Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

'Reminds me of some of the great works of Wilbur Smith.'' - Lillian Brummet, Reviewer A thousand years ago an almost legendary city existed in southern Africa, the hub of trade and with mystical stories abounding about its power and origins. But by the end of the 14th Century it was inexplicably deserted, and the rubble that is left is now known as the Zimbabwe Ruins. In the 1960s and 70s a war raged for possession of Rhodesia, now known as Zimbabwe. A country named for the ruins of a city no - one has the answers for; yet in our story the two are intertwined, tied in like a knot. Powerful women who shaped their worlds: Tcana, daughter of a cattleherd, yet fated to be wife of the King's son, and high priestess of a new religion that would tear apart that same kingdom; and Rebecca, a TV journalist hundreds of years later, face to face with the fury of a bush war which would challenge her faith and her heart, and in the final hour would see her facing her enemy in the very place that Tcana had held sacred. Powerful men whose own destinies were set on fire by the catalyst of their women. Two sons of one king, good and evil. Two warriers, Selous Scouts, white and black, fighting side by side against an insurgent malevolence. And, once again, two religions in a battle to the death.

5. Dark Clouds on the Mountain (Large Print 16pt) - John Tully

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

'''John Tully's Dark Clouds on the Mountain is a finely written detective story that carries its reader along with an intriguing plot, a gallery of memorable characters, and strange presentiments of evil. Through this last quality, Tully reveals the old Hobart Town that still lies behind the modern Hobart. This gives the novel a dimension in time that does not detract from the immediacy of its portrayal of social, family and political disturbance in the contemporary world. Its fast - moving narrative takes us into the heart of a Tasmania as much embroiled in the contemporary globe as in its particular past.'' John McLaren Crime fiction: Set in wintry Tasmania in the early 1990s, with flashbacks to post - war Hobart and Europe during World War II, this story deals with dark secrets, crime and Nazi plots, interwoven with familiar domestic tensions of family life and marriage. Tully creates a fictional world strongly embedded in authentic details of real locations and well - conceived characters.

6. Dark Dawn (Large Print 16pt) - Matt McGuire

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

No book has changed our understanding of ourselves more than ''Darwin's Origin of Species''. It caused a sensation on its first day of publication in 1859 and went on to become an international bestseller. The idea that living things gradually evolve through natural selection profoundly shocked its Victorian readers, calling into question what had been for many the unshakeable belief that there was a Creator. In this book, Janet Browne, Charles Darwin's foremost biographer, shows why ''Darwin's Origin of Species'' can fairly claim to be the greatest science book ever published. She describes the genesis of Darwin's theories, explains how they were initially received and examines why they remain so contentious today. Her book is a marvellously readable account of the work that altered forever our knowledge of what it is to be human.

To help Erwin focus, Madge has exiled her husband, Johann, to the back shed. Jo is diagnosed with cancer and Madge allows him back inside, but only for long enough to die.
Madge takes Erwin to Hamburg to continue his studies. Erwin prospers in Germany with his new teacher until he meets a neighbour, sixteen - year - old Luise, and finds there's more to life than music.
Meanwhile, Germany is moving towards war. Late 1930s Hamburg forms the backdrop to an increasingly difficult love - triangle, as Erwin is torn between the piano, Luise, and the demands of his love and devotion to his mother. Soon the bombs, real and imagined, start falling. Marriage and parenthood give way to death, and tragedy. Before long Erwin and Madge are drawn into the horrors of a war that leaves little time for music.
Dissonance is a re - imagining of the 'Frankfurt years' of Rose and Percy Grainger. This is a novel about love in one of its most extreme and destructive forms, and how people attempt to survive the threat of possession.
