              It's February 1856 and Haworth is still in the grip of a freezing winter. Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte are rather losing interest in detecting, until they hear of a shocking discovery. The bones of a small child have been found interred within the walls of a local moor-top ho...use, Scar Top Hall, home to the scandalous and brutish Bradshaw family. When the sisters set off to find out more, they are confronted with an increasingly complex and sinister case, which leads them into the dark world of workhouses and poor schools, and onto the trail of other lost, and likely murdered children. After another local boy goes missing, Charlotte, Emily and Anne vow to find him before it's too late. But in order to do so, they must face their most despicable and wicked adversary yet - one that would not hesitate to cause them the gravest of harm. . . Praise for Bella Ellis and the series: 'A delight' The Wall Street Journal 'Such a brilliant writer' Jill Mansell 'Clever and captivating' Milly Johnson 'A joy from start to finish' Alex Marwood 'Fun, charming and intriguing' Araminta Hall 'An incredible book - Bella Ellis is a very special talent' Angela Clarke 'Elegant, witty and compulsively readable - I think the Bronte sisters would have been delighted' Rosie Walsh

              When a young British man asks his German grandfather what it was like to fight on the wrong side of the war, the question is initially met with irritation and silence. But after the old man's death, a long letter to his grandson is found among his things. That letter is this book.... In it, he relates the experiences of an unlikely few days on the Eastern Front - at a moment when he knows not only that Germany is going to lose the war, but that it deserves to. He writes about his everyday experience amid horror, confusion and great bravery, and he asks himself what responsibility he bears for the circumstances he found himself in. As he tries to find an answer he can live with, we hear from his grandson what kind of man he became in the seventy years after the war. We Germans is a fundamentally human novel that grapples with the most profound of questions about guilt, shame and responsibility - questions that remain as live today as they have always been.

              WINNER of the Miles Franklin Literary Award 2017 WINNER of the Dorothy Hewett Award for an Unpublished Manuscript WINNER of the Colin Roderick Award 2017 SHORTLISTED for the Prime Minister's Award for Fiction Professor Frederick Lothian, retired engineer, world expert on concrete... and connoisseur of modernist design, has quarantined himself from life by moving to a retirement village. His wife, Martha, is dead and his two adult children are lost to him in their own ways. Surrounded and obstructed by the debris of his life - objects he has collected over many years and tells himself he is keeping for his daughter - he is determined to be miserable, but is tired of his existence and of the life he has chosen. When a series of unfortunate incidents forces him and his sharp-eyed neighbour, Jan, together, Frederick Lothian has the chance to realise the damage done by the accumulation of a lifetime's secrets and lies, and to comprehend his own shortcomings. Can he finally build something meaningful for the ones he loves? 'In Extinctions, a compassionate and unapologetically intelligent novel, Josephine Wilson explores ageing, adoption, grief and remorse, empathy and self-centredness...The novel is also a meditation on survival: on what people carry, on how they cope, and on why they might, after so much putting their head in the sand, come to the decision to engage, and even change. ' - The 2017 Miles Franklin Literary Award Judges Comments 'Whip smart, full of unexpected moves and a wonderful cast of characters...a powerful and memorable read.' - Karen Joy Fowler 'Wilson is never at a loss for words. She wields the English language sometimes like a surgical instrument, sometimes like a weapon, but always with complete mastery of allusion and resonance.' - Gillian Dooley, Australian Book Review 'Josephine Wilson's paragraphs and sentences have a rounded shape, in contrast to the currently fashionable way of writing, which tends to jagged, broken sentences.

              Eleven-year-old Sarah is a watcher. She sees the way the smoke rises from the sulphide works to wreath the little Australian town of Boolaroo; she watches Dad, when he's not being a policeman, breaking horses in the back paddock behind the house. Sarah Sweet has learnt to observe..., to be quiet, to avoid notice, filled with a rage so intense it threatens to overwhelm her. The Breaking is the story of a family tainted by its force, of a young life haunted by it, but also of the strength it gives to fight back. In its evocation of the parched landscape of rural Australia, the strange cadences of the language and the filmic vividness of its characters, The Breaking is a unique, lyrical testament to the power of the human spirit. The Breaking is a book of opposites: rural heat, city rain; male power and female powerlessness; paternal tenderness and a lover's violence; silences and singing. This strong first novel is remarkable for its depiction of a family drama played out in an arid small town, with the local lock-up in the backyard, and Sarah Sweet's slow education in love and change, courtesy of a glowing, nail-biting taxi driver. Scottish Writer of the Year Judging Committee Powerful and accomplished... Heyman reveals her pedigree as a playwright and poet in stunning language and original imagery...profoundly moving. - The Scotsman Haunting ... compelling ... the magnetism of a violent man is made palpable. - The Times Fizzes with childhood energy, frustration and hilarity... Heyman's words and style leap at you with real punch. - Scotsman Weekend Astounding ... a writer of immense promise. - Sunday Tribune A pleasure... this is a novel which never betrays its promise. The rawness of the emotion and the beauty of its conveyance into words is a potent combination which will not easily be forgotton. - Australian Book Review Gripping... Heyman's poetic style adds an extra dimension to this gripping tale. - Belfast Telegraph

              Between managing a bustling beauty salon, hectic volunteer commitments and the lion's share of parenting two-year-old Claudia, Angie McIntyre barely has time to turn around. And with each passing month, she feels her relationship with fly-in, fly-out boyfriend Rob Jones slipping ...through her fingers. When Rob faces retrenchment, and the most fabulous fixer-upper comes onto the market, Angie knows this derelict weatherboard cottage will be the perfect project to draw their little family together. There's just one catch; the 200-acre property is right next door to Rob's parents in south-west Victoria. It doesn't take long for rising tensions to set a wedge between the hard-working couple. Instead of drawing them closer together, Angie and Rob have to find out the hard way whether their grand design will be the very thing that tears them apart. Sparkling rural fiction, straight from the heart. 'Wildflower Ridge is beautifully written with strong characters and a true depiction of life on a farm with all its trials, tribulations... love, family and laughter. I loved this book and didn't want it to end' Christine, Beauty & Lace
