At the Edge of the Precipice
It has been said that if Henry Clay had been alive in 1860. there would have been no Civil War. Based on his performance in 1850. it may well be true. In that year. the United States faced one of the most dangerous crises in its history. having just acquired a huge parcel of land from the war with Mexico. Northern and Southern politicians fought over whether slavery should be legal on the new American soil. After a Northern congressman introduced a proviso to forbid slavery in any territory acquired from Mexico. Southerners threatened to secede from the Union. Only Henry Clay. America’s great compromiser. could keep the Union together. saving it from dissolution for ten crucial years. In this masterful contribution to American history. Remini explores Henry Clay’s final and most important act of bipartisanship.

„Zatoka trujących jabłuszek” – istnieje naprawdę. w przeciwieństwie do Klubu Mało Używanych Dziewic. który ożył tylko na kartach książek Moniki Szwai.
Jego „matki założycielki” zdobyły sobie wszakże taką sympatię czytelników. jakby były najprawdziwsze w świecie. Czy to znaczy. że takie „dziewice” drzemią w wielu z nas? Że – podobnie jak one – wiemy. co w życiu jest najważniejsze i że niekoniecznie jest to zrobienie kariery za wszelką cenę?
Że umiemy. a przynajmniej próbujemy dostrzegać piękno w świecie – takim. jaki jest? Że ciągnie nas do drugiego człowieka? Że staramy się po prostu być szczęśliwymi ludźmi
Pozostałe tomy przygód bohaterek to: „Klub Mało Używanych Dziewic”. „Dziewice do boju”.
