“Atheist, homosexual, eccentric, marathon-running English mathematician, A. M. Turing was in large part responsible not only for the concept of computers, incisive theorems about their powers, and a clear vision of the possibility of computer minds, but also for the cracking of German ciphers during the Second World War.”

Being a spy in the time of Napoleon‘s war, sure was a dangerous profession.

What Is Visible: A Novel | Kimberly Elkins
post image

#LoversinaDangerousTime and place in this fascinating #historicalfiction based on a real deaf-blind woman who supposedly taught Anne Sullivan the manual alphabet which she taught to Helen Keller (childhood home pic from recent trip.) Elkins says the love affair is fictional, but plausible. Connections to Julua Ward Howe & Charles Dickens are true. Audio was gripping! #TimbitTunes @TheKidUpstairs @Cinfhen

Cinfhen Thanks for sharing!! Sounds fascinating 5mo

Samuel Baker, an upper class Victorian explorer, was on his way to Constantinople in 1858 when he spotted an attractive Hungarian girl at a slave auction. He bought her. 😳

Florence became his mistress, companion, fellow-explorer and eventually (and secretly) his wife. When Samuel was knighted for his work, the former slave girl became Lady Baker ... and Queen Victoria was NOT amused.


TrishB How fab ❤️ 5mo
emilyhaldi Ugh you have the BEST covers!! 5mo
Chrissyreadit I need to learn more history. I did not know Hungary had slaves too. 5mo

LeahBergen @Chrissyreadit It was in a Turkish bazaar in what is now known as Bulgaria. The Ottoman Empire was still pretty big in those days. My description was restricted by the Litsy word count. 😆😆 5mo

The video for the Barenaked Ladies' cover of #LoversinaDangerousTime is a love letter to Scarborough. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/yGsDlb2ziAk

Chariandy's Brother (current #CanadaReads selection) is very much a Scarborough story with a strong sense of place. Now, to find time to read it...

#TimbitTunes @Cinfhen

Cinfhen I really enjoyed that video 😍thanks for posting the link 5mo
JacqMac Thanks for the link. I‘m reading this one now. 5mo

Day 14 - #loversinadangeroustime #barenakedladies #timbittunes
Don't the hours grow shorter as the days go by
We never get to stop and open our eyes
One minute you're waiting for the sky to fall
The next you're dazzled by the beauty of it all
Lovers in a dangerous time
Lovers in a dangerous time
These fragile bodies of touch and taste
This fragrant skin, this hair like lace
Spirits open to the thrust of grace
Never a breath you can afford to waste

TheKidUpstairs I love this song so much, especially the Barenaked Ladies version. I can hear the harmonies just reading the lyrics. Thanks for sharing a bit of each song with everyone! 5mo
