This epic romance by Jude Deveraux carries on the story from Scarlet Nights. Gemma wants the job cataloguing the documents of the Frazier family so much that she is ready to do battle to get it.

As Gemma learns more about the family – and even begins falling in love with the eldest son, Colin – it becomes increasingly clear that their wishes are actually coming true. Softcover •

true crime

The truth behind Schapelle Corby’s drug SAVE $ 10 smuggling conviction

A portrait of a heartless killer Michael Duffy is a Sydney-based journalist who writes a crime column on trials for the Sun Herald. In Call Me Cruel, he examines an unusually cruel killer and the devastating impact of his crime on the many victims.

This is the explosive untold story of Schapelle Corby and how she took the rap for her father’s drug syndicate.

The investigation into the murder of Kylie Labouchardiere has been described by one of the state’s most experienced Crown prosecutors as among the most complex and bizarre in his experience. Kylie disappeared in 2004. Her killer, Paul Wilkinson, was convicted in 2009. Her body has never been found.

Schapelle was arrested in Bali in 2004 when she was caught at the airport with a large amount of marijuana. Produced by Eamonn Duff, a senior investigative journalist, Sins Of The Father leads readers through the weeks, days and hours leading up to Schapelle’s dramatic arrest. Softcover • 401 pages •

Michael Duffy approaches the murder from the viewpoint of four of those most affected by the crime: Kylie’s parents, Wilkinson’s wife, and a policeman caught up in the events entirely by accident. Softcover • 206 pages •

A book that will brighten up your day! This is an inspiring and humorous memoir about Sebastian Terry’s quest to complete his ‘bucket list’ – consisting of 100 things he wants to do before he dies. Softcover •

Of the 21 children in Anne Frank’s class at the Jewish school she attended in Amsterdam, eleven survived WWII and six are alive today. We All Wore Stars sheds new light on Anne Frank’s short life, as well as telling the stories of her classmates. In 1941, Theo Coster, the author of this book, was one of 21 students that the Nazis had segregated from the rest of the Dutch population. His remarkable story and the accounts of five fellow survivors are a testament to ingenuity and survival. From Albert Gomes de Mesquita, who hid in ten towns across Europe to Hannah Goslar, who experienced the horrors of Bergen Belsen, but also reunited with Anne days before her death, these are unforgettable stories.

Ethical guidance for a new millennium His Holiness The Dalai Lama enters the debate on religion, with this inspiring sequel to Ancient Wisdom, Modern World.

In Beyond Religion: Ethics For A Whole World, the Dalai Lama argues that religion is not a necessity for pursuing a spiritual life. Rather, focusing on tolerance and understanding between religions, as well as tolerance and understanding between believers (of any faith) and nonbelievers is the way forward. The way to achieve such an approach, he proposes, is through a system of secular ethics grounded in a deep appreciation of our common humanity. This book is a modern-day polemic that outlines the ethics that the Dalai Lama believes should be central to our lives. Hardback •

A rich and evocative account of convict women NEW From the crowded tenements of Edinburgh to the Female Factory in the shadow of Mt Wellington, dozens of Scottish women convicts were exiled to Van Diemen’s Land with their young children.

In the early 19th century, women of little means struggling to feed and clothe themselves, were left with few options other than theft and prostitution. The Scottish authorities, anxious to quell petty crime, imposed harsh sentences, consigning these women – and often their children too – for transportation to the Australian colonies. Lucy Frost tells the stories of a boatload of women and their children who arrived in Hobart in 1838, bringing to life a long forgotten but fascinating group of convicts. Softcover • 288 pages •
