The Au Pair by Emma Rous

9780349419091.jpg

Seraphine Mayes and her brother Danny are known as the summer-born Summerbournes: the first set of summer twins to be born at Summerbourne House. But on the day they were born their mother threw herself to her death, their au pair fled, and the village thrilled with whispers of dark-cloaked figures and a stolen baby.

Now twenty-five, and mourning the recent death of her father, Seraphine uncovers a family photograph taken on the day the twins were born featuring both parents posing with just one baby. Seraphine soon becomes fixated with the notion that she and Danny might not be twins after all, that she wasn't the baby born that day and that there was more to her mother's death than she has ever been told...

Why did their beloved au pair flee that day?

Where is she now?

Does she hold the key to what really happened?

King of the Air The Turbulent Life of Charles Kingsford Smith by Ann Blainey

king-of-the-air.jpg

Charles Kingsford Smith was the most commanding flyer of the golden age of aviation. In three short years, he broke records with his astounding and daring voyages- the first trans-Pacific flight from America to Australia, the first flight across the Tasman, the first non-stop crossing of the Australian mainland. He did it all with such courage, modesty and charm that Australia and the world fell in love with him. A ticker-tape parade was held in his honour on New York's Fifth Avenue. At home, he became a national hero, 'Our Smithy'.

Yet his achievements belied a traumatic past. He had witnessed the horror of World War I - first as a soldier at Gallipoli, later as a combat pilot with the Royal Flying Corps. Erratic, a compulsive philanderer, and almost always broke, he began to embark on increasingly wild and dangerous stunts. The public saw the derring-do; only those close to him knew the anxious, troubled individual who pushed himself to the edge of sanity.
In November 1935, Kingsford Smith's plane crashed and he was lost at sea near Burma, his body never to be recovered. This brilliant work from one of Australia's foremost biographers reveals the tumultuous life of a fascinating, enigmatic figure, who pursued his obsession to the greatest heights of fame and catastrophe.

Heart A History by Sandeep Jauhar

heart.jpg

The heart is at the centre of every life. It is the first major organ to develop and, three billion beats later, it is the last to stop working. The object of fascination for countless scientists and artists across the centuries, the heart is as much a metaphorical as a physiological matter it can even suffer such distress due to emotional trauma that it physically changes shape.
Tracing the evolution of humanity 's medical knowledge from Ancient Greece to modern times, delving into religion and spirituality, exploring art and poetry, Dr Sandeep Jauhar tells the story of the heart as it has never been told before. Enriched by his own experiences as a doctor, it is a tale at once personal and universal, encompassing science 's wonders and failures, and addressing the immense challenges faced by health professionals today as the tide of heart failures continues to rise throughout the developed world. Heart is a major and moving contribution to the history and science of the organ inside each of us that both initiates and claims our lives.

The New Silk Roads: The Present and Future of the World by Peter Frankopan

the-new-silk-roads.jpg

When The Silk Roads was published in 2015 it became an instant classic. A major reassessment of world history, it compelled us look at the past from a different perspective. The New Silk Roads brings this story up to date, addressing the present and future of a world that is changing dramatically. 
Following the Silk Roads eastwards, from Europe through to China, by way of Russia and the Middle East, The New Silk Roads provides a timely reminder that we live in a world that is profoundly interconnected. In an age of Brexit and Trump, the themes of isolation and fragmentation permeating the Western world stand in sharp contrast to what has been happening along the Silk Roads since 2015, where the story has been about deepening ties and trying to work together. 

With brilliant insight, Peter Frankopan takes a fresh look at the network of relationships that are being formed along the length and breadth of the Silk Roads today, assessing the global reverberations of these continual shifts in the centre of power all too often absent from headlines in the west. 
This important and ultimately hopeful book asks us to re-read who we are and where we are in the world, illuminating the themes on which all our lives and livelihood depend.

Roxy's Little Black Book of Tips and Tricks by Roxy Jacenko

roxy-s-little-black-book-of-tips-and-tricks.jpg

The fact that I'm sitting here writing a business book when, at school, I was the student who read the crib notes rather than the actual books is rather ironic. However, if I've proved anything over the years, it's that you needn't be the smartest girl in the room or get the highest marks (heck, I didn't even go to uni!) to succeed in PR or business. If I can do it, anyone can. The trick is to be willing to give up your excuses and consistently put in the work.

Roxy Jacenko built a PR empire on intuition, common sense and an unbreakable work ethic. Now she's passing on her best business advice, tips and tricks in a handsome handbag-sized volume that's perfectly sized for the millennial worker on the run. From writing a stand-out application to building your brand to generating killer social media buzz, Roxy's Little Black Book is a must-read resource for aspiring publicists and business builders, and for anyone already in the PR industry.

