Lottie Bingham is on the run. Hounded by the press and paparazzi, she flees her home, her job, her family and friends and runs to the anonymity of life in a lodge house on a remote estate in the North Yorkshire moors, wanting only to lick her wounds and reconnect with her true self. Lullingworth, is the ancestral home of the famous son and heir of the Tippetts Tea dynasty, Oliver Tippetts, who, after suffering a tragic loss has become a recluse. Oliver returns to Lullingworth to run the estate but cannot bring himself to enter the grand house that was once his family home. Instead, holed up at the gate house, he closes out the world and is lost in grief. On exploring her new home, Lottie discovers a tin of fascinating letters in the attic. Written by the mysterious Grace, they reveal astounding family secrets, long buried and forgotten, that when discovered by Lottie, have the potential to completely change hers and Oliver’s lives. These letters contain with them not only the answers to so many questions about the Tippetts family but also vital lessons in the art of grace. Can Lottie and Oliver come to terms with their own grief and reveal the truth to one another about who they really are, or will their secrets overwhelm them and destroy everything they hold dear?

Description :


The little island of Candlewick lies somewhere off the coast of England. It has a castle, rolling hills (well, one rolling hill), lots of heather, seagulls, some rather interesting rocks, a work-in-progress chalk picture on the hillside, and, of course, beaches. Perfect, so Reginald and Blodwyn Winterbottom think for a spot of camping.With unremitting cheerfulness the couple cope with the eccentricities of the island inhabitants. These include the amorous ninety-year-old Baron with his penchant for naturism, Hephzibah Fidget the painted lady of the local pub who is intent on adding a new dimension to the term "merry widow," Milligan Shovel, wild-eyed priest of the island who weekly harangues his congregation for their sinful waywardness and who is determined to exorcise the evil spirit he just knows is haunting one of his parishioners and whom he is convinced has it in for him, and Hieronymus Hubbard, secretary to His Lordship whose job is to track down an heir to the baronetcy as soon as possible.In the face of some indifference and a great deal of outright hostility, the ghost, what appear to be vampires, and quite possibly a lost Yeti, it would seem that any hopes the Winterbottom's may have of enjoying a peaceful holiday are doomed.

Description :


On 18 April 1947, British forces set off the largest non-nuclear explosion in history. The target was a small island in the North Sea, fifty miles off the German coast, which for generations had stood as a symbol of Anglo-German conflict: Heligoland. A long tradition of rivalry was to come to an end here, in the ruins of Hitler's island fortress. Pressed as to why it was not prepared to give Heligoland back, the British government declared that the island represented everything that was wrong with the Germans: "If any tradition was worthbreaking, and if any sentiment was worth changing, then the German sentiment about Heligoland was such a one". Drawing on a wide range of archival material, Jan Ruger explores how Britain and Germany have collided and collaborated in this North Sea enclave. For much of the nineteenth century, this was Britain's smallest colony, an inconvenient and notoriously discontented outpost at the edge of Europe.Situated at the fault line between imperial and national histories, the island became a metaphor for Anglo-German rivalry once Germany had acquired it in 1890. Turned into a naval stronghold under the Kaiser and again under Hitler, it was fought over in both world wars. Heavy bombardment by theAllies reduced it to ruins, until the Royal Navy re-took it in May 1945. Returned to West Germany in 1952, it became a showpiece of reconciliation, but one that continues to wear the scars of the twentieth century.Tracing this rich history of contact and conflict from the Napoleonic Wars to the Cold War, Heligoland brings to life a fascinating microcosm of the Anglo-German relationship. For generations this cliff-bound island expressed a German will to bully and battle Britain; and it mirrored a Britishdetermination to prevent Germany from establishing hegemony on the Continent. Caught in between were the Heligolanders and those involved with them: spies and smugglers, poets and painters, sailors and soldiers. Far more than just the history of a small island in the North Sea, this is the compelling story of a relationship which has defined modern Europe.
