Grace Bradley went to work at Riverton House as a servant when she was just a girl, before the First World War. For years her life was inextricably tied up with the Hartford family, most particularly the two daughters, Hannah and Emmeline. In the summer of 1924, at a glittering society party held at the house, a young poet shot himself. The only witnesses were Hannah and Emmeline and only they--and Grace--know the truth. In 1999, when Grace is ninety-eight years old and living out her last days in a nursing home, she is visited by a young director who is making a film about the events of that summer. She takes Grace back to Riverton House and reawakens her memories.--From publisher description

Greek architecture and its sculpture by Ian Jenkins( Book )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
"Drawing on the Greek and Lycian architecture and sculpture in the British Museum - a collection second to none in quality, quantity, and geographical and chronological range - this lavishly illustrated volume tells a remarkable story reaching from the archaic temple of Artemis, the Parthenon, and other temples of the Athenian Acropolis to the temple of Apollo at Bassai, the sculptured tombs of Lycia, the Mausoleum, and the temple of Athena Polias at Priene. Ian Jenkins explains each as a work of art and as a historical phenomenon, revealing how the complex personality of these buildings is bound up with the people who funded, desisted, built, used, destroyed, discovered, and studied them. With 250 photographs and specially commissioned line drawings, the book comprises a monumental narrative of the art and architecture that gave form, direction, and meaning to much of Western culture."--Jacket

Eine unheilvolle Lüge, eine verbotene Sehnsucht, ein geheimes Verbrechen England, Greenacres Farm 1961: Während einer Familienfeier am Flussufer beobachtet die junge Laurel, wie ein Fremder das Grundstück betritt und ihre Mutter aufsucht. Kurz darauf ist der idyllische Frieden des Ortes jäh zerstört. Erst fünfzig Jahre später gesteht sich Laurel beim Anblick eines alten Fotos ein, dass sie damals Zeugin eines Verbrechens wurde. Doch was genau geschah an jenem lang zurückliegenden Sommertag? Weltbestseller-Autorin Kate Morton erschafft eine einzigartige Welt, in der die Vergangenheit die Gegenwart nicht loslässt. Als Laurel nach langer Zeit anlässlich des neunzigsten Geburtstags ihrer Mutter Dorothy in ihr Elternhaus zurückkehrt, holen sie schon bald verdrängte Erinnerungen ein. Der Gedanke an den geheimnisvollen Fremden, der fünfzig Jahre zuvor Unheil über ihre Familie brachte, lässt sie nicht mehr los. Sie ist entschlossen, endlich das Rätsel um die Vergangenheit ihrer Mutter zu lösen. Ein Foto aus dem Jahr 1941 scheint der Schlüssel zu sein: Es zeigt Dorothy in London, Arm in Arm mit einer Frau namens Vivien. Warum zerbrach die Freundschaft der beiden Frauen? Und wer ist Jimmy, den Dorothy wohl sehr liebte und doch vor der Familie verbarg? Auf der Suche nach Antworten muss Laurel erfahren, dass sie sich immer in ihrer Mutter getäuscht hat ... In ihrem neuen grossen Roman erzählt Kate Morton eine mitreissende Geschichte, die von den 1930ern bis in die Gegenwart reicht und von einer kleinen Farm in Suffolk bis nach Australien führt
