Reign of Mary Tudor:Politics, Government and Religion in England 1553-58 D.M. Loades
A wounded soldier and a rector´s daughter discover strange goings-on in the sleepy village of Kurland St. Mary in Catherine Lloyd´s charming Regency-set mystery debut. Major Robert Kurland has returned to the quiet vistas of his village home to recuperate from the horrors of Waterloo. However injured his body may be, his mind is as active as ever. Too active, perhaps. When he glimpses a shadowy figure from his bedroom window struggling with a heavy load, the tranquil faade of the village begins to loom sinister.... Unable to forget the incident, Robert confides in his childhood friend, Miss Lucy Harrington. As the dutiful daughter of the widowed rector, following up on the major´s suspicions offers a welcome diversion - but soon presents real danger. Someone is intent on stopping their investigation. And in a place where no one locks their doors, a series of thefts and the disappearance of two young serving girls demands explanation.... As Robert grapples with his difficult recovery, he and Lucy try to unearth the dark truth lurking within the village shadows, and stop a killer waiting to strike again.... 1. Language: English.

This book examines Mary Ward´s distinctive insight into late-Victorian and Edwardian society as a famous writer and reformer, who was inspired by the philosopher and British idealist, Thomas Hill Green. As a talented woman who had studied among Oxford University intellectuals in the 1870s, and the granddaughter of Dr Arnold of Rugby, Mrs Humphry Ward (as she was best known) was in a unique position to participate in the debates, issues and events that shaped her generation; religious doubt and Christianity, educational reforms, socialism, women´s suffrage and the First World War. Helen Loader examines a range of biographical sources, alongside Mary Ward´s writings and social reform activities, to demonstrate how she expressed and engaged with Greenian idealism, both in theory and practice, and made a significant contribution to British Society.
When Mary Dinwoodie is found choked in a ditch following a night out with her boyfriend, a mysterious caller phones the local paper with a quotation from Hamlet. The career of the Yorkshire Choker is under way.... If Detective Superintendent Dalziel is unimpressed by the literary phone calls, he´s downright angry when Sergeant Wield calls in a clairvoyant. Linguists, psychiatrists, mediums, it´s all a load of nonsense as far as he´s concerned. But meanwhile the Choker strikes again and again and again. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Colin Buchanan.

At sixty-something years old Angela Dunn has given up on finding much excitement in her life. She´s got her half-blind dog, Gizmo, a crummy retail job, a tiny house, and no close friends or family to call on in her Kokomo, Indiana hometown. But when her brother, Tony, calls from Florida with a house-sitting offer, Angela has to gear up all her courage to accept. What about the bugs? The alligators? Her fear of hurricanes? Not knowing what else to do, she sells her few belongings, loads the dog into her SUV, and soon, there she is: living in a cute-as-a-bug house trailer, being romanced by a handsome, gray-haired Italian, making friends with wild women, and trying very hard to let go of the past and find the joy in life once more. 1.
