The Golden Oldies Guesthouse

Author: Dee Macdonald Narrator: Jilly Bond Release Date: June 2022

'I ended up reading until the wee small hours of the morning... Certainly took me on an emotional rollercoaster ride with all the ups and downs, the happiness and sadness, the laughs and the sobs.' Tess and Simon Sparrow may have a few more grey hairs than they used to, but that doesn't stop them from being swept up in a whirlwind romance and starting over. Swapping their city lives for an escape to the Cornish countryside, they fall in love with a crumbling hotel and impulsively buy it to renovate as their forever home. But soon the newlyweds have had their first fight (and their second and third...) and building costs are spiralling out of control. Their families think they're mad and Tess is starting to agree - she just wants to escape back to civilisation. Doing up the glorious, wisteria-clad property was meant to be a delightful retirement project. But the electrics are faulty, there's no central heating, and the kitchen ceiling's fallen in: the dream has become reality and things only get more chaotic when the first guests arrive... Mysterious Celia, hapless romantic Dominic and tarnished, lovelorn actress Titania are all looking for a fresh start. Everyone in this eclectic group has their own reasons for being in Cornwall, but the summer is full of secrets and surprises. As plans go awry and truths are revealed, Tess and Simon realise that they've taken on a bigger challenge than they intended to: can their happily-ever-after survive the chaos or will this end up being the biggest mistake of their lives? From the bestselling author of The Runaway Wife and The Silver Ladies of Penny Lane, this is a completely uplifting page-turner about embracing new friendships, finding love and making each day count. Perfect for fans of The Kicking the Bucket List and The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. Why readers are loving The Golden Oldies Guesthouse: 'Five golden stars for Dee McDonald's latest... charming... The Golden Oldies Guesthouse features humour with a deft touch, charm, fun, love and romance.' Jena Books 'Utterly charming!... It's gentle, humorous, heart-warming and packed full of characters that you will remember long after the book is finished. I adored every word and my only complaint is that the story ended!' NetGalley Reviewer 'A hilarious romp... larger than life characters...Told as only Dee Macdonald can tell these stories of 'older folk' having another swipe at life and all that follows this book is funny, heart-warming, makes you feel good... a joy to read... 10/10.'

Until the Last of Me Audiobook

Until the Last of Me

Brought to you by Penguin. The First Rule is the most important: 'Always run, never fight'. Over 100 generations, Mia's family has shaped Earth's history to push humanity to the stars, making brutal, wrenching choices along the way. And now Mia finds herself about to help launch the first people into space. She can't take them to the stars, not quite yet. But with her adversary almost upon her, and with the future of the planet at stake, it's becoming clearer that obeying the First Rule is no longer an option. For the first time since her line's first generation, Mia will have to choose to stand her ground, knowing that the overwhelming odds mean that she risks not only her bloodline, but also the future of the human race. Showing that truth is stranger than fiction, Sylvain Neuvel weaves a sci-fi thriller reminiscent of Blake Crouch and Andy Weir in Until the Last of Me, blending a fast-moving, darkly satirical look at the 1960s space race with an exploration of the amorality of progress and the nature of violence. Praise for Sylvain Neuvel 'It's fascinating to see how Neuvel weaves together fact and fiction . . . a blast. Seriously clever' - SFX 'An alt-history with a difference. Traces the true story of the development of rocket science but adds an alien-conspiracy-theory edge . . . Good fun' - Guardian 'Wry narration, wired action . . . Fans of alternate history and intelligent sci-fi will love this' - Publishers Weekly © Sylvain Neuvel 2022 (P) Penguin Audio 2022

A World of Beauty: Tales from Pavlysh Audiobook

A World of Beauty: Tales from Pavlysh

Author: Vasily Sukhomlinsky Narrator: Jilly Bond Release Date: December 2021

A World of Beauty: Tales from Pavlysh contains 19 charming little tales about the beauty of the natural world, and how nature supports all living creatures. A chicken hatches some duck eggs. A rowan tree welcomes some beautiful, crested birds to feed on its berries. A blade of grass slumbers through the winter and awakens to joyfully greet the spring. In some of the stories, people engage with this beauty. A child admires the magic beauty of a snowflake, “a six-pointed star, so beautiful and shiny, that a fairy-tale master might have cut it from a plate of silver”. A boy is woken at dawn by his father, and together they go to a field so they can listen to the song of a lark, “sprinkling the field with magic sounds”. A young girl breaks the thorns off an acacia, so that a butterfly will not prick itself. In other stories, animals help each other. A hedgehog shares its winter shelter with a grasshopper. A squirrel shares a pinecone with a woodpecker. All the stories, beautifully narrated by Jilly Bond, reflect the poetic vision of nature that Vasily Sukhomlinsky shared with students in his school in the Ukrainian village of Pavlysh. The print and eBook editions of this audio book are beautifully illustrated by students from Ukraine and Belarus.
