            She's gone ... will her family pull together, or fall further apart? Classic, women-centred fiction, a complex, multi-layered story about family and community, from the author of the warmly received Home at Last. 'Functionally dysfunctional.' That's how financial analyst Grace Fa...irley describes her family in the small South Australian farming community of Miners Ridge - a family fractured by tragedy and kept that way by anger, resentment and petty jealousies. As the eldest sibling, Grace tries to keep the family in touch, but now she's accepted a promotion to the London office. Time-zones and an enormous workload mean she's forced to take a step back, although she finds time to stay in contact with Miners Ridge landscape gardener Aaron Halliday. Sarah Fairley, Grace's mother, fled Miners Ridge and her embittered husband eight years ago. Now, in the absence of Grace, she finds herself pulled back to the small town where her estranged children and grandchildren live. Drawn into the local community, and trying to rebuild family relationships, she uncovers a long-kept secret that could change her world ... Can Grace, Sarah and their family find a way to heal? Who will have the courage to make the first move?

            As he flees the police, Ned Kelly scribbles his narrative in semiliterate but magically descriptive prose. To his pursuers he is a thief and a murderer. To his own people he's a hero for opposing the English. Ned, who saw his first prison cell at fifteen, has become the most want...ed man in the wild colony of Victoria, taking over towns and defying authority. Here is a classic outlaw tale, made alive by the skill of a great novelist. There are no sentences like these in all Australian literature and yet they could only have grown from our soil.

            An intriguingly sharp, dark, tender, witty, incisive and very, very moving novel. This novel is about a woman called Martha. She knows there is something wrong with her but she doesn't know what it is. Her husband Patrick thinks she is fine. He says everyone has something, the th...ing is just to keep going. Martha told Patrick before they got married that she didn't want to have children. He said he didn't mind either way because he has loved her since he was 13 and making her happy is all that matters, although he does not seem able to do it. Eventually, Martha finds out what is wrong, understands that she's gone through life missing a crucial piece of information about herself. But now she knows, it's too late. But maybe it will turn out that you can stop loving somebody and start again, from nothing. That you can love the same person twice. The book is set in London and Oxford. It is sad and funny.

Gripping, dramatic and with twists you won't see coming, this book held me in its spell from the first page. I loved this book.' Sally Hepworth, author of The Family Next Door 'A pacy, gripping thriller, but also full of heart and plenty of laughs for comic relief ...

            Jeff is dying. Haunted by memories and grappling with the shame of his desires, he runs away to remote Scotland with a piece of experimental tech that allows him to enter the mind of someone in the past. Instructed to only use it three times, Jeff - self-indulgent, isolated and d...eteriorating - ignores this advice. In the late 1860s, Leonora lives a contented life in the Scottish Highlands, surrounded by nature, her hands and mind kept busy. Contemplating her future and the social conventions that bind her, a secret romantic friendship with the local laird is interrupted when her father sends her to stay with her aunt in Edinburgh - an intimidating, sooty city; the place where her mother perished. But Leonora's ability to embrace her new life is shadowed by a dark presence that begins to lurk behind her eyes, and strange visions that bear no resemblance to anything she has ever seen or known... A Superior Spectre is a highly accomplished debut novel about our capacity for curiosity, and our dangerous entitlement to it, and reminds us the scariest ghosts aren't those that go bump in the night, but those that are born and create a place for themselves in the human soul.
