    Paperback
    The Sunday Times bestselling memoir about nursing from award-winning author, Christie Watson. Christie worked as a nurse for twenty years and uses her experience to create this astounding account of a profession defined by acts of care, compassion and kindness.

    We watch as she nurses a premature baby who has miraculously made it through the night, we stand by her side during her patient's agonising heart-lung transplants, and we hold our breath as she washed the hair of a child fatally injured in a fire.

    In our most extreme moments, when life is lived most intensely, Christie is with us. She is a guide, mentor and friend. And in these dark days of division and isolationism, she encourages us all to stretch out a hand.

    Paperback
    'Everything changed after Mama found Father lying on top of another woman.' Blessing and her brother Ezikiel adore their larger-than-life father, their glamorous mother and their comfortable life in Lagos. But all that changes when their father leaves them for another woman. Their mother is fired from her job at the Royal Imperial Hotel - only married women can work there - and soon they have to quit their air-conditioned apartment to go and live with their grandparents in a compound in the Niger Delta. Adapting to life with a poor countryside family is a shock beyond measure after their privileged upbringing in Lagos. Told in Blessing's own beguiling voice, Tiny Sunbirds Far Away shows how some families can survive almost anything. At times hilarious, always poignant, occasionally tragic, it is peopled with characters you will never forget.
