Book Summary :

"You think you know me. You think you want to know me. But trust me, Miss Lang. Pursuing me will be the worst mistake you ever make. I'm broken beyond repair... ...and I take great pleasure in breaking everyone else around me." Ophelia Lang needs money, and she needs it bad. Her parent's restaurant is going under, and ever since she lost her job teaching third grade elementary, scraping enough cash together to pay the bills has proven almost impossible. Her parents are on the brink of losing their home. The vultures are circling overhead. So when Ophelia is offered an interview for a well-paid private tutoring gig in New York, how can she possibly say no? Ronan Fletcher is far from the overweight, balding businessman Ophelia expected him to be. He's young, handsome, and wealthy beyond all reason. He's also perhaps the coldest, rudest person she's ever met, and has a mean streak in him a mile and a half wide. A hundred grand is a lot of money, however, and if tolerating his frosty temperament, his erratic mood swings and whatever else he throws at her means she'll get paid, then that is what Ophelia will do. Her new boss is keeping secrets, though. Awful, terrible secrets. The ghosts of Ronan Fletcher's past are about to turn Ophelia's future upside down, and she can't even see it coming.

Book Summary :

Barrows, as burial markers, are ubiquitous throughout North-Western Europe. In some regions dense concentrations of monuments form peculiar configurations such as long alignments while in others they are spread out extensively, dotting vast areas with hundreds of mounds. These vast barrow landscapes came about through thousands of years of additions by several successive prehistoric and historic communities. Yet little is known about how these landscapes developed and came about. That is what this research set out to do. By unravelling the histories of specific barrow landscapes in the Low Countries, several distinct activity phases of intense barrow construction could be recognised. Each of these phases contributed in a particular fashion to how the barrow landscape developed and reveals shifting attitudes to these landscape monuments. By creating new monuments in a specific place and in a particular fashion, prehistoric communities purposefully transformed the form and shape of the barrow landscape. Using several GIS-techniques such as a skyline-analysis, this research was able to demonstrate how each barrow then took up a specific (and different) position within such a social landscape. While the majority of the barrows were only visible from relatively close by, specific monuments took up a dominating position, cresting the horizon, and they were visible from much further away. It was argued that these burial mounds remained important landscape monuments on the purple heathlands. They continued to attract attention, and by their visibility ensured to endure in the collective memory of the communities shaping themselves around these monuments. This publication is part of the Ancestral Mounds Research Project of the University of Leiden.

Book Summary :

"Who is better off? The person who looks for happiness through buying a new car or new clothes? Or he who has just enough to live on, and has time to spend laughing and joking with friends in the shade of a tree? Is there not a greater social dignity in the respect they pay to the elderly and the less fortunate?". Travelling gives us many answers, but it can also give rise to many questions. This is the story of the adventure of an engineer, a traveller. A car accident helps him understand that now is the time for self-fulfilment. The author starts from the house where he grew up in Northern Italy and goes on a journey far away from the tourist circuits. On his way, he travels over the Sahara and crosses the heart of the continent - the equatorial forest - until he reaches the farthest/southernmost point where the Atlantic and Indian oceans embrace. Overall, he covers 25,000 kilometres in 615 days and gets through 11 tyres and 8 chains. During the journey, he is arrested and even bedridden with malaria for twenty days. However, each person he meets provides a moment for exchange; forging bonds that are strengthened around a campfire. There is only the simplicity of life and a welcoming smile, in the search for new questions where it all began, in Africa. The book includes a chapter written by his mother, Carla Villata. Toubabou, with its variants (toubab, tubaap...), is a word used by many West African peoples to designate a white-skinned person, a European.

Book Summary :

GRACE ON THE HORIZON is the second full-length novel in The White Sails Series. Grace and Seamus, united by their past experiences, are adrift on a raft of shame in the sea of 1830s London society. After a personal tragedy, Grace’s desperation to leave London forces Seamus to accept a dubious commission on the private explorer, Clover. With the expedition financed by Colonel Hamilton and his private backers, Seamus is tasked with mapping a round-the-world voyage. But Colonel Hamilton has an additional package that requires delivering—Father Babcock—a priest wanted for murder. The church wants Babcock transported far from England to set up a new mission in South America. Battling his overprotectiveness, Seamus breaks his oath to always tell Grace the truth and hides Babcock’s identity from her. But the journey aboard the Clover is far from smooth sailing, and Grace suspects a saboteur. Trapped within the ship’s confines, she must learn to forgive her husband's well-intentioned duplicity and determine who wishes them harm—because now she also has her unborn child to protect. Is it an aggrieved member of the Admiralty who believes Seamus disgraced the service by resigning his command to chase after Grace? Perhaps Grace’s father, Lord Flint, seeking revenge against her for ruining the family name? Or a jealous suitor determined to ruin the life Grace is trying to build with Seamus? From the damp cobbled streets of London, around the freezing stormy tip of Cape Horn, and into the scorching dusty bush of New Holland, GRACE ON THE HORIZON promises another adventure on the high seas, bursting with action and suspense. It is historical women's fiction that will appeal to fans of the strong female protagonist in Outlander and and Poldark.

This project took James Rink three years and thousands of hours of editing and reediting to complete it.Part 1 - Dawn of the Golden Age - discusses how Saint Germain helped to bring about the beginnings of an enlightened era which soon fell into darkness under the realms of the Illuminati and a corrupted Masonic order.Part 2 - The American Federal Empire - shows that America was always meant to be a shinning beacon of prosperity and freedom to the world. But the machinations of British bankers and the Rothschild dynasty soon destroyed all that was once good in this great land.Part 3 - The Farmers Claim Program - Discusses how a class action lawsuit, brought about in the early 1990's, led to the creation of NESARA, the National Economic Security and Reformation Act, which will ultimately tear the New World Order apart, and the international bankers' plans from under their feet.David E.
