The Earl of Beaconswood wanted his beloved step-granddaughter to be married and settled happily before he died, but when he realized it was not going to happen, he amended his will. He left his home to Julia on condition she accepted an offer from one of her five step-cousins within a month. They all court her and offer her marriage—all, that is, except Daniel, the new earl, who has always disapproved of Julia's wild ways just as she had always despised his stuffiness. Will he offer before the month is over? More to the point, will she accept if he does?

No woman will have Ben without a proper bachelor's suit . . . and the tailor refuses to make him one. Back from war with a nameless enemy, Ben finds that his mother is dead and his family home has been reassigned by the state. As if that isn't enough, he must now find a wife, or he'll be made a civil servant and given a permanent spot in one of the city's oppressive factories. Meanwhile, Meeks, a foreigner who lives in the park and imagines he's a member of the police, is hunted by the overzealous Brothers of Mercy. Meeks' survival depends on his peculiar friendship with a police captain--but will that be enough to prevent his execution at the annual Independence Day celebration? A dark satire rendered with the slapstick humor of a Buster Keaton film, Julia Holmes' debut marries the existentialism of Fyodor Dostoevsky's """"Notes from Underground"""" to the strange charm of a Haruki Murakami novel. """"Meeks"""" portrays a world at once hilarious and disquieting, in which frustrated revolutionaries and hopeful youths suffer alongside the lost and the condemned, just for a chance at the permanent bliss of marriage and a slice of sugar-frosted Independence Day cake. Julia Holmes was born in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, and grew up in the Middle East, Texas, and New York, where she is currently an assistant editor at """"Rolling Stone."""" She is a graduate of Columbia University's MFA program in fiction.

Annexed by France in 1481, Provence still retains its own distinct culture, traditions, and language. While many primarily French authors, like Emile Zola, have dabbled in Provencal literature, this book is dedicated to those whose lives and writing careers have been devoted to this temperate and beautiful land. Included are analyses of the important literary contributions of groups or schools, like the Troubadours and the Felibres; poets like Frederic Mistral and Henri Bosco; playwrights such as Marcel Pagnol; novelists like Alphonse Daudet; and more recent writers such as Marie Mauron and Jean-Claude Izzo. Photographs of many of the authors illustrate the text, which includes English translations of extracts, so that even readers unfamiliar with the language of Provence can enjoy its literature. This introduction is ideal both for those who have enjoyed the work of the featured authors before and for those who are yet to be exposed to the charms of Provencal.

This book covers Julia’s life, and charts her travels throughout the Empire from Aswan to York during a period of profound upheaval, and seeks the truth about this woman who inspired such extreme and contrasting views, exposing the instability of our sources about her, and characterizing a sympathetic, courageous, intelligent, and important woman. This book contains a fresh re-assessment of the one of the most significant figures of her time and questions: • Was Julia more powerful than earlier empresses? • Did she really promote despotism? • How seriously is her literary circle to be taken? As part of a dynasty which used force and violence to preserve its rule, she was distrusted by its subjects; as a Syrian, she was the object of prejudice; as a woman with power, she was resented. On the other hand, Domna was the centre of a literary circle considered highly significant by nineteenth-century admirers.

When Susannah McKittrick leaves Nantucket for the boomtown of Seattle, she is hardly looking to strike it rich; she is headed west to care for a newborn left motherless after Susannah's cousin died. Although the rigorous trip depletes all of her savings, Susannah is certain she is doing the right thing. She is less sure when she meets the infant's father, wealthy businessman Aubrey Fairgrieve -- who seems embittered toward love and marriage, and indifferent toward the precious baby Susannah is so eager to care for. Gradually, Susannah discovers that Aubrey's marriage to her cousin was far from perfect -- and she comes to see the brusque but handsome man in a new light. But when Aubrey makes her a most practical offer, it is a far cry from the heartfelt proposal Susannah desires. If he truly wants to win her hand, he will have to learn to trust once more -- and sweep her away with the bold passion of a man in love.

A Masked Deception is the digital reissue of a previously published and long out-of-print novel by New York Times Bestselling author Mary Balogh. Margaret Wells has been deeply, hopelessly in love with the handsome, dashing Richard Adair, Earl of Brampton, since she met him at a masquerade ball six years ago. Passion had flared between them then, but she had fled before the time for unmasking. Now Richard merely needs a wife to give him an heir, and the quiet, demure Miss Wells seems as suitable as anyone else. Margaret, longing to ignite some sort of passion in her dull marriage, wonders what would happen if she were to become that masked enchantress once more and met her husband by chance in some secluded, romantic setting. Little does Margaret suspect that Richard has never forgotten the nameless charmer for whom he had searched in vain for weeks and months after the masquerade ball. And little does she suspect that he is falling in love with his wife.

Courting Communities focuses on the writing and oratory of nineteenth-century African-American women whose racial uplift projects troubled the boundaries of race, nation and gender. In particular, it reexamines the politics of gender in nationalist movements and black women's creative response within and against both state and insurgent black nationalist discourses. Courting Communities highlights the ideas and rhetorical strategies of female activists considered to be less important than the prominent male nationalists. Yet their story is significant precisely because it does not fit into the pre-established categories of nationalism and leadership bequeathed to us from the past.

THEY ONLY CHANGED HIS NAME is a fictionalized presentation of selected biographical events in the life of Bernard E. Baumbach (1892-1981). It begins with an imaginative characterization of the circumstances that provoked his then unmarried father to emigrate from Germany in 1883 with an older brother. They dreamed of becoming wealthy in the developing oil fields of Northwestern Pennsylvania. When he was seventeen years old, Bernard ventured to Central California with Earl, a double-cousin. They, too, had dreamed of becoming wealthy. For them, it was to be as employees of The Standard Oil Company of California. Their adjustments to their new circumstances were eased because of the help provided by Bernard’s older brother, Albert, who had made that same trip two years earlier. The story chronicles his life as he matured into manhood which, at first, was a foreign country. He grew up in a richly religious German neighborhood on the outskirts of Oil City, PA. Central California was strange also because there were no wooded hills and rushing rivers. The desert-like weather was yet another contending factor and the culture of California that provoked individuality and independence was daunting. He joined the U.S. Marine Corps on May 22, 1918 and served as a corporal in the Shore Patrol in France for four month prior to the Armistice and for eight months following. Three months later, he married Cordulla Julia Charlotte Becker of Pasadena, CA. He continued with Standard Oil of California until his retirement while garnering an exemplary record for safety as a driller. The centerpiece of the story, however, is that of family: his family on ‘Dutch Hill’ in the Cornplanter Township in PA; Julia’s family in Pasadena, CA; and Julia’s and his family of five children in Anaheim, CA.
