A young woman is torn between love, loyalty... and the chance for escape. Ellie of Elmleigh Square by Dee Williams is a stirring saga of a young woman's search for happiness and escape from her brawling, embittered family. Perfect for fans of Cathy Sharp and Sheila Newberry. 'A compassionate tale of a woman's struggle for survival' - Woman's Realm Ellie Walsh lives in a battlefield. Her out-of-work father, selfish sisters and violent, bitter mother, Ruby, are constantly fighting - and Ellie is always caught in the crossfire. So when a charming customer, Leonard Kent, comes into the local tearoom where she is a waitress, she is flattered by his attention. And when he reveals he plays the piano in a West End club by night, she is thrilled by the glamorous life she imagines him leading - so far removed from the grind of poverty-stricken Rotherhithe. But though she is increasingly attracted to Leonard, Ellie has secretly never forgotten Terry Andrews, who lives on the other side of Elmleigh Square to her. But Terry has made it clear he is not interested in her and, in any case, Ruby Walsh hates Terry's mother and would never permit a relationship between Terry and her daughter. Events, though, soon take an extraordinary turn, destroying the flimsy foundations on which Ellie has built her world. It is up to her, and her alone, to decide on the direction of her future... What readers are saying about Ellie of Elmleigh Square: 'This book had me hooked from page one... Perfect to curl up with and let yourself be transported back in time to a different age. Truly wonderful' 'Another easy, interesting read [with a] great mix of characters' 'I loved this book, Ellie became almost my friend whilst reading it. I was captivated from beginning to end'

This book is designed to help people who seek their first federal government job as well as federal employees who want to advance in the system. The process of getting a government job often involves preparing complex applications or specialized resumes which include the "resumix." One complication of the federal hiring process is that the resume used for federal employment is not the same as the resume used to obtain civilian employment. This book shows examples of effective federal resumes and "resumix" that have worked for real people. The book doesn't simply "tell how" to write the resumix or federal resume; it actually "shows how" to write effective federal resumes in sample after sample related to multiple fields. This book will do a great deal to make the federal hiring process understandable as it illuminates one of the most complex features of getting a government job: writing the federal resume or resumix. In addition to the federal resume, application for federal employment can be made by preparing the Optional Form 612 (OF 612). This book also contains examples of the 612 application.
