trenches, crisscrossing the country to make personal appearances at department stores, selling her dresses and cosmetics. "As I was learning to be a woman and enjoying being one, I was sharing my discoveries, designing for my needs, and making a business of it," she writes. That business had its ups and downs. Eventually, there was so much demand for and exposure of the dress that the market became saturated; on the verge of bankruptcy, she licensed that part of the business, focusing on her fragrance and beauty products. Von Furstenberg's personal world unraveled a bit in 1980 when her mother, Lily, a survivor of Auschwitz, had a breakdown. Diane of course knew about her mother's experience in the camps, though her mother had never wanted to dwell on it. She understood that her own need for freedom came from her mother's lack of it, and that her resilience derived from her mother's life lesson to always turn a negative into a positive. Leaving the glitz of Manhattan and the music of Studio 54 behind, Diane escaped to Bali with her children, returning inspired and renewed. With all of this energy, the cosmetics business flourished. But it grew so fast that in 1983 she found herself undercapitalized and was forced to sell. In 1985, having given up control of her brand to licensees and with her children away at school, Diane turned her back on America and packed for Paris. She spent four years in her new role as part of the literary scene there, trading in her spike heels for flat shoes and tweed. In 1990, she found she missed the chase and returned to New York to regain control of her name and relaunch her company. Frustrated by the degraded status of her brand and dismissed by the retail community, she searched for a new way to reconnect with her customers. She found it through the revolutionary new medium of teleshopping and once again became a success. However, she still wanted to return to retail. In 1997, as the wrap dress was making a comeback with the nostalgia for the seventies, Von Furstenberg, with the help of her beautiful daughter-in-law, Alexandra, redesigned the dress for the nineties and made her name relevant to a whole new generation. Now, at fifty, Diane works to make sense of the contradictions in her life: glamour vs. hard work, European vs. American, daughter of a Holocaust survivor vs. wife of an Austro-Italian prince, mother vs. entrepreneur, lover vs. tycoon. She emerges wiser, stronger, and ever more determined never to sacrifice her passion for life.

Granny Backpacker in Africa - Basia Meder

Opis - In March 2002 Basia Meder began her adventure of a lifetime, a solo backpacking journey in Africa. Equipped with previous backpacking experiences in fifty countries around the world she freed herself from her everyday routine and departed Australia. First, she visited 20 countries in 13 months, travelling thousands of kilometres throughout the entire African continent. Her companions were her cameras. She landed in Johannesburg, in the Republic of South Africa. >From the very south of the continent, she ?climbed her way? through 16 countries to Egypt. In Madagascar she found herself in the middle of a revolt. In Lesotho she was engulfed in snow and in Malawi she was struck with malaria. Next she encountered mountain gorillas in Rwanda, celebrated Christmas in Ethiopia and then she was overcome by the beauty of waste desert. From there, she set off to Ghana, Togo, Burkina Faso and Mali where her journey was dramatically cut short. It was not until May 2010 that she picked up her backpack again and travelled to Morocco, her 21st African country, to finish her African odyssey. She travelled mostly on land, using local modes of transport: bus, car, mini-bus, truck, train, boat, horse, camel and she covered hundreds of kilometers on foot.

Anna from Hay Cambria Books

The feisty illegitimate Anna was a determined girl. At 17 she deserted her foster parents and ran away from home to find the father she never knew. Destitute in the steel-making town of Dowlais she married for security when she was told the lie that her father was dead. However, an industrial town was not for a girl who had been brought up in a middle class home and educated. The humble home and the drudgery it brings from the work of a steel-making husband were not for her. Her feminist leanings soon found sympathy with the suffragette movement and she fled to London to join the cause. For several years she gave her full support often getting into trouble. Arrested for illegal activity she was jailed, force-fed almost to death at Holloway and thrown out before her demise should embarrass the authorities. She was rescued by her aristocratic friend who secured a job for her as a maid with an upper class household. The master`s son attempted to rape her, she fought him off injuring him. Accused of seduction she was sacked and blacklisted. Rescued from suicide by a man she had befriended, he persuaded her to return to Wales. Back in Dowlais she fell in love and married Emlyn, a collier, believing her first husband had died. After having four children the marriage turned sour when her in-laws despised her and the work that comes with a large family wore her down. The marriage was at a crisis point when John, her first husband, turned up and claimed her. Seeing a way out of her despair, she left her children with Emlyn and re-joined John. For a time John`s elevated position as a supervisor in the steelworks gave her the life she had wanted. Tragedy struck when John died in an accident at work leaving her with two children. On his death bed he confessed he had lied to her years ago: her father was alive. She embarked on a two-year campaign to search for her father leaving her children with a neighbour. The search was futile, what`s more John`s relatives had come to claim her children accusing Anna of neglect. Again, under desperate circumstances she married a man older than herself for security. However, he was in ill health and he died several years later leaving Anna destitute and with two young children. Alcohol and self-neglect took over until she ended in a home for the aged where she learned the truth about her father after he had died. She had known him almost all her adult life but never thought that he, an aging evangelist she had befriended, could ever be her father. The story covers many subjects including love, class distinction, war, religion and poverty in a cosmopolitan community. It`s a mixture of heartache and drama but has its moments of comedy as well as apathy, keeping the reader enthralled in the novel till the last page.

