<p><em>“Everything that's happening to us—yes, everything—is to be regarded as a lark. See? This is my last word. This. Is. Going. To. Be. A. Lark.”</em></p><p>It’s 1919, and Jane Quested and her cousin Lucilla are pulled suddenly from school by their guardian, who sets them up in a cottage on the fringes of London and informs them (by letter, since he’s already fled) that he’s gambled away their inheritance but is leaving them the house and £500 to carry on with. Lucilla is disheartened, but Jane is certain it will be a lark.</p><p>With the help of a handsome man, a classic example of a “capable woman”, and a war veteran with a green thumb, the two unflappable young women set up a market garden, which develops into a guest house, which develops into—well, you’ll have to read and see. It’s true they have some difficulties as businesswomen, not to mention with housekeeping, but this is ultimately a tale fully living up to its title.</p><p>Forgotten for decades, despite Nesbit’s fame as a children’s author, her final novel for adults, first published in 1922, is a delight that’s ripe for rediscovery. This new edition includes an introduction by Charlotte Moore.</p><p>“An economy of phrase, and an unparalleled talent for evoking hot summer days in the English countryside.”--<em>Noel Coward</em></p>

À la requête de Simon Ford, ancien contremaître des houillères d'Aberfoyle, en Écosse, dont les gisements sont censés être épuisés depuis une dizaine d'années, l'ingénieur James Starr en reprend l'exploitation.<br /><br />L'intuition des deux hommes s'avère fondée, puisqu'un nouveau filon est découvert, permettant une reprise fructueuse de l'exploitation et entraînant la création d'une véritable « ville » minière sous la surface de la terre : Coal-City. Toutefois, divers phénomènes inexpliqués finissent par se produire et se multiplier, jusqu'à la découverte, dans une galerie de mine, de Nell, d'une jeune fille qui semble n'avoir jamais vu la lumière du jour et n'avoir aucune notion de la division du temps en jours et en heures…<br /><br />Ce livre est adapté à la lecture sur Kindle

Alert: Contains a bad boy biker with twelve years worth of fantasies to get out of his system, and his goody-two-shoes best friend who learns that her inner bad girl likes handcuffs and spankings. This book could cause a riot since there’s only one Jesse to go around.<br /><br />He’s got one shot. Better make it naughty…<br /><br />Micah’s new living arrangement with her best friend is quickly becoming unbearable. Not because Jesse isn’t a good roommate. When they’re alone, he shows her his sweet, loyal side. It’s just that he shows the rest of his parts to half the women in town. If she can’t scrape together the money for her own place soon, witnessing the aftermath of his late-night carousing is going to break her heart. Then again, if it’s going to break anyway, maybe she should just go ahead and make a move on the man she’s loved since high school. And risk his rejection a second time.<br /><br />It hasn’t been easy for Jesse to share space with the one damsel he can’t bear to see in distress. To have her within easy reach has been torture. His foster mother’s words echo in his head: a classy girl like Micah deserves more than the likes of him. But lately Micah’s been rattling his cage. If she does it one more time, she’d better be ready for the animal she awakens.<br />Unfortunately for him, Micah’s hot little hands are already wrapped around the bars…<br />

"La-ha-hoo! la-ha-hoo!"<br /><br />Far down the widening valley, and up the wild, picturesque ravine, rang<br />the strange but not unmusical call. It awoke the slumbering echoes of<br />the still place, and a hundred voices seemed to take up the cry, and<br />pass it on as from mouth to mouth. But the boy's quick ears were not to<br />be deceived by the mocking voices of the spirits of solitude, and<br />presently the call rang out again with greater clearness than before:<br /><br />"La-ha-hoo!"<br /><br />The boy stood with his head thrown back, his fair curls floating in the<br />mountain breeze, his blue eyes, clear and bright and keen as those of a<br />wild eaglet, fixed upon a craggy ridge on the opposite side of the<br />gorge, whilst his left hand was placed upon the collar of a huge<br />wolfhound who stood beside him, sniffing the wind and showing by every<br />tremulous movement his longing to be off and away, were it not for the<br />detaining hand of his young master.<br /><br />The lad was very simply dressed in a tunic of soft, well-dressed<br />leather, upon the breast of which was stamped some device which might<br />have been the badge of his house. His active limbs were encased in the<br />same strong, yielding material, and the only thing about him which<br />seemed to indicate rank or birth was a belt with a richly-chased gold<br />clasp and a poniard with a jewelled hilt.<br />

L'opera riprende la tradizione scandinava delle saghe, basate su personaggi eroici ma umani anche nelle debolezze, calandola però in un'ambientazione moderna. Viene ripreso anche lo stile stesso delle saghe, con una scrittura vocativa e commenti dell'autore su ciò che accade o sul comportamento dei personaggi.<br /><br />Dal libro, nel 1924, venne tratta una versione cinematografica diretta da Mauritz Stiller, La leggenda di Gösta Berling (Gösta Berlings saga), che aveva come protagonista Lars Hanson affiancato da una giovanissima Greta Garbo.

