Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 10.00  - Click book title for availability and further details

A veces suceden hechos inexplicables o imprevistos. Desconcertantes, porque no conocemos las causas cuya magnitud y alcance nos sobrepasan. Una tragedia se cierne sobre dos jóvenes optimistas y pletóricos de vida. ¿Qué les ha pasado a José Luis, un estudiante español del París de los años sesenta, y a Carole, una hermosa francesa de origen cubano que estudia Historia en la Sorbona, de quien ha quedado prendado? Un viaje al que nos invita para descubrir que, a veces, podemos encontrar raíces muy diáfanas en lo inexplicable, siempre que estemos dispuestos a recorrer el camino que nos devuelva al origen.

4. The Woman in the Bazaar - Alice Perrin

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 9.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

‘He was living once more in those far-away days that had begun with such happiness, only to end in such failure and pain […] and now a result had arisen, alive and awful and tragic—the woman in the bazaar!’

On leave in England from his regimental duties in British India, Captain George Coventry falls in love with the vicar’s daughter, Rafella Forte. After a brief courtship they marry and move to India. Rafella is a devoted wife and George is glad to have her for a partner, but when she strikes up a friendship with Mr Kennard, a handsome barrister, George assumes the worst. In a fit of jealous rage, he terrorizes his young wife and she escapes into the night, never to be seen again.

Years later, when he is given another chance at love with the young, outgoing beauty Trixie Munro, George must face down his dark past. He must also contend with the ‘woman in the bazaar’—an increasingly persistent and bloodcurdling rumour of an Englishwoman sold into slavery—a horror he fears he might have wrought on his first wife.

A compelling portrait of marriage and jealousy written in fluid prose, The Woman in the Bazaar is compulsively readable and one of the finest novels of the Raj era. Once a popular writer with many bestsellers to her credit, Alice Perrin is now being rediscovered for her memorable yarns of British life in India.

5. Star of India - Alice Perrin

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 13.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Stella Carrington, young and beautiful, feels that life is passing her by in the repressed Victorian household of her grandmother and spinster aunts. A casual flirtation shocks and horrifies the elderly ladies, and they summon Robert Crayfield, her godfather, who is an officer in the Indian Civil Service, to make suitable arrangements for her to be a missionary or governess. But, tantalized by her beauty and disregarding the difference in their ages, he offers to marry her instead, scandalizing the village.

Stella, indifferent to romance, is most excited by the prospect of going to India that her marriage offers. Once there, she is enthralled at the beauty and mystery of the subcontinent, but increasingly disenchanted by her husband, who is only interested in her as a whet to his sensual appetites. When the young, handsome Philip Flint is posted as a junior officer in the same town, for the first time, she is forced to consider her own desires and duties.

Alice Perrin writes of Anglo-Indian life during the Raj era with great detail and sympathy, drawing compelling characters who love and despair, feel jealousy and doubt. Once a popular writer with many bestsellers to her credit, she is now being rediscovered for her memorable romances and ghost stories set in India at the turn of the twentieth century.

10. The Sleeping Beauty and Other Tales - Charles Perrault

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: 14.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The book includes five famous tales by Charles Perrault illustrated by Walter Crane (40 colour illustrations): Little Red Riding Hood; The Master Cat, or Puss in Boots; Blue Beard; The Sleeping Beauty in the Woods; and Cinderella, or The Little Glass Slipper. Walter Crane was a prominent book illustrator of the 19th century. In cooperation with Edmund Evans, he designed picture books printed in colour, which became the most popular children's books at the time thanks to their high level of craftsmanship and low price. Crane's style shows the influence of the art of the Renaissance and Japanese prints (ukiyo-e). He designed his books according to the belief that "children, like the ancient Egyptians, appear to see most things in profile and like definite statements in design. They prefer well-defined forms and bright, frank colour. They don't want to bother about three dimensions. They can accept symbolic representations. They themselves employ drawing ... as a kind of picture-writing and eagerly follow a pictured story." Crane's work set the standards of taste in the Victorian children's book industry and earned him a reputation as 'the father of the illustrated children's book'.

A funny novel that tackles the serious issues of divorce, breast cancer and being stuck in the 'Sandwich Generation'.

Running from one crisis to another, Penny Rushmore misses the signs that her husband is about to leave her for a sexy, younger woman and is left bouncing between shoe shops and dreams of revenge. But how far should she go? And how will she find the time? She has no time for work - life balance, no time to read the manuals on coping with difficult teenagers and an increasingly dotty mother, and she especially has no time for breast cancer. But there's nothing like the big C to help sort out what's really important. When life hangs in the balance, decisions about whether to splurge on designer shoes, lose unwanted kilos or find a new fella suddenly don't seem so important any more ... until he turns up, that is.
