Man At The Helm

Author:

Nina Stibbe

Synopsis:

Not long after her parents' divorce, heralded by an awkward scene involving a wet DAILY TELEGRAPH and a pan of cold eggs, nine-year-old Lizzie Vogel and her sister and little brother are packed off to a small, slightly hostile village in the English countryside. Their mother is all alone, only thirty-one years of age, with three young children and a Labrador. It is no wonder that she becomes a menace, a drunk - and a playwright. Worried about the bad plays - though more about becoming wards of court and being sent to the infamous Crescent Home for Children - Lizzie and her sister decide to contact, by letter, suitable men in the area. In order to stave off the local social worker they urgently need to find someone to be the new man at the helm.

Paradise Lodge

Author:

Nina Stibbe

Synopsis:

It's 1977, and fifteen-year-old Lizzie Vogel is working in an old people's home. The place is in chaos, and it's not really a suitable job for a schoolgirl - she'd only gone for the job because it seemed too exhausting to commit to being a full-time girlfriend or a punk. She's also distracted by her family's financial troubles, keeping up with schoolwork, and deciding which brand of shampoo to use. When a rival old people's home opens, offering better parking and daily 'chairobics', business at Paradise Lodge takes a turn for the worse, and everyone must chip in to save the home before it's too late - from the crazed Matron, to the assertively shy nurse who only communicates via little grunts, to the very attractive son of the Chinese takeaway manager...

Kitchens Of The Great Midwest

Author:

J. Ryan Stradal

Synopsis:

When Lars Thorvald's wife, Cynthia, disappears to start a new life in Australia, he's left to raise their baby, Eva, on his own. He's determined to pass on his love of food to her, starting with pureed pork shoulder (as the doctor reckons that carrot cake with nuts at four months isn't such a good idea). As Eva grows, she finds her solace and salvation in the flavours of her native Minnesota. From Scandinavian lutefisk to hydroponic chocolate habaneros, each ingredient represents one part of Eva's transformation from a gangly, impoverished girl to the master chef of a legendary and secretive pop-up supper club. Along the way, the people she meets shape her - and she, them - in ways unforgettable, riotous and profound.

Shifting Colours

Author:

Fiona Sussman

Synopsis:

'This is the first memory I have of my mamma, the first sweet memory. Sometimes her laughter bursts into my head and I hear her call me - my name full and round in her mouth.

Set against the violent backdrop of apartheid South Africa and then the calm of late twentieth century Britain, the novel traces the lives of Celia and Miriam- a mother and daughter separated by land, sea and heart-rending circumstances.
