When your heart makes a wish, even impossible dreams can come true. Viola After years of working for my family´s business, I´m finally back in college and ready to chase my dream of becoming a perfumer. It seems like the stars are all aligning when Chancellor College invites a preeminent French fragrance expert to speak at a symposium. Everything is working out just right, as long as I can continue to ignore my growing feelings for a certain hippie beekeeper. That, it seems, is turning out to be easier said than done. Rayne The elders sent me on a mission to Chancellor to help Alice, owner of the local bagel shop, find true love. So far? Well, not so good. The bees and I have to double up our efforts if we have any hope of helping our girl find the road to happiness. While I know Alice should be my priority one, my heart, however, seems to have a mind of its own. If I could just get Viola Hunter out of my mind, I could focus on my task. That, it seems, is turning out to be easier said than done. The Fairy Godfather is a fractured fairy tale. Enjoy this twisted retelling of the classic Cinderella story. Lose yourself in Poppy Lawless´ enchanting town of Chancellor, a magical place where fairy tales can come true and happily ever afters always reign supreme. The Fairy Godfather is a standalone novella and as part three of The Chancellor Fairy Tales, a series of romantic fairy tales for adults. This novel can be heard on its own, but you´ll get the most enjoyment from this series if the works are listened to in order. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Hollie Jackson.

Für diesen 1460er Pascal Stiefel hat Dr. Martens das berühmte Werk des englischen Künstlers Richard Dadd - The Fairy Fellers Master-Stroke - verwendet, um eine exklusive Kollektion zu kreieren. Dadd war ein Visionär, der wie viele Künstler in seiner Zeit weitgehend unbeachtet geblieben ist. Bekannt wurde er lange nach seinem Tod in den 1960er Jahren, als seine traumhaften Leinwände bei Hippies und Blumenkindern aufhorchen ließen. An seinem The Fairy Fellers Master-Stroke hat er über 9 Jahre lang, während seiner Zeit in der Bethlem Heilanstalt, gearbeitet. Das Gemälde zeigt Charaktere aus Shakespeares Sommernachtstraum und Themen von Romeo und Julia sowie viele, viele überlagerte Figuren und Bilder, Mysterien und Geheimnisse. Das Gemälde blieb unvollendet und ist es bis heute, als Dadd aus Bethlem verlegt wurde.

When everything sucks,change everything...and that´s exactly what Hannah Friedman set out to do in an ambitious attempt to bust out of a life of obscurity and absurdity and into an alternate world of glamour, wealth, and popularity.Being dubbed ´´That Monkey Girl´´ by middle-school bullies and being pulled out of sixth grade to live on a tour bus with her agoraphobic mother, her smelly little brother, and her father´s hippie bandmates convinces Hannah that she is destined for a life of freakdom. But when she enters one of the country´s most prestigious boarding schools on scholarship, Hannah transforms herself into everything she is not: cool. By senior year, she has a perfect millionaire boyfriend, a perfect GPA, a perfect designer wardrobe, and is part of the most popular clique in school, but somehow everything begins to suck far worse than when she first started. Her newfound costly drug habit, eating disorder, identity crisis, and Queen-Bee attitude lead to the unraveling of Hannah´s very unusual life.Putting her life back together will take more than a few clicks of her heels, or the perfect fit of a glass slipper, in this not-so-fairy tale of going from rock bottom to head of the class and back again. 1.

This audiobook includes an exclusive interview between the author, Sally Bayley, and a mentee of Sally’s, Georgie Newson, who first met when they read Jane Eyre together. They talk about the stories that have been woven into the book, the reflective nature of literature, the influence of Jane Eyre on their lives and much more. Sally grew up in a dilapidated house by the sea where men were forbidden, her childhood world filled with mystery and intrigue. Hippies trailed through the kitchen looking for God - their leader was Aunt Di, who ruled the house with charismatic force. When Sally’s baby brother vanished from his pram, she became suspicious of the activities going on around her. What happened to Baby David and the woman called Poor Sue? And where did all the people singing and wailing prayers in the front room suddenly go? Disappearing into a world of books and reading, Sally adopts the tried and tested methods of Miss Marple. Taking books for hints and clues, she turns herself into a reading detective. Her discovery of Jane Eyre marks the beginning of a vivid journey through Victorian literature, where she also finds the kind, eccentric figure of Charles Dickens’ Betsey Trotwood. These characters soon become her heroines, acting as a part of an alternative family, offering humour and guidance during many difficult moments in Sally’s life. Combining the voices of literary characters with those of her real-life counterparts, Girl with Dove reads as a magical series of strange encounters, climaxing with a comic performance of Shakespeare in the children’s home where Sally is eventually sent. Weaving literary classics with a young girl’s coming of age story, this is a book that testifies to the transformative power of reading and the literary imagination. Mixing fairy tale, literary classics, nursery rhymes and folklore, it is the story of a child’s adventure in wonderland and search fo... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sally Bayley.
