This Month

  • The Drop-Off by Fiona Harris & Mike McLeish

    Three parents at Baytree Primary are forced to team up and step up after tragedy strikes the school community in The Drop Off. Lizzie is a mother of four and a part-time midwife, Sam is a stay-at-home dad and ex-chef, and Megan is an ex-model single mum with an online business. They are an unlikely trio, with no interest in the school community, but together they step out of their comfort zones and learn about themselves, each other and the school.

  • Little Disasters by Sarah Vaughan

    Liz and Jess have been friends for ten years, ever since they both started a family. But how well do they really know each other?

    When Jess arrives at hospital with a story that doesn’t add up, Liz is the doctor on call. Jess has devoted her life to family and home. But she is holding so many secrets. As the truth begins to emerge, Liz is forced to question everything she thought she knew: about Jess, and about herself.

  • Ghost Species by James Bradley

    When scientist Kate Larkin joins a secretive project to re-engineer the climate by resurrecting extinct species, she finds herself torn between her duties as a scientist and her urge to protect their time-lost creation, Eve, a Neanderthal child.

    As Eve grows to adulthood she and Kate must face the question of who and what she is. Is she natural or artificial? Human or non-human? And perhaps most importantly, as civilisation unravels around them, is Eve the ghost species, or are we?

  • The Secret Life of Shirley Sullivan by Lisa Ireland

    When Shirley Sullivan signs her 83-year-old husband, Frank, out of the Sunset Lodge Nursing Home, she has no intention of bringing him back.

    While Frank may not know who his wife is these days, he knows he wants to go home. Back to the beach where they met in the early 1960s . . .

    So Shirley enacts an elaborate plan to evade the authorities – and their furious daughter, Fiona – to give Frank the holiday he’d always dreamed of. And, in doing so, perhaps Shirley can make amends for a lifelong guilty secret.
