A young couple falls in love and is met with challenges from lack of communication and their choice of different occupations.
The beautiful Ilena Foringham not only helped her father, who was a senior Member of Parliament, with his speeches but she also assisted Lord Witherington with his. She had always found him a tremendous bore, but when he eventually proposed marriage to her she knew that this was something that she could not bear and that she could never be happy with him. As Ilena realised that her parents also wanted her to marry Lord Witherington, she knew that she had no option but to run away. After visiting an Employment Agency, she was not only given the position of secretary to Lord Henry Brantford, but Mrs. Morton at the Agency gave Ilena the passport belonging to her dead niece so that she could travel under an assumed name to avoid being followed and brought back home ignominiously by Lord Witherington. When Ilena met Lord Henry on the train to Dover and they set sail from England, she began helping him with a book that he was writing by taking down in shorthand as he was dictating to her. They were very busy with his book, at the same time enjoying the voyage until they stopped at Rome and to Ilena’s horror she saw from the porthole of her cabin Lord Witherington coming aboard the ship. She managed to keep herself hidden until they stopped at Greece when something very frightening happened to Ilena. What took place and how she was able eventually to find happiness and the real love that she was seeking is told in this intriguing novel by BARBARA CARTLAND.
"Bob Basso is the poignant and rivetingly funny voice of the sixty-plus generation yearning to recapture the simplicity and wholesome values of a fading past. His tenth book, a compilation of short stories, Searching For Hula Love Under A Blue Papaya Moon, is pure soul food."-William LeClaire, Editor, New Books Weekly (Editor's Choice Award) If you're over fifty, or hope one day to reach it, then you'll recognize the common struggle to rise above modern absurdity and find refuge in your own history. Some tales are autobiographical, verbatim true, others more or less true. Deciphering which is which is part of the fun. An aging historian loses self-importance encountering France's greatest living myth ("The Legend of Mr. Beaumarchaise"); the frustration of sex after sixty combines with disgust of all things politically correct ("White Man's Rage"); an ironic farewell to heroes ("Forty-Two Minutes With The Boys of Pearl"); an eccentric Nobel Prize poetess burns her books and looks to her garden for salvation ("Yard Work"); and magic, myth and an epic journey backward to recapture meaning at the end of life ("Searching For Hula Love Under A Blue Papaya Moon").
Famous sculptor Seven Carmichael does everything in his power to win the heart of financial advisor Bailey Hughes.
"Wonderful...the closest we are ever going to get to a Chatwin autobiography." -William Dalrymple, The Times Literary Supplement (London) The celebrated author of such beloved works as In Patagonia and The Songlines, Bruce Chatwin was a nomad whose desire for adventure and enlightenment was made wholly evident by his writing. This marvelous selection of letters-to his wife, to his parents, and to friends, including Patrick Leigh Fermor, James Ivory, and Paul Theroux- reveals a passionate man and a storyteller par excellence. Written with the verve and sharpness of expression that first marked him as an author of singular talent, Chatwin's letters provide a window into his remarkable life and strikingly detailed insights regarding his literary ambitions and tastes.
In this compilation of David Suzuki's latest thoughts and writings, the renowned scientist, author, and broadcaster explores the myriad environmental challenges the world faces and their interconnected causes. In doing so, Suzuki shows that understanding the causes—and recognizing that everything in nature, including us, is interconnected—is crucial to restoring hope for a better future. The solutions are there, he argues; we just need the will to act together to bring about change. Everything Under the Sun delves into such provocative topics as the difference between human hunters and other predators, the lessons we must learn from the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan and the subsequent meltdown of the nuclear reactors, and our dependence on the sun for all of our food and energy—indeed for our very lives. Suzuki also considers the many positive steps people are making today. And he doesn't shy away from controversial opinion, especially when it comes to taking on those who stand in the way of resolving serious issues like climate change. Underpinning it all is the recognition that we are blessed to live on a planet that gives us everything we require to live, under a sun that gives us the energy we need to produce food and transport and modern conveniences. But we must protect what we have if we want to survive and prosper.
A simple, logical, step by step progression through the thought process leading from atheism to faith, from despair to hope, and from a meaningless existence to joy beyond your wildest dreams!
In the course of time, the Earth was left behind. Its citizens had fled overpopulation, pollution and other nuisances.
