A Silver Sun

RRP $20.99

The peaceful Languedoc life of widow Stella Rubens takes an unexpected turn when her ex-lover, the avant-garde Romanian film-maker Ivor Tedesco, decides to buy a house in her little French village in the hope of rekindling the passion and love they had for each other decades before. In the vain hope of keeping the affair secret from her expat friends and visiting grandchildren, Ivor lures Stella away for a romantic break, but she soon realises that all is not well with her ageing sweetheart, whose past comes back to haunt him in their remote hilltop hideaway.


Golden Domes And Silver Lanterns

RRP $16.99

With breathtaking illustrations and informative text, Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns magnificently captures the world of Islam, celebrating its beauty and traditions for even the youngest readers. From a red prayer rug to a blue hijab, readers will learn about a different color of the Muslim world on each spread with a young Muslim girl and her family as a guide. Sure to inspire questions and observations about world religions and cultures, it is equally at home in a classroom reading circle as it is being read to a child on a parent’s lap.


The Silver Sword

RRP $16.99

'We must get away from here . . . '

The night the Nazis take their mother away, three children escape in a dangerous scramble across the rooftops of Warsaw, where they have to learn to survive on their own. Then they meet Jan, a boy with a paperknife – the silver sword – that they recognize as belonging to their long-lost father. The sword becomes their symbol of hope as they begin the hazardous journey across war-torn Europe to find their parents.
