Bist weit weg von allen, die du kanntest. Und endlich fühlst du dich sicher. Sicher vor deiner Vergangenheit. Doch dann bekommst du ein verlockendes Angebot. Du sollst eine neue Identität annehmen. Sollst eine Person sein, der du zum Verwechseln ähnlich siehst. Und erhältst dafür ein Leben im Luxus. Eve kann diesem Angebot nicht widerstehen. Zu lange schon war sie allein. Sie geht auf in ihrer neuen Rolle als Aurora – bis seltsame Dinge geschehen. Jemand bricht in ihr Zimmer ein, ruft auf ihrem Handy an und gibt sich als Liza aus. Doch Liza hat vor drei Jahren Selbstmord begangen – in derselben Nacht, in der Aurora verschwunden ist ... »Als sie aufwacht, liegt die Stille wie eine weiche Decke über ihr. Sie öffnet die Augen und sieht weiße Fliesen. Ihr Herz beginnt zu hämmern. Eines ihrer Augen will sich nicht ganz öffnen, und als sie es berührt, ist es angeschwollen. Sie umklammert das weiße Porzellan des Waschbeckens über ihr. Der Schmerz bohrt sich wie eine Lanze in ihren Hinterkopf und lässt einen Moment lang alles schwarz werden. Sie zieht sich hoch. Im verbeulten Spiegel sieht sie eine junge Frau mit einem blauen Auge, der Wimperntusche über das Gesicht läuft. Sie braucht einen Moment, bis sie begreift, dass sie sich selbst sieht. Sie stößt die Tür auf und stolpert nach draußen.«

What caused Major General Benedict Arnold to become a traitor? ;s a question that only a few have labored over. Many aren't aware that he was ever a hero and a great patriot, but he was ... perhaps our greatest. If he had died at the battle of Saratoga, his exploits on the behalf of this country would have deemed a day of recognition; a national holiday that would have been celebrated to this day. Now some two hundred and nineteen years after the West Point incident, few other than historians, remember the man, but all know that he was a traitor. Many do not know the circumstances of his sedition, but nevertheless his name is synonymous with treason. His heroic exploits have been forgotten and all we remember is the treason. On the battlefield at Saratoga, a lone monument stands in memorial of this man, but there is no mention of his name on the engraving. This book by no means condones his treason, but explains the reason why this great man became a traitor to the country he loved. Fighting for our country's independence started longer before July 4, 1776 and Benedict Arnold was there at the very beginning where our story also begins. The seaport of New Haven Connecticut is his home and he is a prosperous young man with a family. He is loved dearly by the townspeople, adored by his children and sister. His relationship with his wife is somewhat strained as she is an extremely cold individual who seems to have drawn away from family and friends to live a secluded life within her own mind. This is the time of Lexington and Concord and Arnold, leader of the New Haven Militia and the Sons of Liberty, calls his militia to arms to aid the patriots in driving the British back to Boston. This is the beginning for Benedict's valiant career, followed by his heroics at: Ticonderoga, St. Jean, Crown Point, Kennecbec, Quebec, Montreal, Skennesboro, Valcour Bay, Ridgefield, Oriskany, and Saratoga. The leaders, both American and British, praised his military genius. The public worshiped this charismatic man, but he had many enemies. Others were jealous of his achievements and sought to discredit him at every turn. During these early years his wife dies of an unknown aliment. At the battle of Saratoga, he suffered a musket shot to his left hip shattering his bone. The leg should have been amputated, but Arnold refused, knowing he could never sit a horse again with one leg and therefore would be of no use to his beloved country. It took almost a year for the leg to heal and even so, he was in constant pain for which he took tincture of laudanum. His left leg was two inches shorter than the right. In Philadelphia, which has been taken by the British, the Loyalists are deriving joy from the British occupation. Lavish parties are enjoyed by all, but especially by Peggy Schippen, daughter of Judge Schippen. Her dream, which she feels is her destiny in life, is to marry the titled heir to British wealth. She and her lover Captain John Andre attend all the parties, but soon this will soon end as the British leave Philadelphia. Due to his unyielding leg problem, Benedict is still unable to enter into battle, as leader of Washington's left flank, a position of honor. Washington places Benedict Arnold as military governor of Philadelphia, a hot bed of Loyalist intrigue. The Americans have parties as well, and at the Second Annual Fourth of July celebration, Benedict Arnold meets Peggy Schippen and falls in love with this Loyalist beauty, once called the most beautiful woman on two continents. While Peggy is seen on the arm of General Arnold, she is secretly seeing John Andre who is now a Major and the head of British espionage in New York.

Jean Genet was one of the world’s greatest contemporary dramatists, and his last play, The Screens, is his crowning achievement. It strikes a powerful, closing chord to the formidable theatrical work that began with Deathwatch and continued, with even bolder variations, in The Maids, The Balcony, and The Blacks. Explicitly political, The Screens is set within the context of the Algerian War. The play’s cast of over fifty characters moves through seventeen scenes, the world of the living breaching the world of the dead by means of shifting the screens—the only scenery—in a brilliant tour de force of spectacle and drama.

Dr. Phineas Parkhurst Quimby (1802-1866) was a lifelong resident of Belfast, ME and a clockmaker, by trade. From the late 1840s until the time of his transition, he wrote down his own particular philosophical, psychological and metaphysical views on life, death, health, religion and the mind. His early studies of hypnosis, then called mesmerism, led him later on to develop his unique method of healing for both mental and physical affirmities. Proud of his New England heritage, passionate in his love of liberty and equality for all, outspoken in his admonitions against what he considered aristocracy and priestcraft, empathetic toward the sick and suffering, he recorded his experiences, experiments and case studies of his own life journey's explorations into humanity and spirituality, in order to leave behind, for us, what he found, for himself, to be universally applicable truths, for the benefit of all mankind. For this reason, he wrote this book. (Hardcover Edition) (700 pages)
