            A blockbuster summer read from the Sunday Times-bestselling author and national treasure Celia Imrie: the story of a mother's quest to find her children against all odds, set against the epic backdrop of the sinking of the legendary Titanic Nice, 1912. The very worst thing imagin...able has come true for Marcela: following their separation, her cruel, controlling husband Michael has disappeared with their two young sons. Lolo and Monmon don't understand where their daddy is taking them. First it was London; now they're boarding a massive ship and heading out to sea. Marcela will do everything in her power to find her boys; but when an era-defining disaster strikes, it seems impossible that they will ever be reunited. Orphans of the Storm dives into the waters of the past to unearth a sweeping, epic tale of the sinking of the Titanic that radiates with humanity and hums with life.

            Following her bestselling, critically acclaimed The Silence of the Girls, Pat Barker continues her extraordinary retelling of one of our greatest myths. 'Taut, masterly, wholly absorbing. Still one of the greatest stories ever written. A book that will be read in generations to c...ome' Daily Telegraph on The Silence of the Girls Troy has fallen. The Greeks have won their bitter war. They can return home victors, loaded with their spoils: their stolen gold, stolen weapons, stolen women. All they need is a good wind to lift their sails. But the wind does not come. The gods have been offended - the body of Priam lies desecrated, unburied - and so the victors remain in limbo, camped in the shadow of the city they destroyed, pacing at the edge of an unobliging sea. And, in these empty, restless days, the hierarchies that held them together begin to fray, old feuds resurface and new suspicions fester. Largely unnoticed by her squabbling captors, Briseis remains in the Greek encampment. She forges alliances where she can - with young, dangerously naive Amina, with defiant, aged Hecuba, with Calchus, the disgraced priest - and begins to see the path to a kind of revenge. Briseis has survived the Trojan War, but peacetime may turn out to be even more dangerous...

            **From the highly acclaimed author of The Photographer of the Lost, a BBC Radio 2 Book Club Pick** 'A superb and quietly devastating novel about grief, hope and the horrific aftershocks of war' The Times, Book of the Month They need him to remember. He wants to forget. 1918. In t...he last week of the First World War, a uniformed soldier is arrested in Durham Cathedral. When questioned, it becomes clear he has no memory of who he is or how he came to be there. The soldier is given the name Adam and transferred to a rehabilitation home. His doctor James is determined to recover who this man once was. But Adam doesn't want to remember. Unwilling to relive the trauma of war, Adam has locked his memory away, seemingly for good. When a newspaper publishes a feature about Adam, three women come forward, each claiming that he is someone she lost in the war. But does he believe any of these women? Or is there another family out there waiting for him to come home? Based on true events, When I Come Home Again is a deeply moving and powerful story of a nation's outpouring of grief, and the search for hope in the aftermath of war. Praise for When I Come Home Again: 'Atmospheric descriptions of the Lake District contrast with the horrors of war in this poignant and breathtaking exploration of loss, love and precious memories' My Weekly, Pick of the Month 'When I Come Home Again is a heartbreaking read which reveals the far-reaching tragedies of war. My heart ached for the three women and for Adam... I highly recommend it - and I very much look forward to Caroline Scott's next novel' Anita Frank, author of The Lost Ones 'This beautiful book packs a huge emotional punch' Fabulous 'A powerful story that's achingly moving and most beautifully written.
