He has returned from the far North where he tells of strange sights-a beautiful city hovering in the sky above the pole, a shimmering Dust that settles on and delineates all but human children. Lyra is scarcely able to save his life before Lord Asriel is off again, on a quest to answer the riddle of the world. Meanwhile, children are disappearing, and when Lyra's dearest friend is taken by the Gobblers, she determines to save him-a decision which leads her on a great journey, a journey that will lead to the discovery of her mother, a disastrous betrayal and the beginning of the unravelling of the mystery of Dust."

133 6972 SAYERS, Dorothy L. Busman's Honeymoon
Softcover; Mass Market PB HarperCollins: NY; c1937, 1995; 403 pages Very Good 
This is 'the last of the Wimsey mysteries completed by Dorothy Sayers. And while murder is hardly the best way for the newlyweds to begin their honeymoon, it is certainly the most appropriate. Their married life begins when the former owner of their newly acquired estate is found quite dead in the cellar. What Lord Peter hopes to be a private and romantic stay in the country becomes a baffling case, what with a misspelled "notise" to the milkman and a dead man who has not a spot of blood on his smashed skull and not a pence less than six hundred pounds in his pocket. In short, as Lord Peter says, "Back to the old grind. Rigor mortis and who-saw-him-last, blood-prints, information received and it-is-my-dooty-to-warn-you." Together, the newlyweds pursue the truth to its less than happy ending even as they look ahead to their lives together.' Recommended.; Light spine creases, covers creased and lightly edgeworn, pages and inside covers age browned; pages clean, none loose. ; "Busman's Honeymoon has everything—mystery, comedy, love, and drama—all served up in Dorothy Sayers's best style."—NYTimes This author highly recommended by many Anglophile Books readers including Jerri C. of the ATS and the AT and DES email discussion groups.

Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The, SHAFFER, Mary Ann And Annie Barrows
134 7040 SHAFFER, Mary Ann And Annie Barrows Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The
Hardcover The Dial Press: NY; 2008; Second Printing 278 pages Near Fine in Near Fine dust wrapper 
“ I wonder how the book got to Guernsey? Perhaps there is some sort of secret homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers.” January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she’s never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb….

As Juliet and her new correspondent exchange letters, Juliet is drawn into the world of this man and his friends—and what a wonderfully eccentric world it is. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society—born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi when its members were discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island—boasts a charming, funny, deeply human cast of characters, from pig farmers to phrenologists, literature lovers all.

Juliet begins a remarkable correspondence with the society’s members, learning about their island, their taste in books, and the impact the recent German occupation has had on their lives. Captivated by their stories, she sets sail for Guernsey, and what she finds will change her forever.

Written with warmth and humor as a series of letters, this novel is a celebration of the written word in all its guises, and of finding connection in the most surprising ways." Highly recommended. Basis for the film "Guernsey" directed by Mike Newell and featuring Lily James and Matthew Goode.
; Spine ends and two corners lightly bumped. Unclipped dust wrapper very lightly edgeworn. A very nice copy indeed.; Recommended by Linda S, Sharon D., and several members of the DES and AT email discussion groups, including Kristi J., Julie B., Louise D., Laura N. 'My local Book Club loved it so much we talk about a possible trip to Guernsey. Isn't that one of the things a good book will do for us, make us want to see and experience the locale for ourselves'? and Susan D. '...such a wonderful read I can't say enough good things about it. It is full of humour and humanity and decency and love and war and mystery and betrayal and marvellous characters. Oh, and books. It's a quintessential perfect read for any Dessie.'

Softcover; Trade PB St Martin's Griffin: NY; c1948, 1998; 343 pages B&W Illustrations: Very Good+ 
A nice copy. No spine or cover creases, covers lightly edgeworn, a few faint smudges to page edges. This edition has a short list of discussion questions and a very short biography of the author. ; Basis for the BBC film released in 2003. The first novel by this author, who was best known for '101 Dalmations', written while she lived in the United States in the 1940's. This is one of the most enchanting and unusual coming of age stories. Set in a three-quarters ruined 600-year-old castle in the English countryside, the book is the journal of seventeen-year-old Cassandra. She is teaching herself to write, and does very well indeed at "capturing the castle. " She is growing up amid poverty along with her twenty-one year old sister Rose, her smart younger brother, her stepmother model, Topaz, and her eccentric father, stymied by writer's block for many years. Cassandra candidly chronicles the changes wrought by the arrival of Simon from America, heir to the nearby manor house and their landlord, along with his brother Neil and voluble mother. The devoted and shockingly handsome Stephen (penurious castle help), a charming Vicar, and a greasy photographer from London, round out the characters. Totally engaging...you will love it.; Recommended by Sulie and Holly H. of the DES email discussion group and by J. K. Rowling. Book matches sample image.
