Tags: Family/Relationships/Home

When Jane Leonard gave half of her house to her only son, little did she realise that within twelve months, she would be forced to sell the home she had lived in for nearly five decades. 


The choice for this action was not hers, but the events that led up to her handing over fifty percent of Magnolia House paled by comparison to what happened after the ink had dried on the documents that named the new owners.

It is the very worst time to be in the woods. 


Oisin’s plan is to come with his bow to help Aedan and Doona lead a party of children into the forest to gather the maidenhair seedlings his people would take across the sea as they flee the trolls who hunt them as prey. Maybe he can be back in time for supper. And if he only dares to dream, he might also be back in time to speak with Doona alone. 
Dyr's plan is an early evening head smash for the foolish Elves who think they can steal away to the sands of the endless eye sting water and build their strange float huts. They will make a glorious feast. 
But on the way, Dyr's brutes stumble across Oisin's gathering party and attack, leaving Aedan mortally wounded and scattering Doona and the children to flee in terror into the dark mountain woods, only to be run down and captured by the bloodthirsty trolls. 

Can Oisin find the bonfires of the trolls and rescue them before it’s too late? And what then? Will any of them live long enough to reach safety?

For her Master, who she must obey.

A mask she wears, made of the finest lace,
An expensive silk to bind, that only enhance..."

Dudgeon's Bridge by Adrian L. Youseman
dud.jpg
Genre: Historical/Crime/Thriller/Suspense/English History
Tags: Civil War/English Civil War/Roundheads/Royalists

English soil, so treasured, hasn’t always been a green and pleasant land. The times when life was cheap and governments were proved with butchery and bloodshed, are, in reality, only a few hundred years behind us. The history we take for granted is littered with the prejudices of originating scholars and the editing of the victors from any given age. 

The 17th century Civil War split families and towns, killing by proportion more English men than WW1 and WW2 combined. History has polished its account to let us believe that somehow it was the birth of our democratic nation, but this was no rite.
Dudgeon’s Bridge takes you through these times. 
A boy is born into a town beset by the worst of these troubles and must struggle to make his mark, whilst trying to look after his family. We know too well in today’s world that one simple life can change the world we know, but little of those in the past who did. This is the account that’s waiting to be told, for the monstrosity of war creates its children and just like so many of them, the truth is so often the first to be orphaned.

Forever Love by Vicki Case

Genre: Poetry/Love/Loss/Poetic/Family/Relationships
Tags: Grief/Grieving/Love lost/Adultery/

To lose someone you love through death is tragic. Losing someone you love—your soul mate and best friend—via an ambiguous and unexpected text message is devastating; it can destroy your soul. When you lose a loved one, you go through the process of grieving that enables you to accept their loss and eventually let go. When the person you love severs you from their life and walks away without offering an explanation, how can you do the same? How can you understand and accept the loss so that you can move on with your life?


Forever Love is a collection of poetry that considers the process of rebuilding a life after such a callous and devastating loss. The fourth volume in a series, it explores how author Vicki Case worked through this dark period in her life, searching for closure and answers to her questions. In the midst of her grief, she discovered the power of the written word in healing and began composing poetry that reflected the raw emotions she was experiencing.

Forever Love contains soul-revealing and vividly honest descriptions of her emotions as she looked for a way to move beyond the hurt and devastation of a love lost.

Prepare to be swept away by a heart-warming tale of family relationships and love 

Three women. Three generations. Sacrifices for love…

Nicole becomes an unwitting catalyst for change in the family. Two women are forced to reveal long-buried secrets. One going back as far as the Second World War. Lives are transformed as choices have to be made and the past laid to rest… 
This contemporary romantic drama is the second of The Guernsey Novels, a series of stand-alone books by the award-winning author Anne Allen. It is likely to appeal to lovers of the works of Joanna Trollope and Maeve Binchy.
"A sensitive, heart-felt novel about family relationships, identity, adoption, second chances at love… With romance, weddings, boat trips, lovely gardens and more, Finding Mother is a dazzle of a book, a perfect holiday read." Lindsay Townsend, author of The Snow Bride.

