It all started with the bereavement flowers with my name on them.Not the best way to wake up, right? I work in a flower shop. I know a funeral arrangement when I see one.I know a killer when I see one, too. And one is standing in my hospital room right now, straight behind the man who saved my life.I can’t tell anyone the truth, because that’s the fastest way to really die. So I do the next best thing. I “lose” my memory. I fake my amnesia.Pretending not to remember a brutal attempted murder has its perks. The killer is backing down, spending less time around me, loosening the noose.The less I claim to recall, the more my rescuer, Duff, works to help me “remember”. I hate lying to him.But he doesn’t understand that my memory is dangerous. To me. And to him.Fooling everyone isn’t easy. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.Except it’s starting to look like I’ve been fooling myself.In more ways than one.Read Book 1 in the newest series from USA Today best-selling author Meli Raine.“...intrigue and dark humor on display in this thriller....”While the immediate - and more compelling - tension in Raine’s (A Shameless Little Bet, 2018, etc.) heart-pumping series opener comes from Lily’s constant proximity to her would-be killer, the action takes place against a backdrop of secret government scandals.Fortunately, Lily’s voice is captivating, wry, and tough enough to sell this thriller. The novel ends with a cliffhanger that startles, if only because readers will have become so attached to Lily. (Kirkus Reviews)Praise for Meli Raine’s books:“Fresh, riveting, and thrumming with emotion and romantic suspense, False Memory is absolutely unputdownable. You need this book!” (New York Times best-selling author Meghan March)“I accidentally lost a day to this trilogy! It is unputdownable. Apparently 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andi Arndt.

How exactly were books printed in the Middle Ages, before the age of printing? As Thomas Cahill's book, How the Irish Saved Civilization, dramatically demonstrates that without the medieval Irish monks' devotion to transcription, much of the knowledge of Western civilization would have been lost forever. At that time, the author was often his own scribe and almost invariably his own editor and publisher. In the age of manuscript culture, every copy of every book had to be copied by hand and so every copy was physically unique. Peter J. Lucas explores what is known about the medieval publishing process by close study of the work of friar John Capgrave (1393-1464), a prolific author and one of the most learned Englishmen of his day. What distinguishes Capgrave from other medieval English authors is the wealth of manuscript evidence from the author's scriptorium. Lucas focuses on how works newly composed by an author were prepared in a form suitable for patrons and readers. Capgrave's linguistic and scribal usages are set in the socio-historical context of the fifteenth century, and related to the growth and development of English literary patronage in the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance. Lucas, who teaches Old and Middle English at University College, Dublin, was awarded the Gordon Duff Prize by Oxford University for his work on Capgrave.

The Pursuit of Italy

The book that explains the whole extraordinary course of Italian history like no other in English The Pursuit of Italy traces the whole history of the Italian peninsula in a wonderfully readable style, full of well-chosen stories and observations from personal experience, and peopled by many of the great figures of the Italian past, from Cicero and Virgil to Dante and the Medici, from Cavour and Verdi to the controversial political figures of the twentieth century. The book gives a clear-eyed view of the Risorgimento, the pivotal event in modern Italian history, debunking the influential myths which have grown up around it. Gilmour shows that the glory of Italy has always lain in its regions, with their distinctive art, civic cultures, identities and cuisine and whose inhabitants identified themselves not as Italians, but as Tuscans and Venetians, Sicilians and Lombards, Neapolitans and Genoese. This is where the strength and culture of Italy still comes from, rather than from misconceived and mishandled concepts of nationalism and unity. This wise and enormously engaging book explains the course of Italian history in a manner and with a coherence which no one with an interest in the country could fail to enjoy. David Gilmour is one of Britain's most admired and accomplished historical writers and biographers. His previous books include The Last Leopard : A Life of Giuseppe di Lampedusa (winner of the Marsh Biography Award) Curzon (Duff Cooper Prize) and Long Recessional:The Imperial Life of Rudyard Kipling (Elizabeth Longford Prize for Historical Biography).
