The new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author.
Ruth has returned to Edinburgh after many years of exile, left rootless by the end of her marriage, career and now the death of her father, from whom she had long been estranged. She is faced with the daunting task of clearing his house, believing he had removed all traces of her mother. Yet hidden away in a barely used top-floor room, she finds he had secretly kept a cupboard full of her possessions. Sifting through the ancient papers, Ruth discovers the diary and letters written by her ancestor from the eighteenth century, Thomas Erskine.
Goodreads rating 4.44/5
The New World Rising trilogy continues with this immersive, atmospheric adventure set in Florence and southern Spain in the last decades of the 15th century, when everybody wants a piece of the pie they except Christopher Columbus to discover when he sets sail. Beautifully, elegantly written as you’d expect from Robyn Young.

From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.
Hercule Poirot, the world’s greatest detective, nest-ce pas? Enigmatic, eccentric and extremely intelligent, Hercule Poirot cracks the toughest cases with brainpower alone, endearing himself to thinkers everywhere. Epitomising Agatha Christie’s Poirot, David Suchet stars as the dapper and debonair Belgian detective with an eye for deadly detail, outsmarting both the criminals and his cohorts in and around elegant upper-crust London.
Titles include: FIVE LITTLE PIGS, SAD CYPRESS, DEATH ON THE NILE, THE HOLLOW
It was Children’s Book Week and this year’s theme was Find Your Treasure. Not only is it a catchy theme but it is absolutely spot on.
As many of us can attest, there are so many fabulous reading gems out there to be discovered.
Established in 1945, the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) is a volunteer run, not for profit organisation which aims to engage the community with literature for young Australians.
Each year the CBCA develops a list of notable books to bring to the public’s attention and enhance reading experiences for young people.
Numerous studies have shown the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories with babies and children of all ages.
It assists with the development of early language, pre-reading skills, listening skills and comprehension, igniting little neurons in your child’s brain.
The Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research study proves a causal effect between the frequency of reading to a child and his or her development.
Children who are read to six to seven days a week are almost a year ahead of those who are not being read to. These are significant finds as to the positive effects of reading to your child.
Children’s Book Council of Australia book selection has some outstanding books such as Swan Lake by Anne Supdvilas with breathtaking illustrations, a beautifully illustrated picture book and some fantastic adventures like The Great Rabbit Chase by Freya Blackwood and her cute pet rabbit who likes to escape.
Some notable books in the young reader section are The Shop at Hoopers Bend by the renowned Australian Emily Rodda and How to Bee by Bren MacDibble, a beautifully written tale of belonging.
Any of the recommended CBCA titles would be great to share with your child or if they are independent readers there are some great titles to introduce them to.
Shire of Dardanup Libraries have a selection of the CBCA titles on order but we can also access any from the list through the One Library System.
So come on in for Children’s Book Week and Find Your Treasure at the library.
