The Japanese lover : a novel by Isabel Allende( Book )

21 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 3,420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From New York Times and internationally bestselling author Isabel Allende, an exquisitely crafted love story and multigenerational epic that sweeps from San Francisco in the present-day to Poland and the United States during the Second World War. In 1939, as Poland falls under the shadow of the Nazis, young Alma Belasco's parents send her away to live in safety with an aunt and uncle in their opulent mansion in San Francisco. There, as the rest of the world goes to war, she encounters Ichimei Fukuda, the quiet and gentle son of the family's Japanese gardener. Unnoticed by those around them, a tender love affair begins to blossom. Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the two are cruelly pulled apart as Ichimei and his family--like thousands of other Japanese Americans--are declared enemies and forcibly relocated to internment camps run by the United States government. Throughout their lifetimes, Alma and Ichimei reunite again and again, but theirs is a love that they are forever forced to hide from the world. Decades later, Alma is nearing the end of her long and eventful life. Irina Bazili, a care worker struggling to come to terms with her own troubled past, meets the elderly woman and her grandson, Seth, at San Francisco's charmingly eccentric Lark House nursing home. As Irina and Seth forge a friendship, they become intrigued by a series of mysterious gifts and letters sent to Alma, eventually learning about Ichimei and this extraordinary secret passion that has endured for nearly seventy years. Sweeping through time and spanning generations and continents, The Japanese Lover explores questions of identity, abandonment, redemption, and the unknowable impact of fate on our lives. Written with the same attention to historical detail and keen understanding of her characters that Isabel Allende has been known for since her landmark first novel The House of the Spirits, The Japanese Lover is a profoundly moving tribute to the constancy of the human heart in a world of unceasing change"--
In the midst of winter : a novel by Isabel Allende( Book )

13 editions published between 17 and 2017 in English and held by 2,660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the middle of a snowstorm in Brooklyn, 60-year-old human rights scholar Richard Bowmaster hits the car of Evelyn Ortega, a young, undocumented immigrant from Guatemala. What at first seems just a small inconvenience takes a far more serious turn when Evelyn turns up at the professor's house seeking help. At a loss, the professor asks his tenant Lucia Maraz, a 62-year-old lecturer from Chile, for her advice. These three very different people are brought together in a story that moves from present-day Brooklyn to Guatemala in the recent past to 1970s Chile and Brazil, sparking the beginning of a long overdue love story between Richard and Lucia
The Devil and Miss Prym : a novel of temptation by Paulo Coelho( Book )

35 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A community devoured by greed, cowardice and fear. A man persecuted by the ghosts of his painful past. A young woman searching for happiness. In one eventful week, each of them will face questions of life, death and power, and each of them will have to choose their own path. Will they choose good or evil? Coelho dramatizes the struggle with every soul between light and darkness, and its relevance to our everyday struggles: to dare to follow our dreams, to have the courage to be different and to master the fear that prevents us from truly living.--From publisher description
Journey to Portugal : in pursuit of Portugal's history and culture by José Saramago( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,049 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Jose Saramago decided some twenty years ago to write a book about Portugal, his only desire was that it be unlike any other book on the subject, and in this he certainly has succeeded. Recording the events and observations of a journey across the length and breadth of the country he loves dearly, Saramago brings Portugal to life as only a writer of his brilliance can. Forfeiting sources of information such as tourist guides and road maps, he scours the country with the eyes and ears of an observer fascinated by the ancient myths and history of his people. Whether an inaccessible medieval fortress set on a cliff, a wayside chapel thick with cobwebs, or a grand mansion in the city, the extraordinary places of this land come alive with kings, warriors, painters, explorers, writers, saints, and sinners. Always meticulously attentive to those elements of ancient Portugal that persist today, Saramago examines the country in its current period of rapid transition and growth

150 years of photo journalism = 150 Jahre Fotojournalismus by Hulton Deutsch Collection( Book )

45 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in 5 languages and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Hulton Deutsch Collection is home to the major British newspaper archives and press collections of the twentieth century. This second volume draws on that unique and extensive library to provide a pictorial history of our century and our times, which bears out the concept that a photograph is worth a thousand words. Here it becomes possible to trace the rise of this immensely important medium through the major world events of the twentieth century; from the spread of Communisim to the rise of Fascism; through the wars and revolutions of Europe and Asia and across the continuum of campaigns for social change; through the vast sweep of both high art and popular culture and the massive developments in scientific and medical technology that made possible humanity's ascent to the moon, our descent in to nuclear weaponry -- and the near eradication of smallpox, leprosy and polio on our planet. Above all this is the story of everyman and everywoman. We can learn how ordinary people lived through these monumental changes : how they responded to the disaster of the first Zeppelin air crash or the delights of television in their front room; what they made of package holidays in the 1950s -- and what the natives made of their strange invaders. Life "upstairs and downstairs" across the social divides; the fashion and the theatrical beauties of the day: London under the Blitz -- these are just a few of the topics chosen by photographers famous or unknown whose images have become icons of their time. Their pictures provide and enlivening and enlightening history not only of our century but of the medium that recorded it." -- Inside front cover
