The Teacher's Secret Author Suzanne Leal July 2016

Unlimited loans from April 1, 2020 to May 31, 2020

A popular teacher with something to hide. A new principal determined to uncover the truth. A young mother, suddenly single, who struggles to rebuild her life. A grieving daughter who must learn to face the world again. A family forced to flee their homeland and start afresh. A small town can be a refuge, but while its secrets are held, it's hard to know who to trust and what to believe. The Teacher's Secret is a tender and compelling story of scandal, rumour and dislocation, and the search for grace and dignity in the midst of dishonour and humiliation.

The Extremely Inconvenient Adventures of Bronte Mettlestone Author Jaclyn Moriarty Author Kelly Canby

Unlimited loans from April 1, 2020 to May 31, 2020

I was ten years old when my parents were killed by pirates. This did not bother me as much as you might think - I hardly knew my parents. Bronte Mettlestone's parents ran away to have adventures when she was a baby, leaving her to be raised by her Aunt Isabelle and the Butler. She's had a perfectly pleasant childhood of afternoon teas and riding lessons - and no adventures, thank you very much. But Bronte's parents have left extremely detailed (and bossy) instructions for Bronte in their will. The instructions must be followed to the letter, or disaster will befall Bronte's home. She is to travel the kingdoms and empires, perfectly alone, delivering special gifts to her ten other aunts. There is a farmer aunt who owns an orange orchard and a veterinarian aunt who specialises in dragon care, a pair of aunts who captain a cruise ship together and a former rockstar aunt who is now the reigning monarch of a small kingdom. 

The Sunday Story Club Author Doris Brett Author Kerry Cue

Unlimited loans from now to April 30, 2020

I don't talk to anyone about these feelings outside of the salon.' A book club without books. A key to the stories we all carry within us - wrenching, redemptive, extraordinary, laced with unexpected and hard-won wisdom. These are the stories that women tell each other when they gather for a deep and structured conversation - once a month in a suburban living room - about the things that really matter. They discover that life can be a heartbeat away from chaos; that bad things happen to good people; that good people do outrageous things; that the desire for transformation is enduringly human - painful and yet possible. A mother tells of the heartbreaking loss of control when her daughter develops anorexia.
