At heart a love story, Marguerite has a stunning way with words as she draws you in to each characters life, and all through the novel you are kept thinking of how very different life was back then.

The link between these two environments is Victor Drake who redeems his selfishness and betrayals at the end, in one stroke. This series offers fast-paced, shorter novels (just 64 pages each) for older readers who may find longer books too daunting but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style. The short novel alternates between these three characters, highlighting their separation and alienation from the world and each other. It would only have been even easier to use if it had magnetic stickers to apply to the back of non magnetic singles.As she continues to advocate for the disabled individuals in our Singapore community and internationally, she hopes that her poems will leave readers to find themselves or live through her words.

After Rachel, their eldest, died in a car accident thirteen months ago, Michael began spending more time in London, away from Catherine, with the handy excuse of his real estate work. Collaborating with authors, instructors, booksellers, librarians, and the media is at the heart of what we do as a scholarly publisher.

Author of Law, Liberty and the Constitution: A Brief History of the Common Law (Boydell Press, 2015), he wrote and presented an award-winning series on the same subject for the BBC. I wanted to know more about Catherine and her family, even after I finished the last page I wondered what would happen to the family. One interviewed former dominatrix and author, Melissa Febos, stated that even if the book's popularity was a result of women's "current anxieties about equality" that it "doesn't mean that it's 'evidence of unhappiness, or an invalidation of feminism,' .

What follows is an attempt at grappling with the grief of this, all while continuing to raise a son, Rowan, who has become ever-more distant. And yet - despite himself - he had not left: he'd waited for the catastrophic game to end, as he knew it must .

Tegen wil en dank ontluikt bij Walter een diepe genegenheid voor Farboroughs dochter Frances – een onmogelijke liefde, want zij is voorbestemd voor een huwelijk met haar jeugdvriend Victor Drake. Unlike Ghosts, Shades have been known to attack, can be killed, and are always visible to the living. It ought to be read by anyone interested in the history of prisons, crime, and the 'criminal classes'.

At one point, during an agonizing dialogue between Catherine and Michael, a seed of understanding breaks through: “Don’t you think it’s a delusion to think that we have any control over what happens to our children? Parents, Catherine and Michael, and teen son, Rowan, are each reacting differently to the loss of daughter/sister Rachel.British author Jenny Colgan in The Guardian wrote "It is jolly, eminently readable and as sweet and safe as BDSM (bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism) erotica can be without contravening the trade descriptions act" and also praised the book for being "more enjoyable" than other "literary erotic books".
