Une Villa en Sicile : Vengeance et Orangeraie (Un Cozy Mystery avec Chats et Chiens – Livre 5) by Fiona Grace Summary

« Très divertissant. Chaudement recommandé pour la bibliothèque de tout lecteur qui apprécie un mystère bien écrit avec des rebondissements et une intrigue intelligente. Vous ne serez pas déçu. C’est un excellent moyen de passer un week-end hivernal ! » --Books and Movie Reviews (à propos de Meurtre au Manoir) UNE VILLA EN SICILE : VENGEANCE ET ORANGERAIE est le cinquième livre d'une captivante nouvelle série de cosy mysteries par l'auteur à succès Fiona Grace, auteur de Meurtre au Manoir, un best-seller n°1 avec plus de 100 critiques cinq étoiles (et un téléchargement gratuit) ! Audrey Smart, 34 ans, a entrepris un changement majeur dans sa vie, quittant sa vie de vétérinaire (ainsi qu’une succession de romances ratées) et déménageant en Sicile pour acheter une maison à 1$ - et se lancer dans des rénovations, domaine dont elle ignore à peu près tout. C'est la course folle entre le nouveau refuge municipal et la rénovation chaotique de sa propre maison — sans compter son nouveau chéri. Lorsqu’Audrey est contactée pour retrouver un chien errant blessé dans l’orangeraie d'un vieux domaine, elle s'attend à tout, sauf à trouver l'amour. Le propriétaire du domaine est charmant, séduisant — et pour le moins singulier. Un mafieux ? Audrey n’est pas au bout de ses surprises, ultime découverte en quittant le verger : un cadavre. Tome 6 — VICTIME et CANNOLI — déjà disponible ! Un cosy plein de mystère, de rires, d'intrigues, de rénovations, d'animaux, de cuisine, de vin - et bien sûr, d'amour - UNE VILLA EN SICILE saura vous captiver et vous tenir en haleine jusqu’à la toute dernière page. « Le livre avait du cœur et toute l'histoire fonctionnait de manière très fluide, sans sacrifier ni l'intrigue, ni la personnalité. J'ai adoré les personnages – il y avait tellement de personnages fantastiques ! J'ai hâte de lire ce que Fiona Grace nous réserve pour la suite ! » -- Critique d'Amazon (à propos de Meurtre au Manoir) «Wow, ce livre décolle et ne s'arrête jamais ! Je n'ai pas pu le poser ! Je recommande chaudement pour ceux qui aiment un super cosy mystery avec des rebondissements, des retournements, de la romance et un parent perdu depuis longtemps ! Je lis le prochain livre en ce moment même ! » -- Critique d'Amazon (à propos de Meurtre au Manoir) « Ce livre va à un rythme plutôt soutenu. Il a tout juste le bon mélange de personnages, de lieux et d'émotions. J’ai eu du mal à le reposer et j'espère lire le prochain livre de la série. » -- Critique d'Amazon (à propos de Meurtre au Manoir)

Ma terre promise by Ari Shavit Summary

Ma terre promise a obtenu de nombreux prix aux États-Unis et une critique superbement élogieuse. Partisan de la paix et de la création d’un état palestinien, Ari Shavit nous offre, à travers l’histoire de sa famille et des principales étapes de la création d’Israël jusqu’à nos jours, le plus passionnant et contrasté des voyages. Des portraits – celui de son arrière grand-père qui se rendit en Terre Sainte en 1897, du premier fermier qui fit pousser des oranges à Jaffa, de l’homme qui transforma les ruines de Massada en symbole du sionisme, d’un Palestinien qui, en 1948, fut chassé de son foyer, des religieux fervents, des créateurs de société d’internet... – mettent en évidence la complexité et les contradictions de la condition israélienne. L’évocation d’un pays vibrant d’énergie qui a vécu et vit toujours au bord du gouffre. « Voici l’histoire épique qu’Israël méritait... superbement écrit... le meilleur livre sur le sujet. » The New Republic « À la fois beau et envoûtant, d’une grande rigueur morale, mais aussi dérangeant. » The Atlantic « L’un des livres les plus nuancés et provocateurs écrits sur Israël. » The Wall Street Journal « Se lit à la fois comme une histoire d’amour et un thriller. » The New York Time Traduit de l’anglais par Johan Frederik Hel Guedj

