<b><i>Insightful, Revealing and Shocking! </i></b><br /><b><i>A glimpse of what it was truly like to live and love across the colour bar  under the repressive regime of Apartheid.</i></b><br /><br /> In 1982, Fran Walker was born in California and given up for adoption. Twenty years later, she is on a quest to find her biological parents and solve questions that have plagued her since childhood. Four women are the storytellers and each narrates her perspective of events that began in 1980, when two students fell in love in South Africa. In addition to Fran, the women are her birth mother, biological grandmother, and adoptive mother.<br /><br />1980 was a difficult time in apartheid-era South Africa for those who opposed government policies; it was extremely dangerous to act outside the law. As a bi-racial couple in a country governed by strict laws of racial segregation, Valerie and Johan’s love affair was clandestine. The consequence of their forbidden love, if discovered, would be immediate incarceration. A child from such a union was unthinkable. Discovering she is pregnant, Valerie is faced with imminent exposure. Unable to communicate with Johan, who is being closely monitored by the police, she makes decisions that will have far-reaching consequences. Her actions, as well as those of her mother, Sharon Spencer, and Grace Walker – Fran’s adoptive mother, raise the question: More than biology, what does it take to be a mother?<br /><br />Fran despairs when, amidst prejudice and recrimination, her search<i> </i>discovers a family alienated and broken. But the journey to South Africa is a coming of age for her when she falls in love with a fellow student. She gains insights which help her understand and forgive the circumstances that surrounded her birth.<br />

<h2>What if the sky was deadly?</h2><p>Seventeen-year-old Fin has never stepped foot on the surface of the Earth. Working the mines deep below has been the only life she has ever known, an underground existence of sweat and monotony in service to the Enhanced Human Coalition—the genetically-modified who control the underground from the world above. Every Dweller underground understands that you serve the EHC up top, or you don’t eat.</p><p>Two hundred years after the planet’s magnetic poles began to flip, Earth’s surface has become irradiated and unsustainable. As the land, water, and even the air grew toxic, the underprivileged were doomed to a life of hard labor underground, while the Enhanced Human Coalition on the surface enjoy their spoils.</p><p>But now, Fin and her friends discover a stolen piece of EHC tech that modifies genetics, giving them the abilities of those up top—varied levels of increased strength, intelligence, and adaptation to the surface’s harsh conditions. The theft of this technology triggers a manhunt, forcing them to flee to the most dangerous place they could possibly go… aboveground.</p><p><strong>Can she save a world broken in two?</strong></p><p>Fans of The Maze Runner, Configured, and Influence will devour this fast-paced, innovative sci-fi story.</p>

Da im Spanischen sich das Grundverb so verändert, dass es die Person aussagt, sind die einzelne Teile (außer Teil 3 Wörterbuch und Teil 4 Verschiedenes auseinanderhalten) personenbezogen gestaltet.<br />Durch diesen einzigartigen Aufbau lernen Sie einprägsam und zeitsparend. Außerdem lernen Sie gleich die Grammatik mit, ohne sich groß später damit auseinander setzen zu müssen.<br />Die Kurzsätze enthalten alle Themen des Alltages.<br /><br />Dieses Buch richtet sich an Anfänger, Wiedereinsteiger und Fortgeschrittene, wenn es mit dem Sprechen doch noch nicht so klappt.<br />Empfehlung: Anfänger beginnen mit Teil 3 Anfänger mit schriftlicher Aussprache – Wörterbuch.<br /><br />Der Sprachkurs für die heutige schnelllebig Zeit.<br />Wer hat heute noch Zeit? Außerdem möchte man so schnell wie möglich einen Erfolg erzielen. Was für das erlernen einer Sprache bedeutet: So schnell wie möglich sprechen zu können!<br />Sprechen und lesen zu können erfolgt wesentlich schneller mit kurzen verständlichen, einprägsamen Sätzen.<br />Das ist die Basis dieses Buches. Denn jeder weiß, wie schnell die spanische Sprache gesprochen wird. Wenn man im Gespräch nicht sofort antworten kann ist die Situation auch schon wieder vorbei.<br />Deshalb ist ein Grundschatz über alles was man tut und macht mit Kurzsätze erforderlich.<br />Hier liegt der Vorteil der Alltagskurzsätze, sie lassen sich leicht und schnell wiederholen, sind ideal für den Alltagsgebrauch.<br />Dies ist auch der Grund, warum man im Fremdsprachenland bzw. mit einen Geliebten einer Geliebten die Fremdsprache schneller lernt: Wiederholtes sprechen der Alltagssätze.<br /><br />Beispiele aus 465 zweisprachige Positionen des Teil 5 Nosotros. - Wir<br /><br />Aceptamos el desafío. - Wir nehmen die Herausforderung an.<br /><br />Buscamos un sillón negro para el cuarto de estar. - Wir suchen einen schwarzen Sessel für das Wohnzimmer.<br /><br />Si continuamos así. - Wenn wir so weitermachen.<br /><br />Tenemos que avisar los abuelos. - Wir müssen die Großeltern verständigen.<br /><br />Ahora, debemos interrumpir la reunión. - Wir müssen jetzt die Sitzung, Besprechung unterbrechen.<br /><br />Hoy mismo enviamos el prospecto. - Wir verschicken den Prospekt heute noch.<br /><br />Nos movemos en la dirección equivocada. - Wir bewegen uns in die falsche Richtung.<br /><br />Pasamos a la votación. - Kommen wir nun zur Abstimmung.<br /><br />No queremos esperar hasta las diez. - Wir wollen nicht bis zehn Uhr warten.<br /><br />¿Que tal si nos vemos mañana de madrugada? - Wie wäre es, wenn wir uns morgen früh (bei Tagesanbruch) sehen? Etcétera. - Und so weiter.<br /><br />Kurzsätze lassen sich im Schnelldurchlauf wiederholen, so kann man zeitsparend Defizite beheben. Es wird bewusst auf schwierige Namen, Geschichten sowie Handlungen verzichtet, damit Sie sich nur auf diese Kurzsätze konzentrieren können. Sie eignen sich in kurzer Zeit einen riesigen Kurzsatzschatz an, auf welchen Sie im Gespräch zugreifen können. Dies vermittelt Ihnen Sicherheit, Mut und Gelassenheit.<br />Nach Beendigung dieses Kurses sprechen Sie spanisch.<br />Wer aufgibt verschenkt die Option, kurze Zeit später spanisch sprechen und lesen zu können. Außerdem ist die bereits investierte Zeit damit verloren.<br />¡Que te diviertas! - Viel Spaß!

<b>Wartime Holland. Who can you trust?</b> <br /><br />Deep in the Veluwe woods lies a secret that frustrates the Germans. Convinced that Jews are hiding close by they can find no proof.<br /><br />The secret is Berkenhout, a purpose-built village of huts sheltering dozens of persecuted people. <br />Young tearaway Jan roams the woods looking for adventure and fallen pilots. His dream comes true when he stumbles across an American airman, Donald C. McDonald. But keeping him hidden sets off a disastrous chain of events. <br /><br />Sofie, a Jewish Dutch girl, struggles to adapt to living in Berkenhout, away from her family and friends. As weeks turn to months, she’s worried they’ll abandon her altogether. <br /><br />Henk Hauer, head woodman, is in charge of building the underground huts and ensuring the Berkenhout inhabitants stay safe. <br />But many grow suspicious of his liaisons with the Germans. Is he passing on secret information that could endanger lives?<br /><br />All it takes is one small fatal slip to change the course of all their lives for ever.
