The English Governess at the Siamese Court

The English Governess at the Siamese Court by Anna Harriette Leonowens

The English Governess at the Siamese Court by Anna Harriette Leonowens

1862 Anna Leonowens accepted an offer made by the Siamese consul in Singapore, Tan Kim Ching, to teach the wives and children of Mongkut, king of Siam. The king wished to give his 39 wives and concubines and 82 children a modern Western education on scientific secular lines, which earlier missionaries’ wives had not provided. Leonowens sent her daughter Avis to school in England, and took her son Louis with her to Bangkok. She succeeded Dan Beach Bradley, an American missionary, as teacher to the Siamese court.

Leonowens served at court until 1867, a period of nearly six years, first as a teacher and later as language secretary for the king. Although her position carried great respect and even a degree of political influence, she did not find the terms and conditions of her employment to her satisfaction, and came to be regarded by the king himself as a rather difficult woman.

In 1868 Leonowens was on leave for her health in England and had been negotiating a return to the court on better terms when Mongkut fell ill and died. The king mentioned Leonowens and her son in his will, though they did not receive the legacy. The new monarch, fifteen-year-old Chulalongkorn, who succeeded his father, wrote Leonowens a warm letter of thanks for her services.

By 1869 Leonowens was in New York, and began contributing travel articles to a Boston journal, Atlantic Monthly, including ‘The Favorite of the Harem’, reviewed by the New York Times as ‘an Eastern love story, having apparently a strong basis of truth’.She expanded her articles into two volumes of memoirs, beginning with The English Governess at the Siamese Court (1870), which earned her immediate fame but also brought charges of sensationalism. In her writing she casts a critical eye over court life; the account is not always a flattering one, and has become the subject of controversy in Thailand; she has also been accused of exaggerating her influence with the king.”

E-books & Audiobooks to Improve your Confidence

All You Can Books: Your E-book hub

Confidence can be interpreted as an inspiration from a self-help book, or even your favorite character from a fictional book. It is time to get inspired and boost your confidence through these e-books and audiobook:

Laugh and Live by Douglas Fairbanks

Laugh and Live | Douglas Fairbanks

This book is available in e-book and audiobook format.

Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. was an American actor, screenwriter, director and producer. He was best known for his swashbuckling roles in silent films such as The Thief of Baghdad, Robin Hood, and The Mark of Zorro. His book, Laugh and Live, is a book about positive virtues and advice for leading a good, healthy, and successful life. An advisory about this book is in order. It was written at a time when “men went to work, women kept house, and supported their man”. Some of the writing and references are old-fashioned by today’s standards. Several ideas may be at odds with plans for successful lives today, especially for female listeners. Listeners should still find many valuable common-sense suggestions for leading a wholesome life

Thinking As A Science by Henry Hazlitt

Thinking As A Science | Henry Hazlitt

This book is available in e-book and audiobook format.

Written in a conversational style that will appeal to the younger person as well as seasoned professional, “Thinking as a Science” is timeless classic. Through eleven chapters, the last being a descriptive, annotated bibliography, Henry Hazlitt systematically takes the step-by-step on the process of introducing logic and context into the thinking process. The rather long chapter on “Reading and Thinking” clarifies several notions on where one needs to understand where mere knowledge acquisition ends and using reading the stimulate thinking begins. For an individual who was largely self taught, Hazlitt’s contribution to the process of thinking is a must-read

The Wisdom of Father Brown by G. K. Chesterton

The Wisdom of Father Brown | G. K. Chesterton

This book is available in e-book and audiobook format.

This is the second of five books of short stories about G. K. Chesterton’s fictional detective. Father Brown is a short, nondescript Catholic Priest with shapeless clothes and a large umbrella who has an uncanny insight into human evil. His methods, unlike those of his near-contemporary Sherlock Holmes, although based on observation of details often unnoticed by others, tended to be intuitive rather than deductive. Although clearly devout, he always emphasizes rationality: despite his religiousness and his belief in God and miracles, he manages to see the perfectly ordinary, natural explanation of the problem. He is a devout, educated and “civilized” clergyman, who is totally familiar with contemporary and secular thought and behavior. His character was thought to be based on Father John O’Connor, a parish priest in Bradford, Yorkshire.

Making Your Own World by Warren Hilton

Making Your Own World | Warren Hilton

This book is available in e-book format.

I. All human achievement comes about through bodily activity.

II. All bodily activity is caused, controlled and directed by the mind.

To these two fundamental propositions we now append a third, which needs no proof, but follows as a natural and logical conclusion from the other two:

III. The Mind is the instrument you must employ for the accomplishment of any purpose.
Three Postulates for this Course

With these three fundamental propositions as postulates, it will be the end and aim of this Course of Reading to develop plain, simple and specific methods and directions for the most efficient use of the mind in the attainment of practical ends.

