DRIVEN FROM THE DUMAS MANSION BACK TO HER BFLOVED BAYOU RUBYS ONLY HOPE IS THAT FATE WILL LET HER BEGIN ANEW Living again in a humble shack, Ruby is determined to make a secure and happy home for her precious infant daughter, Pearl. Paul Tate--her first love, whom she was rced to abandon-- is at her side once more, now a man of azzling wealth When he whisks her into his grand house, it seems their future is assured As mistress of Cypress oods, Ruby can forget even the shocking reason she and Paul must wed In a secret ceremony and remain husband and wife in name alone But the thick, expensive walls of Cypress Woods cannot shut out the terrible memories that have woven their fabric ver her destiny, or the cold eyes of Paul's mother, Gladys, reminding Ruby of the secret she must keep to give Pearl a loving father Then her venomous twin sister, Gisselle, arrives to taunt her with news of Beau Andreas, the true father Pearl has never met, and the only man Ruby will ever long for with all her body and soul. Desperate to find the complete, fulfilling life she craves, Ruby builds a precarious new existence, a flimsy shanty of hope that the first flood washes away. Only when the storm exposes the very blackest evils of the past will she glimpse the rainbow's fragile promise, a morning of sunshine and laughter with a family of her own. My Heart Pounding, I Opened the Door and Let My Twin Sister into the House... "Our stepmother would bust a gut jf she saw how well you've done for yourself, dear sister," Gisselle said, as she gazed at the grand entryway, my paintings and small statues, the long marble floors and grand stairway .... "Where's Beau's baby?" she demanded. "Pearl's asleep, and no one knows her as Beau's baby here," I said. "Of course." She smiled with satisfaction. "If you've come here to make trouble for us ... " "Why should I do that? I don't care what you've done, although I know you did it just to spite Beau." "That's not true, Gisselle." "Don't you want to hear about him?" she teased. I didn't reply. "He broke up with his fiancee in Europe, so you see, if you hadn't rushed into this sinful arrangement, you might still have won him," she said with great self-satisfaction. I felt the blood rush into my face so quickly, it felt as if it had drained completely out of my legs and I might tumble down the stairs. Then she laughed and put her arm through mine. "But let's not talk of old romances. I do have a lot to tell you, a lot you will enjoy ... and a lot you won't ....

"BURN HIM OUT!" Clay Monroe's mind went as cold as the keening wind. The half-starved and drunken oil workers had found out that he'd been working with Henry Flagler and John D. Rockefeller-and identified him with them as the cause of all their troubles. Monroe opened the door and brandished his unloaded gun; the mob hesitated a moment, then surged forward. "He won't shoot," someone shouted. "Remember, he had the Pinkertons do all the killing for him and the big-money boys." Few heard the carriage come thundering down the street, or paid attention to the licking fire that someone had started in Clay's shanty. Clay fought off a tall man swinging a length of pipe, seized the pipe and started battling his way through the mob. Then he saw the fast-moving carriage. Desperately warding off his attackers, h leapt up on the running board of the carriage burst inside. There was Eugenia Packer, in sables, fac against her golden hair. "We just passed F1agle(s house." "The train will be safer," she gas Clay, this is the end of the world!" ISBN 0-440-07441-X <br/><br/> <br/><br/>, Bantam Books, 1983, Paper Back . Very Good. In this deeply affecting chronicle of a high-caste Hindu family, Ved Mehta tells of his mother, Shanti Devi Mehta – Mamaji, as her children called her – and of her forebears. Mamaji was the shy, orthodox wife of a cosmopolitan British- and American trained physician who held high posts in the public health service under the Raj. Her life was touched not only by the lives of her forebears but also by those of her other relatives, friends and neighbors. And so the book brings us close to a civilization remote from our own: India in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. With only a few years of schooling, Mamaji’s early life revolved around never-ending household duties, ancient home remedies, and orthodox Hindu rituals. Little in her experience had prepared her to share her life with Daddyji, who spoke English, played cricket, tennis and bridge at his clubs and, as a man of science, regarded her orthodox Hindu practices as superstition. Yet Mamaji could say, many years later, she must have sacrificed pearls and diamonds in a former incarnation to have deserved to become his wife.

