Lilac Girls: A Novel
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • For readers of The Nightingale and Sarah’s Key, inspired by the life of a real World War II heroine, this remarkable debut novel reveals the power of unsung women to change history in their quest for love, freedom, and second chances.

New York socialite Caroline Ferriday has her hands full with her post at the French consulate and a new love on the horizon. But Caroline’s world is forever changed when Hitler’s army invades Poland in September 1939—and then sets its sights on France.

An ocean away from Caroline, Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish teenager, senses her carefree youth disappearing as she is drawn deeper into her role as courier for the underground resistance movement. In a tense atmosphere of watchful eyes and suspecting neighbors, one false move can have dire consequences.

For the ambitious young German doctor, Herta Oberheuser, an ad for a government medical position seems her ticket out of a desolate life. Once hired, though, she finds herself trapped in a male-dominated realm of Nazi secrets and power.

The lives of these three women are set on a collision course when the unthinkable happens and Kasia is sent to Ravensbrück, the notorious Nazi concentration camp for women. Their stories cross continents—from New York to Paris, Germany, and Poland—as Caroline and Kasia strive to bring justice to those whom history has forgotten.

Le ragazze senza nome (eNewton Narrativa) (Italian Edition)

«Le ragazze senza nome è il miglior libro che abbia letto quest'anno. Non lo dimenticherete.»
Jamie Ford, autore bestseller del New York Times
Una storia di coraggio nell’orrore di Ravensbrück, il campo di concentramento femminile

A New York, Caroline Ferriday sembra avere tutto ciò che desidera, con il suo posto al consolato francese e un nuovo amore all’orizzonte. Ma il mondo di Caroline cambia per sempre quando, nel settembre del 1939, l’esercito di Hitler invade la Polonia e minaccia di arrivare in Francia. A un oceano di distanza da Caroline, Kasia Kuzmerick, un’adolescente polacca, sente la propria spensierata giovinezza scomparire mentre si dà da fare nel suo ruolo di corriere per il movimento di resistenza. In quel clima teso, tra occhi attenti e vicini sospettosi, un passo falso può avere conseguenze disastrose. Per l’ambiziosa giovane dottoressa tedesca Herta Oberheuser, un annuncio per una posizione di medico al servizio del governo sembra il biglietto vincente per abbandonare una vita di desolazione. Una volta assunta, però, si trova intrappolata in un regno di segreti e potere, dominato dagli uomini del Reich. Le vite di queste tre donne entrano in collisione quando accade l’impensabile e Kasia viene deportata a Ravensbrück, il famigerato campo di concentramento nazista per sole donne. Le loro storie si incrociano da New York a Parigi, dalla Germania alla Polonia, mentre Caroline e Kasia si sforzano di rendere giustizia a coloro che la storia ha dimenticato.
Ispirato alla vita di una vera eroina della seconda guerra mondiale
Una storia incredibile di amore, redenzione e terribili segreti nascosti per decenni
Un romanzo d’esordio potente

«Questo è il tipo di libro che vorrei avere il coraggio di scrivere, uno sguardo profondo, sconvolgente e appassionante sulla solidarietà femminile attraverso la lente scura della Shoah. Le ragazze senza nome è il miglior libro che abbia letto quest’anno. Non lo dimenticherete.»
Jamie Ford, autore bestseller del New York Times
«Ispirandosi a fatti realmente accaduti e persone reali, Martha Hall Kelly ha cucito insieme le storie di tre donne durante la seconda guerra mondiale, che rivelano il coraggio, la viltà e la crudeltà di quei terribili giorni. Questa è una parte della storia, che è la storia di donne che non dovrebbero essere dimenticate.»
Lisa See, New York Times
«Ricco di dettagli storici e avvincente fino alla fine, Le ragazze senza nome tesse le vite di tre donne sorprendenti in una storia dalla straordinaria forza morale, sullo sfondo straziante di un’Europa in balia della Germania nazista. Martha Hall Kelly si muove senza sforzo su campi di battaglia reali e morali, attraverso la traiettoria di una storia d’amore in tempo di guerra. Non riesco a ricordare l’ultima volta che ho letto un romanzo che mi ha commosso così profondamente.»
Beatriz Williams, autrice bestseller del New York Times

Southern Writers: A New Biographical Dictionary (Southern Literary Studies)
This new edition of Southern Writers assumes its distinguished predecessor's place as the essential reference on literary artists of the American South. Broadly expanded and thoroughly revised, it boasts 604 entries-nearly double the earlier edition's-written by 264 scholars. For every figure major and minor, from the venerable and canonical to the fresh and innovative, a biographical sketch and chronological list of published works provide comprehensive, concise, up-to-date information. Here in one convenient source are the South's novelists and short story writers, poets and dramatists, memoirists and essayists, journalists, scholars, and biographers from the colonial period to the twenty-first century.

What constitutes a "southern writer" is always a matter for debate. Editors Joseph M. Flora and Amber Vogel have used a generous definition that turns on having a significant connection to the region, in either a personal or literary sense. New to this volume are younger writers who have emerged in the quarter century since the dictionary's original publication, as well as older talents previously unknown or unacknowledged. For almost every writer found in the previous edition, a new biography has been commissioned.

Drawn from the very best minds on southern literature and covering the full spectrum of its practitioners, Southern Writers is an indispensable reference book for anyone intrigued by the subject.

Mulheres sem nome (Portuguese Edition)

Inspirado em personagens reais da Segunda Guerra Mundial, um romance encantador sobre coragem, escolhas e redenção. Até onde você iria para honrar a vida daqueles que foram esquecidos?

A socialite nova-iorquina Caroline Ferriday está sobrecarregada de trabalho no Consulado da França, em função da iminência da guerra. O ano é 1939 e o Exército de Hitler acaba de invadir a Polônia, onde Kasia Kuzmerick vai deixando para trás a tranquilidade da infância conforme se envolve cada vez mais com o movimento de resistência de seu país. Distante das duas, a ambiciosa Herta Oberheuser tem a oportunidade de se libertar de uma vida desoladora e abraçar o sonho de se tornar médica cirurgiã, a serviço da Alemanha.

Três mulheres cujas trajetórias se cruzam quando o impensável acontece: Kasia é capturada e levada para o campo de concentração feminino de Ravensbrück, onde Herta agora exerce sua controversa medicina. Uma história que atravessa continentes — dos Estados Unidos à França, da Alemanha à Polônia — enquanto Caroline e Kasia persistem no sonho de tornar o mundo um lugar melhor.

Costurado por fatos históricos e personagens femininas poderosas, Mulheres sem nome é um romance extraordinário sobre a luta anônima por amor e liberdade. Um livro inspirador, que encanta e comove até a última página.
