Dovid Meyer

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/dovid-meyer...
You will be moved by the heartrending stories of Elisheva and Sarah, separated by distance, living wildly different lives in the poverty-stricken Mea Shearim quarter of Jerusalem and the wealthy mansion in London's Hampstead, brought together by destiny-both stirring examples of the true Jewish mother. You will love adventurous Dovid Moyer, the orphaned Bar Mitzva boy, whose courage and inventiveness will delight you and your children. Running away from home he finds himself in saving others. You will laugh with Odel, the funniest Hungarian cook in fiction, whose motto in life is 'pray and eat, eat and pray' and you will be moved as she recounts her astonishing adventures on her flight from Communist Hungary. You will admire the brilliant and rich Charles Kalman, dignified in adversity and always willing to learn and change. You will be captivated by Reb Yitzchok the tailor, a character from bygone times, who does more for his neighbours with his simplicity and untutored goodness than many a psychiatrist. You will share in the dangerous but exhilarating drive from Lod airport with a taxi driver more used to the war -torn desert paths of Sinai. You will live through an autopsy performed on a still-born baby and the storm it arouses. A wide panorama of Jewish life, past and present, seen through many enthralling stories and anecdotes will delight readers of all ages. This brilliant portrayal of the lives of young orphans and a despairing widow is shot through with humour and hope - the trust and hope which have sustained Jews throughout history.

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/meyer-berger-s-new-york-2...
Meyer (Mike) Berger was one of the greatest journalists of this century. A reporter and columnist for The New York Times for thirty years, he won a Pulitzer Prize in 1950 for his account of the murder of thirteen people by a deranged war veteran in Camden, New Jersey. Berger is best known for his About New York column, which appeared regularly in the Times from 1939 to 1940 and from 1953 until his death in 1959. Through lovingly detailed snapshots of ordinary New Yorkers and far corners of the city, Berger's writing deeply influenced the next generation of writers, including Gay Talese and Tom Wolfe. Originally published in 1960 and long out of print, Meyer Berger's New York is a rich collection of extraordinary journalism, selected by Berger himself, which captures the buzz, bravado, and heartbreak of New York in the fifties in the words of the best-loved reporter of his time. Mike Berger was one of the great reporters of our day. he was a master of the color story, the descriptive narrative of sights and sounds-of a parade, an eclipse, a homicidal maniac running amok. or just a thunderstorm that broke a summer heat wave. -The New York Times, obituary, February 6, 1959Dip into Meyer Berger's New York, at any point, and you will find things you never knew or dreamed of knowing. . It has a heart, a soul, and a beauty all its own-Phillip Hamburger, The New York Times Book Review

What a Rich Woman Wants

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/what-a-rich-woman-wants...
He knows she's out of his reach. Until she reaches out to him. Braddock Brotherhood, Book 4Right about the time Lesley Robinson's father's stroke left her in charge of his Fortune 500 company, she adopted her housekeeper's sick baby and divorced her philandering husband. She's survived the past six years by building an impenetrable wall around her emotions. But when a hunk of a sheriff's deputy turns up at her office to apply for a grant from the company's foundation, her distrust of men and relationships takes a direct hit. Niko Morales clawed his way out of gang life to build a new one grounded in law enforcement and a passion to help disadvantaged youth. So, Lesley needs a companion for an upcoming social occasion? He's no gigolo, but for his community center, and maybe for her, he'll wear the monkey suit. Without any apparent effort at all, Niko sneaks under Lesley's cool fa├žade, shaking up everything she believed about herself. But when their relationship is threatened by the sins of others, they'll both have to step up-and out of their comfort zones. Or they'll lose the one thing they want most: each other. Warning: Contains a sexy cop in a tuxedo who lets a powerful businesswoman entangle him in more than just her bedsheets.

Japan

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/japan-49...
The emergence of Japan as a political and economic global power has been one of the most remarkable success stories of modern history. Though small in geographic area, the archipelago is the tenth most populous country, with 128 million inhabitants crowded into an area the size of Montana. Its natural resources are almost nonexistent, yet today it ranks only second after the much larger United States as the most affluent and economically productive nation in the world. Its rich cultural heritage and high-tech society are equally vibrant. For all readers wanting to better understand this dynamic country, this popular and accessible introduction offers an authoritative yet concise overview of two thousand years of Japanese history. Now fully updated to the present, this edition also includes an array of photographs and illustrations. The first half of the book explores the pre-Meiji era up to 1868. The second half traces domestic changes and relevant foreign issues in the modernizing era launched by the Meiji Restoration. Highlighting key historical events, Milton W. Meyer also includes cultural, artistic, and religious milestones. Summaries and datelines at the end of each chapter, as well as a glossary, offer additional essential reference points. With its clear explanations of Japanese traditions, religion, history, economics, politics, and relations with the West, this book provides an invaluable guide for understanding contemporary Japan.

Marie, Dancing

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/audiobook/marie-dancing...
Dancing with the Paris Opera ballet is 14-year-old Marie van Goethem's greatest joy. And yet she must honor her father's dying request to keep their poverty-stricken family together. She certainly can't count on the help of her drunken mother or selfish older sister. When famous artist Edgar Degas asks Marie to model for a sculpture, she welcomes the income-although she's hesitant to pose nude. Her bi-weekly visits to Degas' cluttered art studio introduce her to unimagined wonders and mysteries. But when the sculpture is finished, she refuses to be a rich man's mistress. She instead earns honest income as a seamstress while hoping for her chance at true love. An award-winning author of more than 50 books, Carolyn Meyer captivates young adults with her vivid historical fiction. Using actual details about the ballerina Degas immortalized as Little Dancer Aged Fourteen, Meyer creates a seamless narrative of Marie's life as it might have been in 1870s Paris. "As with her Young Royals series, Meyer's ability to sweep readers to another time and place while bringing historic figures to life once again results in a mesmerizing novel."-Publishers Weekly, starred review

The Work of Wolves

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-work-of-wolves...
When fourteen-year-old Carson Fielding bought his first horse from Magnus Yarborough, it became clear that the teenager was a better judge of horses than the rich landowner was of humans. Years later, Carson, now a skilled and respected horse trainer, grudgingly agrees to train Magnus's horses and teach his wife to ride. But as Carson becomes disaffected with the power-hungry Magnus, he also grows more and more attracted to the rancher's wife, and their relationship sets off a violent chain of events that unsettles their quiet reservation border town in South Dakota. Thrown into the drama are Earl Walks Alone, an Indian trying to study his way out of the reservation and into college, and Willi, a German exchange student confronting his family's troubled history. In this unforgettable story of horses, love, and life, Carson and the entire ensemble of characters learn, in very different ways, about the strong bonds that connect people to each other and to the land on which they live.
