Book Excerpt :

A strip club murder has Franki feeling exposed... Private investigator Franki Amato has just turned thirty, and she feels anything but festive. For starters, she can’t have cake because she’s given up sweets, and one of her teeth is torturing her. To add insult to birthday injury, she has to investigate a surreal strip club homicide—with her sixtyish ex-stripper landlady. Then her meddling Sicilian grandma crashes the New Orleans non-party and insists that she steal a lemon to land a husband. Unfortunately for Franki, the man she has in mind has his mind somewhere else, and their relationship seems to have soured. Adding to her troubles, she has to figure out what a missing amber pendant and a mysterious amaretto bottle have to do with the murder, not to mention why she’s being followed. When a second dancer goes down and a third is threatened, Franki turns to a weird witch to crack the case and cancel a curse before someone blows out her candles for good. Amaretto Amber is book 3 in the Franki Amato Mysteries, but it can be read as a standalone.

The Kane brothers fight for their family’s freedom–and survival– as the Kane Legacy trilogy soars to a stunning conclusion. In this gripping final installment of the Kane Legacy series, the Kane family is caught in the midst of the Mexican-American War. And in this time of conflict and fear, their faith and courage are gravely tested. After the tragic battle of Palo Alto and Resaca de la Guerrero, General Zachary Taylor sends Alamo Kane and his brothers Alex and Able home to rest and enjoy a joyous reunion with their family. Soon it becomes clear that–despite hopes for peace–Santa Anna is planning an attack on American soldiers. Alamo and his brothers join General Taylor to head off the threat. With their family back at the ranch in constant worry, the Kane brothers must fight for their freedom. But with Mexican spies infiltrating Texas towns, the brothers are not the only ones in danger. As the Kanes come face-to-face with death, they discover they need far more than bravery on their side. In High Is the Eagle, Al and JoAnna Lacy have created a thrilling final chapter in this amazing historical fiction series marked by faith, love, and courage.

Book Short Summary:

A master of the thriller turns his talent for riveting suspense to the world of business. In this bold novel, John D. MacDonald exposes the backstabbing and betrayals, sordid deeds and savage maneuverings that take place behind closed doors. Introduction by Dean Koontz Floyd Hubbard arrives at a convention at a busy beach-town hotel with a mission from the top brass: ax a long-time manager in the sales team who has been slacking off for too long. Hubbard’s a loyal company man, but his background is engineering, not cold-blooded corporate warfare. Little does Hubbard realize that the first grenade has already been lobbed—and he’s the target. Cory Barlund has heard more than her fair share of odd requests in her years as a high-class call girl, so this one’s right up her alley: pose as a journalist, seduce a visiting executive, and embarrass him in front of his colleagues. But after a night with Hubbard, Cory’s having second thoughts. Hubbard’s a good man. She might be falling for him. And the real hustlers are the ones on the convention floor. Praise for John D. MacDonald “My favorite novelist of all time . . . No price could be placed on the enormous pleasure that his books have given me.”—Dean Koontz “To diggers a thousand years from now, the works of John D. MacDonald would be a treasure on the order of the tomb of Tutankhamen.”—Kurt Vonnegut “John D. MacDonald remains one of my idols.”—Donald Westlake

Book Short Summary:

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this multi-million-copy New York Times bestseller is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control – from the author of The Laws of Human Nature. In the book that People magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum. Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.

Book Short Summary:

Richard Kendall's first book, An Extraordinary Life, is an extraordinary tour-de-force. Richard shares with us in a very personal way his passion for music and politics by taking us on a tour of his meetings with the top stars in opera and the legends of the political world (with a few Hollywood stars - who happened to be opera lovers as well - added to the extraordinary tour). He has a special place in his heart for those individuals among us who can simultaneously create beauty and inspire us, but can also exhibit humility and warmth and generosity of spirit utterly devoid of artifice or phoniness. And Richard, with his own humility and his sheer joie de vivre, as well as his comfort with the art of honest conversation, brings out the warmth and the humor in all he meets. It turns out he is the right person in the right place at the right time! In a particularly engaging chapter, he describes his audition for the Los Angeles Master Chorale in front of Roger Wagner, who had a talent for creating fear and awe among those who aspired to join the Chorale. Richard successfully wowed the master by enjoying himself, having a little fun, and most of all taking the perspective that the audition would be an interesting learning experience. To his shock, Richard had exactly the kind of voice Wagner was looking for. For his opening chapter, Richard selected an apt quote from Marian Anderson, who aspires to a world where we don't see a black singer or a white singer, but only see a colorless soul. From the first to the last chapter of the book, Richard clearly has a "colorless soul" himself, seeing the essential humanity in political figures on the left or on the right, and the real person behind the "celebrity." The most engaging, and touching, chapters in the book have to be his sensitive descriptions of his friendships with his two favorite divas, Lily Pons and Joan Sutherland. Both divas clearly knew a kindred spirit when they met him, and opened up their hearts to Richard. Sutherland invites Richard's mother, who inspired Richard's love of opera and his interest in writing, to keep her company backstage after one of her numerous sold-out shows. And Pons gives Richard a lesson in the proper French pronunciation of Au Revoir, after graciously hosting him and some of his music students at her Palm Springs home. When it comes down to it, Richard has clearly created his own extraordinary luck by being extraordinarily humane.

