From her early childhood, when her inspirational mother would take her on trips along her beloved Ridgeway in a horse-drawn cart, Candida Lycett Green has retained a love of green lanes and tracks, of moving along at horse's pace and casting an eye on the beauty of England through the back door. Her insatiable appetite for exploring unknown territory has led her to travel all over the country by horse for weeks at a time, and often these journeys have come at important turning points in her life. Lyrical yet down-to-earth, framed by a recent 150-mile journey through Yorkshire and Northumberland with a friend, Over the Hills and Far Away dips back into past journeys by horse that also reflect her idyllic childhood in the bohemian Betjeman household, a charmed youth in the Swinging Sixties, a year-long honeymoon journey overland to India, early days at Private Eye, and the ups and downs of thirty-nine years of marriage and motherhood. Her story is made all the more poignant by her recent fight with breast cancer.

Beatrix Potter is one of the world's bestselling, most cherished authors, whose books have enchanted generations of children for over a hundred years. Yet how she achieved this legendary status is just one of several stories of Beatrix Potter's remarkable and unexpected life. Inspired by the twenty-three 'tales', Matthew Dennison takes a selection of quotations from Potter's stories and uses them to explore her multi-faceted life and character: repressed Victorian daughter; thwarted lover; artistic genius; formidable countrywoman. They chart her transformation from a young girl with a love of animals and fairy tales into a bestselling author and canny businesswoman, so deeply unusual for the Victorian era in which she grew up. Embellished with photographs of Potter's life and her own illustrations, this short biography will delight anyone who has been touched by Beatrix Potter's work.

'Over the Hills and Far Away' is the third book in my trilogy of poetry written about the places in Western Australia where I was born and brought up. With poet John Kinsella I have researched the three areas viz. Great Southern, Eastern and finally the Central Wheatbelt including the Avon River catchment. My books 'A Show of Colours' (20 ) and 'Dryandra Dreaming' (20 ) covered the former two areas and 'Over the Hills and Far Away' covers the latter where my maternal grandfather established a wheat and sheep farm at the beginning of last century. Initially I taught in a country high school in the area. The poems are introduced by a brilliant essay written by Dr Tony Hughes D'Aeth of UWA, the acknowledged expert on literature of this area. Some 18 pages of my our illustrations complement the poetry

Harford Logan has spent a lifetime working and winning trials with his Border Collies but ask him what's so special about them and he's likely to look somewhere in the middle distance and eventually reply, "Well, now, that's hard to put into a few words." And that's why he's written this book - an uplifting tale of one man's love of life in the country, the characters he has met along the way and the dog to which he owes it all - the Border Collie. Harford's respect for his dogs shines through as we are introduced to some of his most remarkable collies and he explains what a true handler-dog relationship is all about. He shares his own personal approach to finding and recognising a great Border Collie and then becoming the trainer and handler which a dog of that quality deserves. But you'll find more than just tips and tactics on owning and training a dog in this book. From the first page you're drawn into a richly entertaining world where sheepdog trials, and the countryside they take place in, are the backdrop to some serious fun. Once you've read this book you'll see both Border Collies and the role of the shepherd in a whole new light.

If Hogwarts were more like Woodstock, and Voldemort was your childhood sweetheart turned abusive ex-boyfriend... A new year in Helicon, and Nora Sparrow is determined that this one will be a drama-free. She’s intent on doing nothing but having fun, creating, and enjoying herself.

In fact, Sawyer can’t stop thinking about Lute. He loves Nora, and he doesn’t want to hurt her, but he is torn—shaken by this new attraction.

A powerful debut from a new and exciting talent about the life of Batuk, a 15-year old child prostitute who lives in Mumbai's red-light district. THE BLUE NOTEBOOK, James A. Levine's first novel, tells the haunting story of Batuk, a 15-year old girl whose family, living in the Indian countryside, is in such poverty and debt that she is sold into sexual slavery and lives in a cage on the streets of Mumbai. Batuk is just one of many girls forced into prostitution, but against the odds, she manages to put pen to paper, writing stories of her life that help her transcend and make a certain sense of her daily existence. The novel is powerfully told in Batuk's voice, through the words she writes in her journal. Searing, moving, and surprisingly hopeful, THE BLUE NOTEBOOK explores how people, in the most difficult of circumstances, can use stories to understand and give meaning to their lives.
