Local customs by Audrey Thomas( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Letitia Landon, "Letty" to her friends, is an intelligent, witty, successful writer, much sought after for dinner parties and soirées in the London of the 1830s. But, still single at thirty-six, she fears ending up as a wizened crone in a dilapidated country cottage, a cat her only companion. Just as she is beginning to believe she will never marry, she meets George Maclean, home on leave from his position as the governor of Cape Coast Castle on the Gold Coast of West Africa. George and Letty marry quietly and set sail for Cape Coast. Eight weeks later she is dead - not from malaria or dysentery or any of the multitude of dangers in her new home, but by her own hand. Or so it would seem. Local Customs examines, in poetic detail, a way of life that has faded into history. It was a time when religious and cultural assimilation in the British colonies gave rise to a new, strange social order. Letty speaks from beyond the grave to let the reader see the world through her eyes and explore the mystery of her death. Was she disturbed enough to kill herself, or was someone - or something - else involved?
I don't have time : 15-minute ways to shape a life you love by Emma Grey( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We live in a time of "hurry sickness". "Busy" has become a competitive sport, and it's a sport with no winners. Somewhere underneath all of this hard slog there are the things we really want to do; the things that bring us joy! And most of the time, the only thing standing between us doing we want want, is us. Through stories, theories, and practical exercises, I Don't Have Time explores 50 excuses we make that keep us from getting on with the things that really matter to us. These are the excuses that hold us back in our health and well-being, our careers, relationships, finances, home environments, personal development and recreation. With humor, anecdotes, research on productivity and Emma and Audrey's proven "My 15 Minutes" approach, this is a practical guide for ditching being overwhelmed, and making progress in all the areas that matter most. It flips the notion that we need great swathes of time to get ahead with things, instead encouraging us to use the nooks and crannies in our day to achieve big things over time
