Lydia Netzer könyvei a rukkolán


Lydia Netzer - Ragyogj, ​édesem!
Amikor ​Maxon megismerte Sunnyt, 7 éves, 4 hónapos és 18 napos volt. A Föld 2693 alkalommal fordult meg a tengelye körül addigra. Maxon más volt. Sunny is más volt. Együtt mások lehettek. Most, 20 évvel később házasok, és Sunny csak arra vágyik, hogy ,,normális" legyen. Háziasszony és anya, míg férje, a zseniális mérnök épp NASA kiküldetésen van a Holdon, új robotkolónia programozásán munkálkodva. Kívülállók voltak, akik halálosan egymásba szerettek. Különleges, eltéphetetlen szálak kötik őket egymáshoz. Van egy autista kisfiuk, és Sunny újra gyermeket vár. Édesanyja kórházban haldoklik. Az űrben pedig szörnyű tragédia történik. Sötét titkok, rég elfeledett gyilkosságok, és egy libbenő szőke paróka, mely hirtelen mindenre fényt derít. És minden megváltozik.

Lydia Netzer - How ​to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky
Lydia ​Netzer, the award-winning author of Shine Shine Shine, weaves a mind-bending, heart-shattering love story that asks, "Can true love exist if it's been planned from birth?" Like a jewel shimmering in a Midwest skyline, the Toledo Institute of Astronomy is the nation's premier center of astronomical discovery and a beacon of scientific learning for astronomers far and wide. Here, dreamy cosmologist George Dermont mines the stars to prove the existence of God. Here, Irene Sparks, an unsentimental scientist, creates black holes in captivity. George and Irene are on a collision course with love, destiny and fate. They have everything in common: both are ambitious, both passionate about science, both lonely and yearning for connection. The air seems to hum when they're together. But George and Irene's attraction was not written in the stars. In fact their mothers, friends since childhood, raised them separately to become each other's soulmates. When that long-secret plan triggers unintended consequences, the two astronomers must discover the truth about their destinies, and unravel the mystery of what Toledo holds for them―together or, perhaps, apart. Lydia Netzer combines a gift for character and big-hearted storytelling, with a sure hand for science and a vision of a city transformed by its unique celestial position, exploring the conflicts of fate and determinism, and asking how much of life is under our control and what is pre-ordained in the heavens in her novel How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky.

Lydia Netzer - Shine ​Shine Shine
When ​Maxon met Sunny, he was seven years, four months, and eighteen-days old. Or, he was 2693 rotations of the earth old. Maxon was different. Sunny was different. They were different together. Now, twenty years later, they are married, and Sunny wants, more than anything, to be “normal.” She’s got the housewife thing down perfectly, but Maxon, a genius engineer, is on a NASA mission to the moon, programming robots for a new colony. Once they were two outcasts who found unlikely love in each other: a wondrous, strange relationship formed from urgent desire for connection. But now they’re parents to an autistic son. And Sunny is pregnant again. And her mother is dying in the hospital. Their marriage is on the brink of imploding, and they’re at each other’s throats with blame and fear. What exactly has gone wrong? Sunny wishes Maxon would turn the rocket around and come straight-the-hell home. When an accident in space puts the mission in peril, everything Sunny and Maxon have built hangs in the balance. Dark secrets, long-forgotten murders, and a blond wig all come tumbling to the light. And nothing will ever be the same.… A debut of singular power and intelligence, Shine Shine Shine is a unique love story, an adventure between worlds, and a stunning novel of love, death, and what it means to be human.
