Willoughby   s Return

A lost love returns, rekindling forgotten passions… In Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, when Marianne Dashwood marries Colonel Brandon, she puts her heartbreak over dashing scoundrel John Willoughby in the past. Three years later, Willoughby's return throws Marianne into a tizzy of painful memories and exquisite feelings of uncertainty. Willoughby is as charming, as roguish, and as much in love with her as ever. And the timing couldn't be worse—with Colonel Brandon away and Willoughby determined to win her back, will Marianne find the strength to save her marriage, or will the temptation of a previous love be too powerful to resist? Praise for Lydia Bennet's Story: "A breathtaking Regency romp!"— Diana Birchall, author of Mrs. Darcy's Dilemma "An absolute delight to read."— Historical Novels Review "Odiwe emulates Austen's famous wit, and manages to give Lydia a happily-ever-after ending worthy of any Regency romance heroine."— Booklist "Odiwe pays nice homage to Austen's stylings and endears the reader to the formerly secondary character, spoiled and impulsive Lydia Bennet."— Publisher's Weekly "Rollicking good fun with a surprise twist."— Austenprose

The Birth of the Village of Liberta  Antigua

Antigua: a tiny island in the Caribbean. Like so many others, it was host to slavery. This is the true story of the Africans enslaved on Antigua, on the plantations in and around the village of Liberta before it was formed. Dehumanized, unchurched, and worked like animals, they suffered like all other slaves in the New World.There came to the island a group of Moravian missionaries, who worked with the slaves of the plantations in the years of their oppression. While teaching Christianity, these missionaries strived to create better conditions for the blacks. Then, in 1834, came emancipation, and the village of Liberta was born. This is the story of black Antiguans' progress from slavery to freedom, and the transformation of a slave culture into a free society--a culturally, socially, and economically thriving community. With details on many of the historical sites, this is a story of survival, hope, and liberation.ABOUT THE AUTHORHewlester A. Samuel was born in Liberta Village, Antigua. He has always had an avid interest in history, in particular the history of his home island. He has scoured many history books and researched artifacts that date back to the beginning of slavery.Samuel attended Libertan public schools, then attended the West Indies School of Theology in Trinidad. He currently resides in Miami, Florida with his wife Anita and their three children. A retired real estate broker, he also served as a pastor for over fifty years.

He was born at the family seat of Middleton, in Warwickshire, on 22 November 1635, the only son of Sir Francis Willoughby (1590–1665) and his wife Cassandra (c. 1600–1675). He had two elder sisters; Lettice, who married Sir Thomas Wendy ...

Francis Willughby s Book of Games

Francis Willughby's Book of Games, published here for the first time, is a remarkable work and an invaluable resource for anyone with an interest in early modern social history. Dating from the 1660s, it was left unfinished when the writer died in 1672 at the age of 36. Nevertheless, Willughby's manuscript, even in its unpolished form is a goldmine of detail providing a snapshot of mid seventeenth century life, language and culture. The manuscript itself lists a wide variety of sports, games and pastimes, including football, hurling, card games, tennis and children's games. As well as providing rules and a description of the various games (often with accompanying sketches to explain particular points) there are numerous fascinating snippets of related information (such as the care of fighting cocks), that bring the subject to life, whilst the section on children's games is particularly poignant. Besides the intrinsic interest of the subject matter, the fact that Willughby embarked on the project from a scientific perspective adds to the value of the book. Willughby had been admitted to the Royal Society in 1661 and for a number of years prior to that had been collaborating with the naturalist John Ray. It is clear that Willughby's Book of Games was highly influenced by his scientific pursuits and was an extension of his natural history work, utilising the same skills of systematic observation, description and classification. Providing not only a word-for word transcription of the Book of Games, this volume also contains a host of interpretative material to complement the original data. As well as a biography of Willughby and a detailed description of his manuscript, a substantial glossary of games and obsolete terms is provided, together with a bibliography of Willughby's literary remains and more general reference works. Taken together, this publication provides an unparalleled resource for scholars of early modern England.
