Cornwall 1813. A silver cup lies half-forgotten in a dark cave, amongst a pile of stolen goods. Yet the tiny vessel and its inscription 'Amor gignit amorem' haunts the lives of the still-feuding Poldark and Warleggan families, as Ross, Demelza and the ambitious and powerful Sir George Warleggan watch their children make the decisions that will shape their destinies. In the closing years of the wars against Napoleon, for Jeremy and Clowance, and for arrogant, cynical Valentine Warleggan, these are troubled and momentous times.
'From the incomparable Winston Graham...who has everything that anyone else has, and then a whole lot more' - "Guardian".
The New York Times bestselling story of the friendship and rivalry between golf legends Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus, whose sparring matches defined the sport for more than a decade.
The first time they met, at an exhibition match in 1967, Tom Watson was a seventeen-year-old high school student and Jack Nicklaus, at twenty-seven, was already the greatest golfer in the world. Though they shared some similarities, they differed in many ways. Nicklaus played a game of consummate control and precision. Watson hit the ball all over the place. Nicklaus lacked charm and theatrics, and he was thoroughly despised by most golf fans because he had displaced Arnold Palmer as king of the golf world. Watson was one of those Arnold Palmer fans. Yet over the next twenty years their seemingly divergent paths collided as they battled against each other again and again for a place at the top of the sport and drove each other to ever-soaring heights of accomplishment.
Spanning from that first match through the "Duel in the Sun" at Turnberry in 1977 to Watson's miraculous near-victory at Turnberry as he approached sixty, and informed by interviews with both players over many years, The Secret of Golf is Joe Posnanski's intimate account of the most remarkable rivalry and (eventual) friendship in modern golf.
'The perfect summer read...Gorgeously compelling' Good Housekeeping 'Full of mystery and long-reaching shadows of the past ...richly drawn and compelling' Rosanna Ley Rome, 1950s. One fateful night, Hal Jacobs meets Stella, a beautiful society darling from New York. To Hal, flailing in the post-war darkness, she's a point of light. They're from different worlds, but both trying and failing to carve out a new life. Stella vanishes all too quickly, until a curious invitation from an Italian Contessa reels her back into Hal's world. They join the Contessa's collection of luminaries on a yacht headed for Cannes film festival. The scene on board is a fiction - scars from the war can be hidden yet not healed. Everyone is hiding a dark history, but Stella's secrets run the deepest. Compelled by her fragile beauty, Hal is determined to bring back the girl she once was, the girl who's been confined to history. The Invitation is an epic love story that will transport you from the glamour of the Italian Riviera, to the darkness of war-torn Spain, and to a golden - if rather haunted - time.
Perfect for fans of Kate Morton and Victoria Hislop.
Mørk og burleskt fra en ny, stor fortellerstemme. Oregon, 1851. Brødrene Eli og Charlie Sisters er profesjonelle leiemordere, på vei til California for å gjennomføre oppdraget de har fått av den mystiske og mektige mannen som går under tilnavnet Kommandanten. Målets navn er Hermann Kermit Warm, en gullgraver som har oppdaget en revolusjonerende ny metode for å finne det edle metallet. På vei gjennom det golde landskapet kommer de to brødrene opp i den ene episoden mer bisarr og voldelig enn den andre. Men mens Charlie ganske enkelt rydder unna alt som står mellom ham og målet, begynner Eli etter hvert å få stadig større skrupler ... Sisters-brødrene er en western skrevet slik brødrene Cohen ville ha gjort det ? med et unikt blikk for merkelige detaljer og komiske opptrinn, men allikevel med en språklig presisjon og i bunn og grunn et eksistensielt alvor som ikke kan unngå å berøre.
