Alan Jolis' lyrical memoir, "Speak Sunlight," is a window into the world of these attachments, where servants are not only extensions of the family but also mentors and co-conspirators. In Jolis' case, the location is not Beverly Hills but upper-crust Paris and the staff is not Mexican or Central American but Spanish. Young Alfonso-his childhood name-is the son of Americans living in Paris in the 1960s. He is a boy of the elegant quartiers.

I saw the movie first this time, and really liked it, so I had to read the book. What I wouldn't give to have Cecilia Ahern's talent (and, yes, money)! She is such a great writer and every novel of h. .rs that I have read has real heart. This one has an interesting format; it's an epistolary novel.

People who have the right to sit in the House of Lords are called Peers or Peeresses. Peers are not elected: they either inherit or merit their title or it depends on their job. They can be divided into: Lords Temporal: people with inherited titles and people with titles given for their lifetime who are called Life Peers; Lords Spiritual: the two Archbishops and the 24 most senior bishops of the Church of England; Law Lords: the most important senior judges. In fact the House of Lords is also the highest court of law in the country. There are more than 1,000 Peers and Peeresses but only about.

This book is a true gem.

Mercedes is a gypsy turned nanny, who, with a host of other staff, raise the hero from childhood to adolescence in a wonderful elegant home in Paris. With both opera-singing mother and important father chronically absent, one might think this a tragic tale, but no, Mercedes is beautiful and fiery and not very far out of adolescence herself and the love and quirky perspectives of the people surrounding the young hero make his life completely magic. A great pick-me-up if you are having a bad day or week or month, this is a must buy.

Author Alan Jolis helped Dr.Muhammad Yunus, the founder of the Grameen Bank, write his autobiography.

Sadly, Jolis died in 2000 from brain cancer at age 46. MERCEDES AND THE HOUSE OF RAINBOWS: A NOVEL
