1. The Girls Who Went to War: Heroism, Heartache and Happiness in the Wartime Women's Forces - Duncan Barrett, Nuala Calvi

Largeprint (paperback) Our price: £23.50  - Currently in stock

In the summer of 1940, Britain stood alone against Germany. The British Army stood at just over one and a half million men, while the Germans had three times that many. Eighteen-year-old Jessie Ward defied her mother to join the ATS, Margery Pott signed up for the Women's Auxiliary Air Force, and nanny Kathleen Skin the WRNS. They left quiet homes for the rigours of training, the camaraderie of the young women who worked together so closely and to face a war that would change their lives for ever. Overall, more than half a million women served in the armed forces during the Second World War.

2. No More Champagne: Churchill and His Money - David Lough

Largeprint (paperback) Our price: £23.50  - Currently in stock

The popular image of Churchill conjures up a man of wealth and substance. The reality is that Britain's most celebrated 20th-century statesman lived for most of his life on a financial cliff-edge. Only fragments of information about his finances, or their impact on his public life, have previously emerged. With the help of unprecedented access to Churchill's private records, David Lough creates the first fully researched narrative of Churchill's private finances and business affairs. As he reveals the scale of Churchill's financial risk-taking, combined with an ability to talk or write himself out of the tightest of corners, the links between the private man and public figure become clear.

Aside from being far too sure of himself for his own good, Scott's major flaw is he defends the very people that she works so hard to imprison. But when Scott wants something he goes for it. And he wants Megan. One day she'll see him not as a lawyer, but as a man - and that's when she'll fall for him.

When Gaby Bailleux released the Angel Worm into Australia's prison system, allowing hundreds of asylum seekers to walk free, she also let the cat out of the bag. The Americans ran the prisons, like so many parts of her country, and so the doors of some 5000 American places of incarceration also opened. Both countries' secrets threatened to pour out. Was this a mistake, or had Gaby declared cyberwar on the US? Felix Moore - known to himself as 'Australia's last serving left wing journalist' - has no doubt. Felix is going to write Gaby's biography, to save her, and himself, and maybe his country.

8. Writing the Garden: A Literary Conversation Across Two Centuries - Elizabeth Barlow Rogers

Largeprint (paperback) Our price: £23.50  - Currently in stock

This is a fascinating exploration of the writings and personalities who have shaped our ideas about gardens and gardening. Gardening, more than most outdoor activities, has always attracted a cult of devotedly literate practitioners - people who like to dig, it appears, also like to write. For the most part they are not professional landscape designers or how-to horticulturalists, but rather hands-on gardeners who write with their own gardens in full-view. Ranging in time and place from France to modern-day New York City, they invite the listener into the natural world of soil and flowers.

Her childhood and her years at Oxford during the Second World War – those things are solid in her memory. Then comes a phone call... Her memory splits in two. She was Trish, a housewife and mother of four. She was Pat, a successful travel writer and mother of three. She remembers living her life as both women, so very clearly. Which memory is real – or are both just tricks of time and light?
