A novel by the PEI-born, Halifax-residing author. "On a strangely warm day in January, Stella vanishes without a trace, leaving behind a young daughter and a husband bewilderedby her sudden absence. The police officially label her disappearance an ac cident, a drowning, Stella somehow slipping beneath the thin ice of a nearby river. As her mother Sonia clings to the remnants of her family, she begins to harbour a deepening suspicion that Stella's departure was no accident. With the deceptive drag of an undertow, the chaotic flotsam of misplaced dreams, bruised hopes and buried loves of Sonia's past wells up to overwhelm her. Confronted with her own history of ill-considered choices and failures, Sonia is compelled to revise her preconceptions of her daughter's life and dramatically alter the way she lives her own. A subtle draughtsman of character, Compton's powers of description, timing and revelation coalesce into a splendidly delicate account of one woman's present shaped by the unanticipated legacies of her past." - from the rear cover.

COMPTON-HALL, Richard. Submarine Warfare : Monsters & Midgets. Poole, Dorset: Blandford Press, (1985). First UK Printing. Pp. [1]-160. Illustrated. Triple column. 4to, blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "Submarine Warfare: The Monsters and Midgets takes a wholly new look at submarines, at bothextremes of the size scale. no other book has ever dealt so intimately wit h the extraordinary submarines, monstrous and miniature, of the past, nor related their experiences to the present and future. Practically all the material is drawn from original sources, and the author writes objectively about former enemies. Some of the legends, like those surrounding Bushnell's Turtle of 1776, have ievitably undergone thorough review. In many cases the truth about both monsters and midgets turns out to be very different from what history books have led readers to believe until now. On the other hand,full and overdue credit is at last given to a number of brave men, like th e commanding officer of the Japanese 'fly' which successfully attacked HMS Ramillies, whose explouts have not hitherto been fully recognised. Several supposed mysteries, including the sinking of the Surcouf, are unravelled and ghosts are finally laid to rest. Personalities are explored and, through them, the reasons for hitherto strange and unexplained failures, disasters and, indeed, successes become clear." - from the dj. Vg in price-clipped dj. 60.00

CONAN, Laure. Angéline de Montbrun : A Psychological Romance of Quebec. Translated and Introduced by Yves Brunelle. Toronto: University of Toronto Press, (1974). First thus printing. Pp. (6),vii-xxxiii,(3),3-169,(5). 8vo, orange cloth with black titles to spine. Literature of Canada: Poetry and Prose in Reprint series, number 14. General editor: Douglas Lochhead. "Laure Conan was the first woman novelist in French Canada and the first writer in all Canada to attempt a roman d'analyse. As she refused to have her true identity revealed, the author of the preface to her book, Abbé H.-R. Casgrain,made a point of confirming that it was indeed a woman hiding behind a pen- name. Her daring in writing a psychological novel was 'forgiven' because she was a woman, and her anticipating the trend towards this type of novel was attributed to 'that intuition natural to her sex.' In 'Angéline de Montbrun', Laure Conan broke with what has been called the 'collective romanticism' of nineteenth-century French-Canadian literature -- the preoccupation with the patriotic love of country and of land, with the rural myth, the exhortative tone, and the vast canvas. These concerns are basically absent in her work. Further, she eschewed the details of adventure and intrigue, the wooden, predictable characters, and the transparent intricacies of romantic love in favour of writing about the inner turmoil of an individual, live character, a young woman caught in a complex web of human appetites, aspirations, and relationships." - from the dustjacket.

11329 CONDON, Ann Gorman Envy of the American States : The Loyalist Dream for New Brunswick. First Edition

Colour Plates. Maps. Index. 8vo, illustrated yellow card covers. "The Envy of the American States: The Loyalist Dream for New Brunswick traces the extraordinary saga of the twenty most prominent Loyalist leaders of New Brunswick from their colonial origins throughthe American Revolution to the establishment of a new British colony in Ne w Brunswick which would be "the envy of the American states." The lives andpolitical ideals of Ward Chipman, Edward Winslow, Jonathan Odell, Gabriel and George Ludlow, John Saunders, Jonathan Sewell and many others are described collectively to reveal a common determination to preserve empire and liberty in North America. Ann Gorman Condon examines the political and social institutions these Loyalist leaders set up in New Brunswick, their efforts to maintain an aristocratic style life, and the fierce resentment these goals aroused among the less favored Loyalists and such political minoritiesas Blacks,Acadians, Indians, and old inhabitants. The result was a continu ing tension in New Brunswick public life which did preserve the empire in North America but had to give way internally to local self-government and democracy. Out of such creative ferment in Loyalist New Brunswick the book discovers important sources of Canadian nationalism, federalism, and above all Canada's distinctive form of political liberty."

At the height of her career she was the world's singer of singers and the toast of three continents; to this day she remains, relatively speaking, one of the highest-paid performers in music history." -from the dust jacket.

Enduring the harsh prison conditions with resourcefulness, Buddhist patience, andhumour, he searches for news and connection in every being and object that is grudgingly allowed into his cell. Despite his isolation, Teza has a pro found influence on the world of the cage. He inspires the conscience-riddensenior jailer to radical change. His very existence challenges the brutal authority of Handsome, the junior jailer. And then there's Little Brother, an orphan who’s grown up inside. Teza and the boy are prisoners of different orders, but their extraordinary friendship frees both of them in utterly surprising ways.” - from the back cover. Very good. 45.00
