It has been more than a year since Inspector Arthur Eldermann was sent to find the vanished children of Evynsford and the fingertips of some shadowy will were revealed. It could almost be believed whatever darkness had come to that secluded hamlet had been driven off. Yet the mists endure, an oppressive, smothering blanket, and as the pale summer of 1899 spreads up the British Isle, another ill wind blows across Evynsford from the Irish Sea. Something has been tearing apart the fields, and so three farmers set out to end the menace. When they don’t return, searches begin, and in a prospector’s lodge, a grisly scene is uncovered. It could not have been the work of any man, but no such creature haunts those shores. The watchman placates and consoles, but the cries of the widows and the fatherless grow too loud. Something must be done. Once again, things that cannot be explained are plaguing Evynsford, and a call goes out for a constable to help. Well, not a constable. Inspector Eldermann has not been idle this past year; his professional triumph and spiritual revival in Evynsford having landed quite a bit more in his lap. Case after gory case has been handed to him, sending him wading waist-deep into human depravity even as his soul strives to rediscover what it means to be holy. Wrestling with the black night inside himself and the world around him, the inspector is called back to the place where his life began its new road. Someone is waiting there for him, and she has been very patient...but can she and the man she longs to love stand together when darkness comes for them from within and without? 1. Language: English.

Carol Anne would always fear the night because she knew when she laid her head down on her pillow her nightmares would suffocate her as she squeezed her doll. Every night just shortly after midnight she would scream out for her mommy, but the screams would soon go unnoticed because when her mother would come in and check on her she would find nothing wrong. To make matters worse she had no bedroom door so anything she saw at her door would only inflame the situation. Every morning she sat with her mother at the kitchen table reliving her nightmares over and over in hopes her mother would believe what she was telling her is not a dream. Finally, her mother said, ´´If you don´t stop this nonsense you are going to get the spanking of your life.´´ Tears flowed down Carol Anne´s cheeks as she said, ´´Mommy, don´t worry when morning comes I won´t be sitting at the breakfast table pleading with you to believe what I say is true.´´ 1.

´If I could work my will,´ said Scrooge indignantly, ´every idiot who goes about with ´´Merry Christmas´´ on his lips should be boiled with his own pudding and buried with a stake of holly through his heart.´ A Christmas anthology from legendary historian and Christmas Cracker compiler John Julius Norwich. This year go carol singing in the Cotswolds with Laurie Lee or attend church with a grumpy Samuel Pepys. Make plum puddings for bemused French villagers with Elizabeth David; go present shopping with Virginia Woolf, or eat far too much with Agatha Christie. Celebrate Christmas at Chatsworth, in the workhouse or marooned in the ice with Shackleton.... For the last for 45 years, the arrival of John Julius Norwich´s latest Christmas Cracker has become as essential a part of the Christmas experience as holly and mistletoe. In An English Christmas, the legendary popular historian has finally gathered all the best writing about this strangest and most memorable time of year into one audiobook. Vividly evoking all the good things about the festive season, this unexpected anthology is just as entertaining about its darker aspects. Eight-year-old Princess Margaret´s thank-you list jostles with moving letters home from the trenches. Sherlock Holmes solves his trickiest case. George Orwell writes about indigestion, Jane Austen about reluctant socialising and Thomas Hardy about the old folk belief that all animals kneel at midnight on 24 December. There are ghost stories, games and bizarre recipes. Diary entries, recipes and letters sit alongside poems and short stories. An English Christmas could convert any Scrooge into an instant enthusiast. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Julius Norwich, Luke Thompson, Nicky Diss, Sandra Duncan, Gareth Armstrong.
