Book Description :

Was beautiful, headstrong Angelica Carroll another supposed longlost heiress claiming her right to the Fortune family riches? Not this time. Because twenty-five years ago, someone saw to it that the new baby Fortune remained a secret. And now someone—maybe the heiress, maybe one of their own—was blackmailing the powerful, wealthy Fortunes big-time. Yet when the family hired private investigator Flynt Corrigan to insinuate himself into Angelica's life, the handsome, jaded man mysteriously married the heiress. And now everyone—including the love-struck new bride—had a private stake in keeping the mystery under wraps….

Book Description :

By tracing the largely forgotten eighteenth-century migration of elite mixed-race individuals from Jamaica to Great Britain, Children of Uncertain Fortune reinterprets the evolution of British racial ideologies as a matter of negotiating family membership. Using wills, legal petitions, family correspondences, and inheritance lawsuits, Daniel Livesay is the first scholar to follow the hundreds of children born to white planters and Caribbean women of color who crossed the ocean for educational opportunities, professional apprenticeships, marriage prospects, or refuge from colonial prejudices. The presence of these elite children of color in Britain pushed popular opinion in the British Atlantic world toward narrower conceptions of race and kinship. Members of Parliament, colonial assemblymen, merchant kings, and cultural arbiters--the very people who decided Britain's colonial policies, debated abolition, passed marital laws, and arbitrated inheritance disputes--rubbed shoulders with these mixed-race Caribbean migrants in parlors and sitting rooms. Upper-class Britons also resented colonial transplants and coveted their inheritances; family intimacy gave way to racial exclusion. By the early nineteenth century, relatives had become strangers.

But when Isabelle feels the call to return to Runny Cove and use the magic of the farm to stop the rain, her loyalty is put to the test. Can she choose between her new home and the one she left behind? In the spirit of Roald Dahl, Suzanne Selfors spins a wonderful and weird middle grade tale. Now in an entirely new package! An Imprint Book “Fortune’s Magic Farm is a love apple for all readers, delicious and magical.” —Grace Lin, Newbery Honor author of Where the Mountain Meets the Moon “Few authors have ever come close to being compared to Dahl, and nobody has his distinctive flavor. One of the very few authors to do so would have to be Suzanne Selfors....A pure pleasure to read for child and adult alike.” —Elizabeth Bird, School Library Journal, A Fuse #8 Production “Placing an indomitable character in situations as bleak as they are absurd, Selfors has written a darkly comic adventure in the tradition of Roald Dahl.” —Junior Library Guild “Beautiful writing, quirky characters, and an imaginative plot...make this a good choice, showing how one little girl can use her spirit to save the world.” —Booklist “Readers will cheer for Isabelle throughout the story.” —School Library Journal “Readers will cozy up to the tale’s quirky characters and enjoy the many twists and turns of this magical adventure.” —Kirkus Reviews “Hand this to fans of Eva Ibbotson, to kids who like their magic with some meat to it, and to adults who want a fabulous read-aloud.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books “This quirky book...is full of silly songs and vivid secondary characters.” —The Seattle Times Junior Library Guild Award Florida Sunshine State Young Readers Award List (2012–13) Kansas’s William Allen White Children’s Book Award List (2011–12) 2009 Austin Waldorf Children’s Choice Award, Gold Medal in the third- and fourth-grade category
