              My heart is less than 1% of my body, it weighs hardly anything; it's only a tiny piece of me, yet it's the part Helen finds most interesting. . .Once it was inside her body, a tiny piece of the son she gave birth to. Now her boy is gone and his heart is keeping me alive. Born wit...h a heart defect, Vivienne Clark's life was saved by a transplant. Now a journalist, she doesn't allow herself to think about the donor, the boy who died so she could live; she can't bear to. Then she meets his mother, Helen, who wants something in return for Vivi's second-heart heart: her help to find all the other people who have tiny pieces of her son. She needs to meet them, to speak to them, in order to make sense of her own loss - to be sure that they deserve the precious gifts they were given. Reluctantly drawn into Helen's mission, Vivi agrees to trace the other recipients. One by one she brings together a small group of strangers, united by a single experience. As their lives begin to intertwine - growing close, becoming friends, enemies, even lovers - Vivi finds herself at the centre of a new kind of family, a tiny little piece of a whole. And through the fresh joys, and deep sadness, which all their stories bring, Vivi discovers that she might just be braver than she ever imagined...

              Weaving. Witchcraft. Herbalism. The spellbinding story of a mysterious country house sheltering a centuries-old secret by the bestselling author of The Botanist's Daughter Australian history teacher Thea Rust doesn't believe in ghosts, but when she arrives at an exclusive boardin...g school in 2019, together with the first intake of girls in its 150-year history, a series of puzzling events in Silk House, where the girls live, causes her to question her convictions. She sets out to discover the truth, no matter the cost. In the late 1700s, Rowan Caswell leaves her village to work in the home of an English silk merchant. Her talent for herbs and healing soon attracts attention and she is tasked with both bringing new life into the world as well as helping to end it. Meanwhile, in London, Mary-Louise Stephenson lives amid the clatter of the weaving trade and dreams of being a silk designer, a job that is the domain of men. When she arrives in the market town of Oxleigh, bringing with her a length of fabric woven with a pattern of deadly plants, she unwittingly sets in motion a catastrophe that will affect the lives of all those who dwell in the silk merchant's house. Intoxicating, haunting and inspired by the author's background, The Silk House is the exceptional new gothic mystery by Kayte Nunn. Praise for Kayte Nunn: 'A sensitive, atmospheric and often heartbreaking story told with real mastery' WHO Weekly 'Two incredibly likeable, headstrong heroines . . . watching them flourish is captivating. With these dynamic women at the helm, Kayte weaves a clever tale of plant treachery involving exotic and perilous encounters in Chile. Compelling storytelling' The Australian Women's Weekly 'I loved The Botanist's Daughter. I was transported to the 1880s and Chile, to contemporary Sydney and Kew. A gripping read' JOY RHOADES 'The characters are all vivid and interesting, and there's a dash of romance and a splash of intrigue' KATE FORSYTH
