Book Description :

* Costa Book Award for First Novel finalist * Dagger Award finalist "Kate Hamer's gripping debut novel immediately recalls the explosion of similarly titled books and movies, from Stieg Larsson's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and its sequels, to The Girl on the Train to Gone Girl ... "--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "Keeps the reader turning pages at a frantic clip... What's most powerful here is not whodunnit, or even why, but how this mother and daughter bear their separation, and the stories they tell themselves to help endure it." --Celeste Ng (Everything I Never Told You) "Compulsively readable...Beautifully written and unpredictable, I had to stop myself racing to the end to find out what happened." --Rosamund Lupton (Sister) "Both gripping and sensitive -- beautifully written, it is a compulsive, aching story full of loss and redemption." --Lisa Ballantyne (The Guilty One) "Hamer's dark tale of the lost and found is nearly impossible to put down." --Booklist Newly single mom Beth has one constant, gnawing worry: that her dreamy eight-year-old daughter, Carmel, who has a tendency to wander off, will one day go missing. And then one day, it happens: On a Saturday morning thick with fog, Beth takes Carmel to a local outdoor festival, they get separated in the crowd, and Carmel is gone. Shattered, Beth sets herself on the grim and lonely mission to find her daughter, keeping on relentlessly even as the authorities tell her that Carmel may be gone for good. Carmel, meanwhile, is on a strange and harrowing journey of her own--to a totally unexpected place that requires her to live by her wits, while trying desperately to keep in her head, at all times, a vision of her mother ... Alternating between Beth's story and Carmel's, and written in gripping prose that won't let go, The Girl in the Red Coat--like Emma Donoghue's Room and M. L. Stedman's The Light Between Oceans--is an utterly immersive story that's impossible to put down . . . and impossible to forget.

  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

When she first saw Schindler's List--to whose premiere in Germany she was invited--Roma Ligocka suddenly realized she was witnessing a part of her own life. She felt instinctively that the little girl in the red coat--the only spot of color in the film--was her. When she had lived in the Krakow ghetto during the Second World War she had worn a strawberry-red coat given to her by her grandmother. Unlike the girl in Spielbeg's film, however, Roma survived the war. Startled by this eerie conjunction of art and reality, Ligocka determined to write the story of her own life, to find out what had become of the little girl, and to measure who she now was. From a harrowing childhood under the Nazis, described with a simplicity and innocence that lends it even greater power, through the trials of living in Communist Poland, to a career in the theater and film (an artistic struggle paralleling that of her cousin, Roman Polanski), Ligocka traces her struggle for self-defiition and happiness. The Girl in the Red Coat is a courageous and moving story of survival and triumph.

Think Downton Abbey, set in the heart of Boston Irish domestic worker Norah King's decision to ask her wealthy employer, Caroline Parker, for an elegant red coat that the Beacon Hill matriarch has marked for donation ignites a series of events that neither woman could have fathomed. The unlikely exchange will impact their respective daughters and families for generations to come, from the coat's original owner, marriage-minded collegian Cordelia Parker, to the determined and spirited King sisters of South Boston, Rosemary, Kay, and Rita. As all of these young women experience the realities of life – love and loss, conflict and joy, class prejudices and unexpected prospects – the red coat reveals the distinction between cultures, generations, and landscapes in Boston during the 1940s and 50s, a time of change, challenge, and opportunity. Meet the proud, working-class Irish and staid, upper-class Brahmins through the contrasting lives of these two families and their friends and neighbors. See how the Parkers and the Kings each overcome sudden tragedy with resolve and triumph. And witness the profound impact of a mother’s heart on her children’s souls. Carlson brings us front and center with her knowing weave of Celtic passion – both tragic and joyful – words of wisdom, romance, humor, and historical events. Dive into Boston feet first! The Red Coat is a rich novel that chronicles the legacy of Boston from both sides of the city, Southie and the Hill.

Book Description :

My name is Ruby. I live with Barbara and Mick. They're not my real parents, but they tell me what to do, and what to say. I'm supposed to say that the bruises on my arms and the black eye came from falling down the stairs. But there are things I won't say. I won't tell them I'm going to hunt for my real parents. I don't say a word about Shadow, who sits on the stairs, or the Wasp Lady I saw on the way to bed. I did tell Mick that I saw the woman in the buttercup dress, hanging upside down from her seat belt deep in the forest at the back of our house. I told him I saw death crawl out of her. He said he'd give me a medal for lying. I wasn't lying. I'm a hunter for lost souls and I'm going to be with my real family. And I'm not going to let Mick stop me.

