But her plans to return to London go awry when she finds herself at Everleigh, a sprawling mansion nestled in the heart of the forest. Mistaken for a newly appointed maid, Rose is sent to meet her new master, the sinfully handsome and brooding Lord Farleigh. But how can she tell him who she really is without ruining her reputation?

In order to become a healing presence for others, we must first be healed ourselves—through an active relationship with the great Healer, Christ. Drawing on the teachings of the Fathers and saints of the Church, Dr. Rossi gently points the way toward deepening our love for God and for each other so that others may experience Christ through us.
All that's standing in the way of the Dunbars' divorce is Brian Dunbar's unwillingness to sign the papers. And though his wife, Lieutenant Colonel Anne Dunbar, loves him as madly as she did on their wedding day eleven years ago, their differences--intensified by the pressures of career and family--are irreconcilable.
Or so she thinks.
When a long-lost file lands on Anne's desk, she learns some unexpected ons about love and trust from the remarkable story of a World War I "Hello Girl" telephone operator. Marie Reynaud fought valiantly for love--a love immortalized in diary entries that transcended war and time. A love inspiring enough to save Anne's marriage?
From the pen of R.Austin Freeman, creator of Dr.Thorndyke (and among whose fans we find T.S. Eliot and Raymond Chandler), we get his second most famous character: Romney Pringle.
A poor literary agent and avid cyclist, Pringle is in truth a conman of the highest caliber, and his adventures are well-deserved members of "Queen's Quorum" of influential and important mystery and crime stories... This volume contains the complete 12 short stories; a true delight for Freeman's fans...
La canción de nosotros es una novela del exilio: el autor evoca su tierra prohibida, y la recrea a través de las aventuras que en sus páginas se entrecruzan, sobre el trasfondo de la dictadura militar, en el tiempo de los horrores y los desafíos.
Los libros de Eduardo Galeano son inclasificables, porque alevosamente violan las fronteras que dividen los géneros literarios. Esta obra, sin embargo, puede ser definida como una novela. Así lo entendió el jurado del concurso Casa de las Américas, que en 1975 le otorgó ese premio, compartido con Mascaró, el cazador americano, de Haroldo Conti. “Alucinante testimonio sobre la tragedia de nuestro tiempo: presencia estremecedora de lo real en el mundo mítico de lo imaginario, en el ámbito imperecedero de un cantar de gesta.” Augusto Roa Bastos, Crisis, Argentina. “Este gran libro nos deja una canción, que se canta bajo la máscara ‘con voz de ciego’.” Albert Bensoussan, La Quinzaine Littéraire, Francia. “Una muy buena novela, que se lee rápido y que deja un buen pedazo de espina metido entre vena y vena.” Poli Délano, Cambio, México. “Restos del naufragio que Galeano transforma en una totalidad artística, metáfora de un mundo en trance de destrucción y, ante todo, conciencia del lenguaje, búsqueda creativa a partir de los fragmentos del recuerdo y del deseo.” Hugo J. Verani, Revista de Crítica Literaria Latinoamericana, Perú.
