It is 1923 and Evangeline English, keen lady cyclist, arrives with her sister Lizzie at the ancient Silk Route city of Kashgar to help establish a Christian mission. Lizzie is in thrall to their forceful and unyielding leader Millicent, but Eva's motivations for leaving her bourgeois life back at home are less clear-cut. As they attempt to navigate their new home and are met with resistance and calamity, Eva commences work on her book, A Lady Cyclist's Guide to Kashgar...

In present-day London another story is beginning. Frieda, a young woman adrift in her own life, opens her front door one night to find a man sleeping on the landing. In the morning he is gone, leaving on the wall an exquisite drawing of a long-tailed bird and a line of Arabic script.

Tayeb, who has fled to England from Yemen, has arrived on Frieda's doorstep just as she learns that she is the next-of-kin to a dead woman she has never heard of: a woman whose abandoned flat contains many surprises - among them an ill-tempered owl. The two wanderers begin an unlikely friendship as their worlds collide, and they embark on a journey that is as great, and as unexpected, as Eva's.

A stunning debut peopled by unforgettable characters, A Lady Cyclist's Guide to Kashgar is an extraordinary story of inheritance and the search for belonging in a fractured and globalised world.

A Chemist's Guide To Valence Bond Theory

RRP $381.99

Modern valence bond theory and state-of-the-art methodologies<br> <br> Since the 1980s, valence bond (VB) theory has enjoyed a renaissance characterized both in the qualitative application of the theory and in the development of new methods for its computer implementation. Written by leading authorities, this is the premier reference on current VB theory and applications in a pedagogical context, perhaps the first such attempt since Pauling's The Nature of the Chemical Bond. After an introduction, A Chemist's Guide to Valence Bond Theory pre-sents a practical system that can be applied to a variety of chemical problems in a uniform manner. Concise yet comprehensive, it includes:<br> *<br> <br> A tour of some VB outputs and terminology<br> *<br> <br> An explanation of basic VB theory<br> *<br> <br> A discussion of various applications of the VB method to chemical problems, encompassing bonding problems, aromaticity and antiaromaticity, the dioxygen molecule, polyradicals, excited states, organic reactions, inorganic/organometallic reactions, photochemical reactions, and catalytic reactions<br> *<br> <br> Samples of inputs/outputs and instructions for interpreting results<br> *<br> <br> A short programmable outline for converting molecular orbital wave functions to VB structures<br> *<br> <br> A guide for performing VB calculations<br> <br> Complete with exercises and answers at the end of chapters, numerous solved problems, and a glossary of terms and symbols, this is the authoritative guide for computational chemists, chemical physicists, and research chemists in organic and organometallic/inorganic chemistry concerned with reactivity and molecular structure. It is also an excellent text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students.

THEY CALL IT "THE CITY OF A HUNDRED ROWS."
"City of Dreams & Nightmare "is the first in a series of novels set in one of the most extraordinary fantasy settings since Gormenghast - the ancient vertical city of Thaiburley.

Having witnessed a murder in a part of the city he should never have been in, street thief Tom has to run for his life. Down through the vast city he is pursued by sky-borne assassins, sinister Kite Guards, and agents of a darker force intent on destabilising the whole city. Accused of the crime, he must use all of his knowledge of this ancient city to flee a certain death; his only ally is Kat, a renegade like him, but she has secrets of her own...

Do you pray? A recent poll asked this question of a broad sampling of Americans. Most (some 78%) answered "yes". These included both those who attend some form of worship service regularly and those who do not. Are your prayers answered? Again, the poll revealed that most people who pray do find that at least some of their prayers are answered. When we look at the usual gauges of our culture-TV, movies, newspapers, and magazines-we would hardly expect these findings. The secular influences that surround us seem much more the norm than does the head bowed in prayer. Certainly devotees of practically all major religions are encouraged to pray. But finding that large numbers of people actually do so is both surprising and comforting. Are you comfortable with the way you pray? The Gallup poll did not address this question. Many people feel inadequate in their efforts to communicate with God. For some, this inadequacy has led them to abandon the practice entirely. Others persist, knowing all the while that their prayer life could be much better. If you are in either of these groups, this book is addressed to you. I certainly do not know all the answers to an effective prayer life, and make no pretense to even be an expert in the field. But I have sought for years to better understand prayer, to raise my prayers above the common, everyday levels. In this book I will share some things I have learned, and perhaps one or two of these will resonate within you and aid you in your search. If so, I will have succeeded.
