    Chris Evans

    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.

  • The Last Painting of Sara de Vos

    Dominic Smith

    Product Code: LPSV
    Hardback

    Hand-picked favourites
    Written by Dominic Smith, this captivating read tells of a 17th century painting that links three lives across three continents over three centuries. In 1600s Amsterdam, Sara de Vos loses her daughter suddenly and turns to painting in her grief. She creates the artwork of a dark landscape of a girl watching an ice skater from the edge of a wood.

    In 1957 in New York, Martijn de Groot has this painting - At the Edge of a Wood - hanging above his bed. When it's stolen, he is bereft. Meanwhile, struggling art student Ellie Shipley agrees to forge the painting for a dubious art dealer. Finally, we arrive at Sydney in 2000 and Ellie is now a celebrated art historian and curator. She's curating an exhibition about the female painters of the Dutch Golden Age but then it becomes apparent the original version of this painting and her forgery are en route to the museum.

    Exhilarating from start to finish, this book is one you won't want to put down. Full of period detail and with its intriguing premise that threatens to see Ellie's life and reputation spiral out of control, it's a rewarding and elegantly written read.