Book Short Summary:

In Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die, Willie Nelson muses about his greatest influences and the things that are most important to him, and celebrates the family, friends, and colleagues who have blessed his remarkable journey. Willie riffs on everything, from music to poker, Texas to Nashville, and more. He shares the outlaw wisdom he has acquired over the course of eight decades, along with favorite jokes and insights from family, bandmates, and close friends. Rare family pictures, beautiful artwork created by his son, Micah Nelson, and lyrics to classic songs punctuate these charming and poignant memories. A road journal written in Willie Nelson's inimitable, homespun voice and a fitting tribute to America’s greatest traveling bard, Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die—introduced by another favorite son of Texas, Kinky Friedman—is a deeply personal look into the heart and soul of a unique man and one of the greatest artists of our time, a songwriter and performer whose legacy will endure for generations to come.

Book Short Summary:

No weapon platform sank more U-boats in the Second World War than the Allied aircraft. Whether it was an American ’plane operating from American escort carriers, US aircraft from Royal Air Force bases, or British aircraft from bases throughout the world, these officers and men became the most decisive factor in turning the tide of the Battle of the Atlantic against the German submarine threat. While the German crews could threaten escort vessels with torpedoes, or avoid them by remaining submerged, their leaders never developed an effective strategy against aircraft. However, the Allied aircraft did not enjoy much early success. British, Canadian and Australian air crews that fought the U-boats from 1939 until 1941 achieved few triumphs. They possessed neither the aircraft nor the bases necessary to deliver consistent lethal attacks against German submarines. In 1941, the Royal Air Force finally began implementing an effective aircraft response when it initiated training on the American-built Consolidated B-24 Liberators. Supported by other types then in service, these four-engine bombers would prove to be decisive. With America’s entry into the war, the United States Navy and the United States Army Air Forces also began employing Liberators against the U-boats so that by mid-1943, the Admiral Karl Dönitz, commander of U-boat forces, withdrew his submarines from the North Atlantic in recognition of the Allied aircraft’s new dominance. From Dönitz’s retreat to the end of the war, Allied aircraft continued to dominate the U-boat battle as it shifted to other areas including the Bay of Biscay. Dönitz eventually ordered his U-boats to remain on the surface and engage Allied aircraft as opposed to submerging. This approach did lead to the demise of some Allied aircraft, but it also resulted in even more U-boat being sunk. Most critically, Dönitz acknowledged with his new policy that he knew of no tactics or weapons that would defend his submarines from Allied aircraft. In the end, it was a matter of choosing whether his submariners would die submerged or die surfaced. Either way, Allied aircraft prevailed. The Allied Air Campaign Against Hitler’s U-Boats is the most comprehensive study ever undertaken of this most crucial battle which helped turn the Battle of the Atlantic irrevocably in favour of the Allies.

Book Short Summary:

Although nearly 90% of the population of Great Britain remained civilians throughout the war, or for a large part of it, their story has so far largely gone untold. In contrast with the thousands of books on military operations, barely any have concerned themselves with the individual's experience. The problems of the ordinary family are barely ever mentioned - food rationing, clothes rationing, the black-out and air raids get little space, and everyday shortages almost none at all. This book is an attempt to redress the balance; to tell the civilian's story largely through their own recollections and in their own words.

