              An epic new novel as memorable as the scent of lavender, from one of Australia's most compelling storytellers 'Nothing is wasted, Simone. the love we give never dies.' At fourteen, Simone Fleurier is wrenched from her home on a Provencal lavender farm and sent to work in Marseill...e. Her life there is hard and impoverished, but Simone discovers the music hall and a dream: to one day be a famous dancer and singer. But when war threatens, Simone makes a decision that will lead to great danger - yet ultimately prove that love, just like wild lavender, can grow in the least likely of places ... Belinda Alexandra has created a tale of passion and courage that moves from the backstreets of Marseille to the grand music theatres of Paris, from the countryside of Provence to decadent pre-war Berlin and jazz-age New York. Wild Lavender is a feast for the senses that will live on in the imagination long after the book is closed.

              Paloma Batton is a ballerina who lets little get in the way of her career until she receives a mysterious pair of golden earrings. She begins exploring her own Spanish heritage and becomes fascinated by 'la Rusa', a woman who rose from poverty to become one of the great flamenco ...dancers of modern times before committing suicide. As Paloma begins to unravel the secrets of the past, she discovers more than one person who had good reason for wanting la Rusa dead, including Paloma's own grandmother.

It is the story of two women and the extremes to which they are willing to go for love. It is a story of great passions - and great betrayals - where nothing is quite as it seems.

              Cats and women share many traits: beauty, elegance, sensitivity, affectionate natures, a knack for nurturing and a love of the luxurious. Then there are the qualities cats possess that women long to emulate: fighting fiercely to protect themselves, never saying yes when they mean... no, and being unafraid to claim the best seat in the house. Cats are loyal to those who love them but couldn't give a toss about what others think. They don't suffer self-esteem issues or worry if they're overweight. And then there is their air of mystery, that slinky walk ... oh to be a cat! Belinda Alexandra, writer and ardent cat lover, makes no apology for celebrating the bond between women and their cats. In The Divine Feline, she shares her own experiences, looks back at the relationship between women and cats throughout history and solves behavioural questions in a whimsical and practical way. Viva la cat lady!
