From three of the brightest stars in contemporary fiction comes a festive trio of romantic classics about an unforgettable family — and the enchanted heirloom that links one generation to the next. Christmas Past by Iris Johansen Killara, Arizona, 1893. Kevin Delaney doesn’t know what to make of the Gypsy beauty he finds rummaging in the attic of Killara, his family’s estate. She claims she’s there to recover an old mirror with extraordinary powers. While Kevin doesn’t believe her mystical talk, there’s no doubt a kind of magic is at work on his heart — just in time for Christmas. Christmas Present by Fayrene Preston Bria Delaney is at Killara for the holidays when she discovers a mirror that reveals more than her reflection. Appearing in the glass is a startlingly handsome man who just as mysteriously disappears — until she meets him in person that night, leading to a Christmas they’ll never forget. Christmas Future by Kay Hooper A heartbreaking vision in the legendary Delaney mirror drove Brett Delaney to the other side of the world. Now his father’s death bequeaths him the mirror, and its prophecy sends him back to Killara for Christmas, determined to save the home — and the woman — he’s always loved.
Vítame vás v Tammire, v malej dedinke uprostred tajomných hôr. Odohráva sa tam príbeh plný nevšedných ľudských osudov, nečakaných divov, šľachetných zvierat a čarovnej vŕby. Možno aj vy považujete vŕbu za strom, ktorému sa dá vyžalovať.
V Tammire je to trochu inak... Záhadné odkazy a zvláštne javy prebúdzajú zvedavosť a túžbu spoznávať svet za podivuhodnou žiarivou guľou, ktorá mení život mnohých ľudí. Až keď zrazu rozumiete, o čom sa rozprávajú zvieratá, zistíte, že ste svedkami niečoho nadprirodzeného. Stali ste sa priateľmi čarovnej vŕby. Kniha Kráľovná z Tammiru – Priatelia čarovnej vŕby je prvou zo série fantazijných príbehov mladého slovenského autora. Vladimír Štefanič je literárne nadaný katolícky kňaz, ktorý pôsobí na východnom Slovensku. Vo svojom diele pútavo prepletá osudy jednotlivých postáv a necháva veľký priestor fantázii čitateľa. Hneď v úvode sa prenesiete do malej zasneženej dedinky uprostred tajomných hôr, kde sa odohráva čarovný príbeh plný poetických až mystických obrazov a záhadných dialógov. Napriek dramatickosti je to kniha, ktorá pohladí dušu. Neponúka gýčovú romantiku, ale umožní vám snívať i premýšľať a bude vás prekvapovať až po poslednú stránku.

From an explanation of why Sheldon would think 73 is the best number, to an experiment involving the physical stature of Wolowitz women, to an argument refuting Sheldon’s assertion that engineers are the Oompa-Loompas of science, author Dave Zobel maintains a humorous and informative approach and gives readers enough knowledge to make them welcome on Sheldon’s couch.
