Two worlds. Two problems...and two attitudes. Addison Kane does not want for much. With a touch equaling that of Midas and a confidence overstepping the borders of arrogance, Addison's ability is vast, yet her focus is narrow. Her vision tunneled by haunting memories of her youth, she is blinded to the peripheral. She doesn't care that life is passing her by. She doesn't notice as friends fall to the wayside, and the finery that comes from wealth holds no importance for Addison is single-minded. Her goal is the ultimate of paybacks. She needs to succeed like no other before her and prove someone wrong. Joanna Sheppard lives a simple life because she can afford no other. At the age of seventeen, her father falls ill, and for the next eleven years, Joanna's sole focus is providing for the only parent she has ever known. For the man she loves with all her heart, she gives up her dreams and doesn't look back. She goes about her days with no complaints, working three jobs so she can pay off her father's creditors, but there is no light at the end of Joanna's tunnel...or so she thinks. When an edict from the grave threatens all Addison holds dear, two women from two different worlds are brought together, and a deal is struck. In exchange for uttering a few words, both get what they need...but not what they bargained for. There is a thin line, as they say, but when it is crossed, can love survive when more family secrets are revealed?

With a backdrop of World War II and its aftermath, in England in 1952, the peace of a usually quiet small village in the Chilterns is shattered when an eleven years old boy is the victim of a vicious attack. This triggers the memory of his working-class mother, a nurse at the local cottage hospital, and she thinks back to the terrible events of 1940 and their impact on village life. She wistfully reminisces about her son’s upper-middle-class father, a Spitfire pilot reported missing during the Battle of Britain. In addition to the difficulties and worries due to the war, the boy’s mother and grandmother have to cope with the class system, and the stigma of the boy’s illegitimacy. The people of the village are traumatized and shocked by the tragedy. They are fearful for the safety of their children. Will the guilty criminal strike again? The police are urgently trying to track him down. Can the village return to its erstwhile peace and quiet? The future alone can provide the answer.

Hong Kong is a meeting place for migrant domestic workers, traders, refugees, asylum seekers, tourists, businessmen, and local residents. In Born Out of Place, Nicole Constable looks at the experiences of Indonesian and Filipina women in this Asian world city. Giving voice to the stories of these migrant mothers, their South Asian, African, Chinese, and Western expatriate partners, and their Hong Kong–born babies, Constable raises a serious question: Do we regard migrants as people, or just as temporary workers? This accessible ethnography provides insight into global problems of mobility, family, and citizenship and points to the consequences, creative responses, melodramas, and tragedies of labor and migration policies.
