82. 9/11 and the Art of Happiness An Australian Story (Large Print 16pt) - Simon Kennedy

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

On 11 September 2001, Australian Yvonne Kennedy boarded American Airlines flight 77 to return to Australia after a US holiday. That day has since been seared into our consciousness. Her flight was hijacked and deliberately crashed into the Pentagon. All passengers on board were killed. Yvonne's death left her family devastated. In 9/11 and the Art of Happiness her son, Simon Kennedy, a well - known Australian comedian and broadcaster, recounts the distressing and often at - times bizarre events that followed. Initially there is confusion: Was his mother actually on the plane? The world of officialdom then turns everything upside down and there is no space to grieve: airline officials require endless information; FBI agents pay home visits; and an invitation is received to meet Barrack Obama at an official US memorial service. And there is always the media wanting personal information. However, even ten years after the event, Simon is reminded each day of the 9/11 attack. The aftermath of his mother's shocking death remains, making it difficult to come to terms with his loss but even more remarkable that he has found his way to forgiveness. 9/11 and the Art of Happiness is an engrossing story of the life - changing impact a global political event has on the individuals and their families who are caught in the maelstrom.

FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BESTSELLING COTSWOLD MYSTERIES SERIES. When irascible farmer Guy Beardon meets a very dirty death in his own farmyard, at first it seems like an accident - despite the fact that he was widely disliked. Only his daughter Lilah is prepared to defend his memory. And when, slowly, Lilah begins to suspect foul play, no one is eager to help her investigate. Suspicion becomes certainty when two more deaths occur - and both of them are unmistakably murder. The difficulty lies in discovering who, among Guy's many enemies, hated him enough to want him dead - and who went on killing to conceal the truth. There is certainly no shortage of suspects and it falls to local policeman Den Cooper to investigate the mysterious deaths...

89. A Gift of Grace Book One (Large Print 16pt) - Amy Clipston

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

Jesus for President is a radical manifesto to awaken the Christian political imagination, reminding us that our ultimate hope lies not in partisan political options but in Jesus and the incarnation of the peculiar politic of the church as a people ''set apart from this world. In what can be termed lyrical theology, Jesus for President poetically weaves together words and images to sing (rather than dictate) its message. It is a collaboration of Shane Claiborne's writing and stories, Chris Haw's reflections and research, and Chico Fajardo-Heflin's art and design. Drawing upon the work of biblical theologians, the lessons of church history, and the examples of modern-day saints and ordinary radicals, Jesus for President stirs the imagination of what the Church could look like if it placed its faith in Jesus instead of Caesar. A fresh look at Christianity and empire, Jesus for President transcends questions of ''Should I vote or not? and ''Which candidate? by thinking creatively about the fundamental issues of faith and allegiance. It's written for those who seek to follow Jesus, rediscover the spirit of the early church, and incarnate the kingdom of God.

94. A Little Book of Pleasures (Large Print 16pt) - William Wood

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

A delightful anecdotal collection! In these days of 24 hour news many of us may feel smothered under an avalanche of anxiety, despondency or at best choking with rage over national and world events. Grand passions apart, however, there is still much to enjoy. The small pleasures of life lie all around us. They might be found in a state of mind, in the touch of a familiar object such as a favourite wooden spoon, or they may be found in fleeting observations: a baby's smile, the sudden appearance of a stag in your path; or they may be physical pleasures like sucking the wet flesh of a ripe mango or the aroma of coffee spilling out on to the pavement on a cold morning. In a mad and greedy world it is these small pleasures that keep us sane, and dare we admit it, happy. Told with wry humour and a gentle, sometimes quirky style slightly reminiscent of a bygone era, Wood's collection contains a mixture of description and observation with a smattering of autobiographical incident. Wood has lived in many places of the world, is well travelled and well read, with a keen sense of enjoyment in what he sees and experiences, and a talent for bringing that visually to the mind of his reader. The short, usually self - contained pieces make wonderful cameos both for those who do their reading in snatches, and those who will want to devour his stories in one sitting. William Wood has led a nomadic life and his friends and relatives are far flung. He now lives and writes in Sussex when he is not visiting his children in France, Rutland and Cumbria or his in - laws in Norway and Slovakia. The diaries he keeps on these visits occasionally give him local colour and ideas for his stories. His short stories have been read on the BBC World Service and included in a number of magazines and anthologies. His first published novel, No Time, was brought out by Babesh/Ryan in 2003 and his next novel, Passing Wind has been shortlisted for an Amazon prize.

