Summary A fragile peace reigns in Wessex, Mercia and East Anglia. King Alfred's son Edward and formidable daughter, Aethelflaed, rule the kingdoms. But all around the restless Northmen, eyeing the rich lands and wealthy churches, are mounting raids. Uhtred of Bebbanburg, the kingdoms' greatest warrior, controls northern Mercia from the strongly fortified city of Chester. But forces are gathering against him. Northmen allied to the Irish, led by the fierce warrior Ragnall Ivarson, are soon joined by the Northumbrians, and their strength could prove overwhelming. Despite the gathering threat, both Edward and Aethelflaed are reluctant to move out of the safety of their fortifications. But with Uhtred's own daughter married to Ivarson's brother, who can be trusted? In the struggle between family and loyalty, between personal ambition and political commitment, there will be no easy path. But a man with a warrior's courage may be able to find it.

Title In a different key : the story of autism

New Enterprise feed - 9 hours 53 min ago
Author Donvan, John (John Joseph), 1955- author.
Edition: First edition.
Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Books
Summary "Nearly seventy-five years ago, Donald Triplett of Forest, Mississippi became the first child diagnosed with autism. Beginning with his family's odyssey, In a Different Key tells the extraordinary story of this often misunderstood condition, and of the civil rights battles waged by the families of those who have it. Unfolding over decades, it is a beautifully rendered history of ordinary people determined to secure a place in the world for those with autism--by liberating children from dank institutions, campaigning for their right to go to school, challenging expert opinion on what it means to have autism, and persuading society to accept those who are different. This is also a story of fierce controversies--from the question of whether there is truly an autism "epidemic, " and whether vaccines played a part in it; to scandals involving "facilitated communication, " one of many treatments that have proved to be blind alleys; to stark disagreements about whether scientists should pursue a cure for autism."-- Provided by publisher.

Title Their promised land : my grandparents in love and war

New Enterprise feed - 9 hours 53 min ago
Author Buruma, Ian, author.
Publication Date(s) 2015-2016
Format: Audio disc
Summary A family history of surpassing beauty and power, Their Promised Land is Ian Buruma's account of his grandparents' enduring love through the terror and separation of two world wars. Ian Buruma's maternal grandparents were born into the same world: children of German-Jewish emigre stockbrokers living in London. But at the demand of his parents, Ian's grandfather broke up with his fiancee by letter just before leaving for the western front during World War I. It was the first great shock their romance would suffer, but their love would survive it. Bernard ("Bun") and Winifred ("Win") Schlesinger were married for more than sixty years, but the heart of the story Buruma tells with characteristic grace in Their Promised Land lies within the span of the two world wars. This is the moving story of an assimilated Jewish family in unhappy times. Never able entirely to take national belonging for granted, they were more British than the British. With the outbreak of war in 1939, the Schlesingers began to face the real prospect that the Nazis could defeat England and place their family's survival in question. Nonetheless, they helped twelve Jewish children escape from Nazi Germany and gave them new lives in Britain. Drawn into service during World War II, Bun was stationed in India as a military doctor. No matter what else befell them, Win and Bernard sustained a remarkably consistent stream of letters back and forth between England and India, averaging a letter every other day, and filling their correspondence with vivid accounts of their respective spheres of activity. Back home, Win struggled through wartime privation and the blitz to hold her family together with courage and imagination. Their Promised Land is Ian Buruma's spellbinding homage to the sustaining power of a family's love and devotion through very dark days.

Summary "Ester Nilsson is a sensible person in a sensible relationship. Until the day she is asked to give a lecture on famous artist Hugo Rask. The man himself is in the audience, intrigued and clearly delighted by her fascination with him. When the two meet afterward, she is spellbound. Ester's life is then intrinsically linked to this meeting and the chain of events that unfolds. She leaves her boyfriend and throws herself into an imaginary relationship with Hugo. She falls deeply in love, and he consumes her thoughts. Indeed, in her own mind she's sure that she and Hugo are a couple. Slowly and painfully Ester comes to realize that her perception of the relationship is different from his. She's a woman who prides herself on having a rational and analytical mind, but in the face of her overpowering feelings for Hugo, she is too clever and too honest for her own good. Bitingly funny and darkly fascinating, Willful Disregard is a story about total and desperate devotion, and how willingly we betray ourselves in the pursuit of love"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary "Noah wants to go home. A seemingly easy request from most four year olds. But as Noah's single-mother, Janie, knows, nothing with Noah is ever easy. One day the pre-school office calls and says Janie needs to come in to talk about Noah, and no, not later, now - and life as she knows it stops. For Jerome Anderson, life as he knows it has stopped. A deadly diagnosis has made him realize he is approaching the end of his life. His first thought - I'm not finished yet. Once a shining young star in academia, a graduate of Yale and Harvard, a professor of psychology, he threw it all away because of an obsession. Anderson became the laughing stock of his peers, but he didn't care - something had to be going on beyond what anyone could see or comprehend. He spent his life searching for that something else. And with Noah, he thinks he's found it. Soon Noah, Janie and Anderson will find themselves knocking on the door of a mother whose son has been missing for eight years - and when that door opens, all of their questions will be answered. Sharon Guskin has written a captivating, thought-provoking novel that explores what we regret in the end of our lives and hope for in the beginning, and everything in between. In equal parts a mystery and a testament to the profound connection between a child and parent, THE FORGETTING TIME marks the debut of a major new talent"-- Provided by publisher.
