            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.

            'It won't matter how many diamonds you find if you lose the love of your child.' When six-year-old Clementine Knight loses her mother to malaria during the 1870s diamond rush in southern Africa, she is left to be raised by her destitute, alcoholic father, James. Much of Clementin...e's care falls to their trusty Zulu companion, Joseph One-Shoe, and the unlikely pair form an unbreakable bond. When the two men uncover a large, flawless diamond, James believes he has finally secured their future, but the discovery of the priceless gem comes at a huge cost. A dark bargain is struck to do whatever it takes to return Clementine to a respectable life at the Grant family's sprawling estate in northern England -while the diamond disappears. Years on, Clementine overhears talk of a paragon diamond coming onto the market. Long-buried memories of her childhood in Africa and her beloved Joseph One-Shoe are triggered, as she questions who she can trust. To solve the mystery of what happened to her loved ones all those years ago, she must confront a painful history and finally bring justice to bear. From the harsh desert of Africa's Kimberley diamond mine to the misty, green plains of northern England, The Diamond Hunter is a breathtaking adventure story about trust and betrayal, the ultimate quest for truth, and a love that is truly priceless.

            'Engaging, complex, enlightening and authentic...' Mrs B's Book Reviews on Without a Doubt When twenty-five year old journalist, Zara Ellison receives her mother's ominous text message, 'Call me when you can', Zara knows it's not good news. Her brother is seriously unwell on thei...r family farm 400 kilometres away and Lynda Ellison needs Zara's help at home. Two weeks later, Zara has left her much-loved city life and is unpacking boxes in her new, rather empty house in Barker. She'd been right in the thick of reporting on an explosive court case in Adelaide. Animal welfare activists had stormed a farm determined to do damage, but it had all gone wrong and one man had lost his life. The case threatened to divide city and country. And there'd been one mysterious man present who, over the five days of the trial, had come to Zara's curious notice. He seemed to have no reason to be there, no-one knew him, nor could she find out anything about him. With her job on the Farming Journal, and an introduction to Detective Dave Burrows, his friendly wife Kim and Dave's second-in-charge, Senior Constable Jack Higgins, Zara's stint in the country isn't as quiet as she'd feared. If only there was a miracle cure for her brother. After more terrible farming accidents and reports of unidentified drones flying over farmlands, Zara is shocked by a chance sighting of that mystery man from the courtroom and by witnessing Jack Higgins in a role she'd never have believed. What is the significance of the mystery man and what is Jack playing at? Wrapped in a love of family, friendship, crime and mystery, Starting From Now is another compelling and enjoyable novel from the authentic voice of Fleur McDonald. 'Where the River Runs is a novel I highly recommend. This delightful cast of characters deliver a cracking story from start to finish.' - Theresa Smith Writes 'Without a Doubt is another fabulous romantic suspense - high on the suspense - novel.
