Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Summary of The Lost Apothecary Short Summary: In 1971 in London, Nella runs a mysterious pharmacist shop, wrongfully giving poison for ladies to murder men who have violated them. When the police track her down, a little youngster who had been helping her, Eliza, offers herself to save Nella. However, a (perhaps magick) tincture Eliza made winds up saving them both, and Nella understands that dealing these poisons isn't the best approach to fix the torment of cheating. In present day, Caroline is a lady who has been cheated on by her significant other. She discovers a piece of information (a vial) about the pharmacist shop, finds it, finds Eliza's contribution, and eventually chooses to throw the vial back into the water to stay quiet. In The Lost Pharmacist, Nella runs a mysterious pharmacist shop taken cover behind a phony back divider in London where she offers poison to ladies, spread by gossip, to be utilized against the men in their lives who have violated them. She keeps a logbook of every exchange. Nella started administering poisons when she was double-crossed by a sweetheart, Frederick. He had ended up being married, yet when Nella had revealed to him she was pregnant, he'd sneakily given Nella a spice to cause a miscarriage. In the present day, Caroline has recently found that her significant other of ten years, James, was cheating on her. She's in London for the trip they should have gone on together. She goes on a mudlarking (searching for old articles in the mud) visit through the Thames and finds a light blue vial carved with a bear (the emblem of Nella's pharmacist shop). Curious about the vial, she starts to examine its history. She's helped by Gaynor, a lady who works at the English Gallery. Back in 1791, a 12-year-old young lady, Eliza Fanning visits Nella's shop. Eliza was asked by her employer, Mrs. Amwell, to bring a poison to kill her husband, Mr. Amwell (it's suggested he is a child molester who has focused on Eliza). The poison functions as expected, and Mr. Amwell dies. Eliza before long re-visits Nella's pharmacy, communicating an interest in Nella's exchange. Eliza is likewise quick to take a break from the Amwell house since she is concerned that Mr. Amwell's ghost is haunting her since she has begun dying (however in reality she has started her period). In present day, Caroline tracks down a reference to an amazing pharmacist, which prompts a potential area for the shop. She runs into a neglected little rear door and at last discovers what previously was Nella's pharmacist shop. She takes photographs of what she sees, including Nella's old logbook, and she later interprets these into notes, including Nella's depictions of her poisons. Back in 1791, a lady named Lady Beatrice Clarence enters Nella's shop, needing to harm her husband’s mistress. At the point when Nella declines to intentionally harm another lady, Lady Clarence takes steps to report Nella to the police. Nella hesitantly satisfies the request with Eliza's help. In the mean time, Eliza visits an enchantment shop to attempt to manage Mr. Amwell's ghost, and she winds up stirring up an enchantment tincture to turn around "bad fortune".

Celia Rees, author of Pirates! In Boston, as the Golden Age of Piracy comes to a bloody close, Hannah Masury – bound into service at a waterfront inn since childhood – is ready to take her life into her own hands. When William Fly is hanged for piracy in the town square, the teenage Hannah is watching. Forced to flee for her life, Hannah disguises herself as a cabin boy and joins the pitiless crew of another notorious real-life pirate, Edward "Ned" Low. To earn her freedom and finally change the tide of her own future, Hannah must hunt down William Fly's lost treasure. Meanwhile in 1930, Professor Marian Beresford pieces this bewitching story together, seeing her own lack of freedom reflected back at her as she watches Hannah's transformation. At the centre of Hannah Masury’s account, however, lies a centuries-old mystery that Marian is determined to solve. It soon becomes clear that Hannah was once just as determined to take this secret to her grave. A True Account tells the unforgettable, interleaved stories of two women in different worlds, both shattering the rules of their own society, both daring to risk everything to go forge their own adventure. 'A feast for the sea-loving senses.' - Sarah Penner, author of The Lost Apothecary

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A former prodigy who refuses to believe her best years are behind her and a young virtuoso searching for his passion both get an unlikely shot at their dreams in this sparkling debut about second chances, unexpected joys, and the miraculous power of music. Prudence Childs was once the most famous kindergartner on the planet. After teaching herself to play piano at age three, she performed at the White House, appeared on talk shows, and inspired a generation to take up lessons. But as adolescence closed in, Prudence realized that she was being exploited and pushed into fame by her cruel grandmother, so she ran away. Broke and alone, she took a job writing commercial jingles, which earned her a fortune but left her creatively adrift. Now forty-eight, with her daughters away at school, Prudence agrees to compete on a wildly popular dueling pianos TV show to reconnect with her inner artist. Unfortunately, her new spotlight captures the attention of her terrible ex-husband, Bobby, who uses the opportunity to blackmail her over a long-buried secret. If she doesn’t win, she won’t just be a musical failure; she’ll also be bankrupt and exposed in front of millions. Her on-air rival, virtuoso Alexei Petrov, a young internet sensation with a massive audience and a dreamy Russian accent, has problems of his own. His demanding parents made him a technically flawless pianist but left him without friends, hobbies, or any kind of life outside his music. As they prepare to face off onstage, the retired prodigy and the exhausted wunderkind realize that the competition is their chance to prove to their bad exes, tyrannical family members, and, most important, themselves that it’s never too late to write a new ending.

Book The Lost Years of Jane Austen

Download or read book The Lost Years of Jane Austen written by Barbara Ker Wilson and published by . This book was released on 2009 with total page 372 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Thanks to her meticulous diaries and frequent letters, Jane Austen's life is well documented. Except for a mysterious period in her early 20s when, for unknown reasons, her sister Cassandra burned all of Jane's personal writings. Why? Many believe Cassandra sought to protect Jane's good name following a scandalous and failed relationship." "The Lost Years of Jane Austen fills this gap in her biography with a tantalizing tale in which the restless young Jane sails to the distant colony of Australia for adventure and intrigue. Here, in the unruly young city of Sydney far from proper England, she meets the dashing Mr. Wentworth and finds herself uncontrollably swept into a passionate and risky romance." "Written in the style of Jane Austen, full of humor and sardonic wit, The Lost Years of Jane Austen delivers an engaging and plausible narrative that faithfully reflects the romantic and tumultuous plots of her beloved novels."--BOOK JACKET.
