Growing up in London in the aftermath of the Second World War, Ruth is an observant and thoughtful child who finds herself in a confusing and mysterious adult world. She seeks refuge in her memories of her idyllic stays with her grandparents in the picturesque East Anglian countryside - which provide comforting visions of a simpler life. As she comes to terms with her surroundings and her own adolescence, Ruth finds the motivation to pursue the tantalizing dream which has governed her childhood, and discovers some family secrets along the way. A coming-of-age novel about the unpredictable nature of human behaviour and about taking control of one's destiny, Silent Music is a timeless portrait of post-war Britain, as well as a lyrical paean to hope and aspiration.

Die Liebe hat elf Dimensionen

Die Liebe hat elf Dimensionen

Author: Jane Hawking Format: eBook Release Date: 16/04/2013

Als Jane Wilde Stephen Hawking auf einer Neujahrsparty 1963 kennenlernt, ist der extravagante, blasierte Student aus Oxford bereits schwerkrank. Die beiden heiraten, obwohl Stephens Lebenserwartung damals nicht einmal zwei Jahre betragt. Es folgen 25 gemeinsame Jahre, in denen Jane ein Schattendasein fuhrt, zugleich aber ihren Mann 24 Stunden am Tag pflegt, drei Kinder mit ihm bekommt, und dazwischen selbst den Doktortitel erwirbt. Jane Hawking erzahlt vom verzweifelten Kampf um Selbstbehauptung, von der Liebe zu einem Mann, in dessen verfallenem Korper der vielleicht grote Geist unserer Zeit steckt, vom bitteren Showdown ihrer Ehe - und zuletzt von Versohnung und der Macht der Freundschaft.
