Chance is a cyborg with a secret. If the wrong people find her, she’ll lose her shot at having the life she dreams of – or any life at all. She’s come to the Drift looking for allies, but when she meets Erik, she discovers he can offer her more than safety. He’s her chance at happiness, too.

The purpose of this Paperback is to start a debate about the real problem of how we should educate our young people. It is based on the book Chance of a Lifetime: How the other half loses by Jonathan Langdale and John Harrison. To be winners today, young people have to be good at school (or very lucky). Clearly, a great many of them aren t good at school, but we believe they are all good at something. Because the Great and the Good became the Great and the Good because they were good at school, the received wisdom is that their kind of academic schooling is good for everyone it must be! Look how successful they are! Thus the best schools must be facsimiles of their schools and schoolchildren must all be judged by their standards the gold standards of GCSE A*-C and A Levels followed by university. If only everyone was as academically clever as they are, wouldn t the world be a better place? And the children who fail at their kind of schooling are just that failures. Over the years we have blamed the failure of secondary education on: The governors The head teachers The teachers and above all The pupils. Chance of a Lifetime shows that: It isn t the governors It isn t the head teachers It isn t the teachers and It certainly isn t the pupils It s the academically focussed secondary school itself.
The novel is filled with interesting characters such as an old squatter at their mountain cabin and other displaced people, as well as an unscrupulous developer that has his eye on their new mountain home.

An electrifying tale of love and adventure in the Wild West from a writer who “can always be counted on to deliver a moving, tender romance” (Affaire de Coeur). Fort Davis, Department of Texas, 1868. Sabrina Bolton’s life is marked by terrible guilt: her twin sister’s death when they were five left their mother in a perpetual state of melancholy. Now she barely speaks to Sabrina except to admonish her. Fourteen years later, Sabrina wants more. She wants romance. And she cannot summon one tender feeling for the suitor her mother has chosen for her. Then Tremayne rides onto Fort Davis. Reared by Apaches after his parents were murdered, he considers himself an outcast in both worlds. To him, all white-eyes women are witless. As if to prove the point, he almost runs down a fiery-haired woman who has wandered into the street and tripped on her skirts. He helps her stand, and from that moment he finds no peace unless he is with Sabrina. Tremayne knows he must eventually leave her, before she becomes an outcast, too. But once the heart has found its true desire, can it ever let go? “Vaughan possesses a remarkable command of place and sensation. Readers will feel the whalebone stays digging into Sabrina’s sides as her mother laces her to fit a too-tight gown.” —Crescent Blues Book Views

AN ENGAGING INSIDER'S ACCOUNT OF SOME OF THE MOST FASCINATING DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL EPISODES IN CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN HISTORY, FROM THE HIGHLY RESPECTED FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE WHO REMAINS A DEMOCRATIC ELDER STATESMAN. Warren Christopher is that rarest of Washington personalities: a wise and witty public servant once described by the Washington Post as "the antithesis of the glitz-hungry, self-aggrandizing, corner-cutting political figures who dominate Washington today." In this memoir, the man whose sage counsel and sometimes parodied discretion brought him to the right hand of mayors, governors, and presidents, shares his personal recollections and impressions of leaders and events that shaped the second half of the twentieth century. Writing in tightly crafted, often self-effacing prose, Christopher chronicles how he left the privacy of life at a premier law firm to heed calls to public service from Supreme Court justice William O. Douglas, Los Angeles mayor Tom Bradley, and California governor Edmund "Pat" Brown -- as well as presidents Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter, and Bill Clinton. Throughout his career, Christopher faced diverse challenges: he advised a president on whether to dispatch federal troops to quell civil disturbances; led negotiations to free American hostages in Iran; investigated a major city's police force gone awry; and helped cope with Yitzhak Rabin's assassination. From "Starting from Scranton" and "The Johnson Treatment" to "Middle East: Antipodes" and "Yesterday a War, Today a Country," each chapter is a compelling story on its own. Together, they offer the first clear picture of the impact of this quiet North Dakotan on modern American history.
