But no one can say that I didn't sing.
Born in to wealthy Pennsylvanian parents, Florence was a talented young pianist but her life was thrown into turmoil when she eloped with Frank Jenkins, a man twice her age. The marriage proved a disaster and, in order to survive, Florence was forced to abandon her dreams of a musical career and teach the piano. Then her father died in and, newly installed in New York, she used a considerable inheritance to fund her passion. She set up a prestigious amateur music club and began staging operas.

Aided by her English common-law husband, St Clair Bayfield, she worked tirelessly to support the city's musical life. Many young singers owed their start to Florence, but she too yearned to perform and began giving regular recitals that quickly attracted a cult following. And yet nothing could prepare the world for the astonishing climax of her career when, at the age of seventy-six, she performed at the most hallowed concert hall in America.
This remarkable book also includes Nicholas Martin's funny, moving and inspirational screenplay.

Ruler Of The Night blends fact and fiction to an exceptional degree, this time focusing on an actual Victorian murder so startling that it changed the culture - in this case, the first murder on an English train, its brutality stoking fears that the newly invented railway would, as one newspaper predicted, 'annihilate time and space.
The stakes couldn't be greater: The fast-paced narrative matches the speed with which the railway changed Victorian life as master storyteller David Morrell transports readers back in time, away from the modern world and into the dangerous shadows of the past. It virtually excluded African workers, and in many cases unions were led by cautious and paternalistic leaders, long schooled in avoiding confrontation with either the state or employers. Then widespread strikes erupted in Durban where hundreds of thousands of workers downed tools in support of wage demands.
It was a militant explosion unprecedented since the apartheid government had crushed and outlawed mass demonstrations against segregation and 'whites-only' rule. And it provided the impetus for the next decade and a half of trade union organisation, which succeeded in uniting workers on a largely non-racial basis, dominated by the slogan 'one industry one union'. Maverick Insider is an anecdotal, insider's account of the transformation during this period in the textile, clothing and leather worker sectors.
It traces the interaction between union leadership and both political parties and community organisations dedicated to making the country ungovernable, as well as those who were determined to stamp out such calls. It details struggles to unite workers across political divides in the same union organisation and to assert an independent working-class point of view in a period of growing African nationalism.
It details the traumatic events on the road to the so-called peaceful miracle that created a rainbow nation but left 22 South Africans dead in the process. And it is the story of a team of people who set out to change the world and formed an unshakeable bond in the process. Somehow she'd always known that she would end like this.

Cardboard, with a sticker on the outside. In a freezing, desolate Edinburgh flat an old woman takes her last breath surrounded by the few objects she has accrued over a lifetime: Meanwhile, guided by the flip of a coin, Margaret Penny arrives back at her old family home, escaping a life in London recently turned to ash. Faced with relying on a resentful mother she has never really known, Margaret soon finds herself employed by the Office for Lost People, tasked with finding the families of the dead: Her instructions are to uncover paperwork, yet the only thing Mrs Walker, the old woman in her current case, left behind is a series of peculiar objects.
But in the end it is these objects that will unravel Mrs Walker's real story: For in uncovering the astonishing tale of an old woman who died alone, Margaret will finally discover her own story too These are complemented by full-length questions dealing with multiple aspects of specific sections of the IFRS for SMEs including recognition, measurement and disclosure issues.

To a people who had known violence and injustice, and who had been stripped of their dignity, Mandela brought hope, pride and a new patriotism. He showed that reconciliation, forgiveness and tolerance are not only possible but an imperative. In the process, he transformed South Africa from pariah of the world to a leader in democracy. This book describes the tremendous challenges faced by Nelson Mandela and those who followed him, in trying to heal his beloved land.
It depicts the statesman, the patient and the angry, the man who was never too busy to stop and listen to a child. Every person who has met Mandela has felt his special 'Madiba magic'. The liberation struggle to which he devoted his life did not end with the first democratic election in It continues in the form of a struggle for economic justice, without which democracy cannot survive.
