The two new owners are thrust into a mind-expanding adventure through the ages - medieval East Anglia, Scotland, France and India. In each instance they experience significant junctions in their lives past, to remember and redress ripples of karma they set in motion, and thwart an evil entity that still threatens their present day lives.Their journey exposes a cursed love affair spanning one thousand years and ten thousand miles.  Only the full realisation of their own short comings will prevent the tragic reoccurring outcome of their immortal bind.

The Last Straw
Christmas is supposed to be a season of love, warm feelings, and happy hearts. But with the children’s constant bickering, pretty packages and a sweet-smelling tree don’t come close to filling the McDonald home with the true spirit of the first Christmas. Then Mom remembers an old tradition of building a soft bed for Baby Jesus one straw at a time. Each time someone secretly does something nice for another family member, he or she gets to add a single straw to the manger. Soon the children’s quarreling and negative feelings subside and the homemade crib is overflowing. But for one family member, a required act of kindness becomes more than he can take. The Last Straw is a true story. The McDonald kids are now grown, but the story lives on in other homes around the world, where the tradition of putting straw in a manger is a cherished way to teach children the real meaning of Christmas. So gather your loved ones around and share this heartwarming story about how one family rediscovers the true spirit of Christmas. It may forever change the way your own family celebrates the holiday season.

The Hurlers: The First All-Ireland Championship and the Making of Modern Hurling
In 1882, a letter was published in the Irish Times, lamenting the decline of hurling. The game was now played only in a few isolated rural pockets, and according to no fixed set of rules. It would have been absurd to imagine that, within five years, an all-Ireland hurling championship would be underway, under the auspices of a powerful national organization.The Hurlers is a superbly readable account of that dramatic turn of events, of the colourful men who made it happen, and of the political intrigues and violent rows that marked the early years of the GAA. From the very start, republican and ecclesiastical interests jockeyed for control, along with a small core of enthusiasts who were just in it for the sport. In this authoritative and seriously entertaning book, Paul Rouse shows how sport, culture and politics swirled together in a heady, often chaotic mix.'Fascinating ... a brilliantly researched book on hurling in the early years of the GAA' Martin Breheny, Irish Independent 'I heartily recommend it. Great picture of the emergence of modern Ireland amidst sport, nationalism, priests and assorted crazy hotheads ... Brilliant stuff' Dara Ó Briain 'A story of pioneerism, passion, intrigue, skulduggery and commitment ... a must read for the many sports, and particularly hurling, supporters and admirers in today's version of Ireland' Irish Times'Terrific' Kieran Shannon, Irish Examiner 'Brilliantly entertaining ... not just the gripping account of that first championship, but also of how the game of hurling itself was saved in the 1880s from what seemed certain extinction' Sunday Independent 'A brilliant piece of work' Matt Cooper'Both a sports and a history book, full of wonderful stories from a different time, with tales of passion, skullduggery and controversy, played out against the backdrop of what could be described as a civil war within the GAA and a land war that threatened to rip the country apart' RTÉ Culture 'Fascinating' Frank McNally, Irish Times'A page turner that continues to deliver chapter after chapter ... The Hurlers is a must read' Limerick Leader'A superbly readable account ... an authoritative and seriously entertaining book' Ireland's Own 'The perfect read for a brilliant hurling year' Caitriona Lally, Irish Independent Top Books of 2018'A vital look into the early years of the GAA and a perfect gift for both sport and history lovers' Mark Gallagher, Mail on Sunday Books of 2018'Marries forensic historical research of the cultural and political contexts for the emergence of modern hurling with a polished style and storytelling ability that is rare among historians' Diarmaid Ferriter, Irish Times Books of 2018'Flows along far more merrily and lightly than any history book has a right to and is especially enlightening when it comes to drawing the founding fathers Michael Cusack and Maurice Davin' Malachy Clerkin, Irish Times, Sports Books of 2018 'Marvellous ... the definitive account of this remarkable period when hurling came to life' Clonmel Nationalist'Brilliant' Kenny Archer, Irish News

