The Haven

The Haven

Autor: Carol Lynch Williams

Número de Páginas: 224

For the teens at The Haven, the outside world, just beyond the towering stone wall that surrounds the premises, is a dangerous unknown. It has always been this way, ever since the hospital was established in the year 2020. But The Haven is more than just a hospital; it is their home. It is all they know. Everything is strictly monitored: education, exercise, food, and rest. The rules must be followed to keep the children healthy, to help control the Disease that has cast them as Terminals, the Disease that claims limbs and lungs—and memories. But Shiloh is different; she remembers everything. Gideon is different, too. He dreams of a cure, of rebellion against the status quo. What if everything they've been told is a lie? What if The Haven is not the safe place it claims to be? And what will happen if Shiloh starts asking dangerous questions? Powerful and emotional, The Haven takes us inside a treacherous world in which nothing is as it seems. "Imagine Anna Quindlen or Sue Miller turning her attention to writing a young adult novel, and you have an idea of what Carol Lynch Williams has done for early teen readers." (Audrey Couloumbis, author of the Newbery Honor Book Getting Near ...

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

At Boston's Havenhouse Nursing Home, Will Howard, a retired professor of far eastern studies, and Joe Fiske, a former construction worker, join five women residents to begin a therapy group led by Meredith Saunders, a medical student. The Director of Nursing, Emily Rogers, doubts they are capable of having meaningful discussions, but also fears that the group will disrupt the smooth operation of her nursing home. As the group members meet with Meredith and share each other's stories of illness and family problems, they develop new friendships. The support they give each other emboldens them to confront restrictions and indignities they face daily in the nursing home. When group members break the rules so they can watch the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games, Mrs. Rogers sees her prediction come true. She insists they stop therapy and engage in a more harmless activity. Inspired by Will and assisted by the staff, the group designs and supervises the creation of a Japanese garden in their backyard. In so doing, they find new self-esteem and joy. But even while they relish this achievement, all is not well. Old problems reassert themselves and unsuspected developments threaten...

Though it hadn't killed him, the gunshot wound to his chest was going to keep Sheriff Aaron McBain out of commission for a while. So he spent his days thinking about where he'd seen Susannah Carvel's face before. By the time he'd recovered enough to recall that it had been on a Wanted poster, he couldn't believe that she was guilty of any crime. Let alone murder Susannah claimed that she'd been framed, but he would need to buy some time to prove her innocence. Giving her his name was the only way Aaron could think of to keep her safe from harm and silence the local tongues whose gossip might expose her. And he was beginning to realize that protecting Susannah had become the only thing in the world that truly mattered.
