Millie Bird ist sieben, als sie ihr erstes totes Ding findet, Rambo, ihren Hund. Von da an führt sie Buch über alles, was auf der Welt verloren geht: die Stubenfliege. Die Großmutter. Der Weihnachtsbaum. Darauf, dass sie auch ihren Dad in ihr Buch der Toten Dinge eintragen muss, war sie überhaupt nicht vorbereitet, und auch nicht darauf, dass ihre Mom sie im Kaufhaus stehen lässt und nicht wiederkommt. Karl ist siebenundachtzig, als sein Sohn ihn ins Altersheim bringt. Hier wird er nicht bleiben, denkt Karl, als er seinem Sohn nachschaut, und kurz darauf haut er ab. Erst mal ins Kaufhaus, bis sich was Besseres findet. Dort trifft er Millie. Agatha ist zweiundachtzig und geht nicht mehr aus dem Haus, seit ihr Mann gestorben ist. Halb versteckt hinter Gardine und Efeu, sitzt sie am Küchen fenster und beschimpft die Passanten. Bis das kleine Mädchen von gegenüber zurückkommt, allein ... Von Verlust und Trauer erzählt Brooke Davis in diesem berührenden Roman – und zugleich von einem Abenteuer voll furiosem Witz: Wie drei, die unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten, aufbrechen, um Millies Mutter zu suchen, und dabei zurück ins Leben und die Liebe finden.

Vom alten England in die Straßencafés von Paris, über das in der Augusthitze flirrende Korsika bis ins pulsierende New York führt uns diese fesselnde Familiensaga. Sie erzählt von der Macht der wahren Liebe über Jahrzehnte, Kontinente und Generationen hinweg – und davon, wie Herzen und Familien gerade dann miteinander vereint werden, wenn sie für immer verloren scheinen. England, 1928: Alice und Tom kennen sich aus unbeschwerten Kindertagen: sie, die vor Energie sprühende junge Aristokratin, und er, der noch unbekannte Maler. Ihre Liebe fühlt sich an wie die reinste Magie – doch nicht nur Alices Familie setzt alles daran, eine gemeinsame Zukunft zu verhindern. London, sechzig Jahre später: Die junge Fotografin Kate findet im Nachlass ihrer Großmutter eine alte Porträt-Skizze, die ihrer verstorbenen Mutter verblüffend ähnlich sieht. Was hat es mit der Zeichnung auf sich? Und wer ist die Frau darauf? Um dem Geheimnis um das Porträt und um die Vergangenheit ihrer Mutter näher zu kommen, macht sich Kate auf die Suche nach dem Künstler, dem berühmten Maler Thomas Stafford ... Die Stunde der Liebenden erzählt von Sehnsucht und Hoffnung, von Verlust und Schmerz, von Abenteuer und Freiheit. Davon, aus Konventionen auszubrechen und den Mut zu finden, seine Ängste zu überwinden. Und vor allem von Liebe und Nähe, die man zulassen muss, um sein Glück im Leben zu finden.

Aušra Paulauskiene's book Lost and Found: The Discovery of Lithuania in American Fiction targets American as well as European scholars in the fields of literature, ethnic studies and immigration. The author discovers obscure texts on Lithuania and alerts Western and Eastern academia to their significance as well as the reasons for their neglect. For the first time, Abraham Cahan's autobiographyThe Education of Abraham Cahan and Ezra Brudno's autobiographical novel The Fugitive receive an extensive coverage, while Goldie Stone's My Caravan of Years and Margaret Seebach'sThat Man Donaleitis (sic) receive their first scholarly consideration ever. The author argues that misrepresentations, misattributions and exclusions of Lithuanian legacy in the U.S. were produced by major political events of the twentieth century.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Geowissenschaften / Geographie - Didaktik d. Geographie, Universitat Bremen, 17 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Indien - Land der Gegensatze und Paradebeispiel fur Armut, Polarisierung, Ungleichheit und Kinderarbeit. So erheben auch der Film Die verlorene Brieftasche. Lost and Found" sowie die beigefugten Unterrichtsmaterialien den Anspruch, die Problematik der Kinderarbeit zu thematisieren und die Schulerinnen und Schuler zu einer Auseinandersetzung mit dieser Problematik anzuregen. Aber ist Kinderarbeit das Hauptthema des Films? Wird nicht vielmehr die Uberheblichkeit der Erwachsenen gegenuber den Kindern in den Vordergrund gestellt? Warum also beziehen sich die Unterrichtsvorschlage hauptsachlich auf Kinderarbeit und nicht auf das Verhaltnis zwischen Erwachsenen und Kindern bzw. zwischen der armen und der reichen Bevolkerungsschicht? Die vorliegende Hausarbeit analysiert die von der Fachstelle Filme fur eine Welt" (Hrsg.) erstellten Unterrichtsvorschlage und hinterfragt ihre Anwendbarkeit fur den Geographieunterricht. Zudem werden Alternativvorschlage entwickelt, die gegebenenfalls besser geeignet sind, den Schulerinnen und Schulern das Hauptanliegen sowie weitere Themen des Films zu vermitteln."

Sisters Anna and Sara must rely on each other for strength as they face being separated by the foster care system in this heartwrenching tale of sisterhood, family, and survival. Sara and Anna Olsen face an uncertain world. Their mother left home and may—or may not—be coming back. Their father is a drummer in a band and comes home long after the girls go to sleep—if he comes home at all. Too often, ten-year-old Sara and twelve-year-old Anna are left to fend for themselves. Then one night, three loud knocks at the door change everything: their father is in jail and social services has come to take the girls away. Rather than risk being split up, Sara and Anna decide their only option is to run away. But the girls don’t get very far, and when the authorities catch up with them, Sara and Anna are forced back into the foster care system. Along the way, the girls encounter good people who want to help them but they also meet people who have no patience for mistakes or accidents. As Anna begins to act out or withdraw completely, Sara knows that it’s up to her to take care of her older sister. But what if she can’t anymore? What if she finds a forever home that may not include Anna? Will Sara keep the promise she made to her mother to stay with her sister or will she find the courage to do what’s best for herself? In a starred review VOYA said “Sara’s story will tug at heart strings; Readers will cheer for her to succeed.” Inspired by true events, this heartrending and hopeful novel of survival, friendship, and sisterhood, tells the tale of two sisters who must find the strength to face anything that life may throw their way.

Jemma Macera is a poet, author, and social activist living in Ithaca, New York. Her story reflects a first half of life with challenges that contributed to physical and emotional pain, and resulting symptoms of dementia in the second half of her life. Living in Ithaca provided her with ample alternative therapists and a supportive community that enabled her to find a healing path. Jemma attributes her high level of functionality to following the shaman's journey to wellness through singing, dancing, and storytelling, as well as to the generosity of many friends and healers. Her journey to wellness is the result of trusting the superior wisdom of the body and the unconscious mind over a disabled brain. Jemma lives with her life partner Walter, in her family home, and continues to enjoy square dancing, music, and singing with friends.
