America s Queen

The definitive biography of Jackie Kennedy, by Britain's best royal biographer Jackie Kennedy was a twentieth-century icon of glamour, elegance and grace. As the beautiful young wife of President John F. Kennedy, she was adored, her style imitated across the world. But beneath the perfection of her public life lay contradiction, passion, and, all to often, tragedy. Sarah Bradford's brilliant new biography not only gives a fascinating account of her time with JFK, but also of her life after his assassination in 1963, in all its colour and controversy.

Queen Marie in America

Romanian Queen Marie's 10,000 mile North American train voyage was an epic journey. Invited to America in 1926 to inaugurate a strangely conceived and unfinished ?Maryhill Museum? located high on the treeless banks of the Columbia River, Americans would discover a magnetic and very modern woman; the Queen would discover an America bursting into the post-WW I era as a maturing world power. Her diary of that voyage, other first -person accounts, and numerous images, maps, and newspapers articles weave a rich one-of-a-kind tapestry of experiences, personalities, and events.

Dolley Madison

First Lady of the United States and America's "Queen of Hearts," Dolley Madison fashioned an unofficial role for herself in the new administration of the United States, helping to answer the nation's need for ceremony and leaving footprints for centuries of presidential wives to follow. Assisting her husband, James Madison, she helped to promote national unity, modeling a political behavior that stressed civility and empathy. Together, their approach fueled bipartisanship in a country still assembling a political identity. About the Lives of American Women series: selected and edited by renowned women's historian Carol Berkin, these brief biographies are designed for use in undergraduate courses. Rather than a comprehensive approach, each biography focuses instead on a particular aspect of a women's life that is emblematic of her time, or which made her a pivotal figure in the era. The emphasis is on a 'good read', featuring accessible writing and compelling narratives, without sacrificing sound scholarship and academic integrity. Primary sources at the end of each biography reveal the subject's perspective in her own words. Study questions and an annotated bibliography support the student reader.

Millie Dunbrook a young and unproven private investigator badly in need of steady work has been hired to perform some exploration into a few strange yet minor incidents aboard a Caribbean cruise liner. Jack Hauser a man still stinging from the recent departure of his wife and daughter is simply another passenger trying to enjoy a relaxing cruise while searching for some personal answers in hope of finding new meaning to his life. Two other passengers have a completely different agenda, however. Neither Millie nor Jack, in their wildest dreams or nightmares, ever expected this cruise to be the ultimate target of an improbable plot, devised to completely destroy the boat and everyone aboard if the ransom demands aren't met. What results is an amazing nautical game of terror as the ship and passengers sail unknowingly toward an approaching death.

Queen of America

At turns heartbreaking, uplifting, fiercely romantic, and riotously funny, QUEEN OF AMERICA tells the unforgettable story of a young woman coming of age and finding her place in a new world. Beginning where Luis Alberto Urrea's bestselling The Hummingbird's Daughter left off, QUEEN OF AMERICA finds young Teresita Urrea, beloved healer and "Saint of Cabora," with her father in 1892 Arizona. But, besieged by pilgrims in desperate need of her healing powers, and pursued by assassins, she has no choice but to flee the borderlands and embark on an extraordinary journey into the heart of turn-of-the-century America. Teresita's passage will take her to New York, San Francisco, and St. Louis, where she will encounter European royalty, Cuban poets, beauty queens, anxious immigrants and grand tycoons-and, among them, a man who will force Teresita to finally ask herself the ultimate question: is a saint allowed to fall in love?
