Description : Mitchelstown Castle in County Cork, seat of the notorious Anglo-Irish Kingsborough family, fairly hums with intrigue. In 1786 the new young governess, Mary Wollstonecraft, witnesses a stabbing when she attends a pagan bonfire at which an illegitimate son of the nobility is killed. When the young Irishman Liam Donovan, who hated the aristocratic rogue for seducing his niece, becomes the prime suspect for his murder, Mary-ever a champion of the oppressed, and susceptible to Liam's charm-determines to prove him innocent. Mary Wollstonecraft (mother of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, who wrote Frankenstein) was celebrated, even a cause celebre in her day, as a notorious and free-thinking rebel. Her short life was highly unconventional, with the kidnap of her sister from an abusive husband, love affairs, an illegitimate child, religious dissent, a suicide attempt, participation in the French Revolution, and other eyebrow-raising episodes. Nancy Means Wright hopes that Midnight Fires, set during Mary's term as a governess in Ireland, will "present her to the world as the brilliant, yet wholly human, passionate, and conflicted woman that she was."Riiviting. . . . As Mary snoops around in search of the culprit, she is bound not to lose herself to the mystery, her job, or the charms of any man. Wright deftly illuminates 18th-century class tensions."

Description : Alarmed by the direction of their descendants throughout the world, the ancient Goddesses and Gods of Celtic lands are summoning prophetic voices to remind the people of their own divinity, and the interconnectedness of everything and everyone. Secure in their smug complacency, confident they had wiped out the indigenous spirituality, the church is unaware that the secret fraternity of artisans and smiths had preserved the memory of the old way. Now they have come out of hiding and are promulgating the ancient symbols and insights. Amidst accusations from the church of blasphemy and heresy, the old fires have been rekindled. And, as the Irish people are finally told the truth, that it was the church who sold them into eight hundred years of slavery to the British Empire, many are returning to the primal spirit path of their ancestors. Throughout the land, and across the globe, there are rumors of midnight fires burning deep within the forests, around which it is said the ancient Fianna, Warrior Bands, have been reborn.

Description : In Midnight Confessions, poet Joy Olree, a self-described autistic poet with MS, presents a collection of user-friendly verse reflecting on her experiences with the world and her readings and studies of the Bible. She offers her opinions on a wide range of topics and invites disagreement and discussion. Midnight Confessions In the twinkling of an eye they came, the memory snatchers. First it was the short-term memories, then the medium ones. As time went by, more memories seem to leave, but she never forgot her God and she never did not pray. I put my hand on her bed as she breathed her last breath. I prayed, Thank you, Lord, for making it possible for me to be there. As I sit here in the lighted room, the dark outside, I miss my stepmom. Tomorrow is Christmas, a time of celebration, and I think to myself, Do I have anything to celebrate? Most of my family has died. I still have the children and the grandchildren. I guess I am blessed, and is that not the way of life? Us older folks die, and the young take our place, unless there is some unforeseen unexpected tragedy. But I have much to be thankful for this Christmas. See, because of my decision to take care of my stepmom at the nursing home, I now have a new set of friends. A nursing home full of friends. Thank you, stepmom and God, for making this possible. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year, humanity.

Now entertain conjecture of a time When creeping murmur and the poring1 dark Fills the wide vessel of the Universe. From camp to camp, through the foul womb of night, The hum of either army stilly sounds, That the fix'd sentinels2 almost receive The secret whispers of each other's watch: Fire answers fire; and through their paly flames Each battle sees the other's umber'd 3 face: 1 To pore is to look intently, needfully, or with strained vision; and poring is here, no doubt, an instance of what is called transferred epithet: the darkness in which we look as aforesaid, ox grope. 2 That is, the sentinels stationed, or remaining at their posts.--That has the force of so that; a very frequent usage. 3 It has been said that the distant visages of the soldiers would appear of an umber colour when beheld through the light of midnight fires. I suspect that nothing more is meant than shadow'd face. The epithet paly flames is against the other interpretation. Umbre for shadow is common in our elder writers. Steed threatens steed, in high and boastful neighs Piercing the night's dull ear; and from the tents, The armourers, accomplishing the knights, With busy hammers closing rivets up,4 Give dreadful note of preparation: The country cocks do crow, the clocks do toll, And the third hour of drowsy morning name. Proud of their number...

Description : Enter a midnight world of dark seduction and unquenchable desire, of sinful pleasure and breathtaking intrigue—where amid the flames of war and the immortal thirst of two irresistible lovers, an alliance is born that would burn forever.... NIGHT FIRES Beautiful and damned, Simone de la Fer roamed the French nights as a vampire. A reluctant immortal, she thought she’d never again taste the bittersweet pleasures of mortal love—until she met an enigmatic human spy she found impossible to resist. Haunted by his own violent past, Michael Corday arrived from England on a secret mission. On a starlit highway he found his life changed forever by a creature of the night unlike any he’d ever encountered. Unable to deny their destiny, they traveled together through the Parisian underworld on a dangerously erotic journey to right a terrible wrong—even as they were stalked by a merciless hunter intent on destroying them. For theirs was a passion so taboo, it had been forbidden by human and vampire alike; so sinful, it could only be paradise. And they would risk eternal damnation to taste it just once again...

Description : Excerpt from Illustrations of Political Economy, Vol. 4 The fair and fertile county of Kent has long suffered peculiarly from the poverty of its labour ing population. To the traveller who merely passes through it, it looks like a fruitful garden, capable of affording support to as many ih habitants as can gather round its neat towns, or settle on the borders of its orchards, hop-grounds, and corn-fields yet it is certain that nowhere, not in the alleys of Manchester or the cellars of London, - is more abject, hopeless poverty to be found than in some of the country parishes of Kent. One class murmurs about tithes, and rages about poor-rates, while another sets law at defiance, and fills the country with news of mur derons poaching expeditions, and of midnight fires - guilty adventures, of which the first brings in only a precarious and dearly' bought advantage, and the other is the most effectual method that could be devised for increasing the very evils under which the people are groaning.

Description : The author's main zeal is for the Cushite race, for which he is as zealous as is Max Muller for the younger Aryan dynasty. He holds that the earliest civilization of which we have any trace, dating back to 7000 B. c. at the latest, was that commonly called the Ethiopic, but which really had its seat on the Arabian side of the Red Sea, and had no connection with over the way. Of this civilization, Egypt and Chaldea were but the children; it colonized the valleys of the Nile and Euphrates; it occupied India, Western Asia, and extensive regions of Africa. Commerce, manufactures, and astronomy all reached a high development during that great epoch of colonization. It was a branch of this race which established what is now called the Age of Bronze in Western Europe, and which built the temples of Abury and Stonehenge. The Cushites taught the Northern nations the worship of Baal, whose midnight fires on midsummer eve are hardly yet extinguished in England, and have testified to that remote idolatry as surely as the lingering fifth of November fires on our Essex hills still keep alive the memory of Guy Fawkes.
