1. Plot summary of lily & sapphire
In the 1960s, young Celia Marsdon is a rich American heiress who, upon her marriage to English aristocrat Richard Marsdon, goes to live at an ancestral manor in Sussex, England. Shortly afterward, strange things begin to occur Richard begins acting out of character, and Celia starts to have strange fits and visions.
Celia's mother, Lily Taylor, has befriended a Hindu guru, Dr. Akananda, and it is he who discovers what's wrong with the young couple. The troubles of the present time can only be solved by revisiting a tragedy from the past.
The book then moves back in time to the reign of Edward VI, as lovely young Celia de Bohun and her guardian aunt take up residence with the noble Catholic family of Anthony Browne as "poor relations." Celia is a fascinating and believable character, full of contradictions and human failings. She is headstrong and impulsive; innocent but coquettish; and can easily attract male attention.
She creates a scandal when she becomes infatuated with the family chaplain, Stephen Marsdon, who in turn desires Celia but does not want to break his vow of chastity. They are forced to part, but never forget each other. Time passes; King Edward dies and his persecution of Catholics ends, only to be followed by his successor Queen Mary I's persecution of Protestants; the Browne family fortunes prosper under the Marian reign; and sympathetic characters harden into detestable ones.
When Celia and Stephen finally meet again, nothing can stop the passion between them. It ends tragically. The Tudor story and the narrative returns to the 1960s to find resolution in the present and lay to rest the tormented souls of Stephen and Celia so that Richard and his wife can live together happily without visions of their past lives coming between them.

2. History of lily & sapphire
On January 7, 2014, deputies Karla RubilarÂ es, Pedro BrowneÂ es and Joaqun Godoy IbezÂ es decided to leave their party, the National Renewal party, due to ideological differences.
Among the reasons that were given for leaving was the party's refusal to support the closing of the Penal CordilleraÂ es (a special prison for military people that were condemned for human rights violations under the Pinochet dictatorship), its lack of support for the allowance of civil unions, and its position on economic and educational policies. The same day, Rubilar, Browne, and Ibez presented a manifesto entitled "Amplitud", which outlined a new political movement. The positions detailed included the rejection of human rights violations committed during the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet and support for political reforms, including the reform of the electoral system and the vote of Chileans living abroad.
On January 20, Senator Lily PrezÂ es joined the movement, having resigned from National Renewal four days earlier. Later that year, on March 28, former-senator Carlos CanteroÂ es and regional councilor of Antofagasta Constantino ZafirpulosÂ es joined the party. Its initial intentions were to remain within the Alliance, forming a political party with Political Evolution and other center-right organizations, and presenting its own candidate for the eventual presidential primary in 2017.
However, its path changed towards the end of 2014 when Amplitude made a political-reforms agreement with Public Force (Fuerza Pblica, later Citizens), a political movement led by Andrs Velasco, and Liberal Network (Red LiberalÂ es). Lily Prez had expressed the party's intention to hold a presidential primary between herself and Velasco. On March 7, 2015, Amplitude elected its provisional board of directors; Joaquin Godoy won the presidency with 89.
8% of the vote and general secretary Peter Browne won with 80.9%. The new board officially took office on March 15, 2015.
On May 15, 2015, founding member Deputy Karla Rubilar quit Amplitude, citing political differences. The next day the General Council was held in the former National Congress building in Santiago, where a new emblem was presented and it was decided to initiate proceedings for registration as a political party. On September 28, 2015, Amplitude announced the formation of a liberal political coalition, joining with Citizens and Liberal Network to face the municipal elections of 2016.
On January 2016 the coalition was named Future Sense (Spanish: Sentido Futuro).

4. Lacey Green of lily & sapphire
Lacey Green is a village and civil parish in Wycombe district near Princes Risborough, in Buckinghamshire, England.
It is in the Chiltern Hills above the town. It was home to Heston Blumenthal, whose parents used to own amusement arcades in the area. RAF Bomber Command commandeered some agricultural land for an airfield during World War II.
The land has now reverted to agriculture, the school playing field and the village sports ground. The village has lost its Methodist chapel, shop and sub-post office but still retains a sports club, primary school, two pubs (three if you include The Pink and Lily at Parslow's Hillock), Village Hall and the windmill. The hamlet was known as Leasy Green in the early 19th century.
It is twinned with Hambye in France. Dated to 1650 by leading authority Stanley Freese, Lacey Green windmill is the oldest surviving smock mill in England and was restored from a state of almost total collapse by volunteers under the auspices of the Chiltern Society. Though it is widely believed that the mill was originally sited in nearby Chesham and moved to Lacey Green in 1821, no primary sources have been found to substantiate this and the Chiltern Society has been unable to trace the story beyond 1932 A somewhat speculative theory to perhaps explain the story's origin has been advanced by Michael Highfield, author of the Chiltern Society's guide to the mill.
He recounts a conversation with a 96-year-old lady who had lived in the area all her life and remembered being chased away from "Cheshums Mill" as a child. The Mill had been in the Cheshire family since the 1860s and was sometimes referred to locally as Cheshire's mill, applying the Buckinghamshire dialect possessive suffix 'ums', Cheshire's becomes Cheshums!

She is particularly interested in the interstices between music and religion. The study of Jewish music in modernity has provided a primary focus for research for two decades, and has provided the context for her more recent ventures into new fields of inquiry, that is music and postmodernity and music and temporality.
She has been conducting research in Israel, Germany, and the United States, and her work in these countries is ongoing. Frhauf's research in the area of music and Jewish studies has been funded by the American Musicological Society, the Leo Baeck Institute, the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, the German Academic Exchange Program (DAAD), among other organizations.

In 2019, Frhauf has been DAAD Guest Professor at the Hochschule fr Musik und Theater Mnchen, where she laid the groundwork for the establishment of the Paul Ben-Haim Center, which is devoted to the study of music before, during, and after Nazism.
6. Empress Xing of lily & sapphire
Empress Xing (1106 1139), personal name Xing Shi was a Chinese Empress of the Song Dynasty, married to Emperor Gaozong of Song. Xing was from Bianjing, and was selected to be the primary consort of Gaozong, then a Prince.
Their marriage was conducted in 1115, when she was eight years old. In 1126, Emperor Huizong abdicated in favor of his son, Emperor Qinzong, the elder brother of Gaozong. In 1127, the capital of Kaifeng was captured by the Jurchen during the JinSong Wars.
The Emperor Qinzong was deposed, and him, as well as his predecessor Emperor Huizong and most of the Imperial family and court, over 3000 people, was captured and exiled to Manchuria in what was called the Jingkang Incident. They were first taken to the Jurchen capital, many of them dying on the way. The Imperial consorts, concubines, palace women and eunuchs who were taken captured, were distributed among the Jurchen as slaves.
Consort Xing was among those captured and taken away. Nothing more is known of her except that she was coveted by her captors, that she attempted suicide to escape abuses but was unsuccessful, and that she died in captivity in 1139. Gaozong himself avoided capture because he was absent from the capital when it fell.
Gaozong then organized the resistance against further Jurchen invasion, declaring himself Emperor in late 1127 and establishing the Southern Song dynasty. Knowing his primary consort Xing was still alive in captivity, he declared her to be Empress in absentia. Emperor Gaozong kept the position of Empress vacant because he did not know whether Consort Xing was still alive or not: when she died in 1139, the Jurchen kept her death a secret, and it was not until his mother, Consort Wei, was released and allowed to join him, that he learned that she was dead.
Her remains was returned to be buried the same year. It was not until 1143 that Gaozong was persuaded by his mother and his ministers to appoint a new Empress, and he promoted Consort Wu to the position.
