Everyone has a dream of their perfect house - in the heart of the countryside, or perhaps a stately residence in the middle of a wonderful city? For Kate Hutchinson, the move to Suffolk from the tiny, noisy London terrace she shares with her husband Simon and their two young children was almost enough to make her dreams come true. Space, peace, a measured, rural pace of life have a far greater pull for Kate than the constantly overflowing in-tray on her desk at work. Moving in with her mother-in-law must surely be only a temporary measure before the estate agent's details of the perfect house fall through the letterbox. But when Kate, out walking one evening, stumbles upon the house of her dreams, a beautiful place, full of memories, it is tantalizingly out of her reach. Its owner is the frail elderly Agnes, whose story - as it unravels - echoes so much of Kate's own. And Kate comes to realize how uncertain and unsettling even a life built on dreams can be - wherever you are, at whatever time you are living and whoever you are with.

No writer can rival the sheer storytelling power ofNew York Timesbestselling author Virginia Henley, whose many books have earned a place on her readers' shelves and in their hearts. Now, in her hardcover debut, she brings us the tale of a man whose need for vengeance rules his heart and the woman who may prove to be his most effective weapon of revenge, or the instrument of his destruction. After five long years on a prison ship, Sean O'Toole, Earl of Kildare, makes his escape in order to exact his plan of revenge upon the Englishman who killed his brother and framed Sean for the crime. While imprisoned, Sean honed his body to rock-hard perfection, steeled his will against all sentiment, and filled his mind with thoughts of retribution against the man he had hated for years. But at night his dreams were filled with memories of his enemy's daughter--the half-Irish, half-English Emerald, whose fiery beauty had beguiled him when they met, and whose bold and fearless spirit he had never forgotten. His memories of Emerald are not enough to prevent Sean from going through with his plan to use her as a pawn in his quest for vengeance. His scheme: to kidnap Emerald and bring her to his home, where he will keep her long enough to sully her reputation and bring disgrace upon her family. Sean is shocked when, instead of the defiant temptress he once knew, the memory of whom kept him alive for five long years, he finds his quarry is now a timid, fearful woman afraid of her own shadow. Has she too become a victim of her father's corruption? Determined to go through with his plans, he steals Emerald away to his family's estate, where he slowly gains her trust--only to betray her with his lies. Locked in prisons of their own making, Emerald and Sean must find a way to break free of their bonds, or risk losing themselves--and each other--forever.

WHEN THE MARINES decided to buy a helicopter-airplane hybrid "tiltrotor" called the V-22 Osprey, they saw it as their dream machine. The tiltrotor was the aviation equivalent of finding the Northwest Passage: an aircraft able to take off, land, and hover with the agility of a helicopter yet fly as fast and as far as an airplane. Many predicted it would reshape civilian aviation. The Marines saw it as key to their very survival. By 2000, the Osprey was nine years late and billions over budget, bedeviled by technological hurdles, business rivalries, and an epic political battle over whether to build it at all. Opponents called it one of the worst boondoggles in Pentagon history. The Marines were eager to put it into service anyway. Then two crashes killed twenty- three Marines. They still refused to abandon the Osprey, even after the Corps' own proud reputation was tarnished by a national scandal over accusations that a commander had ordered subordinates to lie about the aircraft's problems. Based on in-depth research and hundreds of interviews, The Dream Machine recounts the Marines' quarter-century struggle to get the Osprey into combat. Whittle takes the reader from the halls of the Pentagon and Congress to the war zone of Iraq, from the engineer's drafting table to the cockpits of the civilian and Marine pilots who risked their lives flying the Osprey--and sometimes lost them. He reveals the methods, motives, and obsessions of those who designed, sold, bought, flew, and fought for the tiltrotor. These stories, including never before published eyewitness accounts of the crashes that made the Osprey notorious, not only chronicle an extraordinary chapter in Marine Corps history, but also provide a fascinating look at a machine that could still revolutionize air travel.
Kellen's mother has always insisted that her only child was born male, not female, so Kellen has been raised as a boy.

When it is discovered that Gryffin is the kingdom's new Dream-Maker -- someone whose mere presence can help dreams come true -- he is whisked away to the castle, leaving Kellen behind. By now, their friendship is shading into something more. Will it endure?

In this major work of historical and political analysis, Mona Harrington examines curcial missteps and uncertainties in the American statecraft from Woodrow Wilson's time to Ronald Reagan's, and traces them to a potent myth at the center of our political thinking. It is a myth peculiarly American, a long-held belief that the troubles of society can be traced to some specific "evil"--be it a profiteering in munitions, or the multinational corporation, or the communist conspiracy, or wasteful social programs--and that by smiting the evil we can achieve social well-being for all. The author demonstrates how deeply this dream of deliverance has been rooted in American culture from the very beginnings of the nation--in the concept of a society in which conflicts between groups of widely divergent interests can be resolved without undeserved loss to any party. We see the consequences of this belief in our continuing tendency to oversimplify issues both domestic and foreign--and in our obsessive expenditure of public energy on the search for and pursuit of the evil to be exorcised. The dilemma is further exacerbated because the country's three major economic-interest groups--industrial wage earners, industrial owners and managers, and the cluster of interests tied to local economies--are prone to demonologies as widely divergent as their interests, and there can seldom be agreement as to the identity of the evil. How this bondage to the dream of deliverance has affected the functioning of American government--making our politics a never-ending argument whose terms have scarcely changed over the past century--is brilliant explicated. Connecting the deepest workings of statecraft to what we know about the dynamics of our own individual lives, this highly original book leads us away from a myth-driven politics and toward a difficult encounter with reality, toward liberation from the endless search for the serpent whose defeat with return us to Eden, toward a national recognition that in conditions of conflict it is not always possibly for all to emerge as winners, toward the shaping of a politics that will enable us to allocate in the most decent possible way the losses that we cannot avoid.
Jean Mark Gawron creates a haunting world where information is God and artificial intelligences have joined ranks with misfit hackers to undermine a fascist state. Dream of Glass is an adventure in cyberspace and a mystery, too, that pursues the timeless question of what an individual is.
