|What if the fairy tale came true?|
In this bittersweet love story, it isn t Beauty who needs to discover the man inside the Beast—but the man himself.
When Alix Miller takes off for a remote spot in New Hampshire to paint a portrait of the reclusive aristocrat, Leland Crompton, nothing has prepared her for what s in store. The housekeeper is unnerving. The castle-like house—with its massive chimney, mullioned windows, and ironwork gate with wrought-iron roses—gives her chills. And Lee himself is disfigured by a rare, genetic disease.
In the long hours of work that follow, deep in the wintry woods, Alix discovers that beneath Lee s exterior lies a remarkable man, a man she could come to love. The problem lies in convincing Lee.

|Why do some people lead happy successful lives whilst other face repeated failure and sadness? Why do some find their perfect partner whilst others stagger from one broken relationship to the next? What enables some people to have successful careers whilst others find themselves trapped in jobs they detest? And can unlucky people do anything to improve their luck - and lives? Ten years ago, Professor Richard Wiseman decided to search for the elusive luck factor by investigating the actual beliefs and experiences of lucky and unlucky people. The results reveal a radical new way of looking at luck. In this book, Wiseman identifies the four simple behavioural techniques that have been scientifically proven to help you attract good fortune. He then shows how you can use these methods to revolutionise every area of your life - including your relationships, personal finances and career.|

|This edition draws upon recent findings of sociological research about a rapidly changing society, upon both classical and contemporary theoretical debates and upon public controversies over social policy in fields ranging from the health service to the future of industry. The book begins with an assessment of sociology as a discipline, which is then set against the background of the history of global development and of contemporary divisions in the world, especially the Third World. Successive chapters introduce the reader to the special problems involved in researching society: the issues of sex, gender and the family, especially those raised by the women s movement, changing patterns of health and illness and of medical therapy, the explosive growth of the world s cities and changes in community life, the transformations of industry and of the nature of work in an epoch of mass unemployment, ethnic and racial conflicts both at world level and within our own society, the persistence of social order despite deep inequalities, and the many ways in which people deviate from respectable models of behaviour. The book ends with an overview of the main varieties of sociological theory.|

|Indian Summer is a collection of 26 full-color photographs, paired with the views of eight Native American authors. To these authors, the land is sacred. Standing Bear speaks for many Americans when he says, "From Wakan Tanka there came a great unifying life force that flowed in and through all things .... Thus all things were kindred and brought together by the same Great Mystery." The authors stress the importance of loving and respecting the land. They show us how such respect can benefit all peoples.|
The photographs by Betsy Wyckoff in Indian Summer represent more than 30 years of photographing nature throughout the United States. They have appeared in gallery exhibitions, as cover and internal art in various publications, and are owned by numerous private collectors.
