THE LATE MR. COLLINS: A Pride and Prejudice sequel

ISBN: 978-1909300330


There have been other sequels during the past few years to Austen's masterly Pride and Prejudice, but few have the pacy and truly entertaining plot that this one enjoys. After the death in unexplained circumstances of the unlovable Mr Collins, Elizabeth and Darcy call in a 19th century Miss Marples figure to help solve the mystery. As the story unfolds we revisit old favourites: the scatty Mrs Bennett and the dry-as-a-stick wit of Mr Bennett (who is a chief suspect), but we also discover far more about the backgrounds of original characters like Lady Catherine de Bourgh in such an entertaining and novel way that one could imagine Austen thinking 'I wish I'd thought of that!'

Different Wings is a tale of a clandestine friendship between two spirited girls, one African, one English, in colonial times. As they explore the challenges of their environment and their mythologies, they experience the contrasts between attitudes to birth, death, danger and old age, which seem to wholly favour the indigenous culture. The theme takes a Swahili proverb: Kila ndege huruka na mibao yake – every bird flies with its own wings and it was born from deep affection and respect for desturi. And what of their dreams for the future. Click on the below link for further details about Jennifer's's book, and to buy a copy.

Time reveals that every crime has its consequences, however unexpected.

Wealthy, privileged Sophie Cooke, the eldest daughter of a successful English businessman in St Petersburg, has her life torn apart by historic changes in Russia. In the early 1900s, enjoying a luxurious existence and a social life of parties and balls, Sophie becomes engaged to the love of her life; a young doctor, Anatoly Andropov. The outbreak of the Great War means that their marriage is earlier than planned and Tolya goes to serve in a field hospital on the eastern front. Sophie, bored and lonely at home, leaves to join him as a nurse. Later she gives birth to a baby boy and, when expecting her second child, conditions compel her to return to her home city, now named Petrograd. Petrograd becomes the epicentre of the greatest upheaval in Russian history where the Tsar is overthrown and socialist revolutionaries take over the government. During the months and years that follow, the socialist revolution and a bitter Civil War play out amidst uncertainty, lethal danger and brutal violence. Sophie’s family flee to England, to safety, but even that escape is marked with tragedy. Sophie remains in Petrograd with her children to wait Tolya’s return. Conditions in the city deteriorate, threatening her little family with starvation and disease. Sophie endures endless struggles at home and at work in a state hospital with the fate of her husband always on her mind. Where is he? Is he even alive? Serious illness and the fragile health of her children drive her to join her family in England where she hears the worst news possible which forces her to return alone to Russia to embark on a dangerous quest. This sweeping novel of love and loss will transport the reader from tsarist Russia in 1913, through the Great War, the Russian Revolution and Civil War to 1922, finally portraying the life of Russian émigrés in England.

MURDERS IN THE BLITZ: an omnibus of three murder mystery novellas.
By Julia Underwood - contributor to WAR.
ISBN: 978-1517068028


1. A Murder of Account: Eve Duncan’s uneventful life is thrown into turmoil when, one wet evening in September 1940, the body of a young woman is discovered in a street near Shepherd’s Bush Green. Eve is co-opted into the short-staffed local police force and sets out to discover the killer. Her best friend and would-be assistant, Charlie Spalding, believes she is not up to the task. Her friends and family fear for her safety. But Inspector Reed is certain that she is more than capable of achieving her end. Eve’s determination to solve the mystery, and to prove that the girl’s death was not an unimportant matter, leads her into danger. She is on a mission to bring the culprit to justice. The onset of the Blitz makes the task even more difficult, but Eve’s persistence ultimately secures her success. 2. A Murder Close to Home: Malcolm Miller, the milkman, is missing. Eve Duncan, an occasional wartime investigator for the Shepherds Bush police, is sent to try and find out what has happened to him. She soon discovers that Malcolm was not as popular as it appears. Then his body is found on a bombsite. Another murder follows and then an attack on a young girl. Eve is convinced that the three crimes are linked, but who could it have been, and why? 3. A Murder in the Country: Eve Duncan, the red-headed amateur detective, had been looking forward to a break in the countryside away from the bombing and mayhem of London. Her sister Grace needed her help to look after the five evacuee children in her care. The peace of the country was disturbed by the discovery of a body in the woods. Later a bloody murder happens that Eve is convinced is connected to the first in spite of official resistance to the idea. Is Eve right? And if she is, who in this quiet backwater could have committed the crimes?

THE IMPOSSIBLE FIVE: In Search of South Africa's Most Elusive Mammals.
By Justin Fox - contributor to TRAVEL, LOVE, WAR and THE SEASONS.
ISBN: 978-1909762558


Visiting Africa's game reserves is often all about spotting ‘The Big Five’ – the five most dangerous animals on the continent – the Lion, the Leopard, the Elephant, the Rhino and the Buffalo. But what about those animals you have almost zero chance of seeing? Travel writer Justin Fox decides to draw up a list of the most elusive animals and sets off to find ‘The Impossible Five’ – the Cape Mountain Leopard, the Aardvark, the Pangolin, the Riverine Rabbit and the naturally occurring White Lion. In a humorous, original, off-beat adventure story, Justin travels around Africa in search of these ‘impossible’ animals, discovering along the way that the people studying those mysterious beasts are sometimes stranger than the animals themselves.
