              'Laura Bloom has such a unique talent for modern historical fiction and this time it was a joy to be catapulted back to the 1970s. When I turned the last page I was so sad to say goodbye to her beautifully observed characters. A delight from start to finish!' Liane Moriarty It's ...1977, and warm, bohemian Libby, a stay-at-home mother, genius entertainer and gifted cook, is lonely. When she meets Carol - recently emigrated from London, adrift and in a controlling marriage - and Anna, who loves her career, but not her marriage, and is craving a life that feels always out of reach, the three women form an unexpected bond. Their exes aren't happy about it, though, and neither are their children. Soon the women will be forced into a reckoning that will lay their futures - and their friendships - on the line. With a back drop of inner city grunge, far-out parties and ABBA songs, The Women and The Girls is a funny, questioning and moving novel about love, work, family, friendship and freedom.

              A story of life growing up in Palmerston North in the 1950's, 60's and early 1970's and then to locations further afield in West Australia, Gisborne, Asia and Bay of Islands. Main Street, Victoria Avenue, Roy Street, Russell Street Primary School, Freyberg High School, Massey Uni...versity, Longburn Freezing Works and the PNCC Rubbish Cart, all have their moment. The book provides an insight into growing up in post-war small-town New Zealand, the usual angst of a young man finding his way in life, how to earn a living and build relationships. Working on farms, in the freezing works, flatting while studying at university, working in a construction camp in the West Australian outback and travelling the Hippie Trail across Asia, all form the backdrop to a Palmy Boy's Story.

              This is a book about health science for non-scientists. All over the world today people are eating foods from nutrient starved soils - and all over the world the effects of nutrient hunger are being felt. An almost unheralded 1960s horticultural change put New Zealand on the pa...th of intergenerational sickness by amplifying the effect of the missing micronutrients in our soil. Accessibly written in the style of Bill Bryson's A Short History of Everything, Just Cause and Effect examines evidence-based papers from the silos of medicine, geography, biogeography, agriculture, horticulture and more to reach the conclusion - its not rocket science after all, its Just Cause and Effect.
