The Brontë sisters : selected poems of Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë by Stevie Davies( Book )

20 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the Brontës have long fascinated readers of fiction and biography, their poetry was all too little known until this pioneering selection by Stevie Davies, the novelist and critic. Charlotte (1816-1855) is certainly a competent poet, and Anne (1820-1849) developed a distinctive voice, while Emily (1818-1848) is one of the great women poets in English. Read together with their novels, the poems movingly elucidate the ideas around which the narratives revolve. And they surprise us out of our conventional notions of the sisters' personalities: Emily's rebelliousness, for example, is counterbalanced here by great tenderness. This selection of over seventy poems gives an idea of the variety of thought and feeling within each author's work, and of the way in which the poems of these three remarkable writers parallel and reflect each other
Kith & kin by Stevie Davies( Book )

13 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mara and Frankie are cousins and best friends, growing up in the stifling atmosphere of Swansea in the Fifties, within the tight knot of an extended family that thrives on gossip, petty feuds and innuendo." "Mara is a difficult but loved child whilst Frankie is rebellious, fired by an intense and demanding emotional hunger. The two develop a strange mutual dependence in which love, jealousy, hate and rivalry intermingle. They come of age in the heady atmosphere of the Sixties - a decade in which notions of family and kinship are being overturned in favour of 'free love', sexual experimentation and social revolution. But that dream turns sour and a bitter battle of wills results." "Years later, Mara sees a nostalgic film clip of Frankie in her youth and this serves as a springboard to her past, forcing her to confront unanswered questions about Frankie's life and death."--BOOK JACKET

The Eyrie by Stevie Davies( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nobody at The Eyrie is quite like Red Dora - in her eighties, she's a Scots ex-Communist, ex-Trotskyite who fought in the Spanish Civil War. With her fiery brand of radical anticapitalism, she conjures plans of political sabotage and computer hacking. She rails at a society that seems to have forgotten its political roots and a government that doesn't care. But beneath her rage lies a more intimate disappointment, a tragic death she has yet to come to terms with."

Impassioned clay by Stevie Davies( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Olivia starts digging the grave of her Quaker mother in the garden of Pinfold Farm in Cheshire, where generations before her have been born, married and died, she comes face to face with a harrowing past. Buried beneath the thick layers of sour Cheshire clay, Olivia discovers a skeleton. It is crushed, the neckbone broken and the bones, fragile and decayed. But one thing remains completely intact - a scold's bridle." "Delving back into the turbulent history of the English Civil War, Impassioned Clay is a story of awakenings. It explores the blurring of lines between history and imagination; religious fervour and sexual desire; unorthodox passion and political aspiration; and exhumes the past from the present."--BOOK JACKET
William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night by Stevie Davies( Book )

Into Suez by Stevie Davies( Book )

Set in the postwar period when Britain, the bankrupt victor of the Second World War, attempted to assert itself as an Imperial power in a world wholly altered. Joe's tragedy is that of an ordinary working man of his generation: he's a lovely, humorous, emotional man in whom the common ration of racism and misogyny becomes a painful sickness. Ailsa, intelligent, curious and craving to explore the realities of the Egypt she enters, meets on the voyage out Mona, a Palestinian woman who excites in her yearning for a world beyond her horizons. When Joe's closest friend is murdered by Egyptian terrorists, their relationship spirals towards tragedy. Through it all, love remains. Looking back in old age, their daughter Nia follows in their wake to sail the Suez Canal with the aged Mona. Nia has been told her father was a war hero: now she will face a more painful truth
