            Tense, atmospheric, and gorgeously written, The Summer Country is a novel to savor! - Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Huntress and The Alice Network A brilliant, multigenerational saga in the tradition of The Thorn Birds and North and South, New York Times be...stselling historical novelist Lauren Willig delivers her biggest, boldest, and most ambitious novel yet-a sweeping Victorian epic of lost love, lies, jealousy, and rebellion set in colonial Barbados. Barbados, 1854: Emily Dawson has always been the poor cousin in a prosperous English merchant clan- merely a vicar's daughter, and a reform-minded vicar's daughter, at that. Everyone knows that the family's lucrative shipping business will go to her cousin, Adam, one day. But when her grandfather dies, Emily receives an unexpected inheritance: Peverills, a sugar plantation in Barbados-a plantation her grandfather never told anyone he owned. When Emily accompanies her cousin and his new wife to Barbados, she finds Peverills a burnt-out shell, reduced to ruins in 1816, when a rising of enslaved people sent the island up in flames. Rumors swirl around the derelict plantation; people whisper of ghosts. Why would her practical-minded grandfather leave her a property in ruins Why are the neighboring plantation owners, the Davenants, so eager to acquire Peverills The answer lies in the past- a tangled history of lies, greed, clandestine love, heartbreaking betrayal, and a bold bid for freedom. THE SUMMER COUNTRY will beguile readers with its rendering of families, heartbreak, and the endurance of hope against all odds.

I am Johannes Verne, and I am not afraid. This was the boy's mantra as he plodded through the desert alone, ...left to die by his vengeful grandfather. Johannes Verne was soon to be rescued by outlaws, but no one could save him from the lasting memory of his grandfather's eyes, full of impenetrable hatred. Raised in part by Indians, then befriended by a mysterious woman, Johannes grew up to become a rugged adventurer and an educated man. But even now, strengthened by the love of a golden-haired girl and well on his way to making a fortune in bustling early-day Los Angeles, the past may rise up to threaten his future once more. And this time only the ancient gods of the desert can save him.

            Could the course and outcome of World War II be changed redundantly? Possibly, since all you need is a professional, experienced time-traveling historical researcher. The task may not be quite that simple, however, so he had better be very, very careful ... The Lebe Technique, a ...secret weapon developed by a theoretical physicist among ODESSA SS exiles fleeing war crimes prosecution in 1960 Argentina, requires endless experimental trials prior to sending an ex-SS officer back to 1939 Berlin along with a full-blown account of actual WWII for use in some unknown way to coach a German victory. Berlin, renamed Welthaupstadt Germania, the capital of Germany's neo-Nazi Empire by Hitler after the Third Reich caps its War of World Liberation by creating numerous foreign provinces, and becoming the seat of Neo-Nazi Germany's Empire. During imperial year 142, dating from 1933 when the vilified Nazi regime was born, veteran time-traveling Professor James Silverthorne of Goebbels Institut, once the University of Colorado in grossly swollen Greater Denver Gauleitung, the capital of Colorado-Provinz, is vetted by Nazi officialdom to undertake a hazardous retro-temporal research junket in millennia-distant European antiq uity. But local counter-dissidence Sicherheitsdienst investigators penetrate an allied revolutionary cell, and arouse suspicion that Silverthorne also members among the patriotic conspirators scheming to overthrow the Neo-Nazi empire, thus forcing his emergency retro-temporal return to the early months of WWII with an assignment to locate, hinder, thwart, or simply eliminate imperial hero of heroes Erich Lustmann, who by some totally unknown means has imitated Nostradamus and is beginning to influence a WWII victory by Nazi Germany. Fearing his mission impossible to find Lustmann in bustling, wartime Berlin is precisely that, Silverthorne pursues his redundant world-changing crusade in an exciting time-travel adventure grand in scope and purpose.