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

Jules broke off her wedding to Cruz practically at the altar. Not just once, but twice. Now the man Jules loves best can't stand the sight of her. Only for Pop could Jules have made such a sacrifice. And now Pop is gone, leaving Jules with his struggling Washington State potato farm; with a sister excluded from his will; and with a heart wounded by the sacrifice she has made on behalf of her father. It looks like strengthening her relationship with her sister and improving the prospects of the Blue Bayou farm will be Jules' chief concerns. But when cancer takes the life of her best friend, Jules finds herself caring for her friend's two small children as well as the Blue Bayou. A drought-stricken farm. A promise to a dead friend and two needy little lives. And disturbing memories stirring up a growing relationship with her sister. How can one woman handle it all? The answer lies with a God who holds the keys to yesterday, today, and tomorrow and to the heart of the one man whom Jules could ever love.

96. A Million Windows (Large Print 16pt) - Gerald Murnane

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

This new work of fiction by one of Australia's most highly regarded authors focuses on the importance of trust, and the possibility of betrayal, in storytelling as in life. It tests the relationship established between author and reader, and on occasions of intimacy, between child and parent, boyfriend and girlfriend, husband and wife. Murnane's fiction is woven from images, and the feelings associated with them, and the images that flit through A Million Windows like butterflies - the reflections of the setting sun like spots of golden oil, the houses of two or perhaps three storeys, the procession of dark - haired females, the clearing in the forest, the colours indigo and silver - grey, the death of a young woman who had leaped into a well - build to an emotional crescendo that is all the more powerful for the intricacy of their patterning.

97. A Modern Mephistopheles - Louisa May Alcott

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £12.65  - Click book title for availability and further details

Manipulation from a Faustian figure who also deals in drugs and fame?

Seduction and adultery lounging alongside a climax of redemption?

A Modern Mephistopheles is the stage for Louisa May Alcott's own secret passions. It is not the "pap" for children as Alcott said herself of her novel published anonymously in 1877. Not until after her death in 1888 was she revealed to the general public as its author.

This is not the Alcott that you think about, but it is the dark story she wanted to write about in a male-dominated Victorian Age of veiled and hypocritical constraint, a woman's metamorphosis away from a cocoon made by men for men.

A Terrible Curse, A Bard Hunting The Unknown; A Powerful Force Has Arisen, But It’s Face Is Still Unknown

In the land of Theugua, where people still whisper of the ancient tales of old, a young Bard practices with his famous master. In this ancient land, people called Bards exist; warriors that can cast magic using their musical instruments. This land is full of legends, but they are nothing more than tales aimed to frighten the young, or entertain the old. But Ornsell, a simple man in everything but his soul, couldn’t have known that those tales where coming back to life and that one of them was hunting him that very morning. Ornsell’s son, Vygarast, a half-elf and a Bard in training, finds himself in the middle of unnatural events that spin his life out of control. Without knowing it, he finds himself entangled in a dangerous game of fate, one that will lead him into the greatest adventure of his life with thousands of lives on the line. Theugua, once a land of peaceful humans and elves, is now threatened by what was meant to stay hidden, what was meant to slumber forever more deep in the shadows of space and time. The world is changing and nothing will ever be the same.

This is The Bard’s Tale!
