Author of Reese's Book Club YA Pick The Light in Hidden Places, Sharon Cameron, delivers an emotionally gripping and utterly immersive thriller, perfect for fans of Ruta Sepetys's Salt to the Sea. In 1946, Eva leaves behind the rubble of Berlin for the streets of New York City, stepping from the fiery aftermath of one war into another, far colder one, where power is more important than principles, and lies are more plentiful than the truth. Eva holds the key to a deadly secret: Project Bluebird -- a horrific experiment of the concentration camps, capable of tipping the balance of world power. Both the Americans and the Soviets want Bluebird, and it is something that neither should ever be allowed to possess. But Eva hasn't come to America for secrets or power. She hasn't even come for a new life. She has come to America for one thing: justice. And the Nazi that has escaped its net. Critically acclaimed author of The Light in Hidden Places Sharon Cameron weaves a taut and affecting thriller ripe with intrigue and romance in this alternately chilling and poignant portrait of the personal betrayals, terrifying injustices, and deadly secrets that seethe beneath the surface in the aftermath of World War II.

Volume I, covering 1827-33, appeared in 1997. This volume covers 1834-36, the period in which Branwell, focusing on the growing conflict between Alexander Percy, Earl of Northangerland, and Arthur Wellesly, Duke of Zamorna and King of Angria, produced the largest, most sustained body of written work of any comparable period in his literary life, totaling approximately 308,500 words of prose and 42 (37 extant) poems. Of the prose, approximately 241,000 words are published here for the first time. Volume III, covering 1837-47, is due to appear in 1999.

This volume, first published in 1999, contains all of Patrick Branwell Brontë’s known writings, excluding his letters, from 1834 to 1836. This title primarily focuses on the creation of Angria, and on the growing conflict between Alexander Percy, Earl of Northangerland, and Arthur Wellesly, Duke of Zamorna and King Adrian of Angria. All of the texts in this edition are based on Neufeldt’s own transcriptions of the manuscripts, or, where the manuscript is unavailable, on the most reliable accessible text. This edition serves as a record for the growth and development of Branwell’s writing, and it is hoped that it will help to dispel some of the myths and misconceptions that have become associated with Branwell’s name. This book will be of interest to students of English Literature.

Personal letters can provide us with a unique opportunity. The letters in this collection offer a glimpse into the personal lives of two people whose lives, like so many others, were interrupted by World War II. These letters date from August 1943 to March 1946, the time that Alfred Chandler served in the Army Medical Corps. The majority of the 700 plus letters were written by Alfred and Janice, his wife, to each other. They wrote faithfully whenever they were apart. Alfred was facing an unforeseeable future as he embarked on his wartime assignment in Europe, and Janice had her own challenges living back home with her family in Massachusetts. It is unusual to have such an extensive collection of personal letters survive, given the variety of circumstances which could have caused them to be lost or destroyed. It is even more amazing that mail was so successfully delivered to battlefields and bases all over the world, a truly major accomplishment.
