Refuge

Bitter Orange

by Claire Fuller
£14.99

Frances Jellico is dying and remembering the summer of 1969, when she was commissioned to survey the follies in the garden of a derelict country house. There, living in the attic, she meets Cara and Peter who are staying in the rooms above hers. As Frances falls under her new friends' spell, the house offers up its own secrets and we begin to enter theirs. Wonderfully atmospheric, a great read right up to the last page and the final denouement.

Love is Blind

by William Boyd
£18.99

I realised how blindly I’ll follow anything that William Boyd writes as I dove into Love is Blind without paying the proper amount of attention. I had to restart when I realised, halfway through, that I’d got the wrong end of the stick. But persevere (and that’s not at all hard with Boyd) and you’ll be rewarded! And if you pay attention in the beginning you won’t have to re-read like I did, although you may want to anyway!! Download some Liszt to listen to while you read.

She was the first woman to lead a party to electoral victory in her country. In 2009 she became the first woman to become Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme and served two terms in the role.

This book is a celebration of an outstanding leader who continues to strive and work for change, and it's a rallying call for other women leaders, whether they are in political, economic or social power.

Nomad has exclusive selling rights to this book in the UK. A limited number of signed copies will be available following the book signing event on 13 Oct.

Melmoth

by Sarah Perry
£16.99

The mood, the atmosphere the author creates in this book is wonderfully dark and rich, but the cause of it remains elusive and just out of sight. A book about one thing turns out to be about something else entirely. It’s almost a parable. Prague is describe in the most luscious but sinister way. The central character, translator Helen Franklin, is not necessarily likable, certainly not enviable, and it's difficult to feel FOR her, but you begin to feel WITH her, as she feels with character from the past. Totally engrossing… the sort of book you have to leave some space after you’ve finished.

Only To Sleep

by Lawrence Osborne

Wealthy dead American. Beautiful young widow.

This case has PI Philip Marlowe's name written all over it. Is it enough to bring him back for one last adventure?

Set between the border and badlands of Mexico and California, Lawrence Osborne's resurrection of the iconic Marlowe is an unforgettable addition to the Raymond Chandler canon.

Paris Echo

by Sebastian Faulks
£20.00

Characters with nothing in common but their obsession with finding the past in present day Paris, intersect and influence each other. The city of Paris is as much a character in this tale as the people living there. Faulks weaves the strands of the German Occupation, the Algerian conflict, and the necessity of understanding history in the present context into this graceful and contemplative book. This inspired me to re-read several other Faulks novels....talk about echoes!

Ponti

by Sharlene Teo
£14.99

The three main characters of Ponti are women; two teenagers who are friends by default and the mother of one of them who is a muse and a curse to them both. But there is a fourth character here, Singapore, so amazingly drawn that I briefly believed I'd been there. It's not portrayed positively, but in such a raw and honest way that I could feel the heat, smell the air. Teo's depiction of unloved, unpopular, unattractive and ignored teenage girls is universal and disturbing in its clarity.

I am, I am, I am

by Maggie O’Farrell

Wilding

by Isabella Tree
£20.00

This is an extraordinary book. Over the past 17 years the writer's substantial West Sussex Estate, Knepp, has been turned from an almost bankrupt dairy farm into a natural haven. This enthralling account of their work there, in which large numbers of endangered species now freely roam the land, shows how an ecological breakthrough can be made with imagination and persistence. The writing is excellent, but not written for academics, so it is easily accessible to the lay reader - and an amazing read it is!

Kudos

by Rachel Cusk
£16.99

Kudos is the third in a trilogy but can stand alone quite well. Reading it has been more like overhearing conversations than actually reading. Although Cusk is not a silent participant and is sometimes the subject of the conversations, she makes it feel like you're a part of them. The portraits she draws are meticulously crafted without a wasted word. As with the previous books in the series, Outline and Transit, I felt I was being given an honest portrayal of the smallest details in life which are also life's largest questions.

Animal Ark: Fox Cub Danger

by Lucy Daniels
£4.99

Wow. I had not read any science fiction in a long time and was curious to read this book before it got turned into a film. I was hooked from the first pages. The characters and the story never cease to intrigue. The first person narration and the detailed account of every sensation, smell and sight give you the impression you are seeing everything through the main character's eyes. Not specifically aimed at the science fiction fan, so take the plunge and enjoy!

Once We Were Sisters

by Sheila Kohler
£8.99

A sad but extremely beautiful book relating the childhood of two sisters, and a search for answers that might never come, after the death of one. Supported by impeccable writing, this memoir takes us across the world, becoming as much of a personal recollection of family memories, stories, images, and sensations as a vivid record of what it was to become and adult in the 60s and 70s.

Lincoln in the Bardo

by George Saunders
£8.99

This is a reading adventure. I was never quite sure what was going on, and at first that was disconcerting. But if you just sit back and enjoy the ride, reading this is like a roller coaster! Particles of fascinating history take off in completely bizarre directions. Narrators change without warning. In the end you really do feel like you're in someone else's head...or maybe several peoples' heads!! Enjoyable IF you can let go, trust this amazing author and follow Saunders' lead!

A brilliant adult debut for Dawn O'Porter. The voices of the characters in The Cows are powerful and they all need to be heard (or read!), whether you feel sympathy for them or not.

Six Minutes in May

by Nicholas Shakespeare
£9.99

How did Churchill become Prime Minister instead of the obvious choice, the Foreign Secretary, Lord Halifax? In this riveting study, Nicholas Shakespeare argues that Churchill's elevation was far from inevitable, so how did he pull it off? This book reminds us that Britain's ultimate deliverance depended upon a highly unlikely, if fortuitous, sequence of events. Quite brilliant!

Greatest Hits

by Laura Barnett
£7.99

The author of the bestseller, ‘The Versions of Us’, has come out with a truly original combination of literature and music. Greatest Hits was published simultaneously with an album by singer/songwriter Kathryn Williams. They collaborated on the lyrics and when they do readings and performances, they perform together as Laura is also a musician.

The story of the tragic life of a music legend in the style of Joni Mitchel or Carole King is told in chapters headed by the lyrics of one of each of the songs on the album. I enjoyed this on many levels. It introduced me to the music of Kathryn Williams.

by Cynthia d’Aprix Sweeney

Reading The Nest feels like welcoming home some estranged members of one's family. You get as easily attached to the Plumbs as you get annoyed with them. You will pity them, loathe them, laugh at (or with) them and love them. The Nest is also a brilliant depiction of contemporary US and the city of New York is as important a character as the rest of this not so very unusual family.

This book was the subject of a 10-way bidding war when it first arrived on the publishing scene and thankfully it lives up to the hype.

Peopled with an enchantingly drawn array of characters from all sections of society, this novel is pure pleasure from start to finish. A wonderful read!
