Grief's Bounty by Sandy...

“I needed to understand that sudden and intense link between grief and passion: the centrality of sexuality to affirming the life of the living.”

 

A searingly honest account of how, for Sophie, grief becomes a powerful catalyst for healing the past, unleashing the full force of her mid-life female sexuality and directing her to a new life. She emerges from the ashes of her grief with a strengthened identity and deeper understanding of both herself and family.

Primal Night by Maja Kriel

That was how it had been with her marriage.

Say ‘yes’ and the road would take you. Say ‘yes’, say ‘yes’. The road had taken him right through to the end of his life and she had completed the circle with him.

It had been rugged in places and the tyres had worn thin. But in the end it had been a complete journey. A lifetime.

A shared incarnation. She had said ‘yes’ and travelled with him to the last breath. There is a last. She had been with him. And then her incarnation continued without him.

The Hour of Need by Sean Badal

When a twenty-nine year-old Indian immigrant arrives from Zanzibar to a cold and bleak post-war London in 1946, he hadn’t expected on finding a mummified corpse in the East End building in which he’d intended to set up shop. Unable to unravel the mystery of the corpse and fearful for his future, he hatches fantastical plans to get rid of it, with unexpected consequences.

He hadn’t planned on romancing the dead man’s nice niece either…

To the Ancient Land by...

Theodor, the eighty-five year old protagonist in this engaging short novel, writes of his early years in Johannesburg in the 1930s and 1940s.

The story begins as he remembers how his journey began. It ends with his arrival in the fledgling Israeli state to serve his ancient homeland as a soldier-farmer on an outlying kibbutz. But the main focus is reserved for the often funny and always ironic accounts of the childhood and youth of an intelligent Jewish boy growing up in a dusty mining town in Africa.

Warring Souls: When...

Warring Souls shows what happens when religious faith is governed by ethical passion ̶ and when it isn’t. It is the story of conflict between 35-year old Sarah Williams, the radical Professor of Christian Ethics at the fictitious St Mark’s College near George, and Dr Gerald Meyer, the recently-appointed and staunchly evangelical vicechancellor, together with their supporters. The story takes place in the first semester of 2006.
