The news reports were nonstop now, and for the rest of the world, this must have seemed like they were witnessing a made-for-television drama. One news anchor person said it like this: In an unprecedented chain of events, tonight the Bethany family has been decimated. In three separate but tragic accidents, Jo and Eva Bethany have lost their four children in one night. After all this family has endured over the past year, you would think that they have had their run of bad luck. But it seems that this is not the case. Remember the scandal involving George, the youngest Bethany, with the allegations of homosexuality-That cost him a lucrative baseball career. Then there was the allegation of an extramarital affair by the older brother James. That too turned out to be bogus. We also all remember the blockbuster trial of the decade in which Destiny Bethany-Lorber was found guilty only to be vindicated in open court at her sentencing. For years, this reporter thought the Bethany family was truly blessed. I now believe that they are the modern-day version of the Kennedys. This family must be cursed! How else would you explain this bizarre chain of events? Mmmmm. Thats my commentary, and thats the news for tonight. We know you have a lot of choices. . . Thank you for watching Firsthand Account News. Good night.

When Creon refuses to bury the body of Antigone's unruly brother, Antigone's anger quickly turns to defiance. Creon condemns her to a torturous death: she's to be buried alive. Acclaimed playwright Roy Williams takes Sophocles' play and, by placing it into a contemporary setting, brings this classic tale vividly to life. A timeless story about loyalty and truth, about how we make meaning out of life and death, and what in the end really does matter. Roy Williams's adaptation of Antigone received its world premiere on 19 September at Derby Theatre, in a co-production between Pilot Theatre, Derby Theatre and Theatre Royal, Stratford East, before going on a national tour.

Millions of readers worldwide are talking about the Dordogne Mysteries. Find out why and discover what dark secrets lurk in the idyllic French town of St Denis in the first book in this acclaimed series. 'Hugely enjoyable and absolutely gripping. Martin Walker has got off to a flying start' Antony Beevor Market day in the ancient town of St Denis in south-west France. EU hygiene inspectors have been swooping on France's markets, while the locals hide contraband cheese in their houses and call the Brussels bureaucrats 'Gestapo'. Police Captain Bruno Courreges supports their resistance. Although, here in what was once Vichy France, words like 'Gestapo' and 'resistance' still carry a profound resonance. When an old man, head of an immigrant North African family, is found murdered, suspicion falls on the son of the local doctor, found in flagrante playing sex games surrounded by Nazi paraphernalia. But Bruno isn't convinced, and suspects this crime may have its roots in that most tortured period of recent French history - the Second World War, a time of terror and betrayal that set brother against brother. Now it's up to him to find the killer - but will the people of St Denis allow him to go digging through the past in order to do it?

Galveston Rose tells the story of the end-of-life struggles of Rose Parrish. Confronted with failing health, a growing feeling of uselessness, and a longing to belong, Rose creates an unusual "family" out of the disparate people who come into her life after a bout with pneumonia. The "Captain," is her longtime friend and financial advisor but is not quite the respectable citizen their Galveston community believes. Medical student Jessie Martin first encounters Rose on a trip to the emergency room, when he is only pretending to be a doctor. He subsequently rents an apartment in Rose's mansion, and eyebrows are raised. Dooley Thomas is searching for his own family while conducting rescue experiments with dolphins stranded off the coast of Galveston Island. Rose influences these and a host of other characters with her unique personality: alternately bossy and kindly, but always smart, funny, and generous. The "Captain," Jessie, Dooley, and the others all find ways to be reconciled with their lives, with Rose somehow at the center. As Rose enchants her newly-created family, her decisions are tempered by a new-found interest, the development of a high-end nightclub in what is reputed to be pirate Jean Lafitte's Galveston home. Together, Rose and the "Captain" devotedly recreate the bygone elegance of Galveston's glory days, and the party to celebrate the grand opening of Maison Rouge is a meteoric, if not meteorological, success.

Acclaimed author of the story collection Kick in the Head Steven Rinehart’s debut novel is filled to the brim with his characteristic wry humor, unflinching truth, and raw emotional power. Built in a Day is the story of an over-educated underachiever whose oath to clean up his act is put to the ultimate test when the world around him crumbles into a state of disrepair. Left in charge of his late wife’s son and a sultry 15-year-old pregnant orphan named Jule, 32-year-old Andrew Bergman has to find the will and strength to rise to the absurd challenge of becoming a stepfather and -grandfather in the course of a few short months. Darkly hysterical and deeply stirring, Built in a Day is an affecting examination of love, responsibility, and the resilience it takes to pick up the pieces.

Featuring close readings of selected poetry, visual texts, short stories and novels published for children since 1945 from Naughty Amelia Jane to Watership Down, this is the first extensive study of the nature and form of ethical discourse in British children's literature. Ethics in British Children's Literature explores the extent to which contemporary writing for children might be considered philosophical, tackling ethical spheres relevant to and arising from books for young people, such as naughtiness, good and evil, family life, and environmental ethics. Rigorously engaging with influential moral philosophers, from Aristotle through Kant and Hegel, to Arno Leopold, Iris Murdoch, Mary Midgley, and Lars Svendsen, this book demonstrates the narrative strategies employed to engage young readers as moral agents.

When her parents were murdered, Hannah Keller was 3,000 miles away, on leave from her job with the Miami Police Department. Her family's only survivor on that deadly day was Hannah's six-year-old son Randall. While fishing on the dock behind his grandparents' house, the boy glimpsed the killers, and later discovered his grandparents' bullet-riddled bodies. Five years later the trauma of that day still haunts the boy. He lives in terror that the killers will return for him. Hannah is no longer a cop but now works full time as a novelist, and is trying to do whatever she can to heal her son's wounds. But when she receives a coded message apparently from her parents' killers, the entire episode explodes again. Teaming up with a maverick FBI agent from the Miami field office, Hannah begins to track the killer. As she moves deeper into the labyrinth, she discovers, to her horror, that she and her son are being used as pawns in an elaborate scheme--a trap designed to catch one of the world's deadliest assassins. Hannah and Randall become entangled in a bitter feud, a burning vendetta, and the mind of a bloodthirsty professional killer. In Rough Draft, his most exciting Thorn novel yet, James W. Hall brings events to a breathtaking conclusion.
