Anthony Adverse, Volume Two, the Other Bronze Boy

Anthony Adverse, Volume Two, the Other Bronze Boy

"What a project, and what a book! A work that took four years to write and yet bears the stamp of gusto from the first page to last. A full-bodied tale of birth and death, of love and hate, of fighting, mating, scheming, drifting-of overbearing lords and ancient gentlemen, simpering dames, passionate women of several colors, murder, rapine, revenge, long voyages, desperate encounters. . . . A full adventurous romance, rich in action, heightened by poetic glamor." - Harry Hansen in The New York World-Telegram. The tale moves swiftly through the latter years of the Eighteenth and the early decades of the Nineteenth Centuries to delve deep amid the roots of the modern era. Anthony Adverse - begotten in France, born in the Alps, raised in Italy and flung by fortune to the West Indies, Africa, and finally to America-unlocks with the key of action the diverting experiences of his journey in body and thought from one hemisphere to another. Filled with memorable events, with affairs of the heart, the purse, and the mind in many lands and famous cities, this huge novel with hundreds of colorful people is interesting every step of the way. It has gusto, wise humor, beauty, and pathos. "Anthony Adverse will lay hold upon a vast multitude of readers and grip them fast by its fascinations. For it is a living book; if vibrates; it sings itself into the very marrow of the bones."- Paul Jordan Smith in The Los Angeles Times.

Adam Bede

Adam Bede

Adam Bede, novel written by George Eliot, published in three volumes in 1859. The title character, a carpenter, is in love with an unmarried woman who bears a child by another man. Although Bede tries to help her, he eventually loses her but finds happiness with someone else. Adam Bede was Eliot’s first long novel. She described the work as “a country story—full of the breath of cows and the scent of hay.” Its masterly realism—evident, for example, in the recording of Derbyshire dialect—brought to English fiction the same truthful observation of minute detail that John Ruskin had commended in the paintings of the Pre-Raphaelites. But what was new in this work of English fiction was the combination of deep human sympathy and rigorous moral judgment. Awake, my soul, and with the sun Thy daily stage of duty run; Shake off dull sloth... Here some measurement was to be taken which required more concentrated attention, and the sonorous voice subsided into a low whistle; but it presently broke out again with renewed vigour — Let all thy converse be sincere, Thy conscience as the noonday clear. Such a voice could only come from a broad chest, and the broad chest belonged to a large-boned, muscular man nearly six feet high, with a back so flat and a head so well poised that when he drew himself up to take a more distant survey of his work, he had the air of a soldier standing at ease. The sleeve rolled up above the elbow showed an arm that was likely to win the prize for feats of strength; yet the long supple hand, with its broad finger-tips, looked ready for works of skill. In his tall stalwartness Adam Bede was a Saxon, and justified his name; but the jet-black hair, made the more noticeable by its contrast with the light paper cap, and the keen glance of the dark eyes that shone from under strongly marked, prominent and mobile eyebrows, indicated a mixture of Celtic blood. The face was large and roughly hewn, and when in repose had no other beauty than such as belongs ...

What would you do for revenge? To what lengths would you go? Would you destroy the man you loved or would you let him destroy you? La Ville des Dieux-The city of the gods. It isn't. It is a city full of evil, demons and devils that prey upon the weak, the vulnerable, the pitiless and the poor. Mortal men who call themselves gods own the city, control the lives of all who live within its vast borders. Yet they aren't gods-just men with the faces of angels and godlike bearings. And they share the weaknesses of all men-their sins, their lusts, their desires...and Selena knows this with a certainty. Sixteen years ago, the most beautiful of all the gods took her innocence and in doing so, he destroyed her soul. She has never forgiven him, and on the anniversary of that night, she sets out to remind him that some sins can never be forgiven, that some sins can only be atoned for with the sacrifice of blood. Adonis-The most beautiful of all the gods. He bears the face of an angel, and with a simple touch, a single look, he can inflame the passions of both women and men. Some say his beauty and the desire he ignites with his touch is a gift-others say it is his curse. When he stares into the ravished eyes of his past, he knows this woman who once found pleasure beneath his touch has been equally cursed by it. Sixteen years ago he destroyed the only woman to love him and ripped apart her soul...in order to save her life. No matter the sacrifice or the intent, there are some sins that can never be forgiven.
