It has been a difficult year for Lewiston attorney Billy Cole. Personal family loss and a battle with alcohol have brought him to the edge of ruin. All seems hopeless.And then events take over on Lisbon Street, the main drag in a decaying downtown in central Maine, where Billy's law office and the local courthouse are located. A client is charged with murder. A beautiful woman from London comes into his life. And he takes on a custody case involving an Argentine boy that, in the end, offers hope for recovery and redemption.Lisbon Street is one lawyer's story about real life in the poverty-ridden neighborhoods of an old New England mill town. It is a compelling legal drama of life during a year when everything on Lisbon Street -- and in the world -- has changed forever.

The Global City: On the Streets of Renaissance Lisbon
The Global City: On the Streets of Renaissance
Awarded an Honorable Mention by The Eleanor Tufts Award. The Award Committee called the book a "transformative scholarly contribution."Awarded the 2016 "Admiral Teixeira da Mota" Prize from the Academia de Marinha (Navel Academy), LisbonRecently identified b the editors as the Rua Nova dos Mercadores, the principal commercial and financial street in Renaissance Lisbon, two sixteenth-century paintings, acquired by Dante Gabriel Rossetti in 1866, form the starting point for this portrait of a global city in the early modern period. Focusing on unpublished objects, and incorporating newly discovered documents and inventories that allow novel interpretations of the Rua Nova and the goods for sale on it, these essays offer a compelling and original study of a metropolis whose reach once spanned four continents. The Rua Nova views painted by an anonymous Flemish artist portray an everyday scene on a recognizable street, with a diverse global population. This thoroughfare was the meeting point of all kinds of people, from rich to poor, slave to knight, indigenous Portuguese to Jews and diasporic black Africans.The volume highlights the unique status of Lisbon as an entrepôt for curiosities, luxury goods and wild animals. As the Portuguese trading empire of the fifteenth and sixteenth c...

The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon
The Last Kabbalist of
The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon, an international bestseller, is an extraordinary novel that transports listeners into the universe of Jewish Kabbalah during the Lisbon massacre of April 1506. Just a few years earlier, Jews living in Portugal were dragged to the baptismal font and forced to convert to Christianity. Many of these New Christians persevered in their Jewish prayers and rituals in secret and at great risk; the hidden, arcane practices of the kabbalists, a mystical sect of Jews, continued as well. One such secret Jew was Berekiah Zarco, an intelligent young manuscript illuminator. Inflamed by love and revenge, he searches, in the crucible of the raging pogrom, for the killer of his beloved uncle Abraham, a renowned kabbalist and manuscript illuminator, discovered murdered in a hidden synagogue along with a young girl in dishabille. Risking his life in streets seething with mayhem, Berekiah tracks down answers among Christians, New Christians, Jews, and the fellow kabbalists of his uncle, whose secret language and codes by turns light and obscure the way to the truth he seeks. A marvelous story, a challenging mystery, and a telling tale of the evils of intolerance, The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon both compels and entertains.
