              Dresden: The Fire and the Darkness (EPUB ebook)

              By McKay, Sinclair

              The Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller'Powerful . . . there is rage in his ink. McKay's book grips by its passion and originality. Some 25,000 people perished in the firestorm that raged through the city. I have never seen it better described' Max Hastings, Sunday TimesPublished for... the 75th anniversaryIn February 1945 the Allies obliterated Dresden, the 'Florence of the Elbe'. Bombs weighing over 1,000 lbs fell every seven and a half seconds and an estimated 25,000 people were killed. Was Dresden a legitimate military target or was the bombing a last act of atavistic mass murder in a war already won?From the history of the city to the attack itself, conveyed in a minute-by-minute account from the first of the flares to the flames reaching almost a mile high - the wind so searingly hot that the lungs of those in its path were instantly scorched - through the eerie period of reconstruction, bestselling author Sinclair McKay creates a vast canvas and brings it alive with touching human detail.Along the way we encounter, among many others across the city, an elderly air-raid warden and his wife vainly striving to keep order amid devouring flames, a doctor who carried on operating while his home was in ruins, novelist Kurt Vonnegut who never thought that his own side might want to unleash the roaring fire, and fifteen-year-old Winfried Bielss, who, having spent the evening ushering refugees, wanted to get home to his stamp collection.Impeccably researched and deeply moving, McKay uses never-before-seen sources to relate the untold stories of civilians and vividly conveys the texture of contemporary life. Dresden is invoked as a byword for the illimitable cruelties of war, but with the distance of time, it is now possible to approach this subject with a much clearer gaze, and with a keener interest in the sorts of lives that ordinary people lived and lost, or tried to rebuild.Writing with warmth and colour about morality in war, the instinct for survival, the gravity of mas

              Jane in Love (EPUB ebook)

              By Givney, Rachel

              'Artfully written and engaging, Jane in Love is a lively effusion of wit and humour.' - Graeme Simsion At age twenty-eight, Jane Austen should be seeking a suitable husband, but all she wants to do is write. She is forced to take extreme measures in her quest to find true love - ...which lands her in the most extraordinary of circumstances. Magically, she finds herself in modern-day England, where horseless steel carriages line the streets and people wear very little clothing. She forms a new best friend in fading film star Sofia Wentworth, and a genuine love interest in Sofia's brother Fred, who has the audacity to be handsome, clever and kind-hearted. She is also delighted to discover that she is now a famous writer, a published author of six novels and beloved around the globe. But as Jane's romance with Fred blossoms, her presence in the literary world starts to waver. She must find a way to stop herself disappearing from history before it's too late. A modern-day reimagining of the life of one of the world's most celebrated writers, this wonderfully witty romantic comedy offers a new side to Jane's story, which sees her having to choose between true love in the present and her career as a writer in the past. 'Rachel Givney's Jane in Love is everything I wanted it to be and more. It is a delightful modern-day reimagining of Jane Austen's life, full of rich and nuanced characters... It's one of those books that you finish and then want to shout about to everyone who will listen... Givney has created a modern classic, with all the charm and wit we love about Austen in a gorgeous modern England setting. You'll not be disappointed in this fun, delightful and completely entertaining read. I can only hope we get a movie one day!' - Better Reading 'Jane in Love is pure romp with the playful spirit of fanfic. Rachel Givney is a screenwriter with a highly developed understanding of plot structure and narrative drive, and there are some hilarious scenes as Jane comes to term

              Money School: Become financially independent and reclaim your life (EPUB ebook)

              By Filipich, Lacey

              'Time poor' is the catch-cry of our era, and yet end-of-life retirement means we have an average of two decades of feeling time rich to look forward to . . . when we're old. How arse-about is that? But there is an alternative to working your butt off for decades and retiring when... you're worn out: it's called financial independence, and it means being able to cover life's essentials and afford the luxuries you want without having to turn up to a job each day. Imagine: the freedom and flexibility to work if, when and where you like, go travelling, spend time with family or start that business you've been dreaming of. And with enough time and a way to earn, it's achievable for most people through the power of passive income. Lacey Filipich knows because she's done it herself - and has been teaching the strategies and steps for financial independence for a decade through her education company, Money School. Now, she'll teach you all her tried-and-true lessons for redesigning your personal finances to create the life you really want. From maximising your income and cutting costs without big sacrifice, to property, shares and retirement funds, Money School explains exactly how to build a passive income that will completely change your life. Take control of how you spend your time and money to make them work for you - and get on the fast track to being financially independent and time rich.
