Hjärtblad

Description: Detta är berättelsen om Hulda. I den värld där hon växer upp i tvingas hon tidigt lära sig att arbeta hårt och att ta ansvar. På myrarna och i skogen vallar hon byns kor och getter, och när hon blir tillräckligt stor väntar fäbodens slit i ur och skur. Så småningom blir hon konfirmerad och är då plötsligt giftasvuxen, med lov att dansa till spelmannens förföriska fiolmusik. Kärleken och åtrån börjar bulta inom henne. Som så många andra dalkullor före henne ger hon sig ut på vandring för att tjäna pengar på att sälja varor av skilda slag i trakter långt från hembygden. Men för Hulda väcks nya tankar till liv: hon vill åt Stockholm, till äventyret.

The Modern Scholar: The Quest: The Historians' Search for Jesus and Muhammad

Description: Esteemed professor emeritus F. E. Peters compares the similarities and differences in the dual searches for the historical Jesus and the historical Muhammad. These quests have been the focus of considerable effort since the lifetime of each of these venerated figures. Using the primary tools of historical inquiry and the evidence discovered by both believers and unbelievers in the faiths established by Jesus and Muhammad, Professor Peters provides an insightful look into the results thus far found and the surprising truths uncovered.

The Pale Horseman: The Saxon Chronicles, Book 2

Description: Uhtred, Northumbrian born, raised a Viking and married to a Saxon, is a formidable warrior, and he, together with the thoughtful and pious Alfred, Alfred's family, and a few of Uhtred's companions, are apparently all that remain of the Wessex leadership after a disastrous truce.Defeated comprehensively by the Vikings, Alfred and his Saxon followers seek refuge in Athelney, a tidal swamp and all that is left of Alfred's kingdom. Uhtred still thinks of rejoining his Danish foster brother and the victorious Vikings, but he finds a growing respect for the stubborn leadership of Alfred, to whom Uhtred's support is essential if the Saxon strength is to be rebuilt and battle joined with the enemy.

The Elegance Of The Hedgehog

Description: The Elegance of the Hedgehog tells the story of a life spent in hiding. Madame Michel is the concierge of a luxurious Parisian apartment building, tending to the plants, signing for packages, and polishing the brass, retreating when she can to her rooms on the first floor. She keeps a television blaring where the tenants can hear it; she zealously polices her speech and gestures to keep from giving herself away. What is the secret she hides? Madame Michel is an intellectual. She knows Kant, but she's separated by class from other people who do, so she discusses his work with herself while we listen in. Her musings are voiced by Barbara Rosenblat, who lends an air of theatrical irony — an auditory raised eyebrow — to her descriptions of class blind spots and philosophical rabbit holes.
