It's Queen Georgiana's silver jubilee, and Alice-Miranda and her friends are invited. While Evesbury Palace is every bit as magnificent as they'd imagined, some of the staff are behaving strangely. Edgar and Louis, Aunty Gee's grandsons and the palace's resident mischief-makers, don't exactly give their guests a friendly welcome. When they team up with an unexpected visitor, things soon go from bad to worse. Behind the scenes it seems something much more sinister is at play. Why is Aunty Gee so determined to keep Alice-Miranda at the palace for the rest of the holidays? And who is her mysterious milliner? With the help of her friends and a trusty butler, can Alice-Miranda uncover what threatens to bring down the royal family?

She is alone and homeless, he is wealthy and powerful – why is he desperate to erase their past? When Alice arrives home from the school run with her two children to find herself locked out of her apartment, she doesn’t realise at first that she is also locked out of her life. The man she loves is in line for the top job in the country, and a secret mistress and two daughters are not part of the plan. Alice finds herself plunged into a situation that is alien to her and for which she is completely unprepared. Forced to accept the hospitality of her streetwise neighbour Cassandra, she is introduced to Nicola, a social worker, and Eliza and Hugo, a couple with their own sad past, who take vulnerable women into their home and help them to get their lives together. Together they set about getting Alice and her girls what is their due. However, they haven’t reckoned on doing battle with a complicated legal system, organised crime, even death threats. With such powerful forces ranged against them, can there be any justice for Alice?

Marian Smith recaptures a rich period in French musical theater when ballet and opera were intimately connected. Focusing on the age of Giselle at the Paris Opéra (from the 1830s through the 1840s), Smith offers an unprecedented look at the structural and thematic relationship between the two genres. She argues that a deeper understanding of both ballet and opera--and of nineteenth-century theater-going culture in general--may be gained by examining them within the same framework instead of following the usual practice of telling their histories separately. This handsomely illustrated book ultimately provides a new portrait of the Opéra during a period long celebrated for its box-office successes in both genres. Smith begins by showing how gestures were encoded in the musical language that composers used in ballet and in opera. She moves on to a wide range of topics, including the relationship between the gestures of the singers and the movements of the dancers, and the distinction between dance that represents dancing (entertainment staged within the story of the opera) and dance that represents action. Smith maintains that ballet-pantomime and opera continued to rely on each other well into the nineteenth century, even as they thrived independently. The "divorce" between the two arts occurred little by little, and may be traced through unlikely sources: controversies in the press about the changing nature of ballet-pantomime music, shifting ideas about originality, complaints about the ridiculousness of pantomime, and a little-known rehearsal score for Giselle.

In the Silent Era, film reissues were a battle between rival studios—every Mary Pickford new release in 1914 was met with a Pickford re-release. For 50 years after the Silent Era, reissues were a battle between the studios, who considered old movies “found money,” and cinema owners, who often saw audiences reject former box office hits. In the mid–1960s, the return of The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957)—the second biggest reissue of all time—altered industry perceptions, and James Bond double features pushed the revival market to new heights. In the digital age, reissues have continued to confound the critics. This is the untold hundred-year story of how old movies saved new Hollywood. Covering the booms and busts of a recycling business that became its own industry, the author describes how the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Humphrey Bogart and Alfred Hitchcock won over new generations of audiences, and explores the lasting appeal of films like Napoléon (1927), Gone with the Wind (1939), The Rocky Horror Show (1975) and Blade Runner (1982).
