From A Low And Quiet Sea

Author:

Donal Ryan

Synopsis:

An educated man and a doctor, Farouk is a Syrian refugee, escaping his homeland under cover of night with his wife and daughter for what he hopes will be a brighter future in western Europe. A young man, Lampy, recovering from his first broken heart, lives with his mother and grandfather while working in a care home. John, an elderly accountant and lobbyist, is filled with remorse over a failed relationship with a much younger woman. The refugee. The dreamer. The penitent. From war-torn Syria to small-town Ireland, three men, scarred by all they have loved and lost, are searching for some version of home. Each is drawn towards a powerful reckoning - one that will bring them together in the most unexpected of ways.

The Spinning Heart

Author:

Donal Ryan

Synopsis:

In the aftermath of Ireland's financial collapse, dangerous tensions surface in an Irish town. The collapse of Pokey Burke's construction company and subsequent disappearance of its boss, leaving employees unpaid and a housing project half-finished, send ripples throughout the entire community. As violence flares, the locals - from Pokey's foreman Bobby, simmering as he waits for his father's death, to Realtin, grimly hanging on in one of the incomplete estate's two occupied houses - face a battle between public persona and inner desires. Through a chorus of unique voices, each struggling to tell their own kind of truth, a single authentic tale unfolds.

The Thing About December

Author:

Donal Ryan

Synopsis:

Johnsey is not quite like other people. He finds it hard to fit in, especially in a small Irish community. Regularly bullied, without friends, struggling to make sense of the world around him, he is particularly vulnerable when his parents die and he is left completely alone. He also owns land - land that has now become extremely valuable - and it seems that everyone around him wants to take advantage of his innocence and force him to sell. Village bullies and scheming land-grabbers stand in his way, no matter where he turns. Set over the course of one year of Johnsey's life, THE THING ABOUT DECEMBER is a heart-twisting tale of a lonely man trying to make his way in a world moving faster than he is.

The Altogether Unexpected Disappearance Of Atticus Craftsman

Author:

Mamen Sanchez

Synopsis:

Atticus Craftsman never travels without a supply of Earl Grey and a favourite book. So when he is sent to shut down a failing literary magazine in Madrid, he packs both. A short Spanish jaunt later, he'll be back in Kent, cup of tea and smoked salmon sandwich in hand. But the five ladies who run the magazine have other ideas. They'll do anything to keep their cosy office together - even if it involves hoodwinking Atticus with flashing eyes, the ghosts of literature past, and a winding journey into the heart of Andalucia. With not the most efficient of detectives in hot pursuit, it's only a matter of time before Atticus Craftsman either falls in love, disappears completely, or - worst of all - runs out of Earl Grey.
