Award Winner The last thing eighteen-year-old Wilhelmina "Willa" MacCarthy wants is to be a nun. It’s 1936, and as the only daughter amongst four sons, her Irish–Catholic family is counting on her to take her vows—but Willa’s found another calling. Each day she sneaks away to help Doctor Katherine Winston in her medical clinic in San Francisco’s Richmond District. Keeping secrets from her family only becomes more complicated when Willa agrees to help the doctor at a field hospital near the new bridge being built over the Golden Gate. Willa thinks she can handle her new chaotic life, but as she draws closer to a dashing young ironworker and risks grow at the bridge, she discovers that hiding from what she truly wants may be her biggest lie of all.

When Lena's younger sister Fressa is found dead, their whole Viking clan mourns—but it is Lena alone who never recovers. Fressa is the sister that should've lived, and Lena cannot rest until she knows exactly what killed Fressa and why—and how to bring her back. She strikes a dark deal with Hela, the Norse goddess of death, and begins a new double life to save her sister. But as Lena gets closer to bringing Fressa back, she dredges up dangerous discoveries about her own family and finds herself in the middle of a devastating plan to spur Ragnarök –a deadly chain of events leading to total world destruction. Still, with her sister's life in the balance, Lena is willing to risk it all. She's even willing to kill. How far will she go before the darkness consumes her?

Since early times, humans have explored the space below their feet for different purposes: to flee persecution and war, to find protection from severe climates, to improve urban life—and more recently, to solve environmental problems. A rare look at old and new subterranean structures from an architect's perspective, this seminal book examines the underworld through the lenses of wartime, life and death, religious and secular rituals, and adaptive reuse. The atlas of 80+ international projects ranges widely in time period and type, from a house in a defunct nuclear silo to an Arctic seed bank, a Beirut nightclub, art venues, an Italian winery, and a monastery carved into a mountain. All are surprising examples of how invisible man-made spaces follow the same cultural and economic cues as their visible counterparts and are places where we store, hide, repress, and live.

Open the car door, get in, drive off. And drive on. And on, and explore the world. Who doesn’t dream of such an adventure? Mr & Mrs T have lived it, giving up everything to start a new sustainable life on the road in their Tesla. Sustainability, climate protection, saving resources: we hear these concepts every day. So, too, do we hear of those free spirits who quit their regular day-to-day lives, leave everything behind, and set off to explore the world. Mr & Mrs T show us just how to combine such personal freedom with a sustainable planet: electromobility. In 2016, the pair bought an electric car. Two years later, they quit their jobs, closed the door on their apartment, said goodbye to their family and friends, and embarked on an electric driving adventure around the world. They are still travelling today, sharing their impressions and tips on their popular website. The #recharge edition presents the best of the couple’s eco adventures through Europe. With an informative section on e-mobility and charging technology, as well as route planning and accommodation recommendations, it is a fantastic guide for anyone looking into sustainable travel in Europe. E-mobility is here, and with a new kind of sustainable tourism that’s as good for the natural world we admire, as it is for us.

Learn how Vincent van Gogh’s still life paintings, alive with ecstatic color and emotional exuberance, hold the key to understanding this complex artist’s life and work. From his first compositions to the colorful flower images of his late years, Vincent van Gogh repeatedly painted still lifes. In this genre, he could try out various pictorial techniques – from depicting space through light and shadow to experimentation with color. Although many of his still life compositions employed traditional approaches to the genre, he ultimately formulated an unmistakably unique artistic style. This lavishly illustrated book revisits the development of Van Gogh’s career and focuses on his still-life paintings, offering new insights into the working process and creative evolution of one of the most radical innovators in the history of modern art.
