Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: ‘Beautifully told' John Le Carre ‘More than just history’ Michael Palin ‘Truly exceptional’ Jon Snow ‘Absolutely remarkable’ Edmund de Waal ‘Beautifully written’ Stephen D. Smith In this remarkably moving memoir, Ariana Neumann dives into the secrets of her father’s past: years spent hiding in plain sight in wartorn Berlin, the annihilation of dozens of family members in the Holocaust, and the courageous choice to build anew. ‘The darkest shadow is beneath the candle.’ As a child in Venezuela, Ariana Neumann is fascinated by the enigma of her father, who appears to be the epitome of success and strength, but who wakes at night screaming in a language she doesn’t recognise. Then, one day, she finds an old identity document bearing his picture – but someone else’s name. From a box of papers her father leaves for her when he dies, Ariana meticulously uncovers the extraordinary truth of his escape from Nazi-occupied Prague. She follows him across Europe and reveals his astonishing choice to assume a fake identity and live out the war undercover, spying for the Allies in Berlin – deep in the ‘darkest shadow’. Having known nothing of her father’s past, not even that he was Jewish, Ariana’s detective work also leads to the shocking discovery that a total of twenty-five members of the Neumann family were murdered by the Nazis. Spanning nearly ninety years and crossing oceans, When Time Stopped is a powerful and beautifully wrought memoir in which Ariana comes to know the family that has been lost – and, ultimately, her own beloved father.

But, for some eagles hovering over a particular patch of the forest that helped in spotting and retrieving him, the Vet’s verdict that had triggered Bingo’s death-wish may well have come true! But destiny had its plan; thankfully!

I never felt that I had any grandparents on my father’s side, and questions on the topic were answered curtly with only the most basic of details. #2 I had to solve the mystery of what had happened if I was ever going to understand my father. My inquiries led me to other boxes, from different sources, and they all held clues but also prompted more questions. #3 I have spent years researching my father’s life before he arrived in Venezuela. When I started inquiring, locating people, and assembling a family tree, another box that Věra had kept untouched in Switzerland emerged. #4 I was interested in the family letters because I wanted to understand my father better. I was afraid to read them, but my aunt, who had known my father in Venezuela, helped me decipher them.

Tristan hates time. So he makes it stop. Or so he thinks... When the world comes to a confused standstill, Tristan thinks it's his fault. In actual fact, time has stopped because the Time Keeper, who has been making time for centuries, has quit, fed up with people's lack of appreciation. Then, unfortunately, the Time Keeper gets kidnapped by the nefarious Time Bandits. Tristan, along with his sister Bella, sets out on a long and complicated journey to find him, hoping to get time back.
