As the saying goes: 'a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step'. This is certainly what the author of this book advocates; takes everything one step at a time without trying do it all at once. Take your first step to a brand spanking new life by reading this book.
Shortlisted for the Costa Poetry Award 2006. Costa Book Awards 2006 Judges' comment: "Elegantly crafted poems which have an emotional narrative that is both wistful and raw."
Shortlisted for the 2006 Duncan Lawrie Dagger.Not one to read if you're squeamish, or if you're at home alone, this is a brilliant mystery from a debut novelist. Fantastically well-written, this forensic thriller was inspired by a trip to a place called The Body Farm. It has a great plot, convincing characterisation and hopefully won't be the last we see of Dr David Hunter.
Alice never imagined that she would end up like this. Is she the only mother who feels so permanently panic-stricken at the terrors of the modern world - or is it normal to sit up in bed all night popping bubble wrap? She worries that too much gluten and dairy may be hindering her children's mental arithmetic. She frets that there are too many cars on the road to let them out of the 4x4. Finally she resolves to take control and tackle her biggest worry of all: her daughter is definitely not going to fail that crucial secondary school entrance exam. Because Alice has decided to take the test in her place...
A warm, funny and touching novel about two very different women with one thing in common - both are struggling to find their places in the world.
A match is one soldier in Israel Defence Force code. Israeli soldiers are forbidden to publish their memoirs and so this is presented as fiction. It is a war book with blood and guts and gore. A powerful account of purposeful aggression; a good portrayal of the camaraderie of small groups facing a common danger and a very fine piece of writing indeed. As an Israeli regular solder, we are given one side of the controversial conflict, but the purpose of this book is not political but rather a portrait of the damage of war on the young men who face it.Comparison: Norman Mailer, Michael Herr, Mark Bowden.Similar this month: None but try Henry Porter or Terence Strong.
Danger, heartbreak and eventual happiness are the hallmarks of Anne Bennett’s novels and this one is certainly no exception. A superb saga of love, loss and family closeness, set against the tumultuous years of the war and its aftermath.
A genuinely inspiring read for women entering the â€œsecond adulthoodâ€ of their lives. Levine speaks frankly about how daunting it is to be a baby boom generation female trying to adjust to the hormonal and physical changes of menopause in the 21st century. But for all the confusion, she discovers, both through research and her own experiences, that it can be a time in which women blossom and reinvent themselves, let go of the past and embrace new challenges.
A romantic suspense novel with plenty of mystery. An amensiac is admitted to hospital after being injured and is treated by a young psychiatrist, Dr Elizabeth Santer who supports him despite the police believing that he is a terrorist. It's well written with great characters but definitely for readers who are after a more fun thriller.
The instincts of a mother come to the fore in this remarkable story of the rehabilitation of her almost mortally injured son when all medical support had ceased. Their courage and determination is a sight to behold and with it brings a powerful message of hope. Whether or not youâ€™ve ever loved or lost this is a must read.
If you have any recollection of the brilliant novelist Angela Carter, then youâ€™ll be thrilled at this wonderfully powerful collection of short stories from a supremely talented author. If not youâ€™ll love the beautifully elegant prose which youâ€™ll savour long after youâ€™ve finished it.
