  • The Forgotten Summer by Carol Drinkwater

    0 out of 5
    R230.00

    Best known for her delightful memoirs about her Olive farm in Provence, The Forgotten Summer is quite a departure. The jacket misleadingly suggests a light romance, but it proves far more than that. The story is about a family in Provence, run by matriarch Clarisse. Her son, Luc is married to Jane, and the two women share a mutual dislike owing to an incident that occurred many years ago. After a tragedy happens, Jane is left with many unanswered questions regarding her husband and his family. Beautiful, atmospheric writing vividly describes the Provence setting. Suspense is cleverly created and I was drawn to discover the secrets behind these wonderful characters. There is an unexpected depth of emotion that drives the story.

  • The Girl Who Saved The King Of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson

    R255.00

    This is every bit as funny as Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared; Jonasson’s second book does not fall short of high expectations. Nombeko is a particularly gifted girl from Soweto, who, through a series of bizarre and entertaining events, finds herself pivotal in determining the fate of the King of Sweden, and maybe even the world! There is a wonderful cast of eccentric characters: three Chinese sisters, who dabble in dog-poisoning; an alcoholic South African nuclear bomb engineer; and a Swedish psychotic who has brought up his twin sons as one child – providing him with a secret weapon for the demise of the Swedish royalty. The faux-naive style is light-hearted and the satire is witty; a fun and uplifting read.
