Millie Bird ist sieben, als sie ihr erstes totes Ding findet, Rambo, ihren Hund. Von da an führt sie Buch über alles, was auf der Welt verloren geht: die Stubenfliege. Die Großmutter. Der Weihnachtsbaum. Darauf, dass sie auch ihren Dad in ihr Buch der Toten Dinge eintragen muss, war sie überhaupt nicht vorbereitet, und auch nicht darauf, dass ihre Mom sie im Kaufhaus stehen lässt und nicht wiederkommt. Karl ist siebenundachtzig, als sein Sohn ihn ins Altersheim bringt. Hier wird er nicht bleiben, denkt Karl, als er seinem Sohn nachschaut, und kurz darauf haut er ab. Erst mal ins Kaufhaus, bis sich was Besseres findet. Dort trifft er Millie. Agatha ist zweiundachtzig und geht nicht mehr aus dem Haus, seit ihr Mann gestorben ist. Halb versteckt hinter Gardine und Efeu, sitzt sie am Küchen fenster und beschimpft die Passanten. Bis das kleine Mädchen von gegenüber zurückkommt, allein ... Von Verlust und Trauer erzählt Brooke Davis in diesem berührenden Roman – und zugleich von einem Abenteuer voll furiosem Witz: Wie drei, die unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten, aufbrechen, um Millies Mutter zu suchen, und dabei zurück ins Leben und die Liebe finden.

Vom alten England in die Straßencafés von Paris, über das in der Augusthitze flirrende Korsika bis ins pulsierende New York führt uns diese fesselnde Familiensaga. Sie erzählt von der Macht der wahren Liebe über Jahrzehnte, Kontinente und Generationen hinweg – und davon, wie Herzen und Familien gerade dann miteinander vereint werden, wenn sie für immer verloren scheinen. England, 1928: Alice und Tom kennen sich aus unbeschwerten Kindertagen: sie, die vor Energie sprühende junge Aristokratin, und er, der noch unbekannte Maler. Ihre Liebe fühlt sich an wie die reinste Magie – doch nicht nur Alices Familie setzt alles daran, eine gemeinsame Zukunft zu verhindern. London, sechzig Jahre später: Die junge Fotografin Kate findet im Nachlass ihrer Großmutter eine alte Porträt-Skizze, die ihrer verstorbenen Mutter verblüffend ähnlich sieht. Was hat es mit der Zeichnung auf sich? Und wer ist die Frau darauf? Um dem Geheimnis um das Porträt und um die Vergangenheit ihrer Mutter näher zu kommen, macht sich Kate auf die Suche nach dem Künstler, dem berühmten Maler Thomas Stafford ... Die Stunde der Liebenden erzählt von Sehnsucht und Hoffnung, von Verlust und Schmerz, von Abenteuer und Freiheit. Davon, aus Konventionen auszubrechen und den Mut zu finden, seine Ängste zu überwinden. Und vor allem von Liebe und Nähe, die man zulassen muss, um sein Glück im Leben zu finden.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Geowissenschaften / Geographie - Didaktik d. Geographie, Universitat Bremen, 17 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Indien - Land der Gegensatze und Paradebeispiel fur Armut, Polarisierung, Ungleichheit und Kinderarbeit. So erheben auch der Film Die verlorene Brieftasche. Lost and Found" sowie die beigefugten Unterrichtsmaterialien den Anspruch, die Problematik der Kinderarbeit zu thematisieren und die Schulerinnen und Schuler zu einer Auseinandersetzung mit dieser Problematik anzuregen. Aber ist Kinderarbeit das Hauptthema des Films? Wird nicht vielmehr die Uberheblichkeit der Erwachsenen gegenuber den Kindern in den Vordergrund gestellt? Warum also beziehen sich die Unterrichtsvorschlage hauptsachlich auf Kinderarbeit und nicht auf das Verhaltnis zwischen Erwachsenen und Kindern bzw. zwischen der armen und der reichen Bevolkerungsschicht? Die vorliegende Hausarbeit analysiert die von der Fachstelle Filme fur eine Welt" (Hrsg.) erstellten Unterrichtsvorschlage und hinterfragt ihre Anwendbarkeit fur den Geographieunterricht. Zudem werden Alternativvorschlage entwickelt, die gegebenenfalls besser geeignet sind, den Schulerinnen und Schulern das Hauptanliegen sowie weitere Themen des Films zu vermitteln."

Jaycee's story was revealed: For eighteen years, she had lived in an outbuilding on the Garrido property in Antioch, CA, just two hours away from her childhood home. Kept in complete isolation, she was raped by Garrido, who fathered her two daughters. When news broke of Jaycee's discovery, there was a huge outpouring of relief across the nation. But questions remain: How did the Garridos slip past authorities? And how did Jaycee endure her captivity? This is the story of a girl-next-door who was Lost and Found.

Ever since his classic debut, The Tar-Aiym Krang, the first of the wildly successful Pip and Flinx adventures, New York Times bestselling author Alan Dean Foster has captivated readers around the world. Now this writer of bold imagination and stunning originality has created an electrifying space epic set in a universe at once strangely familiar and starkly terrifying. Familiar because the universe is ours; terrifying because the human condition might soon be. . . . Not so long ago Marcus Walker was just another young commodities trader in Chicago, working hard and playing harder. But that’s all in the past, part of a life half forgotten—a reality that vanished when he was attacked while camping and tossed aboard a starship bound for deep space. Desperately, Walker searches for explanations, only to realize he’s trapped in a horrifying nightmare that is all too real. Instead of being a rich hotshot at the top of the food chain, Walker discovers he’s just another amusing novelty, part of a cargo of “cute” aliens from primitive planets—destined to be sold as pets to highly advanced populations in “civilized” regions of the galaxy. Even if he weren’t constantly watched by his captors, Walker has few options. After all, there is no escape from a speeding starship. Another man might resign himself to the inevitable and hope to be sold to a kindly owner, but not Walker. This former college football star has plenty of American ingenuity and no intention of admitting defeat, now or ever. In fact, he’s only just begun to fight. The adventure will continue with two more novels From the Hardcover edition.
