            Talora un viaggio di ritorno puo essere l'occasione che fa rivivere il passato, oppure la cura che offre serenita alla propria anima inquieta. Sono i momenti in cui la mente rivede i giorni dell'infanzia e della fanciullezza, le estati, i giochi all'aria aperta, la famiglia e i p...arenti scomparsi. Il quartiere, dove si e trascorsa la prima parte della propria vita, riappare come una grande famiglia dove tutti sapevano tutto e ci si aiutava con affetto e rispetto umano. La citta si ritrasforma nel luogo magico che comprendeva l'intero mondo esistente, il mare era lo spazio dei sogni, la proiezione dell'avventura e della liberta. I personaggi, con i loro soprannomi quasi fiabeschi, i loro vizi, le loro qualita, i lavori artigianali, i comportamenti scanditi dalle giornate difficili del tempo passato, diventano i colori di un racconto, fatti di una storia viva e mai dimenticati. Alfredo di oggi ritorna Alfredino di una volta e compie, cosi, un viaggio nel tempo. Lo descrive col suo cuore innocente di bambino.

            The captivating prequel to the treasured Grantchester series follows the life, loves and losses of a young Sidney Chambers in post-war London It is 1938, and eighteen-year-old Sidney Chambers is dancing the quickstep with Amanda Kendall at her brother Robert's birthday party at t...he Caledonian Club. No one can believe, on this golden evening, that there could ever be another war. Returning to London seven years later, Sidney has gained a Military Cross, and lost his best friend on the battlefields of Italy. The carefree youth that he and his friends were promised has been blown apart, just like the rest of the world - and Sidney, carrying a terrible, secret guilt, must decide what to do with the rest of his life. But he has heard a call: constant, though quiet, and growing ever more persistent. To the incredulity of his family and the derision of his friends - the irrepressible actor Freddie, and the beautiful, spiky Amanda - Sidney must now negotiate his path to God: the course of which, much like true love, never runs smooth. The touching, engaging and surprising origin story of the Grantchester Mysteries's beloved Archdeacon, Sidney Chambers, The Road to Grantchester will delight new and old fans alike.

            Good Will: A Novel (EPUB ebook)

            By Killoren, Tiffany W.

            Four women learn to let go-and get back more than they ever expected. There's no road map for what to do when your husband dies-when he jumps off a bridge to escape mistakes that he made, or even welcomed, into your lives. But Lily doesn't need to consult a map for this particula...r part of her journey; she knows the way back to the small town she left behind. With a precocious seven-year-old who reminds her too much of his father tucked safely in the back seat, Lily leaves New York with everything she owns packed in a U-Haul, including memories that come in waves like fields along the highway, and an envelope she is too afraid to open. Once she settles in, she sifts through a box of things destined for the local thrift store-items from her past that will connect four women in unexpected ways and give them all the strength they need to move on.

            A sweeping saga of lost love and tangled family secrets in the beautiful Victorian countryside. When your world falls apart the only person you can depend on is your sister. The three Chirnwell sisters are descended from the privileged squattocracy in Victoria's Western District ...- but could a long-held secret threaten their family? Harriett Chirnwell has a perfect life - a husband who loves her, a successful career and a daughter who is destined to become a doctor just like her. Xara has always lived in Harriet's shadow; her chaotic life with her family on their sheep farm falls far short of her older sister's standards of perfection and prestige. Georgie, the youngest sister and a passionate teacher, is the only one of the three to have left Billawarre. But is her life in Melbourne happy? All three sisters have a different and sometimes strained bond with their mother. Despite this, they come together to organise a party for her milestone birthday - the first since their father's death. But when Edwina arrives at her party on the arm of another man, the tumult is like a dam finally breaking. Suddenly the lives of the Chirnwell sisters are flooded by scandal. Criminal accusations, a daughter in crisis and a secret over fifty years in the making start to crack the perfect facade of the prominent pastoral family. A thought provoking novel about family expectations, secrets and lies.

            25 Short Stories (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            This collection of 25 short stories has something for everyone. The main story, Derek Christian, Antichrist , is a two-part novella which examines the possibility that a world-famous televangelist might just be the Antichrist. Derek Christian, or Booster, as he was affectionately... known to his friends and family, owned a lanky and rawboned six-foot four-inch frame which was handsomely topped off with an unruly shock of dark brown hair that hung loosely above an affable smile.The other stories in this volume are a diverse collection of original works whose universal message throughout these stories is moral rather than vengeful. And since many of these pieces of short fictional prose tend to have ironic endings, the reader might be correct in suspecting that the author has taken a cue from O. Henry, who as we all know, was one of the greatest short story writers of all time.
