FINALIST FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD From prize-winning author Bobbie Ann Mason, a brilliantly wrought novel about the first woman to give birth to quintuplets in early 1900s America. Set in the apocalyptic atmosphere of 1900—a time when many Americans were looking for signs foretelling the end of the world—Feather Crowns is the story of a young woman who unintentionally creates a national sensation. A farm wife living near the small town of Hopewell, Kentucky, Christianna Wheeler gives birth to the first recorded set of quintuplets in North America. Christie is suddenly thrown into a swirling storm of public attention. Hundreds of strangers descend on her home, all wanting to see and touch the "miracle babies." The fate of the babies and the bizarre events that follow their births propel Christie and her husband far from home, on a journey that exposes them to the turbulent pageant of life at the beginning of the modern era. Richly detailed and poignant, Feather Crowns focuses on one woman but opens out ultimately into the chronicle of a time and a people. Written in Bobbie Ann Mason's taut yet lyrical prose, the novel ranges from a peaceful farming community to a fire-and-brimstone revival camp, from traveling shows to the the nation's capital. Moving through the center of it all is Christie, a charming, headstrong, loving woman who struggles heroically to come to terms with the extraordinary events of her long life. Feather Crowns is an American parable of profound resonance. Spellbindingly readable, it is a novel of classic stature that confirmed Bobbie Ann Mason as one of America's most important writers.

A Concise History of Modern Europe: Liberty, Eq...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Highlighting the key events, ideas, and individuals that have shaped modern Europe, this fresh and lively book provides a concise history of the continent from the Enlightenment to the present. Drawing on the enduring theme of revolution, David S. Mason explores the political, economic, and scientific causes and consequences of revolution; the development of human rights and democracy; and issues of European identity and integration. He deliberately avoids a detailed chronology of every country and time period by emphasizing the most crucial events that have shaped Europe. Fourteen focused chapters address such topical issues as the Enlightenment; the French Revolution and Napoleon; the Industrial Revolution; the theories and impact of Marx and Darwin; the revolutions of 1848, 1917, and 1989; the unifications of Germany and Italy; European imperialism; the two world wars; the Cold War; the evolution and expansion of the European Union; and current challenges confronting Europe. 1.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

A comprehensive summary of the book 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, by Jordan B. Peterson.   Jordan B. Peterson’s 12 Rules for Life is quite thought provoking. The Canadian clinical psychologist puts forth his ideas about personality, being, existence; the interconnectedness of order and chaos, two forces evident in all of life; the gender roles assignment discourse; the source of the world’s greatest evils; and many other controversial topics.   It is refreshing, and sometimes confusing, how he weaves biblical accounts and characters into the telling of his stories. But what might raise the hairs of most are his views on political correctness regarding postmodernism, white privilege, cultural appropriation, and everything in between. One thing is clear about Peterson. He is a man unapologetic for his views, which are largely unpopular, closely conservative, and politically incorrect.   This audiobook contains a comprehensive, well-detailed summary and key takeaways of the original book by Jordan B. Peterson. It summarizes the book in detail to help people effectively understand, articulate, and imbibe the original work by Peterson. This audiobook is not meant to replace the original book, but to serve as a companion to it. Contained you will find: Executive summary of the original book  Key points of each chapter Brief chapter-by-chapter summaries Disclaimer: This is a summary review of the book 12 Rules for Life and not the original book. 1.

The Curiosity Keeper , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 485min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The first book in the beloved Regency romance series, The Treasure of Surrey.  “Regency romantic suspense at its page-turning best.” -- RT Book Reviews    “It is not just a ruby, as you say. It is large as a quail’s egg, still untouched and unpolished. And it is rumored to either bless or curse whoever possesses it.”  Camille Iverness can take care of herself. She’s done so since the day her mother abandoned the family and left Camille to run their shabby curiosity shop. But when a violent betrayal leaves her injured with no place to hide, Camille must allow a mysterious stranger to come to her aid. Jonathan Gilchrist never wanted to inherit Kettering Hall. As a second son, he was content to work as the village apothecary. But when his brother’s death made him heir just as his father’s foolish decisions put the estate at risk, only the sale of a priceless possession -- a ruby called the Bevoy -- can save the family from ruin. But the gem has disappeared. And all trails lead to Iverness Curiosity Shop -- and the beautiful shop girl who may be the answer to his many questions.    Caught at the intersection of blessings and curses, greed and deceit, these two determined souls must unite to protect what they hold dear. But when a passion that shines far brighter than any gem is ignited, they will have to decide how much they are willing to risk for their future, love, and happiness.    “An engaging Regency with a richly detailed setting and an unpredictable suspenseful plot.” -- Library Journal    “A delightful read, rich with period details.” -- Sarah M. Eden, best-selling author of For Elise   1. Language: English. Narrator: Jude Mason. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tnwd/000476/bk_tnwd_000476_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
