Seeking for philosophy the same spirit and assurance conveyed by artists like Fred Astaire, Cavell presents essays exploring the meaning of grace and gesture in film and on stage, in language and in life. Critical to the renaissance in American thought Cavell hopes to provoke is the recognition of the centrality of the "ordinary" to American life.
Young and beautiful, Raeva Ray was just beginning her nursing career when she made the mistake of falling hard and fast for billionaire playboy Mika Kingsley, the power player who tested her self-control, her judgment, and her ability to forgive. But their unbreakable connection has somehow allowed her to let go of their troubled past. Rich and influential, Mika Kingsley used to think he had it all. An endless stream of money, women, and power left him sure that his life could never get better. But with Raeva now in both his heart and his bed, Mika finally has everything he could ever want or need. Which means that he also has everything to lose. The secrets were supposed to end. The lies were supposed to be uncovered. The pain was supposed to be behind them. ‘Supposed to’ is never a guarantee. What will happen After Tomorrow…?
The planet is warming up and as the ice caps melt, the great currents of the oceans shift and the Northern Hemisphere is plunged into a new ice age. One scientist has the key to turning back the clock of global warming. But as Western civilisation succumbs to blizzards and tidal waves and the population of the Northern hemisphere begins a mass exodus south, mankind's only saviour is making a lonely, terror-filled trip north. To a New York disappearing under snowdrifts hundreds of feet high. The city where his son was last heard of.
What if you woke up tomorrow and everything had changed? Money is worthless. Your friends are gone. Armed robbers roam the streets. No one is safe. Suddenly you're a refugee. After Tomorrow is an unflinchingly poignant but ultimately hopeful story from Carnegie Medal winning author Gillian Cross, exploring the struggle for survival within refugee camps.
The time is the future. The government is a corrupt and inefficient bureaucracy, mainly concerned with protecting the profits of large corporations. The Movement is a new and non-violent revolutionary group seeking to replace the political mess with a just and scientifically efficient socioeconomic system. The Movement was staffed by some of the world's greatest intellectuals and scientists; unfortunately, they were amateurs in the business of revolution. The government could call on an army of ruthless professional agents - and they had no scruples about using violence.
Jess hopes that a break in the country will give her the peace that she needs - However, on the farm, the animals are being slaughtered by a mysterious creature, and Jess feels that someone or something, is watching her.
