              An epic and lyrical tale of love, adventure and gambled fortunes that ranges from the wild cloaked woodlands of Ireland to the colonial Australia of the Victorian Alps from a bestselling Australian author. For fans of Nicole Alexander, Colleen McCullogh, and Fiona McIntosh. 1879:... 'Invisible' Anne Brown fears she'll never escape the harshness and poverty of her life in County Donegal, Ireland. Until, one dramatic Beltane night, her life is changed forever and she leaves to seek her fortune in far-flung Australia. Upon the death of their father, charismatic Will Worthington and his beloved sister Mari are stunned to find he has left all their money and a ticket to the far shores of Australia to an enigmatic painted woman, the mother of his unborn child. It seems their only hope for a brighter future also lies in Australia, where together with Will's best friend, the artist Charlie Turner, they seek their fortunes. Charlie finds love with a mysterious exotic dancer, yet there is trouble on the horizon. His new friends up in the Victorian Alps might be teaching him to run with the wild horses and find his talent with a brush at last, but life in a bushranger gang is a dangerous game. As Charlie struggles to break free from his fate, all four are left with impossible choices as fortunes waver between life and death, loyalty and the heart.

              The Deceptions

              'At what cost can a survivor of hell rebuild a seemingly normal life? The Deceptions is a gripping and tragic story for our times.' - Leah Kaminsky, author of The Hollow Bones In 1943, a young woman is taken to a Jewish ghetto outside Prague where one of the guards - a Czech gend...arme - is quickly drawn to her. Believing he will offer her protection, Hana reluctantly accepts Karel's advances only to find herself alone and abandoned in Auschwitz. Decades later, Karel carries his regrets to Sydney where he and his family try to make a new life for themselves. Despite her devotion to the family, Karel's wife is a troubled woman, haunted by a secret that will not leave her as the consequences of her actions as a young woman continue to reverberate both within her family and further afield. Meanwhile, the couple's daughter is still reeling from her husband's infidelities as, unbeknownst to any of them, their cherished granddaughter becomes more and more entangled with her married boss. Outwardly harmonious, this is a fractured family whose lives are built on foundations of lies and deceptions - foundations that threaten to completely collapse as old transgressions re-emerge in the lead up to a long-awaited family wedding. Inspired by a true story of wartime betrayal, The Deceptions is a searing, compassionate tale of love and regret within a family whose secrets might better be left alone. 'The Deceptions is a stunning example of the way fiction tells war better than any other form - I could taste its madness, its horror. Saw from the outside, its utter absurdity. For days after reading the novel I found myself wrestling with the price of betrayal, and the value of truth.' - Sofie Laguna, winner of the Miles Franklin Literary Award

              Chance is a black-and-white thinker until she realises that sometimes there are shades of grey. Chance is in Year 7 and thinks she has it all - a loving mother, dog Tiges, best friend and almost-sister next door. But when a reality TV team makes over her house, she discovers news...paper cuttings from the past that cause her to question the world as she knows it and everyone in it. Then she finds herself caught between two realities, identities and worlds. Face-to-face with the truth, Chance has a very difficult decision to make, which almost splits her in two. This powerful story explores what is true and what is fake in today's world. And while Chance is all about the truth, she ponders whether "Maybe being truthful was really just a big lie."

              The year is 1936 and the new King Edward VIII wishes to marry divorcee and suspected German agent, Wallis Simpson. The 'red boxes', which are the official and often top-secret material the king must read and sign are neglected for weeks. Some have even been seen in Berlin. German...y is rearming with 300,000 fighter planes per year. Can Britain and its empire survive? Or can a woman change the course of history? Can Miss Lily's most surprisingly successful student, Australian cattle empress Sophie Higgs, now the widowed Countess of Shillings, seduce 'David', not just from marriage with Simpson, but from irresponsibility, extravagance, and the fantasy of being a fascist king? And what of the man who loves Sophie, war-damaged doctor, Daniel Greenman, and Sophie's two children, Miss Lily, and even her late husband Nigel, who - just possibly - might not be dead? And what will Hannelore, Princesszin von Arneburg choose, torn between the country she loves and the blind child she adores, now deemed 'Lebensunwertes Leben ... unworthy of life' by Adolf Hitler's new law? If a man can sacrifice his life for his country and all he loves, should a woman hesitate to sacrifice her honour? Based on new correspondence found in the German archives, Lilies, Lies and Love is entirely a work of fiction. Or is it?

              Miss Kaye works at The Institute. A place for the damaged, the dangerous, the not-quite rights. Everyone had different strategies to deal with those who lived there. Some barked orders. Some negotiated tirelessly. Miss Kaye found that simply being herself was mostly the right thi...ng to do. She would try not to smile, but her eyes did. Susie was seven, and already she knew she'd had her fill of character building. She'd lie between her Holly Hobby sheets thinking how slowly birthdays come around, but how quickly change happens. One minute her Dad was saying that the family needed to move back to the city and then, Shazam, they were there. Her mum didn't move to the new house with them. And she hated going to her mother's flat. She never knew who her mum would be. Or who would be there. When their paths connect, Miss Kaye and Susie will know that character building is often code for trauma and surviving requires patience. An unforgettable story of loneliness, isolation and finding you way. Heart-wrenching, wise and wryly funny, this novel will make you kinder to those who are lost.

              A husband and wife living on a severely drought-afflicted property take a brief break, only to find that their relationship is parched, too. After enduring months of extreme draught on their modest freehold, farming couple Dimple and Ruthie face uncertain times on more than one f...ront. Ruthie receives the news every woman dreads. Meanwhile, a wealthy landowner, Wally Oliver, appears on the local radio station, warning small farmers like Dimple and Ruthie that they are doomed, that the sooner they leave the land to large operators like him, the better. Bracing for a fight on all fronts, the couple decide to take a road trip to confront Oliver. Along the way, not only is their resolve tested, but their relationship as well. Desperate not to dwell on the past but to face up to the future, Dimple and Ruthie make a crucial decision they soon regret. And when the storm clouds finally roll in across the land they love, there's more than the rain to contend with. Told with enormous heart, Small Mercies is a tender love story. It is a story of a couple who feel they must change to endure, and of the land that is as important as their presence on it.
