A S Byatt's fairy tales and fables are among the best-loved features of her fiction. Innumerable readers have asked for the two marvellous fairy tales in POSSESSION - 'The Glass Coffin' and 'Gode's Tale' of the Breton Naie des Trepasses - to be published seperately. Here they take their place with three other stories with medieval and oriental settings. The title story, 'The Djinn and the Nightingale's Eye', a long story about an Englishwoman in Turkey who unwittingly releases a genie from his bottle, is a reflection on women's lives, on magic and on the power of storytelling itself.

A #1 New York Times bestseller, Wall Street Journal Best Book of the Year, and soon to be a major motion picture, this unforgettable novel of love and strength in the face of war has enthralled a generation. With courage, grace, and powerful insight, bestselling author Kristin Hannah captures the epic panorama of World War II and illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen: the women's war. The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France—a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women.

An inspirational and challenging true story of one woman's faith, so strong it could not be broken even in the face of imprisonment and torture. Song of the Nightingale is the true story of Helen Berhane, held captive for over two years in appalling conditions in her native Eritrea. Her crime? Sharing her faith in Jesus, and refusing, even though horrendously tortured, to deny him. A sobering, painful, heart-rending account of true faith in the face of evil, this book makes for uncomfortable and yet inspirational reading. Helen says, 'I want to give a message to those of you who are Christians and live in the free world: You must not take your freedom for granted. If I could sing in prison, imagine what you can do for God's glory with your freedom.' A real challenge for the church in the West.

When Cassie Rosse becomes the first woman to train an English Derby winner, with her home-bred horse The Nightingale, she has every right to believe that success is hers at last. Indeed, as she leads in her winner and raises her eyes to heaven, calling to her dead love Tyrone 'We did it!', she knows that this success is as much Tyrone's as it is hers. For it was to his Irish family home of Claremore that he brought Cassie as a young bride, and it is from Claremore that Cassie has at last stormed home to win a place in the history books. Now all she has to do is enjoy her success and retire The Nightingale, since, as a stallion, he is worth millions to her. But life will never be simple for Cassie Rosse, not just because she is unable to move out from the long shadows cast by the early death of her husband, nor because she has an indomitable will to win, but because she has integrity. Against all advice, therefore, she decides to keep The Nightingale in training and race him as a four-year-old, a decision that triggers a set of circumstances which quickly turn her brilliant triumph into a nightmare. Soon it seems that nothing can reverse the downward spiral of events surrounding her famous horse and its future. It has always been hard for Cassie to stand alone in what is essentially a man's world, but now, with her attentions torn between two extraordinary but very different men and even her family turning against her, she will have to battle hard to keep Claremore, and with it her past with Tyrone and everything that makes her life worthwhile.

The first in a trilogy highlighting caregiving as a demanding, yet rewarding, profession that forces work-life imbalance, The Nightingale Gene provides lessons for those who make caring for others a priority over taking care of themselves. By the year 2020, the United States will experience a shortage of more than 1 million nurses as baby boomers in the profession retire and hospitals struggle to keep up with supply and demand as the boomer-aging population stresses the already overtaxed staff. Nurses account for more than 75% of the employees in a hospital, but new nurses continue to seek other less stressful careers, remaining in their positions an average of only 6 months, citing poor management and burnout as reasons for leaving. The profession gives nurses both high reward and intense stress. The demand to find, train, and retain quality staff has never been more urgent than now. The Nightingale Gene provides nurses and healthcare leaders with lessons that address the obvious recruiting and retention demands they face today, focusing first on their own issues and then trickling down to staff. Jayne Van Brunt addresses why nurses and healthcare leaders are wired to hover over everyone else while ignoring their own desires, featuring themes of self-help, self-love, and forgiveness while presenting an easy formula to implement and intentional work-life plan to make nursing and other caregiving professions rewarding again. Written in lyrical fashion, The Nightingale Gene tells the story of one woman’s transformational journey and the lessons she learned along her way back to living in balance.

He has love in his heart and death at his fingertips . . . The first novel in the epic Tales of the Otori series, Across the Nightingale Floor is followed by Grass For His Pillow and Brilliance of the Moon.

In this evocative exploration, Cheryl Walker shows that there is a distinct tradition of women's poetry in America—one that the poets themselves have not always been fully aware of—and that individual poems can be read as manifestations of that tradition. Philomela, the nightingale of literary mythology, serves as a model for women poets, representing simultaneously both their particular forms of power and the frustrating powerlessness imposed on them by the cultural norms for women. The author identifies a number of archetypal motifs: the power fantasy, the sanctuary poem, the renunciation poem, the forbidden lover poem, the "burden of beauty," and the "secret sorrow." Among the poets discussed are Anne Bradstreet, Phillis Wheatley, Lydia Sigourney, Frances Osgood, Julia Ward Howe, Margaret Fuller, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, and Louise Guiney.
