9. Dissonance A Novel (Large Print 16pt) - Stephen Orr

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

Dissonance begins with piano practice. Fifteen - year - old Erwin Hergert is forced to tackle scales and studies for six hours a day by his mother, Madge, who is determined to produce Australia's first great pianist. 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.

10. 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
