              There are moments in history that connect us and define a country. In our hearts and minds, some moments rely on us to hold onto a dream, face tough challenges, and put in a great deal of effort. Big dreams can take generations. It can also take six million hand-driven rivets and... 53,000 tonnes of steel. The Day We Built the Bridge celebrates our connection with one another, and declares that despite the greatest of challenges, together we can make history.

              A spine-chilling mystery and contemporary love story, Beneath the Mother Tree plays out in a unique and wild Australian setting, interweaving Indigenous history and Irish mythology. On a small island, something dark has disturbed the peace. Grappa believes it's the Far Darocha, a... mythical creature whose mournful music lures you down to a black abyss. Ayla, his granddaughter, has other ideas, especially once she meets the mysterious flute player she heard on the beach. Riley and his mother Marlise move to the island to escape their grief. But when the community is beset by a series of strange deaths, Marlise and her mosquito obsession quickly garner the ire of the locals. Can Riley and Ayla uncover the mystery at the heart of the island's darkness before it's too late? Beneath the Mother Tree is a compelling portrait of how our dark history and dreaming landscape can make extraordinary things of ordinary lives. Wrought with sensuousness and lyricism, D.M. Cameron's debut novel is a thrilling journey, rhythmically fierce and eagerly awaited.

              Age range 9+ 1901. The slide clunks into the lantern, and Phantoms come alive on the wall. The father-and-son Magic Lantern team of Bert and Tom Eliot are masters of The Art of the Story. The only problem is that they are missing a wife and mother. Then one morning eleven-year-ol...d Tom wakes to find his father missing, too. The Lanternist's apprentice is thrown out of home, forced to work for the arch-criminal Jimmy Sacks, arrested and imprisoned. Will he ever be able to escape with his new friend Max and make the long, flea-bitten, rat-infested journey to Sydney in search of his parents? The Lanternist is a story about stories, and how they show us a way through life, despite callous landladies, corrupt officials, criminal companions and the problems with living in incinerators. But mostly, it is about searching, and making your own endings. Celebrated author Stephen Orr's first foray into young adult literature is a thrilling historical adventure.

              In an all-too-recognisable Melbourne of the near future, the lives of three very different women become intertwined. Emily is a researcher at the University, carrying out experiments on overcrowding in rats. Free-spirited Amala is an international student feeling the strong tug o...f home. Roz is a struggling photographer who has visions of the future, although she tries her best to ignore them. When Roz foresees a terrible tragedy, she is finally driven to act. But can she turn things around once a direction has already been set? As events rapidly escalate, all three women will be pushed to their limits and forced to revisit the choices they have made. Dark and compelling, Random Acts of Unkindness is a novel about kindness and cruelty. Above all, it explores the importance of human connection in an increasingly fragmented world. 'Vivid, exciting and wholly original, Mandoki weaves a tale of obsession, compassion and choosing how to live with each other.' - Margaret Bearman
