"In 1909, sixteen-year-old Nell Golightly is a housemaid at a popular tea garden near Cambridge University, and Rupert Brooke, a new tenant, is already causing a stir with his boyish good looks and habit of swimming naked in nearby Byron's Pool. Despite her good sense, Nell seems to be falling under the radical young poet's spell, even though Brooke apparently adores no one but himself. Could he ever love a housemaid? Is he, in fact, capable of love at all?" --Cover, p. 4
Lucky bunny : a novel by Jill Dawson ( Book )
17 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Crime's a man's business. So they say. Who was that small figure then, slender enough to trot along the moonlit track, swift and low, virtually invisible? Who was it that covered the green signal with a glove to stop the train, while the two others took care of the driver and his mate? Could it have been one Queenie Dove, survivor of the Depression and the Blitz, not to mention any number of scrapes with the law?' Queenie Dove is a self-proclaimed genius when it comes to thieving and escape. Daring, clever and sexy, she ducked and dived through the streets of London from the East End through Soho to Mayfair, graduating from childhood shop-lifting to more glamorous crimes in the post-war decades. So was she wicked through and through, or more sinned against than sinning? Here she tells a vivacious tale of trickery and adventure, but one with more pain and heartbreak than its heroine cares to admit. Yes, luck often favoured her, but that is only part of the story
Watch me disappear by Jill Dawson ( Book )

Does the past yield its secrets if we search hard enough? And where is the line between ordinary lust and something altogether murkier? A marine biologist specialising in seahorses, Tina is returning for her brother's wedding to the Fenland village where she grew up. A moment of panic about her ten-year-old daughter triggers a vision of her best friend, Mandy Baker, who went missing without trace at the same age three decades ago. And the more Tina replays events and relives her tempestuous upbringing, the more she believes she knows what happened to Mandy - and who was responsible. Jill Dawson's affecting novel is an incisive and disturbing exploration of desire and childhood

Aristotle ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this program, the far-reaching philosophical ideas of Plato's star pupil are examined by noted Brown University professor Martha Nussbaum. Aristotle overcomes Plato's dualism of the intelligible and sensible worlds with his principle of the inseparable nature of eternal matter and form. The principles of potentiality and actuality are examined along with Aristotle's theory of the four causes - material, formal, efficient, and final - which account for changes in all things. These theories of constancy and change are credited with the progress of scientific inquiry over the ages."
