Erschüttert von der Wucht der Trauer wird der Kindheitstraum in ihr wach, ihren eigenen Habicht aufzuziehen und zu zähmen. Und so zieht das stolze Habichtweibchen Mabel bei ihr ein. Durch die intensive Beschäftigung mit dem Tier entwickelt sich eine konzentrierte Nähe zwischen den beiden, die tröstend und heilend wirkt. Doch Mabel ist nicht irgendein Tier. Mabel ist ein Greifvogel. Mabel tötet. »Um einen Greifvogel abzurichten, muss man ihn wie einen Greifvogel beobachten, erst dann kann man vorhersagen, was er als Nächstes tun wird. Schließlich sieht man die Körpersprache des Vogels gar nicht mehr – man scheint zu fühlen, was der Vogel fühlt. Die Wahrnehmung des Vogels wird zur eigenen. Als die Tage in dem abgedunkelten Raum vergingen und ich mich immer mehr in den Habicht hineinversetzte, schmolz mein Menschsein von mir ab.« Helen Macdonald Ein Buch über die Erinnerung, über Natur und Freiheit - und über das Glück, sich einer großen Aufgabe von ganzem Herzen zu widmen. »[Macdonalds] anschaulicher Stil – verblüffend und außerordentlich präzise – ist nur ein Teil dessen, was dieses Buch ausmacht. Die Geschichte vom Abrichten Mabels liest sich wie ein Thriller. Die allmählich und behutsam anwachsende Spannung lässt den Atem stocken ...

Download and read online Das Seelenhaus in PDF and EPUB "Sie sagen, ich soll sterben. Sie sagen, ich hätte Männern den Atem gestohlen und jetzt müssten sie mir den meinen stehlen." Island 1828. Agnes ist eine selbstbewusste und verschlossene Frau. Sie wird als hart ­arbeitende Magd respektiert, was sie denkt und fühlt, behält sie für sich. Als sie des Mordes an zwei Männern angeklagt wird, ist sie allein. Die Zeit bis zur Hinrichtung soll sie auf dem Hof eines Beamten verbringen. Die Familie ist außer sich, eine Mörderin beherbergen zu müssen – bis Agnes Stück um Stück die Geschichte ihres Lebens preisgibt. Die Tat war grausam: zwei Männer erschlagen, erstochen und verbrannt. Die angeblichen Täter, neben Agnes Magnúsdóttir ein junges Paar, werden zum Tode verurteilt. Vor allem an Agnes will der zuständige Landrat ein Exempel statuieren. Scheinbar ungerührt nimmt Agnes das Urteil hin, ebenso wie die Ablehnung der Familie. Erleichtert, dem Kerker entkommen zu sein, kann sie bei der Arbeit manchmal ihr Schicksal vergessen. Vieles hier ist ihr vertraut: die schroffe Landschaft, die ärmliche Torfbehausung, der harsche Ton der Hausherrin. Ihr ganzes Leben war davon bestimmt – bis sie einen Mann kennenlernte und sich nach langer Zeit erlaubte, sich ihre Sehnsucht nach Liebe und Zugehörig­keit einzugestehen. Der Schmerz über seinen Tod, der ihr nun angelastet wird, überlagert alles, auch die Angst vor dem eigenen Tod. Schließlich vertraut sich Agnes einem jungen Vikar an, der sie auf den Weg der Reue und Buße führen soll. Während der langen Gespräche, die die ganze Familie mithört, ist es vor allem Margrét, die Hausherrin, die ahnt, dass die offizielle Wahrheit über Agnes vielleicht falsch sein könnte.

But before long the only map he wants is one that shows him the way to Viola’s heart… Hot Rogue on a Cold Night by Maya Rodale Jilted by a duke: Lady Serena Cavendish was born and bred to be a duchess. Too bad, then, that the Duke of Frye mysteriously and suddenly ended their betrothal. Seduced by a Rogue: Greyson Jones, an agent of the crown, is the only one who thinks being jilted has made Serena more alluring. When he lucks into an invitation to a Christmas house party at Kingstag Castle to cheer her up—and perhaps find her a husband—he seizes the opportunity to win her heart before they might be parted forever. On the way to the altar: Their journey to happily ever after involves a ridiculous play, a lovesick swan, a mysterious gift and, of course, a kiss. Snowy Night with a Duke by Katharine Ashe The last time Lady Charlotte Ascot bumped into the Duke of Frye, she climbed a tree to avoid him. Sometimes it’s simply easier to run away than to face her feelings for him — overwhelmingly passionate feelings that no modest lady should have! Now, on her way to Kingstag Castle to celebrate the holidays with friends, Charlotte is trapped by a snowstorm at a tiny country inn with the duke of her steamiest dreams. But Frye has a secret of his own, and Christmas is the ideal time to finally tell the woman he’s always wanted the whole unvarnished truth. Better yet, he’ll show her...
