A Raggedy Ann For Georgi Anna, is the story of one young woman and her family who decide to leave their Amish community in Pennsylvania and move to Illinois and to a much smaller farm. The entire family enjoys meeting others in the community but Naomi also makes friends with a non-Amish woman and her little daughter, who has bright golden curls. She doesn´t know why she becomes strongly attached to the pair, but then she also meets a young man who will also be a major part of her own future.

Georgie has brought up Huw all by herself. She has nurtured him, loved him, cried with him, and spent sleepless nights worrying about him.

Georgie´s got a new boyfriend - a handsome doctor - and her work as a stylist is taking off. Huw is doing well in school and doesn´t mention his father. Georgie has never been happier. Then, one day, out of the blue, 10 years after he left, Huw´s father, David, turns up. He wants his son and will stop at nothing to get him.

Lots of them.´´ (The Richmond magazine) ´´Kervin´s writing is shamelessly and explosively hilarious.´´ (Daily Mail) ´´Funny, touching and moving.´´ (Cosmopolitan) 1. Language: English.

Lady Georgiana Rannoch knows nothing is simple when you´re thirty-fifth in line for the British crown, but her upcoming marriage proves to be the ultimate complication in the tenth mystery in the New York Times bestselling Royal Spyness series. As Lady Georgiana´s beloved Darcy drives her out of London, she soon discovers that he isn´t planning to introduce her to the pleasures of sinning in secret-as she had hoped-but to make her his wife! Of course, she´ll need special permission from the king to marry a Roman Catholic. Though he will inherit a title, Darcy is as broke as Georgie. Even his family´s Irish castle has been sold to a rich American who now employs his father. Nothing will deter them from their mission-except perhaps the news that Georgie´s future father-in-law has just been arrested for murdering the rich American. With the elopement postponed, they head for Ireland, where the suspect insists he´s innocent, and it´s up to them to prove it-for better or worse.
Linaria is a world where dragons are revered as gods, where airships rule the skies, and where war is stirring. For Moroda, a former Goldstone, her life of luxury ends following her father´s sudden death. When her city is destroyed by a dragon, she and her sister ally with a sky pirate and narrowly escape the carnage - only to find a vigilante from an exiled race has left a trail of destruction everywhere his growing army has traveled.

Woody Creek is gearing up for its centenary celebrations - but for many of its townspeople, it´s just another reminder of the old days, when life was more simple, before so-called progress, technology and a growing population roared through the town, altering everything in its wake. Not for Georgie, though. Long encumbered by responsibility for her half-sister, Margot, she´s looking towards the future and more changes. Not having managed to move on from running Charlie´s grocery store yet, as the clock ticks over to 1970, she´s determined that the time has come. She´s not the only one of Jenny´s children who´s grown up and is moving on. As a six-year-old, little Jimmy Morrison was stolen from Woody Creek by his grandfather, and is now farther away than ever from his estranged birth mother and sisters. Having inherited an estate in the United Kingdom, he´s determined to make a new life for himself. If only he could shake off his one terrible attachment to Australia.... For Cara, Woody Creek has been the source of the most devastating news of her life, and a terrible mistake that cannot be undone. She´s vowed never to step foot into the place again. But the old timber town has a way of getting under people´s skins. And as it draws the much-loved cast of Woody Creek characters back into its grip, confessions, discoveries and truths seem set to explode in the most dramatic of showdowns.... 1. Language: English.
