Truth is rarely pure and never simple... Selchester Castle in 1953 sits quiet and near-empty, its corridors echoing with glories of the past. Or so it seems to intelligence officer Hugo Hawksworth, wounded on a secret mission and now reluctantly assuming an altogether less perilous role at Selchester. The Castle's faded grandeur hides a web of secrets and scandals - the Earl has been missing for seven years, lost without a trace since the night he left his guests and walked out into a blizzard. When a skeleton is uncovered beneath the flagstones of the Old Chapel, the police produce a suspect and declare the case closed. Hugo is not convinced. With the help of the spirited Freya Wryton, the Earl's niece, he is drawn back into active service, and the ancient town of Selchester is dragged into the intrigues and conspiracies of the Cold War era. With a touch of Downton Abbey, a whisper of Agatha Christie and a nod to Le Carré, A Man of Some Repute is the first book in this delightfully classic and witty murder mystery series. 1.

The famous conqueror from the European continent came ashore with thousands of men, ready to set up a new kingdom in England. The Britons had resisted the amphibious invasion from the moment his forces landed, but he was able to push forward. In a large winter battle, the Britons’ large army attacked the invaders but was eventually routed, and the conqueror was able to set up a new kingdom.Over 1,100 years before William the Conqueror became the king of England after the Battle of Hastings, Julius Caesar came, saw, and conquered part of “Britannia”, setting up a Roman province with a puppet king in 54 BCE. In the new province, the Romans eventually constructed a military outpost overlooking a bridge across the River Thames. The new outpost was named Londinium, and it covered just over two dozen acres.Londinium had become the largest city in Britannia shortly before being burned down in a native revolt led by an infamous Celtic Iceni queen named Boudica. With a name meaning “Victory”, Boudica was a charismatic woman who commanded nearly 100,000 Celts and led them on a campaign to expel the Roman overlords from Britain around the year 61 CE. Often called the “Celtic Queen”, she wore a warrior’s necklace around her delicate neck and rode upon a sturdy steed. According to the ancient historian Cassius Dio, “In stature, she was very tall, in appearance most terrifying, in the glance of her eye most fierce, and her voice was harsh.” It is said she had a piercing glare that could shrink her people’s enemies, which in this case were the Roman legionnaires under the vengeful general Suetonius.Boudica was not only a woman of high intelligence but also a Druid priestess of great repute, which caused the Romans a unique kind of concern. The Celts have fascinated people for centuries, and the biggest fascination of all has been over the Druids, a religious class at the heart of Celtic society that wielded great power. Naturally, people have been interest 1. Language: English. Narrator: Colin Fluxman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/150898/bk_acx0_150898_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Summer's steamy haze coats North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains, but feisty Agnes Marie Hopper discovers the heat isn't the only thing causing her blood to boil. After a kitchen fire destroys her home, Agnes moves in with her daughter, Betty Jo. Three months later they come to an understanding: neither can tolerate living with the other. So on a sultry August morning, Betty Jo drives Agnes and her few belongings to Sweetbriar Manor, a local retirement home and former house of ill repute. With no intention of staying, Agnes devises a scheme to sneak out of the Manor and find another place to live. Before she can make her exit, she runs into her best friend from high school, along with some other quirky characters. With a nose for trouble, Agnes learns some of the residents are being robbed, over-medicated, and denied basic cable and Internet access. Armed with nothing more than 71 years of common sense and a knack for pushing people's buttons, Agnes sets out to expose the unscrupulous administrator, protect her new friends, and restore Sweetbriar Manor's reputation as a rewarding and enriching lifestyle. But the real moment of truth comes when Agnes is forced to choose between her feisty self-reliance and the self-sacrifice that comes from caring for others. 1. Language: English.

This book examines the theory of organization in the context of the changes that have characterized the evolution of organizations in our society over the years. It choreographs the intellectual attentions that have been focused on the subject matter of organizational theory over these periods and, the accompanying paradigmatic influences such attentions have elicited. In the process, the eclectic disputations over the issue of ideological, philosophical or conceptual preeminence vis-à-vis the subject matter of organizational theory and its focus were addressed. The pedigree of organizational theory and its relevance to the anatomy of real organization was traced. This enabled a proper discussion of the classical works of theorists of repute who have contributed to the expansion of the frontiers of our knowledge in the area to the extent that their works have become indispensable reference points which scholars and researchers can only ignore at their own perils. The concept of organization was examined as a prelude to the genealogical discourse of the threads of organizational theory. Against this background, the evolution of the subject was thoroughly examined.
In the 19th century, when books were comparatively rare and expensive, encyclopedic compendiums about managing households became very popular. The most notable example in this genre is Isabella Beeton's Book of Household Management, first published in 1861. Three years later, Edward Abbott, who described himself as an “Australian Aristologist”, published The English and Australian Cookery Book, which has the subtitle Cookery for the many, as well as the for the ‘upper ten thousand’. The author explains his intentions in the preface: “A writer of repute (Dugald Stewart) has said that cookery and the fine arts are analogous. I cannot discover the resemblance; but I do contend that there is affinity between hospitality and cookery, for the former would be unavailable without the aid of the latter. I offer no excuse, therefore, for the publication of this small matter-of-fact work on the cookery of the present day, for it will be found practically useful to persons in every situation in life - to the English housewife, and to her prototype in the Colonies. The following pages will show the British and Colonial mode of rendering the various articles that God has been pleased to give us for our use, nutritious and wholesome, as well as palatable to our tastes.” Narrated by Phil Benson, Elizabeth Chambers, David Prickett ,Sash Elliott, Peter Tucker, Sarah Backholer and Denis Daly. 1.

