Rediscover this classic favorite from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber. The alarm on Hallie McCarthy’s biological clock is buzzing away. She’s hitting the big three-0 and there’s no prospect of marriage, no man in sight. Hallie’s an organized, goal-setting kind of person, so she makes a plan and gives herself a year to meet Mr. Knight in Shining Armor. But all her dates are disasters. (There’s the cheapskate and the sex fiend and…well, never mind.) Too bad she can’t just fall for her good-looking neighbor, Steve Marris. He’s definitely not her type. Anyway, Steve’s busy trying to win back his ex-wife, who’s busy getting married—but not to Steve. Life would be so much simpler if he could fall for someone else. Like…Hallie. They’re friends, though—and sometimes friends become lovers. Sometimes friends become more… Originally published in 1997

Amerika, Anfang der achtziger Jahre, ein College an der Ostküste. Madeleine Hanna, begeisterte Leserin von Roland Barthes, schreibt eine literaturwissenschaftliche Arbeit über die «Liebeshandlung» viktorianischer Romane. Während sie über den uralten Beweggründen des menschlichen Herzens brütet, bricht das wirkliche Leben in Gestalt zweier junger Männer über sie herein. Leonard Bankhead, charismatischer Einzelgänger mit scheinbar unerschöpflichem Elan, taucht Tabak kauend in einem Semiotik-Seminar auf, und schon bald verstrickt sich Madeleine in eine erotisch und intellektuell aufgeladene Beziehung. Zur selben Zeit lässt sich ihr alter Freund Mitchell Grammaticus wieder blicken, besessen von dem Gedanken, Madeleine sei für ihn bestimmt und er für sie. Wenig später, den Collegeabschluss in der Tasche, werden alle drei gezwungen, vieles in neuem Licht zu sehen. Leonard und Madeleine ziehen in die malerische Dünenlandschaft von Cape Cod; Mitchell, in Gedanken oft bei Madeleine, reist mit einem Rucksack voller Bücher über christliche Mystik bis nach Indien, stellt sich den Fragen nach dem Sinn des Lebens, der Existenz Gottes und dem, was Liebe ist. Gibt es die großen Liebesgeschichten des 19. Jahrhunderts nicht mehr, heute, in Zeiten von sexueller Freiheit, Eheverträgen, Scheidungen? Indem Jeffrey Eugenides eine totgeglaubte Tradition erneuert, meldet er sich als einer der bedeutendsten Autoren der amerikanischen Gegenwartsliteratur zurück.

A Country Christmas might be the best Christmas of all… Buffalo Valley The town of Buffalo Valley, North Dakota—a community in farm country—is undergoing a revival. Vaughn Kyle, who's just out of the army, is looking for a place to live, a life to live. While he's waiting for his ambitious fiancée to make up her mind, he visits Buffalo Valley one snowy day and meets a young woman named Carrie Hendrickson. As they grow close, Vaughn has to question his feelings for the woman he thought he loved. He knows then that he wants to stay in Buffalo Valley, where life is about family and friends—not money and social standing. And not just at Christmas, but every day of the year… Return to Promise Rancher Cal Patterson and his wife, Jane—known as Dr. Texas—have recently separated, with Jane going back to her childhood home in California with their children. Now Cal, alone on his ranch, is forced to confront what he really wants in his life, what he needs. Jane is confronting the same questions. How seriously does Cal take his marriage vows? And how important is Promise to Jane? Is there hope for a reconciliation—in time for Christmas?

It was the year that changed everything. When Susannah Nelson turned eighteen, she said goodbye to her boyfriend, Jake—and never saw him again. She never saw her brother again, either. Doug died in a car accident that same year. Now, at fifty, she finds herself regretting the paths not taken. Long married, a mother and a teacher, she should be happy. But she feels there's something missing in her life, although she doesn't know exactly what. Not only that, she's balancing the demands of an aging mother and a temperamental twenty-year-old daughter. Her mother, Vivan, a recent widow, is having difficulty coping and living alone, so Susannah goes home to Colville, Washington. In returning to her parents' house, her girlhood friends and the garden she's always loved, she also returns to the past—and the choices she made back then. What she discovers is that things are not as they once seemed. Some paths are dead ends. But some gardens remain beautiful….

Papacy Monarchy and Marriage 860 1600

This analysis of royal marriage cases across seven centuries explains how and how far popes controlled royal entry into and exits from their marriages. In the period between c.860 and 1600, the personal lives of kings became the business of the papacy. d'Avray explores the rationale for papal involvement in royal marriages and uses them to analyse the structure of church-state relations. The marital problems of the Carolingian Lothar II, of English kings - John, Henry III, and Henry VIII - and other monarchs, especially Spanish and French, up to Henri IV of France and La Reine Margot, have their place in this exploration of how canon law came to constrain pragmatic political manoeuvring within a system increasingly rationalised from the mid-thirteenth century on. Using documents presented in the author's Dissolving Royal Marriages, the argument brings out hidden connections between legal formality, annulments, and dispensations, at the highest social level.

Bestselling historian Alison Weir brings Elizabeth I to vivid life in a novel of intrigue, sex, plots, mysteries and tragedies, amid all the colour and pageantry of the Tudor court. '[Weir] gets right inside the head of the Virgin Queen. The reader has a blissful sense of seeing history as it happens.' - Kate Saunders, The Times It was an affair that shocked the world. Elizabeth I is the most sought-after bride in Europe. But though she is formidably intelligent, brave and tempestuous, she is desperately insecure. The tragic events in her past mean she cannot give herself to any man, and yet she relishes the thrill of the chase, the lure of forbidden fruit. And so, using sex and high-powered diplomacy, she plays what becomes known as the 'Marriage Game', dangling suitors to keep them friendly to her kingdom, while holding them off indefinitely. But playing this tantalising game with the married Robert Dudley, the son and grandson of traitors, could cost her the throne...

The Committee is pleased with the relatively high take-up of Forced Marriage Protection Orders-293 issued between November 2008 and February 2011-but disappointed at a lack of agency follow-up to ensure compliance. In the rare instances where breaches are discovered, not enough action is taken, with only one individual jailed. It recommends that the Government, while maintaining this civil route, also criminalises forced marriage, as the Prime Minister promised to consider while in Opposition. This would send a stronger message that forced marriage will not be tolerated. Our predecessors found that many school authorities were reluctant to take action to protect their pupils against forced marriage, in part because they feared accusations of racism. Evidence suggests this situation has not changed and the Secretary of State must take a more pro-active approach to remind schools of their statutory responsibilities and make use of the inspection regime to improve performance. The Committee has repeatedly raised the plight of estranged or abused partners who are under pressure from their families to sign a request for their spouses to have indefinite leave to remain in the UK, or who simply want to be kept informed of the progress of their spouse's application, but are refused this information by the UK Border Agency because of data protection. During its inquiry, the Information Commission confirmed that there are situations in which data protection considerations can legitimately be overridden and the Committee therefore urges the UK Border Agency to encourage staff to use their discretion in these kinds of cases

This translation of 65 pieces from Qian Zhongshu's Guanzhui bian (Limited Views) makes available for the first time in English a representative selection from Qian's massive four-volume collection of essays and reading notes on the classics of early Chinese literature. First published in 1979, it has been hailed as one of the most insightful and comprehensive treatments of themes and motifs in early Chinese writing to appear in this century. Scholar, novelist, and essayist Qian Zhongshu (b. 1910) is arguably contemporary China's foremost man of letters, and Limited Views is recognized as the culmination of his study of literature in both the Chinese and the Western traditions.
