Since the moment we first entered Downton Abbey in 1912, we have been swept away by Julian Fellowes' evocative world of romance, intrigue, drama and tradition. Now, in 1925, as Downton Abbey prepares to close its doors for the final time, Jessica Fellowes leads us through the house and estate, reliving the iconic moments of the wonderfully aristocratic Crawley family and their servants as they navigate the emerging modern age. Travelling from Great Hall to servants' hall, bedroom to boot room, we glimpse as we go Matthew and Isobel Crawley arriving for the first time, the death of Kemal Pamuk, Cora's tragic miscarriage, Edith's affair with Michael Gregson, Mary's new haircut, Thomas and O'Brien's scheming, Anna and Bates's troubles with the law, and Carson's marriage to Mrs Hughes. Alongside this will be in-depth interviews with the cast who have worked on the show for six years and know it so well. Packed full of stunning location shots and stills from all six series of the show including exclusive behind-the-scenes photography, this celebratory book is the ultimate gift for Downton Abbey fans the world over.

In April of 2011 LIFE ventured to London for our bestselling book The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. This June we return to capture all the pomp and circumstance as England celebrates its queen's 60th year on the throne. All of the best photography from the festivities will be in these pages — as will so much else. Directly descended from Victoria, Elizabeth is now on the verge of supplanting that great queen as Britain's longest serving monarch ever — and LIFE has had its cameras trained on her since she was a little girl. We were there to record her precocious courage during World War II, her splendiferous marriage to Prince Philip, her glittery coronation, her travails and dramas in the modern age. The other characters that come and go in these pages are equally famous and compelling: Wayward Uncle Edward who had to abdicate the throne, the Queen Mum and her hats, Elizabeth's father George VI who overcame his stammer to rally his countrymen during the war, Prince Charles, Lady Diana, the grandsons Will and Harry — and on and on. We see these people move through palaces opulent beyond belief (Buckingham, Windsor), and estates that dwarf Downton Abbey (Sandringham, Balmoral). We learn of their lives, their loves, their scandals. Ever with her head held high, there is Elizabeth II. Here is her royal story, told in its entirety. This book will include not only grand photography of the Jubilee but of prior House of Windsor celebrations, including Victoria's own 60th anniversary celebration, Elizabeth's wedding, the so-called "Wedding of the Century" (Charles and Di's), and the recent marriage of Elizabeth's grandson to Princess Kate. It is a splashy, festive book. It fairly shouts: "Long live the queen!"

The ladies of Downton Abbey have made us all intimately familiar with Edwardian standards of beauty and fashion. But just how did the elegant ladies of the period go about making the most of their attractions? Well, one of the ways was through the use of guidebooks like How to Be Pretty Though Plain, a forthright handbook published in 1899 that covers all manner of approaches to improving one’s personal appearance. Presented here in a facsimile edition, How to Be Pretty offers an array of advice, from tips on cosmetics to more wide-ranging suggestions on lifestyle and habits. A suggestion that ladies brush “the eyebrows and eyelashes every morning with a solution of green tea” sits alongside a surprisingly modern take on the benefits of sleep, exercise, and fresh air, while a recipe for myrrh-and-borax tooth powder reminds us that keeping the pearlies white has long been an obsession. As interesting—and amusing—for its social history as for the breezy, common-sense tone of its advice, How to Be Pretty Though Plain is a celebration of the enduring preoccupation with looking one’s best.

Author: Hilary Reyl

Page: 256

View: 796

‘A true teen anthem, another Fault in our Stars.’ Melissa de la Cruz, NYT-bestselling author of Witches of East End and Alex and Eliza Kids Like Us is the delightful, heartwarming story of Martin, a teenager on the autism spectrum, who falls for Gilberte-Alice, a ‘normal’ French girl. While spending summer in the French countryside with his mother, Martin mistakes Gilberte for a character in a novel he is obsessed with—Marcel Proust’s masterpiece In Search of Lost Time. He gradually realises she is not Gilberte, the fantasy girl, but a real person named Alice. Falling in love, in all its unpredictability, teaches Martin that he can in fact connect, can get out of his bubble. Offering a valuable window into the mind of a high-functioning autistic kid, Kids Like Us is also the ultimate book about acceptance. Perhaps we are all in our own bubble; perhaps the line between reality and imagination does not have to be fixed. We meet Martin’s adorable older sister, Elisabeth, his friend Layla and her very useful ‘moth’ theory. And there’s lots of great cooking. The prose is sharp, original and brimming with empathy and humour. For those who loved The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, and Counting by 7's by Holly Goldberg Sloan. Hilary Reyl has spent several years working and studying in France. She lives in New York City with her husband and three daughters. Her adult novel Lessons in French, was an editor’s pick on Oprah.com. Kids Like Us is Hilary’s first young-adult novel. ‘Reyl movingly captures the point of view of a person who sees the world in a completely different way. Her writing is lucid and luminous, and the first-person narrative has a cinematic quality as Martin processes the world around him. Charming, thoughtful Martin is easy to root for, and readers will cheer as he triumphs over obstacles.’ STARRED REVIEW, Booklist ‘The original narrative voice of 16-year-old Martin drives adult author Reyl’s insightful and multi-layered first book for teens, which brims with nostalgia, romance, complex supporting characters, and fascinating introspection.’ STARRED REVIEW, Publishers Weekly ‘The book’s indebtedness to Proust goes beyond lyrical phrases to a thematic embrace of the slow savouring of the richness of human experience. In the end, however, it is Martin’s ability to move beyond things past to the possibilities that open up when you accept yourself and others that gives this wise story its resonance.’ STARRED REVIEW, Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books ‘A heartfelt celebration of young life with all its strange and endearing awkwardness, obsessions and first eruptions of love.’ Martine Murray ‘Kids Like Us was a really beautiful story...I loved the writing and the sparse but well placed details. I thought this was a thoroughly accurate and interesting exploration of the autistic mind, feelings and experiences.’ Paper Fury ‘Martin is one of the most relatable characters I have ever read...Unique and refreshing.’ Autistic & Unapologetic ‘You’ll smile, you’ll gasp, you’ll root for main character Martin throughout...An exquisitely insightful, charming tale.’ LoveReading UK ‘For a teenager on the spectrum, a simple human connection can be an epic challenge. In her wonderfully touching YA debut, Hilary Reyl tells the story of one boy's effort to connect his imaginary world to the real one. There is love, humor and compassion on every page. You'll be blown away by this boy and by this book.’ Holly Goldberg Sloan, NYT bestselling author of Counting by 7s ‘The most original voice since The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime tells the most radiantly human love story since Eleanor and Park,. Reyl's extraordinary YA debut isn’t just a book you read; this is one of those rare books that reaches in deep and writes you back.’ Margaret Stohl, co-author of #1 NYT and international bestseller Beautiful Creatures ‘Kids Like Us is a song in which, like life, both harmony and dissonance play their part. The writing is beautiful; the setting lush and evocative. I didn't want to leave Martin's world.’ Ally Condie, #1 NYT bestselling author of Matched and Summerlost ‘A heartwarming read. The characterisation is strong and the setting idyllic...This book not only transports you emotionally but geographically as well.’ Reading Time
