LOVE IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD. For Stephen, love is the most frustrating word in the English language because his love for someone very special must remain hidden; revealing it could disrupt the summer music conservatory where he's a guest. For Andrew, love is a cruel word because he sees the girl he loves choosing to love another, and he can do nothing about it—except resist. For Karen, love is a pleasant experience because she discovers someone who could become more than just a boyfriend...if everything works out. For Judith, love is a long-awaited reward when her boyfriend finally reaches the point where he can admit he loves her...as she loves him. For Doug, love is a shy discovery that opens a new world. Girls haven't chased him, despite his good looks, and realizing he enjoys the company of one particular girl makes the Conservatory a special experience. For Arianne, love is a beautiful and unexpected surprise. She encounters her first boyfriend and suddenly finds herself caring head-over-heels for someone truly special. Jason finds love's gentle pain because, for the first time since he met her, the Conservatory separates him from the girl he's grown to love. And, for someone, love is patient, love is kind, love is never envious or boastful, and love becomes a desperate hope because love may be the only thing that can halt cancer's advance... Join these young people and their cast of friends and family as they experience a summer of music and learn the many aspects of love in Arianne's Waltz. Arianne's Waltz is the third book in the Musica Con Fuoco Series. Mr. Davis has written and published other books through AuthorHOUSE.

This is the first book devoted to churches in Ireland dating from the arrival of Christianity in the fifth century to the early stages of the Romanesque around 1100, including those built to house treasures of the golden age of Irish art, such as the Book of Kells and the Ardagh chalice. � Carrag�in's comprehensive survey of the surviving examples forms the basis for a far-reaching analysis of why these buildings looked as they did, and what they meant in the context of early Irish society. � Carrag�in also identifies a clear political and ideological context for the first Romanesque churches in Ireland and shows that, to a considerable extent, the Irish Romanesque represents the perpetuation of a long-established architectural tradition.
