THE WARDROBE MISTRESS is Meghan Masterson's fascinating and visceral debut, an inside look at Marie Antoinette's luxurious life in Versailles remarkably juxtaposed against life in third estate as the French Revolution gains strength. A propulsive exploration of love, loyalty, danger, and intrigue...not to be missed. It's Giselle Aubry's first time at court in Versailles. At sixteen, she is one of Marie Antoinette's newest undertirewomen, and in awe of the glamorous queen and her opulent palace life. A budding designer, it's a dream come true to work with the beautiful fabrics and jewels in the queen's wardrobe. But every few weeks she returns home to visit her family in Paris where rumors of revolution are growing stronger. From her position working in the royal household, Giselle is poised to see both sides of the revolutionary tensions erupting throughout Paris. When her uncle, a retired member of the secret du roi, a spy ring that worked for the old King, Louis XV, suggests that she casually report the Queen’s actions back to him as a game, she leaps at the chance. Spying seems like an adventure and an exciting way to privately support the revolution taking the countryside by storm. She also enjoys using her insight from Versailles in lively debates with Léon Gauvain, the handsome and idealistic revolutionary who courts her. But as the revolution continues to gain momentum, and Giselle grows closer to the Queen, becoming one of the few trusted servants, she finds herself dangerously torn. Violence is escalating; she must choose where her loyalty truly lies, or risk losing everything...maybe even her head.

Nach "Der König von Narnia" (BA 11/05) gelingt C. Rendel und W. Hohlbein auch für diesen Band eine flüssige Neuübersetzung, die die bildreiche Sprache des Autors kongenial überträgt. Erzählende Passagen und insbesondere die Dialoge treffen stimmig den modernen Sprachgebrauch. In dieser Einführung der "Chroniken von Narnia" gelangen Digory und Polly mittels magischer Ringe in einen Wald, dessen Teiche zu anderen Welten führen. Sie erleben, wie der Löwe Aslan das Land Narnia zum Leben erweckt, aber auch, wie durch Digorys Verhalten die Hexe Jadis dorthin gelangt. Verbunden durch manche Figuren und kleine Details, ist vorliegender Band 1 der "Chroniken ..." zum Verständnis von Band 2 "Der König von Narnia" nicht notwendig. Dennoch sollte wegen der Nachfrage sowie der Vollständigkeit dieser schwächere Band vorhanden sein. Die von U. Neckenauer gekonnt übersetzen Ausgaben bei Ueberreuter (zuletzt 2002, ISBN 3800020432) und Brendow (zuletzt 5. Auflage 2005, ISBN 3865060811) müssen nicht ausgetauscht werden. Bei Neukauf oder Ersatz sollten jedoch die Neuübersetzungen bevorzugt werden.. Trickreich verlockt Onkel Andrew Digory und Polly, magische Ringe anzuziehen, mit deren Hilfe sie in einen Wald gelangen, dessen Teiche in andere Welten führen. Dort erleben die beiden, wie der Löwe Aslan die Welt von Narnia erschafft, aber auch, wie Digory die Hexe Jadis dorthin bringt. Ab 10.

To make matters worse, Charlie Grice, one of the great stage actors of the day, has suddenly died. His widow Joan, the wardrobe mistress, is beside herself with grief. Then one night she discovers Gricey’s secret. Plunged into a dark new world, Joan realises that though fascism might hide, it never dies. Her war isn’t over after all.

New Statesman 'Wonderfully sinister ... a delight ... you are in for a thrilling ride.'

In the clay-rich hills of the newly founded state of West Virginia, two families tentatively come together to rebuild a war-torn brickmaking business. Ewan McKay has immigrated to West Virginia with his aunt and uncle, promising to trade his skills in the clay business for financial help. Uncle Hugh purchases a brickmaking operation from a Civil War widow and her daughter, and it's Ewan's job to get the company up and running again. Ewan seeks help from Laura, the former owner's daughter, and he quickly feels a connection with her, but she's being courted by another man--a lawyer with far more social clout and money than Ewan. Resolving that he'll make the brickworks enough of a success that he can become a partner in the business and be able to afford to bring his sisters over from Ireland, Ewan pours all his energy into the new job. But when Hugh signs a bad business deal, all Ewan's hard work is put in jeopardy. As his hopes for the future crumble, Laura reveals something surprising. Can she help him save the brickworks, and will Ewan finally get a shot at winning her heart?
