BOOK EXCERPT:

The fascinating and very moving story of the lovers, lawyers, judges and activists behind the groundbreaking Supreme Court case that led to one of the most important, national civil rights victories in decades—the legalization of same-sex marriage. In June 2015, the Supreme Court made same-sex marriage the law in all fifty states in a decision as groundbreaking as Roe v Wade and Brown v Board of Education. Through insider accounts and access to key players, this definitive account reveals the dramatic and previously unreported events behind Obergefell v Hodges and the lives at its center. This is a story of law and love—and a promise made to a dying man who wanted to know how he would be remembered. Twenty years ago, Jim Obergefell and John Arthur fell in love in Cincinnati, Ohio, a place where gays were routinely picked up by police and fired from their jobs. In 2013, the Supreme Court ruled that the federal government had to provide married gay couples all the benefits offered to straight couples. Jim and John—who was dying from ALS—flew to Maryland, where same-sex marriage was legal. But back home, Ohio refused to recognize their union, or even list Jim’s name on John’s death certificate. Then they met Al Gerhardstein, a courageous attorney who had spent nearly three decades advocating for civil rights and who now saw an opening for the cause that few others had before him. This forceful and deeply affecting narrative—Part Erin Brockovich, part Milk, part Still Alice—chronicles how this grieving man and his lawyer, against overwhelming odds, introduced the most important gay rights case in U.S. history. It is an urgent and unforgettable account that will inspire readers for many years to come.

BOOK EXCERPT:

On his return after six years’ fighting with the Duke of Wellington in the Napoleonic Wars, Colonel Romney Wood, who has just become Lord Heywood, is horrified at the state of the country he left behind, where agricultural labourers are now starving, food shops are bare and Luddites lay waste new agricultural machinery. Worse still his own estate is almost bankrupt and he has to find something to sell to save it and his loyal staff from penury. He is considerably hampered because his grandfather has legally entailed everything of value onto future generations of Lord Heywoods and so he cannot dispose of virtually anything without the Trustees’ approval, which he knows will not be forthcoming. Scouring Heywood Abbey, his country home, for possible items to sell, he is astonished when he stumbles across something he is soon to prize beyond price – a beautiful, fawn-like young girl with deep blue eyes in a white diaphanous nightgown. She is an interloper and a runaway, hiding from her wicked uncle, who is forcing her into marriage with a man she despises. Her name is Lalita. But more than that she will not tell Lord Heywood. Yet slowly she reveals more of herself to him – and with each revelation the bond between them grows. And in spite of himself Lord Heywood is falling in love. They are two people with nothing left to lose and maybe only love to win.

BOOK EXCERPT:

We leave Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice at the point where Mr. Darcy, having proposed to Elizabeth Bennet and been summarily rejected, takes heed of her scorn and rectifies the mistakes he has made. He tells the truth about the charming but unscrupulous Mr. Wickham and promises to rectify his other mistake, which is that of separating Mr. Bingley from her sister, Jane, thus breaking her heart. He bribes Wickham to marry Elizabeth's youngest sister, Lydia, who has run off with him to forestall the ruination of the Bennet family. Elizabeth, her feelings for him changed radically as she realizes his inherent goodness and regrets her prejudice against him, welcomes the increasing intimacy between herself and Mr. Darcy. And when trouble rears its ugly head, they find that their love wins over every adversity.
