A chilling ghost story with a twist: The New York Times best-selling author of The Winter People returns to the woods of Vermont to tell the story of a husband and wife who don´t simply move into a haunted house - they build one....In a quest for a simpler life, Helen and Nate have abandoned the comforts of suburbia to take up residence on 44 acres of rural land where they will begin the ultimate, aspirational do-it-yourself project: building the house of their dreams. When they discover that this beautiful property has a dark and violent past, Helen, a former history teacher, becomes consumed by the local legend of Hattie Breckenridge, a woman who lived and died there a century ago. With her passion for artifacts, Helen finds special materials to incorporate into the house - a beam from an old schoolroom, bricks from a mill, a mantel from a farmhouse - objects that draw her deeper into the story of Hattie and her descendants, three generations of Breckenridge women, each of whom died suspiciously. As the building project progresses, the house will become a place of menace and unfinished business: a new home, now haunted, that beckons its owners and their neighbors toward unimaginable danger. 1.

In The Secret Life of Bees, the narrator´s voice is quite convincing as a 14-year-old girl. Sue Monk Kidd uses a straightforward style, adding small remnants of magical realism to incorporate the bees, as well as the strange string of events that brings Lily and Rosaleen to the Boatwright house. Using historical markers - like the Civil Rights Act - Kidd manages to keep the story grounded in real events, counterbalancing a few fantastic or eccentric elements, like the pink house and a non-traditional view on religion. The beginning of each chapter features a quotation from nonfiction works that deals with bees and beekeeping. They all serve similar purposes, but many of the quotes are only loosely related to beekeeping. This is a summary and analysis of the book and not the original book. 1. Language: English.

Handel called Britain ´the ringing isle´ because when he moved to London, he heard bells ringing everywhere: great bells in church towers, and handbells in some of the first private houses he visited. The sound of people ´ringing the changes´ is a peculiarly British sound of celebration, and it seems a good starting point for a piece celebrating British musical life. Within The Ringing Isle, Dove incorporates some traditional change-ringing patterns, from ´Grandsire Doubles´, ´Oxford Treble Bob Minor´ and his own version of ´Plain Bob Major´. Handel´s phrase also conjures up an image of a magical island, and so this is how Dove envisaged how it must have been to approach Britain from an ocean voyage.
