Caravan to Xanadu: A Novel of Marco Polo

by Edison Marshall

[from inside flaps] "In the Thirteenth Century, Mediterranean Europe Was in a passionate ferment--restlessly reaching out for new lands, new achievements, new exploits. And Marco Polo, the Venetian, was its brightest symbol of adventure. EDISON MARSHALL--in recreating this astonishing figure--has worked from life, choosing a real person to be his hero, scrupulously following the known facts of his career. But to the flat and clouded portrait left behind by history, he has given full-blooded, full-dimensioned life. The story reads as though Marco Polo had left another journal in response to the urgent query: "Did you sometimes laugh? Did you never weep? Did no fires kindle your liver when you gazed upon the beautiful maidens of the Kashmir?" Here is an intimate record of the hardships that beset him, the deadly hatred that pursued him, the passionate devotion that brought him triumphant to the palace of the Khan. From the father who scorned and denied Marco Polo, to the unbelievably lovely slave girl who shared the tumult of his heart, Edison Marshall has filled this exciting romance with utterly real human beings. And such is the magic of his pen, that one is indeed transported to those reckless, lavish days, to share the personal adventures of Marco Polo and his caravan as they journey perilously to the fabulous lands of Kublai Khan. Without question, Caravan to Xanadu is Edison Marshall's finest novel, a stirring tale by a master storyteller. BOOK CLUB EDITION"

The Blind Search (Jesse Falkenstein #8)

by Lesley Egan

[From the dust jacket flaps:] Jesse Falkenstein was a prosperous Los Angeles lawyer who didn't need to waste his time playing private eye for some clients who didn't have a legal leg to stand on--or even much money to make it worth his while. But the Lanning case was different. Two nice people had brought up an abandoned child for six years, only to see her legally kidnapped by her unfit young mother, who supposedly had had a sudden change of heart. Something seemed wrong about the case from the beginning--from what Falkenstein could learn, Nonie Johnson just wasn't the maternal type. Her latest job had been at the Tropico Club, a sleazy topless bar, and her friends there claimed she had been about to ditch one boyfriend and take off on a Caribbean cruise with another. And then she had suddenly dropped out of sight. So far, the search for Nonie Johnson had yielded nothing but a series of wild goose chases. And when her former boyfriend turns up murdered, Falkenstein begins to suspect that there is more involved than a simple case of child custody. He had to find Nonie Johnson fast, and he was going to need help. Fortunately, he did have two aces up his sleeve: a brother-in-law on the L.A.P.D. who might be able to sniff out the truth in some very orthodox ways, and some rather unorthodox psychic acquaintances who had their own ways of searching out clues.

Alice in Wonderland

by Lewis Carroll

This selection of Carroll's works includes Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, both containing the famous illustrations by Sir John Tenniel. No greater books for children have ever been written. The simple language, dreamlike atmosphere, and fantastical characters are as appealing to young readers today as ever they were. Meanwhile, however, these apparently simple stories have become recognised as adult masterpieces, and extraordinary experiments, years ahead of their time, in Modernism and Surrealism. Through wordplay, parody and logical and philosophical puzzles, Carroll engenders a variety of sub-texts, teasing, ominous or melancholy. For all the surface playfulness there is meaning everywhere. The author reveals himself in glimpses.

Experiencing the God Who Is: Momentary Glimpses; Bright Reflections

by Winslow E. Parker

These are the mystical meanderings of the author in the God who is Creator, sustainer, Lord and Friend. They are the writings, first for himself, then, later, for a number of small online groups of fellow believers. Spanning twenty years, they reflect the changes and growth in relationship as he moved from rules to experience, from Law to relationship. Quirky, thoughtful, iconoclastic by turn, each is a small window into his greatest journey. Not meant to convince or coerce, they are, rather, an invitation, a challenge and a mirror.
