This two-book collection offers both books in the Domestic Violence Survivor series in one place:The iron fire-poker my boyfriend had used to attack me the night before had left light saber-like patterns all over my body. All purple and angry, bruises surrounded my split, bloodied skin that stung to the touch.I was on the floor as he was striking me with the poker, and I raised my legs up to protect myself, leaving me with crisscross patterns all over.My kneecaps and ankles stung and throbbed as the sheets of my bed brushed against them The fire poker had also been used to strike my top half, and the gargantuan bruises on my forearms showed that they took the brunt of it as I was trying to protect myself.The worst pain of all was reserved for my jaw and my head. I couldn't open my mouth, and the tin-like, metallic taste of blood swished around my mouth every time I moved my tongue. When I separated my mouth and tried to bite down, I realized that my jaw wasn't aligned - my teeth didn't fit together as they should. My jaw was jutting out to the right, and panic washed over me as I traced my finger down my new jawline. I could only imagine what my face looked like.I very slowly pulled myself up, trying to avoid the covers touching my legs too much. I'd experienced domestic violence many, many times before, and I always dreaded the look in the mirror the next day. Many times I'd been shocked at the monster glaring back at me....Book two, Domestic Violence Memoirs:This audiobook is a collection of real-life stories from victims of domestic abuse.As a survivor of domestic violence myself, I know that there's some comfort and strength to be gained from hearing about the events and situations that other people have gone through. To know you're not alone in how you're feeling whilst in an abusive relationship can feel like a God-send. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sangita Chauhan.

Oliver Twist - The Original Classic Edition
29,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Set in Victorian London, this is a tale of a spirited young innocents unwilling but inevitable recruitment into a scabrous gang of thieves. Masterminded by the loathsome Fagin, the underworld crew features some of Dickens most memorable characters, including the vicious Bill Sikes, gentle Nancy, and the juvenile pickpocket known as the Artful Dodger. This is a high quality book of the original classic edition. This is a freshly published edition of this culturally important work, which is now, at last, again available to you. Enjoy this classic work. These few paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside: Among other public buildings in a certain town, which for many reasons it will be prudent to refrain from mentioning, and to which I will assign no fictitious name, there is one anciently common to most towns, great or small: to wit, a workhouse; and in this workhouse was born; on a day and date which I need not trouble myself to repeat, inasmuch as it can be of no possible consequence to the reader, in this stage of the business at all events; the item of mortality whose name is prefixed to the head of this chapter. For a long time after it was ushered into this world of sorrow and trouble, by the parish surgeon, it remained a matter of considerable doubt whether the child would survive to bear any name at all; in which case it is somewhat more than probable that these memoirs would never have appeared; or, if they had, that being comprised within a couple of pages, they would have possessed the inestimable merit of being the most concise and faithful specimen of biography, extant in the literature of any age or country. Upon this, the parish authorities magnanimously and humanely resolved, that Oliver should be farmed, or, in other words, that he should be dispatched to a branch-workhouse some three miles off, where twenty or thirty other juvenile offenders against the poor-laws, rolled about the floor all day, without the inconvenience of too much food or too much clothing, under the parental superintendence of an elderly female, who received the culprits at and for the consideration of sevenpence-halfpenny per small head per week. Unfortunately for, the experimental philosophy of the female to whose protecting care Oliver Twist was delivered over, a similar result usually attended the operation of her system; for at the very moment when the child had contrived to exist upon the smallest possible portion of the weakest possible food, it did perversely happen in eight and a half cases out of ten, either that it sickened from want and cold, or fell into the fire from neglect, or got half-smothered by accident; in any one of which cases, the miserable little being was usually summoned into another world, and there gathered to the fathers it had never known in this. Oliver Twist and his companions suffered the tortures of slow starvation for three months: at last they got so voracious and wild with hunger, that one boy, who was tall for his age, and hadnt been used to that sort of thing (for his father had kept a small cook-shop), hinted darkly to his companions, that unless he had another basin of gruel per diem, he was afraid he might some night happen to eat the boy who slept next him, who happened to be a weakly youth of tender age.

Has Anyone Seen Alice?
17,99 € *
zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

A tense psychological thriller in the style of Stephen King, about corruption, betrayal, deception, revenge and murder where all crimes are punishable and you never quite know who the real victims and perpetrators are. With a good measure of suspense and mystery, this crime thriller involves complex characters with personal and professional agendas, an eager story hungry rookie reporter and a seasoned detective and of course the ultimate crime, everything seems to revolve around Alice. Who is she, and more importantly-Has anyone seen Alice? Gregg Newman's ambition to become the city's next Mayor had been threatened by his wife Alice. To keep her quiet, and with the collusion of the electoral committee, he had her removed and committed to a psychiatric facility. Now the latest polls showed him to be a certainty to be elected Mayor. However, three weeks before polling day, as he drove home from work, little did he know that his world was about to be turned upside down. Less than two hours after arriving at his home, he was found sitting on the floor of his bedroom, a half empty bottle of Johnny Walker beside him and the body of Angie, his babysitter, dead on the bed. He claimed that there had been a third party in the house. The police could find no evidence of anyone else having been there. For them it was an open and shut case. Detective Eddie McGrane, with the prompting of rookie TV reporter Shirley Green, set out to find Alice Newman who seemed to have disappeared into thin air. Was she involved and where was Alice Newman? Has anyone seen her?
