Warm Waters by George Hopewell (String Publishing) 4.5 Stars (7 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

Is the planet beginning to bite back? Warm Waters is a quirky English novel that combines love, sex, humour and philosophy in a plot that rages against the destructive influences of our modern age. Both Warm Waters and its sequel, Warm Waters - the Treacle, lead the reader with gentle humour towards a dystopian future. Zarya Waterfall is at the end of her tether. Married to unsexy, bookish Geoffrey, stifled by small-town Spaville and numbed by her conventional friends, she has nowhere to go, no one to turn to. All this is changed when she visits a local hairdresser, AIRTIME, in whose cellars, she discovers, are long-forgotten medieval baths and whose owner, Eddie, turns out to be a man of unfathomable mystery and allure. Something is happening in the cellars of AIRTIME. Something fired by the warm waters, which is bigger than her marriage, her friends, her town. Something that stirs, love, sex and fertility, as old as time itself. But the ancient waters of AIRTIME and the mystery they embody are threatened by the building of a brash new Spa. Zarya is put to the test as she begins to understand that the existence of love and the very survival of life are in jeopardy.

So What's Next!: A School Corner To Save Wildlife. (So What! Series Book 2) by G J Griffiths 4.0 Stars (26 Reviews)    Price verified 16 minutes ago

Molly Pearson is a young Biology teacher with two passions in her life: a strong commitment to protecting wildlife; and a desire to encourage the children in her classes to feel the same enthusiasm for Nature. In this book we find Molly Pearson, Robert Jeffrey's student teacher, rewilding the school's nature garden with the help of her Year 7 kids, against dramatic odds! Self-harming, arson, gang violence and teenage angst all seem to be teaming up as obstacles to block success from Molly and her class of 11 year-olds! When her class decide they would like to restore the school's neglected and vandalised nature corner her hopes are raised and challenged at the same time. The hurdles that she meets along the way will include bullied and bullying pupils, as well as the expected ones of finance and willing manpower. But leaping those fences does not prepare the ambitious Molly for a dramatic fire and the confusion of a new passion in her life, in the form of Oliver Shrimpton. Will he become that significant someone, or is he just another obstacle for her to overcome? G J Griffiths' latest novel, in the So What! series of stories, is still based firmly around the events that take place within the "walls" of Birch Green High School. It follows some of the trials and tribulations of Molly Pearson, a previous novice teacher who was mentored by Robert Jeffrey - the main character from the first book. Molly's efforts to spread the important message, about protecting wildlife and the natural environment, reflect something that has always been important to the author. Although this book is an exciting novel telling the story of schoolchildren who want to protect garden wildlife, it also contains several chapters towards the end with plenty of helpful information for lovers of nature, and who want to take a fresh look at making their garden a wildlife garden. NOTE: All 3 books in the So What! series are now available in a single Trilogy collector's edition - Paperback ISBN ...

Richard's Feet (The Heart Beneath Quartet Book 1) by Carey Harrison (Lume Books) 3.0 Stars (16 Reviews)    Price verified 16 minutes ago

'Brilliant... rivetingly entertaining... a masterly Grimm's fairy tale for adults. There are enough twists and turns for a dozen ordinary novels.' - The Daily Telegraph In the bitter spring of 1948, an Englishman walks across Soviet Germany, against a tide of refugees, searching for the woman he fell in love with before the war... He will become a lord of the underworld in a country rising from the ashes, where confidence is fast becoming a national trick, and where no one is who they claim to be. For Richard Thurgo, a man eager to reinvent himself, it is heaven on earth. Richard is presumed to be dead and buried. But to be exact, a pair of feet are dead and buried - they alone remained intact, beneath the wreckage of a crashed and burnt-out jeep. Richard is alive and ready to embrace a new identity. Faking his own death, Richard adopts a new name and career on the Reeperbahn, Hamburg's busy red-light district. As Germany prospers in the fifties and sixties so does Richard, now an influential figure in the underworld, but two threats continue to hang over him -- his own discarded identity and that of Germany's. Set in England and Germany around the time of the Second World War, Richard's Feet is a magnificent story of intrigue and obsession. It follows the adventures of an unscrupulous Englishman whose formative experiences in the Germany of the thirties, both erotic and political, draw him back there after the war. Winner of the 1990 UK Society of Writers' Encore Award and long-listed for the Booker Prize, Richard's Feet is the first in the The Heart Beneath Quartet.The second and third books are Cley and Egon. Praise for Richard's Feet "A work of near-demonic beauty, antic imagination and universal resonance - in short, the calling card of a major talent." - The San Francisco Chronicle 'A darkly comic vision of the new Europe, entirely original. Massive feats of scale and formal ingenuity... what holds the complex structure together, confirming ...

The Awakening by Edward C. Patterson (Dancaster Creative) Price verified 14 hours ago

When deep in the soul the true self stirs and arises to remove the mask; when nature overtakes art and courageously comes out of the night into the day; when the closet opens and fills the room with light -- then we have The Awakening. Capturing the heart-soaring moment when a person faces themselves and then the world -- a brave new world, which calls forth the best and heals the lies, is a momentous time. Like the first fireflies on a summer night, to share yourself with first one person; and then another, and then those closest and those furthest until the world knows -- a world fresh and new, yet dangerous, being aware that many would prefer you live the lie. But there is only one life per customer and only one awakening of the soul. If the lie persists, life withers on the vine. The Awakening is one man touching a new world expressed in verse. It's the spirit bursting onto the scene with green ecstasy. Through the sights and sound outside the closet, this work seeks nothing more than to exist - to be when we need to be. Victory over self-darkness is no mean feat. Triumph over the demons that put us down is the best triumph of all. Leaving a secret in the swamp and savoring life's new vibrancy is better. This is my Awakening in song and verse.

The Odd Women by George Gissing (e-artnow) 3.3 Stars (49 Reviews)    Price verified 16 minutes ago

The Odd Women is a Victorian novel which deals with themes such as the role of women in society, marriage, morals and the early feminist movement. There was the notion in Victorian England that there was an excess of one million women over men. This meant there were "odd" women left over at the end of the equation when the other men and women had paired off in marriage. A cross-section of women dealing with this problem are described in "The Odd Women" and it can be inferred that their lifestyles also set them apart as odd in the sense of strange.

And When the Arguing's Over...: Contemporary One Act Plays by Garry Crystal (Beat Corrida) 3.2 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 18 hours ago

And When the Arguing's Over... where will you be and what will you have achieved? People argue on a daily basis, but conflicts aren't always what they initially appear to be. Sometimes a little perception is needed to read between the lines to discover the truth. Six plays covering themes such as following the herd and selling out at work. The desire to be noticed, fiction versus non-fiction, fact versus memory and the comforting lies we tell each other and ourselves to make life a little easier. And hope - because without hope, even misguided hope, what would be the point in arguing? "The other thing about lying is that the liar is banking on two things. They are hoping that the person being lied to is gullible enough to believe the lie - and the person doesn't always have to be that gullible - and they also know the person they are lying to well enough that they know the person won't push any further, because they know the person they are lying to wants to believe the lie." - The Elephant Frowned Hecklers - A stand-up comedian is heckled on stage during a comedy festival leading to a debate on originality in art versus following the herd to obtain recognition. Appraising - A depressed employee attends a work appraisal where a character defining question is asked - would you remain in hell if the devil paid you enough? The Elephant Frowned - A journalist interviews a film director and breaks through an idealized personality to uncover truth, lies and manipulation. But what is reality and what is fiction when both have an agenda? Happily... ever... - One person wants to marry, the other doesn't. The eternal argument.
