            Following the hugely successful Sunday Times Bestseller, Wainwright Golden Beer Book Prize nominee and Costa shortlisted, The Salt Path, Raynor Winn returns with her second brilliant book. This time the narrative explores the difficulties surrounding the return to mainstream life... after a period of homelessness. Recovering self-esteem and trust, in herself and in others, is harder than she expected. Raynor and her husband Moth continue to face his debilitating illness, until an incredible gesture by someone who read The Salt Path changes everything. This book is about readjusting to life after homelessness, but also about recovering trust and self-belief after a traumatic event - feelings that can translate to many episodes in the life of any of us.

            Fourteen: My year of darkness, and the light that followed (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Fourteen is this generation's Holding the Man - a moving coming-of-age memoir about a young man's search for identity and acceptance in the most unforgiving and hostile of places: high school. This is a story about my fourteenth year of life as a gay kid at an all-boys rugby-mad ...Catholic school in regional Queensland. It was a year in which I started to discover who I was, and deeply hated what was revealed. It was a year in which I had my first crush and first devastating heartbreak. It was a year of torment, bullying and betrayal - not just at the hands of my peers, but by adults who were meant to protect me. And it was a year that almost ended tragically. I found solace in writing and my budding journalism; in a close-knit group of friends, all growing up too quickly together; and in the fierce protection of family and a mother's unconditional love. These were moments of light and hilarity that kept me going. As much as Fourteen is a chronicle of the enormous struggle and adversity I endured, and the shocking consequences of it all, it's also a tale of survival. Because I did survive. 'Teenagers should read this book, parents should read this book. Human beings, above all, should read this book.' Rick Morton bestselling author of One Hundred Years of Dirt 'I love this book ... a beautifully written account of a young man struggling with his sexuality, overcoming shocking abuse and finding his way to pride.' Peter FitzSimons, bestselling author 'Shannon is unflinching in recounting the horror, but he is also funny, empathetic and, above all, full of courage.' Bridie Jabour, author of The Way Things Should Be 'A slice of life as experienced quite recently in the lucky country .' The Hon Michael Kirby, AC CMG

            The School of Restoration: The Story of One Ugandan Woman Who Has Given Hope to Hundreds of Female Survivors of War and Violence

            The School of Restoration: The Story of One Ugandan Woman Who Has Given Hope to Hundreds of Female Survivors of War and Violence (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Achan, Alice; Tyndale, Philippa

            Alice Achan was only twelve years old when the Lord's Resistance Army began to terrorise her peaceful village in northern Uganda. She spent five years on the run from the brutalities of the LRA, and then became the caretaker of her brother's young children after their mother died... of HIV/Aids. When her nieces were diagnosed with HIV/Aids Alice knew it was only a matter of time until it killed them, but she looked after them until the end. Their deaths plunged her into depression, which only began to lift after she took a teenage girl under her wing, who'd been kidnapped and raped by the LRA, and now had a baby by her rapists. Spurred on by her friend's plight, Alice established an organisation called CCF Pader to house and nurture young female victims of the sexual violence that was such a brutal trademark of the LRA's campaign. Out of this was to rise The Pader Girl's Academy - nicknamed 'the School of Restoration'. It has now helped hundreds of young girls, many of whom were left with babies and often HIV as a consequence of their rape and sexual enslavement. These were girls, women and children that no one wanted, yet whose humanity and potential Alice recognised. The School of Restoration teaches them skills to help them find work, educates them in the care and rearing of healthy children, and above all gives them back their identity and dignity. It is a profound and meaningful response to the outrage of sexual violence used as a weapon of war, and a beacon of light in the broader campaign of educating girls as a means of fighting poverty and raising living standards across Africa. Written in Alice's powerful yet understated voice, The School of Restoration is a compelling story about hope, forgiveness, redemption, and the human capacity to survive and even thrive against the backdrop of war and chaos.
