After years of cruel bullying from his classmates, Peter Houghton snaps one morning, and in nineteen minutes, ten residents of the town of Sterling are dead. When the case goes to trial, the reeling town is determined to seek justice for the innocents Peter killed.

MY SISTER'S KEEPER

In all thirteen years of Anna's life, her parents have never given her a choice: she was born to be her sister Kate's bone marrow donor and she has always given Kate everything she needs.

But when Anna is told Kate needs a new kidney, she begins to question how much she should be prepared to do to save the older sibling she has always been defined by. So, Anna makes a decision that will change their family forever - perhaps even fatally for the sister she loves.

WISH YOU WERE HERE

Diana O’Toole’s life is going perfectly to plan. At twenty-nine, she’s up for promotion to her dream job as an art specialist at Sotheby’s and she’s about to fly to the Galápagos where she’s convinced her surgeon boyfriend, Finn, is going to propose.

But then the virus hits New York City and Finn breaks the news: the hospital needs him; he has to stay. But you should still go, he insists. And reluctantly, she agrees. Once she’s in the Galápagos, the world shuts down around her, leaving Diana stranded – albeit in paradise. Completely isolated, with only intermittent news from the outside world, Diana finds herself examining everything that has brought her to this point and wondering if there’s a better way to live. But not everything is as it seems...

THE BOOK OF TWO WAYS

Who would you be, if you hadn't turned out to be the person you are now? Dawn is a death doula and spends her life helping people make the final transition peacefully.

But when the plane she's on plummets, she finds herself thinking not of the perfect life she has, but the life she was forced to abandon fifteen years ago - when she left behind a career in Egyptology, and a man she loved.

Against the odds, she survives, and the airline offers her a ticket to wherever she needs to get to - but the answer to that question suddenly seems uncertain. As the path of her life forks in two very different directions, Dawn must confront questions she's never truly asked: What does a well-lived life look like? What do we leave behind when we go? And do we make our choices, or do our choices make us? Two possible futures. One impossible choice

MAD HONEY

The heart-pounding and heart-breaking number one international bestseller.

Olivia fled her abusive marriage to return to her hometown and take over the family beekeeping business when her son Asher was six. Now, impossibly, her baby is six feet tall and in his last year of high school, a kind, good-looking, popular ice hockey star with a tiny sprite of a new girlfriend.

Lily also knows what it feels like to start over - when she and her mother relocated to New Hampshire it was all about a fresh start. She and Asher couldn't help falling for each other, and Lily felt happy for the first time. But can she trust him completely?

Then Olivia gets a phone call - Lily is dead, and Asher is arrested on a charge of murder. As the case against him unfolds, she realizes he has hidden more than he's shared with her. And Olivia knows firsthand that the secrets we keep reflect the past we want to leave behind ­­- and that we rarely know the people we love as well as we think we do.

Birds of a feather

From the beginning of time - or somewhere around then - we humans have lived and worked alongside animals to really help us develop. We're talking cows for milk, horses for labour, dogs for companionship and protection, all of that jazz.

When it comes to birds and their feathers, we've also found plenty of things to make. We use feathers for lures in fly-fishing, we use them to make fletching (the tail bits of arrows), Harry Potter used feathers to write exams and do homework (though we still think a ballpoint pen would have been a lot more practical), you name it!

Now, we're not really up to fly-fishing or archery in this weather, and we certainly aren't interested in writing on parchment (again, had Hogwarts never heard of exam pads?) But a use for a feather we can really get behind (or under) is in our deal on 100% feather duvets from Duck Feather.
