              From Australia's best-loved storyteller comes the final book in the bestselling Matilda Saga It was one of Australia's greatest romances. The story of Clancy of the Overflow, who gave up so much for the woman he loved and admired. And now their story will be written as Jed McAlpi...ne has persuaded Nancy to tell the story of her grandparents, Clancy and Rose. But other tales lurk behind the folklore that surrounds Clancy and those are the stories of the women hidden in Australia's long history. The Honourable Flora McPherson, who travelled from England to marry Clancy and was then stranded on a drought-doomed property and lost all that was dearest to her. The brilliant but tragically flawed Maria, forced to hide behind both a man's name and a veil, and the extraordinary Mrs McKenzie, stolen from her Indigenous mother to work in the Government House kitchens, now a 'drover's boy'. And finally Rose, the last of her people, who escapes chains to eventually capture Clancy's heart. The final book in the magnificent Matilda Saga, this is a book about the many kinds of love. Clancy's love of the bush, immortalised in Paterson's poem. Nancy's deep understanding of her country, and her need to pass it on. But perhaps the most moving love story of all was the one that never happened, between Matilda O'Halloran and Clancy of the Overflow. But now there is another Matilda, and another Clancy. They will waltz beside the river, as a young Matilda did in 1894, as Jed writes her book and gives a voice to the forgotten: those strong and remarkable women who forged a nation.

              An unforgettable, inventive, and riveting epic saga about a mother, her daughters and their struggle to survive in a post-apocalyptic flooded world. After the Flood signals the arrival of a game-changing and necessary new voice in fiction. One hundred years into the future, the w...orld has been utterly transformed. Myra lives with her eight year old daughter, Pearl, in what used to be Nebraska. Just before Pearl's birth, floodwaters finally inundated their home after years of slowly overtaking the continent, starting with the great coastal cities. In its wake, the monstrous deluge has left an archipelago of mountaintop colonies surrounded by a deep expanse of open water. Stubbornly independent Myra fishes from her small boat, the Bird, coming onto land only to trade for supplies and information, gutting any man and taking on any obstacle that threatens their lives. Precocious, feisty Pearl is her one reason for living, and a distraction from the memories of her older daughter, Row, who was kidnapped during the terrifying surge that swept away their home. But then, in a violent confrontation with a stranger, Myra discovers that Row is not dead, but being held captive by a violent gang of raiders on the far-off coast of what used to be Greenland. Throwing aside her usual caution, Myra embarks on a perilous voyage into the icy northern seas to rescue her child. A compulsively readable novel that juxtaposes dark despair and soaring hope, Myra and Pearl's journey is exhilarating, action-packed, sometimes frightening, but ultimately laced with wonder, redemptive and astonishing.

              1830s Sydney Town - with its bar brawls, blackmail, friendship, romance, tattoos, gin and much more - is brought vividly to life as fiesty prostitute Friday, naive seamstress Harrie and cunning thief Sarah try to make their way as transported convict women. Driven by madness ...s...aved by love. 'A door slammed shut somewhere inside Harrie, trapping all that she was and everything she'd ever been. The voices had won. She was damned. She was ...no one.' 1831: Assigned to a good family in Sydney Town and now learning the art of tattoo, convict girl Harrie Clarke is still haunted by the horror of the brutal murder she and friends Friday Woolfe and Sarah Morgan committed the previous year. Powerful and vindictive criminal Bella Jackson continues to demand money in exchange for her silence regarding their crime. And just when it seems that Harrie and her fervent and long-time admirer James Downey might finally be united, an act of pure nastiness severely threatens their chances - and Harrie's life. When things go from bad to much, much worse for Harrie, she is left teetering on the brink. But Friday, in love at last, is battling demons of her own, and Sarah is forced to lie low for fear of attracting the attention of the police. Who will be the one to rescue Harrie?

              Long before Bletchley Park, Australia had its own version of Enigma. The untold story of how a former Australian headmaster and his mostly female team cracked one of Germany's most complex codes, paving the way for the greatest Allied naval victory of World War I. On 11 August 19...14, just days after war had been declared, Australian Captain J.T. Richards boarded the SS Hobart in Port Phillip, Melbourne, suspecting the German merchant vessel fleeing Australia was carrying more than wool and wheat. He was right. After hiding under a bed for six hours and holding a German officer at gunpoint, Richards seized a top-secret naval codebook - the first to be obtained by any Allied force. The fledgling Australian Navy had an opportunity to immediately change the course of the war. But what exactly had they found? Enter the ANZAC codebreakers ... Recruited by savvy top brass, maths whizz and German speaker Frederick Wheatley worked night and day to fathom the basic principles of the code and start tracking the powerful German Pacific Fleet led by the brilliant and dashing Graf Maximilian von Spee. Soon Melbourne was a hub of international Allied intelligence, and the British Royal Navy - following a disastrous naval defeat at Coronel, off Chile, on 1 November - was sending all intercepted messages to Wheatley for decryption. In a dramatic race to neutralise the threat in the Pacific, the Anzac team grappled with the Germans' latest ingenious modifications to the code, finally unlocking all its secrets and providing vital information that set up a pivotal Allied victory in the Falkland Islands. A thrilling, fast-paced and thoroughly modern telling of one of Australia's greatest unknown military triumphs, written by our number-one true-crime writer. Welcome to ANZAC Codebreakers.

              One minute a little boy is playing on his grandmother's lawn, the next minute, he's gone - where? The case of little William Tyrrell is one of Australia's most baffling and heartbreaking mysteries. He was playing hide-and-seek with his four-year-old sister in the garden of his gr...andmother's house in Kendall on the NSW mid-north coast at around 10:30 am on September 12, 2014 when he disappeared, seemingly into thin air. It's a tragic story that has gripped Australia's imagination and the photo of the little boy playfully roaring like a tiger, wearing his Spiderman suit, has become an iconic image. Police have cleared his family of any involvement and believe it's likely he was abducted by an opportunistic stranger. His foster parents, birth parents and grandparents are shattered. Who would take this vivacious, funny, innocent three-year-old boy? How can a child simply disappear? This is the awful and unsettling story of a disappearance, a family tragedy, a driven detective, and a long and immensely frustrating police case. It is also the story of Australia's foster care system, exploring how and why a young child like William ends up in the foster care system. From one of Australia's leading journalists, Caroline Overington, Missing William Tyrrell will explore the baffling mystery of a missing child, a mystery that taps into every parent's fears.