Em by Kim Thúy Summary

LONGLISTED FOR THE 2021 SCOTIABANK GILLER PRIZE Kim Thúy's Em is a virtuosic novel of profound power and sen­sitivity, and an enduring affirmation of the greatest act of resistance: love. In the midst of war, an ordinary miracle: an abandoned baby tenderly cared for by a young boy living on the streets of Saigon. The boy is Louis, the child of a long-gone American soldier. Louis calls the baby em Hồng, em meaning "little sister," or "beloved." Even though her cradle is nothing more than a cardboard box, em Hồng's life holds every possibility. Through the linked destinies of a family of characters, the novel takes its inspiration from historical events, including Operation Babylift, which evacuated thousands of biracial orphans from Saigon in April 1975, and the remarkable growth of the nail salon industry, dominated by Vietnamese expatriates all over the world. From the rubber plantations of Indochina to the massacre at My Lai, Kim Thúy sifts through the layers of pain and trauma in stories we thought we knew, revealing transcendent moments of grace and the invincibility of the human spirit.

Quand Devil, le duc de St-Ives et le plus tristement célèbre membre de l’importante famille Cynster, est surpris dans une situation compromettante avec la courageuse gouvernante Honoria Wetherby, il stupéfie le ton en proposant le mariage. Personne n’avait jamais imaginé que ce scandaleux séducteur prendrait femme un jour! Honoria, cependant, n’a pas l’intention de céder aux exigences de la bonne société et d’épouser un homme uniquement parce qu’ils ont été découverts ensemble sans un chaperon. Elle a soif d’aventure et meurt d’envie de voir le monde – et même si elle veut volontiers l’aider à résoudre le meurtre de son jeune cousin Cynster, elle compte dire adieu pour toujours à Devil une fois ce crime élucidé. Elle sous-estime toutefois le pouvoir séducteur de cet homme audacieux et courageux ainsi que la chaleur brûlante de son propre désir inassouvi. Ose-t-elle se laisser porter par sa passion dans les bras de Devil... et au centre de la plus périlleuse et réjouissante aventure de toutes?

The Hunt for the Seventh by Christine Morton-Shaw Summary

Jim moves to ancient Minerva Hall and encounters the ghosts of six children. They urge him to find the seventh child and leave him cryptic clues that point to a dark, ancient prophecy that only Jim can stop from being fulfilled. Jim turns to Einstein, a brilliant autistic boy who lives at the Hall. If anyone can help Jim, Einstein can. But the boy, who speaks in riddles, proves to be as mysterious as the dead children. Time is running out; if Jim doesn't figure out the clues, innocent people will die. Christine Morton-Shaw has linked ancient rites with modern mystery to create a chilling, suspenseful tale that will keep readers guessing to the very end.

Writing Beyond the End Times? / Écrire au-delà de la fin des temps ? by Ursula Mathis-Moser,Marie Carrière Summary

This collection of essays examines how the sense of crisis that occasionally seems to overwhelm us directs and transforms Canadian and Quebec writings in English and French, and conversely, how literature and criticism set out to counterbalance the social, economic, and ideological insecurities we live in. Ce recueil de textes étudie les manières dont le sentiment de crise qui peut parfois sembler nous submerger, oriente et transforme les écrits canadiens et québécois d’expressions anglaise et française, et inversement, comment la littérature et la critique s’efforcent de contrebalancer les insécurités sociales, économiques et idéologiques dans lesquelles nous vivons.

Acceleration by Graham McNamee Summary

It’s a hot, hot summer, and in the depths of the Toronto Transit Authority’s Lost and Found, 17-year-old Duncan is cataloging lost things and sifting through accumulated junk. And between Jacob, the cranky old man who runs the place, and the endless dusty boxes overflowing with stuff no one will ever claim, Duncan’s just about had enough. Then he finds a little leather book. It’s a diary filled with the dark and dirty secrets of a twisted mind, a serial killer stalking his prey in the subway. And Duncan can’t make himself stop reading. What would you do with a book like that? How far would you go to catch a madman? And what if time was running out. . . .

