Moskau, 1922. Der genussfreudige Lebemann Graf Rostov wird verhaftet und zu lebenslangem Hausarrest verurteilt, ausgerechnet im Hotel Metropol, dem ersten Haus am Platz. Er muss alle bisher genossenen Privilegien aufgeben und eine Arbeit als Hilfskellner annehmen. Rostov mit seinen 30 Jahren ist ein äußerst liebenswürdiger, immer optimistischer Gentleman. Trotz seiner eingeschränkten Umstände lebt er ganz seine Überzeugung, dass selbst kleine gute Taten einer chaotischen Welt Sinn verleihen. Aber ihm bleibt nur der Blick aus dem Fenster, während draußen Russland stürmische Dekaden durchlebt. Seine Stunde kommt, als eine alte Freundin ihm ihre kleine Tochter anvertraut. Das Kind ändert Rostovs Leben von Grund auf. Für das Mädchen und sein Leben wächst der Graf über sich hinaus.

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson traverse the British Isles and the Italian Peninsula in a rousing series of new adventures After a thrilling jaunt in the Far East, Holmes and Watson return to England to address an inheritance left by one of Watson’s relatives in Cornwall, half of which he gave to his dear friend, Sherlock Holmes. Financially secure, the two are now free to spend as much time on Baker Street and the Continent as they please, and the duo find themselves as comfortable in Rome on the banks of the Tiber as the Thames. As Holmes rationalizes and ratiocinates his way through case after case, from “The Case of Two Bohemes” to “A Singular Event in Tranquebar,” it’s all in a day’s work, until clues surface that his great nemesis, Professor James Moriarty, might still be alive . . .

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to through caution to the wind and truly follow your heart? Well, as they say, be careful what you wish for; one woman found out when she risked everything to start life anew, and ended up surrounded by Italians. Not being of Italian heritage definitely complicated an already impossible situation, but was ultimately responsible for helping her find her true self in the kitchen. With unquestionable aversion to the path suddenly before her, the reader is along for a humorous ride as she immerses herself in all things Italian, while attempting to blend a family of her own. For her ambitious efforts she not only earns a place at the table, but ends up with an Italian table of her own and the family of her dreams. Included are some favorite recipes, entertaining language lessons, and her secret for blending families. A native Southern Californian, Jan Greco's educational focus was in preparation for positions in the accounting profession. While raising her family and attending college, she also did assistant teaching of math and English in elementary schools. For twenty years she was controller and office manager for her husband's prominent mechanical contracting firm. They closed the business several years ago, and retired to a very different, unstructured lifestyle in the mountains of Lake Arrowhead. The peace and solitude of such a beautiful resort became the catalyst for recording the amazing journey of her second helping in life. She and her favorite Italian now divide their time between homes in the desert of La Quinta, and a community across from the harbor in Dana Point. All their children have remained close and well within driving distance of either residence so the whole family can be together whenever she sets her Italian table.

John Florio is best known to the present day for his great translation of Montaigne's Essays. To his contemporaries he was one of the most conspicuous figures of the literary and social cliques of the time. By her reconstruction of Florio's life and character, Frances Yates' 1934 text throws light upon the vexed question of his relations with Shakespeare.