Genre: Science Fiction/Fantasy/Young Adult/Time Travel

Jade Gonzalez always wanted to go to Hawaii, so a winter vacation to visit her mother’s college friend Leilani sounds great. The trip comes with a price though. Jade has to take her midterm exams early, and she won’t get to spend Christmas with her grandmother. Even worse, she’ll miss the school’s Winter Ball, and she was just asked to go to the dance with one of the cutest guys in school. All things considered, it’s a disgruntled Jade who boards the flight to paradise. Once she arrives in Hawaii, however, everything changes. The beauty of the islands captures her heart, and Leilani’s sixteen-year-old son, Kai, just might be enough to make up for missing the Winter Ball. When Kai sings about the legend of Hidden Falls, which grants your heart’s desire, Jade has to see the magic waterfall for herself. A hike to the falls ends in disaster, though, with Kai injured and trapped while Jade is knocked unconscious. When she wakes, Kai is gone, and in his place is another boy in old-fashioned clothes. Pono Kaluhiwa and his pretty friend Ilima seem familiar, and when Jade finally places them, she’s shocked. When she first met them, they were an elderly couple enjoying a luau. The magic of Hidden Falls has transported Jade to 1950s Hawaii! Now Pono has fallen for Jade, who knows he’s supposed to be with Ilima, even as she’s attracted to the handsome boy. If Jade stays in the past, she could change all of their lives forever. And what of Kai, trapped at Hidden Falls fifty-six years in the future? Unless Jade gets home, he might never be found. A story of romance and first love set against the beautiful mountains and beaches of Hawaii, A Time in Paradise reminds readers they don’t need to settle for a good life when they could have a great one. But, for Jade, will that life be in the past or in the present?

Women of the Way: Embracing the Camino by Jane V. Blanchard
womenway.jpg
Genre: Travel/Travel & Holiday/Europe/Adventure/Non-Fiction

What do you like most when reading about adventures: descriptions about the terrain, the culture, the challenges, the personal growth, the interactions between other adventures? Women of the Way successfully combines all these elements in a heartfelt and personal recounting of Jane V. Blanchard's 2011 five-hundred mile pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago--hiking from St-Jean-Pied-de-Port in France over the Pyrenees to Roncesvalles in Spain, and then westward across northern Spain to Santiago de Compostella.


Though Women of the Way is about Jane's journey on the Camino de Santiago and discussions with women she met along the way, this is not a "chic" book. It is about embracing the Camino. Jane discusses how she prepared for the Camino, the daily rituals in long-distance walking, the camaraderie, the personal changes, and the beauty and appeal of the most popular of all the pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela, the Camino Frances.

With Love From Libby by Shirley Ford
shirley.jpg
Genre: Women's Fiction/Fiction

From the age of ten, Libby’s ambition was to join the police force. Her parents initially thought it amusing, but as she grew older, they tried their best to discourage her. At the age of twenty-one she achieved her dream and began a wonderful career alongside her best friend Carol. Neither her or Carol were involved in any serious relationship, they enjoyed life to the full, then one day, a sergeant by the name of Jack Smith entered her life. Ten years older than Libby, he directed all his arduous attention on her and within six months, she had fallen completely under his spell; much to the disbelief of all her colleagues. 

As happens in so many relationships, once Libby succumbed to Jack and they married, her life was never the same again. Her husband no longer gave her the attention she craved. He controlled her life right down to whom she could or could not go out with. He blamed her for the two daughters she produced, and ridiculed her for not having a son. She became a downtrodden housewife; the sort of character who you want to grasp by the shoulders and give her a good shake. 
Then Libby discovers a talent for writing. Her husband and daughters poke fun at her when they find out, so she continues to write in secret, building up a large repertoire of short stories, always about the same character. It is the only thing she has in her life to keep her sane. 
One day life takes a dramatic turn and Libby finds herself alone for the first time in years...

workshop.jpg
Genre: Humor/Humour/Comedy/Women's Literature

When four very different women respond to an advert for a course at the church hall promising women a ‘garden of earthly delights,’ not all of them know exactly what they’ve signed up for. And when they discover that a giant reproduction from the Kama Sutra has replaced the usual portrait of the Queen, more than one of them contemplates doing a runner before it’s too late. But then Jade Gate, their mysterious and charismatic workshop leader, arrives and sweeps them along with her extravagant enthusiasm. 


Before they know it, Reenie, Kate, Estelle and Janet are being encouraged to speak to their inner sex goddesses and to support each other in their mutual quest to become fully functioning sensual beings. It’s just a pity that personal conflicts and life events seem determined to thwart their common goal...
