There at Keswick, his family, originally from Augsburg, runs a mining operation that pays a royalty to Queen Elizabeth in gold. It's ruled by the widow Radagunda Hochstetter, his mother. Sir Robert's other problem? His dour, difficult, and now treasonous henchman, Sergeant Henry Dodd, has disappeared somewhere on the snowy moors. Why can't anyone find Dodd's body? Before going after Hochstetter, Carey must escort Dodd's widow back to her home at Gilsland. It's a complex operation involving a cart, Widow Ridley and Skinabake Armstrong. That's the man who sold Janet Dodd to Wee Colin, the Elliot headman, on her way to Edinburgh before Dodd disappeared."--Inside dust jacket.

Pag mabilis na umalis baka di naman talaga dumating : at iba pang kwento

December 13, 2018
Tolentino, Roland B., author.
© 2017
xix, 155 pages ; 23 cm
Short stories.
Ang magnanakaw -- Sayaw ni Marinela -- Ina ng aktibista -- Kapag tinotortyur -- Ang presidente sa palasyo -- Tapat sa uri -- Kwento ng kapital -- Latifundia at Urian -- Pagmamahal -- Pag mabilis na umalis baka di naman talaga dumating -- Hinggil sa May-akda.
"Sa ikatlong koleksyon ng maikling kwento ni Rolando B. Tolentino, ang mga iglap ay hitik sa kwento ng paglisan, pagdating, di pagbalik, pag-aantay, paglagi--pero parating puno ng pagtatagpo. Ang eksena ng tagpuan ay enkapsuladong sandali at sityo ng mga realidad, fantasya, angas, labis at kulang sa historikal, panlipunan, sarili, kapwa, kabalintunaan, paradox, pagnanasa, at pagdanas. Pag-ibig ang puno't dulo gayong malawak at malalim ang pagdanas sa aspirasyonal na spero ng buhay na ito. Umiibig tayo kanino, ng ano, saan, kailan, bakit, paano, at para kanino--na bawat isa ay may kanya-kanyang pagmumundo at minumundo ng pag-ibig. Umiibig nga ba tayo talaga, o umiibig lang tayo sa idea na umiibig tayo, umiibig pa tayo, iibig at iibigin tayo? Ang Pag Mabilis na Umalis Baka Di Naman Talaga Dumating, at Iba Pang Kwento ay isang musa ng pagdanas at mundo ng mga iglap na hitik at said sa pag-ibig, pagkatao, at pakikipagkapwa-tao. Lipad-sadsad para sa posibilidad at pagkakataong makaalagwa at pag-asang magtagumpay." -- cover,
