11,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This is the true history of the French Acadians, who settled French Acadia (now Nova Scotia) in the 1500's, only to live under British rule when King Louis XV ceded the territory to England in 1713. The French Acadians were victims of the tragic Exile and Deportation by the British in 1755, resulting in the intentional separation of families onto different ships bound for Europe, the Caribbean and the English Colonies. How these courageous Acadians endured one hardship after another proves their faith and courage under the most daunting circumstances and led to the Cajuns of today. Drawing from historical archives in France, Canada, Spain, Cuba and the United States, this valuable reference provides an index of names and dates which provide accurate historical research for historians, genealogists and lovers of history.

Penn and Cesswi, the teen survivors of a brutal northern Minnesota work camp, escape to the Greater Albertan Federation, only to become unwilling recruits in a deadly civil war. The Albertan camp is riddled with dark undercurrents, and sabotage that strike close to Penn and his dearest friends, leaving them disillusioned with the supposedly “better” life. But Penn's girlfriend, Cesswi, sees only wild conspiracy theories. The harsh winter has turned into an early spring, meaning Penn and Cesswi's six month fugitive exile from the oppressive Northwoods work camp is drawing to a close. Deportation looms if they don't accept Albertan citizenship, giving the teenaged couple a life-changing decision to make. Penn is set on returning home to Winnkota, but Cesswi is not so sure. When the opportunity presents itself in the form of an unexpected uprising, they attempt their perilous escape. They survived their flight from the Northwoods camp, and must now brave the bullets once again for another chance at freedom, while caught up in a bloody rebellion that could drive them apart forever. Penn and Cesswi's better life seems further away than ever. Can Penn bring his scattered crew together again, and lead them all home to safety? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eddie Frierson.

Leaving Berlin: A Novel , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, ...

From the best-selling author of Istanbul Passage - called a "fast-moving thinking man's thriller" by The Wall Street Journal - comes a sweeping, atmospheric novel of postwar East Berlin, a city caught between political idealism and the harsh realities of Soviet occupation. Berlin, 1948. Almost four years after the war's end, the city is still in ruins, a physical wasteland and a political symbol about to rupture. In the West a defiant, blockaded city is barely surviving on airlifted supplies; in the East the heady early days of political reconstruction are being undermined by the murky compromises of the Cold War. Espionage, like the black market, is a fact of life. Even culture has become a battleground, with German intellectuals being lured back from exile to add credibility to the competing sectors. Alex Meier, a young Jewish writer, fled the Nazis for America before the war. But the politics of his youth have now put him in the crosshairs of the McCarthy witch hunts. Faced with deportation and the loss of his family, he makes a desperate bargain with the fledgling CIA: He will earn his way back to America by acting as their agent in his native Berlin. But almost from the start things go fatally wrong. A kidnapping misfires, an East German agent is killed, and Alex finds himself a wanted man. Worse, he discovers his real assignment: to spy on the woman he left behind, the only woman he has ever loved. Changing sides in Berlin is as easy as crossing a sector border. But where do we draw the lines of our moral boundaries? Betrayal? Survival? Murder? Filled with intrigue and the moral ambiguity of conflicted loyalties, Joseph Kanon's new novel is a compelling thriller and a love story that brings a shadowy period of history vividly to life. 1.

Harvard Square: A Novel , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, ...

André Aciman has been hailed as "the most exciting new fiction writer of the 21st century" (New York magazine), a "brilliant chronicler of the disconnect...between who we are and who we wish we might have been" (Wall Street Journal), and a writer of "fiction at its most supremely interesting" (Colm Tóibín). Now, with his third and most ambitious novel, Aciman delivers an elegant and powerful tale of the wages of assimilation - a moving story of an immigrant’s remembered youth and the nearly forgotten costs and sacrifices of becoming an American. It’s the fall of 1977, and amid the lovely, leafy streets of Cambridge a young Harvard graduate student, a Jew from Egypt, longs more than anything to become an assimilated American and a professor of literature. He spends his days in a pleasant blur of 17th-century fiction, but when he meets a brash, charismatic Arab cab driver in a Harvard Square café, everything changes. Nicknamed Kalashnikov - Kalaj for short - for his machine-gun vitriol, the cab driver roars into the student’s life with his denunciations of the American obsession with "all things jumbo and ersatz" - Twinkies, monster television sets, all-you-can-eat buffets - and his outrageous declarations on love and the art of seduction. The student finds it hard to resist his new friend’s magnetism, and before long he begins to neglect his studies and live a double life: one in the rarefied world of Harvard, the other as an exile with Kalaj on the streets of Cambridge. Together they carouse the bars and cafés around Harvard Square, trade intimate accounts of their love affairs, argue about the American dream, and skinny-dip in Walden Pond. But as final exams loom and Kalaj has his license revoked and is threatened with deportation, the student faces the decision of his life: whether to cling to his dream of New-World assimilation or risk it all to defend his Old-World friend. Harvard Square is a sexually charged and 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sanjiv Jhaveri. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brll/004850/bk_brll_004850_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Last Boat Out of Shanghai

The dramatic real life stories of four young people caught up in the mass exodus of Shanghai in the wake of China's 1949 Communist revolution-a heartrending precursor to the struggles faced by emigrants today. "A true page-turner . . . [Helen] Zia has proven once again that history is something that happens to real people."-New York Times bestselling author Lisa See NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR AND THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR • LONGLISTED FOR THE PEN/JACQUELINE BOGRAD WELD AWARD FOR BIOGRAPHY Shanghai has historically been China's jewel, its richest, most modern and westernized city. The bustling metropolis was home to sophisticated intellectuals, entrepreneurs, and a thriving middle class when Mao's proletarian revolution emerged victorious from the long civil war. Terrified of the horrors the Communists would wreak upon their lives, citizens of Shanghai who could afford to fled in every direction. Seventy years later, members of the last generation to fully recall this massive exodus have revealed their stories to Chinese American journalist Helen Zia, who interviewed hundreds of exiles about their journey through one of the most tumultuous events of the twentieth century. From these moving accounts, Zia weaves together the stories of four young Shanghai residents who wrestled with the decision to abandon everything for an uncertain life as refugees in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the United States. Benny, who as a teenager became the unwilling heir to his father's dark wartime legacy, must decide either to escape to Hong Kong or navigate the intricacies of a newly Communist China. The resolute Annuo, forced to flee her home with her father, a defeated Nationalist official, becomes an unwelcome exile in Taiwan. The financially strapped Ho fights deportation from the U.S. in order to continue his studies while his family struggles at home. And Bing, given away by her poor parents, faces the prospect of a new life among strangers in America. The lives of these men and women are marvelously portrayed, revealing the dignity and triumph of personal survival. Herself the daughter of immigrants from China, Zia is uniquely equipped to explain how crises like the Shanghai transition affect children and their families, students and their futures, and, ultimately, the way we see ourselves and those around us. Last Boat Out of Shanghai brings a poignant personal angle to the experiences of refugees then and, by extension, today. "Zia's portraits are compassionate and heartbreaking, and they are, ultimately, the universal story of many families who leave their homeland as refugees and find less-than-welcoming circumstances on the other side."-Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club
