The Underground Railroad

Colson WhiteheadCora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. Life is hellish for all the slaves but especially bad for Cora; an outcast even among her fellow Africans, she is coming into womanhood - where even greater pain awaits. When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape. Matters do not go as planned and, though they manage to find a station and head north, they are being hunted.

In Whitehead's ingenious conception, the Underground Railroad is no mere metaphor - engineers and conductors operate a secret network of tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil. Cora and Caesar's first stop is South Carolina, in a city that initially seems like a haven - but the city's placid surface masks an insidious scheme designed for its black denizens. Even worse: Ridgeway, the relentless slave catcher, is close on their heels. Forced to flee again, Cora embarks on a harrowing flight, state by state, seeking true freedom.

As Whitehead brilliantly re-creates the unique terrors for black people in the pre-Civil War era, his narrative seamlessly weaves the saga of America from the brutal importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of the present day. The Underground Railroad is at once a kinetic adventure tale of one woman's ferocious will to escape the horrors of bondage and a shattering, powerful meditation on the history we all share.

En tillfällig lösning

Denise RudbergLisens liv är perfekt. Hon lever i ett lyckligt äktenskap, har en välartad dotter och karriären på pr-byrån pekar spikrakt uppåt.
Teddy lever en annan sorts dröm. Han är en sorglös, stormrik och arbetsskygg arvtagare vars största existentiella dilemma är vilken skinnklädsel han ska ha i sin nästa sportbil.
Under ett och samma dygn rämnar tillvaron för både Lisen och Teddy, och av en slump möts deras vägar. Dock förstår de sig inte alls på varandra. Lisen är stel och irriterande präktig, medan Teddy är självisk och häpnadsväckande ansvarslös. Sakta men säkert byggs emellertid en oväntad vänskap upp.
Under några omtumlande månader får vi följa deras historia från varsitt håll - vartannat kapitel är skrivet ur Lisens perspektiv och vartannat ur Teddys.

Boots and Buckles (Ugly Stick Saloon, #6)

Myla JacksonSometimes, a girl has to take more than one bull by the horns.

Ugly Stick Saloon, Book 6

Mona Daley has had her fill of rodeo cowboys. Especially after Grant Raleigh and his partner blew through town three years ago. A torrid affair, a promise to return, then...nothing.

Chalking it up to girl-in-every-town syndrome, she swore off buckle-bearing cowpokes and never looked back. Now she’s working nights at the Ugly Stick Saloon to make enough money to save her beauty salon.

Grant has plans for his return to Mona’s life, plans that include groveling at her feet for another chance. Except his roping partner, Sam Whitefeather, gets to her first—and it looks like they’ve hit it off.

If he thought Mona didn’t harbor feelings for him, Grant would be the decent guy, step aside, and let her be happy. But one look, one touch on the dance floor and he finds himself falling all over again. He’s determined to prove his sincerity and that he’s the better man for her. Even if it means squaring off in the hottest arena imaginable—the bedroom.

Warning: The rodeo’s coming to town and there’s nothing two hot cowboys can’t do with a rope, a willing woman, and a lot of imagination.

¿Quién es Jesús? (Preguntas Cruciales)

R.C. Sproul

¿Un fraude, un demente… o Dios encarnado?

Ninguna persona en la historia ha ocasionado evaluaciones tan diametralmente divergentes como Jesús de Nazaret. Algunos dicen que él fue un astuto fraude, mientras que otros dicen que no debe haber estado en sus cabales. En muchos casos, su historia ha sido alterada para adaptarse a las fantasías de quienes intentan convertirlo en aliado de un sinnúmero de causas militantes.

عداء الطائرة الورقية

Khaled Hosseiniنبذة الناشر: عداء الطائرة الورقية عمل روائي لا ينسى يصحبنا في رحلة إلى أفغانستان منذ أواخر العصر الملكي وحتى صعود حركة طالبان واستيلائها على الحكم. إنها قصة صداقة تنشأ بين صبيين يشبان معًا في كابول، في دار واحدة، ولكن في عالمين مختلفين. فأمير هو ابن رجل أعمال ثري، أما حسن فهو ابن خادمهم الذي ينتمي إلى الهزاره، الأقلية العرقية المنبوذة. ولكن عندما يغزو السوفييت أفغانستان، ويهرب أمير ووالده من البلاد بحثًا عن حياة جديدة في الولايات المتحدة، ويظن أمير أنه نجح أخيرًا في الفرار من السر الذي يؤرقه، تعود ذكرى حسن لتطارده. عداء الطائرة الورقية رواية عن الصداقة، والخيانة، وثمن الوفاء. إنها رواية عن الروابط بين الآباء والأبناء، عن الحقيقية التي تتكشف مهما حاول الناس إخفاءها، تصف لنا ثراء الثقافة وجمال الطبيعة في بلاد صارت خرابًا. لكن مع الدمار، يمنحنا خالد حسيني الأمل، من خلال إيمان الرواية بقوة القراءة والحكي، ومن خلال الدرب المفتوح للتكفير عن الذنوب.

Agnès Martin-LugandDiane seems to have the perfect life. She is a wife, a mother, and the owner of Happy People Read and Drink Coffee, a cozy literary cafe in Paris. But when she suddenly loses her beloved husband and daughter in a tragic car accident, the world as she knows it instantly vanishes. Trapped and haunted by her memories, Diane retreats from friends and family, unable and unwilling to move forward.
But one year later, Diane shocks her loved ones and makes the surprising decision to move to a small town on the Irish coast, finally determined to heal and rebuild her life alone—until she meets Edward, the attractive yet taciturn Irish photographer who lives next door. At first abrasive and unwelcoming, Edward initially resents Diane’s intrusion into his life of solitude . . . until he can no longer keep her at arm’s length, and they fall into a surprising and tumultuous romance. But will it last when Diane leaves Ireland, and Edward, for the home she once ran away from in Paris? At once heartbreaking and uplifting, Diane’s story is deeply felt, reminding us that love remembered is love enduring.
