Doris Wolters liest: Elizabeth von Arnim "Elizabeth und ihr Garten" by Elizabeth Von Arnim( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Der Gärtner ist seit einem Jahr hier und hat mir regelmäßig gekündigt, bis jetzt ist er aber zum Bleiben bewegt worden. Ich glaube nicht, daß er viel vom Gärtnern versteht, zumindest aber kann er graben und gießen." Also muß Elizabeth selbst Hand anlegen und den verwilderten Garten auf dem Landgut ihres Mannes in Schuß bringen. Der Zauber der Natur wird für sie zum Lebenselixier. Mit spitzer Feder und britischem Humor beschreibt die junge Frau alle Eindringlinge in ihr Idyll: den "Grimmigen" (ihren Mann), eine "beste" Freundin mit ihren "guten" Ratschlägen und eine Engländerin, die offenbar gar nichts nach Hause zieht

"Nella Larsens Roman "Seitenwechsel" ist das Gegenstück zu Scott Fitzgeralds "Der grosse Gatsby"." Irene Redfield flieht vor der Hitze eines heissen Sommertages ins Dachrestaurant des Drayton Hotels in Chicago. Sie traut ihren Augen kaum, als sie hier ihre Freundin aus Kindertagen wiedertrifft. Clare Kendry ist nach dem frühen Tod ihres Vaters bei weissen Verwandten aufgewachsen und der Kontakt zwischen den Freundinnen abgerissen. Zwei Jahre später zieht Clare nach New York und meldet sich bei Irene, die in Harlem lebt, während Clare in der Welt der Weissen zu Hause ist. Clare ist mit einem Rassisten verheiratet, der nicht auch nur entfernt von ihrer schwarzen Herkunft ahnt. Zudem beunruhigt Irene mehr und mehr, dass Clare eine magische Wirkung auf ihren eigenen Ehemann zu haben scheint. Clare, die Wanderin zwischen den Welten, liebt die Gefahr und das Spiel mit dem Feuer - und droht ständig, sich zu verbrennen. NELLA LARSEN, am 13. April 1891 in Chicago, Illinois, als Nellie Walker geboren.

One day, Lena does not show up for school. She has disappeared from Vaclav and his family's lives as if by a cruel magic trick.