Conspiración: Cómo Rusia ayudó a Trump a ganar las elecciones (Spanish Edition)
En Conspiración, el galardonado periodista Luke Harding, relata la convulsa historia que desvela en exclusiva las estrechas relaciones de la administración Trump con Moscú, y el juego político puesto en marcha por Rusia desde hace décadas para desestabilizar la democracia estadounidense. Moscú. Julio de 1987. El multimillonario magnate neoyorquino visita Rusia por primera vez, invitado por el gobierno soviético. Londres. Diciembre de 2016. Luke Harding se reúne en secreto con el exagente del MI6 Christopher Steele en un pub londinense para hablar sobre las conexiones entre Rusia y el recién elegido presidente Donald J. Trump. Harding trabaja en dos líneas de investigación: el dinero y las mujeres. Washington. Enero de 2017. El explosivo dossier elaborado por Steele expone que el Kremlin ha estado «cultivando, apoyando y ayudando» a Trump durante años y que tienen información comprometedora sobre su persona. Trump responde en Twitter «¡NOTICIA FALSA!». Valiéndose de información confidencial y de su amplio conocimiento sobre los círculos de poder, el autor expone los sórdidos detalles de un enredo colosal que involucra espías rusos, gángsters, concursos de belleza, blanqueo de dinero, disidentes envenenados y hackeo de ordenadores, y arroja luz sobre poderosas figuras rusas como Aras Agalarov, Natalia Veselnitskaya, Serguéi Kisliak, Serguéi Gorkov e Ígor Sechin, cuyas motivaciones e instrucciones seguramente provienen de Vladímir Putin. El fiscal especial, Robert Mueller, ya ha presentado acusaciones contra varios de los protagonistas estadounidenses de esta supuesta conspiración, incluido el jefe de campaña de Trump, Paul Manafort, y es muy probable que sigan más conforme se va agudizando la crisis en el seno de la ejecutiva del presidente. Este libro llega al corazón de uno de los mayores escándalos políticos de la era moderna. Rusia está moldeando un nuevo orden mundial a su favor que pone de relieve la fragilidad de las democracias. Entender lo que ocurre es el primer paso para combatirlo.

Clash In The Baltic: Ian Fleming's Secret Mission
"As always, recommended." Library Journal "His special gift to carry the reader along can be simultaneously dramatic and objective." Publishers Weekly In the dying embers of World War Two, Winston Churchill orders Special Intelligence Service Commander Ian Fleming to mount a daring rescue mission. His orders: to bring home the brave women of the Special Operation Executive caught behind enemy lines in the clutches of the fleeing German army.But it soon appears that the mission is doomed to failure, and so the women’s only hope lies in their own guile and determination, which may just keep them alive long enough for the men of 30th Commando, led by the battle-hardened Sergeant Slaughter, to reach them. With time running out and their options rapidly decreasing, the women and their rescuers make for Swinemunde on the shores of the Baltic in the hope of safe passage on one of few remaining seafaring transports. But as a Russian sub enters the Baltic with orders to bring down the largest of these vessels, the situation looks decidedly grim.Intense World War Two fiction writer Duncan Harding is a pseudonym of the late writer and WW2 historian Charles Whiting, who has sold over three million books worldwide. Whiting also famously writes under the name Leo Kessler, whose SS Wotan series is a stalwart of Second World War fiction.

Geographies of Developing Areas: The Global South in a Changing World
Geographies of Developing Areas is a thought provoking and accessible introductory text, presenting a fresh view of the Global South that challenges students' pre-conceptions and promotes lively debate. Rather than presenting the Global South as a set of problems, from rapid urbanization to poverty, this book focuses on the diversity of life in the South, and looks at the role the South plays in shaping and responding to current global change. The core contents of the book integrate 'traditional' concerns of development geographers, such as economic development and social inequality, with aspects of the global South that are usually given less attention, such as cultural identity and political conflict. This edition has been fully updated to reflect recent changes in the field and highlight issues of security, risk and violence; environmental sustainability and climate change; and the impact of ICT on patterns of North-South and South-South exchange. It also challenges students to think about how space is important in both the directions and the outcomes of change in the Global South, emphasizing the inherently spatial nature of political, economic and socio-cultural processes. Students are introduced to the Global South via contemporary debates in development and current research in cultural, economic and political geographies of developing areas. The textbook consider how images of the so-called 'Third World' are powerful, but problematic. It explores the economic, political and cultural processes shaping the South at the global scale and the impact that these have on people's lives and identities. Finally, the text considers the possibilities and limitations of different development strategies.The main arguments of the book are richly illustrated through case study material drawn from across the Global South as well as full colour figures and photos. Students are supported throughout with clear examples, explanations of key terms, ideas and debates, and introductions to the wider literature and relevant websites in the field. The pedagogical features of the book have been further developed through discussion questions and activities that provide focused tasks for students' research, including investigation based around the book's case studies, and in-depth exploration of debates and concepts it introduces.
