Five-year-old Joaquin isn't supposed to know anything about the world outside the protected environment where he has been reared. His mother is determined to insulate him from the clashes that took his father's life. But then his father's adoptive parent [note: ADOPTIVE parent, not an ADOPTED parent], Abdullah, enters his life. Later, Joaquin learns that his brilliant geography and history tutor, Senor De Guzman, is a converso; many conversos were Jews who were forcibly converted to Christianity. Joaquin discovers that the world he lives in is unsafe for anyone who is different. As time passes, Joaquin finds himself caught between faiths-the very fate that his mother feared, because the Inquisition does not tolerate dissension. Set in Spain starting at 1505 and continues as Joaquin matures, STOLEN FAITH is the sequel to STOLEN PEACE."
Few eras are so clearly associated with fashion as the Jazz Age. Clean, slim lines; elegance grounded in simplicity rather than ornament; and styles designed for the active lives of the men and women who wore them—nearly a century later, the styles of the era still thrill us. This book, accompanying an exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum, London, both celebrates Jazz Age fashion and helps us understand its context. While presenting beautiful images of classic works by such designers as Chanel, Patou, Lucile, Lanvin, Vionnet, Hartnell, and Molynuex, worn by stars and stunners like Clara Bow and Louise Brooks, it also shows us how the era’s fashion developed. Martin Pel traces the effects of the end of World War I, the rise of America, rapid changes in the lives and expectations of women, and technological breakthroughs like the introduction of Rayon and zippers. All played a part in the creation of an aesthetic that couldn’t have been farther from the buttoned-down, bustled-up clothing of the preceding generation. A testament to an era that marked the birth of the modern, and whose influence is still felt today, Jazz Age Fashion is an unforgettable document of an unforgettable age.
