Kathleen's father, now long dead, was the receding type. Kathleen is well into adulthood before she finds the strength to escape her mother's clutches. She is thirty-two when she finally moves into a flat of her own, against her mother's will. But independence can bring loneliness, and her job managing the Curl Up'n'Dye hairdressing salon doesn't offer much opportunity for friendship. She and her mother are still tied together by the tragedy of her father, whose ghost is hard to dispel. Kathleen meets Jim, but her fragility and his carelessness make poor partners. When his attention starts to waver, she doesn't stop fate from providing its revenge. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Fiction; Drama & Sagas; ISBN: 0732273722. ISBN/EAN: 9780732273729.

Picador, Great Britain, 1978. Reprint. Medium Trade Paperback. Good. 639 pages. Covers have moderate creasing. Edges of covers have superficial wear. Spine has moderate reading creases. Edges of pages are slightly foxed. Pages are considerably tanned. Alex Haley's grandmother used to tell him stories about their family back through the generations, all the way to a man she called "the African". She said he had lived across the ocean and had been out in the forest one day chopping wood when he was set upon by four men, beaten, chained and dragged aboard a slave ship bound for Colonial America. Haley began to search for documentation that might authenticate the narrative. The result is this two-century drama of Kunta Kinte and the six generations who came after him - slaves and freedmen, farmers and blacksmiths, lumbermill workers and Pullman porters, lawyers and architects - and one author.

Gravesend Light

By David Payne

Doubleday, 2000. First Edition. Hardcover. Good (ex-library)/Near Fine. 383 pages. Text and spine/cover marked with Library stamps, in all other respects in very good condition throughout. Boards have no wear, rubbing or soiling. Edges of dust jacket have light bumping. Dust jacket is unclipped. Dust jacket is protected in clear, plastic sleeve. Edges of pages are lightly browned. Pages are lightly tanned. In Gravesend Light, award-winning author David Payne masterfully combines moving drama, a high-seas adventure, and a deeply affecting love story. It is the story of Joe Madden, an anthropologist who has returned to his family's summer home on North Carolina's Outer Banks. Little Roanoke, with its traditions dating back to the time of Sir Walter Raleigh, is an isolated enclave threatened by the encroachment of modern civilization -- and the subject of Joe's study. Here, he meets two people who will alter the course of his future: Ray Barstow, a fisherman and ex-con who, aboard the Father's Price, teaches him more than just the ropes of one of the world's most dangerous professions; and Day Shaughnessey, a Yale-educated Ob-Gyn and ardent feminist whose views on reproductive rights come into conflict with the deeply religious people of Little Roanoke. The events of the story culminate in a savage storm at sea that the crew of the Father's Price -- including Joe Madden -- may not survive. Quantity Available: 1.

George Edjali's father is Indian, his mother Scottish. When the family begins to receive vicious anonymous letters, many about their son, they put it down to racial prejudice. They appeal to the police, to no less than the Chief Constable, but to their dismay he appears to suspect George of being the letters' author. Then someone starts slashing horses and livestock. Again the police seem to suspect the shy, aloof Birmingham solicitor. He is arrested and, on the flimsiest evidence, sent to trial, found guilty and sentenced to seven years' hard labour. rthur Conan Doyle, famous as the creator of the world's greatest detective, is mourning his first wife (having been chastely in Quantity Available: 1.
