Fantasy Historical

What fortune awaited sweet, timid Percy Parker at Athens Academy? Hidden in the dark heart of Victorian London, the Romanesque school was dreadfully imposing, a veritable fortress, and little could Percy guess what lay inside. She had never met its powerful and mysterious Professor Alexi Rychman, knew nothing of the growing shadows, of the Ripper and other supernatural terrors against which his coterie stood guard. She saw simply that she was different, haunted, with her snow white hair, pearlescent skin and uncanny gift. This arched stone doorway was a portal to a new life, to an education far from what could be had at a convent—and it was an invitation to an intimate yet dangerous dance at the threshold of life and death...

I would give it to my coworker Natasha - who always makes me laugh and it is as much as an avid reader as I am

because she's always looking for
something to read and I think
she might enjoy these books.

I have heard a lot about this book. I would love to give this to a friend I met a few years ago. We became close just from our interest in reading and she has had it rough this past year.
Gail Hurt 11:49am December 4, 2009)

You are a new name for me... I will have to look for your books...
My sister would be my choice for this gift!

My daughter will enjoy reading this book. After the holidays when things wind down she will be missing her hubby who passed away in Oct 09. She is raising his daughter but still misses him.

I would like to give this gift to my daughter's sister-in-law who's husband was tragically killed in an industrial accident just a month ago. A young mother with 2 young children who will only have pictures to remember him by.
Lisa Glidewell 8:48pm December 4, 2009)

I would love to give this to my sister, she loves to read and can't afford to buy new books.
