    Merrily Watkins is a country vicar and trainee exorcist - but she has to juggle these roles with being a single mother and helping to solve a local murder investigation.

    The Wine of Angels finds Merrily arriving at her new picture-postcard parish. Much like her haunted vicarage, it's something she didn't wish for. While Merrily and her teenage daughter, Jane, delve into the history of Ledwardine, they realise it's a village steeped in murderous history.

    Midwinter of the Spirit finds Merrily being offered the role of Deliverance Consultant (formerly Diocesan Exorcist). However, the role starts badly and gets no easier - a body is found in the River Wye, an ancient church is desecrated and signs of evil begin to appear in the cathedral... A Crown of Lights has a young pagan couple buying a redundant church - much to the fury of the local fundamentalist minister. As a modern witch hunt bubbles away in an isolated community on the Welsh border, Merrily is tasked with keeping a lid on the cauldron - but what she discovers will seriously test her beliefs.

    You may have seen the ITV adaptation of Phil Rickman's Merrily Watkins series, also called Midwinter of the Spirit, but we reckon you'll enjoy the books even more.

As Chitty tracks down her long-lost bodywork, the family get set for an incredible adventure...

    Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Race Against Time finds Chitty stuck in reverse - and that means the Tooting family are going on a quest through time. And they're coming face to face with a terrifying T-rex; Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Over the Moon has the Tootings stuck in 1966 and Little Harry and Chitty have both been kidnapped. There's only one thing they can do - they need to find the Potts - the family that originally built Chitty!
