              John Chambers was born in 1966 and brought up on Belfast's notorious Loyalist Glencairn estate. From an early age he witnessed violence, hatred and horror as Northern Ireland tore itself apart in civil strife. He thought he knew which side he was on, but although raised as a Loya...list, he was hiding a troubling secret - the fact that his disappeared mother was 'the enemy' - a Roman Catholic. In this book, John explores the dark heart of Northern Irish politics and sectarianism in the 1970s and 1980s, describing his childhood and teenage journey through ultra-Loyalism with searing honesty and native Belfast wit, until, at the age of twenty-nine, a miraculous turn of events reunited John with his mother after almost thirty years apart.

              They were the unsung heroines of World War II; the wives and mothers and teenage girls who clocked in daily to work in vast munitions factories, helping to make explosives, bullets, shells, bombs and war machines that would ensure victory. It was dangerous, dirty and exhausting w...ork. They worked round the clock, often exposed to toxic, lethal chemicals. A factory accident could mean blindness, loss of limb - or worse. Many went home with acid burns, yellow skin or damaged hair, others were forced to leave their loved ones and move to live with strangers in unfamiliar surroundings. Frequently, their male bosses were coarse and unsympathetic. Yet this hidden army of nearly two million women toiled on regardless through the hardest years of the war, cheerfully ignoring the dangers and the exhaustion, as bombing, rationing and the heartbreak of loss or separation took their toll on everyone in the country. Here, in their own words, are the vivid wartime memories of the 'secret army' of female munitions workers, whose resilience and sheer grit in the face of danger has only started to emerge.

              Strongest advocate, best friend, expert, cheerleader and chief photographer . . . Before, during and after labour the role of a midwife is second to none. The Secret Midwife reveals the highs and lows on the frontline of the maternity unit, from the mother that tries to give hers...elf a DIY caesarean to the baby born into witness protection, and from surprise infants that arrive down toilets to ones that turn up in the lift. But there is a problem; the system which is supposed to support the midwives and the women they care for is starting to crumble. Short-staffed, over worked and underappreciated - these crippling conditions are taking their toll on the dedicated staff doing their utmost to uphold our National Health Service, and the consequences are very serious indeed.

              Burying a child is every parent's nightmare. But Marie McCourt has spent 31 years yearning to do just that. On February 9th, 1988, her 22-year-old daughter, Helen, left her office in Liverpool city centre, and began her usual commute home. But she was never seen again... Within d...ays, local pub landlord, Ian Simms was identified as her murderer; and despite Helen's body not being found, a mass of incontrovertible DNA and witness evidence at his trial twelve months later resulted in a life sentence. But Simms has refused to disclose the whereabouts of Helen's body, meaning Marie and her family have never been able to get closure. They've never had a grave at which they can pay their respects. Marie has fought for the last 30 years to find her daughter's body and to stop other families facing the same horrifying fate, recently winning the Ministry of Justice's approval for Helen's Law , characterised by the slogan: No Body No Parole , to be enacted. This is the incredible story of the crushing devastation of a mother from the loss of her daughter, a callous murderer and the indomitable strength of a woman, who would not be bowed by an outdated law.
