My Secret Sister by Lauren Westwood
MY SECRET SISTER
Two women, two secret heartbreaks…
San Francisco – Claire is living every mother’s worst nightmare. Her daughter, Jess, is suffering from a rare illness and desperately needs a bone marrow transplant. In a race against time, Claire will do anything to find the match that will save her daughter’s life.
Washington D.C. – Marianne has suffered a heartbreaking string of miscarriages and IVF failures. With her perfect life crumbling around her, she will do whatever it takes to become a mother.
Two DNA tests…
When the results of a DNA test show an unexpected relationship between Claire and Marianne, Claire must confront the darkest secrets of her past and make an impossible choice about the future.
One big lie…
Is Claire’s secret sister the answer to her prayers?
Or will she cost her everything?
Vuelta Skelter by Tim Moore
Tim Moore completes his epic (and ill-advised) trilogy of cycling’s Grand Tours.
Julian Berrendero’s victory in the 1941 Vuelta a Espana was an extraordinary exercise in sporting redemption: the Spanish cyclist had just spent 18 months in Franco’s concentration camps, punishment for expressing Republican sympathies during the civil war. Seventy nine years later, perennially over-ambitious cyclo-adventurer Tim Moore developed a fascination with Berrendero’s story, and having borrowed an old road bike with the great man’s name plastered all over it, set off to retrace the 4,409km route of his 1941 triumph – in the midst of a global pandemic.
What follows is a tale of brutal heat and lonely roads, of glory, humiliation, and then a bit more humiliation. Along the way Tim recounts the civil war’s still-vivid tragedies, and finds the gregarious but impressively responsible locals torn between welcoming their nation’s only foreign visitor, and bundling him and his filthy bike into a vat of antiviral gel.
Elodie’s Library of Second Chances by Rebecca Raisin
Everyone has a story. You just have to read between the lines…
When Elodie applies for the job of librarian in peaceful Willow Grove, she’s looking forward to a new start. As the daughter of a media empire, her every move has been watched for years, and she longs to work with the thing she loves most: books.
It’s a chance to make a real difference too, because she soon realises that there are other people in Willow Grove who might need a fresh start – like the homeless man everyone walks past without seeing, or the divorcée who can’t seem to escape her former husband’s misdeeds.
Together with local journalist Finn, Elodie decides these people have stories that need sharing. What if instead of borrowing books readers could ‘borrow’ a person, and hear the life stories of those they’ve overlooked?
But Elodie isn’t quite sharing her whole story either. As the story of the library’s new success grows, will her own secret be revealed?
A Slow Fire Burning by Paula Hawkins
IT’S THE QUIET ONES YOU HAVE TO WATCH
Three women, connected by one brutal crime.
Three women, determined to right the wrongs done to them.
Three women, with everything to hide.
When it comes to revenge, even good people are capable of terrible things.
But only one person killed Daniel Sutherland.
How long can their secrets smoulder, before they explode into flame?
