It's been four years since Rudy's brother Edgar went missing in war-torn France. Still deep in mourning and grappling with unanswered questions, Rudy and his mother struggle to move on.

Captivated by Mariette, Rudy finds that their mutual loss and grief bind them...as does the possibility of new love. But Mariette's revelations bring more questions than answers about Edgar's death.

In his search, Rudy is forced to confront the tragedies of war and the realities of the brother he's lost and the woman he's found. Will the truth set him free to find peace, or will it forever shadow his future?

For some people in post-World War II Germany, the battle is not over. August 1945. As Stefano, an Italian POW, heads toward home across war-ravaged Germany, he encounters a young child beside his dead mother. Unable to leave him to an unknown fate, Stefano takes the boy with him, finding refuge in a seemingly abandoned house in a secluded woodland. But the house is far from vacant. Stefano wakes at the arrival of its owner, Erich, a former German soldier, who invites the travelers to stay until they can find safe passage home. Stefano cautiously agrees, intrigued by the disarming German, his reclusive neighbor Rosalind, and her traumatized husband, Georg. Stefano is also drawn to Monique, the girl in a photograph on Rosalind's wall, who went missing during the war. But when he discovers letters written by Monique, a darker truth emerges. This place of refuge could be one of reckoning, and the secrets of the past might prevent the travelers from ever getting home.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

A stimulating exploration of wandering, being lost, and the uses of the unknown from the author of Men Explain Things To Me Written as a series of autobiographical essays, A Field Guide to Getting Lost draws on emblematic moments and relationships in Rebecca Solnit's life to explore issues of uncertainty, trust, loss, memory, desire, and place. Solnit is interested in the stories we use to navigate our way through the world, and the places we traverse, from wilderness to cities, in finding ourselves, or losing ourselves. While deeply personal, her own stories link up to larger stories, from captivity narratives of early Americans to the use of the color blue in Renaissance painting, not to mention encounters with tortoises, monks, punk rockers, mountains, deserts, and the movie Vertigo. The result is a distinctive, stimulating voyage of discovery. From the Trade Paperback edition.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

"Have the Montenegrins not made enormous sacrifices to preserve their independence?" Rebecca West asked while traveling through the Balkans on the eve of World War II. "Greater than you can believe," her Serbian companion answered. "They have sacrificed almost everything except their heroism ... They are as like the people of Homer as any race now living: they are brave, and beautiful, and vainglorious." My grandfather prized his Montenegrin origins above almost all else, reveling in the lore of ruggedness and liberty. Yet he had not been back to his ancestral homeland in thirty years. I wanted to take him there, for one last time, before it was too late for us to get to know each other. A half-century chasm stretched between us. Grandad lived in Kansas. I shared a house with five random twenty-somethings in Berkeley, California. He was a World War II veteran who knew things like how many platoons constitute a battalion. I knew what to bring to a vegetarian potluck. His generation had been dubbed The Greatest while mine had been marked with the letter X. I wanted to know whether our kinship had any power to transcend that gulf. Above that question loomed another. Grandad was a proud, insistent patriot. I was a hesitant one, and the "War on Terror" had amplified my doubt. Nine months before our journey, the September 11 attacks had ignited a blaze of American nationalism that was leading toward a war I opposed and he seemed to welcome. Nationalism had surged through Yugoslavia during the previous decade, and torn the country to shreds. So the question I most wanted to answer was whether the pride and meaning Grandad derived from his tribal and national allegiances merited any place in my life, too. Our journey had more in store for us. Seeking friendship, we discovered lost relatives--and family secrets. Traveling through Montenegro and Serbia, we collided with uncomfortable insights about our own country. Moving through a landscape marked by NATO's 1999 bombing campaign as well as the after-effects of September 11, 2001--including, though it was under-appreciated at the time, the resurgence of ethno-nationalist politics on a global scale--we got a worm's-eye view of some the most daunting problems and paradoxes that have haunted this century so far. Lessons in the limits and legacy of American military intervention, even one that had spurred more self-congratulation than regret, trailed my every step. Conspiracy theories and suspicious cynicism--the spoils of Serbia's defeat and tragic impediments to its revival--stood between me and every friendship I attempted to make. And the potent power of tribe--unifying, elevating, divisive, menacing, and indelible--hung inescapably over the two friendships I tried hardest to deepen.

The Blue-Green Algae attempts to assemble a unified picture of blue-green algae as living organisms. It describes the organismโ€™s general features of form and structure, cellular organization, cell biology, gas vacuoles, and movements. The book addresses the culture, nutrition, growth, photosynthesis, chemosynthesis, heterotrophy, respiration, nitrogen metabolism, differentiation, reproduction, and life cycles of the blue-green algae. The organismsโ€™ freshwater and terrestrial ecology, pathogens, symbiosis, evolution, and phylogeny are also explained. These organisms form a substantial fraction of the biomass in several important types of habitat. Consequently, it is desirable to understand their activities if natural resources are to be conserved and used to best advantage. This book will be useful to students and research workers in this field of interest.

The existence of blue straggler stars, which appear younger, hotter, and more massive than their siblings, is at odds with a simple picture of stellar evolution. Such stars should have exhausted their nuclear fuel and evolved long ago to become cooling white dwarfs. They are found to exist in globular clusters, open clusters, dwarf spheroidal galaxies of the Local Group, OB associations and as field stars. This book summarises the many advances in observational and theoretical work dedicated to blue straggler stars. Carefully edited extended contributions by well-known experts in the field cover all the relevant aspects of blue straggler stars research: Observations of blue straggler stars in their various environments; Binary stars and formation channels; Dynamics of globular clusters; Interpretation of observational data and comparison with models. The book also offers an introductory chapter on stellar evolution written by the editors of the book.
