Sozinha com Mr. Darcy

by Abigail Reynolds Maria Regina Barbuto

Elizabeth Bennet não pode imaginar nada pior do que ficar retida por uma tempestade de neve, em uma pequena cabana, com o orgulhoso e desagradável Mr. Darcy. Mas estar presa lá por dias – e noites – com um Mr. Darcy ferido e confuso, que continua a dizer as coisas mais estranhas sobre ela, é ainda pior.

Spa

by Olivia De Grove

Seeking rejuvenation and rest, six very different people converge at a lush Caribbean spa on the island of St. Christoph and find more than they had bargained for: mystery, intrigue, and romance. Successful and single journalist Joyce Redmond, who is on assignment to root out the nitty gritty on the other guests, has been so busy working on her career that she has forgotten to work on her life. Cliff Eastman, the romantic over-the-hill movie star and heartthrob, is watching his career fade through the bottom of a bottle. Cathy Stewart, the overweight, frustrated housewife, who cringes each time her husband calls her his "big mama," is intent on finding a way to shed that image. Maxine Kraft, married for twenty-five years needs only a little more courage to face the world as a single woman. Finally, there is Belle Taylor and her famous teen idol daughter, Regina, who both need to find a way to stop hating each other. Fortunately, the Spa at St. Christoph has something for everyone. Yet, behind the luxurious façade of this retreat awaits a mystery for which they had not bargained.

Space

by Emily Sue Harvey

Emily Sue Harvey's work touches readers in profound ways. Coffee Time Romance called Song of Renewal, "a must-read book for anyone doing a little soul searching." Of Flavors, Black Diamond's Book Reviews said, "I loved everything about this book! This is just an all around excellent book that is sure to bring memories back from times when life was a lot more simple." And, in speaking of Homefires, The Book Tree said, "Emily Sue Harvey has now become a new favorite author for me after reading this book."Now, in Space, Emily Sue delivers us a deeply moving story of a family on the brink. Dan and Deede Stowe have worked for years, planning and saving for their idyllic retirement years. Just when they finally are about to realize their dream, their adult, recovering drug-addict daughter, Faith, moves back in with them and everything changes. Their "miracle child", complete with druggie baggage, upsets the tranquil balance of the Stowe's existence. Private romantic moments evaporate. Faith's endless needs intrude hour by hour, devouring both their finances, their emotions, and most crucially, their space. In turn, Faith finds herself bereft of everything she cherished most, her health, her marriage, her child, her family, her reputation and, most of all, a space to call her own.Amid chaotic challenges, all three battle to find peace with each other, a harmony that doggedly eludes them. For the sake of family solidarity, each is forced to sacrifice elemental components of self, until desperation turns them one against the other. Will love be enough to turn the tide? Is it strong enough to warm again hearts grown cold? Space is a vivid, candid, and life-affirming story from a masterful storyteller of the heart.

Space and Narrative in the Nineteenth-Century British Historical Novel

by Tom Bragg

Demonstrating that nineteenth-century historical novelists played their rational, trustworthy narrators against shifting and untrustworthy depictions of space and place, Tom Bragg argues that the result was a flexible form of fiction that could be modified to reflect both the different historical visions of the authors and the changing aesthetic tastes of the reader. Bragg focuses on Scott, William Harrison Ainsworth, and Edward Bulwer Lytton, identifying links between spatial representation and the historical novel's multi-generic rendering of history and narrative. Even though their understanding of history and historical process could not be more different, all writers employed space and place to mirror narrative, stimulate discussion, interrogate historical inquiry, or otherwise comment beyond the rational, factual narrator's point of view. Bragg also traces how landscape depictions in all three authors' works inculcated heroic masculine values to show how a dominating theme of the genre endures even through widely differing versions of the form. In taking historical novels beyond the localized questions of political and regional context, Bragg reveals the genre's relevance to general discussions about the novel and its development. Nineteenth-century readers of the novel understood historical fiction to be epic and serious, moral and healthful, patriotic but also universal. Space and Narrative in the Nineteenth-Century British Historical Novel takes this readership at its word and acknowledges the complexity and diversity of the form by examining one of its few continuous features: a flexibly metaphorical valuation of space and place.
