Song of Rhanna

By Christine Marion Fraser

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

The fifth book in the Hebridian saga

Secure in the loving contentment of her marriage to Lorn, Ruth felt her happiness was complete. And she was thrilled to hear that her oldest friend, Rachel, planned a visit to Rhanna. Now a successful composer and concert violinist, Rachel was coming back to her native island for a summer's rest. To Ruth's surprise, Lorn was strangely unenthusiastic about their childhood friend's return.
Rachel's arrival was to bring Ruth more heartache than she could ever have imagined, and would estrange her from the island community she loved. Yet no matter how far she travelled, the Song of Rhanna would always be calling her home . . .
The fifth book in the popular series about Hebridean island life.

Modern Korea: All That Matters

Andrew Salmon
Authors:
Andrew Salmon

In no nation on earth has history accelerated with such speed as in Korea. A medieval dynasty at the end of the 19th century, it underwent a traumatic colonization, then, in its hour of liberation was divided by the great powers at the end of World War II. Devastated by a fratricidal war, the peninsula has remained divided ever since.South Korea is the greatest national success story of the 20th century. From the ashes of war, it transformed itself, against the odds - and against much advice - into an industrial powerhouse and thriving democracy. Now a high-tech wonderland, it is undergoing social and cultural transformations that add further layers to its dynamic DNA.North Korea is an economic, social and political disaster, successful only at totalitarianism. Having transmogrified from a blood-and-iron communist dictatorship into a bizarre, neo-fascist monarchy, it is a black hole at the heart of Asia. Engulfed by paranoia, the regime presides over a malnourished populace, a 1.1 million man army and a nuclear arsenal. From nuclear missiles to Samsung smartphones; from assassins to salarymen; from Kim Il-sung to Psy; this is the extraordinary story of the flashpoint peninsula that dominates talk in boardrooms and newsrooms. Korea, the author argues, provides two stark benchmarks for national development: Epic success and catastrophic failure. And its final chapter has yet to be written.

Half-Blood (The First Covenant Novel)

Jennifer L. Armentrout
Authors:
Jennifer L. Armentrout

HALF-BLOOD is the unputdownable first book in the acclaimed Covenant series from #1 New York Times bestselling Jennifer L. Armentrout. This special paperback edition also includes the prequel novella DAIMON. The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi - pure-bloods - have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals - well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures.Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden.Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem - staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

It is 1931 and the villagers of Kinvara are welcoming newcomers into their close-knit community. Schoolteacher Catherine Dunbar takes a great interest in the welfare and education of Andy Sutherland, who has cerebral palsy - and comes to have more than a passing interest in his father, Rob. Joshua Bowman is a less popular arrival, as he tries to force his strict principles and beliefs on his neighbours; and his wife Miriam - a native of Kinvara - has a dramatic effect on Johnny Lonely, to whom she was once married.But it is mainly on the children of Kinvara that the novel focuses, as they delight in the freedom and adventure of the beautiful coastal area, and grapple with the first stirrings of young and innocent love.'Christine Marion Fraser writes characters so real they almost leap out of the page...you would swear she must have grown up with them' Sun

The rugged beauty of the coast is a comfort and solace to Hannah, but can she reconcile herself to the fact that to Rob, she's always been second best and probably always would be.'Christine Marion Fraser writes characters so real they almost leap off the page...you would swear she must have grown up with them' Sun
