Summary : My name is Layla and I was born under an unlucky star. For a young girl growing up in India, this is bad news. But everything began to change for me one spring day in 1943, when three unconnected incidents, like tiny droplets on a lily leaf, tipped and rolled into one. It was that tiny shift in the cosmos, I believe, that tipped us together—me and Manik Deb. Layla Roy has defied the fates. Despite being born under an inauspicious horoscope, she is raised to be educated and independent by her eccentric grandfather, Dadamoshai. And, by cleverly manipulating the hand fortune has dealt her, she has even found love with Manik Deb—a man betrothed to another. All were minor miracles in India that spring of 1943, when young women's lives were predetermined—if not by the stars, then by centuries of family tradition and social order. Layla's life as a newly married woman takes her away from home and into the jungles of Assam, where the world's finest tea thrives on plantations run by native labor and British efficiency. Fascinated by this culture of whiskey-soaked expats who seem fazed by neither earthquakes nor man-eating leopards, she struggles to find her place among the prickly English wives with whom she is expected to socialize, and the peculiar servants she now finds under her charge. But navigating the tea-garden set will hardly be her biggest challenge. Layla's remote home is not safe from the powerful changes sweeping India on the heels of the Second World War. Their colonial society is at a tipping point, and Layla and Manik find themselves caught in a perilous racial divide that threatens their very lives.

Summary : The #1 New York Times bestselling author returns to the characters in Firefly Lane in her next blockbuster novel, Fly Away. Once, a long time ago, I walked down a night-darkened road called Firefly Lane, all alone, on the worst night of my life, and I found a kindred spirit. That was our beginning. More than thirty years ago. TullyandKate. You and me against the world. Best friends forever. But stories end, don't they? You lose the people you love and you have to find a way to go on. . . . Tully Hart has always been larger than life, a woman fueled by big dreams and driven by memories of a painful past. She thinks she can overcome anything until her best friend, Kate Ryan, dies. Tully tries to fulfill her deathbed promise to Kate---to be there for Kate's children---but Tully knows nothing about family or motherhood or taking care of people. Sixteen-year-old Marah Ryan is devastated by her mother's death. Her father, Johnny, strives to hold the family together, but even with his best efforts, Marah becomes unreachable in her grief. Nothing and no one seems to matter to her . . . until she falls in love with a young man who makes her smile again and leads her into his dangerous, shadowy world. Dorothy Hart---the woman who once called herself Cloud---is at the center of Tully's tragic past. She repeatedly abandoned her daughter, Tully, as a child, but now she comes back, drawn to her daughter's side at a time when Tully is most alone. At long last, Dorothy must face her darkest fear: Only by revealing the ugly secrets of her past can she hope to become the mother her daughter needs. A single, tragic choice and a middle-of-the-night phone call will bring these women together and set them on a poignant, powerful journey of redemption. Each has lost her way, and they will need each one another---and maybe a miracle---to transform their lives. An emotionally complex, heart-wrenching novel about love, motherhood, loss, and new beginnings, Fly Away reminds us that where there is life, there is hope, and where there is love, there is forgiveness. Told with her trademark powerful storytelling and illuminating prose, Kristin Hannah reveals why she is one of the most beloved writers of our day.

Summary : This book is based on real facts. The insects described here represent real people, with feelings and emotions that actually happened. To portray this story, I was used the artistic resource called fable. According to Vigotsky (1999, p. 104), "The fable is one way to transfer knowledge from complex relationships, on everyday life, of human character, in short, of everything that concerns the ethical aspect of human life." The fable is a figurative resource that uses personifications of human characteristics, represented in animals, insects or other symbolic artifacts. These resources become powerful because it can transfer ethics and knowledge to children in a playful way. In addition, the fable serves as a therapy to the writer, because they can externalize moments and feelings, in a simplified art. The fable can transform difficult feelings into acceptable feelings, because it explains the shadow which we have through a colored light.Viviane Schneider is Alan's mother and PhD in Engineering and Knowledge Management from the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC). She works with research and development of technologies, analysis and data science. She writes children's books for tells Alan about the story of her life in a playful way. In this book "The Bee and the Firefly," Viviane describes in a fable format the love story that occurred between her and Jacob. They have different nationalities, and they taught each other their languages, culture and feelings. between mistakes and hits, came a love that results in their family. Because her child is bilingual, the story is told in Portuguese and English. Thus, both parents can read the story to him. "Every child needs a frame of reference. The children need to know where they came from, and most of all, they need to know who are the people they call parents. That's why I came up with the idea of writing books, to tell Alan who we are." - Says Viviane.Este livro é baseado em fatos reais. Os personagens insetos aqui descritos, representam pessoas reais, com sentimentos e emoções que realmente aconteceram. Para retratar essa história foi utilizado o recurso artístico chamado de fábula. Segundo Vigotsky (1999, p. 104), "A fábula é um dos meios de conhecimento das complexas relações do dia-a-dia, do caráter humano, em suma, de tudo o que diz respeito ao aspecto ético da vida humana". A fábula é um recurso figurativo que utiliza personificações de características humanas, representadas em animais, insetos ou outros artefatos simbólicos. Esses recursos tornam-se poderosos por permitir a transferência de ética e conhecimento às crianças. Além disso, a fábula também serve como terapia para o escritor, ao externalizar momentos e sentimentos em uma arte simplificada e lúdica. A fábula pode deixar mais palatáveis os sentimentos de difícil aceitação, pois transforma a sombra que temos em nós, em uma luz colorida. Viviane Schneider é mãe do Alan e Doutora em Engenharia e Gestão do Conhecimento pela Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC). Trabalha com pesquisa e desenvolvimento de tecnologias, análise e ciência de dados. Ela escreve livros infantis para contar ao Alan sobre a história de sua vida, de forma lúdica. Neste livro "A Abelha e o Vagalume", Viviane descreve em formato de fábula, a história de amor que ocorreu entre ela e Jacob. Os dois, de nacionalidades diferentes, encontraram-se e ensinaram um ao outro suas linguagens, cultura e sentimentos. Entre erros e acertos, surgiu um amor que resultou na formação de sua família. Por seu filho ser bilingue, a história é contada em português e Inglês. Desta forma tanto o pai quanto a mãe podem ler a história para ele. "Toda criança precisa de um referencial. Precisa saber de onde veio, e principalmente, precisa saber quem são as pessoas a quem ela chama de pais. Por isso surgiu a ideia de escrever livros para contar ao Alan quem somos nós." - Diz Viviane.
