              By Dickinson, Margaret

              Family and friendship mean everything under the darkening skies of wartime Britain, by Sunday Times bestselling author Margaret Dickinson.It is the 1930s and the Maitland family have spent the years following the Great War struggling to come to terms with its catastrophic afterma...th, and their hopes now lie with the next generation. Their Lincolnshire village of Doddington suffered terrible loss and it has taken great courage for the bereaved families to rebuild their lives without their loved ones.When war is declared again, it is Daisy Maitland and her peers who must now take up the fight for freedom. Feisty and a daredevil like her beloved Aunt Pips, who spent World War One on the front line serving with a flying ambulance corps, Daisy had persuaded a family friend to teach her to fly as a young woman. Now her country is at war, she is determined to put her skills to good use, enlisting in the Air Transport Auxiliary. There she forges new friendships - but she never forgets her childhood friend and cousin, Luke, who has joined the RAF as a fighter pilot.As war rages in the skies and on the ground, Daisy, her friends and her family - at home and across the Channel - will find their bravery and strength tested to the very limits in their determination to save their country. And they have learned one of the most valuable lessons of all: true love will find a way.

              The Other Bennet Sister
                

              The Other Bennet Sister (EPUB ebook)

              By Hadlow, Janice

              It is a sad fact of life that if a young woman is unlucky enough to come into the world without expectations, she had better do all she can to ensure she is born beautiful. To be handsome and poor is misfortune enough; but to be both plain and penniless is a hard fate indeed. In ...Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Mary is the middle of the five Bennet girls and the plainest of them all, so what hope does she have? Prim and pious, with no redeeming features, she is unloved and seemingly unlovable.The Other Bennet Sister, though, shows another side to Mary. An introvert in a family of extroverts; a constant disappointment to her mother who values beauty above all else; fearful of her father's sharp tongue; with little in common with her siblings - is it any wonder she turns to books for both company and guidance? And, if she finds her life lonely or lacking, that she determines to try harder at the one thing she can be: right.One by one, her sisters marry - Jane and Lizzy for love; Lydia for some semblance of respectability - but Mary, it seems, is destined to remain single and live out her life at Longbourn, at least until her father dies and the house is bequeathed to the reviled Mr Collins. But when that fateful day finally comes, she slowly discovers that perhaps there is hope for her, after all. Simultaneously a wonderfully warm homage to Jane Austen and a delightful new story in its own right, Janice Hadlow's The Other Bennet Sister is, at its heart, a life-affirming tale of a young woman finding her place in the world. Witty and uplifting, it will make you feel - and cheer - for Mary as you never have before.

He describes in detail the different aspects of the tea ceremony, how it was founded, the role of the tea masters, the architecture of the tea-room and the stages of making and serving the tea. He then goes on to explain the connection between Taoism and Zennism with tea and he also writes chapters on art appreciation and the art of flower arranging.

              Where's My Happy Ending?: Happily Ever After and How the Hell to Get There (EPUB ebook)

              By Whitehouse, Anna; Farquharson, Matt

              What is 'happily ever after'? Does it really exist? What do you do once you get there? Anna and Matt, journalists and authors of the Sunday Times bestseller Parenting the Sh*t Out of Life, have been together for over ten years. They set out to discover what it takes to make it to... forever by travelling the world to seek the answers to our greatest questions about love: How do you know you've got a keeper? Are we better off solo? How long does love last?In seeking these answers, Anna and Matt are forced to confront the daily niggles and a passive aggressions that have accumulated throughout their relationship. How can you avoid exploding at your partner because they have left crumbs all over the counter again? Through shared tears, laughter, one improperly discarded toenail clipping and many lost bank cards, Where's My Happy Ending? offers insight and advice from world-leading relationship experts, therapists, a lollipop lady and a fisherman on what it really means to find and keep love today.Join Anna and Matt on a searingly honest journey of their experiences in love and marriage with two small children, while navigating the often muddy waters of modern romance in a world where the odds seem stacked against you. Every chapter contains the dual voices of the authors sharing their individual perspectives and anecdotes from their life together, as well as from their research with romance novelists, celibate monks, neurologists and the founders of a free love commune. At a time where it feels like the arguments outweigh the bunk-ups, this belly-laugh inducing book is a study on whether love and relationships could be simpler - or more complex - than we think.
