De Gandhi-vrouwen : de bewogen levens van Sonia en Indira Gandhi by Javier Moro( Book )

In the year 1965, Sonia Maino, a 19-year-old Italian student met a young Indian boy, Rajiv Gandhi, while they were both studying in Cambridge. She was born into a modest family in suburban Turin, where her father was a strict man who kept a close eye on his three daughters. Much to his chagrin, his painfully-shy middle daughter, of whom he was especially protective, fell in love with a man belonging the most powerful family in India. This marked the beginning of a story unlike any other - of a carefree Italian girl who was compelled to take on the murky world of rajneeti. With information sourced from close friends and colleagues, this book examines how Sonias courage, honesty and dedication have made her a leader in the eyes of one-sixth of humanity. From her idyllic childhood to her passionate love affair and from her days as a docile daughter-in-law to her current status of being the only Indian politician to have refused prime ministership
Mi pecado by Javier Moro( Book )

"Javier Moro recrea en Mi pecado una historia que sucedió realmente. Su protagonista es la actriz española Conchita Montenegro quien, en 1930 con apenas 19 años, desembarcó en Hollywood. Gracias a su belleza, inteligencia, personalidad y tesón, la joven promesa se hizo un hueco entre las principales estrellas del momento. Su extraordinaria mirada cautivó a Leslie Howard, uno de los actores más célebres de la época, un hombre casado que le doblaba la edad. Los amantes vivieron su idilio entre fiestas de ensueño y estrenos triunfales, paseos a caballo y vuelos en avioneta por la costa de California, entre la pasión y el engaño. Trece años más tarde, su historia de amor tuvo un desenlace inesperado cuando los dos se reencontraron en Madrid y, sin saberlo, influyeron en el curso de la Segunda Guerra Mundial."--Back cover

Los acompana Isabel Zendal, encargada de cuidarlos. Los heroes de esta descabellada expedicion, dirigida por el medico Francisco Xavier Balmis y su ayudante Josep Salvany, sobreviviran a temporales y naufragios, se enfrentaran a la oposicion del clero, a la corrupcion de los oficiales y a la codicia de quienes buscan lucrar a costa de los desamparados. Si al final esta aventura se convirtio en la mayor proeza humanitaria de la Historia, se debio no solo al coraje de aquellos ninos que se abocaron a salvar las vidas de muchisima gente, sino tambien al arrojo de Balmis y Salvany, hombres sin miedo que se disputaron el amor de la unica mujer a bordo."--Back cover

Le 30 novembre 1803, un bateau quitte le port de La Corogne sous mille acclamations et applaudissements. À bord, une vingtaine d'orphelins, des enfants de tous âges, qui partent avec la plus noble des missions : porter le vaccin contre la variole, à peine découvert, de l'autre côté de l'océan, en Amérique. Les accompagne la douce et maternelle Isabel Zendal, chargée de prendre soin d'eux. Les héros de cette folle expédition, dirigée par l'intransigeant médecin Francisco Javier Balmis et son généreux assistant Josep Salvany, devront affronter tempêtes et naufrages, et se heurteront à l'opposition du clergé, à la corruption des élus et à la cupidité de ceux qui cherchent à s'enrichir aux dépens des plus démunis. Aujourd'hui reconnue comme l'une des plus grandes prouesses humaines de l'Histoire, cette aventure a été portée par le courage de ces enfants, sur qui reposait la vie de tant de gens, mais aussi par l'audace de deux hommes que tout opposait, si ce n'est leur amour pour la seule femme à bord."
