Miranda and Her Daughters By Cate Garrison
Paperback: $15.95

MIRANDA AND HER DAUGHTERS turns the Cinderella story on its head. Stepmothers traditionally get a terrible rap. Fathers and mothers--even mothers-in-law--may be good or bad, but stepmothers are... More > always "wicked." But now that blended families are almost the norm, we need to challenge the stereotype. MIRANDA addresses the issue head-on in a way that is quirky, sexy, playful and, at times,serious. It takes the storyline from the Brothers Grimm, but brings it up to date, gives it a distinctly adult flavor, and sets it between London, England, and Portland, Oregon. The tale will appeal to women--and men--who take on the difficult job of raising other people’s children, as well as their own. More, it provides the missing ‘back story’: how Cinderella’s father met his second wife, or why the new wife’s two daughters had a problem with shoes. Above all, it shows that the protagonists in most cobbled-together marriages are well-meaning, if only human.< Less

Lucy is a painter. She has everything: fame, money and reputation. She also has Oscar. At least, he has always been there. One fine day, she will do something about that. It was, as she says, hardly... More > a love affair, more a kind of marriage. Perhaps, even war-torn France is safe enough on the Oscar front. But Lucy is deceiving herself. Set before and after the second world war in London, Edinburgh, Saint-Valery-sur-Somme, Dundee and a remote village in war-time France, two painters struggle to come to terms with the casual brutality of war. A love story. Alan Kennedy’s fourth novel - a masterly account of love, loss and reconciliation. “A haunting and captivating love story. A skilfully articulated plot which holds the reader from start to finish. The exploration of the young artist’s creative imagination as she struggles to come to terms with the banal horrors of war and her own engulfing emotions.” Deborah Swallow, Märit Rausing Director, Courtauld Institute of Art.< Less

Luke was a smart guy. Luke should have known better, should have known that infinite patience, meticulous planning and a robust sense of humour were as nothing in the face of outrageous fortune. His... More > itinerary was both seamless and full of promise: Howard in Melbourne, Shoji in Sydney, onto Ben in Singapore, then home to Tomio in London for five days before Tomio flew out to Vancouver and Jimmie arrived from Hong Kong. This network was, of course, no more than the time-blessed axiom of a girl in every port reworked for its gay creator as a boy at every airport. The trip was just days ahead when, unforeseen, the accident struck. The event was to change his life and impact profoundly on the lives of his little gang. So who better to tell this story than the vivacious founder of the network? As for the accident in waiting, the suspicion that fate has interventions at its disposal when we least expect them, well, you will just have to draw your own conclusions. Luke, as you will learn, has already done so.< Less