Book Short Summary:

How Jeremy Corbyn, the radical left candidate for the Labour leadership, won twice—and won big In the 2017 general election, Jeremy Corbyn pulled off an historic upset, attracting the biggest increase in the Labour vote since 1945. It was another reversal of expectations for the mainstream media and his ‘soft-left’ detractors. Demolishing the Blairite opposition in 2015, Corbyn had already seen off an attempted coup. Now, he had shattered the government’s authority, and even Corbyn’s most vitriolic critics have been forced into stunned mea culpas. For the first time in decades, socialism is back on the agenda—and for the first time in Labour’s history, it defines the leadership. Richard Seymour tells the story of how Corbyn’s rise was made possible by the long decline of Labour and by a deep crisis in British democracy. He shows how Corbyn began the task of rebuilding Labour as a grassroots party, with a coalition of trade unionists, young and precarious workers, students and ‘Old Labour’ pugilists, who then became the biggest campaigning army in British politics. Utilizing social media, activists turned the media’s Project Fear on its head and broke the ideological monopoly of the tabloids. After the election, with all the artillery still ranged against Corbyn, and with all the weaknesses of the Left’s revival, Seymour asks what Corbyn can do with his newfound success.

Book Short Summary:

MORE THAN EIGHT YEARS ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST The extraordinary, one-of-a-kind, “nothing short of spectacular” (Entertainment Weekly) memoir from one of the world’s most gifted storytellers. The Glass Castle is a remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. When sober, Jeannette’s brilliant and charismatic father captured his children’s imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn’t want the responsibility of raising a family. The Walls children learned to take care of themselves. They fed, clothed, and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to be homeless even as their children prospered. The Glass Castle is truly astonishing—a memoir permeated by the intense love of a peculiar but loyal family. The memoir was also made into a major motion picture from Lionsgate in 2017 starring Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts.

Book Short Summary:

Yevgeny Zamyatin's We is set in an urban glass city called OneState, regulated by spies and secret police. Citizens of the tyrannical OneState wear identical clothing and are distinguished only by the number assigned to them at birth. The story follows a man called D-503, who dangerously begins to veer from the 'norms' of society after meeting I-330, a woman who defies the rules. D-503 soon finds himself caught up in a secret plan to destroy OneState and liberate the city. The failed utopia of We has been compared to the works of H.G. Wells, George Orwell, and Aldous Huxley. It was the first novel banned by the Soviets in 1921, and was finally published in its home country over a half-century later. We is a part of Momentum's Classic Science Fiction series. "The best single work of science fiction yet written." — Ursula K. Le Guin

Book Short Summary:

How the obsession with quantifying human performance threatens business, medicine, education, government—and the quality of our lives Today, organizations of all kinds are ruled by the belief that the path to success is quantifying human performance, publicizing the results, and dividing up the rewards based on the numbers. But in our zeal to instill the evaluation process with scientific rigor, we've gone from measuring performance to fixating on measuring itself—and this tyranny of metrics now threatens the quality of our organizations and lives. In this brief, accessible, and powerful book, Jerry Muller uncovers the damage metrics are causing and shows how we can begin to fix the problem. Filled with examples from business, medicine, education, government, and other fields, the book explains why paying for measured performance doesn't work, why surgical scorecards may increase deaths, and much more. But Muller also shows that, when used as a complement to judgment based on personal experience, metrics can be beneficial, and he includes an invaluable checklist of when and how to use them. The result is an essential corrective to a harmful trend that increasingly affects us all.

A dramatic page-turner that captures the devastating toll of war and the impact of women's struggles and solidarity, through the lens of a little-known slice of history. In 1917, Russia is losing the war with Germany, soldiers are deserting in droves, and food shortages on the home front are pushing people to the brink of revolution. Seventeen-year-old Katya is politically conflicted, but she wants Russia to win the war. Working at a munitions factory seems like the most she can do to serve her country—until the government begins recruiting an all-female army battalion. Inspired, Katya enlists.

Book Short Summary:

For more than 400 years, the big-gun warship stood as the supreme naval war machine. It was not only a major instrument of warfare, but a visible emblem of a nation’s power, wealth and pride. So powerful was the link between the battleship and national feeling that even into the nuclear era, some, like France’s Richelieu, were held in naval reserve. The World’s Greatest Battleships features 52 of the greatest warships to have sailed and fought in the last 500 years. Beginning with English king Henry VIII’s flagship, Henry Grace à Dieu, the book covers all the main periods of battleship development, including the great sail ships, such as Sovereign of the Seas, Santissima Trinidad and HMS Victory. The advent of steam-driven warships provide the core of the book, beginning with the introduction of Gloire in 1859, and continuing through all the major pre-Dreadnoughts, such as Inflexible, Mikasa, Maine and Tsessarevitch. The author continues with detailed coverage of the great battleships of the two world wars, including Derfflinger, Nagato, Hood, Scharnhorst, Vittorio Veneto, Yamato and Iowa. The book closes with the last new battleship to be commissioned, Vanguard, in 1946. Included are some of the world’s greatest and most powerful capital ships. Many had eventful careers and participated in famous actions – such as the Prince of Wales’ and Hood’s pursuit of the German raider Bismarck; others, such as the Tirpitz, are remembered as a lurking threat; yet others, such as the USS Maine, are only remembered for being sunk in mysterious circumstances. Each entry includes a brief description of the battleship’s development and history, a profile view, key features and specifications. Packed with more than 200 artworks and photographs, The World’s Greatest Battleships is a colourful guide for the military historian and naval warfare enthusiast.

