Between Nice and Cannes lies one of the world's most beautiful palaces. Standing on more that twenty acres along the coast, the Eden-Roc is a legendary estate where time stands still behind the rustle of Alep Pines. This elegant home, with its Napolean III style, has been a refuge since 1869, first to artists and writers, then to the great European aristocracy before receiving celebrities, mostly in the springtime during the Cannes Film Festival. In a tribute to Côte d Azur, François Simon evokes the uniqueness of this discreet place, which for the first time opens its doors for a publication, offering an elegant look at never-before-seen photographs.

A novel of courage, hope and love... From her secret perch at the top of the stairs, seven-year-old Gabriella watches the guests arrive at her parents' lavish Manhattan home. The click, click click of her mother's high heels strikes terror into her heart, as she has been told that she is to blame for her mother's rage - and her father's failure to protect her. Her world is a confusing blend of terror, betrayal and pain, and Gabriella knows that there is no safe place for her to hide. When her parents' marriage collapses, her father disappears and her mother abandons her to a convent, where Gabriella's battered body and soul begin to mend amid the quiet safety and hushed rituals of the nuns. And when she grows into womanhood, young Father Joe Connors comes into her life. Like Gabriella, Joe is haunted by the pain of his childhood, and with her he takes the first steps towards healing. But their relationship leads to disaster as Joe must choose between the priesthood and Gabriella. She struggles to survive on her own in New York, where she seeks escape through her writing, until eventually she is able to find forgiveness, freedom from guilt, and healing from abuse. In this work of daring and compassion, Danielle Steel has created a vivid portrait of an abused child's broken world which will shock and move you to your very soul.

A memoir of the author's life while he was researching and writing a religious history called Les Martyrs, ou le Triomphe de la Religion Chretienne. The introduction includes the history of Athens and Sparta and an inquiry into religious traditions related to Jerusalem--specifically, the authenticity of claims made by religious tourists, such as visiting the actual tomb of Christ. The text of the diary is full of literary references and adventure. Unlike other travel diaries, the narrative flow is more like a novel and the entries are not just lists of weather reports, food, pretty sights, and some funny anecdotes. Since the author had a research purpose during his time there, Travels in Greece has a protagonist with a purpose.
