              The Last Summer of Ada Bloom
               

              The Last Summer of Ada Bloom (EPUB ebook)

              By Murray, Martine

              In a small country town during one long, hot summer, the Bloom family begins to unravel. Marital secrets, new and long-hidden, surface-with devastating effect. Martha is straining against the confines of her life, lost in regret for what might have been, when an old flame show...s up. In turn, her husband, Mike, becomes frustrated with his increasingly distant wife. While teenagers Tilly and Ben are about to step out into the world, nine-year-old Ada is holding onto a childhood that will soon be lost to her. When Ada discovers an abandoned well beneath a rusting windmill, she is drawn to its darkness and danger. And when she witnesses a shocking and confusing event, the well's foreboding looms large in her mind-a driving force as events lead inexorably towards tragedy. The Last Summer of Ada Bloom is a beguiling story about the fragility of family relationships, about the secrets we keep and the power they hold to shape our lives. And about the love that somehow holds it all together. Martine Murray was born in Melbourne and now lives in Castlemaine in Victoria. She is an award-winning children's novelist and illustrator. The Last Summer of Ada Bloom is her first novel for adults. 'Martine Murray's writing is majestical and sophisticated.' Books+Publishing 'Murray's storytelling is so fresh and beguiling that, for a moment, we feel this is great wisdom heard for the first time.' Times 'Murray moves easily between the everyday and the sublime, her language nuanced, slow, pleasurable.' Adelaide Advertiser

              Marsh and Me (EPUB ebook)

              By Murray, Martine

              'This is a gentle and tender story of finding yourself, finding new friends and finding your voice. It's for anyone who has a song hidden within them.' Younger Sun There's a hill out the back of Joey's house. Hardly anyone goes there-it's not a beautiful place, just a covered...-over old rubbish tip. But Joey likes it up there. It's his hill-somewhere he likes to go to wonder about life. He longs to be the best at something, to be a famous astronaut, or mountain climber, to stand out. When Joey discovers a tree house in an old peppercorn tree on the hill, he is annoyed that someone has invaded his special place. But he is also curious about who the intruder could be. But making contact isn't easy. The tree-house girl is wild and hostile and full of secrets-Joey needs to work out a way to win her over. And as he does, he finds a way to shine. Marsh and Me is a story about friendship and trust and learning to believe in yourself and what makes you special. Martine Murray's beautifully rounded characters, with all their self-doubts, yearnings and wise insights, will delight readers young and old. Martine Murray was born in Melbourne, and now lives in Castlemaine. Her most recent novel, Molly and Pim and the Millions of Stars, was shortlisted for the 2016 CBCA Award for Younger Readers. 'This is a story of an unlikely friendship, a common theme in children's books, but one that feels refreshing due to how nice these children are. Martine Murray captures sadness without wallowing in it...Joey and Marsh's story is both reassuring and encouraging for children aged eight and up.' Books + Publishing 'A cute and quirky middle-grade novel about imagination, unlikely friendships and music.' Paper Fury 'Marsh and Me is a stirring coming-of-age story with a wonderful main character. Murray is a master of telling gentle stories, exploring the small worries and victories of daily life, revealing magic in the mundane.' Readings 'The novel's strength is in its ability t