In 2011, D.J. McIntosh took the book world by storm with her debut novel,The Witch of Babylon. Praised for its “stellar research” and “superb writing”, it introduced readers to John Madison, a rakish New York art dealer with a past, who uncovered a fabulous treasure trove of antiquities in the hills outside of Baghdad and the truth behind a famous story long believed to by a myth. In the highly anticipated sequel, New York art dealer John Madison travels to London to purchase at auction a rare seventeenth-century Italian book of fairy tales for an anonymous client. Before he can deliver it to the buyer, he is robbed by a mysterious man claiming to be the book's author. When his client disappears and the book’s provenance is questioned, Madison realizes that the only way to find the buyer, recover the lost book, and save his reputation is to immerse himself in the world of European aristocracy and bibliophilic obsession. Along the way, he discovers that a well-loved children's tale contains a necromancer's spell and the truth about an ancient Mesopotamian plague.

Book Short Summary:

A Jason Bourne novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Facing down mercenaries in Africa, Jason Bourne witnesses the death of an art dealer named Tracy Atherton. Her killing dredges up snatches of Bourne's impaired memory, in particular the murder of a young woman on Bali who entrusted him with a strangely engraved ring-an artifact of such powerful significance that people have killed to obtain it. Now he's determined to find the ring's owner and purpose. But Bourne never knows what terrible acts he'll discover he committed when he digs into the past. The trail will lead him through layers of conspiracy to a vicious Russian mercenary, Leonid Arkadin, who was also a graduate of the Central Intelligence training program Treadstone. A covert course designed to create ruthless assassins for C.I., it was shuttered by Congress for corruption. Yet before it was dismantled, it produced Bourne and Arkadin, giving them equal skills, equal force, and equal cunning. As Bourne's destiny circles closer to Arkadin's, it becomes clear that the eventual collision of these men is not of their own making. Someone else has been watching and manipulating them. Someone who wants to know, Who is the more deadly agent?

Book Short Summary:

In the explosive finale to the epic romantic saga, Bella has one final choice to make. Should she stay mortal and strengthen her connection to the werewolves, or leave it all behind to become a vampire? When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved? To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife have led her to the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates of two tribes hangs. This astonishing, breathlessly anticipated conclusion to the Twilight Saga illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic. It's here! #1 bestselling author Stephenie Meyer makes a triumphant return to the world of Twilight with the highly anticipated companion, Midnight Sun: the iconic love story of Bella and Edward told from the vampire's point of view.

Book Short Summary:

Longlisted for the International DUBLIN Literary Award Emily Dickinson’s life is reimagined in her own voice and through eyes of a young Irish maid—an enchanting novel in the spirit of Longbourn and Mrs. Poe Ada Concannon’s first day in America is a success. She’s the new maid for the respected but eccentric Dickinson family of Amherst, Massachusetts. Despite the differences in age and class, eighteen-year-old Ada, “a neat little Irish person, fresh off the boat,” strikes up a deep freindship with Miss Emily, the gifted elder daughter living a spinster’s life at home. Emily is a bastion of support as Ada struggles to find her place in this new world, while Ada’s toil gives Emily the freedom she needs to write. But Emily’s passion for words begins to dominate her life. She decides to wear nothing but white and increasingly avoids the outside world. When Ada’s safety and reputation are threatened, however, Emily faces down her own demons in order to help her friend, with shocking consequences.

