In a hospital bed, small-time private detective Ray Lovell veers between paralysis and delirium. But before the accident that landed him there, he’d been hired to find Rose Janko, the estranged daughter of a traveling Gypsy family, who went missing seven years earlier. Half Romany himself, Ray is well aware that he’s been chosen more for his blood than for his investigative skills. Still, he’s surprised by the intense hostility he encounters from the Jankos, who haven’t had an easy past. Touched by tragedy, they’re either cursed or hiding a terrible secret—the discovery of which Ray can’t help suspecting is connected to Rose’s disappearance… Seamlessly toggling between Ray’s past and present, and the perspective of the missing woman’s young nephew JJ, Stef Penney builds a gripping page-turner that doesn’t let go until its shocking end.

Maria is twelve years old and on her first trip away from her home state of New Hampshire. Her family feels it's time she learns about her Acadian roots and she has come to northern New Brunswick to stay with her cousin Guy, and his family. Among the odd things here is a mysterious Aunt Jeannette. Guy promises to uncover the secret of this mysterious woman. He claims she is the only Acadian psychic, able to see both the past and the future. Maria is plunged into a world she never knew existed. She learns how their ancestors were torn from their land and how a brave girl, just like herself, helps her people against their enemies by becoming a spy in the enemy leader's household. Helped by Indian friends, especially the tribe shaman and a wonderful spirit wolf, Marie defeats the evil Mr. Hill and escapes with her brother to build a new life.

First edition of an important collection of memoirs, from Febr. 1861 on, in the field of Tyndall's major work, the effects of solar and heat radiation on atmospheric gases (1860-1870). He then considered the scattering of light particles in the atmosphere (the Tyndall effect) and explained the blue color of the sky (Rayleigh scattering). The scattering of sunlight by dust particles led him to consider means of destroying airborne organic matter by heat . Tyndall is remembered chiefly for his efforts to verify the high absorptive and radiative power of aqueous vapor; to measure the absorption and transmission of heat by many different gasses and liquids . Practical applications of his work in meteorology, fog signaling, and bacteriology were seen within his lifetime. . (DSB).
