In Sunlight and in Shadow, HELPRIN, Mark
348 7081 HELPRIN, Mark In Sunlight and in Shadow
Hardcover Houghton Mifflin Harcourt: NY; 2012; First US Edition; First Printing 705 pages Very Good in Near Fine dust wrapper 
Spine ends lightly bumped, green ink line on bottom edge, remnant of a sticker blacked out with ink on front free endpaper. Unclipped dust wrapper very lightly edgeworn.; 'Can love and honor conquer all? Mark Helprin’s enchanting and sweeping novel springs from this deceptively simple question, and from the sight of a beautiful young woman, dressed in white, on the Staten Island Ferry, at the beginning of summer, 1946.

Postwar New York glows with energy. Harry Copeland, an elite paratrooper who fought behind enemy lines in Europe, has returned home to run the family business. Yet his life is upended by a single encounter with the young singer and heiress Catherine Thomas Hale, as they each fall for the other in an instant.

Harry and Catherine pursue one another in a romance played out in Broadway theaters, Long Island mansions, the offices of financiers, and the haunts of gangsters. Catherine’s choice of Harry over her longtime fiancé endangers Harry’s livelihood and eventually threatens his life. In the end, it is Harry’s extraordinary wartime experience that gives him the character and means to fight for Catherine, and risk everything.'; While set in 1946 New York this book does spend a significant amount of time in World War II Europe. Recommended for those that can handle the WWII details and some gang violence and for those that enjoyed Helprin's "A Winters Tale". Image is actual copy on offer.

Mention of Scotland and the Scots usually conjures up images of kilts, bagpipes, Scotch whisky, and golf.But as historian and author Arthur Herman demonstrates, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries Scotland earned the respect of the rest of the world for its crucial contributions to science, philosophy, literature, education, medicine, commerce, and politics—contributions that have formed and nurtured the modern West ever since.'; 'A fascinating journey across the centuries of Scottish history. Herman lucidly summarizes the ideas, discoveries, and achievements that made this small country facing on the North Atlantic an inspiration and driving force in world history. Here is the untold story of how John Knox and the Church of Scotland laid the foundation for our modern idea of democracy; how the Scottish Enlightenment helped to inspire both the American Revolution and the U.S. Constitution; and how thousands of Scottish immigrants left their homes to create the American frontier, the Australian outback, and the British Empire in India and Hong Kong.'

Everyone on the scene seems to have a motive, not to mention the wherewithal to commit murder, and alibis that simply don't hold up.

The inspector is sorely tried by a wide variety of suspects, including the neglected widow, the neighbour who's in love with her, her resentful daughter, and a patently phony Russian prince preying on the widow's emotional vulnerability and social aspirations. And then there's the blackmail plot that may – or may not – be at the heart of the case...." Image is actual copy on offer.
