Mad About You
Jusqu’où iriez-vous par amour ? Une malédiction. Comment expliquer autrement les coups du destin qui s’abattent inexorablement sur elle ? Pourtant, Mina doit continuer à avancer, encore et toujours, malgré la tristesse, malgré la souffrance. Et dans les ténèbres de sa solitude apparaît bientôt une lumière, un espoir. Car Louis est de retour ; informé par la presse du drame qui a frappé Mina, il lui offre son amitié et son soutien. Mais peuvent-ils vraiment n’être que des amis après tout ce qu’ils ont vécu ? A propos de l'auteur : Après avoir travaillé pendant quinze ans dans la finance, Iris Hellen a souhaité explorer sa part de créativité mais aussi profiter davantage de ses deux enfants en se réorientant dans la création de bijoux. Avec la trilogie « Mad About You », elle raconte une histoire d’amour d’aujourd’hui qu’elle s’amuse à situer dans les milieux qu’elle a côtoyés, ceux des grandes écoles, de la haute finance ainsi que de l’art contemporain.
The Loom of Language
Here is an informative introduction to language: its origins in the past, its growth through history, and its present use for communication between peoples. It is at the same time a history of language, a guide to foreign tongues, and a method for learning them. It shows, through basic vocabularies, family resemblances of languages -- Teutonic, Romance, Greek -- helpful tricks of translation, key combinations of roots and phonetic patterns. It presents by common-sense methods the most helpful approach to the mastery of many languages; it condenses vocabulary to a minimum of essential words; it simplifies grammar in an entirely new way; and it teaches a language as it is actually used in everyday life.

Guernsey Folk Lore
Of late years the ancient superstitions of the people, their legendary tales, their proverbial sayings, and, in fine, all that is designated by the comprehensive term of "Folk-Lore,” have attracted much and deserved attention. Puerile as are many of these subjects, they become interesting when a comparison is instituted amongst them as they exist in various countries. It is then seen how wide is their spread—how, for example, the same incident in a fairy tale, modified according to the manners and customs of the people by whom it is related, extends from the remotest east to the westernmost confines of Europe, and is even found occasionally to re-appear among the wild tribes of the American Continent, and the isolated inhabitants of Polynesia. The ethnologist may find in this an argument for the common origin of all nations, and their gradual spread from one central point,—the philosopher and psychologist may speculate on the wonderful construction of the human mind, and, throwing aside the idea of the unity of the race, may attribute the similarities of tradition to an innate set of ideas, which find their expression in certain definite forms,—while the historian and antiquary may sometimes discover in these popular traditions, a confirmation or explanation of some doubtful point. Lastly, he whose sole object is amusement, and whose taste is not entirely vitiated by the exaggerated and exciting fiction of modern times, will turn with pleasure to the simple tales which have amused his childhood, and which are ever fresh and ever new. Much of this ancient lore has already perished, and much is every day disappearing before the influence of the printing press, and the consequent extension of education.
Fighting for redemption . . . I've lived most of my life in darkness, beneath the shadows of secrets and addictions. The last thing I ever wanted to do was hurt the only girl I'd ever loved—the one who brought me into the light. In my entire life I'd made one promise—a promise I'd intended to keep. I've broken that promise and now I have to live with the fallout. Dixie Lark hates me, and I have to tell her that I love her. I also have to tell her a truth that might destroy us forever. Can she love me, even if she can't forgive me? Learning to move on . . . Gavin Garrison broke his promise to my brother and he broke my heart in the process.I may never love anyone the way I've loved him, but at least I won't spend my life wondering "what if." We had our one night and he walked away. I'm beginning to move on, but my brother's wedding and a battle of the bands are about to throw us together again. Our band is getting a second chance, but I don't know if I can give him one. How do you hand your heart back to the person who set it on fire once already?
