Once upon a time there lived in a small house built underneath the ground two curious little folk, with their father, their mother, their uncle and Jane Fuzzy-Wuzzy. Jane Fuzzy-Wuzzy was the nurse, hired girl and cook, all in one, and the reason she had such a funny name was because she was a funny cook. She had long hair, a sharp nose, a very long tail and the brightest eyes you ever saw. She could stay under water a long time, and was a fine swimmer. In fact, Jane Fuzzy-Wuzzy was a big muskrat, and the family she worked for was almost as strange as she was. (excerpt from text)

Librivox: Elusive Isabel by Futrelle, JacquesJoin Now to Follow

Elusive Isabel is a novel by Jacques Futrelle (April 9, 1875 - April 15, 1912) first published in 1909. Set in Washington, D.C., it is a spy novel about an international conspiracy of the "Latin" countries against the English-speaking world with the aim to take over world control. Plot summary: The eponymous heroine, Isabel Thorne, is a young woman, half British, half Italian, who works for the Italian secret service and who has been commissioned to bring about the signing of the secret contract right in the capital of the enemy by representatives of all countries involved, both European and American. Her brother, an inventor, has devised a secret weapon by which missiles can be fired from submarines which will, it is hoped, secure military dominion over the rest of the world. Members of the U.S. Secret Service, who have been alerted, are assigned to prevent the signing of this "Latin compact" and bring to justice those involved who have no diplomatic immunity. One young representative by the name of Grimm, however, although absolutely loyal to his government, falls in love with the beautiful foreign agent. In the end Isabel Thorne, who reciprocates her admirer's love, becomes estranged from her employer, the Italian government, because she does not want Grimm, who has been captured by the conspirators and knows all their secrets, to be murdered. Stripped of all her power and possessions, she unites with him at the end of the novel, no longer elusive. A trivial novel in its time, Elusive Isabel has been completely forgotten but can now be easily accessed via the Project Gutenberg web site. (Summary from wikipedia)

Nach dem Tod seines Vaters kehrt Herr Bulemann nach in Übersee verbrachten Jahren in seine Heimatstadt zurück und zieht in das Haus seines Vaters. Seine Frau und seine Kinder hat er auf der Überfahrt an Sklavenhändler verkauft – so erzählt man sich. Stattdessen hat sich Herr Buhlemann zwei große Katzen mitgebracht. In seinem Vaterhaus findet er allerlei Pfandgüter – sein Vater war Pfandleiher – vor, die er widerrechtlich verkauft. In den folgenden Jahren suchen ihn Pfandgläubiger auf, welche ihre Pfandgüter auslösen wollen und die er bestechen muss, damit sie sein widerrechtliches Handeln nicht ausplaudern. Er wird immer unleidlicher und menschenscheuer, bis sein einziger Kontakt zur Außenwelt seine Haushälterin ist, die ihn verachtet. Schließlich weist er schroff seine Halbschwester zurück, als sie ihn wegen ihres kränklichen Sohnes um Hilfe anfleht und verschuldet letztlich den Tod seines Neffen. Seine Schwester verflucht ihn, woraufhin sich die beiden Katzen nach und nach schauerlich verwandeln und ihn für immer in seinem Haus festhalten, aus dem die Haushälterin inzwischen geflohen ist.

Librivox: War and Peace, Book 04: 1806 by Tolstoy, LeoJoin Now to Follow

War and Peace (Russian: Война и мир, Voyna i mir; in original orthography: Война и миръ, Voyna i mir") is an epic novel by Leo Tolstoy, first published from 1865 to 1869 in Russki Vestnik, which tells the story of Russian society during the Napoleonic Era. It is usually described as one of Tolstoy's two major masterpieces (the other being Anna Karenina) as well as one of the world's greatest novels. War and Peace offered a new kind of fiction, with a great many characters caught up in a plot that covered nothing less than the grand subjects indicated by the title, combined with the equally large topics of youth, age and marriage. While today it is considered a novel, it broke so many novelistic conventions of its day that many critics of Tolstoy's time did not consider it as such. Tolstoy himself considered Anna Karenina (1878) to be his first attempt at a novel in the European sense. (Summary by Wikipedia)
