Through his deeply poetic and wildly provocative tale of personal transformation, Scott Stillman takes us on a spiritual journey, away from a chaotic world of details, obligations, smartphones and noisy machines, to a place that is unspoiled, untamed, free. <br /><br />Mostly solo, he guides us deeply into American Wilderness. There is heart-wrenching beauty. Undeniable presence. In the cracks and fissures of the Earth we uncover timeless wisdom, ancient magic, and a Gateway to the Soul. Here we learn who we truly are. Beneath all the layers, the labels, the stories, the myths. <br /><br />Come on in. The door is wide open. To all who wish to wander.

‘<b>Made me cry so many times … A beautiful, heartbreaking yet uplifting wonderful story</b>.’ <i>This Chick Reads</i><br /><br /><b>A year to forget. The perfect escape. And a little Christmas magic…</b><br /><br /><b>Touching, uplifting, and filled with delicious French cooking, <i>The French for Christmas</i> is the perfect Christmas treat.</b><br /><br /><b>Evie used to LOVE Christmas</b>, but this year she can’t wait for the tinsel and presents to be a distant memory. <br /><br />When her best friends offer the use of their cottage in the beautiful French countryside, Evie jumps at the chance. With her soon-to-be-ex-husband, celebrity chef Will Brooke, plastered over the news with his latest ‘love interest’, leaving the country seems like the perfect plan.<br /><br />Armed with her French grandmother’s tattered notebook of recipes, Evie is determined to ignore Christmas altogether and bake herself back to happiness. <br /><br />And when Evie meets her next-door neighbour – the <i>très</i> gorgeous doctor Didier she finds a very willing taste-tester. But is it possible that he could be interested in more than just her <i>Tarte Tatin</i>? <br /><br />With snow falling, a special <i>Réveillon</i> dinner and a little Christmas magic in the air, could Didier even be the one to thaw Evie’s heart? <b>Or will a visit from the ghost of Christmas past change everything?</b><br /><br /><h2>What people are saying about The French for Christmas</h2><br />‘So <b>very real, so tragic, my heart absolutely ached</b> … A <b>heart-warming and truly beautiful</b> Christmas book.’ <b>5/5</b> <i>Paris Baker’s Book Nook</i><br /> <br />‘<b>One of my favourite stories I have read this year… A truly superb novel. 5/5</b>.’ <i>Chloe’s Chick Lit Reviews</i><br /><br />‘<b>A truly wonderful novel</b> … touching, inspiring and heart-warming … <b>an absolute must on your holiday reading list. 5/5 Stars.</b>’ <i>Living Life with Joy</i><br /><br />‘<b>Just beautiful</b> … I was transported to a Christmas wonderland and I didn't want to leave! <b>Absolutely loved it!</b>’ <i>Becca’s Books</i><br /><br />‘A winner … <b>I want to live this story</b>.’ <i>A Nurse and a Book</i><br /><br />‘I love Fiona Valpy's French countryside stories ... <b>The setting is wonderful and the snow and winter weather give it a fairytale like atmosphere … such a lovely Christmas story</b>.’ <i>Librarian Lavender</i><br /><br />‘<b>Beautiful descriptions of the idyllic French house and area … mouth-watering descriptions of the beautiful food</b> … a wonderful Christmas read. It has everything you could want from a book for this time of year.’ <i>Best Crime Books and More</i><br /><br />‘<b>I found myself talking out loud, muttering and cursing</b> … Fiona had given me <b>characters that I had connected with, that had strength and depth who I found I really cared about</b>.’ <i>Crooks on Books</i><br /><br />‘<b>This book made me cry</b> … Another great and emotional read with Christmas cheer, Christmas spirit.’ <i>French Village Diaries</i><br /><br />‘Truly idyllic … everything we love about the Christmas season. <b>A beautiful read!</b>’ <i>M’s Bookshelf</i><br /><br />‘I <b>absolutely adored</b> this charming, thought provoking story… I<br />felt really Christmassy reading this!

Fans of <b>Katie Fforde</b>, <b>Carole Matthews</b>, Victoria Connelly or Erica James – and everyone who enjoyed Nick Alexander’s <i>The French House</i> – will love Fiona Valpy.<br /><br /><b>Five weddings. The perfect venue. One little hitch…</b><br /><br />Leaving the grey skies of home behind to transform a crumbling French Château into a boutique wedding venue is a huge leap of faith for Sara. She and fiancé Gavin sink their life savings into the beautiful Château Bellevue – set under blue skies and surrounded by vineyards in the heart of Bordeaux.<br /><br />After months of hard work, the dream starts to become a reality – until Gavin walks out halfway through their first season. Overnight, Sara is left very much alone with the prospect of losing everything.<br /><br />With her own heart breaking, Sara has five weddings before the end of the season to turn the business around and rescue her dreams. With the help of the locals and a little French <i>courage</i>, <b>can she save Château Bellevue before the summer is over?</b><br /><br /><h2>What people are saying about <i>The French for Always</i></h2><br />‘This was set in the gorgeous French countryside which, itself, was another character in the novel, <b>I honestly felt like I was there drinking in the sunshine, the atmosphere and the wine!</b> The description in this book was just beautiful full on wonderful metaphorical language and adjectives that tasted wonderful in the mouth!<br /><br />Overall this novel would be <b>a lovely summer read</b>, you will feel the heat emanating off the page and so will definitely put you in the mood for barbecues and a glass of wine or two alfresco. This is a stand along novel, so if you haven't read anything from this author before, it would be a great introduction to her <b>lovely writing!</b>’ <b>4/5</b> <i>Fabulous Book Fiend</i><br /><br />‘<b>I fell in love with this novel</b> as soon as I had read the first few pages. I am a sucker for any story that in one way or another has to do with weddings, but I have to admit, I’m not a particular fan of France. Yet, the descriptions of Chateau Bellevue, the surroundings, the small village and its inhabitants... I loved it and <b>the whole atmosphere in the novel immediately made it feel like summer, even though it was raining where I was!</b> The main character, Sara, was easily likeable and I felt myself rooting for her and her wedding business, especially after her fiancé Gavin decides to leave her and she suddenly has to set up the business on her own. Luckily, Sara is surrounded by a great cast of supporting characters, including the trustworthy Karen and handsome and charming Thomas.<br /><br />The storyline, which revolves around Sara and her attempts to save Chateau Bellevue, was really enjoyable, especially because of the five weddings that are organised at the venue while the story enfolds. Each of the weddings featured a specific couple, all of them different from one another with their own background. <b>Fiona Valpy’s writing is great; well-paced, detailed, and captivating</b>, and I definitely look forward to reading more of her work in the future. ‘The French for Always’ is a wonderfully warm and thoroughly enjoyable read, and <b>definitely the book to pick up if you are looking for your first taste of summer!’ 9.5/10</b> <i>Spoonful of Happy Endings</i>