The story of a woman`s search for strength and independence Meet Akhilandeshwari, Akhila for short: forty-five and single, an income tax clerk and a woman who has never been allowed to live her own life—always the daughter, the sister, the aunt, the provider. Until the day she gets herself a one-way ticket to the seaside town of Kanyakumari, gloriously alone for the first time in her life and determined to break free of all that her conservative Tamil brahmin life has bound her to. In the intimate atmosphere of the ladies coupe which she shares with five other women, Akhila gets to know her fellow travellers: Janaki, pampered wife and confused mother; Margaret Shanti, a chemistry teacher married to the poetry of elements and an insensitive tyrant too self-absorbed to recognize her needs; Prabha Devi, the perfect daughter and wife, transformed for life by a glimpse of a swimming pool; fourteen-year-old Sheela, with her ability to perceive what others cannot; and Marikolanthu, whose innocence was destroyed by one night of lust. As she listens to the women`s stories, Akhila is drawn into the most private moments of their lives, seeking in them a solution to the question that has been with her all her life: Can a woman stay single and be happy, or does a woman need a man to feel complete? ‘Articulate, comic, wise, delicate, melancholy, exquisite...a carefully-pulsed breath of a book with an impact that sneaks into one’s dreams’ —Independent In turn revelatory and redeeming. Filled with the incantatory power to burn up the tracks, to seek a new destination. Her style stands out. —The Pioneer, New Delhi Anita Nair is a fine writer, with a great sense of character and is a compelling teller of stories. —The Hindu, New Delhi Each of the women is finely drawn. —The Hindustan Times, New Delhi `The novel is about making choices and living life on one`s own terms. It is this strength and resilience of the everyday woman that Nair brings out as a writer. Nair`s women are fleshed out to the last detail. You can visualize them clearly -their faces, their bones, their desires—as they talk animatedly in the train discussing their lives.` —The Telegraph, Calcutta Printed Pages: 288., Penguin Books India, 2001, Penguin Books India, 2001.

He was brought up in India in the late years of the Raj, and was sent by his family in the 1930s to Berlin—though he could not speak a word of German—to study medicine and dentistry. It was here, before he migrated to Britain, that Shanti’s path first crossed that of his future wife. Henny Gerda Caro was also born in 1908, in Berlin, to a Jewish family, cultured, patriotic and intensely German. When the family decided to have Shanti as a lodger, Henny’s first reaction was, ‘Don’t take the black man!’ But a friendship flowered, and when Henny fled Hitler’s Germany for England, just one month before the war broke out, she was met at Victoria Station by the only person she knew in the country: Shanti. Vikram Seth has woven together their astonishing story: the war that took Shanti to North Africa, the Middle East and the battle of Monte Cassino, where his right arm was blown off; the persecution that saw Henny desperately searching for news of the mother and sister she had left behind; the love that sparked their marriage in 1951; the courage that inspired Shanti to defy his injury and set up once again in his profession; the arrival into this childless couple’s lives of their great-nephew from India—the teenage student, Vikram Seth. The result is an extraordinary tapestry of India, the Third Reich and the Second World War, Auschwitz and the Holocaust, Israel and Palestine, postwar Germany and 1970s Britain. Two Lives is both a history of a violent country seen through the eyes of two survivors as well as an intimate portrait of their friendship, marriage and abiding yet complex love. Part biography, part memoir, part meditation on our times, this is the true tale of two remarkable lives—a masterful telling from one of our greatest living writers. Printed Pages: 512..

New. Gandhiji\`s highly practical approach to life and its problems, to politics in all its ramifications, to economics, in short, in very field of human activity, takes care of the idealistic craving of the human mind. Here lies the impotance of Gandhiji\`s thoughts and approach. In the present study Dr. S.S. Gupta has analysed some of the basic concepts of Gandhi\`s economic philsophy in the context of modern economic theory. The author belives that Gandhiji took life as a whole. He was not prepared to divide it into water-tight comprartments. He was convinced that every part of life is interdependent and acts and reacts on each other, the sum total effect of which is on the quality of life. So, Gandhi\`s economic philosophy cannot be understood in isolation. Further, the fundamentals of the entire life should be common for all parts of life-economic, social, political, etc. He draws heavily from the ancient philosphy of India and wants to construct a happy society based on juman values such as truth, non-violence, simplicity, etc. The world has seen that capitalism and thereafter socialism have failed to make man happy. Gandhi therefore, sets the goal of Anand (bliss) in place of welfare, where everyone will be happy. Dr. Gupta has made an excellent contribution by the present study. The simplicity of style and language, the deep insight of the author, the expert handing and critical assessment of the subject matter-all these and many other qualities of the present study heighten its value and make it a highly commendable work.

