              A gripping medical drama from the bestselling author of The Silence of Snow. Would you want to know what awaits you? Would you want to be in control of your life . . . and death? What would you do for love? Sooner or later, willingly or unwillingly, he's going to leave you . . . ...The words cut deep. Emily knows Jake is not like his father, he'd never leave her willingly. But if he has inherited the tainted genes of his mother, then Huntington's disease is more than likely to take him away. He may even make the same request his mother made when Jake Heremaia was still a teenager- to end the suffering for good . . . Reviews of her previous novel- 'She has struck on a particular minor key that rings across each page, clear and sharp and quick. It makes you want to listen close. It makes you uncomfortable . . . She writes grief and shock and death, particularly death, with an acute sense of familiarity - an ache. She writes love with a sweet ache, too, from the electric first bite right through to the bittersweet bedding-in. Love, urgent and invigorating, crackles across The Silence of Snow.' - Spinoff 'I cried actual page-blurring tears reading the latest novel by Auckland writer Eileen Merriman. . . . It's a drama that tackles some serious themes.' - Newsroom

              You can't help but wonder about the stories behind the unusual buildings you see around New Zealand - from cute colonial cottages to abandoned industrial buildings or ghost towns. Nicola McCloy went looking to find out ... who lived there? From basic stone cottages in barren-look...ing countryside to pretty coastal villas, romantic churches and small-town taverns, New Zealand is full of buildings whose back stories have been lost over the generations. Jane King's photographs and Nicola McCloy's words weave the facts back together to present gripping stories of these places and their ups and downs over time. The strength of women, often left to fend for their families with little help or support, and the enterprise of early New Zealanders feature in this fascinating book, which you can dip into as you travel the country or read cover to cover from the comfort of your armchair. Find out about places as diverse as the old School of Mines in Thames, Rush Munroe's Ice Cream Garden in Hastings; Couldrey House at Wenderholm, near Auckland; the National Tobacco Company in Napier; Mt Cook Police Barracks in Wellington; Langlois-Eteveneaux House in Akaroa; Donovan's General Store in Okarito; and the Empire Tavern in Dunedin. With beautiful photographs by Jane King, supplemented with historic shots to show how little or how much some of these places have changed.

Audrey Parker's life changes forever when Pea...rl Harbor is attacked on December 7, 1941. Her brother, a talented young Navy pilot, had been stationed there, poised to fulfill their late father's distinguished legacy. Fresh out of nursing school with a passion and a born gift for helping others, both Audrey and her friend Lizzie suddenly find their nation on the brink of war. Driven to do whatever they can to serve, they enlist in the Army and embark on a new adventure as flight nurses. Risking their lives on perilous missions, they join the elite Medical Air Evacuation Transport Squadron and fly into enemy territory almost daily to rescue wounded soldiers from the battlefield. Audrey and Lizzie make enormous sacrifices to save lives alongside an extraordinary group of nurses: Alex, who longs to make a difference in the world; Louise, a bright mind who faced racial prejudice growing up inthe South; Pru, a selfless leader with a heart of gold; and Emma, whose confidence and grit push her to put everything on the line for her patients. Even knowing they will not achieve any rank and will receive little pay for their efforts, the Flying Angels will give their all in the fight for freedom. They serve as bravely and tirelessly as the men they rescue on the front lines, in daring airlifts, and are eternally bound by their loyalty to one another. Danielle Steel presents a sweeping, stunning tribute to these incredibly courageous women, inspiring symbols of bravery and valor.

              The drama of New Zealand's changeable weather. Are the events we are seeing a sign of permanent change? A compelling, informative and highly illustrated series of investigations into the different types of weather events that occur in New Zealand. It covers the likes of cyclones,... heat waves, snow and drought, recounting gripping eye witness accounts and explaining just what's going on behind them all. Popular science writer Gerard Hutching has found a range of people affected by diverse weather events over the decades and tells their stories, bringing these events to life - from the dramatic to the humorous. A dairy farmer and his quad bike are lifted 5 metres into the air by a cyclone then dropped 100 metres away. An embattled farmer forced to buy feed to keep his herd going through prolonged drought creates 'art' with his arrangement of the grain on a hillside. The science behind each type of weather is then explained in simple accessible terms by the scientists from MetService. And behind it all lies the big question - are these events a result of climate change? An introduction by well-known climatologist Professor James Fenwick begins the discussion. Contents- Weather in a Changing Climate; Understanding the Weather; The Ocean and the Weather; Tropical Cyclones; Rain; Wind; Snow; Drought; Heatwaves; Storm Surge; Thunder and Lightning; Hail; Tornadoes; Fog; Frost.

              Four Kiwis on an epic journey to discover the world and themselves. 'When you're hurting and coughing on a steep incline, it's hard to see or even think of the top, but you just gotta push a pedal at a time and keep pushing.' At Auckland Airport, three young Kiwis began an audaci...ous - some would say crazy - journey, huddled together and wiping tears from their eyes. Fourteen months later, they had cycled 23,000 kilometres, from Bali to Buckingham Palace, across more than 20 countries and adventured through some of the most exotic parts of the world. They battled extreme heat, sub-zero temperatures, culture shock and loneliness as they pushed their bodies to their limits. They overcame injury, illness, heartbreak, and, above all, their own fears and self-doubt. It was the time of their lives. Packed with stunning photography by Sean Wakely, The Big Bike Trip is an inspirational account of self-discovery, friendship and turning your dreams into reality.
