Silver Bay : a novel by Jojo Moyes( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in German and held by 16 libraries worldwide
"From the New York Times bestselling author of Me Before You and One Plus One, in an earlier work available in the U.S. for the first time, a surprising and moving romance set in an old-fashioned seaside town on the verge of unwelcome change Liza McCullen will never fully escape her past. But the unspoiled beaches and tight-knit community of Silver Bay offer the freedom and safety she craves-if not for herself, then for her young daughter, Hannah. That is, until Mike Dormer arrives as a guest in her aunt's hotel. The mild-mannered Englishman with his too-smart clothes and distracting eyes could destroy everything Liza has worked so hard to protect: not only the family business and the bay that harbors her beloved whales, but also her conviction that she will never love-never deserve to love-again. For his part, Mike Dormer is expecting just another business deal-an easy job kick-starting a resort in a small seaside town ripe for development. But he finds that he doesn't quite know what to make of the eccentric inhabitants of the ramshackle Silver Bay Hotel, especially not enigmatic Liza McCullen, and their claim to the surrounding waters. As the development begins to take on a momentum of its own, Mike's and Liza's worlds collide in this hugely affecting and irresistible tale full of Jojo Moyes's signature humor and generosity."--

Doch den eigenartigsten Fund macht Connie im Haus ihrer verstorbenen Grossmutter, das in der Nähe von Salem etwas abgelegen in einem kleinen Küstenstädtchen liegt: Hier entdeckt Connie ein vergilbtes Pergament, das sie auf die Spur eines alten Buches mit sonderbaren Formeln und Rezepten bringt. Als sich Connie näher mit dem Buch beschäftigt, kommt es plötzlich zu rätselhaften Ereignissen.

"At forty-eight, Eloise McAllister loves living alone. Successful, assertive and resolutely private, her days pass in a blur of adrenaline, especially when she gambles the company fortunes on a tip from an old lover. Her mother Joan is eighty, a gifted pianist denied the delights of performance by old age and arthritic joints." "Both women know that Joan can't live alone indefinitely. Eloise doesn't want strangers taking care of her mother, but she knows that doing so herself would be worse - so she has arranged a place for her at The Albany, a home for the elderly housed in a magnificent Victorian mansion." "Before Joan moves in, Eloise takes her on one last trip to South Africa, where a shopping centre is all that remains of the farm where Joan's brother lies buried. Joan's mind has been playing extraordinary tricks on her for some time. In the dust and heat, long-interred family spirits begin to stir, and back in London she escapes the tedium of institutional life by bringing these stories alive in her mind. Soon she has created a drama more real than anything her doctors could imagine."--BOOK JACKET

Caleb's crossing by Geraldine Brooks( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 6 libraries worldwide
In this novel, the author takes a remarkable shard of history and brings it to vivid life. In 1665, a young man from Martha's Vineyard became the first Native American to graduate from Harvard College. Upon this slender factual scaffold, she has created a tale of love and faith, magic and adventure. The narrator of the story is Bethia Mayfield, growing up in the tiny settlement of Great Harbor amid a small band of pioneers and Puritans. Restless and curious, she yearns after an education that is closed to her by her sex. As often as she can, she slips away to explore the island's glistening beaches and observe its native Wampanoag inhabitants. At twelve, she encounters Caleb, the young son of a chieftain, and the two forge a tentative secret friendship that draws each into the alien world of the other. Bethia's minister father tries to convert the Wampanoag, awakening the wrath of the tribe's shaman, against whose magic he must test his own beliefs. One of his projects becomes the education of Caleb, and a year later, Caleb is in Cambridge, studying Latin and Greek among the colonial elite. There, Bethia finds herself reluctantly indentured as a housekeeper and can closely observe Caleb's crossing of cultures. Bethia proves an emotionally irresistible guide to the wilds of Martha's Vineyard and the intimate spaces of the human heart