It Can Be Done

It Can Be Done |

This book is available in e-book and audiobook format.

This book contains many poems of inspiration, joy and hope. Just the thing to encourage our spirits and strengthen our backbone when troubles seem too much. The purpose of this volume is to bring men courage and resolution, to cheer them, to fire them with new confidence when they grow dispirited, to strengthen their faith that THINGS CAN BE DONE. It is better for this purpose than the entire works of any one poet, for it takes the cream of many and has greater diversity than any one writer can show. Besides the poems themselves, the volume contains helps to their understanding and enjoyment. The pieces are introduced by short comments; these serve the same purpose as the strain played by the pianist before the singer begins to sing; they create a mood, give a point of view, throw light on the meaning of what follows.

You can read this E-book here.

Christina Witten didn’t want to be an escort! She wanted to be an administrative assistant, not a make-believe trophy on a man’s arm. If she could only make a bit of money, she could finish her course at the college and have the career of her dreams. Fate, however, threw her nothing but curveballs. The men she dated as an escort were supposed to be boring and she was certainly not tempted to fall in love with one of them. It had been a breeze until Mark Lewis entered the scene.

Dizzying Depths by Lance Manion

Dizzying Depths | Lance Manion

You can read this E-book here.

They say that good writing comes as a result of introspection. Events unfold in such a way that you are required to unflinchingly stand in front of a mirror, look yourself square in the eye and take stock of who you are and where you’re going. When those moments happen a funhouse mirror will do nicely. Look at how big my head is.

The Viking by Marti Talbott

Yet, the battle was not at all what he expected, and he soon found himself alone and stranded in Scotland. Thirteen-year-old Kannak’s problem was just as grave. Her father deserted them and the only way to survive, she decided, was to take a husband over her mother‘s objections. Suddenly she was helping a hated Viking escape. Could Kannak successfully hide a Viking in the middle of a Scottish Clan? And why was someone plotting to kill the clan’s beloved laird?

The Monk: A Romance | M. G. Lewis

This book is available in E-books and Audiobook format.

Matthew Gregory Lewis’s The Monk: A Romance is a story of frustrated and unrequited desire between mentor and pupil mixed with elements of the supernatural. It includes several subplots: rape, torture, incest and demonic plots. It is the old story of the forces of good versus the forces of evil, except that in this one evil comes out ahead.

A film adaption, The Monk, was made by French-German director Dominik Moll in 2011. It was shot in Madrid and stars Vincent Cassel, Déborah François, Geraldine Chaplin, and Sergi López.

This novel shares a number of traits with Ann Radcliffe gothic novels, The Italian and The Mysteries of Udolpho.

Recommended for fans of Dean Koontz and Stephen King.

Tom Jones is a foundling discovered on the property of a very kind, wealthy landowner, Squire Allworthy. Tom grows into a vigorous and lusty, yet honest and kind-hearted, youth. He develops affection for his neighbor’s daughter, Sophia Western. However, Tom’s status as a bastard causes Sophia’s father and Allworthy to oppose their love. The book sizzles with prostitution and plenty of sexual promiscuity.

This Is the End by Stella Benson

This Is the End | Stella Benson

This book is available in E-books and Audiobook format.

It is the story of a Family halfheartedly searching for a missing relation who does not want to be found, while just off-stage, World War I is raging on the continent. It is a story about ordinary people trying to live ordinary lives in extraordinary times. The things they do are less important than the ways in which they do them: often comic, occasionally tragic, but always touching and true to life. It reminds us that Poetry and Romance can be found anywhere, hidden beneath the surface of the most commonplace things.

Eyes Like the Sea by Mór Jókai

Eyes Like the Sea | Mór Jókai

This book is available in E-books and Audiobook format.

He was a painter, a poet, a novelist. He lived during the Hungarian revolution and his love of freedom meant his life was often in peril. She was his first love, this girl with the eyes like the sea. She was at heart noble, good and loving. What an excellent lady might have been made out of this woman, if she had only met with a husband who, in the most ordinary acceptance of the word, had been a good fellow, as is really the case with about nine men out of every ten. But she always managed to draw the unlucky tenth out of the urn of destiny. And so she spurned his true love in favor of a high-flying dandy. He went on to pursue a life of politics and she to follow her capricious heart. But yet, throughout her life, she kept returning to him, and to the end, of all men, she loved him perhaps best of all.

The reason I loved history as a subject in school was that it so full of drama at its core. They are stories but not a work of fiction. History helped me know where did we come from, the struggles, and the knowledge to not repeat them again. That is what makes history so beautiful. Read and listen to these stories that have created the world as is.
