A PLACE CALLED WINTER Patrick Gale
A Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller in both hardback and paperback, A Place Called Winter was also shortlisted for the Costa Novel Award, the Walter Scott Prize and the Green Carnation Award.
To find yourself, sometimes you must lose everything.
A shy but privileged elder son, Harry Cane has followed convention at every step. Even the beginnings of an illicit, dangerous affair do little to shake the foundations of his muted existence – until the shock of discovery and the threat of arrest force him to abandon his wife and child and sign up for emigration to Canada.
Remote and unforgiving, his allotted homestead in a place called Winter is a world away from the golden suburbs of turn-of-the-century Edwardian England. And yet it is here, isolated in a seemingly harsh landscape, under the threat of war and madness that the fight for survival will reveal in Harry an inner strength and capacity for love beyond anything he has ever known before.
‘This is an intensely personal book. Gale was inspired by a true tale from his own family history, and the depth of feeling shows… his most powerfully moving novel yet’ Independent
‘Patrick Gale has written a book which manages to be both tender and epic, and carries the unmistakeable tang of a true story. I loved it’ Jojo Moyes
‘A tender tale of loss and love’ Sunday Times

THE INVENTION OF WINGS Sue Monk Kidd
From the celebrated author of the international bestseller The Secret Life of Bees comes an extraordinary novel about two exceptional women.
Sarah Grimké is the middle daughter. The one her mother calls difficult and her father calls remarkable. On Sarah’s eleventh birthday, Hetty ‘Handful’ Grimké is taken from the slave quarters she shares with her mother, wrapped in lavender ribbons, and presented to Sarah as a gift. Sarah knows what she does next will unleash a world of trouble. She also knows that she cannot accept. And so, indeed, the trouble begins …
A powerful, sweeping novel, inspired by real events, and set in the American Deep South in the nineteenth century, THE INVENTION OF WINGS evokes a world of shocking contrasts, of beauty and ugliness, of righteous people living daily with cruelty they fail to recognise; and celebrates the power of friendship and sisterhood against all the odds.
‘The fascinating story of real-life abolitionist sisters, Sarah and Angelina Grimké… A splendid tribute to a pair of true heroines’ The Times
‘Unflinchingly depicts the brutality of slavery… a resonant, illuminating novel’ Observer
‘Wonderful – well-written, moving and engaging by turns, and always compelling’ Daily Mail

WHEN GOD WAS A RABBIT Sarah Winman
Both a Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller and a Richard and Judy Book Club pick, WHEN GOD WAS A RABBIT was praised as one of the most striking and original novels of the year and continues to captivate and enchant readers.
1968. The year Paris takes to the streets. The year Martin Luther King loses his life for a dream. The year Eleanor Maud Portman is born.
Young Elly’s world is shaped by those who inhabit it: her loving but maddeningly distractible parents; a best friend who smells of chips and knows exotic words like ‘slag’; an ageing fop who tapdances his way into her home, a Shirley Bassey impersonator who trails close behind; lastly, of course, a rabbit called God. In a childhood peppered with moments both ordinary and extraordinary, Elly’s one constant is her brother Joe.
Twenty years on, Elly and Joe are fully grown and as close as they ever were. Until, that is, one bright morning when a single, earth-shattering event threatens to destroy their bond forever.
Spanning four decades and moving between suburban Essex, the wild coast of Cornwall and the streets of New York, this is a story about childhood, eccentricity, the darker side of love and sex, the pull and power of family ties, loss and life. More than anything, it’s a story about love in all its forms.
‘Gloriously offbeat… Winman’s narrative voice is beautifully true, with a child’s unsentimental clarity. A superb debut’ The Times
‘Thronging with incident, wonder and outré language… sharply funny, whimsical and innovative’ Guardian
‘Captivating… rendered with an appealing frankness, precision and emotional acuity’ Observer