Les mots pour le dire et autres romans by Marie Cardinal Summary

« Il y a quelques années, j'ai lu Les mots pour le dire de Marie Cardinal. Plus que l'enthousiasme de la personne qui m'a conseillé ce livre, c'est son titre qui m'a persuadée : cinq mots pris à Boileau qui décrivent clairement tout le programme et l'ambition d'un romancier. Pourtant Cardinal n'avait pas projeté une fiction :; il s'agissait de documenter sa folie, sa thérapie et le processus complexe de sa guérison dans une langue aussi exacte et évocatrice que possible, afin de rendre accessible à autrui son expérience et ce qu'elle en avait elle-même compris. Un genre de récit où la vie semble venir se mouler de façon saisissante dans certaines sortes de psychanalyse. Et Cardinal a réussi de manière idéale à restituer l'"histoire profonde" de sa vie. » Toni Morrison

A Noël, tous les miracles sont permis. Depuis sa plus tendre enfance, Marybeth confie ses joies et ses peines à James, son grand amour épistolaire. Il est la personne qu’elle aime le plus au monde, le seul qui la connaît vraiment, celui sur qui elle peut compter. Mais voilà, James refuse de la rencontrer, de peur de briser la magie qui s’opère entre eux. Aussi est-elle bouleversée lorsque Craig, un séduisant inconnu, fait irruption dans sa vie. Lui, c’est un homme de chair et de sang, qui éveille en elle des sentiments inédits, une attirance irrépressible.Dès lors, et à mesure que le séjour de Craig se prolonge à L’Orangeraie, sa maison d’hôtes chaudement décorée pour les fêtes, Marybeth est partagée entre les deux hommes de sa vie. Qui de James ou de Craig saura faire basculer son cœur ? A propos de l'auteur :On dit des romans de Tara Taylor Quinn qu’ils sont émotionnellement et psychologiquement très forts. Pour l’auteur, ils sont juste un moyen d’exprimer la profusion de sentiments qui émanent d’elle en permanence. Lauréate du Reader’s Choice Award, elle a déjà signé plus de soixante-quinze romans.

Paroles d'experts. Etudes sur la pensée institutionnelle du développement by Françoise Ugochukwu Summary

Pour résoudre les problèmes économiques et sociaux les plus variés, l'intervention publique de "développement" doit d'abord construire des grilles de lecture du monde. En ce sens, elle est essentiellement fondée, pour le meilleur et pour le pire, sur une activité intellectuelle, voire 'cognitive", qui dans les faits relève tout autant de savoirs empiriques, de la "pensée sauvage', que de modèles constitués et indépendants des contextes. Les études réunies dans ce livre abordent cette question à partir d'une observation concrète d'une variété de situations du monde.

Le temps des orphelins by Claude Rodhain Summary

1944, à quelques mois de la Libération, le jeune Charles Baudrin est un orphelin qui ignore tout de sa famille. Brinquebalé de foyers en pensions, de familles d'accueil en maison de correction, il n'a qu'à un but : s'évader pour connaître la vérité sur ses origines. À seulement 12 ans, il s'enfuit et traverse la France à pied. Direction Versailles, le siège de l'Assistance Publique. Là il rencontre Robin, un frère dont il ignorait l'existence. Celui-ci lui apprend qu'ils ne sont pas deux, mais cinq d'une même fratrie. Julie, l'aînée, qui avait 10 ans à l'époque des faits, raconte à Charles comment et pourquoi les parents les ont abandonnés. C'était la guerre, la misère, la pauvreté... Dans un monde du début des années 1960 en plein essor, entre amertume et désir de revanche sur la vie, Charles est bien décidé à se tailler une place au soleil. Pour montrer à tous qu'il n'est pas un « enfant de personne », pas un simple objet qu'on abandonne. L'espoir d'une nouvelle existence s'esquisse alors qu'il découvre la liberté et même l'amour. Mais, alors que la mère qui l'a abandonné des années plus tôt veille sur le lui en secret, le jeune homme saura-t-il oublier d'où il vient pour survivre ?
