Vergiss nie: Ich liebe dich!

Author: Rachel Anderson, Kristian Anderson Illustrator: 0 Format: eBook Release Date: 01/09/2015

Es gibt Lovestorys. Und es gibt die Geschichte von Kristian und Rachel. Kristian ist ein starker Medienmann, der wenig Zweifel kennt: fit, frech, fromm und frohlich. Bis in seinem Blog diese drei Satze stehen:Ich bin 34 Jahre alt. Ich habe eine hbsche Frau und zwei Jungs. Ich habe Krebs. Dieses Buch ist seine Geschichte. Eine Geschichte von Liebe und Schmerz. Aus der Perspektive eines starken Mannes erzhlt: mal rau bis krass, mal intim. Mal zrtlich und zum Schmunzeln, mal erschtternd. Immer offen, manchmal auch provozierend. Sein Buch ist eine doppelte Liebesgeschichte. Bei allen Hhen und Tiefen - in der Liebe von Kristian zu Rachel, die er ihr in einem weltweit Millionen mal angeklickten Video erklrt. Und auf Kristians Weg mit Gott, auf dem er hadert, aber nicht verzweifelt: Die Liebe bleibt.

Micky, trapped in a crumpled body and unable to speak, tells of his desire to be independent and his frustration with the suffocating love of his mother.

Asylum

Asylum

Author: Rachel Anderson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 02/06/2011

Set in an about-to-be-demolished high-rise block of flats, various characters have arrived from a variety of situations; their lives and their stories, interweave, change and affect each other, and travel towards deeply moving, often funny, happy and painful outcomes. At the core of the story are two asylum seekers: All fifteen-year-old Sunday wanted was a country that was democratic and respectful of human life. All eight-year-old Rosa wanted was somewhere safe, away from the bad things of the past. Through their eyes, ideas of Britain and belonging are explored. Moving, thoughtful, outstanding and unforgettable.
