To rescue her was to rescue his own soul. On a cold Parisian night, Vicomte Aleksender de Lefevre forges an everlasting bond with a broken girl during her darkest hour, saving her from a life of abuse and misery. Tormented by his own demons, he finds his first bit of solace in sheltering little Sofia Rose. But when Aleksender is drawn away by the Franco-Prussian war, the seasons pass. And in that long year, his Sofia matures into a stunning young woman-a dancer with an understanding of devotion and redemption far surpassing her age. Alongside his closest friend, Aleksender returns home to find that "home" is gone, replaced by revolution, bloodshed, betrayal-and a love always out of reach. Scarred both inside and out, he's thrust into a world of sensuality and violence-a world in which all his hours have now grown dark, where only Sofia might bring an end to the winter in his heart.

We fell in love, really hard." - Diva's Book Blog"

By the last throes of winter, we all are eagerly waiting for the resurrection of springtime. We watch for signs of it. A sudden newness arrives, which speaks to hearts that have held out through the winter. Along with the rebirth, there is a solid recognition of age, for spring is an ancient renewal. Spring: A Spiritual Biography of the Season explores this delicate balance between the new and the ancient, evoking our sense that springtime is a time of poignant renewal, of youth merged with age, of giddy joy tempered by wisdom.

Often thought of as the quintessential poet of New England, Robert Frost is one of the most widely read American poets of the 20th century. But in spite of his ties to New England, he was born in San Francisco; he published his first book of poetry in England rather than the United States; he matured as a poet during his years abroad; and upon his return to America, he sometimes taught at the University of Michigan and spent many of his winters in Florida. This reference book provides hundreds of alphabetically arranged entries on Frost's poems and illuminates the complexities of his life and writings. Entries are written by expert contributors and conclude with brief citations of additional sources of information. The volume includes a chronology and closes with a bibliography of major studies.

After just a year of close, loving marriage, Ruth has been widowed. Her beloved husband, Ben, has been killed in a tragic accident and Ruth is left, suddenly and totally bereft. Unable to share her sorrow and grief with Ben's family, who are dealing with their pain in their own way, Ruth becomes increasingly isolated, burying herself in her cottage in the countryside as the seasons change around her. Only Ben's young brother Jo, is able to reach out beyond his own grief, to offer Ruth the compassion which might reclaim her from her own devastating unhappiness. The result is a moving, lyrical exploration of love and loss, of grief and mourning, from a masterful writer.

This book provides an overview of how boreal and temperate tree species have adapted their annual development cycle to the seasonally varying climatic conditions. Therefore, the frost hardy dormant phase, and the susceptible growth phase, are synchronized with the seasonality of the climate. The volume discusses the annual cycle, including various attributes such as timing of bud burst and other phenological events, seasonality of photosynthetic capacity or the frost hardiness of the trees. During the last few decades dynamic ecophysiological models have been used increasingly in studies of the annual cycle, particularly when projecting the ecological effects of climate change. The main emphasis of this volume is on combining modelling with experimental studies, and on the importance of the biological realism of the models.

As new information is introduced and environmental changes occur, Plant Biology continues to develop and evolve as a science. Updated and revised to keep pace with these developments, the Fifth Edition of Botany: An Introduction to Plant Biology provides a modern and comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of botany while retaining the important focus of natural selection, analysis of botanical phenomena, and diversity. Students are first introduced to topics that should be most familiar (plant structure), proceed to those less familiar (plant physiology and development), and conclude with topics that are likely least familiar to the introductory student (genetics, evolution, and ecology). Mauseth is sure to provide the latest material on molecular biology and plant biotechnology in an effort to keep pace with these advancing areas of study. All sections are written to be self-contained allowing for a flexible presentation of course material. Key Features: - Includes new content on molecular biology, plant biotechnology, and the most recent coverage of taxonomy and phylogeny of plants. - Now available with a new electronic laboratory manual. - Plants Do Things Differently boxes help students understand and compare plant biology with human biology. - End-of-chapter study guide includes nearly 50 or more questions in each chapter, urging students to test themselves on the most important points in the chapter. - Alternatives boxes encourage students to think expansively about alternative aspects of plant biology that are more advantageous in certain conditions.

Written for the introductory course for non-science majors, Plants & People outlines the practical, economical, and environmental aspects of how plants interact with human beings and the earth. The book begins with an introduction to the fundamental concepts of plant biology, followed by sections focused on the global issues related to plants and their connection to global warming, deforestation, and biogeography. It continues by examining how plants influence our daily lives, from food and drink to clothing and medicinal usage. The text encourages readers to have a continued interest in plants in our society and to consider how our actions play a role in their existence.

"Wise old Vergil says in one of his Georgics, 'Praise large farms, stick to small ones,'" Robert Frost told a friend. "Twenty acres are just about enough." Frost started out as a school teacher living the rural life of a would-be farmer, and later turned to farming full time when he bought a place of his own. After a sojourn in England where his first two books--A Boy's Will and North of Boston--were published to critical acclaim, he returned to New England, acquired a new farm and became a rustic for much of the rest of his life. Frost claimed that all of his poetry was farm poetry. His deep admiration for Virgil's Georgics, or poems of rural life, inspired the creation of his own New England "georgics." This body of work can be seen as his answer to the haughty 20th-century modernism that seemed certain to define the future of Western poetry. Like the "West-Running Brook" in his poem of the same name, Frost's poetry can be seen as an embodiment of contrariness.

In many places in the world, forests dominate landscapes and provide various products. Future climate change could profoundly alter the productivity of forest ecosystems and species composition. Until now, climate impact research has primarily focused on the likely impacts of rise in temperature, increased atmospheric CO2 concentration, and varying precipitation on unmanaged forests. The issue that now needs to be addressed is how to sustainably manage climate change for timber production and biomass. Though climate change is a global issue, impacts on forests depend on local environmental conditions and management methods, so this book will look at the issue under varying local contexts.