Book Short Summary:

▶ 빨간 머리 앤(Anne) 시리즈 제7탄 무지개 골짜기(Rainbow Valley by L. M. Montgomery)(1919) : 제7탄에 등장하는 앤은 어느새 41세로, 무려 여섯 명 – 젬(Jem), 월터(Walter), 난(Nan), 디(Di), 셜리(Shirley), 릴라(Rilla)의 자녀를 둔 결혼 15년차의 중년 아줌마가 되었습니다. 작품에서는 앤 부부보다는 그들의 이웃 존 메레디스(John Meredith)와 그의 아이들이 진(眞) 주인공으로 등장합니다. 네 명의 자녀 - 제럴드(Gerald), 페이스(Faith), 우나(Una), 토마스 칼라일(Thomas Carlyle)을 둔 장로교 목사(Presbyterian minister) 존 메레디스(John Meredith)는 상처한 후 홀로 아이들을 부양하는 홀아비로 앤 부부가 런던 여행을 마치고 돌아온 글렌 세인트 메리(Glen St. Mary)에 새롭게 부임합니다. 낯선 마을에 도착한 아이들은 고아 소녀 메리 밴스(Mary Vance)를 구하는 등 착하고 친절하지만, 주민들의 눈에는 지나친 사고뭉치로 보이곤 합니다. 아이들은 마을 곳곳을 누비며 활개를 치는데, 가장 대표적인 장소가 책 제목인 무지개 골짜기(Rainbow Valley)입니다. 어른들의 눈길이 사나워지자 그들과 함께 어울리는 젬 불라이스(Jem Blythe)는 스스로 처벌을 결정하는 좋은 행동 클럽(Good-Conduct Club)을 결성해 소기의 성과를 거두지만, 지나치게 과도한 처벌로 인해 폐렴에 걸리고, 금식 후 기절하는 등의 부작용을 피할 수 없었습니다. 숱한 사건사고는 결국 존 메레디스가 아이들에게 좋은 어머니가 필요하다는 자각을 하게 만들었고, 때마침 여동생 엘렌(Ellen)과 동거하는 로즈마리 웨스트(Rosemary West)와 사랑에 빠지는데…. 한편 엘렌과 로즈마리는 서로를 떠나지 않겠다고 약속한 독특한 관계였기에, 오빠 존은 로즈마리보다 엘렌의 허락을 받기 위해 고군분투하게 됩니다. 과연 존은 사고뭉치 아이들에게 어머니를 소개해 줄 수 있을까요? 아이들은 과연 새엄마를 찾는 아버지에게 어떤 사건사고를 선물할까요? 테마여행신문 TTN Korea 영어고전(English Classics)과 함께 어제도, 오늘도, 내일도 멋진 문학여행을! B ▶ 빨간 머리 앤(Anne)의 고향, 캐나다 프린스 에드워드 섬(Prince Edward Island) : 루시 모드 몽고메리(Lucy Maud Montgomery, OBE)는 1874년 11월 캐나다 동쪽 끝자락에 위치한 외딴 섬 프린스 에드워드 섬(Prince Edward Island)에서 태어났습니다. 그녀는 2살이 채 되기도 전에 어머니를 잃고, 혼자 남은 아버지는 7살 때 홀로 프린스 앨버트(Prince Albert, Saskatchewan)로 떠나는 바람에 할아버지와 할머니 품에서 자랐습니다. 부모와 형제자매 없이 자란 몽고메리는 자연스럽게 상상의 세계에 빠져들었고, 그 공간에서 자신들의 친구와 어울렸습니다. 그녀의 작품에 유독 ‘혼자서도 씩씩한 고아 소녀’가 주로 등장하는 것은 부모와 함께하지 못한 그녀의 유년시절이 영향을 미친 것입니다. 우리에게는 ‘빨간 머리 앤’이라 불리지만, 원제는 그린 게이블의 앤(Anne of Green Gables)입니다. 게이블(Gables)은 교차하는 지붕 피치의 가장자리 사이에 있는 벽의 일반적으로 삼각형 부분(the generally triangular portion of a wall between the edges of intersecting roof pitches)으로 그린 게이블(Green Gables)은 ‘초록 지붕의 집’이란 의미입니다. ‘파란 대문집 철수’, ‘문방구네 영희’처럼 사는 집으로 앤을 정의한 것이지요. 놀랍게도 몽고메리의 고향 캐나다 프린스 에드워드 섬(Prince Edward Island)에는 그린 게이블(Green Gables)이 실존합니다. 온타리오(Ontario)의 리스크데일 목사관(Leaskdale manse)과 함께 캐나다 국립 사적지(National Historic Site of Canada)로 지정되었습니다. ▶ 루시 모드 몽고메리의 빨간 머리 앤 시리즈(Anne of Green Gables Series) 및 외전(1908~1939) : ‘빨간 머리’ 앤 셜리(Anne Shirley)는 총 11편의 본편과 3편의 외전 - 에이번리 연대기Ⅰ; 앤의 친구들(Chronicles of Avonlea)(1912), 에이번리의 연대기Ⅱ(Further Chronicles of Avonlea)(1920), 앤의 추억의 나날(블라이스 가의 단편들)(The Blythes Are Quoted)(2009)에 등장하는 몽고메리의 대표 캐릭터입니다. 