              The Pines, an outer Melbourne suburb down on its luck. A country in the grip of recession. Experienced collector Ron senses new possibilities: swift evictions provide hard-rubbish to scour and garage-sales have doubled. There's only one problem: since losing his wife, Ron has str...uggled to navigate the suburbs alone. Plus, his deteriorating health slows him down. This all changes through a chance meeting with Joseph, a troubled, withdrawn and unemployed 19-year old who knows nothing about antiques. As Joseph comes to understand and appreciate Ron's world of eccentric bargain hunters, and hopefulness, his ability to navigate a history of family violence and to see a future for himself grows. Both come to share the wild dream of finding a rare bargain such as an original Frederick McCubbin painting and making their fortune. So begins an exhilarating adventure and an unlikely and beautiful friendship. Set against the background of the early 1990s, Chasing the McCubbin is funny and sad in equal measure. A story of loneliness and the ageless desire for belonging, it will be the most heartbreaking yet feel-good novel you will read this year. 'Truly fine writing with a great sense of characters and place, sympathetic and heartfelt without being sentimental, Scaunich pulls us into a fascinating world of low stakes and petty rivalries.' - Graeme Simsion 'Authentic, subtle, evocative and alive.' - Kate Ryan

              After getting fired from her safe job, wannabe writer Jane discovers what a wide world of other Janes there are. Ego-surfing with her best friend Christian gives her THE IDEA: the book she was born to write. The next step? An epic road trip. With a skimpy plan and an even skinnie...r budget, they blaze from California to New York, meeting Jane Waldens as they quest for the perfect angle, the just-so interview question. The business Jane in Vegas, the seemingly happy Mom Jane in Nebraska, the tough-as-nails Jane. But wait. Is this becoming a cliche? All surface and no substance? As Jane and Christian realize they are wading into the ever-deepening waters of the big idea, they realize there's no turning back. Soon, they make a series of discoveries that lead them both through the modern looking glass, crashing into something they never saw coming. A quirky adventure, Seven Ways To Jane's influences come from Silver Linings Playbook, The Storied Life of AJ Fikry and all the way back to Breakfast at Tiffany's. This is the large print edition of Seven Ways To Jane, with a larger font / typeface for easier reading.

              'A beguiling whirlwind of love and obsession' Elle _______________________________________________ It is summer, 1956, when fifteen-year-old Bridget first meets Isabella. In their conservative Connecticut town, Isabella is a breath of fresh air. She is worldly, alluring and braze...n: an enigma. When they receive an offer to study at the Academy in Italy, Bridget is thrilled. This is her ticket to Europe and - better still - a chance to spend nine whole months with her glamorous and unpredictable best friend. There, lodged in a convent of nuns who have taken a vow of silence, the two girls move towards a passionate but fragile intimacy. As the year rolls on, Bridget grows increasingly fearful that she will lose Isabella's affections - and the more desperate she gets, the greater the lengths she will go to keep her. Belladonna is a hypnotizing coming-of age story set against the stunning and evocative backdrop of rural Northern Italy. Anbara Salam tells a story of friendship and obsession, desire and betrayal, and the lies we tell in order to belong. ______________________________________________ 'An enthralling tale of race, secrets and the desire to belong' i 'Lush and languid, this sultry coming-of-age tale captures a fractured friendship and the yearnings of girlhood' Daily Mail 'Raw and tender . . . this searingly honest coming of age story will steal your heart' Sunday Mirror 'The Virgin Suicides meets Patricia Highsmith's The Talented Mr Ripley, this unputdownable and lush novel had me entranced' Sharlene Teo, author of Ponti

              The book starts ten thousand years ago a Mongolian tribe journeyed a terribly long way to North America, through Eurasia and the Bering Strait, and settled land stretching from Connecticut to Northeast Ohio, land eventually known as the Western Reserve Range. This homogeneous Mon...gol tribe, or the Mound Builders-as their modern historical name reflects-constructed pyramid-like earthy mounds for religious rituals, and for military protection from auburn-faced invaders from South America, thus forming in part the murky beginnings of the Native American Indian. When American Steel and Sheet & Tube closed for good. Overnight, Warrentown became an industrial graveyard of broken steel mills, wasting along the polluted, oily banks of the salty-marsh Mahoning River. Your only chance? Move away from the steel valley. And wasn't it just another corrupted city in the heart of the rust belt? It is here, ten years on, where the story begins.

              Senior Agent CASEY COLLINS, a smart, ambitious, and relentless lead female police detective must stop a pair of serial rapists and killers in Miami, Florida, unearthing a scandal that ricochets from the police force to her own abusive family, and all the way to Governor's mansion.... It starts with a bang in the Prologue, when one of the serial rapists / killers is killed by a mysterious shooter disguised as a police officer. The other serial rapist / killer is wounded in the shootout and also wounds the shooter. The suspense builds as Casey pursues the serial rape and murder suspects, and then the shooter. Casey, a former teenage runaway and young widow, climbed and fought hard to reach her prestigious position in law enforcement. When a series of rapes and homicides plague Florida unabated, mounting clues point to an assailant, or pair of assailants, who may be cops. Casey suspects they may be hiding behind the universal Police Code of Silence, notoriously known as the Blue Curtain, and puts her life and reputation on the line to begin her investigation. She is outraged that the perpetrators are her brothers in blue, her brothers in blood! Her partner, Agent DARREN TURNER, with whom she trusts her life on a daily basis, is a bit of playboy, and has the hots for local news anchor, television star TINA EVANSTON, a stunning, ambitious, sexy bleached blonde, who has made in-depth coverage of the serial rapes and killings, her obsession on the nightly news. She uses her feminine charms to squeeze the latest tips out of Darren for her exclusive Breaking News updates. Casey and Darren catch a break when the pair of perpetrators are captured on grainy, blurry, antiquated security footage leaving a gas station in Southwest Florida. Although their faces aren't clear, they're indeed dressed as police officers and drive away in a police cruiser. What Darren doesn't know is that, more than their police colors, their mannerisms and movements set off traumatic childhood memories fo
