By Julian Fellowes

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

The brand new story from Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes, set in 1840s London.

Julian Fellowes's Belgravia is the story of a secret. A secret that unravels behind the porticoed doors of London's grandest postcode. Set in the 1840s when the upper echelons of society began to rub shoulders with the emerging industrial nouveau riche, Belgravia is peopled by a rich cast of characters. But the story begins on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. At the Duchess of Richmond's now legendary ball, one family's life will change for ever...

Little Eve

Catriona Ward
Authors:

Eve and Dinah are everything to one another, never parted day or night. They are raised among the Children, a commune of strays and orphans ruled by the mysterious patriarch, the adder. All they know is the grey Isle of Altnaharra which sits in the black sea off the wildest coast of Scotland. Eve loves the free, savage life of the Isle. She is untroubled save by her dreams; of soft arms and a woman singing. She offers her blood in the standing stones as sacrifice. Eve is convinced that she is the next adder, heir to the Isle. But Dinah longs for something other. The world is at war and cannot be kept at bay. As the solitude of Altnaharra is broken, Eve's faith and sanity fracture. In a great storm in the depths of winter, as the old year dies, she murders the Children among the standing stones. Eve dies too, while making her escape. But Dinah lives to take up the tale.Cast out, alone, Dinah must make her way through the strange world beyond the Isle. Battling grief and incomprehension she searches for her place. But Dinah cannot seem to leave Altnaharra behind. Some deep part of her does not wish to. The adder and little Eve are calling. Eve and Dinah's stories contradict and intertwine. Past and present converge, hurtling towards a devastating conclusion. Only one woman can be telling the truth. Who is guilty, who innocent? Set against the distant thunder of the First World War, this is a chilling exploration of corroding power and a lyrical journey through the reaches of the human spirit. Little Eve is a sinuous elegant thriller that will slip its coils about you and hold.

My Mad Dad

Robyn Hollingworth
Authors:
Robyn Hollingworth

'At some point the cared for become the carers; the only way to avoid this is to live alone in the wilderness. So we end up having to care for the people who had cared for us, and this isn't a shame and it isn't a tragedy and it isn't a chore. It is an honour. To be able to return the gift of love that someone bestows upon you is a gift in itself. This is a story of caring...'At the age of twenty-five Robyn Hollingworth finds herself leaving London to return home to rural South Wales. It's her old life - same teddy bears resting on her pillow, their bodies tucked under the duvet; same view of the garages behind which she'd had her first cigarette and first kiss - but so much has changed. Her father, the proud, charmingly intelligent, self-made man who made people laugh, was in the grip of early onset Alzheimer's. His brilliant mind, which saw him building power stations and literally bringing light into the lives of others, had succumbed to darkness. As Robyn settles back in the rhythms of life in the rain-soaked vast Welsh valleys, she keeps a diary charting her journey from cared-for to carer. Lyrical, poignant and with flashes of brilliant humour, My Mad Dad explores how in helping others we can heal ourselves.

Waiting for the Albino Dunnock

Rosamond Richardson
Authors:
Rosamond Richardson

'A beautiful book' Tim Birkhead, author of BIRD SENSE'A glorious, beautifully written pilgrimage into the soaring world of birds' Bel Mooney, DAILY MAILWritten by a beginner-birdwatcher with the freshness and passion of a convert, WAITING FOR THE ALBINO DUNNOCK explores the world of birds through the seasons of a single year. It describes encounters with particular birds in the landscapes of East Anglia where the author is rooted. Occasional journeys farther afield take the reader to truly wild places in the Outer Hebrides and Eastern Europe. Yet the ordinary experience of birdwatching is also far more than just that. The beauty of birds has the power to change lives, as it did the author's, and as in the case of the all-but-legendary snow leopard, it is more about the search than the result.Personal and elegiac in tone, the writing is an unusual combination of prose poems based on the actual experience of seeing a specific bird for the first time, woven with elements of science and wisdom traditions, ornithology (and its punning counterpart ornitheology), mythology and philosophy, taxonomy and history, literature and folklore, conveying the wider picture of what it means to be human in relationship to nature. WAITING FOR THE ALBINO DUNNOCK explores the degree to which wildness is embedded in the human psyche and how beauty is central to our mental and emotional wellbeing, while highlighting the careless damage we are inflicting on the natural world.