'Orphans of an Angel ' by Jay Aston, A true story of a Mother's fight for her Life and her Four BoysWhen Evelyn Dalton, aged thirty-six, discovers she is expecting her fourth child, she hopes, at last it will be a baby girl. Her elation plummets to anguish when husband Eddie reveals his involvement in a relationship with another woman, fifteen years younger. From this pivotal moment onwards in 1962, Evelyn's life spirals out of control. Her fate is sealed by cataclysmic consequences.An explosion at the Yorkshire colliery causes life changing injuries to coal-miner Eddie. As he leaves hospital months later, disabilities prevent him from returning to work and has no alternative but to leave his job. As a consequence, the Coal Board evicts Evelyn from the home she rents.Eddie abandons the family for his mistress, and plunges Evelyn into a catastrophic and chaotic life of despair, destitution and homelessness. With heart-wrenching effect, her four boys are forced to live away from her. She feels as though a jagged knife had thrust into her heart. For the pain and cruelty he has created, Evelyn knows Eddie's conscience would haunt him to the grave.With deteriorating health, Evelyn's tortured existence plummets to one of survival, engulfed by anguish and misery. With three boys and a new baby to bring up alone, her life is in turmoil. Social Services raise concerns about her ability to care for her family, implying their imminent involvement. Poverty-stricken, she struggles to cope, and vows that Social Services will never wrench her boys from her. Their destiny will not be in a children' home of dubious repute. Evelyn relies heavily on her seventy-six-year-old mother, and when her mother's health deteriorates, she runs out of options. Evelyn, already impoverished and burdened by undiagnosed severe stomach problems, becomes critically ill. Amidst excruciating pains, the hospital admits her for emergency surgery and falls into an unexpected coma. A life-support machine is Evelyn's only hope of survival, but she is unable to regain consciousness. Internal haemorrhaging goes undetected as doctors cannot stem the blood loss. She now loses more blood than she receives through constant transfusion. Her eighteen-year-old son suspects negligence and incompetence, creating acrimonious conflicts with hospital consultants.Though connected to a life-support machine, her body continues to weaken by the hour. Her son's suspicions of incompetence appear justified. His mum's survival becomes a stark choice; allow his mother to die with dignity or condemn her to life in oblivion aided by life-support. Wrestling with his conscience, he sanctions switching off the machine. Evelyn loses her fight for life within hours.Acrimony erupts at Evelyn's funeral as Eddie and his mistress pay their last respects. Each of Evelyn's sons lay a single red carnation on her coffin. To her dying day, she prevented their incarceration in a children's home. Evelyn's four sons become motherless by cruel fate and fatherless by his own selfish volition.Homeless, with no-one to care for the youngest two boys, the tragedy deepens. Social Services take control of their destiny. They are led screaming into a children's home. The youngest, aged four, spends twelve years' incarceration. On the anniversary of her passing, Eddie can no longer deal with his own guilty conscience that haunts him, and takes his own life. Evelyn's prediction comes to fruition. His conscience did haunt him to to the grave. Homeless, motherless, fatherless, destitute and unloved, Evelyn's four young boys lost everything. Through a cruel twist of fate, they became 'Orphans of an Angel.'
Guy de Maupassant, (1850 - 1893), a native of Normandy, wrote in a bold and vigorous style that moves inexorably along clear plot lines. He had an astonishing capacity for creating believable characters, and he wasted little ink in putting his stories in motion. Maupassant was a master of "le mot juste", waiting until the perfect word came to him before setting his thoughts to paper. He was one of the first truly modern writers, and today his stories still resonate with enthusiasm and originality. In "Boule de Suif", set during the Franco-Prussian war, a group of French citizens attempt to flee Paris, but are detained in a small town unexpectedly by a Prussian officer who is attracted to Boule de Suif, a woman of ill repute. The attraction is not mutual and the Prussian obstinately keeps everyone at the inn. The basic instincts of clergy, middle class, and aristocrat are forced into the open as they plot their escape. In "At Sea", two brothers become entangled with the elements and greed aboard a fishing vessel. In "An Old Man", a self-centered old man carefully keeps tab of how other residents at his retirement home die. In "The Piece of String", when suspicion falls on a villager, he discovers that reputation weighs more heavily than fact. "Rust" is a very amusing tale of a hunter who falls in love only to discover a certain problem. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charlton Griffin.
