Charles Dickens and Nelly Ternan met in 1857; she was 18, a hard-working actress performing in his production of The Frozen Deep, and he was 45, the most lionized writer in England. Out of their meeting came a love affair that lasted thirteen years and destroyed Dickens’s marriage while effacing Nelly Ternan from the public record. In this remarkable work of biography and scholarly reconstruction, the acclaimed biographer of Mary Wollstonecraft, Thomas Hardy, Samuel Pepys and Jane Austen rescues Nelly from the shadows of history, not only returning the neglected actress to her rightful place, but also providing a compelling portrait of the great Victorian novelist himself. The result is a thrilling literary detective story and a deeply compassionate work that encompasses all those women who were exiled from the warm, well-lighted parlors of Victorian England.

“An extraordinary profile of immense courage and daring.”—Chanel Cleeton, New York Times bestselling author of Before We Left Cuba “If you only read one WWII book this year, make it this one."—Natasha Lester, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Orphans In the depths of war, she would defy the odds to help liberate a nation…a gripping historical novel based on the remarkable true story of World War II heroine Virginia Hall, from the bestselling author of Hemingway’s Girl France, March 1944. Virginia Hall wasn't like the other young society women back home in Baltimore—she never wanted the debutante ball or silk gloves. Instead, she traded a safe life for adventure in Europe, and when her beloved second home is thrust into the dark days of war, she leaps in headfirst. Once she's recruited as an Allied spy, subverting the Nazis becomes her calling. But even the most cunning agent can be bested, and in wartime trusting the wrong person can prove fatal. Virginia is haunted every day by the betrayal that ravaged her first operation, and will do everything in her power to avenge the brave people she lost. While her future is anything but certain, this time more than ever Virginia knows that failure is not an option. Especially when she discovers what—and whom—she's truly protecting.

‘Stylish and wittily written ... a brilliant read that should encourage us all to challenge the cult of youth, and learn to love ourselves a little more along the way.’ My Weekly There’s nothing middle-of-the-road about middle age. From coping with bodies that are ‘heading south’ to rampant ageism in the workplace, this time in our lives, in the words of Bette Davis, ‘is no place for sissies’. From family, finances and work to cosmetics, fashion and sex, 60-year-old Helen Walmsley-Johnson – the irrepressible voice behind the much-loved Guardian column ‘The Vintage Years’ – shows, with warmth and a wicked sense of humour, how we can reinvent middle age for the next generation of women.

This book explores the way older women are represented in society. Through close readings of novels by major 20th century novelists, compared with the more dominant representations of female ageing to be found in popular culture it suggests that they offer a feminist understanding of the 'invisible' woman sometimes lacking in feminism itself.

Joanne Belknap's The Invisible Woman: Gender, Crime, and Justice fifth edition offers a thorough exploration of the historical and current issues regarding women's and girls' victimization and offending, as well as women's entry into the professions of and current day experiences of judges, lawyers, police officers, and correctional officers. Working to counter the invisibility of women in these areas, the text commits to a strong feminist perspective that incorporates current research, theory, offending, victimization, the practitioner experience, and the intersections of sexism with racism, classism and other types of oppression.

The story of an African American woman's struggle with physical and emotional abuse. I purposely wrote this book raw. It's written in bad Grammer,and a lot of slang. I wanted to reach women like myself. Women who are so focused on survival we forget to address our mental health. We endure so much, and the world expects us to keep going. How we sometimes let the opinion of other's become the opinion of ourselves. We then get this idea that by blocking our emotions we're being strong. This story will make you question am I being resilient, or am I slowly dying? CiCi found out the hard way that a life without feeling is a life without meaning. I hope sharing my story will inspire someone to seek help. That it's ok not to have all the answers, it's ok to fall apart when life gets you down. What's not ok, is continuing to stay down once you've fallen. It's not ok to live life without purpose. To live is to love. We must first learn to love ourselves in order to live. It's ok to seek help. Most of my adult life I had to reevaluate the behaviors I was by people who didn't have their shit together. For once in my life I want to live! I will no longer be Invisible to myself. Simple me... Simply Fi.👑🌻
