1) Elizabeth Ferrars - Murder among friends
In wartime London, wardens are checking for lights in the blacked-out streets, but inside Cecily Lightwood's flat, a party is in progress. Many people from the literary and artistic world are invited but althougth Cecily is radiant, the party is not going well as Aubrey Ritter from the upstairs flat, who is eagerly awaited by everyone, fails to show. The reason for this becomes clear when Aubrey's body is discovered and the search for a murderer begins.
2) Paula Fox - The slave dancer
One day, thirteen-year-old jessie Bollier is earning pennies playing his fife on the docks of New Orleans; the next, he is kidnapped and thrown aboard a slave ship, where his job is to provide music while shackled slaves "dance" to keep their muscles strong and their bodies profitable. As the endless voyage continues, Jessie grows increasingly sickened by the greed, brutality, and inhumanity of the slave trade, but nothing prepares him for the ultimate horror he will witness before his nightmare ends - a horror that will change his life forever.
3) Leslie Marmon Silko - Ceremony
Tayo, a young Native American, has been a prisoner of the Japanese during World War II, and the horrors of captivity have almost eroded his will to survive. His return to the Laguna Pueblo reservation only increases his feeling of estrangement and alienation. While other returning soldiers find easy refuge in alcohol and senseless violence, Tayo searches for another kind of comfort and resolution.
