Whether in wartime or peace, tales of love, laughter and hardship from the girls in the Rowntrees factory in Yorkshire "On a warm Monday morning in 1932, just two days after leaving school, fourteen-year-old Madge was about to join her nine brothers and sisters at Rowntree's. The smell of chocolate was in the air but as she walked up the road, her footsteps slowed at the daunting thought of what lay aheadâ?¦" From the 1930s through to the 1980s, as Britain endured war, depression, hardship and strikes, the women at the Rowntree's factory in York kept the chocolates coming. This is the true story of The Sweethearts, the women who roasted the cocoa beans, piped the icing and packed the boxes that became gifts for lovers, snacks for workers and treats for children across the country.
More often than not, their working days provided welcome relief from bad husbands and bad housing, a community where they could find new confidence, friendship and when the supervisor wasn't looking, the occasional chocolate.

ویتگنشتاین فیلسوفی است که دو نگرش فلسفی اساساً متفاوت پدید آورده است . به تأیید همه آنهایی که در کنار این فیلسوف بوده اند ، زندگی وی با فلسفه اش گره خورده بود و این دو بر هم تأثیر می نهادند . ویتگنشتاین همیشه متحیر به نظر می رسید . حیرت او تنها در کلاس فلسفه نبود . وی در طول زندگی اش در همه جا و در مواجهه با همه چیز متحیر بود و فلسفه می ورزید . از قضا ، همین فیلسوفی که زندگی اش غرق در حیرت فلسفی بود در میان همه آن چیزهایی که آدمی برای خلوت خویش برمی گزیند از قبیل دین ، عرفان و .

Angala Hilton has one goal in life—to be the best doctor she can be.
Okay, and the smartest, too. But the wickedly handsome Griffin Craken is the one at the top of their class, and she can’t stand him. And then she stumbles on him healing someone. It’s not the miracles the doctor’s think it is.
Even worse, Griffin then heals Angala after a drunk driver plows into her car after a hospital fundraiser. But that’s not the worst of it. The next morning, Angala is the one to heal someone. Turns out, Griffin’s an Immortal, and she’s a witch. Now that she’s come into her powers, the ones who murdered her birth parents are after her. Maybe it’s a good thing Angala is starting to fall for Griffin. Or maybe not considering Angala should be solely focused on finding the killers before she ends up buried next to her parents…
We are all strangers in a strange land, longing for home, but not quite knowing what or where home is. We glimpse it sometimes in our dreams, or as we turn a corner, and suddenly there is a strange, sweet familiarity that vanishes almost as soon as it comes… –Madeleine L’Engle, from The Rock That Is Higher Story captures our hearts and feeds our imaginations. It reminds us who we are and where we came from. Story gives meaning and direction to our lives as we learn to see it as an affirmation of God’s love and truth–an acknowledgment of our longing for a rock in the midst of life’s wilderness. Drawing upon her own experiences, well-known tales in literature, and selected narratives from Scripture, Madeleine L’Engle gently leads the way into the glorious world of story in The Rock That Is Higher. Here she acknowledges universal human longings and considers how literature, Scripture, personal stories, and life experiences all point us toward our true home.
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.
