Описание: This is a spellbinding story of family love, courage and betrayal at the time of the Salem witch trials. Martha Carrier was hanged on August 19th 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts, unyielding in her refusal to admit to being a witch, going to her death rather than joining the ranks of men and women who confessed and were thereby spared execution. Like her mother, young Sarah Carrier is bright and wilful, openly challenging the small, brutal world in which they live. In this startling novel, she narrates the story of her early life in Andover, near Salem. Her father is a farmer, English in origin, quietly stoical but with a secret history. Her mother is a herbalist, tough but loving, and above all a good mother. Often at odds with each other, Sarah and her mother have a close but also cold relationship, yet it is clear that Martha understands her daughter like no other. When Martha is accused of witchcraft, and the whisperings in the community escalate, she makes her daughter promise not to stand up for her if the case is taken to court. As Sarah and her brothers are hauled into the prison themselves, the vicious cruelty of the trials is apparent, as the Carrier family, along with other innocents, are starved and deprived of any decency, battling their way through the hysteria with the sheer willpower their mother has taught them.

Описание: The Green Man, the image of the foliate head or the head of a man sprouting leaves, is probably the most common of all motifs in medieval sculpture. Nevertheless, the significance of the image lay largely unregarded until Kathleen Basford published this book - the first monograph of the Green Man in any language -and thereby earned the lasting gratitude of scholars in many fields, from art history and folklore to current environmental studies. This book has opened up new avenues of research, not only into medieval man's understanding of nature, and into conceptions of death, rebirth and resurrection in the middle ages, but also into our concern today with ecology and our relationship with the green world. It is therefore a work of living scholarship and its publication in paperback will be greatly and justly welcomed.

Ritalin. Then her older son, Jeremy, gets engaged to Cami Zander-Brown - daughter of a wealthy New York family - and her world turns upside down.
The source of the
trouble is not Cami's elegant and accomplished mother, Rose. Nor is it in the form of Guy, her charismatic and wildly successful literary agent father.Instead, lurking in the shadows of
Mike's new life, is the beautifully dressed and highly manipulative Claudia. The Zander-Browns have money.
Lots of money. The plans for their daughter's dream wedding
grow more fabulous by the day, and Claudia is loving every minute of it. With her perfect taste, she can't help thinking she'd make a much better mother of the groom than
This wedding gives her the opportunity to entrench herself in Mike's life, and take credit for the two sons Darcy has raised. It's a battle for supremacy, and it takes all of
Darcy's courage and determination to outwit the determined Claudia. What emerges is a wonderfully delicious, hilarious and touching read about family, friendship and human
