Between 1941 and 1943 Wynne Brooks waited for her youmg soldier husband to return to her. In all the time he was away, she wrote to him, first daily, then weekly, never knowing his whereabouts. In 1943, at the end of the war, her letters were returned, her letters of comfort and love unread, bearing the War Office stamp "no trace."
This is an exquisite, true-life account of an exceptional love that knows no boundaries of time and place.

Eddie is a grizzled war veteran who feels trapped in a meaningless life of fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. As the park has changed over the years - so has Eddie changed, from optimistic youth to embittered old age. Then, on his 83rd birthday, Eddie dies in a tragic accident, trying to save a little girl from a falling cart. He awakens in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a lush Garden of Eden, but a place where your earthly life is explained to you by five people wwho were in it. These people may have been loved ones or distant stangers. Yet each of them changed your path forever. A sweet, entertaining and wise book. It certainly held my attention throughout.

Meet Harry Flashman - in the wildly funny and historically accurate cult classic that introduced us to history's greatest adventurer, randiest cad, and most incorrigble soundrel.

FLASHMAN follows Flashy as he lies, steals, duels, and wenches his way from 1839 England to Indian, to the wilds of Afghanistan. Along the way, he survives military incompetence, ambushes, torture, venomous snakes, and vengeful women...and emergences against all odd as a bona fide hero of the realm.
