An ambitious, occasionally clumsy, first novel that spans the years 1979 to 2006, tracking the fortunes of four friends and their associates. There's a lot of plot detail - overall the book tries to make sense of Blairism (centre-left politics) in the England of these times, though it seems to appeal to readers who are only interested in the story. Well received on publication, the 2017 version is edited and reformatted in response to reader's comments.
She had everything money could buy.
Alison Meade is the prodigal daughter, a beautiful charismatic woman whose previous fame as a top model had once made her a household name. The village where she was born was proud of her. She was different, apart, a golden creature on whom the gods had smiled. But then she had disappeared - her face no longer on the cover of glossy magazines, her name no longer in the gossip columns. Even her family seemed ignorant of her whereabouts. The fame that had once come to Lesser Tripling, the small village on the edge of the Blackmore Vale in Dorset, evaporated.
Then, one day, as suddenly as she had left, she returned offering little explanation of her whereabouts in the past ten years. Alison's arrival acts as a catalyst on the small community, bringing hidden tensions to the fore, disrupting old loves, starting new passions. In her past there is a wound so horrific that only time can heal it: but her journey of discovery unleashes emotions which have ...

Some Chinese characters are very simple and are made of just a few strokes, while others are made of other simpler characters, which are called radicals. Radicals are simple characters that combine to create compound Chinese characters. They have various meanings and can usually help you to understand the meaning and the pronunciation of compound characters. There are around 200 radicals in the Chinese language; therefore some people compare those radicals with letters or the roots of words.
This book focuses on the above-mentioned idea. Here, all the characters are broken into radicals to help you perceive Chinese characters as logical compounds, each representing a part of Chinese history, culture, and philosophy. The book will also show you how each character is used in sentences and phrases. Some characters come along with short grammatical explanations and cultural facts. Most of the character associations in this book have no etymological value, that is, they do not show how ...

Have you ever wanted to understand the world of the Ketogenic diet and Intermittent Fasting, but wondered if maybe it wasn't for you? Come dive into this book and see the wonderful things that the Keto diet and Intermittent Fasting can offer you.
Fasting has been a practice throughout human evolution. Ancient hunter-gatherers didn't have supermarkets, refrigerators or food available year-round. Sometimes they couldn't find anything to eat. As a result, humans evolved to be able to function without food for extended periods of time. In fact, fasting from time to time is more natural than always eating 3-4 (or more) meals per day.
Here are some changes that occur in your body when you fast:

When you know you're in love with the right person, and you know why, and you know it's for all the right reasons, and you know they're all good... Well, you just know. Or at least you think you do. That's not me. I don't recognize good. It's too few and far between. It's been that way my whole, entire life.
And, unfortunately for him, it's also become Avette's new version of normal, thanks to his unyielding love for me. My husband's blinded to all of the yuck and disgust that fucks me up from the inside out. It's a talent or a gift. Maybe a curse. Whatever it is, it's not one I possess. But the worst part is I see what he wants. He wants me to feel the same. To see him in the same light. But that's not how my heart was created. I can't feel or love the same way that he does. Life doesn't mean the same to me as it does to him. No, not until my entire world changed.

Nyssa Lakin is twenty years old when her boyfriend, Reese, proposes marriage, and she finds herself unable to give him an immediate answer. She loves him, but at this stage in her life, with so many unanswered questions still ahead, is she really ready for marriage?
"How I regretted that I was unable to throw my arms around Reese's neck and cry out that age-old refrain from every romantic movie I'd ever watched as a child... I would always stare at the screen, and want to shout at them, 'But how can you know for sure?'"

Homer's epic poems, The Iliad and The Odyssey, laid the foundation upon which Ancient Greece developed not only its culture, but its societal values, religious beliefs, and practice of warfare as well.

THE FIX-IT MAN By REMINGTON KANE
John Faron is a natural-born tinkerer who can apparently fix anything.
But when he's forced by the actions of a madman to make an unthinkable choice,
he soon finds that the one thing he can't mend, is his own broken heart.
THE FIX-IT MAN - A Tale of True Love & Revenge
After witnessing the Sun disappear from the dark Arcturian sky, Nick and the rest of the landing party return to Space Ten. Even though he was told Earth was gone, Nick tells his staff that he wants to see for himself. He hopes to find at least some survivors to add to the meager remnants of the Human race; the crew of Space Ten.
Without enough supplies to reach Earth and then one of the other planets selected for colonization, they decide to return to the surface for much-needed provisions, hoping to avoid any contact with the locals. And God. This time, Gunnery Sergeant McCain leads the away mission- with unexpected results.
While the ship heads to Earth, the crew reads the now-digitized Bible. As they grapple with their newfound faith and what has happened back on Earth, lines are drawn between new believers and those that refuse to read it, or take to heart what they have read.
"A powerful tale of love between sisters and family, remade."
St. Paul, Minnesota, 1946:
When Shannon was a child, she listened as her father read stories of a motherless princess who ventured far from the kingdom, connected to home by the magic of a fine, silver thread. As a young woman, Shannon knows she is neither a princess nor an adventuress - that would be her sister, Eliza. But when Shannon barely survives a year in quarantine for TB, losing any hope of motherhood herself, and when Eliza runs away after a brutal attack, the fairy tale comes to life. On her journey to bring Eliza home, Shannon discovers a secret child, the love of a good man, and the true meaning of family remade. But when all is said and done, is the bond between sisters strong enough to save Eliza?

My life has been destroyed by two men. One, my hero. The other, my worst nightmare.
I taste the bitterness of betrayal every day as my body bleeds, suffering the touch of my enemy. It's a fate chosen for me by others and it's not something I can escape. At least, not yet.
I'm determined to survive, my need for vengeance feeding me. I'll play this game until every piece is in place so I can break them all.
My plan includes Rylan Wolfe, the FBI agent eager to strike a deal. I give him the information he needs to take down a criminal threat, and he gives me the satisfaction of bringing my enemies to their knees.
But my hunger for justice won't be sated until they've burned to ash. And for my plan to succeed I have no choice but to deceive Rylan -- the one man who manages to thaw the ice in my veins.
In the end I'll have to decide whether the revenge I've dreamt of for so long is worth losing the man who might be able to free my heart.

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D. (The Complete Unabridged Edition in 6 Volumes)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D. (1791) is a biography of Dr. Samuel Johnson written by James Boswell. It is regarded as an important stage in the development of the modern genre of biography; many have claimed it as the greatest biography written in English. While Boswell's personal acquaintance with his subject only began in 1763, when Johnson was 54 years old, Boswell covered the entirety of Johnson's life by means of additional research. The biography takes many critical liberties with Johnson's life, as Boswell makes various changes to Johnson's quotations and even censors many comments. Regardless of these actions, modern biographers have found Boswell's biography as an important source of information.

Brandon had to decide... Sarah or Jamie. But, it wasn't just a matter of choosing between two girls. This story isn't nearly that simplistic. Brandon got down on one knee and asked Sarah to marry him. That seemed like a no brainer. He chose to gamble with their lives in Hawaii the night before their wedding. (A different kind of "no brainer.") And then, Brandon chose to stay by Sarah's side and fight for her... to fight for "them." Good for him, right? Not so fast. Brandon didn't choose Jamie initially. And he sure didn't choose to bump into her again, long after he had moved on with Sarah. He didn't choose to be so conflicted in Hawaii, or to be stalked, entrapped, and almost killed. Yeah, life got pretty complicated for Brandon. (Understatement of the year.) He wanted to do the right thing by Sarah... by everyone (Sarah's parents, the police and Jamie). But, what was really the "right" thing to do?
