The time has come for humanity to triumph over sin. This triumph will come by one of two means: Either there will be a literal destruction of human life and a new life wave begun; on this generation of human beings will turn away from its present morality and put war and other tyrannies aside. Internationalism will replace nationalism, production will be geared to need, and extortion in the name of God will be ended. A perpetual end to war among human beings can begin among you at this time. All that is required is that you insist that your governments sign a treaty of no war with each other. Let this treaty at first be for a specified number of years — twenty-five or fifty years. Then during these years of no war, let all technology of the Earth be directed toward creating a decent standard of living for all people. Remember, peace is dead and will remain so, so long as you think in terms that set nation against nation. I know that this truth is most painful for many of you — that peace is dead and so too will life on Earth be, unless internationalism replaces nationalism and other self-isms. The matter is entirely in your hands. There is one humanity on/in Earth. The resources of the Earth are for all to share.

A time-travel story that is both a poignant exploration of human identity and an absorbing tale of suspense. It’s natural to feel a little out of place when you’re the new girl, but when Charlotte Makepeace wakes up after her first night at boarding school, she’s baffled: everyone thinks she’s a girl called Clare Mobley, and even more shockingly, it seems she has traveled forty years back in time to 1918. In the months to follow, Charlotte wakes alternately in her own time and in Clare’s. And instead of having only one new set of rules to learn, she also has to contend with the unprecedented strangeness of being an entirely new person in an era she knows nothing about. Her teachers think she’s slow, the other girls find her odd, and, as she spends more and more time in 1918, Charlotte starts to wonder if she remembers how to be Charlotte at all. If she doesn’t figure out some way to get back to the world she knows before the end of the term, she might never have another chance.

When her best friend dies under mysterious circumstances, Sophie sets off to stay with her cousins on the remote Isle of Skye. It's been years since she last saw them--brooding Cameron with his scarred hand; Piper, who seems too perfect to be real; and peculiar little Lilias with her fear of bones. Still, Sophie never expected the strange new rules the family now lives by: Make no mention of Cameron's accident. Never leave the front gate unlocked. Above all, don't speak of the girl who's no longer there, the sister whose death might have closer ties to Sophie's past--and more sinister consequences for her future--than she ever knew. A wondrously haunting and modern thriller, Frozen Charlotte drips with mystery and madness, secrets and survival, and the chilling sense that the impossible might be all too real.

"This collection of fourteen new essays on Gilman's mixed legacy - her vision for a truly humane, egalitarian world alongside her persistent presentation of class, ethnic, and racial stereotypes - underscores the contemporary relevance of Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935). Gilman enjoyed a worldwide reputation as a writer, lecturer, and socialist, and her prodigious output (novels, stories, poetry, lectures, journalism, theoretical works) stands as a major contribution to modern feminist thought on important, contested economic and social issues. After her death in 1935, she was virtually forgotten. With the revival of the women's movement in the 1960s and 1970s, however, Gilman was "rediscovered," her arguments deemed prescient by late-twentieth-century feminists."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Like Eloise growing up in the Plaza Hotel, Charlotte Silver grew up in her mother's restaurant. Located in Harvard Square, Upstairs at the Pudding was a confection of pink linen tablecloths and twinkling chandeliers, a decadent backdrop for childhood. Over dinners of foie gras and Dover sole, always served with a Shirley Temple, Charlotte kept company with a rotating cast of eccentric staff members. After dinner, in her frilly party dress, she often caught a nap under the bar until closing time. Her one constant was her glamorous, indomitable mother, nicknamed "Patton in Pumps," a wasp-waisted woman in cocktail dress and stilettos who shouldered the burden of raising a family and running a kitchen. Charlotte's unconventional upbringing takes its toll, and as she grows up she wishes her increasingly busy mother were more of a presence in her life. But when the restaurant-forever teetering on the brink of financial collapse-looks as if it may finally be closing, Charlotte comes to realize the sacrifices her mother has made to keep the family and restaurant afloat and gains a new appreciation of the world her mother has built. Infectious, charming, and at times wistful, Charlotte au Chocolat is a celebration of the magic of a beautiful presentation and the virtues of good manners, as well as a loving tribute to the author's mother-a woman who always showed her best face to the world.

Deeply involved in London's wartime black market, gangland lawyer Mark Abrahams worries for his life. Operating on both sides of the law he is desperate for a way out. His chance comes during a daytime raid in 1943. Returning from the bank he finds his building blitzed and his staff buried under three floors of smoking rubble and with them his partner Richard Ellis. But who is to say who died, he or Ellis? With 15000 in his suitcase he sees his chance to flee from London with another man's identity. By the spring of 1944 the reborn Richard Ellis has become an established solicitor in a small port on the Cornish coast but it is the affairs of the local gentry that awakens his interest. Silas Trevelyan, a miserly recluse is sitting on a family fortune. His vast estate of property and watermills dominates the river valley down to Creakside Manor. Next in line for succession is Bill Ives. Widowed with a small child, he marries Rachel, a flighty conscript from London. To cut her out of his fortunes, Silas alters his will, leaving everything to Bill's daughter, Charlotte. But when Bill is killed during the D-Day celebrations, Ellis realises that with some clever forgery, he can steer Silas' money his way. However, he underestimates both the Trevelyan cunning and the gutsy young Charlotte. Neither does he expect his past to catch up with him as it does when a schooner sails into the harbour in 1953. Its owner, U.S. naval officer Jack Lavelle is there to uncover the truth. Ellis, driven to murderous lengths to avoid disclosure, takes risk after risk to save his dream. But there is something else, triggered off by Ellis's own evil, that brings about the horrific ending none of them could have foreseen.
