First in the FATED LOVES collection: A ghostly romantic novel from USA-Today bestselling author Edie Claire. 4.5-Star, Romantic Times Top Pick and winner of the Road to Romance Reviewer’s Choice Award! Years and distance kept the memories at bay. But back at home, the past is ready and waiting to haunt her... Eighteen years have passed since Joy's childhood best friend, Jenny, met her death in a tragic car accident just a few days after their senior prom. A broken Joy left their small Kentucky hometown shortly after -- determined never to come back. But when her father's illness forces her to return, she realizes that neither time nor distance has truly healed her troubled soul. Plagued with nightmares of the accident and crippled by a vague fear whose source she can't identify, Joy realizes that in order to move on she must face the truth behind several disturbing gaps in her memory of that fateful spring. But the only person who can help her is a man she despises: Jenny's erstwhile boyfriend Jeff, now a respected doctor, whose carelessness as a teenager was the cause of Jenny's horrendous death -- and Joy's own emotional destruction. Can she ever forgive? She may have no choice but to try. Because both the danger she sensed -- and the childhood friendship she treasured -- now suddenly seem very much alive... “LONG TIME COMING is a remarkably well blended romance and mystery, with fascinating shades of the paranormal. The way each layer of Joy's discovery of her forgotten past is revealed is deftly done and exceptionally suspenseful. The relationship between Joy and her parents is heart warming. This one will have you hooked from the first page.” December 2003 Top Pick. Romantic Times Bookclub Magazine “An abundance of charm… Joy’s perky first-person narration carries readers along to a warm, gratifying conclusion.” -- Publisher’s Weekly “Emotionally gripping, suspenseful and superb… I was held in wonderment over much of this story and realized early on to expect the unexpected. This is a story of trust, love, friendship and healing. Ms. Claire is an author I hope to see more of in the future. If Long Time Coming is any indication of her writing talent, I will be first in line at the bookstores to get more of her work. This is a positively splendid tale from start to finish and is highly recommended.” Reviewer’s Choice Award -- Road to Romance “Two words. ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! Edie Claire has written a wonderful novel about friendship, love, guilt and death… Utterly riveting.” Rating: 10/10 -- Contemporary Romance Writers “Claire's charming romance disproves the adage that you can't go home again.” -- Booklist “A book of healing, understanding, rebirth, and finally growing up. A story that you won't forget easily... I could only sigh in appreciation as I turned the final page.” -- Romance Reviews Today “Intense, well-written and thought-provoking.” -- Old Book Barn Gazette “A most fantastic novel… When the story comes to an end and the lights have been lowered… and the reader is left with a longing to know more... there is no better compliment to the author.” -- Romance Junkies Originally published in 2003 by Warner Books (Warner Forever).

Long Time Coming: Short Writings from Zimbabwe has been chosen by New Internationalist as one of their two 'Best Books of 2009'. The book brings together short stories and poems from thirty-three writers that provide snapshots of this turbulent period in Zimbabwe's history. Snapshots of living in a country where basic services have crumbled: where shops have no food, taps no water, banks no money, hospitals no drugs, bars no beer. Snapshots of characters surviving against seemingly insurmountable odds. Horrific snapshots of the abuse of power, of violence and oppression, of the destruction of dreams. But this is Zimbabwe and there are lighter moments and moments of hope: in some of life's simple pleasures, in the coming of the rains, in the wink and the smile of a stranger, in a challenge to patriarchy, in the inner strength of the people, in fighting back.

Race, Inheritance and an Extraordinary Childhood Odyssey in Modern Day Britain

Category: Family & Relationships

Page: 258

View: 4154

In this forthright, agonisingly compelling semi-autobiography, penned by the son of a black African-Caribbean father and a white English mother, five decades of family struggle are unravelled. Often emotionally charged and unsentimental, the many vicissitudes in the childhood journey of Willson, the strange fruit born of this racial mixing, are examined and contextualised. The tale that emerges, one of seemingly omnipotent adversity, is a collage of hope, aspiration, and parental love spanning life in 1950s London into the new millennium. It is a striking portrait of impressions and memories of life in modern Britain. The reader will be confronted and uplifted, may wince, even cheer as this painfully angry yet forgiving, challenging yet inspiring narrative explores universal human concepts of family, child development, teenage delinquency, race, and ancestry in our rapidly evolving world.

The Château Letoric is the ancestral home of the highly respected Larche family obsessed with the past, with bitterness, rancour and revenge. Solange is one of France's most poignant Resistance heroines but, badly tortured, now senile, the repository of many dark secrets, she has been confined to a wheel chair since the end of the war. Her husband Henri was accused of collaborating with the Nazis. Their son, Marius, at forty-eight a senior officer in Interpol, has been fighting to clear his father's name. But Marius himself is also vulnerable in St Esprit where his past - a homosexual affair with a farm-worker - rises to plague him. Suddenly the years of tongue-wagging culminate in the first of three fatal tragedies: Henri Larche is murdered. The paralysis of a town trapped in the past is powerfully evoked in this superbly skilful story of a family whose dread secrets hound them to a death which has been forty-five years coming.
