Description:
In The Confederates the story is named after 8 avaricious chieftains who form a league among themselves, for the sole purpose of lining their pockets by unethical, if not illegal, means. Their attempt is foiled by an impecunious old farmer who, ironically, uses bribery to defeat corruption and secure his son's rights.One of the essential themes of Hen-Thorir is epitomised in the saying 'Evil comes of evil men.' A miserly landowner refuses to sell his spare hay to others in need, and his selfishness leads to a series of bloody events, including murder, arson, treachery and battle.

The Sultan has commissioned a cadre of the most acclaimed artist in the land to create a great book celebrating the glories of his realm. Their task: to illuminate the work in the European style. But because figurative art can be deemed an affront to Islam, this commission is a dangerous proposition. And when one of the chosen miniaturists disappears, the only clue to the mystery lies in the half-finished illuminations themselves.

Description:
It was only 4,000 years ago when, for the first time in history, homes of the living replaced tombs of the dead as the most permanent human-made features of the landscape. The key was the shift from stone to bronze, in tools from axes to swords. Over 100 photos and drawings freshly document these years of British prehistory, when vast forests were hewn into managed woodlands, and effective weapons helped defend forts and settlements. Archeologists interpret recent challenging, tantalizing evidence that shows how farmers and villagers perfected the making and manufacture of metals, and invented hundreds of practical uses.

Description:
London, 1905: The city is alight with change, and the Stephen siblings - Vanessa, Virginia, Thoby, and Adrian - bring together a sparkling coterie of artists and intellectuals who will come to be known as the Bloomsbury Group. At the center of this charmed circle are the devoted, gifted sisters: Vanessa, the painter, and Virginia, the writer. But the landscape shifts when Vanessa unexpectedly falls in love and the eerily possessive yet brilliant Virginia careens toward self-destruction and madness. As tragedy and betrayal threaten to destroy the family, Vanessa must decide if it is finally time to protect her own happiness above all else.

Description:
Sixty-nine year old Arthur Pepper lives a simple life. He gets out of bed at precisely 7;30am, just as he did when his wife, Miriam, was alive. He dresses in the same gray slacks and mustard sweater-vest, waters his fern, Frederica, and heads out to his garden. But on the one-year anniversary of Miriam's death, something changes. Sorting through Miriam's possessions, he finds an exquited gold charm bracelet he's never seen before. What follows is a surprising and unforgettable odyssey that takes Arthur from London to Paris and as far as India in an epic quest to find out the truth about his wife's secret life before they met - a journey that leads him to find hope, healing and self-discovery in the most unexpected places.