출간순서와 시대 순에는 다소 차이가 있기에, 10대부터 50대까지 작품에 등장한 앤의 나이에 따라 나열하면 다음과 같습니다. 초록 지붕 집의 앤(Anne of Green Gables)(1908), 에이번리의 앤(Anne of Avonlea)(1909), 프린스에드워드 섬의 앤(레드먼드의 앤)(Anne of The Island)(1915), 윈디 윌로우스의 앤(버드나무 집의 앤)(Anne of Windy Poplars)(1936), 앤의 꿈의 집(Anne's House of Dreams)(1917), 잉글사이드의 앤(Anne of Ingleside)(1939), 무지개 골짜기(Rainbow Valley)(1919), 잉글사이드의 릴라(Rilla of Ingleside)(1939). ▶ CHAPTER III. THE INGLESIDE CHILDREN. Outside of Rainbow Valley the wind might be rollicking and boisterous. Here it always went gently. Little, winding, fairy paths ran here and there over spruce roots cushioned with moss. Wild cherry trees, that in blossom time would be misty white, were scattered all over the valley, mingling with the dark spruces. A little brook with amber waters ran through it from the Glen village. The houses of the village were comfortably far away; only at the upper end of the valley was a little tumble-down, deserted cottage, referred to as “the old Bailey house.” It had not been occupied for many years, but a grass-grown dyke surrounded it and inside was an ancient garden where the Ingleside children could find violets and daisies and June lilies still blooming in season. ▷ 제3장. 잉글사이드 아이들. 무지개 골짜기 밖에서는 바람이 거세게 불 수 있습니다. 여기에서는 항상 부드럽게 진행되었습니다. 작고 구불구불한 요정 길이 이끼로 덮인 가문비나무 뿌리 위로 여기저기에 달렸습니다. 만개하면 안개 낀 하얗게 될 들벚나무가 계곡 전체에 흩어져 어두운 가문비나무와 어우러졌다. 글렌 마을에서 호박색 물이 흐르는 작은 개울이 흐르고 있었습니다. 마을의 집들은 편안하게 멀리 떨어져 있었습니다. 계곡의 위쪽 끝에는 "오래된 베일리 집"이라고 불리는 약간 무너진 황량한 오두막집이 있었습니다. 그것은 수년 동안 점령되지 않았지만 풀이 자란 제방이 그것을 둘러싸고 있었고 내부에는 잉글사이드 아이들이 제비꽃과 데이지와 제철에 피는 6월 백합을 볼 수 있는 고대 정원이 있었습니다. ▶ CHAPTER XXXIV. UNA VISITS THE HILL. Down at the manse Una Meredith, warm, rosy, triumphant, marched boldly into her father’s study and laid a letter on the desk before him. His pale face flushed as he saw the clear, fine handwriting he knew so well. He opened the letter. It was very short—but he shed twenty years as he read it. Rosemary asked him if he could meet her that evening at sunset by the spring in Rainbow Valley. ▷ 제34장. 언덕을 방문한 우나(UNA). 따뜻하고 장밋빛이며 의기양양한 우나 메레디스의 저택에 내려가 아버지의 서재로 대담하게 행진하여 아버지 앞에 있는 책상 위에 편지를 올려놓았습니다. 자신이 너무나 잘 알고 있는 선명하고 섬세한 필체를 보았을 때 그의 창백한 얼굴이 붉어졌습니다. 그는 편지를 열었습니다. 아주 짧았지만 그는 그것을 읽으면서 20년을 흘렸습니다. 로즈마리는 그에게 그날 저녁 레인보우 밸리의 봄 해질녘에 그녀를 만날 수 있는지 물었습니다. -목차(Index)- 프롤로그(Prologue). 테마여행신문 TTN Korea 영어고전(English Classics) 999선을 읽어야 하는 7가지 이유 ▶ 18가지 키워드로 읽는 루시 모드 몽고메리(L.
