"The daughter of Danish missionaries, as a child in the late 1940s the author accompanies her parents to Aden, in Yemen, where they try unsuccessfully to convert Muslims to Christianity. Her outer world becomes a rich riot of vivid sensory experiences as she navigates her new home, but her inner world is just as psychologically rich and complex. As she comes of age she beings to experience her sexuality, a frightening tendency towards depression, and the seeds of compassion which foretell her future life as a doctor and volunteer physician in Cameroon"--Back cover.

Book Excerpt: truth, or your last hour is come! How long were you peeping through the door before you came in?''Peeping, sir?''Yes, peeping; don't repeat my words, but answer me at once, you will find it better for you in the end.''I wasn't peeping, sir, at all.'Sweeney Todd drew a long breath as he then said, in a strange, shrieking sort of manner, which he intended, no doubt, should be jocose, 'Well, well, very well; if you did peep, what then? it's no matter; I only wanted to know, that's all; it was quite a joke, wasn't it--quite funny, though rather odd, eh? Why don't you laugh, you dog? Come, now, there is no harm done. Tell me what you thought about it at once, and we will be merry over it--very merry.'I don't know what you mean, sir, ' said the boy, who was quite as much alarmed at Mr Todd's mirth as he was at his anger. 'I don't know what you mean, sir; I only just come back because I hadn't any money to pay for the biscuits at Peterson's.''I mean nothing at all, ' saRead Mo

"Michele Lowe's radiant new play explores the possibilities that open up in the lives of an array of women as they come into contact with a certain strand of pearls. While the pearls are stolen, bought, bestowed, unstrung and nearly lost, four actresses play 27 characters in this deeply moving drama that is as fresh as it is funny. On the eve of her granddaughter Amy's wedding, Beth asks to see the pearls she gave Amy's mother long ago. When Amy cannot produce them Beth determines to find the pearls. She takes us back to the time when she received them and then gave them to her daughter, who passed them on to her dearest friend Ela who lost them one Sunday morning. Spanning 35 years, the pearls touch the lives of mothers and daughters, sisters and friends, even husbands and wives as they weave a deeply affecting story of love and loss."--Publisher's website.

In Denmark, the railway is a string of pearls. In Europe, the pearls of this necklace are Paris, London, Vienna and Naples. Here, we see six pearls of the Danish railway and quickly find that it is easier to travel since the invention of the train! Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a Danish author, poet and artist. Celebrated for children’s literature, his most cherished fairy tales include "The Emperor's New Clothes", "The Little Mermaid", "The Nightingale", "The Steadfast Tin Soldier", "The Snow Queen", "The Ugly Duckling" and "The Little Match Girl". His books have been translated into every living language, and today there is no child or adult that has not met Andersen's whimsical characters. His fairy tales have been adapted to stage and screen countless times, most notably by Disney with the animated films "The Little Mermaid" in 1989 and "Frozen", which is loosely based on "The Snow Queen", in 2013. Thanks to Andersen's contribution to children's literature, his birth date, April 2, is celebrated as International Children's Book Day.
