The Woman From Hell
The Woman From Hell
Wanda Lane failed to warm Theo Grant’s heart despite being with him for three years. After experiencing so much pain and suffering plenty of humiliation and injustice in marriage, she resolutely decided to let go. She handed him a divorce agreement. “Since there’s no love between us, let’s get a divorce.” She did not expect a child to grow within her womb after their divorce. When her ex-husband ran into her during a pregnancy checkup, he walked over in large strides and stopped her from leaving the washroom. “Whose child is it?” “Don’t worry. It’s definitely not yours, Mr. Grant,” Wanda said with a faint smile on her face.

Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You
Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You
Jason Reynolds,Ibram X. Kendi Self-Development
The #1 New York Times bestseller and a USAToday bestseller! A timely, crucial, and empowering exploration of racism--and antiracism--in America This is NOT a history book. This is a book about the here and now. A book to help us better understand why we are where we are. A book about race. The construct of race has always been used to gain and keep power, to create dynamics that separate and silence. This remarkable reimagining of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi's National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning reveals the history of racist ideas in America, and inspires hope for an antiracist future. It takes you on a race journey from then to now, shows you why we feel how we feel, and why the poison of racism lingers. It also proves that while racist ideas have always been easy to fabricate and distribute, they can also be discredited. Through a gripping, fast-paced, and energizing narrative written by beloved award-winner Jason Reynolds, this book shines a light on the many insidious forms of racist ideas--and on ways readers can identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their daily lives.

A Woman In The Shadows
A Woman In The Shadows
Maria Pia Oelker Literature&Fiction
A historical novel set in Tuscany in the 18th century, during the enlightened government of Pietro Leopoldo of Hapsburg Lorraine. Autobiographical memories of the Grand Duchess Maria Luisa, his wife and confidante.<br><br>“Vienna 1792. Maria Ludovica of Bourbon, the Spanish Infanta, for many years Grand Duchess of Tuscany and now Empress of the Holy Roman Empire, watches impotently the sudden death of her beloved consort, Pietro Leopoldo of Hapsburg, and from that moment begins almost frenetically to rekindle, one after the other, her innumerable memories of a life, still short, but intensely lived, beside the man who, since their first meeting had fascinated and conquered her, and to whom she had been a discrete and faithful companion. Public facts are weaved together with private feelings, with joys and suffering, in a sequence of urgent events. The Empress unconsciously knows, has always known, that she cannot survive for long (Editor’s note: she will in fact die just two months later) after the death of her husband and therefore must hurry to organise her memories, to finally manage to give an answer to the most important question for her: what did she really mean to him? Only a political and dynastic link, the mother of his children, friend and confidante or the woman he loved notwithstanding everything?”
