Children of the age by Knut Hamsun( Book )

7 editions published in 1924 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hamsun described Children of the Age as "a novel about the war between the aristocrat and the peasant." The Encyclopedia of the Novel (2014) called it "a historically based - and utterly scathing - critique of modernity." And the Hamsun Centre (Hamsunsenteret) website wrote: "In Children of the Age a family's rise and fall are used to describe the decline and fall of a whole epoch. Thematically the novel has similarities to Thomas Mann's Buddenbrooks (1901), with Hamsun's humour being the stylistic difference between the two." Briefly, the novel is the story of Lieutenant Willatz Holmsen, patriarch of Segelfoss, a small semi-feudal estate in the north of Norway. When a rich self-made industrialist returns from years abroad, Holmsen finds his authority challenged and his finances jeopardized. At the same time, the novel chronicles the breakdown of his family life with his wife Adelheid and son Willatz IV. The novel and its sequel, Segelfoss Town (1915), are described in Knut Hamsun: The Dark Side of Literary Brilliance (2009) as "much more than dry social analysis; indeed, they investigate, in rich novelistic form, the propagation and survival of a family."

The billionaire's obsession : the complete collection by J. S Scott( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Down on her luck, nursing student and full-time waitress Kara Foster gets a massive blow to her already desperate financial situation that will surely find her living on the streets. Needing nothing less than a miracle to save her, Kara gets rescue from an unknown, unlikely and overwhelming source. Billionaire Simon Hudson makes her an offer that is impossible to refuse, but terrifying to accept from a man that she's never met. Will the handsome, alpha billionaire really be a solution to her problems, or will he end up being a major complication and a danger to her emotional sanity? Reclusive billionaire Simon Hudson would rather be behind a computer creating computer games than rubbing elbows with the elite and he knows exactly what he wants ... until he meets Kara Foster. Something about Kara touches Simon in ways he's never experienced and definitely doesn't like. For over a year, Simon watches over Kara, but stubbornly refuses to admit his desire to possess her, not even to himself. But when she ends up in a situation that could very well be her destruction, Simon steps up to help her, not realizing that in saving Kara, he might very well be salvaging his own soul

Kristin Lavransdatter : the Wreath by Sigrid Undset( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in 14th century Norway, the first volume of Undset's medieval trilogy begins the life story of Kristin Lavransdatter. Starting with Kristin's childhood and continuing through her romance with Erlend, a dangerously charming and impetuous man, Undset recreates the historical backdrop in vivid detail, immersing readers in the day to day life, social conventions and political undercurrents of the period. But the story she tells is a modern one, brought to life with clarity and lyrical beauty in a remarkable translation."--Publisher's description
