Summer At Little Beach Street Bakery

Author:

Jenny Colgan

Synopsis:

Summer has arrived in the Cornish town of Mount Polbearne, and Polly Waterford couldn't be happier. She's in love - with the beautiful seaside town she calls home, with running the bakery on Beach Street, and with her boyfriend Huckle. And yet there's something unsettling about the gentle summer breeze that's floating through town. Selina, recently widowed, hopes that moving to Polbearne will ease her grief, but Polly has a secret that could destroy her friend's fragile recovery. Responsibilities that Huckle thought he'd left behind are back, and Polly finds it hard to cope with his increasingly long periods of absence. So she sifts flour, kneads dough and bakes bread; but nothing can calm the storm she knows is coming. Is Polly about to lose everything she loves?

A Border Station

Author:

Shane Connaughton

Synopsis:

For the son of the local sergeant in an isolated Garda station on the border between Cavan and Fermanagh, life is balanced between the brooding, taciturn presence of his father, whom he loves and fears in equal measure, and the reassurance of his warm and witty mother. His world is narrowed to lakes, woods, hayfields, country lanes and the amazing characters he encounters - tinkers, drinkers, publicans, policemen, farmers and the tantalising older sister of his Protestant friend. Amidst the drumlins and bogs, the boy's imagination roams free and unfettered. And at night, lulled by the rhythm of his mother's fleecy breathing, he finds solace. But change is coming. It's time to grow up...
