Mit hinreißend lakonischem Witz erzählt Daniel Wisser von vier Generationen einer Familie, durch die sich die Gräben eines ganzen Landes ziehen. Er zeichnet das Bild einer Gesellschaft, der langsam dämmert, dass sich der Traum vom ungebremsten Fortschritt gegen sie wendet.

Victor ist Mitt Mit hinreißend lakonischem Witz erzählt Daniel Wisser von vier Generationen einer Familie, durch die sich die Gräben eines ganzen Landes ziehen. Er zeichnet das Bild einer Gesellschaft, der langsam dämmert, dass sich der Traum vom ungebremsten Fortschritt gegen sie wendet.

Die Welt um Victor Jarno hat sich verändert — und wie immer hat er es zu spät bemerkt. Victor ist Mitte vierzig, kinderlos und der letzte Sozialdemokrat in einer Wiener Familie mit sozialistischen Wurzeln bis in die Kaiserzeit. Nur scheint sich niemand daran zu erinnern, selbst seine Mutter und seine Tante hat der politische Rechtsruck erfasst. Mit der Rückkehr von Victors Cousine Karoline aus dem Ausland, flammt eine dreißig Jahre alte heimliche Liebe wieder auf: Beide verachten e-Scooter, Stand-up-Paddling und die regierenden Rechtsparteien. Doch als aus ihnen ein Paar wird, droht die Familie an dem Skandal zu zerbrechen. Noch dazu vererbt ihnen die Großmutter vor ihrem Tod ihr Haus auf dem Land, in das Cousine und Cousin nun zum Missfallen ihrer Eltern, die das Haus gerne geerbt hätten, einziehen. Was aber lässt sich in einer Welt, in der ihre Ideale im Niedergang begriffen sind und ihre Familie zerbricht, noch retten?

In 1925, a young woman swimmer will defy the odds to swim the English Channel--a chance to make history.

London 1925: Fifteen-year-old Catherine Quick longs to feel once more the warm waters of her home, to strike out into the ocean off the Torres Strait Islands in Australia and swim, as she's done since she was a child. But now, orphaned and living with her aunt Louisa in London, Catherine feels that everything she values has been stripped away from her.

Louisa, a London surgeon who fought boldly for equality for women, holds strict views on the behavior of her young niece. She wants Catherine to pursue an education, just as she herself did. Catherine is rebellious, and Louisa finds it difficult to block painful memories from her past. It takes the enigmatic American banker Manfred Lear Black to convince Louisa to bring Catherine to New York where Catherine can train to become the first woman to swim the English Channel. And finally, Louisa begins to listen to what her own heart tells her.

In. My. Bed.

And how the hell am I supposed to resist him?

Constantine
I'll be the first to admit I've royally screwed up, but what can I say?
I was a stupid teen who lost his dad and spiraled out of control.
Almost a decade later, I'm still trying to make amends.
The last thing I need is my family's arch-nemesis wading into my life like he's got all the answers.
Except... I really need money, and the arrogant jerk offered me a job.

I can deal with Micah's attitude.
My attraction to him? That's different.
He's my boss, not my boyfriend.
And he's way too old for me.
But God, he's gorgeous.
Dominant.
Compelling.

I don't want to want him...
But I can't turn away.
