Book Synopsis The Hatbox Letters by : Beth Powning
Download or read book The Hatbox Letters written by Beth Powning and published by Vintage Canada. This book was released on 2010-02-05 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Beth Powning offers readers an unforgettable story of love, grief and renewal — both past and present — as well as her extraordinary perceptions of the natural world. At the age of fifty-two, Kate Harding has hit a crossroads: the pain that overwhelmed her when her husband died suddenly from a heart attack the previous year hasn’t diminished, and she is at a loss as to how to go on with her life. Living alone in her large Victorian house, its emptiness magnified by memories of better days, Kate can only dream of a time when her grief will abate, at least enough to allow her to hope for change. When Kate’s sister drops off nine antique hatboxes of papers recovered from their grandparents’ eighteenth-century home in Connecticut, Kate isn’ t sure she is ready to face the remnants of her family’s past. She’s having enough trouble going through Tom’s things. Soon, though, the smell of the hatboxes begins to permeate the air in her home and “awakens a feeling in Kate that she remembers from childhood, composed of odd emotional strands: love, sorrow, pain, contentment.” As she slowly sorts through the letters, diaries and photographs, Kate begins to find some solace in the past. But the further she delves into her grandparents’ history, the more Kate realizes that her perfect world had its own dark side — an undercurrent of tragedy, personal loss and eternal grief. Then an old acquaintance moves back to New Brunswick, and Kate begins to edge out of her solitude, surprising herself. But when a new tragedy comes, it forces Kate to begin picking up the pieces of her shattered life.
Download or read book Lost Letters written by Lori Roberts and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2012-05 with total page 345 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Ellie Morgan's life isn't going exactly as she planned. She finds herself divorced and working as a teacher in the Midwest when word arrives that a distant relative has died ... and left her everything. Ellie travels to Tennessee to attend to the estate, which includes a large plantation house that has been in the family since the early 1800s. Ellie feels drawn to the attic, where she finds a stack of letters hidden in a hatbox. The letters appear to be from a Civil War soldier by the name of Rafe Collins. Rafe fought on the Confederate side; however, the letters are addressed to Ms. Hattie Townes, whose family stood behind the Union. Ellie can't help but read the one-sided exchange, wondering at the love shared between Rafe and Hattie, despite the division of war. The more immersed Ellie gets, the more she suspects she isn't alone in the grand plantation house. A haunted spirit wanders the halls, and Ellie soon realizes it's the ghost of Rafe Collins. Distressed by his lost love, he lingers in the house, looking for answers. What ever became of Hattie? Why didn't she answer his letters? Ellie decides to try to solve Rafe's mystery-and, in the process, develops feelings for a local man. Perhaps Ellie's broken heart can be mended, and perhaps Rafe can finally find peace in the arms of his beloved.
Book Synopsis Magnificent Obsessions by : Jean Fornasiero
Download or read book Magnificent Obsessions written by Jean Fornasiero and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2014-08-11 with total page 250 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume is a tribute to the life and work of Hazel Rowley, internationally acclaimed biographer who died unexpectedly in March 2011. Her passions were many and varied: biography, politics, questions of race and sexuality, the ways in which couples negotiate the dilemmas posed by the need to retain their individuality while building a life as a couple, the deleterious effects of imposing a corporate mentality on universities – all these, and more, were subjects of intense interest to her. This collection combines essays responding to many of those interests with creative writing to honour the complexity and variety of her own magnificent contribution. Hazel Rowley, whose life and work are honoured in this collection, was the author of many articles and essays and four outstanding biographies, Christina Stead: A Biography, Richard Wright: The Life and Times, Tête-à-Tête: Simone de Beauvoir and Jean Paul Sartre, and Franklin and Eleanor: An Extraordinary Marriage.