Everybody wants to be the USA and Britain and Canada and Australia and Switzerland and them. Nobody wants to be rags of countries like Congo, like Somalia, like Iraq, like Sudan, like Haiti and not even this one we live in - who wants to be a terrible place of hunger and things falling apart?' Darling and her friends live in a shanty called Paradise, which of course is no such thing. It isn't all bad, though. There's mischief and adventure, games of Find bin Laden, stealing guavas, singing Lady Gaga at the tops of their voices. They dream of the paradises of America, Dubai, Europe, where Madonna and Barack Obama and David Beckham live. For Darling, that dream will come true. But, like the thousands of people all over the world trying to forge new lives far from home, Darling finds this new paradise brings its own set of challenges - for her and also for those she's left behind., Shanti Arts LLC.

Going through canal locks was a novelty for them, as there were no locks near Milton, though the canal ran through the town. Once the Bluebird was locked within the small stone-lined basin, water was admitted to it through gates at the other and higher end. These gates kept the body of water on the higher level from pouring into the lower part of the canal. Faster and faster the water rushed in as the lock keeper opened more valves in the big gates. The water foamed and hissed all around the boat. Oh, were going up! cried Dot. Look, were rising! Just like in an elevator! added Tess. And, indeed, that is just what it was like. The water lifted the Bluebird up higher and higher. As soon as the water had raised it to the upper level, the other gates were opened, and the Bluebird moved slowly out of the lock, having been raised about fifteen feet, from a lower to a higher level. Going from a higher to a lower is just the reverse of this. Sometimes a hill is so high that three sets of locks are necessary to get a boat up or down. Once more the mules were hitched to the tow-line, and started off. As the boat left the lock another one came in, which was to be lowered. The children watched this as long as they could, and then turned their attention to new scenes. It was toward the close of the afternoon, during which nothing exciting had happened, except that Tess nearly fell overboard while leaning too far across the rail to see something in the water, that Neale, looking forward toward the mules and their driver, saw a man leading a lone animal come out of a shanty along the towpath and begin to talk to Hank. Hank halted his team, and the Bluebird slowly came to a stop. Mr. Howbridge, who was talking to Ruth and Agnes, looked up from a book of accounts he was going over with them and inquired: Whats the matter Oh, Hank has met a friend, I imagine, ventured Neale. . . .

A gift inscription to the flyleaf. This is the testament of faith of one of to-day's great Christians. Father Huddleston has become famous throughout the world for his unexampled one-man crusade upholding the cause of the Africans of Johannesburg's Shanty towns. He is famous too for his uncompromising views and the duties of a Christian to his fellow men in distress and for his forthright convictions on the Church's attitude to questions of colour. In Naught for your Comfort he has set out in full with many illustrations-both delightful and moving-his views on these questions and an account of his ministry to the many thousands whom he serves and who in return offer him allegiance and devotion which has already become a legend in South Africa. Through the book there burns like a beacon the faith and charity of a man of deep conviction and compassion. He has issued both in the achievement of his life and in this his personal story, a challenge which no Christian of conscience can ignore., Collins, 1956, Paperback. New.

Shanti Behari Seth was born on the eighth day of the eighth month in the eighth year of the twentieth century; he died two years before its close. He was brought up in India in the apparently vigorous but dying Raj and was sent by his family in the 1930s to Berlin - though he could not speak a word of German - to study medicine nd dentistry. It was here, before he migrated to Britain, that Shanti's path first crossed that of his future wife. Helga Gerda Caro, known to everyone as "Henny," was also born in 1908, in Berlin, to a Jewish family - cultured, patriotic, and intensely German. When the family decided to take Shanti as a lodger, Henny's first reaction was, "Don't take the black man!" But a friendship flowered, and when Henny fled Hitler's German for England just one month before war broke out, she was met at Victoria Station by the only person in the country she knew: Shanti. Vikram Seth has woven together their astonishing story, which recounts the arrival into this childless couple's lives of their great-nephew from India - the teenage student Vikram Seth. The result is an extraordinary tapestry of India, the Third Reich and the Second World War, Auschwitz and the Holocaust, Israel and, postwar Germany and 1970s Britain.
