About The Book
Set in 1945, The English Patient explores the lives of four very disparate war torn people, a young woman and three men, who take refuge in a damaged villa north of Florence as the war retreats around them. In an upstairs room lies the badly burned English patient, alive but unable to move. His extraordinary adventures and turbulent love affair in the North African desert before the war provide the focus around which the vivid tales of his companions revolve. His very presence will forever change the destiny of those around him.

Lady Audley's Secret

Get Latest Price

About The Book Murder, mystery, mistaken identity, madness, bigamy, adultery: These were the special ingredients that made the sensation novel so delectable to the Victorian palate. Readers who devoured Lady Audley's Secret were thrilled and frightened by its inversion of the ideal Victorian heroine. Lady Audley looks like the angel-in-the-house ideal of Victorian womanhood-she is blonde, fragile, and childlike-but her behavior is distinctly villainous. At a time when Victorian women were beginning to rebel against their limited roles as wives and mothers, novels such as Lady Audley's Secret spoke to their secret longings and fantasies. Genteel women readers, slaving away as governesses in other people's families, could share the fantasy of poor Lucy, suddenly made a lady by her marriage to Sir Michael. Part detective story, part domestic drama, Lady Audley's Secret became a runaway bestseller of its era. Nearly a century and a half since it was first published, Lady Audley's Secret has lost none of its ability to disturb and captivate readers. Annotation "If I could plot like Miss Braddon, I should be the greatest novelist that ever lived."--Thackeray Editorial Reviews Mary Elizabeth Braddon (1835-1915) became a best-selling author in 1862 with Lady Audley's Secret. The twenty-seven-year-old's route to fame led from a broken home, through a clandestine seven years as an actress, to a bigamous relationship with the publisher who first revealed Lady Audley to the world as a serial in one of his magazines. Surviving scandal and critical scorn, Braddon became one of the most celebrated and respected authors of the nineteenth century.

Fisher. The sea has been in a violent rage for many days. As the winds howled and the seas churned and boiled, the ship rolled and heaved in the gigantic waves. The crew and passengers grew more and more terrified. Suddenly—as if from the blow of a mighty fist—the ship broke apart.... All were lost. All but a pastor, his wife, and four sons: the Swiss Family Robinson. Shipwrecked! Abandoned on a deserted tropical island with little more than a few simple tools—and each other—the family must use its intelligence, courage, ingenuity, and humor to survive. And each day brings yet another adventure...and danger!. Annotation Relates the fortunes of a shipwrecked family as they imaginatively adapt to life on an island with abundant animal and plant life. Editorial Reviews The illustrated edition of the classic story of the shipwrecked Robinson family and their adventures on a desert island in the South Seas.

Beautifully illustrated in color and black and white.

Aesops Fables

Get Latest Price

About The Book Aesop was born as a slave in Ancient Greece between 620 and 560 BC. During his life, a large number of fables were attributed to him, as he was a great storyteller. This collection Aesop's Fable's includes famous stories we all are familiar with, such as The Tortoise and the Hare, The Boy Who Cried Wolf and The Ant and the Grasshopper. These tales are meant to have moral lessons for children. Most of Aesop's Fables also feature animals as main characters, further making the stories beloved by children of all ages. Annotation A collection of Aesop's fables. Editorial Reviews In her first book, German artist Drr uses pencil and charcoal to illustrate a particularly imaginative selection of 17 classic fables. Although many entries are familiar, Thundershower makes room for more unusual choices. In "A Dress for the Moon,'' for example, the moon's mother complains of the moon's ever-changing size, which makes her "the despair of the very best of dressmakers!'' The retelling are graceful and, true to Aesop, do not tack on any aphoristic morals. With its sophisticated design, however, the volume lacks child appeal. Sketchy and airy, the art is more conceptual than purely narrative; the duotone presentation may obscure the visual transitions between many of the spreads. Color remains the province of the type, printed in a distractingly bright, tomato red that seems almost to vibrate against the stark white paper. All ages.

Muhammad: A Story Of The Last Prophet
Get Best Quote
About The Book In this riveting novel, beloved international bestselling author Deepak Chopra captures the spellbinding life story of the great and often misunderstood Prophet. Islam was born in a cradle of tribal turmoil, and the arrival of one God who vanquished hundreds of ancient Arabian gods changed the world forever. God reached down into the life of Muhammad, a settled husband and father, and spoke through him. Muhammad's divine and dangerous task was to convince his people to renounce their ancestral idols and superstitious veneration of multiple gods. From the first encounter, God did not leave Muhammad alone, his life was no longer his own, and with each revelation the creation of a new way of life formed and a religion was born. Muhammad didn't see himself as the son of God or as one who achieved cosmic enlightenment. His relatives and neighbors didn't part the way when he walked down the parched dirt streets of Mecca. There was no mark of divinity. Orphaned by age six, Muhammad grew up surrounded by dozens of cousins and extended family to become a trusted merchant. Muhammad saw himself as an ordinary man and that is why what happened to him is so extraordinary. Rooted in historical detail, "Muhammad" brings the Prophet to life through the eyes of those around him. A Christian hermit mystic foretells a special destiny, a pugnacious Bedouin wet nurse raises him in the desert, and a religious rebel in Mecca secretly takes the young orphan under his spiritual wing. Each voice, each chapter brings Muhammad and the creation of Islam into a new light. The angel Gabriel demands Muhammad to recite, the first convert risks his life to protect his newfound faith, and Muhammad's life is not a myth but an incredible true and surprisingly unknown story of a man and a moment that sparked a worldwide transformation.
