Meine Weihnachtsneuzugänge 2014

Dieses Jahr bin ich während Weihnachten in Amerika und erlebe das amerikanische Weihnachtsfest. Und auch hier geht Weihnachten auch nicht ohne Bücher, auch wenn es dieses Jahr nicht so viele geworden sind. Insgesamt sind es vier Bücher, die ich geschenkt bekommen habe und mir nicht selbst gekauft habe.

Die Seiten der Welt - Kai Meyer

Die Seiten der WeltVerlag: FJB
Seiten: 560
ISBN: 978-3-8414-2165-4
Klappentext: "„Während sie die Stufen zur Bibliothek hinablief, konnte Furia die Geschichten schon riechen: den besten Geruch der Welt.“
Furia Salamandra Faerfax lebt in einer Welt der Bücher. Der Landsitz ihrer Familie birgt eine unendliche Bibliothek. In ihren Tiefen ist Furia auf der Suche nach einem ganz besonderen Buch: ihrem Seelenbuch. Mit ihm will sie die Magie und die Macht der Worte entfesseln.
Doch dann wird ihr Bruder entführt, und Furia muss um sein Leben kämpfen. Ihr Weg führt sie nach Libropolis, die Stadt der verschwundenen Buchläden, und an die Grenzen der Nachtrefugien. Sie trifft auf Cat, die Diebin im Exil, und Finnian, den Rebellen. Gemeinsam ziehen sie in den Krieg – gegen die Herrscher der Bibliomantik und die Entschreibung aller Bücher."

The Christmas Blessing - Donna VanLiere

Seiten: 212
Klappentext: "When a stranger named Robert gave him the money to buy his mother a pair of shoes for her last Christmas, both Robert and Nathan learned the deepest lessons of love and giving. Now a medical student in his third year, Nathan realizes there are still things to be learned about faith, blessings, and sacrifice. Lessons he will learn from Meghan Sullivan - a young woman born with a hole in her heart that has not kept her from becoming a champion runner. And lessons learned from a young boy named Charlie, who teaches how to live a life of true courage. Together, they will help guide Nathan through the darkest period in his life."

The Christmas Note - Donna VanLiere

Seiten: 224
Klappentext: "Gretchen Daniels has recently moved into an apartment with her two children to be closer to her mother, Miriam. She and her children are building a life together in a new community when a mysterious young woman, Melissa McCreary, moves into the apartment next to them.
Melissa has few possessions, little personality, and keeps to herself. One day, a local landlord who is looking for Melissa knocks on Gretchen's door for assistance. Melissa's mother has died and in the coming weeks the landlord needs Melissa to empty her mother's apartment. Gretchen reaches out and offers to help, but the apartment is a gut wrenching shamble of a home. There is little worth saving except for a few photos and a note that is discovered on the crate beside the bed. It is unfinished but in the two scribbled lines, Melissa discovers she has a brother and a sister that she never knew about. Even more shocking, she begins to uncover family secrets that show her who she really is.
Can two very different women embark on a journey that explores a long-buried need for forgiveness, hope, and redemption?"

The Christmas Secret - Donna VanLiere

Seiten: 304
Klappentext: "When a struggling young single mother saves the life of an elderly woman, she sets into motion a series of events that will test her strength, loyalty, and determination, all the while setting her on the path to finding true love.
Christine Eisley is the mother of seven-year-old Zach and five-year-old Haley. Her ex-husband provides little, if any, child support and makes life difficult for Christine by using the children as pawns. She works long hours as a waitress to make ends meet, but her job is in jeopardy because she's often late to work due to the unreliable teenaged sitters she's forced to use. When Christine saves the life of a woman who works in Wilson's department store, the owner of Wilson's wants to find her, to thank her, but Christine has disappeared, losing another job once again. He sets his grandson, Jason, to the task of finding the mysterious good Samaritan.
Jason, an accountant by trade who has lost his job to downsizing, thinks he is "above" working at Wilson's. Soon, he discovers that this new task gives him more than he bargains for."
