    Hand-picked favourites
    At 94 years old, Madge Lambert is one of the few remaining women to have served as a nurse during the Burma Campaign between 1944 and 1945. It was while working here that she met her husband, Captain Basil Lambert. The couple have a love of dance that saw them appear on a Strictly Come Dancing Remembrance Day special.

    Based on first-hand research and meetings with Madge, Robert Blair's biography celebrates their romance, explaining how they met in the most desperate of times. Joining the troopship when she was just 20 years old and not long qualified, she was based in Chittachong on the Indian border, close to a fierce battle between the Allied forces and the Japanese.

    Madge spent long and exhausting hours nursing badly injured soldiers and eventually met Basil. This is a heart-warming and poignant account of how their burgeoning romance survived the final few months of war - and has thrived ever since.

    Chris Evans

    Product Code: MDLF
    Hardback
    Hand-picked favourites
    Now he's approaching 50, Chris Evans is very much aware he's a prime candidate to be entering a 'midlife crisis'. In this book, he argues that this is completely the wrong term for this time in a man or woman's life and it's really the Golden Age.

    At 50, many people are still capable of physically doing everything they have always wanted to - and sometimes even better than before! Mentally, those approaching their 50s are also more in the know than before, but how do you make the most of this time? Here, Chris talks about taking a year out to plan to make the most of this period and enjoy a successful future.

    Wise and witty, Chris looks at the best ways to rest, the most worthwhile relaxation methods and the sleep and nutrition needed to ensure there's a happy 25 years (at least) ahead.
