            From the author of the best-selling Matilda Saga comes a new series that takes us back to the birth of our nation. The soldiers called her 'The Angel of Waterloo'. This esteemed surgeon's daughter who was born on a battlefield, lost her mother on a battlefield, and then married a...nd was widowed on the battlefield that was Waterloo, where Henrietta Bartlett worked alongside her father on that fateful day in June 1815. But after the carnage of war, 'Hen' dreams of peace, and her own home, and a society that would allow a woman to practice medicine. The new and faraway colony of New South Wales seems a paradise, where even convicts have a chance of a good life and the indigenous women are eager to teach Hen their vast knowledge of medical lore. But as the fallout of Europe's wars casts its dark shadows in the colony, Hen has to work hard to find her place in this new country. From the author of the best-selling Matilda Saga, comes a story about one young girl's journey from the blood-soaked hell that was the Battle of Waterloo to finding her place in the country around Gibber's Creek. The place where Matilda and her father settled in 1894 and sparked a series that is a love song to our land, told by the strong and inspiring women who forged a nation. PRAISE FOR JACKIE FRENCH'S MATILDA SAGA 'An engrossing mystery story, an ode to strong women, and a moving exploration of the private wounds we carry ... a must for your summer reading list' - Better Reading 'The perfect read for anyone who loves immersing themselves in Australian fiction. Gripping, emotional and moving, ... a great book to curl up with' - New Idea 'Highly recommended ... this was a complete binge, read in one night because it was just too good and too gripping to put down ... a cracking story filled with rich characters both old and new and imbued with all that we hold dear about Australian love of country and mateship' - ReadPlus

            By Weaver, Pam

            An uplifting short story following on from Amy's Wartime Christmas, Amy's Seaside Secret is an engaging read, exclusive to eBook from Pam Weaver, author of Always in My Heart. Worthing, 1944. Police Woman Amy Hobbs has been patrolling the streets of the seaside town for six month...s, upholding the law for its residents. But as the only female officer in the constabulary, dealing with old-fashioned attitudes from senior officers is a daily battle. When a call comes in from local fishermen who have spotted a woman's body floating in the River Rife, Amy accompanies Sergeant Goble to investigate. With an opportunity to prove she's just as good an officer as the men, Amy launches into the case to solve the mystery and apprehend the perpetrator. Meanwhile, a spate of thefts have been reported across the town with everything from coal and milk, to food and bikes, mysteriously disappearing. A strange tramp has been spotted by locals and it seems he may be connected to the stolen items. But with a possible murder to solve, a visit from her sister and an imminent pancake race to train for on the upcoming Shrove Tuesday, Amy has her hands more than full. What's for certain is that Amy will have to dig deep if she is determined to make a real difference to the coastal town she now calls home . . .

            With My Back to the World (EPUB ebook)

            By Cooper, Sally

            A filmmaker hastily prepares for the arrival of her adopted daughter from earthquake-ravaged Haiti. A visual artist yearns to rediscover the inspiration she'd had before her mental breakdown. A black woman sits in a log cabin with the body of her dead husband, freshly delivered b...y his white coworkers. In these interconnected stories, Sally Cooper explores motherhood, creativity, race and love through the lens of a day in the life of each of these three women - Rudie in Hamilton in 2010, Agnes in New Mexico in 1974, Ellen near Muskoka in 1870 - women separated by decades yet linked in ways they will never know. As these stories begin to weave together like a communal tapestry, they explore what it means to be a woman, a mother and an artist, and how this meaning changes over time. Evocative and introspective, With My Back to the World is about how different women find faith in themselves under extraordinary circumstances.

            August 1945. As Stefano, an Italian POW, heads toward home across war-ravaged Germany, he encounters a young child beside his dead mother. Unable to leave him to an unknown fate, Stefano takes the boy with him, finding refuge in a seemingly abandoned house in a secluded woodland.... But the house is far from vacant. Stefano wakes at the arrival of its owner, Erich, a former German soldier, who invites the travellers to stay until they can find safe passage home. Stefano cautiously agrees, intrigued by the disarming German, his reclusive neighbour Rosalind, and her traumatised husband, Georg. Stefano is also drawn to Monique, the girl in a photograph on Rosalind's wall, who went missing during the war. But when he discovers letters written by Monique, a darker truth emerges. This place of refuge could be one of reckoning, and the secrets of the past might prevent the travellers from ever getting home.
