The vicar's passion by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This early Balzac novel, which has never before been translated into English, was written under the pseudonym of Horace de Saint-Aubain. Balzac wrote several of his early works under pen names, but this work-with its controversial subjects of incest and rape-certainly seems to have justified Balzac's hidden identity. The novel begins with a brilliant comedic scene in which the local bourgeoisie wonders about its new vicar, a dashingly handsome young man with a dark, brooding personality. Ultimately, they begin to uncover his "terrible" past, which includes a passionate love for his sister MC)lanie (who turns out not be his sibling) and a friendship with the local Marquise, who herself is attracted to the young man-until she discovers that he is her son! At times comic, always adventurous and erotic, and brilliantly satiric, this is an important rediscovered work in the career of one of the greatest authors of world literature

The Plot : a Kentucky Civil War Novel by Ed Ford( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

U.S. Marshal Clay McDowell believes that indicted Lincoln assassination conspirator Mary Surratt is innocent. He reasons that the evidence against her is circumstantial and there s no solid proof that she was among those plotting to kill President Abraham Lincoln. And, even if she were to be found guilty, America would never hang a woman. McDowell s superior disagrees. Someone s really going to pay, he maintains. Who better than Mary Surratt? Hang her and you really underscore the seriousness of the crime. The Plot, concerns a Kentucky lawman s involvement in combatting a Confederate plan to kidnap President Lincoln or members of his family as a means of ending the Civil War. That effort finally leads to the President s assassination as McDowell, federal lawman for the Eastern District of Kentucky, joins with U.S. Marshals from Virginia, Maryland and Washington City in an attempt to derail the clandestined activity. McDowell deals with spies, a counterfeiting ring, and, finally, the participants in Lincoln s assassination in this fast-paced historical fiction novel. Along the way, McDowell falls in love with an actress he has recruited to spy on John Wilkes Booth and his compatriots. The Marshal is involved in a number of armed conflicts with the conspirators and their associates and is a witness at the concluding trials as four, including Mary Surratt, are executed. There s a déjà vu twist to the surprising ending, adding another dimension to an event that changed the nation