  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

The Man Booker Prize-winning author of The Sense of an Ending takes us on a rich, witty, revelatory tour of Belle Époque Paris, via the life story of the pioneering surgeon Samuel Pozzi. IN THE SUMMER OF 1885, three Frenchmen arrived in London for a few days' shopping: a prince, a count and a commoner with an Italian name. In time, each of these men would achieve a certain level of renown, but who were they then and what was the significance of their sojourn to England? Answering these questions, Julian Barnes unfurls the stories of their lives, playing out against the backdrop of the Belle Époque in Paris. Our guide through this world is Samuel Pozzi, the society doctor, free-thinker and man of science with a famously complicated private life, and the subject of one of John Singer Sargent's greatest portraits. In this vivid tapestry of people (Henry James, Sarah Bernhardt, Oscar Wilde, Proust, James Whistler, among many others), place, and time, we see not merely an epoch of glamour and pleasure, but, surprisingly, one of violence, prejudice and nativism--with more parallels to our own age than we might imagine. The Man in the Red Coat is, at once, a fresh portrait of the Belle Époque; an illuminating look at the longstanding exchange of ideas between Britain and France; and a life of a man who lived passionately in the moment but whose ideas and achievements were far ahead of his time.

  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

Dr. Kevin Flynn, a family physician and a coroner in Ontario, Canada accidentally breaks a family heirloom and finds four documents that start him on the trail of documenting a family tragedy set in his school-teacher parents' home in rural Ireland nine decades past. His family in Ireland did not talk about the past and what little information became available in his younger years proved to be incorrect. Using his experience of death investigation in Canada for thirty years, his odyssey takes him back to the land of his birth in search of documents in the National Archives of Ireland and interviews with people still alive who helped to throw light on the mystery and to discover and document the truth about how two sisters, Philomena, age one year and ten months and Maureen age six years and nine months, whom he never knew, came to their deaths at the hands of a teenage girl. Mary Cole had been a pupil at the Camross National School and was taught by the parents of Dr. Flynn. They took the girl into their home after she finished her primary education to care for their family of five small children in the village of Camross, nestled in the shade of the Slieve Bloom Mountains in the Irish midlands. Mr. Flynn discovered that the live-in 15 year old girl, mature beyond her years, misbehaved with some local boys at night, and after she was confronted by her employers, she denied her guilt two times until the truth was revealed before the local Parish Priest. This true story of deceit and betrayal by a young girl who nursed, fed and cared for the children of the schoolmaster and his teacher wife unites the tragedy that unfolded with Ireland's recovery from a brutal civil war with the transition from the English colonial education system that suppressed the proud traditions of the Irish language and history until the War of Independence that fostered the rebirth of national pride. It is a tale of revenge for being exposed twice before the priest and the perceived loss of her good name at the cost of two innocent and vulnerable children. So ingenious was Mary Cole that two deaths and two fires were deemed to be accidental, even after an inquest by the local coroner until after Michael and Statia Flynn had left Camross for the town of Tipperary where the author was later born and where he grew up thinking that he was 'one of ten' instead of 'one of twelve'. Astute investigation by An Garda Síochána detectives based their suspicions on a simple red woollen coat, hand made by the children's mother. Read how the poignant discovery of the little red coat in the National Archives in Dublin and the striking out of Maureen's name from the school roll book by her teacher mother were revealed.

Book Description :

Roma Ligocka has lived muliple lives over the past 50 years - artist, theatrical designer, bohemian nomad, political activist, wife and mother - but she was first a girl from the Krakow ghetto. It was only when she saw the little girl in the red coat in the film of Schindler's List that she recognized her own childhood and realised the extent of her failure to come to terms with the anguish of it. This memoir revisits the horror of her early years and reveals how far its effects have reached throughout her life. Leading an apparently successful life, she has nonetheless often been at the mercy of depressions. Now after 50 years, she is able to write about honestly examining the scars of a traumatic childhood and getting past sorrow while still acknowledging the truth of the past.
