Adam Goodfellow and Nicole Golding run a stable in the Cotswolds and specialise in curing problem horses. It's never an easy task, and often requires changing the habits of the owner as much as the horse. The pair have travelled a long way to get where they are today - but they've been united by a common passion. After a chance meeting with Monty Roberts, they gave up everything to live out their dreams and show that it's possible for ordinary people to become 'horse whisperers'. Their world is extraordinary, particularly through their unusual methods of teaching, and as you meet the cast of characters, both animals and humans, that surround them, you'll find it impossible not to be won over by their life.

Rudyard Kipling was a major figure of English literature, who used the full power and intensity of his imagination and his writing ability in his excursions into fantasy. Kipling, one of England's greatest writers, was born in Bombay. He was educated in England, but returned to India in 1882. He began writing fantasy and supernatural stories set in his native continent, such as 'The Phantom Rickshaw' and 'The Strange Ride of Morrowbie Jukes', and his most famous weird story is 'The Mark of the Beast' (1890), about a man cursed to transform into a were-leopard. This Masterwork, edited by Stephen Jones, Britain's most accomplished and acclaimed anthologist, collects all Kipling's weird fiction for the first time; the stories range from traditional ghostly tales to psychological horror.

Miranda Brehault's free and happy childhood at Moondance, a crumbling old house on the edge of Dartmoor, comes to an abrupt end when she is left orphaned and penniless at the age of ten. Moondance's new owner, Theophilus Crowe, promises to take care of her, but instead he dispatches her to a cotton mill in Derbyshire. Conditions at Crossbank Mill are harsh and pitiless; Miranda and the other pauper children are little more than prisoners. Desperate to escape, Miranda and her friend Biddie run away, helped by the mill master's young wife Caroline and by Caroline's rebellious cousin, Kit Warrener, who escorts the girls to Furze House on the south coast of Devon. As she grows to womanhood there amongst new friends, Miranda dreams of returning to Moondance, and of taking revenge on the man who ruined her childhood. Her growing attraction to Kit, who has become caught up in the smuggling trade, cannot distract her from her true goal. But will she choose revenge and Moondance over true love?

The second book in Philippa's stunning new series, The Cousins War, brings to life the story of Margaret Beaufort, a shadowy and mysterious character in the first book of the series - The White Queen - but who now takes centre stage in the bitter struggle of The War of the Roses. The Red Queentells the story of the child-bride of Edmund Tudor, who, although widowed in her early teens, uses her determination of character and wily plotting to infiltrate the house of York under the guise of loyal friend and servant, undermine the support for Richard III and ultimately ensure that her only son, Henry Tudor, triumphs as King of England. Through collaboration with the dowager Queen Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret agrees a betrothal between Henry and Elizabeth's daughter, thereby uniting the families and resolving the Cousins War once and for all by founding of the Tudor dynasty.

Michael Morpurgos Geschichte von Freundschaft und Krieg, mit Bildern aus dem Film von Steven Spielberg "Es gibt also keinen Weg?", fragte Albert. "Ich kann nichts tun?" "Nichts", sagte Captain Nicholls. "Dein Pferd gehört jetzt der Armee und du bist zu jung, um dich einzuschreiben. Mach dir keine Sorgen - wir kümmern uns um Joey. Ich selbst werde ein Auge auf ihn haben, das verspreche ich dir." "Gefährten" erzählt die bewegende Geschichte des Pferdes Joey, das 1914 an die Armee verkauft wird. Joey erlebt an vorderster Front die Schrecken des Ersten Weltkrieges, doch auch in den schwersten Stunden berührt er mit seinem Mut und seiner Zähigkeit die Menschen um ihn herum.
