              1879, Queensland. Fleeing her family home, 19-year-old Mary Oxnam has few prospects and no connections. Plain and penniless, she must rely on her audacious wit and fierce intelligence to survive. Mary soon finds work as a pianist in a Cooktown brothel, a cover for more lucrative ...employment as a spy into smuggling operations. Within a year she has moved to Lizard Island, locked into a marriage of convenience. It's a rough, isolated place, crawling with hidden enemies - and unexpected temptation. Drawing on the little-known history of lawless Far North Queensland and based on the true story of a remarkable woman and her intriguing diary, The Secret Fate of Mary Watson is a thrilling tale of peril and intrigue, infused with a heady combination of beauty and foreboding.

              With the success of her debut novel still fresh, Anna Romer's new novel Lyrebird Hill promises to be every bit as captivating. Ruby Cardel has the semblance of a normal life - a loving boyfriend, a career she loves - but in one terrible moment, her life begins to unravel. The dis...covery that the death of her beloved sister, so many years ago, was not the accident she'd always been told makes her question all she's known about herself. Travelling back home to Lyrebird Hill, the beautiful bushland property where she grew up with her mother and sister, Ruby begins to remember the year that has been blocked in her memory. Snatches of her childhood with her beautiful sister, and Ruby's only friendship - with the boy from the next property, a foster kid she'd play games with in the bush at midnight. Then Ruby uncovers a cache of ancient letters from a long-lost relative, Brenna Magavin, written from her cell in a Tasmanian gaol. Brenna is about to be hanged for murder, and Ruby discovers that her family line is littered with tragedy and violence. As she reads, the gaps in Ruby's memory come to her. And as she pieces together the shards of truth, what she finally discovers will shock her to the core - about what happened to Jamie that fateful day, and how she died.

              A Long Way From Home (Audio disc / Other, Unabridged edition)

              By Carey, Peter; Read by Oxer, Eloise; Phillips, Amos

              Carey's most ambitious novel since True History of the Kelly Gang: a celebration and interrogation of the Australia of Peter's childhood. He takes us on a wild ride around the country in 1954 by way of the famous Redex car trial, during which our protagonist, Willy Bachhuber, lea...rns the poignant truth of his troubled past. It's a tender and wonderfully wry portrait of Australia in the 1950s, reminiscent of Illywhacker in concerns and some characters. We're in Bacchus Marsh in the 1950s, with car salesmen, an early aviator, and the lives of Irene Bobs and Willy Bachhuber. The striking Irene is ahead of her time, a fearless, big-hearted, independently minded woman. Her next door neighbour Willy seems to be constantly in flight from his own life. He lacks social confidence but is extremely well read, so much so that he's a radio quiz champ. And he has a particular fondness for maps. When Irene's husband Titch decides to enter the Redex trial, Irene goes with him as co-driver, and Willy as navigator. Fantastically fun and funny, Peter's new novel is a major achievement.

But nothing could prepare her for the startling revelation that her purpose - the task she was put on Earth to acc...omplish - is not as straightforward as she thought. Now, torn between her increasingly complicated feelings for Christian and her love for her boyfriend, Tucker, Clara struggles to make sense of what she was supposed to do the day of the fire. And, as she is drawn further into the world of part-angels and the growing conflict between White Wings and Black Wings, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning.

              Also published under the title 'Lost Autumn'. In 1920, 17-year-old Maddie Bright gratefully accepts a job as a serving girl on the royal tour of Australia by Edward, Prince of Wales. Maddie's talents soon earn her the respect of Helen Burns, the prince's vivacious press secretar...y, and Rupert Waters, his most loyal man, and Maddie is in awe of Edward himself, the 'people's' prince. What starts as a desire to help her family, devastated by the recent war, becomes for Maddie a chance to work on something that matters. When the unthinkable happens, it is swift and life changing. Decades later, Maddie Bright is living in a ramshackle house in Paddington, Brisbane. She has Ed, her drunken and devoted neighbour, to talk to, the television news to shout at, and door-knocker religions to join. But when London journalist Victoria Byrd gets the sniff of a story that might lead to the true identity of a famously reclusive writer, Maddie's version of her own story may change.
