London, 1838. Sixteen-year-old Liza's dreams of her society debut are dashed when her parents are killed in an accident. Penniless, she accepts the position of lady's maid to young Princess Victoria and steps unwittingly into the gossipy intrigue of the servant's world below-stairs as well as the trickery above. Is it possible that her changing circumstances may offer Liza the chance to determine her own fate, find true love, and secure the throne for her future queen?<br /><br />Meticulously based on newly discovered information, this riveting novel is as rich in historical detail as <em>Catherine, Called Birdy</em>, and as sizzling with intrigue as <em>The Luxe</em>.<br /><br />Includes bonus material!<br />- Book Club Discussion Guide<br />- Sneak peek chapter from <em>Always Emily</em> by Michaela MacColl

<DIV><P>Jack London's novels and ruggedly individual life seemed to embody American hopes, frustrations, and romantic longings in the turbulent first years of the twentieth century, years infused with the wonder and excitement of great technological and historic change. The author's restless spirit, taste for a life of excitement, and probing mind led him on a series of hard-edged adventures from the Klondike to the South Seas. Out of these sometimes harrowing experiences — and his fascination with the theories of such thinkers as Darwin, Spencer, and Marx — came the inspiration for novels of adventure that would make him one of America’s most popular writers.<BR><I>The Call of the Wild</I>, considered by many London's greatest novel, is a gripping tale of a heroic dog that, thrust into the brutal life of the Alaska Gold Rush, ultimately faces a choice between living in man's world and returning to nature. Adventure and dog-story enthusiasts as well as students and devotees of American literature will find this classic work a thrilling, memorable reading experience.</DIV><P></P></P>

<h2><strong>An epic novel of war and courage set in Ancient Greece, <em>Fortress of the Sun</em> brings to life one of the most stunning campaigns of antiquity, a tale every bit the sibling of the 300 Spartans' Battle of Thermopylae or the Macedonian wars against Persia...</strong><br /></h2><p><strong></strong><br /></p><p>It's 243 B.C. and Greece is ready for a revolution.</p><p>Eighty years have passed since the death of Alexander the Great, the man who first cowed free Hellas into submission. His successors have only tightened their grip in the interim, the present king no exception. Spartan rebellions, opportunistic usurpers, foreign invaders – for five decades, King Antigonus has seen them all and crushed them all. He stands alone astride Greece; he fears no one.</p><p>Aratus of Sicyon plans to change that. Burning with a passion for freedom and hatred for the King, he takes aim at Macedon when no one else would dare; takes aim at its crown jewel in the south, the linchpin of its control, the symbol of its domination—Corinth.</p><p>Outfunded, outmanned, and outarmed, Aratus embarks on one of the most audacious campaigns in ancient history, one destined to change Greece forever.</p>

Stranded in Luntharda with his partner Lieutenant Jace Rordin, Jaevid must finally confront the demons of his own past as he uncovers the truth about a war that began before he was ever born. Armed with a new appreciation for destiny, and flanked by his trusted friends, Jaevid moves to make the final strike against an enemy that has been hiding in plain sight for far too long.

“Elephant! Elephant! Heavy! Heavy! Heavy! Elephant! Elephant! STOMP! STOMP! STOMP!” Elephant was shouting and stomping. But could he stomp a hole deep enough to reach water for the thirsty animals? Maybe…maybe not. All the animals tried until tiny Gecko Gecko takes a turn. He is small...but he is determined. And he's not going to give up! Kids will love to chant and stomp along to this Ugandan folktale.
