            The Dutch House: An international bestseller - 'The book of the autumn' (Sunday Times) (Hardback)

            Danny Conroy grows up in the Dutch House, a lavish folly in small-town Pennsylvania taken on by his property developer father. Though his father is distant and his mother is absent, Danny has his beloved sister Maeve: Maeve, with her wall of black hair, her delicacy, her brillian...ce. Life is comfortable and coherent, played out under the watchful eyes of the house's former owners in the frames of their oil paintings, or under the cover of the draperies around the window seat in Maeve's room. Then one day their father brings Andrea home: Andrea, small and neat, a dark hat no bigger than a saucer pinned over a twist of her fair hair. Though they cannot know it, Andrea's advent to the Dutch House sows the seed of the defining loss of Danny and Maeve's lives. Her arrival will exact a banishment: a banishment whose reverberations will echo for the rest of their lives. For all that the world is open to him, for all that he can accumulate, for all that life is full, Danny and his sister are drawn back time and again to the place they can never enter, knocking in vain on the locked door of the past. For behind the mystery of their own enforced exile is that of their mother's self-imposed one: an absence more powerful than any presence they have known. Told with Ann Patchett's inimitable blend of wit and heartbreak, The Dutch House is a story of family, betrayal, love, responsibility and sacrifice; of the powerful bonds of place and time that magnetize and repel us for our whole lives, and the lives of those who survive us.

'This is the comprehensive guide to health for every mother - new, or years out - who has ever felt tired, rundown, or just not like herself.'- Gwyneth Pal...trow Inspired by one of the most viewed GOOP articles ever, this groundbreaking book explores a never-before-named syndrome - 'postnatal depletion' - and offers ad easy-to-follow program for mothers to reclaim their health and energy after giving birth. It's all too common to hear new mums talk about 'baby brain' and extreme fatigue. But what if the physical toll of giving birth, breastfeeding or chasing a toddler that was sapping your strength? What if it was something deeper? Dr Oscar Serrallach has spent his medical career witnessing women fail hormonally, nutritionally and emotionally to get back on their feet after having a baby. The true cause? A syndrome he calls Postnatal Depletion. THE POSTNATAL DEPLETION CURE is the first book to name the syndrome and offer a practical program to help mothers replenish their bodies after having a baby. The book includes a comprehensive guide to the nutrients women need to enhance organ function and balance hormones, along with advice on how to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine and get necessary rest, despite the demands of motherhood. Filled with practical takeaways and many success stories, THE POSTNATAL DEPLETION CURE will help mothers to be the best they can be physically and emotionally.

            In early 2017, Good Weekend magazine published Stephanie?s article The Great Pretender about her experience with a sinister romantic conman. She thought the story was over. But it was only just beginning. Hundreds of readers wrote to her, telling of similar experiences. A dozen o...r more people recognised the man in the story and wanted to tell Stephanie what they knew about him. She formed a connection with 'the other woman? who also wanted to share her story. Fake is a powerful, richly layered investigative memoir, drawing on Stephanie?s personal story, stories of other women who have been in similar, emotionally abusive relationships; and expert voices. Fake is a story for our times but is timeless too, exploring universal themes - the intensely complex and neurotic story of raw human need. The backstory- In her mid 40s, Stephanie had been coming to grips with an unhappy reality familiar to millions of other women around the world- she would not now ever have the children she had hoped for and it was possible she might never find the soulmate that her mother and society?s embedded princess mythology had led her to believe would one day be hers. Then, through an online dating site, she met 'Scott?. An exhilarating romance began. He said he was a former architect who now had a sheep farm. He had a love for the environment and seemed a compassionate, truthful and decent man. He talked about their future together. But as the months wore on, his behaviour became increasingly erratic. Stephanie grappled with depression and anxiety as a result. Cancellation followed cancellation- he?d been poisoned by sheep drench; his dog had been bitten by a snake; his crazy ex-wife had failed to collect his son from the school disco; his business partners were demanding a meeting. There were red flags, but Stephanie was addicted to hope, immersed in dreams of the future she hoped to share with him. One day, Scott failed to turn up for an interstate flight to the wedding he was to atten

            From the global pioneer whose work inspired The 8 Week Blood Sugar Diet, a Iife-changing guide to reversing type 2 diabetes. For centuries type 2 diabetes has been regarded as an incurable, lifelong condition - a case of `Abandon hope all ye who enter here'. Now, thanks to Profes...sor Roy Taylor, there is a way out to reversing the fastest growing disease in the world. After years of studying the causes of diabetes, in 2006 Professor Taylor and his team at Newcastle University finally found the `missing piece in the scientific jigsaw', a Eureka moment that launched a multi-million-dollar trial involving 280 type 2 diabetics from around the United Kingdom. In 2018 they published the remarkable, life-changing results. In Life Without Diabetes, Professor Taylor presents the definitive guide to understanding and reversing type 2. In simple and accessible language, he deconstructs the complex workings of the body as an energy system, illustrates how our modern lifestyle has interfered with the mechanics of this process and offers a surprisingly simple solution, in the form of the 3-step program he developed with his team of researchers, also known as the `Newcastle Diet'. Professor Taylor's aim is to transform the treatment of type 2 diabetes across the globe. In this book, he not only points anyone with type 2 towards a return to full health, but offers practical and proven advice on how to enjoy life and remain free of the disease - for good.