This story is not about myself, though, because I tell of things that I<br />have seen, my name must needs come into it now and then. The man whose<br />deeds I would not have forgotten is my foster-brother, Havelok, of whom<br />I suppose every one in England has heard. Havelok the Dane men call him<br />here, and that is how he will always be known, as I think.<br /><br />He being so well known, it is likely that some will write down his<br />doings, and, not knowing them save by hearsay, will write them wrongly<br />and in different ways, whereof will come confusion, and at last none<br />will be believed. Wherefore, as he will not set them down himself, it is<br />best that I do so. Not that I would have anyone think that the<br />penmanship is mine. Well may I handle oar, and fairly well axe and<br />sword, as is fitting for a seaman, but the pen made of goose feather is<br />beyond my rough grip in its littleness, though I may make shift to use a<br />sail-needle, for it is stiff and straightforward in its ways, and no<br />scrawling goeth therewith.<br /><br />Therefore my friend Wislac, the English priest, will be the penman,<br />having skill thereto. I would have it known that I can well trust him to<br />write even as I speak, though he has full leave to set aside all hard<br />words and unseemly, such as a sailor is apt to use unawares; and where<br />my Danish way of speaking goeth not altogether with the English, he may<br />alter the wording as he will, so long as the sense is always the same.<br />Then, also, will he read over to me what he has written, and therefore<br />all may be sure that this is indeed my true story.

Giuseppe GARIBALDI est à l’Italie ce que Bonaparte est à la France. Les surnoms ne manquent pas pour qualifier ce personnage historique connu à travers le monde entier, de l’Amérique, à la Chine et l’Angleterre, en passant par l’Afrique du Nord. Tour à tour le "marin", le "chemise rouge" ou bien encore le "Che Guevara nissart", il a marqué le XIXème siècle de son empreinte. Mais s’il y en a un qui qualifie bien ce niçois emblématique, c’est celui de "héros des deux mondes". Des monts, des villes, des rues portent son nom. S'il y a bien un personnage niçois qui est connu dans le monde entier, c'est lui, Joseph Garibaldi. Révolutionnaire, défenseur de la liberté, figure devenu mythe. Le bicentenaire da sa naissance est l'occasion de revenir sur l'homme et de le redécouvrir.<br /><br />Garibaldi est né à Nice le 4 juillet 1807 sur le port Limpia Sa mère lui apprend les rudiments du latin et de l’italien, ainsi que le glorieux passé de l’Italie romaine. Il reçoit une éducation religieuse. Par un étrange paradoxe de l'Histoire, celui qui sera, plus tard, entre autres, un des héros de l'Unité italienne est né français puisque Nice a été annexée à la France après l'invasion révolutionnaire de 1782. Mais cette nationalité de naissance ne préjugea en rien de l'universalité de l'homme. Son père venait de Chiavari, un petit port da la région de Gênes. Il était marin, patron d'une tartane. A la suite de la création du port Limpia en 1750, il s'installa à Nice, peut-être dans les années 1780 et la carrière de Joseph est alors toute tracée. Contre l'avis maternel, Il commença à naviguer à quinze ans en tant que mousse puis marin sur le bateau de son père la Santa Reparata et fait son premier voyage à Odessa. Il parcourt la Méditerranée et découvre les réalités de son temps : la guerre d'indépendance des Grecs face aux Turcs entre 1822 et 1828, les révolutions de 1830 en France et de 1831 en Belgique, Allemagne et Italie. Tous ces événements ont marqué !es consciences et permettant à une jeunesse passionnée de croire en un futur différent, respectueux des aspirations des minorités nationales, empreint de liberté, d'égalité et de démocratie. -

Il faisait encore grand jour, et Élisabeth, restée seule un moment dans la chambre démeublée, s’approcha de la fenêtre.<br />Ce côté de la maison donnait sur des jardinets carrés, étroits, séparés les uns des autres par des haies vives, crevées de larges trous béants.<br />Quelques pommiers maladifs, des buissons de groseilles épineuses et des massifs de dahlias aux couleurs éteintes peuplaient cet enclos, où s’alanguissait une pâle verdure potagère.<br />En été, sur ce maigre terrain presque abandonné, poussait un désordre de végétation, un pêle-mêle de petite salade, d’herbes folles, de touffes d’oseille, et, le long d’alignements de choux mal venus, creux, presque sans feuilles, par-ci par-là, l’œil bleu de la bourrache sauvage regardait le ciel.<br />C’était sur ce coin de jardin emprisonné de bâtisses, en face de ce lopin de terre morcelé où des chats erraient, le ventre vide, qu’Élisabelh avait grandi...
