              'Powerful and moving . . . Mary Beth Keane is a writer of extraordinary depth, feeling and wit. Readers will love this book, as I did' Meg Wolitzer, bestselling author of The Female Persuasion _____________ A gripping and compassionate family drama set between neighbours in subur...ban New York Francis Gleeson and Brian Stanhope, two New York cops, live next door to each other outside the city in the 1970s. What happens behind closed doors in both houses - the loneliness of Francis's wife, Lena, and the instability of Brian's wife, Anne - sets the stage for the explosive events to come. When their children, Kate and Peter, form an immediate attachment, so too does a violent event divide the families and the Stanhopes are forced to move away. The children reconnect as adults and, as they fall in love, are forced to reckon with their shared past. _____________ 'Keane takes on one of the most difficult problems in fiction - how to write about human decency . . . a compelling case for compassion over blame, understanding over grudge, and the resilience of hearts that can accept the contradictions of love' Louise Erdrich, National Book Award winning author of The Round House 'Leaves one shaking one's head in frank admiration. A triumph' Matthew Thomas, bestselling author of We Are Not Ourselves

              In the late morning of May 29th 1953, the sun was shining brightly on the roof of the world, a gentle breeze was blowing and two men were there to witness it for the first time ever... Their names were Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay and the roof of the world was Everest. This ...is the breathtaking story of how two very different yet equally determined men battled frost-biting temperatures, tumbling ice rocks, powerful winds and death-defying ridges to reach the top of the world's highest mountain. Join these two unlikely heroes on the most amazing of adventures. This is the retelling of the true stories of their childhoods and the events that led up to their climb towards triumph. Find out how the friendship of a small town beekeeper and former yak-herder turned them into two global heroes, as well as the impact of hundreds of men and women that helped them achieve their goal. But triumphs can be marred with tragedy as not everyone who climbs Everest survives ... With a beautiful introduction by the greatest living explorer of our time, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, this brilliant book combines fresh and contemporary illustrations by Joe Todd-Stanton with Alexandra Stewart's captivating writing. This unique narrative tells the story of how Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made their mark on the world from birth right up to their final days and the impact they've had on Nepal today.
