The eclipse by Stephenie Meyer( Visual )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michael Farr (Ciarán Hinds), a teacher raising his two kids alone since his wife died two years earlier, has been seeing and hearing strange things late at night. He isn't sure if he is having nightmares, or if he's experiencing a haunting. Working as a volunteer for an international literary festival, he is assigned to Lena Morelle (Iben Hjejle), an author of books about ghosts and the supernatural. Establishing a rapport with one another, Michael opens up and shares his terrifying experiences with her. However, Lena's attention is distracted by another novelist, Nicholas Holden (Aidan Quinn), with whom she had a brief affair. The trajectories of these three people lead them into a life-altering collision where the challenges of love, fear of the unknown, and release from the burden of grief are explored

Set in a rural Ireland in 1962, Lay Me Down Softly takes us into the burlesque world of boxing booth of Delaney's Travelling Roadshow, affectionately known as "The Academy." We dip down the shadowy, ropey avenues to the sound of the churning calliope, where we encounter the play's cast of dangerous characters: Theo, the charismatic, jealous, and violent ringmaster; his Carmen-esque lover, Lily; Peader, Theo's old, tired, and not-so-trusted sidekick; the vain and boastful prize-fighter Dean; and the limping, Adonis-like Junior. Into this world comes Emer, a wounded waif of a girl who has come in search of her long-lost father. Her presence and the arrival of a professional boxer threaten to upset the already shaky equilibrium
On such as we by Billy Roche( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Oweney's barbershop and the rooms to let above it offer refuge to a host of lonely hearts: a recently laid-off hotel night porter, an angry young artist, an orphan girl, a wounded old widower, a likeable bruiser and the beautiful Maeve. All of them in their various ways fall under Oweney's loving spell." "Set, as are all of Billy Roche's plays, in a small town in southern Ireland, On Such As We is the first piece by him to be premiered at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, since The Cavalcaders in 1993. It opened in the Peacock in December 2001 in a production directed by Wilson Milam."--Jacket
