Description : This sacred romance between two lovers fills the pages of an English housewife's on-going diary, continuing on from Marina de Nadous' previous books; The Celestial Sea, Dry Dock and Setting Sail. Calm Waters & No Horizon continue the tale of Mouse and her lover, Adrian, who find themselves embracing an illicit but powerful connection they cannot deny. Continuing their journey of self-discovery, they plead for understanding from those who have become entangled in their moral dilemma. Set against the beautiful backdrop of coastal New Zealand, Mouse and Adrian record their lengthy correspondence, which details an intense, spiritual passion and magical connection. Mouse struggles as to which parts of her romance to share with the blank pages of her diary and she begins to realise that even the smallest details have consequences. The reader accompanies the protagonists' every move and thought, following the deep intimacy and magical parallel Mouse and Adrian share within the hurly burly of domestic life. Mouse's diary draws on her thoughts about emigration, a mother's domestic world, family life, intimacy and adventure. The ultimate escape from the trials of everyday life, Calm Waters & No Horizon are thought-provoking, deeply poetic and will appeal to readers who enjoy romance, spiritual possibility and sacred love.

Description : Inspired by the classical ancient world and authors such as C J Sansom, Retribution is the second Drakenfeld novel, in Mark Charan Newton's thrilling fantasy crime series. When justice fails, revenge follows . . . Having just solved a difficult case in his home city of Tryum, Sun Chamber Officer Lucan Drakenfeld and his associate Leana are ordered to journey to the exotic city of Kuvash in Koton, where a revered priest has gone missing. When they arrive, they discover the priest has already been found - or at least parts of him have. But investigating the unusual death isn't a priority for the legislature of Kuvash; there's a kingdom to run, a census to create and a dictatorial Queen to placate. Soon Drakenfeld finds that he is suddenly in charge of an investigation in a strange city, whose customs and politics are as complex as they are dangerous. Kuvash is a city of contradictions; wealth and poverty exist uneasily side-by-side and behind the rich façades of gilded streets and buildings, all levels of depravity and decadence are practised. When several more bodies are discovered mutilated and dumped in a public place, Drakenfeld realizes there's a killer at work who seems to delight in torture and pain. With no motive, no leads and no suspects, he feels like he's running out of options. And in a city where nothing is as it seems, seeking the truth is likely to get him killed . . .

Description : In 1996, 60-year-old Bob Kelly temporarily lost the use of his legs. That disability was hard to bear for someone who had always been physically active. The following year, while looking for a way to use his upper body strength, he had an idea-to travel solo by kayak from Ottawa to the Atlantic. In 1998, after completing that journey, Kelly faced another loss with the death of Shirley, his beloved wife of 34 years. He decided to continue the kayak trip across Canada as a memorial to her. It was an odyssey that took him some 9,000 kilometres through the most challenging waterways of Canada. In Solo, Kelly tells how he overcame daunting obstacles, brutal weather, serious injuries and setbacks. The story ends on the historic Grand Portage, where Kelly faced the most gruelling test. "Long trips over water and portages are metaphors of life-the wind can be with you or a hurricane in your face. Bob's included physical and emotional obstacles greater than the whims of weather and geography. It spanned more than distance and time and was indeed the journey of an indomitable spirit."-Max Finklestein, author of Canoeing a Continent and Paddling the Boreal Forest.

Description : The deepest waters hide the darkest secrets.... When the body of a murdered man literally falls at Elizabeth Stuart's feet, she's able to wash away the blood--but not the terror. Unwelcome newcomers to Still Creek, Minnesota, she and her troubled teenage son are treated with suspicion by the locals, including the sheriff. Yet nothing will stop her from digging beneath the town's placid surface for the truth—except the killer. Running from a messy divorce, Elizabeth believed buying a small-town newspaper offered a fresh start for herself and her son. But idyllic Still Creek, nestled in the heart of lush Amish farmlands, hides secrets dangerous enough to push someone to commit murder. Now Elizabeth must risk everything to save herself and her son, and to unmask the killer...before the current of evil flowing through Still Creek drags her under. When Elizabeth Stuart searched for a quiet, peaceful home for herself and her son, Still Creek seemed perfect. Nestled in the heart of lush Amish farmlands, this small, idyllic Minnesota town would allow her to put a shattering divorce behind her. But the locals were noticeably cool to the newcomer—who was rumored to be a gold-digger—especially when she started stirring up controversy with her newspaper. And now when a murdered body literally falls at her feet, she has a slight credibility problem...particularly with the arrogant sheriff whose blue eyes seem to know her darkest secrets. An ex-pro athlete who had returned to Still Creek a hero, Sheriff Dane Jantzen doesn't have much use for the media—especially not in the form of this glamorous, gutsy outsider who spells trouble with every word she prints. So when she becomes his suspect in a vicious crime, the last thing Dane expects is the jolt of attraction at their every encounter. Elizabeth would soon challenge Dane's every assumption, including the one that he's better off without love. But as they risk everything to uncover the truth, the current of evil that contaminates Still Creek threatens to pull them both under...
