There is something I’ve come to vI wanted to read this book because I am working in a hotel and I know how hard it can be to get all the things right.
There is something I’ve come to value about hotel stays: how in the accustomed rituals and formalities of arrival and departure, each visit mimics a larger journey. And in that transition, the span between check-in and check-out, guests are liberated from the uncomfortable truth that, sooner than anyone likes to imagine, the trip has ended and the time has come to pay the bill.
In his book, Dennis Coates shared funny moments as poor Martin Hammond, the new appointed manager, tries without success to deal with managing the hotel, a large staff, and of his love life.
Dealing with unhappy customers, and dishonest staff, Mr.Hammond give us a snapshot of life in the hospitality industry very close to the well-known English series of Basil Fawlty.full of British humor and embarrassing situations,

In this book Terry Tyler draws her own story of Henry VIII, setting it in the modern day. Harry Lanchester is a property magnate and will amaze the readers with his personality and behaviour. He is a decadent libertine who gets exactly what he wants, his way and divorces or "beheads" his multiple wives and mistresses when he is tired of them. Quite a cold and sometimes childlike character, Harry is a self indulgent man and Terry, through his six wives' points of view and his best friend Will Brandon describes him as often a pathetic figure. For me it was difficult to decide if I liked or I hated him.
Readers will be caught up by King and Queens, a real page turner and saga through the Lanchester family dramas, betrayals and mayhem. For readers who know the story of Henry the VIII, Kings and Queens offers a new interpretation of the Tudor period at a modern level, proving that human nature doesn't change over decades. Whether it is about a reign or just about a family business, people love and hate and are going through many of the same dramas today...more

When I start this book I didn't know what to expect from the beginning.Going deep into the story I was glad that I had the The Healer of Wounded Souls
When I start this book I didn't know what to expect from the beginning.Going deep into the story I was glad that I had the chance to read "The Healer of Wounded Soul". This is one of the books which isn't in top 100 best sellers and unfortunately not so many people speak about it and is such a shame.I thing you will agree with me if you'd take the chance to read Diane Adam's book.
Hope Evans have an accident on the way to her job,which happens to be a hospital where she worked for seven years.In the emergency room she felt a tap on her shoulder and saw an an Angel who beckoned to her to follow.And so,the adventure began,the transition stage between life and death.She has a choice of dying or return with a mission of using her skills of helping others.
Going back to life she meet a former pilot Nick who take care of her after her house was bombed and Hope become a spiritual healer. for brave soldiers who fought in Afghanistan and Iraq,people who damaged their well being in the service of their country.She use her skills to help those men, who were transformed from being brave warriors in people with PTSD issues,people who were wounded not only by a sniper but with wounded souls.Being brave and fighting for their country left them exhausted and in constant pain,not necessary physical but emotional and spiritual.
For doing good,Hope Evans is in trouble and sounds like someone doesn't like much what she is doing.Who are this people? Are they some religious fanatics,terrorist groups or maybe some government departments?Who is to blame for her trouble?
This is Nick's mission to find out,and he learned the hard way that you must be cautious of those who you chose to trust.Some of them will betray you to others in power.
I found Diane Adams' book a very touching story and being a fictional work doesn't stop me to think at all this soldiers and how the war affected their life and families.Many of them returned home dead while others were dead inside.I think Healer of Wounded Souls is a tribute to all of them and their courage and devotion.
If I convinced you to read this book,please pay your tribute too and leave a review.The author will be grateful and the brave soldiers need to be remembered.

What is the real value of a child’s life?
This author presents a portrait of a social worker, Wally Rose, whose major attributes are compassion, patience, commitment and resilience. Readers of Like a Child to Home will hopefully come to better understand how hard it can be to gain the trust of injured youth.
Often this bond of trust is a prerequisite to help young people find answers or accept advice and direction. Readers will also come to understand how easy it is for these young people to transform their fears into aggressiveness and isolation as they struggle with family distress, drug use and violence.
Without support from experienced people, the choices young people make can tarnish their lives forever. For any society this is a disgrace. Even though the value of a child’s life is incommensurable, sometimes social workers are limited by the very system they toil in.
The author presents many different cases and diverse ways of handling them. The main case, peppered through the novel, showcases the story of the Prentice family, the mother Carla, her son Jordan, who is already living on the street, and her daughter Skye, who has recently run away from home and the efforts to return her home and effect a family reunification.
As I was reading the book I had the sensation of being there with the social workers and facing together their need to make decisions, trying mightily to put into place resolutions that will be in the best interest of each child. Bill puts so well on paper the pressure of such a job that I can fully understand his choice to take an early retirement. As he has made clear, this work need a lot of commitment and dedication, and the social workers’ personal life is often secondary.
Bill Engleson’s first novel, Like a Child to Home, is a powerful and original take on what it means to be a social worker. While not a typical read, it is an interesting one. ...more

Review of A Luminous Future by Teodor Flonta Madi Preda - AuthorsPR
In his memoirs of a childhood in Romania during the communism, Teodor Flonta offers Review of A Luminous Future by Teodor Flonta Madi Preda - AuthorsPR
In his memoirs of a childhood in Romania during the communism, Teodor Flonta offers an insight into the life in a small village in Transylvania, Lupoaia. The author describes in precisely details how it was like living in Romania under the communist regime and how its poisonous touch left a mark on people lives. His father was a survivor of several persecution and accusations of being a chiabur and enemy of the people, by Securitate and Mr.Flonta felt the need to tell the story about the reality of life at the time, the indoctrination in school and the permanent fear of the secret police who always was watching and listening. In his honesty Teodor Flonta describes how friends or members of the family betray each other and how people learned to bend under the cruelty of oppressors to stay alive. The individual characters are powerfully described and the author caught in an absolute perfect way the ugliness of life in The Communist Era. Teodor Flonta convey a certain sadness over the people lives and reveals the oppressive regime as it was, a political poison and not at all a social paradise, there wasn't a luminous future how The Communist Party liked to say. But there always was hope and today Romania is a free country,a part of a free world. Few reminiscences there but the things will change through a few generations,once again there is hope. A Luminous Future would be a great read for the young generation to understand what communism meant in Romania and for everyone else who is interested in political studies or people who want to know more about this beautiful country and understand what the Romanians were going through. A Luminous Future: Growing Up in Transylvania in the Shadow of Communism I have to say that I am Romanian so Mr.Flonta’s book resonates with me in a special way.

Going through what may be many women’s nightmare, coping with an abusive husband and two badly behaved daughters, Libby is working hard to maintain the façade of a normal family.
Along the way she has lost her self-esteem and her confidence, she is never shown any respect apart from one very good friend, Carol, who she met at the police training establishment. Jack is a very selfish character who has bullied her all their life, and treated her like someone who doesn’t matter at all and her daughters, grown ups now, call her a doormat without putting any fault on their father or questioning his behaviour.
Not being able to express herself or discuss anything with her family, Libby starts writing and tries to keep this hidden from them. Every time when they discover what she has been up to they laugh at her and make her feel even more insignificant.
In this book by Shirley Ford, I identified a few major subplots; the strong beliefs of Libby’s in her marriage vows despite her husband’s character, her strength to rebuild herself after Jack’s death and the importance of friendship and being surrounded by supportive people who believe in you, which helps Libby to become a successful writer.