About the Author

Roxy Jacenko is an Australian businesswoman and media personality, socialite and author, known as Sydney's PR queen. She lives in Bondi with her husband and children.

I Can't Remember the Title But the Cover is Blue by Elias Greig

i-can-t-remember-the-title-but-the-cover-is-blue.jpg

As any retail or service worker will tell you, customers can be irrational, demanding, abusive, and brain-scramblingly, mind-bendingly strange. They can also be kind, thoughtful, funny, and full of pathos. Something about the often-fraught interaction between customer and worker - with the dividing line of the counter between them, and the commercial imperative, with its curious etiquette and toleration of all kinds of suspect behaviour brooding above - dims down certain inhibitions, and has a kind of hot-house effect on eccentricity. 

In I Can't Remember the Title But the Cover is Blue, veteran bookseller Elias Greig collects the best, worst and most interesting customer encounters from his years as a Sydney bookseller. From ill-behaved children to nostalgia seniors and everything in between, this hilarious and unpredictable book is the perfect gift for anyone who's ever been on the wrong side of a store counter.

Memento Mori: What the Romans Can Tell Us About Old Age and Death by Peter Jones

9781786494801.jpg

Romans inhabited a world where man, knowing nothing about hygiene let alone disease, had no defences against nature. Death was everywhere. Half of all Roman children were dead by the age of five. Only eight per cent of the population made it over sixty. One bizarre result was that half the population consisted of teenagers.

From the elites' philosophical take on the brevity of life to the epitaphs left by butchers, bakers and buffoons, Memento Mori ('Remember you are mortal') shows how the Romans faced up to this world and attempted to take the sting out of death.

My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Brathwaite

my-sister-the-serial-killer.jpg

When Korede's dinner is interrupted one night by a distress call from her sister, Ayoola, she knows what's expected of her: bleach, rubber gloves, nerves of steel and a strong stomach. This'll be the third boyfriend Ayoola's dispatched in, quote, self-defence and the third mess that her lethal little sibling has left Korede to clear away. She should probably go to the police for the good of the menfolk of Nigeria, but she loves her sister and, as they say, family always comes first. 

Until, that is, Ayoola starts dating the fit doctor where Korede works as a nurse. Korede's long been in love with him, and isn't prepared to see him wind up with a knife in his back: but to save one would mean sacrificing the other...

Fire and Blood: 300 Years Before A Game of Thrones (A Targaryen History)

fire-and-blood.jpg

From the masterly imagination behind A Game of Thrones - one of the greatest fantasy epics of all time and an unmissable HBO hit series - comes a definitive history of Westeros’s past as told by Archmaester Gyldayn. 

Unravelling events that led to A Song of Ice and Fire, Fire and Blood is the first volume of the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens in Westeros. Revealing long-buried secrets and untold lasting enmity, it sets the scene for the heart-stopping series conclusion, The Winds of Winter. 

300 years before the events of A Song of Ice and Fire, long before the schism that set the houses of Westeros at each other’s throats, one house ruled supreme and indomitable. House Targaryen, the house of the last remaining dragonlords. 

After surviving the Doom of Valyria the Targaryen’s established themselves on Dragonstone. This volume traces their legendary lineage from Aegon the Conqueror to the bloody Dance of Dragons; a civil war that pitted Aegon II and his half-sister Rhaenyra in a bitter conflict for the throne of their father, nearly wiping out the Targaryen dynasty forever. 

What really happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why did it become so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What is the origin of Daenerys’s three dragon eggs? These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel. 

With all the scope and grandeur of Gibbon’s The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Fire and Blood is the ultimate guide to Westeros’s past. Featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley this is an essential volume for any Game of Thrones fan’s library. For the first time the full tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed.

The End of the Earth by Jonathan Franzen

x293 (3).jpg

A sharp and provocative new essay collection from the award-winning author of Freedom and The Corrections 

In The End of the End of the Earth, which gathers essays and speeches written mostly in the past five years, Jonathan Franzen returns with renewed vigor to the themes - both human and literary - that have long preoccupied him. Whether exploring his complex relationship with his uncle, recounting his young adulthood in New York, or offering an illuminating look at the global seabird crisis, these pieces contain all the wit and disabused realism that we've come to expect from Franzen.

Taken together, these essays trace the progress of a unique and mature mind wrestling with itself, with literature, and with some of the most important issues of our day, made more pressing by the current political milieu. The End of the End of the Earth is remarkable, provocative and necessary.