THE LOVE IN PROVENCE CHARACTERS ARE BACK ...<br /><br />Everything was going so well in Kat and Philippe’s life together. Then suddenly it wasn’t.<br /> <br />Roman ruins delayed the work on the Villa des Violettes. The Russian drug gang might be back in the neighbourhood. On top of that, Kat had worked herself into what Molly classified as a full blown “Christmas conundrum.” Kat wanted the holidays to work perfectly as she blended a Canadian Christmas with a Provençal Fête de Noêl for the first time in their new home. Now she’d lost her confidence and, with it, the holiday spirit. <br /> <br />Philippe hoped a weekend trip to the famous Christmas markets of Strasbourg would solve everything.<br /> <br />As it happened, things were about to get worse.

<p>Veteran Sunday Times war correspondent, Marie Colvin was killed in February 2012 when covering the uprising in Syria.</p><p><em>On the Front Line</em> is an Orwell Special Prize winning journalism collection from veteran war correspondent Marie Colvin, who is the subject of the movie A Private War, starring Rosamund Pike and Jamie Dornan.</p><p>Marie Colvin held a profound belief in the pursuit of truth, and the courage and humanity of her work was deeply admired. On the Front Line includes her various interviews with Yasser Arafat and Colonel Gadaffi; reports from East Timor in 1999 where she shamed the UN into protecting its refugees; accounts of her terrifying escape from the Russian army in Chechnya; and reports from the strongholds of the Sri Lankan Tamil Tigers where she was hit by shrapnel, leaving her blind in one eye.</p><p>Typically, however, her new eye-patch only reinforced Colvin’s sense of humour and selfless conviction. She returned quickly to the front line, reporting on 9/11, Afghanistan, Iraq, Gaza and, lately, the Arab Spring.</p><p>Immediate and compelling, On the Front Line is a street-view of the historic events that have shaped the last 25 years, from an award-winning foreign correspondent and the outstanding journalist of her generation.</p>

Dear Bob and Sue is the story of our (Matt and Karen Smith) journey to all 59 U.S. National Parks. We wrote the book as a series of emails to our friends, Bob and Sue, in which we share our humorous and quirky observations. It is at times irreverent, unpredictable and sarcastic, all in the spirit of humor. We describe a few of our experiences in each park but do not provide an exhaustive overview of each experience or park. We did not intend for this book to be a travel guide nor a recommendation for how to visit all 59 of the U.S. National Parks although many readers have said they’ve found it to be a useful guide. Rather, it is our story about how we did it.<br /><br />If you enjoy quirky humor set in the magnificent U.S. National Parks, this book may be for you. If you are looking for eloquent descriptions of the natural beauty we encountered or detailed descriptions of every activity you can do in each park, there are many other books available where you can find that information. All that said, many readers have commented that it’s “laugh out loud” funny and a light-hearted glimpse of our journey through the parks. <br /><br />Some have voiced concerns about the language we used in the book. We are not entirely sure which are the offending words, but here are a few possible candidates. There is a point in the book where Matt suggests that one of the caves at Carlsbad Caverns National Park be named Put Your Scrotum in a Vise Cave. Another passage mentions that Matt has a low tolerance for bullshit. Still, another quotes Karen as saying that men who use a laptop while it sits directly on their lap expose themselves to the risk of “cooking their testicles.” For the sake of full disclosure, Karen’s testicle comment offends Matt as well. These are representative examples of what we feel are the most “adult” language usages in the book. If these are offensive to you, then you might re-consider whether you should read this book. We also talk about drinking beer and eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Based on comments we’ve received from readers, we should warn you about these as well.

Orange Blossom & Honey is a culinary journey across Morocco, from the souks of Marrakesh, through the Sahara, and onto the blustery shores of the Atlantic coast. In researching this book, John travelled into the heart of the High Atlas Mountains to learn the secrets of traditional lamb barbecue, then journeyed north, through the city of Fes, where the rich dishes of the Imperial Courts are still prepared in many homes. From here he continued on to the Rif Mountains, where rustic recipes are made with the freshest seasonal produce. From Moroccan-style paella, cooked in the painted town of Chefchaouen, to stuffed Berber breads baked in the hot desert sands, John has discovered the real food of the country, learning from the locals to reveal little-known dishes, which he then gives his modern twist. The chapters include Streetfood, Salads & Vegetables, Meat & Poultry, Seafood, Tagines and Desserts, plus there is a section of spice mixes and marinades from chermoula to harissa. With mouthwatering recipes, breath-taking location photography and John's infectious enthusiasm, this is an essential addition to every cook's collection.
