Summary

“This book is The Secret History meets Interview with the Vampire. It’s campy, creepy, sensational fun that’s hardly life-sucking” (Daily Candy).   A sensual and Gothic tale of obsession and sexual awakening, Sabine “was deemed so scandalous by its author that she refused to put her name to it. But despite its lusty content, the real shock is the scary secret unearthed toward the end” (Reveal).   It is the 1950s and existentialism is flourishing in Paris. But Viola, a seventeen-year-old English girl, is languishing in an elite boarding school in the dull French countryside. Under the distracted tutelage of Aimée, the students lounge about the crumbling gray château playing records and smoking Gitanes, awaiting the arrival of some suitable distraction.   Then a new teacher arrives—Sabine—with her long, tanned legs and mane of golden hair. Sabine questions everything and challenges the girls to look at their world anew. Passion strikes Viola. But there are sinister forces at play in the château and when Sabine becomes ill with a blood disorder, Viola uncovers a dangerous secret . . .   In this “irresistible gothic potboiler . . . the anonymous author of this ardent girl-for-girl romance evokes the mesmerizing quality of a dream at dusk, meshed with an appropriately overheated, breathless, and hormone-driven narrative voice” (Booklist).   “A.P. writes superbly, whoever she or he may be . . . Sabine is an enchanting novel that deserves to be a cult classic.” —The Daily Telegraph   “Anonymous A.P marvelously re-creates the hormonal anguish of the fey teenagers.” —Publishers Weekly   “A sexy, Gothic tale.” —Harpers & Queen   “Remarkable . . . creepy.” —Kirkus Reviews

    A retelling of the thirteenth-century French legend of Lancelot and the mutual love between him and Galehaut, Lord of the Distant Isles. 
     
    Retellings of the Old French story of King Arthur, Guenevere, and Lancelot have left out a fourth figure amongst these legendary star-crossed lovers, the man who loved the knight, Lancelot. He was Galehaut, a mortal enemy of Arthur, and the invincible Lord of the Distant Isles. And he was Guenevere’s rival for Lancelot’s passion. The story is now complete, as a tragic double-love story, its complexity and emotional depth restored for the modern reader. 
     
    It is an extraordinary tale. For love of Lancelot, Galehaut surrenders his political ambitions, submitting to the rule of Arthur; the same love leads him to facilitate relations between Lancelot and the Queen. The mighty Lord of the Distant Isles, who had seemed destined to conquer the world, becomes a paragon of love-inspired self-sacrifice in this ancient tale of one man who deeply loves another. 
     
    “Judith Jaidinger’s wood engravings illustrate a dual love story, Lancelot’s love for Guenevere and Galehaut’s for Lancelot.” —Publishers Weekly

    In this poignant novel by a New York Times–bestselling author, a dying woman looks back on the great relationships of her life. When she learns that she is dying, Laura Spelman vows to spend her final year only on what matters most. As she quickly realizes, this means coming to terms with her most fruitful and important bonds—her “real connections”—all of which have been with women. From her tempestuous daughter and beloved aunt, to a promising lesbian writer she is mentoring and a cherished friend from her youth, Laura revisits her most significant relationships, each fraught with its own history and meaning. Insightful and witty, A Reckoning is an unforgettable portrait of one woman’s journey to seize life before it ends, and of the power in embracing the fact that the most challenging interactions are often the most rewarding. This ebook features an extended biography of May Sarton.