Street Kid Harper Collins

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

John Peel first brought Judy's moving childhood story to light on 'Home Truths'. Abducted by her psychotic spiritualist father and kept like a dog in the backyard, she went on to suffer at the brutal hands of nuns in a Manchester orphanage, before living wild on the streets. An incredible, heart-wrenching story of a child who refused to give up. After a childhood lived in terror, in 1994 Judy was presented with an Unsung Heroes Award for her charity work with street children in South Africa. Her moving story came to light after Judy was interviewed by John Peel on BBC's 'Home Truths'. 'Street Kid' is the inspirational and heartwrenching story of her early years. At age two, in postwar Manchester, Judy was snatched from her mother and sisters by her psychotic father - a spiritualist preacher. He kept her in his backyard, leaving her to scavenge from bins to beat off starvation. At four, she was sent to an inhumanely strict catholic orphanage, before being put back in her father's cruel care. For the next three years she was treated as a virtual slave. After being taken by her father to South Africa, Judy ran away to join the circus where she found her first taste of freedom and friendship - before her father tracked her down. Weeks later Judy was alone again and living on the streets, too terrified to turn to her circus friends. For 9 months 12-year-old Judy made her home in a shed behind a bottle store before collapsing in a shop doorway from near-starvation. Finally, aged 17, Judy managed to pay her way back to England to find her mother and sisters. But her return to Manchester cruelly shattered any dreams of a happy reunion. Determined that her childhood experiences should in some way give meaning to her life, Judy has worked tirelessly to help children in need back in South Africa in the very place she had been treated to such abuse herself. She has opened 7 centres to date.

A few years ago, Alice Steinbach, a Pulitzer prize winning journalist decided to take a break from her life. She took a leave from her job, friends and family to go on a European journey of self-discovery, and her first book, Without Reservations, was the exquisite result of that trip. But once Steinbach had opened the door to a new way of living, she found herself unwilling to return to her old routine. She left her job and went travelling again, only this time her objective was not so much one of self-discovery as it was a reaching out. She wanted to learn, by taking lessons and courses, but also by connecting to and learning from the people she would encounter along the way. Choosing exactly where to go and what to study turned out to be harder than she'd anticipated, but Steinbach found herself repeatedly drawn to the interests and fantasies of her youth. And so her lifelong fascination with writing, animals, gardening, and food led her to study dog training in Scotland, writing in Prague, gardening in Provence, calligraphy and flower arranging in Kyoto, music in Cuba, cooking in Paris and Jane Austen in Exeter. Her weeks and months spent with fellow students of all ages are, as she'd hoped, every bit as educational as her courses. And studying side by side with people preparing for careers in these various fields gives Steinbach a second chance at some roads not taken - a chance to reconnect with her past, when so many options were still open to her. In pursuing interests she's never had time to fully explore, she finds that her sense of curiosity is as strong as it ever was, and, as she discovers during the course of this wonderful trip, we are never too old to learn.

Maid's Tale CORONET

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Born in 1910, Rose Plummer grew up in an East End slum; she knew at first hand a soot-blackened world, lit by candles and oil lamps, where you slept in your clothes - if you hadn't already been sewn into them for the winter - and fought an unending battle with hunger and bed bugs. At its best, life was lived on the bustling, noisy streets where fish sellers jostled with hurdy-gurdy men, organ grinders and street fighters, where children dodged between the wheels of horse-drawn carts and where money could still be made by mudlarks and the rag and bone man. At the age of fifteen, Rose left the noise and squalor of Hoxton and started work as a live-in maid at a house in the West End. Despite the poverty of her childhood, nothing could have prepared her for the long hours, the backbreaking work and the harshness of this new world; a world in which servants were treated as if they were less than human. It was a world in which Rose found herself working from six in the morning till nine at night in a house where the only unheated bedroom was the one she slept in. Here and in later, grander, houses Rose had to endure the strict hierarchy of the servants' world where the maid was expected to put up with sex pests, deranged employers, verbal and even physical abuse. But however difficult life became, Rose found something to laugh about, and her remarkable spirit and gift for friendship shines through in her memories of a now-vanished world. This is upstairs downstairs as it really was.
