Von überall her hat es die Langzeitgäste in die Pension "Beach House" am Crystal Lake in Illinois verschlagen. Hier versuchen sie, im Leben wieder Fuß zu fassen. Genauso wie June, die das Gästehaus führt - eine bunte Welt, die für ihre sechzehnjährige Tochter Julia und ihre Geschwister sowie deren Stiefvater George das Zuhause ist. Nach außen hin scheint es eine intakte Familie zu sein, deren Glück durch die Geburt der kleinen Tochter Snookie vollkommen zu werden scheint. Doch durchleben die Kinder Fred, Dan und Julia mit den harten Regeln und Verboten ihres Stiefvaters eine Jugend voller Angst und Schrecken. Obwohl Julias Mutter mit dem Verhalten ihres zweiten Mannes nicht einverstanden ist, unternimmt sie kaum etwas, um ihren Kindern aus erster Ehe zur Seite zu stehen. Als auch noch der Stiefbruder Bobby ins "Beach House" einzieht, macht Julia Erfahrungen, über die sie mit niemandem sprechen kann und die sich wie finstere Schatten über ihr Leben legen. Voller Sehnsucht erwartet sie die Rückkehr ihres geliebten, aber verschollenen Vaters, der sie aus diesem Albtraum befreien soll. Doch sein Verschwinden ist von einem Geheimnis umgeben. So verbringt Julia viele Stunden mit vergeblichem Warten und Hoffen. Oft flüchtet sie sich in das verwunschene und geheimnisvolle Reich der Bücherschätze des Gästehauses, die sie in Welten führen, die so anders sind als ihre eigene und durch die in Julia die Erkenntnis reift, dass niemand außer ihr selbst erlösen kann. Als schließlich der verhasste Stiefvater die Familie wegen einer anderen Frau verlässt und Mutter June das Schicksal des Vaters endlich enthüllt, ist für Julia die Zeit des Aufbruchs in die Freiheit gekommen.

The Civil War Diary of a Common Soldier: Willia...
43,90 CHF *

William Wiley was typical of most soldiers who served in the armies of the North and South during the Civil War. A poorly educated farmer from Peoria, he enlisted in the summer of 1862 in the 77th Illinois Infantry, a unit that participated in most of the major campaigns waged in Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, and Alabama. Recognizing that the great conflict would be a defining experience in his life, Wiley attempted to maintain a diary during his years of service. Frequent illnesses kept him from the ranks for extended periods of time, and he filled the many gaps in his diary after the war. When viewed as a postwar memoir rather than a period diary, Wiley's narrative assumes great importance as it weaves a fascinating account of the army life of Billy Yank. Rather than focus on the noble and heroic aspects of war, Wiley reveals how basic the lives of most soldiers actually were. He describes at length his experiences with sickness, both on land and at sea, and the monotony of daily military life. He seldom mentions army leaders, evidence of how little private soldiers knew of them or the larger drama in which they played a part. Instead, he writes fondly of his small circle of regimental friends, fills his pages with refreshing anecdotes, records troop movements, details contact with civilians, and describes the appearance of the countryside through which he passed. In the epilogue, Terrence J. Winschel recounts Wiley's complex and often frustrating struggle to obtain his military pension after the war. Wiley was an ingenious misspeller, and his words are transcribed just as he wrote them more than 130 years ago. Through his simple language, we come to know and care for this commonman who made a common soldier. His story transcends the barriers of time and distance, and places the reader in the midst of men who experienced both the horror and the tedium of war. Winschel's rich annotation fleshes out Wiley's narrative and provides an enlightening h
