11. Hill of Grace (Large Print 16pt) - Stephen Orr

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

1951. Among the coppiced carob trees and arum lilies of the Barossa Valley, old - school Lutheran William Miller lives a quiet life with his wife, Bluma, and son Nathan, making wine and baking bread. But William has a secret. He's been studying the Bible and he's found what a thousand others couldn't: the date of the Apocalypse.
William sets out to convince his neighbours that they need to join him in preparation for the End. The locals of Tanunda become divided. Did William really hear God's voice on the Hill of Grace? Or is he really deluded? The greatest test of all for William is whether Bluma and Nathan will support him. As the seasons pass in the Valley, as the vines flower and fruit and lose their leaves, William himself is forced to question his own beliefs and the price he's willing to pay for them.
The Barossa Valley of the 1950s is beautifully captured in this, Stephen Orr's second novel. His first novel, Attempts to Draw Jesus, was a runner up in the 2000 Vogel Award and published by Allen ... Unwin.
'His prose lovingly packed with particulars, Orr's characters assume poignant life as modernity and old - time religion go head to head in a wonderful period portrait.' - Cath Kenneally

17. Hope Burned (Large Print 16pt) - Brent Laporte

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

You sit down at the weathered harvest table to write a letter to your son. You need to explain the horrific events of the night, the circumstances that stained your hands with so much blood - the horrors that led you to take the lives of your own father and grandfather.
You journey back through darkness, deliberately, tentatively, to recover your own childhood. You compose your captivity, your torture, and the brutality of the men you've just killed. This was life on the farm: the strange and unspeakable things that went on.
And still, hope burned.
By the very same light you also write about escape, about security, compassion, and even love. The simple kindnesses that made you the man you are today, shielding you from danger, teaching you to live....
Until everything changed - everything but the farm.
At once as bleak and moving, tense and beautiful as Cormac McCarthy's The Road, Brent LaPorte's Hope Burned emerges from the ashes of the simplest, nearest apocalypse, from the innocence of childhood utterly betrayed, to ask which is the more difficult: to choose to live, or to die?
