The Winter Queen by Jane StevensonExiled in 17th-century Amsterdam, Elizabeth of Bohemia, sister of England's King Charles I and widow of the dethroned Elector Palatine, spends her days in an agony of rumor and worried uncertainty about her children, who are scattered across Europe. Pelagius van Overmeer, ex-slave and formerly a prince of the Yoruba tribe of Oyo, comes to her attention as a learned and pious man whose arcane skill as a seer may give assurance of her sons' safety. Aside from such insights, Pelagius gives Elizabeth his companionship and his love, and when they secretly marry, he is installed in Elizabeth's household. History mentions no royal prince of Africa, no slave lover, and no black physician in the life of the Winter Queen, but readers will be glad to believe that Pelagius existed for her as they read this well-crafted, moody portrait of royal striving and human need. While this novel is not as thickly plotted as Dorothy Dunnett's masterly Niccolo series, fans of Dunnett will enjoy Stevenson's (London Bridges) complex characterization and marvelous rendering of the dark ambiance of the Dutch Golden Age. Readers will be impatient for the second book in a projected trilogy so that they can find out what will happen to the secret harbored in Middleburg. Highly recommended for most fiction collections.

Jane Eyre (Illustrated Junior Library) by Charlotte BrontëVERY GOOD CONDITIONPERFECT ADDITION TO YOUR CLASSIC COLLECTIONEarly responses to Jane Eyre, first published in 1847, were mixed. Some held the book to be anti-Christian, others were disturbed by a heroine so proud, self-willed, and essentially unfeminine. The modern reader may well have trouble understanding what all the fuss was about. On the surface a fairly conventional Gothic romance (poor orphan governess is hired by rich, brooding Byronic hero-type), Jane Eyre hardly seems the stuff from which revolutions are made. But the story is very much about the nature of human freedom and equality, and if Jane was seen as something of a renegade in nineteenth-century England, it is because her story is that of a woman who struggles for self-definition and determination in a society that too often denies her that right. But self-determination does not mean untrammeled freedom for men or women. Rochester, that thorny masculine beast whom Jane eventually falls for, is a man who sets his own laws and manipulates the lives of those around him; before he can enter into a marriage of equals with Jane he must undergo a spiritual transformation. Should the lesson sound dry, it's not. Jane Eyre is full of drama: fires, storms, attempted murder, and a mad wife conveniently stashed away in the attic. This is very sexy stuff - another reason Victorian critics weren't quite sure what to make of it

Baby Shoes Size Guide:
Little babies bring joy and happiness to our everyday life. The first steps baby takes are important for both them and their parents, since it marks the start of exciting journey to the mysterious outer world. Parents should remember that baby’s feet are extremely sensitive and it is very important to choose right baby shoes that provide comfort and protection to the gentle toes and feet.
In the modern world babies do not need real shoes during their first year of life. Usually, they are able to stand themselves at about 10-11 month old so it makes no sense to hurry with purchasing “adult-like” footwear. Soft booties and socks do an excellent job keeping feet and toes warm and protected.
Baby shoes should be about 1 cm longer that foot to provide extra room for the foot to move and grow. Baby feet grow fast and you should take this fact into account when choosing baby shoes size, otherwise you might end up buying new footwear every couple of weeks.
It is recommended to buy baby shoes made of natural breathable materials, like genuine leather. Choose only soft-sole shoes during the first two years for the natural development of young feet.
We have prepared a baby shoes size chart to help you choose right shoe size for your baby. Make sure you know the size of your baby foot before using this table.
Please note that the table above should be used as a general guideline only. In case you fall between sizes we recommend going up to the next full size.
