108 7319 MATHESON, Richard Bid Time Return [Somewhere in Time]
Softcover; Mass Market PB Ballentine Books: NY; c1975, 1976; First Paperback Edition 278 pages Good 
Spine and cover creases, edgewear, spine foot reinforced with archival tape. Inside covers and first and last pages faintly dampstained on bottom edge. Front free endpaper removed, pages and inside covers age browned but not brittle. Previous owner initials inside rear cover.; Also published as 'Somewhere in Time', this novel is the basis for the wonderful movie starring Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeve (with a cameo appearance by Richard Matheson). While the movie was filmed on Mackinac Island the novel is set at the lovely Hotel del Coronado in San Diego, California.; 'Bid Time Return is a stunningly romantic novel of love and passion that literally transcends time, by an author far better known for his tales of science fiction and horror. Richard Matheson's premise is captivating: What if you were a dying young man, visiting a turn-of-the-century resort hotel? And what if you fell in love with a painting of a beautiful stage actress--but she had lived and died a century before? But--what if your love was so strong that you could literally will yourself back in time to become part of her world? In the tradition of the classic romantic ghost story "Portrait of Jennie," Matheson makes his two lovers totally believable, and so the undeniably fantastic premise soon becomes completely acceptable.' This book was one of the reasons my husband proposed to me at the 'Hotel del' as he knew that this tale of love and time travel was one of my favourites. Obviously, highly recommended.

Watching her is Robbie Turner, son of the Tallis's cleaning lady, whose education has been subsidized by Cecilia's and Briony's father, and who, like Cecilia, has recently come down from Cambridge. By day's end, their lives will be changed - irrevocably.

Robbie and Cecilia will have crossed a boundary they had not imagined at its start. And Briony will have witnessed mysteries, seen an unspeakable word, and committed a crime for which she will spend the rest of her life trying to atone...

Brilliant and utterly enthralling in its depiction of love and war and class and childhood and England, "An Atonement "is a profound - and profoundly moving - exploration of shame and forgiveness, of atonement and of the possibility of absolution.' Dust wrapper matches sample image.

Love in a Cold Climate, MITFORD, Nancy
118 7331 MITFORD, Nancy Love in a Cold Climate
Hardcover Folio Society: London; c1949, 1992; First Edition Thus 242 pages Near Fine 
This delightful edition has an introduction by Pauline Tennant and seventeen black and white plates by Roland Pym. Wonderful wraparound pictorial binding, clean, no binding problems. A lovely copy. No dust wrapper as issued, publisher's slipcase lightly soiled and sunned at edges.; "Love in a Cold Climate" is the sequel to, and has the same narrator as "The Pursuit of Love". Fanny's tale turns to Polly Hampton, the outstandingly beautiful, wealthy daughter of Lady Montdore, Lady Montdore's devoted attendant, Boy Dougdale--the Lecherous Lecturer, and the Canadian cousin of the Montdore's, Cedric. It is a tale of sly poking fun, charm, and absorption. Polly is a contemporary of Fanny and Linda's, with even fewer choices to pursue in the game of love and marriage. Like "The Pursuit of Love", this novel is robust in the amazing supporting cast, with the charmingly eccentric Uncle Davey at the forefront. Basis for the 1980 and the 2001 television mini-series.; Recommended by Holly H. of the ATS, and AT email discussion list and by several others. This title recommended by Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DES email discussion group. 'I have 3 copies of Love in a Cold Climate now...'

'As soon as Anne Shirley arrived at the snug, white farmhouse called Green Gables, she knew she wanted to stay forever... but would the Cuthberts send her back to the orphanage? Anne knows she's not what they expected -- a skinny girl with decidedly red hair and a temper to match. If only she could convince them to let her stay, she'd try very hard not to keep rushing headlong into scrapes or blurt out the very first thing she had to say. Anne was not like anybody else, everyone at Green Gables agreed; she was special -- a girl with an enormous imagination. This orphan girl dreamed of the day when she could call herself Anne of Green Gables. 'Highly recommended.
