What’s new in March & April….

FICTION

  • Jeffrey Archer’s fourth installment in the Clifton Chronicles opens with Harry Clifton and his wife Emma rushing to hospital to learn the fate of their son Sebastian, who has been involved in a fatal car accident. But who died, Sebastian or his best friend Bruno?When Ross Buchanan is forced to resign as chairman of the Barrington Shipping Company, Emma Clifton wants to replace him. But Don Pedro Martinez intends to install his puppet, the egregious Major Alex Fisher, in order to destroy the Barrington family firm just as the company plans to build its new luxury liner, the MV Buckingham.

    Back in London, Harry and Emma’s adopted daughter wins a scholarship to the Slade Academy of Art where she falls in love with a fellow student, Clive Bingham, who asks her to marry him. Both families are delighted until Priscilla Bingham, Jessica’s future mother-in-law, has a visit from an old friend, Lady Virginia Fenwick, who drops her particular brand of poison into the wedding chalice.

    Then, without warning, Cedric Hardcastle, a bluff Yorkshireman who no one has come across before, takes his place on the board of Barringtons. This causes an upheaval that none of them could have anticipated, and will change the lives of every member of the Clifton and Barrington families. Hardcastle’s first decision is who to support to become the next chairman of the board: Emma Clifton or Major Alex Fisher? And with that decision, the story takes yet another twist that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

  • Burial Rites is new into a smaller format paperback for $20.00. If you are not familiar with Hannah Kent’s debut masterpiece, then this is a great opportunity to read one of the best books of 2013.

    In northern Iceland, 1829, Agnes Magnúsdóttir is condemned to death for her part in the brutal murder of two men. Agnes is sent to wait on the farm of District Officer Jón Jónsson and his family, who are horrified and avoid Agnes. Only Tóti, the young assistant Reverend appointed as Agnes’s spiritual guardian, is compelled to try to understand her. As the summer months fall away to winter, Agnes’s story begins to emerge. And as the days to her execution draw closer, the question burns: did she or didn’t she?Based on a true story, Burial Rites is a deeply moving novel about freedom and the ways we will risk everything for love. In beautiful, cut-glass prose, Hannah Kent portrays Iceland’s formidable landscape, and asks: how can one woman endure when her life depends upon the stories told by others?

  • The Son by Jo Nesbo is a departure from Harry Hole. New in April, the thriller sees a charismatic young prisoner escaping jail to find out the truth about his father’s death.

    Sonny is a model prisoner.

Some people even whisper that Sonny is serving time for someone else: that he doesn’t just listen, he confesses to their crimes.Inspector Simon Kefas is a dedicated police officer. Simon has worked for the Oslo police force for years. He’s just been assigned a new murder investigation and a new partner, all on the same day.

    Both of them knew Sonny’s father. To Sonny he was the man he idolised, to Simon he was his best friend. Both were left devastated when his corruption was revealed.But neither of them knew the truth.

  • The Australian Notebooks by Betty Churcher
    In Australian Notebooks, Betty Churcher revisits some of the artworks she most cherishes—a seminal Picasso, early works of the Heidelberg School, a striking portrait by Lucian Freud—and invites us to look afresh at the treasures that can be found in Australian galleries.Taking in the glorious work of Australian artists such as John Olsen, Arthur Boyd and Sidney Nolan, as well as masterpieces by Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse and Giambattista Tiepolo, through her own accomplished skteches Betty draws out the particular charm and context of each piece.Interwoven with extraordinary stories—one canvas flew off the back of a truck on the Pacific Highway; another was imported from Imperial Russia, paid for with a briefcase full of cash—Betty’s engaging insights bring the artworks to life.

    With gorgeous full-colour reproductions, this is a book to turn to again and again for inspiration, solace and delight.Australian Notebooks
