Summary:

Forgiveness and Revenge is a powerful exploration of our attitudes to serious wrongdoings and a careful examination of the values that underlie our thinking about revenge and forgiveness. From adulterous spouses to terrorist factions, we are surrounded by wrongdoing, yet we rarely agree which response is appropriate. The problem of how to respond realistically and sensitively to the wrongs of the past remains a perplexing one. Trudy Govier clarifies our thinking on this subject by examining the moral and practical impact of revenge and forgiveness, both personal and political. Forgiveness and Revenge offers much-needed clarity and reason where emotions often prevail. It is essential reading for anyone interested in the ethics of attitudes to wrongdoing.

While imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp, Simon Wiesenthal was taken one day from his work detail to the bedside of a dying member of the SS. Haunted by the crimes in which he had participated, the soldier wanted to confess to--and obtain absolution from--a Jew. This encounter and the moral dilemma it posed raise fundamental questions about the limits and possibilities of forgiveness. Must we, can we forgive the repentant criminal? Can we forgive crimes committed against others? What do we owe the victims? Thirty-five years after the Holocaust, Wiesenthal asked leading intellectuals what they would have done in his place.

Summary:

What's a life without music...? Ruth Silvestres's childhood was marked by poverty - her mother counted out the budget in Oxo tins, whilst singing her daughters to sleep at night. Now in her late eighties, Ruth looks back on her life from her holiday home in rural France, Belair. Sitting with her son, she reflects on the changes that she experienced over the years. Despite the outbreak of World War Two, Ruth heads to university and qualifies as a teacher, but what she really wants to do is sing. Determined to follow her dream, she finds herself an agent who gets her work performing in cabarets, on cruise ships, and she eventually makes the big leap to the West End. As Ruth tells her story, we hear of adventures about make-up lessons from Max Factor, being in the chorus of a West End show starring Juliet Prowse, and being called in to perform at the 11th hour, impressing the legendary Rodgers and Hammerstein with her performance. But the greatest achievement in her life was still to come, in the form of her husband, Mike, and the life they shared together. Yet even after losing her husband, and having two hip replacements, Ruth still has a boundless energy and enthusiasm to share her inspirational tale. Filled with history and gentle memories of a time long gone, Before the Sunflowers pays homage to a beautiful life, filled with laughter, music, songs and love. Praise for Ruth Silvestre 'Exuberantly detailed account of buying a house in Lot-et-Garonne and mucking in with the peasantry...the author's great merit is that she makes us accept it on such enchanting terms' - The Observer 'Both romantic and funny. Lovingly portrays the people, history, food and traditions of this beautiful French region' - Summer Break Magazine 'Full of the mystery and romantic promise of life in rural France' A Place in the Sun Ruth Silvestre is a singer and actress who has appeared in a number of BBC productions. She was married to the artist Michael Grater, whose charming pen-and-ink drawings illustrate her books. With their two sons, they divided their time between London and the South of France.

The final book in the Sunflowers trilogy sees Ruth Silvestre and her husband returning to Bel-Air de Grèzelongue, their much-loved home in the south-west of France. In 1976 their dream of owning a peaceful summer retreat came true when they stumbled across this derelict farmhouse surrounded by fields and orchards, and saw what it could become. Over the years there has been the inevitable sadness, but also the joys of new grandchildren, anniversaries, village fetes, and splendid meals taken with their neighbours. And whilst the family has seen many changes in its time, the warm and welcoming atmosphere they first fell in love with has remained the same. Now they face their own personal tragedy, but through all their sorrows Bel-Air continues to be a place of hope and happiness, as well as extraordinary beauty.
