Maid : hard work, low pay, and a mother's will to survive / by Land, Stephanie,

Publication: . xiv, 270 pages ; 24 cm.

This is a story of struggles and triumps over adversity through hard work and resilience. It is a story of putting one foot in front of the other each day to forge a new life for yourself and your family despite all the odds. I felt very inspired by this story and it is a tribute to it's author Roxane and her courage to not give up on her dreams. Added 13/10/2022 by Nicola

Awakening in the dream : contact with the divine / by Wilcock, David,

Publication: . x, 562 pages : 21 cm

David Wilcock combines his own dream journey with events in his own life and those he meets on the way. David's books are always beautifully researched and mind bending. If you like to think outside the box and believe in synchronicity and mysteries you will love this book. Added 10/10/2022 by Nicola

Maybe you should talk to someone : a therapist, her therapist, and our lives revealed / by Gottlieb, Lori,

Publication: . 415 pages ; 21 cm.

This powerful book shows how the collaborative nature of Therapy can help everyone including the Therapist. It details the journey of the Therapist when the "wheels fall off"in her own life but also the heartwarming stories of some of her Patients too. Insightful and touching. Added 06/10/2022 by Nicola

It ends at midnight / by Tyce, Harriet,

Publication: . 328 pages ; 24 cm.

This book deals with sexual abuse/ rape and has explicit sexual story lines. Not a pleasant read. Added 03/09/2022 by Jennifer

The show girl : a novel / by Harrison, Nicola,

Publication: . 390 pages ; 25 cm

The summary on the back says it all. The writer takes one on an incredible journey. Transporting the reader to many places from humble beginnings to glamour, fame and dispair not to forget the plot twists along the way. I did not want it to end. Nicola Harrison could certainly write a sequel!

The devil's bargain / by Rimington, Stella,

Publication: . xi, 257 pages ; 24 cm.

Stella Rimington is one of my Favourite Authors and this book is one of her best so far. The story is intertwined from beginning to end with believable content due to her many years at Mi5. A really riveting read. Added 06/07/2022 by Nicola

The princess diarist / by Fisher, Carrie,

Publication: . 257 pages : 23 cm.

Most have known Carrie Fisher as an actress but what many don't know is that she is also a very talented author. All of her books including this one display a very dry and witty humour making this a fun and easy read. The inside story of her time as a fledgling actress in Star Wars and excerpts from her journals make this a very poignant memoir for Star Wars fans. Added 21/03/2022 by Nicola

The lost apothecary / by Penner, Sarah,

Publication: . 301 pages : 24 cm

A charming story of past and present lives intersecting in London when an American woman finds a vial in the Thames. The journey to discover it's origins and the people involved changes her life. An easy read with some interesting historical elements to enjoy. Added 12/03/2022 by Nicola

Enid : the scandalous life of a glamorous Australian who dazzled the world / by Wainwright, Robert,

Publication: . 356 pages, 16 pages of plates : 24 cm.

Beautifully written and a very interesting read! The story of Enid Lindeman who fate dealt an interesting hand. A life very well lived through some of history's challenging times. Will read more by this Author in the Future. Added 02/12/2021 by Nicola

The Thursday Murder Club / by Osman, Richard,

Publication: . 450 pages (large print) ; 24 cm.

A good idea. Being Book 1, there is a lot of things that happened in the past that are not satisfactorily explained in this book. - hopefully in subsequent episodes.

The hope flower / by Dettman, Joy,

Publication: . 419 pages ; 24 cm.

The continuation of 'Henry's Daughter'. Excellent read.

Pulpit Rock / by Rhodes, Kate,

Publication: . 392 pages : 24 cm.

There's getting to be a sameness about the plots in this series.

Talk of the town / by Johns, Rachael,

Publication: . 11 audio discs (CD) (11 hr., 13 min.) : 12 cm ; in container.

This was an excellent story, narrated very well. Meg's story has many twists and turns and the mystery of her new home had me riveted. Added 16/12/2020 by Maria

Great collection, a must read. Added 21/08/2020 by Taimur

The sleeping beauty killer / by Clark, Mary Higgins,

Publication: . 301 pages ; 24 cm.

Unfortunately, after reading a couple of titles from this series, it's obvious in the first few pages who the 'Baddy' is going to be; but still a good read.

The secrets of strangers / by Norman, Charity,

Publication: . 340 pages ; 24 cm.

I think this is the saddest story I have ever read. Make sure you have a whole box of tissues!

Secrets of death / by Booth, Stephen,

Publication: . 394 pages ; 24 cm

I enjoyed this story even though it was challenging at times. The book looks at some of the reasons for suicide and methods. It raises questions about euthenasia and what can be found on the internet Added 15/04/2020 by Jennifer

Publication: . 467 pages ; 24 cm
