Out of the Easy is set against the vivid backdrop of 1950s New Orleans. Written by New York Times bestselling author Ruth Sepetys, this novel has something for everyone: love, mystery, murder, blackmail and warmth. Josie Moraine wants out of The Big Easy - she needs more than New Orleans can offer. Known locally as a brothel prostitute's daughter, she dreams of life at an elite college, far away from here. But then a mysterious death in the Quarter leaves Josie caught between her ambition and a clandestine underworld. New Orleans is luring Josie deeper in as she searches for the truth, and temptation beckons at every turn.

A hefty emotional punch' - The New York Times '. . . moving and heart-wrenching.' - The Guardian Ruta Sepetys was born and raised in Michigan and now lives with her family in Tennessee.

Tårar i havet by Ruta Sepetys( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in Swedish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historiens största fartygskatastrof är nästan helt okänd, trots att den krävde över 9 000 liv och inträffade bara 15 mil från den svenska kusten. RUTA SEPETYS har ägnat tre år åt arbetet med att skildra denna katastrof. Resultatet är Tårar i havet - en gripande berättelse, skriven med stor omsorg om de historiska detaljerna. I januari 1945 är tusentals människor i Ostpreussen på flykt undan sovjetiska trupper. Bland flyktingarna finns ungdomarna Joana, Emilia och Florian. De har olika bakgrund och bär alla på hemligheter, men deras vägar korsas och de finner mod och styrka hos varandra. Tillsammans försöker de ta sig till Wilhelm Gustloff - ett fartyg som kan föra dem till tryggheten västerut över Östersjön. Men katastrofen inträffar precis när de tror sig ha friheten inom räckhåll och då spelar varken nationalitet eller klasstillhörighet någon roll. De 10 000 passagerarna kämpar alla för samma sak - sin överlevnad. [Elib]
