    Set amongst the Huguenot silk weavers of Spitalfields in the late 18th century, it follows Esther Thorel as she rescues Sara Kemp from working in a brothel. Sara is not convinced being a maid is much better than a hooker but could not turn down the chance to escape her grasping 'madam'...

    A.J. Pearce's debut novel Dear Mrs Bird is a funny and warming read that will take you back to London in 1940.

    Emmeline Lake and her best friend Bunty are trying to stay cheerful despite the Luftwaffe making life annoying for everyone. Emmy wants to become a Lady War Correspondent and seizes her chance when she spots a job advertisement. But after some crossed wires, she actually ends up typing letters for Henrietta Bird, the notorious agony aunt of Woman's Friend magazine.

    Mrs Bird has very clear rules: letters containing any form of unpleasantness are to be binned immediately. Emmy starts off by dismissing the problems of lovelorn readers, but eventually the thought of desperate women's questions and pleas going unanswered is too much and she decides it's the right thing to secretly write back...

    Praised by the likes of John Boyne, Marian Keyes and Annie Barrows, this charming read will warm your heart. It's a tribute to the strength of female friendship, the kindness of strangers and the art of letter writing. The time it's set in also makes it a celebration of the incredible Blitz spirit.

    Ulysses, one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century, has had a profound influence on modern fiction. In a series of episodes covering the course of a single day, 16 June 1904, the novel traces the movements of Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus through the streets of Dublin. Each episode has its own literary style, and the epic journey of Odysseus is only one of many correspondencies that add layers of meaning to the text. Ulysses has been the subject of controversy since copies of the first English edition were burned by the New York Post Office Authorities. Today critical interest centres on the authority of the text, and this edition, complete with an invaluable Introduction, notes, and appendices, republishes for the first time, without interference, the original 1922 text.

    The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles writer Gavin Scott's post-World War II murder mysteries starring Duncan Forrester are pacy and page-turning. We'd recommend them for fans of Frederick Forsyth, John Buchan and Jack Higgins.

    The Age of Treachery is set in 1946 and finds former Special Operations Executive agent Duncan Forrester back at his Oxford college as a junior Ancient History Fellow. However, his peace is shattered when an unpopular Fellow is found dead. A don is suspected and arrested but Forrester is unsure the police have the right person. He soon finds himself on the hunt for a killer that involves lost Viking sagas and satanic rituals...

    The Age of Olympus finds Forrester's research on an Aegean island being interrupted by the murder of a British archaeologist and the outbreak of the Greek Civil War - and the worship of ancient gods may just provide a clue to the killer; and The Age of Exodus finds Britain's new Labour government struggling to cope with the break-up of the Empire in 1947 when a grisly murder takes place in the British museum and terrorists target the British foreign secretary...
