The trouble with life is it's sooooooo not fair. And the trouble with being grounded is it's sooooooo boring. You absolutely can't go anywhere at all. No hopping jumping, flying or parachuting . . . Daisy's got ever so much time to think about what she's done. Really, if her pocket money hadn't run out and if someone hadn't dropped a strawberry dib-dab on the pavement and if strawberry dib-dabs weren't Daisy's absolutely favourite sweet . . . Who knew that it had invisible red germs that are so totally teensy and that Auntie Sue says give you tummy trouble? Daisy's trips to the loo are interspersed with hilarious musings about the trouble with everything, from her goldfish Freddie who thinks it's a dolphin, to the school name-caller Jack Beechwhistle, and hosepipes that don't do as they're told. Now, if only Daisy can find a word to rhyme with hippopotamus, she and Gabby can magic next door's cat into a hippo. When she's un-grounded and off the loo, of course . . .

Forty-Eight Land by Larry Dudley In June 1940, at the very moment the Nazis are occupying Paris, Roy Hawkins, a young Anglo-American agent working for MI6, receives orders rushing him to 48 Land British Intelligence's slang for the U.S. and its 48 states. Shaken by the fall of France, deeply disillusioned, angered and embittered by the West's failure to head off the Nazis, and fighting burnout, Hawkins learns Britain wants him undercover as an agent in his father's country. Outraged, he initially refuses he will not jeopardize his ability to return to the US but for a friend he agrees to take one temporary assignment. Forced to make himself a stranger in a land he wants to see as home, always on guard, Hawkins finds the America he expected to find is now an alien, topsy-turvey place obsessed with "Fortress America" with a powerful right wing on the rise. His alienation deepens when he trails a Nazi agent to the elite Saratoga racing meet, discovers rot beneath the glamor and glitter, and wonders if there's anyone left who isn't corrupt, including some of the nation's leading financiers and a powerful radio commentator. He's tempted to take a generous offer to join the F.B.I. and walk away. But when he discovers a conspiracy that jeopardizes everything America stands for, he has to act, even though he knows he may lose the great new love he's found.

In June 1940—eighteen months before the bombing of Pearl Harbor—Anglo American MI6 agent Roy Hawkins is mysteriously rushed from Nazi-occupied Paris to New York. Enraged at being ordered away from what he believes is the real fight against Nazism and Fascism, he wants to get back to Paris as soon as possible, even though he knows it means almost certain death. In New York he is shocked and sickened to encounter a now-alien America increasingly dominated by right-wing extremists, including a new radio celebrity, Walter Ventnor. After a tense encounter with his friend and mentor William Stephenson, he agrees to temporarily pursue a Nazi commercial envoy, Hans Ludwig, and try and stop him from stealing American submarine warfare secrets. Hawkins follows Ludwig to the elite Saratoga racing meeting, where Ludwig is cultivating top American business leaders. There he meets the scion of an ancient and aristocratic New York family, Daisy van Schenck. After persuading Daisy to throw Ludwig out of the mansion he has rented, Hawkins finds himself increasingly attracted to her, and to the possibility of a different life. When Hawkins discovers a Nazi plot to rig the presidential election, he is forced to choose between duty and the woman he loves.

"Like Trotsky, I did not leave home with the proverbial one-and-six in my pocket. I come from a family of landed gentry . . . [and] could have chosen the path of comfort and safety, for even in apartheid South Africa, there is still that path for those who will collaborate. But I chose the path of struggle and uncertainty."--from the Preface Born into the small social elite of black South Africa, Phyllis Ntantala did not face the grinding poverty so familiar to other South African blacks. Instead, her struggle was that of a creative, articulate woman seeking fulfillment and justice in a land that tried to deny her both. The widow of Xhosa writer and historian A.C. Jordan and mother of African National Congress leader Z. Pallo Jordan, she and her family experienced a period of tremendous change in South Africa and also in the United States, where they moved during the 1960s. She discovers similarities in the two countries, including the arrogance of power. Anchored in history and culture, A Life's Mosaic sharply reveals the world and the people of South Africa. As the story of a political exile, it represents the dislocations that have caused universal suffering in the second half of the twentieth century. Phyllis Ntantala discusses the cruelty of racism, the cynicism of political solutions, and the hopes of those who live in both a world of exile and a world of dreams.

Chapter I. Daisy Hanbury poked her parasol between the bars of the cage, with the amiable intention of scratching the tiger's back. The tiger could not be expected to know this all by himself, and so he savagely bit the end of it off, with diabolical snarlings. Daisy turned to her cousin with a glow of sympathetic pleasure. "What a darling!" she said. "He didn't understand, you see, and was perfectly furious. And it cost pounds and pounds, and I've spent all my allowance, and so I can't buy another, and my complexion will go to the dogs. Let's go there, too; the dingoes are absolutely fascinating. We'll come back to see these angels fed." Gladys laughed. "Daisy, you have got the most admirable temper," she said. "I should have called that brute any names except 'darling' and 'angel.'" "I know you would, because you don't understand either it or me. I understand both perfectly. You see, you don't love fierce wild things--things that are wicked and angry, and, above all, natural. I don't mind good, sweet, gentle things, like--oh, like almost everybody, if only they are sweet and good naturally. But generally they are not. Their sweetness is the result of education or morality, or something tedious, not the result of their natures, of themselves. Oh, I know all about it! Gladys, this parasol is beyond hope. Let's conceal it in the bushes like a corpse." Daisy looked round with a wild and suspicious eye.

The Daisy Chain is a three-part book.Part one is the story of Daisy Petty McIntyre, a courageous mother of four children. Widowed in 1912 in her early 30s, she was forced by circumstances to leave her cozy home in the Ozark Hills of Northwestern Arkansas, where she was surrounded by family and friends to wrest out a living in a large city where she knew few people.She soon learned that the many skills that served her well in the Ozarks had little financial value in earning a living for herself and her children in Kansas City. Daisy faced hardships and destitution, but she did it with great heart and fortitude, never letting her children see the fears and desolation she felt on an almost daily basis. Part two is the author's experiences growing up in the Great Depression years. Part three is a family genealogy.

“I am the bastard daughter of King Edward VIII, later the Duke of Windsor. The Crown may not agree, but my life and family history is worth telling.” Born to wealth and privilege in the countryside of England, Joy Drinkwater went from plenty to poverty when her stepfather abandoned her mother and made an astonishing claim…Drinkwater’s real father was the Kind of England, Edward VIII. Although the world remembers the Duke of Windsor for abdicating his throne in 1936 to marry American divorcee, Wallis Warfield Simpson, few know the story of the Princess Who Never Was. This riveting autobiography spans nearly eighty years and recounts Joy’s quest to prove her noble heritage in a rapidly changing world that refused to grant her any privileges. The adventures, loves, losses, and dreams of this remarkable woman are certain to captivate the hearts of readers and provoke controversy. The Royal Crown of England has never been asked to acknowledge Joy’s heritage as a legitimate Princess and will probably ban the sale of this autobiography in England.
