Cell by Robin Cook( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Wilson, M.D., a radiology resident in Los Angeles, is about to enter a profession on the brink of an enormous paradigm shift, foreshadowing a vastly different role for doctors everywhere. The smartphone is poised to take on a new role in medicine, no longer as a mere medical app but rather as a fully customizable personal physician capable of diagnosing and treating even better than the real thing. It is called iDoc. George's initial collision with this incredible innovation is devastating. He awakens one morning to find his fiancée dead in bed alongside him, not long after she participated in an iDoc beta test. Then several of his patients die after undergoing imaging procedures. All of them had been part of the same beta test. Is it possible that iDoc is being subverted by hackers and that the U.S. government is involved in a cover-up? Despite threats to both his career and his freedom, George relentlessly seeks the truth, knowing that if he's right, the consequences could be lethal. --Publisher

The last girl : my story of captivity, and my fight against the Islamic State by Nadia Murad( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this intimate memoir of survival, a former captive of the Islamic State tells her harrowing and ultimately inspiring story. Nadia Murad was born and raised in Kocho, a small village of farmers and shepherds in northern Iraq. A member of the Yazidi community, she and her brothers and sisters lived a quiet life. Nadia had dreams of becoming a history teacher or opening her own beauty salon. On August 15th, 2014, when Nadia was just twenty-one years old, this life ended. Islamic State militants massacred the people of her village, executing men who refused to convert to Islam and women too old to become sex slaves. Six of Nadia's brothers were killed, and her mother soon after, their bodies swept into mass graves. Nadia was taken to Mosul and forced, along with thousands of other Yazidi girls, into the ISIS slave trade. Nadia would be held captive by several militants and repeatedly raped and beaten. Finally, she managed a narrow escape through the streets of Mosul, finding shelter in the home of a Sunni Muslim family whose eldest son risked his life to smuggle her to safety. Today, Nadia's story--as a witness to the Islamic State's brutality, a survivor of rape, a refugee, a Yazidi--has forced the world to pay attention to the ongoing genocide in Iraq. It is a call to action, a testament to the human will to survive, and a love letter to a lost country, a fragile community, and a family torn apart by war"

She discovered that fleeting energy that is only brought about by forbidden winds. Just Between Us is a novel about learning and courage, narrated in an intimate, sensitive tone. With it, the reasons for infidelity are taken up a notch, and reveal a different outlook about femininity, eroticism, and a woman's fortitude. During a visit to her husband's coworker's house, Victoria pokes around the family residence and finds herself in the master bedroom. The owner of the home is Xavier Sanguinetti, a successful and attractive man who appears to be happily married and living with his family. In Victoria's eyes, nothing is out of order except an image of the Virgin Mary above the headboard that shakes her in a peculiar way: in her imagination, she can't stop thinking about Xavier in a sexual way. From that moment on, passion and desire are awakened in Victoria. Without giving up her world, dictated by tradition and the old values imposed on her gender, she discovers the infinite powers of a woman to feel and to love. With a simple look, her relationship with Xavier becomes real after several meetings that reveal to her an intimacy she could never have imagined
Madre in Spain : historias de una madre que sueña con depilarse las dos piernas el mismo día by Purificación García( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ser madre es muy duro (y ser padre también; aquí no se libra nadie). Te pasas el día poniendo lavadoras y planchando y al final se te pone el brazo hiperdesarrollado como a Popeye. Cuando me siento a hablar con mis amigas sobre cine o televisión, si alguna me pregunta cuál es mi programa favorito, le respondo que el de prendas delicadas. Ya no salgo por ahí porque me caigo de sueño por las esquinas. Mi fiesta de la espuma es el baño de los niños y, si me coronasen como Miss Camiseta Mojada, solo sería por la cantidad de lavadoras que pongo. Y de sexo, mejor ni hablamos: cuando tienes críos, tu concepto de pasarlo bien en bolas es ir a la piscina de un Chiquipark, y echar un polvo mañanero es preparar el biberón de la niña."--
