Hay House UK, UK, 2011. Paperback. New. 240 pages. Available Now. Book Description: Kevin Skelton watched helplessly as a bomb ripped apart the life he knew. It was 15 August 1998, and the place was Omagh, in Northern Ireland. Kevin's wife Mena was one of the 29 people killed that day, and his daughter Shauna was horrifically injured. Kevin had lost the love of his life. He sank into the depths of despair after the bomb. At a time when his family needed him most, he turned to drink and self-loathing, often wishing he could have taken Mena's place that day. More than once, he held a loaded shotgun to his mouth, but he could never go through with it. : Mena was the angel who saved him. Before she died, she and Kevin had been bringing a young girl, Andreea, from a Romanian orphanage, for holidays to their home. In memory of Mena, Kevin decided to adopt Andreea, but on his first trip to Romania to start proceedings, he was shocked to discover that her mother, Maria, was still alive. In the most unlikely of circumstances, a love blossomed between them, convincing Kevin that Mena had sent Andreea and Maria to him so that he could find happiness again. He believes Mena has been a constant presence in the family's lives since her death, watching over them and protecting them. Sent by an Angel is a true story of love rising from the ashes of tragedy, a romance that reaches beyond the boundaries of this world. : Review: Kevin had sunk about as low as one can... and he needed a miracle to save him... The story of that miracle is told in his remarkable book.' (The Irish Independent): It's one of the few books that can make your tears of sadness turn into ones of joy, in the flick of a page. (Irish Sun): You are unlikely to read a better account of the Omagh tragedy... or a more uplifting love story. (The Irish Independent): On Saturday August 15, 1998, Kevin Skelton took his family shopping in Omagh. In a single moment their everyday task turned into an immeasurable tragedy when a terrorist bomb exploded, killing Kevin's wife of 20 years.: Unable to shake off his grief he considered takin ghis own life but a trip to Romania in memory of his wife became a remarkable turning point. This is his extraordinary story.

Reprint. Softcover. As New/No Dust Jacket. Despite international fame and success, Leonard Bernstein (1918-90) was a man constantly struggling with inner conflicts. The best loved and most successful conductor of his generation, he was adored by an international public, but suffered years of hostile criticism from the New York press. He inspired fellow American musicians, being the first native American to direct a major American orchestra, and the first to conquer Europe. His conducting style was famously flamboyant, and he possessed a rare ability to communicate the music to the listener. But Bernstein often dismissed conducting for its 'temporary' character, and declared himself to be primarily a composer. Among other musicals, he composed the world-famous West Side Story (1957), and the score to the film On the Waterfront, but never enjoyed unanimous critical acclaim for his 'serious' classical works, such as his three symphonies. In later years he feared that he would be remembered solely for his musicals. His private life was equally ambivalent; he was a bisexual who adored his wife and children but who engaged almost constantly in homosexual liaisons. Brilliant, articulate, witty and charming, he could equally be vain, egocentric and demanding, sometimes distressing his loyal supporters with his drunken and wilful behaviour. In spite of these paradoxes, Bernstein is still one of the most important musical figures of the second half of the twentieth century, and a major influence on musical life in Europe and America. This book chronicles his extraordinary rise to fame, and presents a fair but ultimately moving account - from first-hand experience - of Bernsrein's triumphs and his disappointments.

Leonard Bernstein, the latest in Phaidon Books''s 20th Century Composers series, continues this workmanlike, readable collection of modern biographies, designed to fit all the essentials into fewer than 250 pages each. Author Paul Myers, a former record producer for Decca, Columbia, and Naxos, has composed a fond but clear-eyed look at this prodigal talent with the prodigal lifestyle. His excesses as well as his triumphs are examined, and his homosexuality is candidly discussed, but the book never descends to the tabloid-like depths of some other biographies of the composer of West Side Story, Candide, Trouble in Tahiti, and other works, both serious and less than serious. Myers himself seems to belong to the camp that holds that Bernstein deserved recognition primarily as a composer of important works, as opposed to mere entertainments. He is, moreover, perhaps too generous in his examination of such things as Mass, which was performed at the opening of the Kennedy Center, and is very much a souvenir of its time (the early 1970s) and place (the world of fashionable liberalism), and hard to listen to today as a result. But he discusses both Bernstein''s triumphs as a conductor and composer and his failures in work and life fairly. This is a good, readable biography, a worthwhile introduction to Bernstein''s life, and a good starting place for those who want more details. --Sarah Bryan Miller Paul Myers, Books, Entertainment, Leonard Bernstein Books>Entertainment, Phaidon Press
