Ben hails from old money; Martin grew up poor but is slowly carving out a successful career as an art critic. They've been inseparable since childhood. When Ben throws a lavish 40th birthday party as his new palatial country home, Martin and Lucy attend, mixing with the very upper echelons of London society. The next morning Martin is in a police station being interviewed about the events of last night. What exactly happened at the party?

Beatrice Kizza, a woman in flight from a homeland that condemned her for daring to love, flees to London. There, she shields her sorrow from the indifference of her adopted city, and navigates a night-time world of shift-work and bedsits. Howard Pink is a self-made millionaire who has risen from Petticoat Lane to the mansions of Kensington on a tide of determination and bluster. Yet self-doubt still snaps at his heels and his life is shadowed by the terrible loss that has shaken him to his foundations. Carol Hetherington, recently widowed, is living the quiet life in Wandsworth with her cat and The Jeremy Kyle Show for company. As she tries to come to terms with the absence her husband has left on the other side of the bed, she frets over her daughter's prospects and wonders if she'll ever be happy again. Esme Reade is a young journalist learning to muck-rake and doorstep in pursuit of the elusive scoop, even as she longs to find some greater meaning and leave her imprint on the world. Four strangers, each inhabitants of the same city, where the gulf between those who have too much and those who will never have enough is impossibly vast. But when the glass that separates Howard's and Beatrice's worlds is shattered by an inexcusable act, they discover that the capital has connected them in ways they could never have imagined

But as Jake and Marisa are put through months of fertility treatments and false starts, Kate's boundary-pushing turns into an all-out obsession. Why does she seem to know everything about Marisa and Jake? In her quest to find out who Kate really is, Marisa might destroy everything she has worked so hard to create: her perfect romance, her perfect family, and her perfect self. -- Adapted from jacket

Rise : life lessons in speaking out, standing tall & leading the way by Gina Miller( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gina Miller came to prominence when she brought one of the most significant constitutional cases ever to be heard in the British Supreme Court. Gina successfully challenged the UK government's authority to trigger Article 50 - the formal notification to leave the European Union - without parliamentary approval. For standing up for what she believed was right, Miller became the target of not just racist and sexist verbal abuse, but physical threats to her and her family. One question she kept being asked was how could she keep going at the cost of so much pain and aggravation? To her the answer was obvious: she'd been doing it all her life. In Rise, Gina Miller draws on a lifetime of fighting injustice and looks at the moments that made her; the trauma, failures and successes that gave her the confidence in her voice, the ability to know how to use it and the strength not to let others diminish it, even when it came at incredible cost. To those who say one person cannot make a difference, this memoir demonstrates irrefutably how you can."--Amazon.com

Marisa and Jake are a perfect couple. And Kate, their new lodger, is the perfect roommate, and not just because her rent payments will give them the income they need to start trying for the baby of their dreams. Except, no one is truly perfect. Sure, Kate doesn't seem to care much about personal boundaries and can occasionally seem overly-familiar with Jake. But Marisa doesn't let it concern her, knowing that soon Kate will be gone, and it will just be her, Jake, and their future baby. Conceiving a baby is easier said than done, though, and Jake and Marisa's perfect relationship is put to the test through months of fertility treatments and false starts. To make matters worse, Kate's boundary-pushing turns into an all-out obsession, with Jake, with Marisa, and with their future child. Who is this woman? Why does she seem to know everything about Marisa and Jake? In her quest to find out who Kate really is, Marisa might destroy everything she's worked so hard to create, her perfect romance, her perfect family, and her perfect self
