              The most anticipated political memoir of the year. A frank account from National MP Judith Collins of the highs and lows of a political life. From humble beginnings as the daughter of Labour-voting farming parents, Judith Collins has carved a path to almost the very top of politi...cs. The youngest daughter of older parents, Judith Collins grew up in rural Walton, Waikato on a dairy farm. At the age of 10 she entered politics, running for Class President. She won. After a successful career as a lawyer, Collins became the MP for Papakura in 2002, alongside fellow new recruit, John Key. When Key and National won office in 2008, Collins became the Minister for Police, Corrections and Veterans. Funny, forthright and fearless, Collins reveals the truth behind what it is like to survive - and thrive - as a senior female politician for two decades.

              Best friends have become enemies. Lovers have become strangers. And deciding whose side you're on could be the difference between life and death. For Eve and Lemon, discovering the truth about themselves - and each other - was too much for their friendship to take. But with the c...ountry on the brink of a new world war - this time between the BioMaas swarm at CityHive and Daedalus's army at Megopolis - loyalties will be pushed to the brink, unlikely alliances will form and with them, betrayals. But the threat doesn't stop there, because the lifelikes are determined to access the program that will set every robot free, a task requiring both Eve and Ana, the girl she was created to replace. In the end, violent clashes and heartbreaking choices reveal the true heroes ... and they may not be who you think they are.

              Lil O'Brien accidentally outed herself to her parents at the age of 19 when they overhead her talking to a friend about liking girls. Half an hour later she found herself on the side of the road, with instructions to come back and pick up her suitcase the next day. What follows i...s a heartbreaking yet hugely funny story of a young Kiwi girl - the deputy head girl from a posh private school in Christchurch - coming to grips with her sexuality and trying to reconcile who she is against the stark disapproval from her parents. Bit by bit, Lil finds the inner strength to pull herself into an entirely new world. Along the way she gets called out for looking too straight in a gay bar, falls in lust over a knotted football shoelace, and tries to date four women at once, unsuccessfully. Lil's story is an insightful and honest look at how the hell you figure out you're gay, or bi, or whatever, and an essential read for anyone who has had to fight for who they are and what they believe in.

              It's London 1943, and war and dwindling resources are taking their toll on the staff of Partridge Press. The Ministry of Information has published The Battle of Britain, and everyone needs more books to read in the shelters, at home and for the troops. The pressure is on to creat...e new books to distract readers from the grim realities of the war, but Partridge's rising star, Alice Cotton, leaves abruptly and cannot be found. Alice's forced absence is to birth a child and although Alice won't reveal the identity of her baby's father, Alice's mother promises to help her raise the child. Instead, she decides to secretly give away her tiny granddaughter, Eadie. With the police unable to help, Alice's search takes her from the offices of child welfare organisations and newspapers, to dangerous places as she looks for the infamous baby farmers who thrive in the changing conditions that war has created. As Alice looks ever more desperately for her daughter, and the identity of Eadie's father is finally revealed, she is placed in danger and quick action is necessary to help save Alice and Eadie. Finding Eadie is a surprising love story about a woman's search for her stolen child. Inspired by real events during the Second World War, it's also a story about the triumph of three friendships bound by hope, love, secrets and the belief that books have the power to change lives.

              Enid Lindeman stood almost six feet tall, with silver hair and flashing turquoise eyes. The girl from Strathfield in Sydney stopped traffic in Manhattan, silenced gamblers in Monte Carlo and dared walk a pet cheetah through Hyde Park in London on a diamond collar. In early twenti...eth century society where women were expected to be demure and obedient, the grand-daughter of Hunter Valley wine pioneer Henry Lindeman waltzed through life to her own drum beat. She drove an ambulance in World War I and hid escaped Allied pilots behind enemy lines in World War II, played bridge with Somerset Maugham and entertained Hollywood royalty in the world's most expensive private home on the Riviera, allegedly won in a poker game. Enid bedazzled men with her beauty, outlived four husbands - two shipping magnates, a war hero and a larger-than-life Irish Earl - spent two great fortunes and earned the nickname Lady Killmore. From Sydney to New York, London to Paris and Cairo to Kenya, Robert Wainwright tells the fascinating story of a life lived large on the world stage.

              In Tasmania, John Cook is known as: 'The Keeper of the Flame'. John's renowned as one of the last of the kerosene keepers : he spent a good part of his 26-year career in Tasmanian lighthouses tending kerosene, not electrical, lamps. He joined the lighthouse service in 1969, after... a spell in the merchant marine. Far from reviling work on isolated islands such as Tasman and Maatsuyker, Australia's southernmost lighthouse, he discovered that he loved the solitude and delighted in the sense of purpose that light keeping gave him. He did two stints on Tasman, in 1969-71 and 1977, and was the head keeper on Maatsuyker for eight years. Tasman's kerosene light was a pressure lamp fuelled by two big bottles that had to be pumped up to 75 pounds per square inch (about 516 kilopascals): It was the equivalent of pumping up a tyre every 20 minutes, John says. Then you had to wind up the weights - they went down the tower and turned the prism around like a big clockwork. If the weights went all the way to the bottom, the light would stop. The main thing was that 365 nights of the year you sat in that tower, 100 feet up, and you had to stay awake, John says of Tasman. If you fell asleep the light would stop and then you were in trouble. Keepers took watches around the clock, in a system similar to that on a ship. Day watches weren't a chance to slack off: standing orders required the watchkeeper to look seawards at least every half-hour and to log sightings of any vessels, and their course, in the area. But the main thing was there was always maintenance to do, John says. Because Mother Nature was your boss. She'd blow gutters off, that sort of thing - she was always stickin' her bib in, and you were repairin' it. Tasman keepers also ran a herd of up to 500 sheep. They didn't have a freezer, so they'd kill and dress a sheep every fortnight. John supplemented his bulk stores, delivered every three months by the lighthouse supply vessel, with extras brought on the bi-monthly mail bo
