For twenty years, Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland's majestic mist-shrouded hills. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth: about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones ... about a love that transcends the boundaries of time ... and about James Fraser, a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his. Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful copper-haired daughter, Brianna, as Claire's spellbinding journey of self-discovery continues in the intrigue-ridden Paris court of Charles Stuart in a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves

"Leningrad 1941: the white nights of summer illuminate a city of fallen grandeur whose beautiful palaces and stately avenues speak of a different age, when Leningrad was known as St Petersburg. Two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha, share the same bed, living in one room with their brother and parents. It is a hard, impoverished life, yet the Metanovs know many who are not as fortunate as they. The family routine is shattered on 22 June 1941 when Hitler invades Russia. For the Metanovs, for Leningrad and for Tatiana, life will never be the same again. On the fateful day, Tatiana meets a brash young officer named Alexander. Tatiana and her family suffer as Hitler's army advances on Leningrad, and the Russian winter closes in. With bombs falling and the city under siege, Tatiana and Alexander are drawn to each other in an impossible love. It is a love that could tear Tatiana's family apart, a love that carries a secret that could mean death for anyone who hears it. Confronted on the one hand by Hitler's unstoppable war machine, and on the other by a Soviet system determined to crush the human spirit, Tatiana and Alexander are pitted against the very tide of history, at a turning point in the century that made the modern world. Mesmerizing from the very first page to the final, breathtaking end, The Bronze Horseman brings alive the story of two indomitable, heroic spirits and their great love that triumphs over the devastation of a country at war."--Taken from author's website

Wzgórze psów by Jakub Żulczyk( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in Polish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cold, dark Warmia-Masurian province. Against the background of the well-constructed dark thriller: surprising, disturbing, pulling from the first page. But it's just the simplest reading of a novel by Żulczyk. The mysterious disappearances of people, the gruesome discoveries associated with their discovery, the family drama of the main character is a pretext for a masterly portrayed local community and entangled in the local family. Żulczyk shows how fathers destroy their sons, husbands - wives, friends - friends. It deals with the memory of the injustice and the selectivity of this memory. The Province of Poland is a place where the metaphysical truth about the "Polish fate" is visible and Warsaw is a place where a visiting province can win or lose but can not live peacefully. Can the punishment for evil be another evil? Where is the border in justice? As usual, Żulczyka is interested in what lies beneath the surface." -- rough translation of the dust jacket

When Jordie Bennet and Shaw Kinnard lock eyes across a disreputable backwater bar, something definitely sparks. Shaw gives off a dangerous vibe that makes men wary and inspires women to sit up and take notice. None feel that undercurrent more strongly than savvy businesswoman Jordie, who doesn't belong in a seedy dive on the banks of a bayou. But here she is ... and Shaw Kinnard is here to kill her. As Shaw and his partner take aim, Jordie is certain her time has come. But Shaw has other plans and abducts Jordie, hoping to get his hands on the $30 million her brother has stolen and, presumably, hidden. However, Shaw is not the only one looking for the fortune. Her brother's ruthless boss and the FBI are after it as well. Now on the run from the feds and a notorious criminal, Jordie and Shaw must rely on their wits -- and each other -- to stay alive. Miles away from civilization and surrounded by swampland, the two play each other against their common enemies. Jordie's only chance of survival is to outwit Shaw, but it soon becomes clear to Shaw that Jordie isn't entirely trustworthy, either. Was she in on her brother's scam, or is she an innocent pawn in a deadly vendetta? And just how valuable is her life to Shaw, her remorseless and manipulative captor? Burning for answers -- and for each other -- this unlikely pair ultimately make a desperate move that could be their last

The wolf of Wall Street by Jordan Belfort( Book )

Belfort, who founded one of the first and largest chop shop brokerage firms in 1987, was banned from the securities business for life by 1994, and later went to jail for fraud and money-laundering, delivers a memoir that reads like fiction. It covers his decade of success with straightforward accounts of how he worked with managers of obscure companies to acquire large amounts of stock with minimal public disclosure, then pumped up the price and sold it, so he and the insiders made large profits while public investors usually lost. Profits were laundered through purchase of legitimate businesses and cash deposits in Swiss banks

Federico en su balcón by Carlos Fuentes( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in Polish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On a hot, insomniac night at the Hotel Metropol, the novelist Carlos Fuentes steps onto his balcony only to find another man on the balcony next door. The other man asks for news of the social strife turning into revolution in the unnamed city below them. He reveals himself as the nineteenth-century philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, permitted to revisit earth once a year for twenty-four hours in an enactment of his theory of eternal return. With tenderness and gallows humor, the novelist and the philosopher tell the story of the beginning of the revolution, its triumph, fanaticism, terror, and eventual unraveling. Nietzsche on His Balcony is a story of love, commitment, passion, betrayal, and hope."--Page 4 of cover
