Século XIX: status, vestidos pomposos, carruagens, bailes... Kathelyn Stanwell, a irresistível filha de um conde, seria a debutante perfeita, exceto pelo fato de que ela detesta a nobreza; é corajosa, idealista e geniosa. Nutre o sonho de ser livre para escolher o próprio destino, dentre eles inclui o de não se casar cedo. No entanto, em um baile de máscaras, um homem intrigante entra em cena... Arthur Harold é bonito, rico e obstinado. Supondo, por sua aparência, que ele não pertence ao seu mundo, a impulsiva Kathelyn o convida a entrar no jardim – passeio proibido para jovens damas. Nunca mais se veriam, ela estava segura disso. Entretanto, ele é o nono duque de Belmont, alguém bem diferente do homem que idealizava, só que, de um instante a outro, o que parecia a aventura de uma noite se transforma em uma paixão sem limites. Porém, a traição causada pela inveja e uma sucessão de mal-entendidos dão origem ao ciúme e muitas reviravoltas. Kathelyn será desafiada, não mais pelas regras sociais ou pelo direito de trilhar o próprio caminho, e, sim, pela única coisa capaz de vencer até mesmo a sua força de vontade e sua enorme teimosia: o seu coração.

But Juan Pablo quickly recognized that reaction entailed following in his father's footsteps--something neither he nor his father ever wanted. Their lives in immense danger, Juan Pablo, his mother, and his sister assumed new identities and fled to Argentina, where he would spend the next two decades grappling with his father's legacy. Now an architect and advocate of drug policy reform, Juan Pablo breaks his silence to tell his side of the story, shedding new light on the infamous kingpin--the man who was also his loving father"--

Spanning four generations and two very different cultures, it sweeps from the glittering palaces of the great maharajas of India to the majestic stately homes of England, following the extraordinary life of a girl, Anahita Chaval, from 1911 to the present day . . . In the heyday of the British Raj, eleven-year-old Anahita, from a noble but impoverished family, forms a lifelong friendship with the headstrong Princess Indira, the privileged daughter of rich Indian royalty. Becoming the princess's official companion, Anahita accompanies her friend to England just before the outbreak of the Great War. There, she meets the young Donald Astbury - reluctant heir to the magnificent, remote Astbury Estate - and his scheming mother. Eighty years later, Rebecca Bradley, a young American film star, has the world at her feet. But when her turbulent relationship with her equally famous boyfriend takes an unexpected turn, she's relieved that her latest role, playing a 1920s debutante, will take her away from the glare of publicity to the wilds of Dartmoor in England. Shortly after filming begins at the now-crumbling Astbury Hall, Ari Malik, Anahita's great-grandson, arrives unexpectedly, on a quest for his family's past. What he and Rebecca discover begins to unravel the dark secrets that haunt the Astbury dynasty . . .

The searing novel on which the internationally acclaimed hit film was based, City of God is a gritty, gorgeous tour de force from one of Brazil’s most notorious slums. Cidade de Deus: a place where the streets are awash with narcotics, where violence can erupt at any moment over drugs, money, and love—but also a place where the samba beat rocks till dawn, where the women are the most beautiful on earth, and where one young man wants to escape his background and become a photographer. When City of God erupted on screens worldwide, it became one of the most critically and commercially successful foreign films of recent years. But few were aware of the story behind the film. Written by Paulo Lins, who grew up in the favela (shantytown) Cidade de Deus in Rio e Janeiro and who spent years researching its gang history, City of God began life as a coruscating, harrowing novelistic account of twenty years in the illicit pursuits of the youth gangs born from the favela. Now available in English for the first time, City of God is a raw, powerful portrait of the countless millions of poor people all over the world.
