Lorain has been a prisoner of her secrets for almost her entire life. At the age of 13 she managed to keep her pregnancy a secret, discarding the infant and leaving it for dead. Years later, Lorain´s mother finally met the love of her life, and Lorain couldn´t find the courage to tell her mother that her new beau was the man who had molested Lorain and impregnated her. To complicate matters even more, Lorain discovered that the baby she´d abandoned all those years ago survived, and God has now placed Lorain in her adult child´s life. It seems like the legacy of secrets has been passed on, too, as Lorain helps her daughter conceal the true details behind one of her own pregnancies. Lorain has managed to maneuver the secrets and lies like pieces in a strategic game of chess, and is now living the lavish, fairy-tale life of a doctor´s wife. But even that is a lie. With the rug about to be pulled out from underneath Lorain by the woman who raised her abandoned child, all Lorain prays for is that everything ends well. In this cycle of lies, secrets, shame, and guilt, will Lorain get what she prays for? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sharell Palmer Schwarzer.

Deftly written and emotionally powerful, Drowning Ruth is a stunning portrait of the ties that bind sisters together and the forces that tear them apart, of the dangers of keeping secrets and the explosive repercussions when they are exposed. A mesmerizing and achingly beautiful debut. Winter, 1919. Amanda Starkey spends her days nursing soldiers wounded in the Great War. Finding herself suddenly overwhelmed, she flees Milwaukee and retreats to her family´s farm on Nagawaukee Lake, seeking comfort with her younger sister, Mathilda, and three-year-old niece, Ruth. But very soon, Amanda comes to see that her old home is no refuge - she has carried her troubles with her. On one terrible night almost a year later, Amanda loses nearly everything that is dearest to her when her sister mysteriously disappears and is later found drowned beneath the ice that covers the lake. When Mathilda´s husband comes home from the war, wounded and troubled himself, he finds that Amanda has taken charge of Ruth and the farm, assuming her responsibility with a frightening intensity. Wry and guarded, Amanda tells the story of her family in careful doses, as anxious to hide from herself as from us the secrets of her own past and of that night. Ruth, haunted by her own memory of that fateful night, grows up under the watchful eye of her prickly and possessive aunt and gradually becomes aware of the odd events of her childhood. As she tells her own story with increasing clarity, she reveals the mounting toll that her aunt´s secrets exact from her family and everyone around her, until the heartrending truth is uncovered. Guiding us through the lives of the Starkey women, Christina Schwarz´s first novel shows her compassion and a unique understanding of the American landscape and the people who live in it. 1.

Orders that don’t involve destroyer-racing or courting the love of his life, Ela.

To warn the people of ToronSea against turning their backs on the Infinite to worship a new goddess. ´´Tell them I see they are beguiled. Tell them I seek their hearts. The wise will hear Me.´´ But why Kien? Isn’t this the role of a true prophet, such as Ela of Parne? Seeking answers, Kien visits Ela and finds her stricken by a devastating vision of her own.
