Since the gripping conclusion of Once a Witch, Tamsin Greene has been haunted by her grandmother’s prophecy that she will soon be forced to make a crucial decision—one so terrible that it could harm her family forever. When she discovers that her enemy, Alistair Knight, went back in time to Victorian-era New York in order to destroy her family, Tamsin is forced to follow him into the past. Stranded all alone in the nineteenth century, Tamsin soon finds herself disguised as a lady’s maid in the terrifying mansion of the evil Knight family, avoiding the watchful eye of the vicious matron, La Spider, and fending off the advances of Liam Knight. As time runs out, both families square off in a thrilling display of magic. And to her horror, Tamsin finally understands the nature of her fateful choice.

From the introductory. "Sir Gawayne and the Green Knight" was published for the first time in Sir Fred. Madden's "Syr Gawayne, a collection of ancient romance-poems by Scottish and English authors, relating to that celebrated knight of the Round Table. London 1839. Printed for the Bannatyne Club." Prefixed to this edition is a description of the unique MS. Cott. Nero A x; in the same portion of which, and directly preceding our Sir Gawayne, are three other poems, written in the same hand and all (Madden ibid. p. 301) "most unquestionably composed by the author of the romance." Morris edited these three poems, under the titles of the Pearl, Cleanness, and Patience, for the E. E. T. S., in 1864 (2nd ed. 1869): and in the same year, for the same society, reedited Sir Gawayne and the Green Knight (2nd ed. likewise 1869). He agrees with Madden in attributing all four poems to one and the same author; alleging for his opinion similarity of dialect. Prof. Trautmann in his Habilitationssft. Leipzig 1876, "Uber Verfasser und Entstehungszeit einiger allit. Gdte. des Altengl." agrees with Morris, while deeming insufficient the ground assigned by him for his opinion. He himself reaches the same conclusion by applying "the best tests we can have" - those of wort- und phrasen-gebrauch und versbau. The Pearl, not being written in alliteration, falls without the limits of his subject. But in his article "Der Dichter Huchown und seine Werke" (Anglia I, p. 118 - 120) he attributes the Pearl to the author of the other three poems, and enumerates the reasons as follows: - I. 48 words rare or unknown in other poems and common to these 4. II. The similar treatment of the alliterative rhymes: a, the frequent alliteration - wh: w. b, the frequent alliteration of the spiritus asper with the spiritus lenis. c, such alliterations as excused: "scape, expoune: speche." He gives two examples from the Pearl. d, the frequent alliteration of combinations of 2 and 3 letters with each other (i.e. sp, cl, str, etc.), three in a line. Ground I. is not conclusive, because if we assume (as we have the right to assume, cf. Morris 2nd ed. of Allit. Poems, preface p. ix, note) another poet writing in precisely the same dialect, he would naturally make use of words which must have been common to that section of the country. Ground II. does not seem to me entirely convincing, because "a" and "b" are peculiarities which the Pearl shares with William of Palerne (cf. Trautmann Ub. Verf. u. Entst. p. 14); and "d" is found not only in Gaw. Cl. and Pat., but also, in a less degree, in Mort Arthure; and, to a much greater extent, in the Alexander Fragments. Trautmann is satisfied here with much lighter evidence than in the case of the poem of Gawain (cf. Ub. Verf. u. Entst.). Yet, apart from the complete proof he himself brings, there was, as I shall point out later for another purpose, an intimate connection between moral and descriptive passages of Gaw. and Cl.; while between the Pearl and the other poems there is no such link. It is separated from them by its versification; by the blending of allegory and personal feeling; by the different use too of the Bible, insomuch as while Cl. and Pat. are merely founded upon it, the author of the Pearl transports himself into the scenes in Revelations "which he describes."
Two green frogs love disobeying their mother. They always do the opposite of whatever she tells them to do—they stay in bed when she wakes them, they make a mess when she asks them to clean. They’re so contrary, they even croak backwards!
Save and Borrow Money the Smart Way | A Better Way to Save, Borrow, and Recycle Your Family's Money will show you and your family a better way to simultaneously save money and borrow money. If you are looking for the smartest way to save money, borrow money, or if you are contemplating how to get a loan, or even how to save for retirement, then read this book first. Most people believe the bank is the only place to save money or borrow money, and IRA's and 401K's are the only place to save for retirement. However, a bank savings account doesn't allow you to keep earning money when you take money out of the account to pay for an expense. Likewise, neither 401K's nor IRA's allow you to borrow money from them without severe limitations, potentially significant penalties and taxes, and you'll miss out on any potential market gains. There is a smarter way to save and borrow with more flexibility so that your money works much harder for you and allows your family to keep more in their pocket. If you are open to listening to an idea that has been around for close to 200 years and stood the test of time, then consider looking at a participating whole life insurance policy. A participating whole life insurance policy, specifically built with a high cash value as part of the infinite banking concept, allows you to save money and borrow money with much greater efficiency and superior financial performance than any other system you are currently using. This is due to the fact that a properly designed participating whole life policy allows you to get safe, tax-deferred growth and allows you to simultaneously borrow money from the cash value without impacting the growth of that money. Unlike a bank savings account or a bank loan, you can literally get your money working in two different directions at once so you can live better today while saving for tomorrow.If you currently have or are contemplating owning a bank savings account, credit cards, student loans, personal loans, business loans, or car loans, then you need to read this book. Even if you think you are financially savvy and pay cash for all of your major expenses, the system illustrated will keep more in your pocket. Just by reading this book, you will understand why and how you could easily be saving $100,000 to $200,000 over your lifetime if you are currently using credit cards, financing, or paying cash for major expenses.
