Fernando, joven editor hijo de un republicano represaliado, decide huir de una España abatida por la Guerra Civil. En su aventura le acompañan sus amigos Catalina y Eulogio, cada uno escapando de sus propias circunstancias. Los tres jóvenes viven una gran historia de amistad y lealtad a lo largo del tiempo que les lleva a recorrer escenarios como la Alejandría de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, el París ocupado, Lisboa, Praga, Boston o Santiago de Chile.
Un canto a la amistad
Fernando, Catalina y Eulogio han crecido juntos en un barrio madrileño cercano al convento de la Encarnación. La Guerra Civil acaba de concluir y todos ellos intentan sobreponerse a los estragos que ha causado en sus vidas y las de sus seres queridos.
Fernando vive con su madre, Isabel, aguardando la liberación de su padre, encarcelado por sus ideales republicanos y confiando en un indulto que nunca llega.
Catalina vive en la misma calle de la Encarnación. Su familia se ha arruinado durante la guerra y, para poder hacer frente a las deudas, su padre pretende casarla con un hombre por el que no siente ningún afecto.
Eulogio es quien más ha perdido a causa de la guerra. Su padre murió luchando y él mismo ha quedado lisiado tras un acto heroico en el frente en el que salvó la vida de Marvin, un joven hispanista estadounidense que llegó a España en el 36 para estudiar la literatura del siglo de oro y, al estallar la guerra, decidió quedarse y plasmar el dolor del conflicto en un celebrado poemario.
Las perspectivas de futuro son cada vez más negras para los tres jóvenes que deciden unir sus destinos y emprender una nueva vida lejos de Madrid para poner a salvo lo poco que les queda.
“You won’t kill, my child, you won’t kill. Because no man is the same after having taken the life of another man.”
Fernando, a young editor who is the son of a persecuted republican, decides to flee from a Spain suffering from civil war. He is accompanied on his adventure by his friends Catalina and Eulogio, each escaping their own circumstances. The three young people experience a great story of friendship and loyalty as they traverse settings like the Alexandria of World War II, occupied Paris, Lisbon, Prague, Boston, and Santiago in Chile.
A song of friendship
Madrid, 1941. Fernando, Catalina, and Eulogio have grown up together in a Madrid neighborhood near the Encarnación convent. The Civil War has just ended and they are all attempting to overcome the pain it has caused in their lives and those of their loved ones.
Fernando lives with his mother, Isabel, awaiting the release of his father, who has been jailed for his republican ideals, and counting on a pardon that never comes.
Catalina lives on the same street as the convent. Her family has been ruined during the war, and, to face their debts, her father intends to marry her to a man for whom she feels nothing. Eulogio is the one who has lost the most due to the war. His father died fighting, and he himself was crippled from a heroic act in which he saved the life of Marvin, a young U.S. Hispanist who arrived in Spain in 1936 to study Golden Age literature and later decided to stay and capture the pain of war in a famous poetry collection.
The future prospects seem ever bleaker for the three young people who decide to unite their destinies and start a new life far from Madrid in order to save what little they have left.

Rome, AD 68. Vespasian is tasked with the impossible. Should he quell the revolt in Judaea, as Nero the emperor has instructed, or must he resort to the unthinkable and sabotage his own campaign? If his conquest succeeds, he risks becoming the sole object of the mad emperor's jealousy. If he fails, then his punishment will be severe. The fate of his men and his beloved son, Titus, all hang in the balance.
But unknown to Vespasian, Nero has committed suicide, catapulting Rome into political turmoil. Sabinus, Vespasian's brother, is caught between the warring factions of Aulus Vitellius, a cruel opportunist, and the noble Marcus Salvius Otho, who finds himself severely outnumbered. Seeing no aid on the horizon, Sabinus must rely on wit, and wit alone, to ensure the safety of his family.
With a contested throne and an army at his disposal, now may finally be Vespasian's time - to ascend, to conquer, to achieve what countless prophecies have foretold and take control of Rome itself. Will Vespasian, at long last, be the one to wear the purple?

Apesar de este livro tratar da moral de guerras em geral, e não apenas das relacionadas à perseguição aos cristãos, em virtude, porém, de ser esta uma injustiça que vem servindo para justificar guerras ao longo do tempo, sendo nos dias de hoje o fator mais discutido pela Igreja quando questiona os conflitos militares, se discute aqui mais detalhadamente este aspecto do problema.

Carwyn’s and Ahmad’s paths cross, and their fates are bound together. Both are forever changed, not only by their experience of war, but also by the parallel discrimination and betrayal they face.
Ruqaya Izzidien’s evocative debut novel is rich with the heartbreak and passion that arise when personal loss and political zeal collide, and offers a powerful retelling of the history of British intervention in Iraq.

Me and Gul and Zia and Dawoud out on the roads of Logar, together, for the first time, hoping to get Budabash back home before nightfall
It is 2005 in Logar, Afghanistan, and twelve-year-old Marwand has returned from America with his family for the summer. He loses the tip of his finger to the village dog, Budabash, who then escapes. Marwand's quest to find Budabash, over 99 nights, begins.
The resulting search is an exuberantly told adventure, one that takes Marwand and his cousins across Logar, through mazes, into floods and unexpected confrontations with American soldiers. Moving between celebrations and tragedies, Marwand must confront family secrets and his own identity as he returns to a home he's missed for six years. Deeply humorous and surprisingly tender, 99 Nights in Logar is a vibrant exploration of the power of stories – the ones we tell each other, and the ones we find ourselves in.
