Notes:
Brendan has always lived a careful, constrained life. A salesman who never liked the work, he's a man who has stayed in his marriage and his faith because it was what was expected of him. But now, having lost his job after corporate downsizing and on the cusp of 60, he finds himself scrambling to somehow stay afloat in the only Los Angeles work on offer to a man his age - driving for Uber. When one of his rides, a retired professor named Elise, asks to be dropped off outside an abortion clinic where she now volunteers, Brendan finds himself literally driving right into the virulent epicentre of one of the major issues of our time.

Publisher: Hutchinson

Note: Paris in the early Seventies. Sam, an American student, meets a woman in a bookshop. Isabelle is enigmatic, beautiful, older and, unlike Sam, experienced in love's many contradictions. Sam is instantly smitten - but wary of the wedding ring on her finger. What begins as a regular arrangement in Isabelle's tiny Parisian apartment transforms into a true affair of the heart, and one which lasts for decades to come. 'Isabelle in the Afternoon' is a novel that questions what we seek, what we find, what we settle for - and shows how love, when not lived day in, day out, can become the passion of a lifetime.

Note: It's 1961. The Burns family is celebrating yet another disastrous Thanksgiving and a 17 year-old Alice can't take it anymore. After years spent chasing the affections of the people who are supposed to love her unconditionally, Alice is beginning to realise that, though you can't choose your family, you can choose your future, and Alice sees her future far away from her dysfunctional family and the doldrums of small-town life. As she embarks on a journey that will take her through college, heartbreak, and self-discovery, Alice must learn to stand on her own two feet in the great wide open. But no matter how much distance she covers, the past is never far behind. And after years of running, Alice must stand and face the truth. Because sometimes, to move forward, we have to go back.
