This story takes place between 1901 and 1921. It is set in a quiet village in the Welsh Marches where two old men, The Reverend ApIvor, and Old Eli, disagree over a moral issue that ends their long friendship. Each does so willingly to conceal the young people in their keeping to protect them and their secrets, but their wellintentioned actions have serious repercussions for the future. Years later, upon the death of Old Eli, a young woman, Lily, discovers her true identity and is suddenly thrust into a world of prejudice, anger, and revenge for the past. At odds with her affluent, middle class upbringing is the revelation that her mother, Mahalia, was raised a Romani. Within days Lily is abducted, and narrowly escapes with her life. Fleeing, she finds help and friendship amongst the people she fears. She returns home determined to discover her true origins and locate her real father. When the Reverend ApIvor learns of his old friend's involvement with Mahalia and Lily, he wishes to make amends concerning his actions long ago. In Australia, Lily's real father, using the name Harry Jenkins, learns of Lily's existence and determines to meet her. He must convince his daughter that he did not desert her mother willingly all those years ago. He returns to England seeking redemption and hoping to be reunited with Mahalia. Unbeknown to Lily, her mother is dying of tuberculosis, a common cause of death amongst the Romani during that period. Harry and Lily meet after Mahalia's funeral, but are not destined for happiness immediately. Someone else is out for revenge, someone closer to home who wants payback for feeling abandoned and betrayed by him all those years ago. When Harry changed his name he left England by selling his identity illegally. Now, through malice, the criminals who bought his authentic papers have been alerted to his presence. They want to remove all proof of that original transaction. Harry must return to Australia to escape detection. Now it is Lily who must protect her father and keep his departure secret. They have nothing left but hope

Selected papers in Greek and Near Eastern History by David M Lewis( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David M. Lewis (1928-1994) was one of the foremost historians of the ancient world, and was uniquely expert in both Greek and Near Eastern history. His name appears on the spine of numerous important books, but much of his most original and influential work was published in article form. The papers selected for this 1997 volume illustrate the range and quality of his work on Greek and Near Eastern history and his particular expertise in dealing with inscriptions, ostraka, and coins. Professor Lewis began considering the choice of papers for inclusion before his death and they have been prepared for publication by Professor P. J. Rhodes. A complete bibliography of the author's published works concludes the volume

Volume VI of the new edition of The Cambridge Ancient History begins with Sparta attempting to consolidate its leadership of mainland Greece and ends with the death of Alexander the Great after he had conquered the Persian Empire and marched far into India. It is correspondingly wide-ranging in its treatment of the politics and economy, not only of old Greece, but of the Near East and the western Mediterranean. The century also saw the continued development of Classical Greek art and the moulding of Greek prose as an uniquely flexible means of expression. The formation of the great philosophical schools assured to Athens in her political decline a long future as a cultural centre, and established patterns of thought which dominated western civilization for two thousand years

The fifth century B.C. by John Boardman( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fifth century B.C. was not only the first Classic age of European civilization. It was the first and last period before the Romans in which great political and military power was located in the same place as cultural importance. This volume, therefore, is more narrowly focused geographically than its predecessors and successors, and hardly strays beyond Greece. Athens is at the centre of the picture, both politically and culturally, but events and achievements elsewhere are assessed as carefully as the nature of our sources allows." "Two series of narrative chapters, one on the growth of the Athenian Empire and the development of Athenian democracy, the other on the Peloponnesian War which brought them down, are divided by a series of studies in which the artistic and literary achievements of the fifth century are described." "This new edition has been completely replanned and rewritten in order to reflect the advances in scholarship and changes in perspective which have been taking place in the sixty years since the publication of its predecessor. Book jacket."--Jacket

Persia, Greece and the Western Mediterranean, c. 525 to 479 B.C. by John Boardman( Book )

3 editions published between 1988 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The years covered by this volume saw events and developments of major significance in the Mediterranean world. The first section of the book examines the Persian empire, the regions it comprised and its expansion during the reigns of Cyrus, Darius and Xerxes. In Greece, Sparta was attending maturity as the leader of a military coalition and Athens passed through a period of enlightened tyranny to a moderate democracy of dynamic energy and clear-sighted intelligence. Given the contrast between Greek ideas and Persian absolutism a clash between Greece and Persia became inevitable, and important chapters deal with the revolt of the Ionian Greeks against the Persians, and the two Persian invasions of Greece including the epic battles of Marathon, Thermopylae and Salamis. The third part of the volume turns to the Western Mediterranean. Italy now becomes a significant factor in the history of the area and this section covers the Italic peoples and their languages from the Bronze to the Iron age, and examines the Etruscans and their culture. Sicily is the subject of the final chapter. There the Greek city-states under Gelon of Syracuse and Theron ruler of Acragas repelled a Carthaginian onslaught at the battle of Himera. This new edition has been completely replanned and rewritten in order to reflect the advances in scholarship and changes in perspective which have been taking place in the sixty years since the publication of its predecessor
