The Almond Tree from the Author: Robin Steves. A long dirt road, flanked by an orchard of blooming almond trees, is the pathway to a mysterious and magical land. The wondrous place lies somewhere deep inside the trunk of a giant almond tree. It’s a land full of danger and adventure, but more importantly, a land full of wisdom and knowledge. A battalion of celestial honeybees chases an eight-year-old boy to the entrance of this place. Joshie Levitt is mourning the loss of his parents and asking the question every human being asks about death and loss: why? A menagerie of strange creatures and unusual beings are waiting for his arrival and preparing their answers to his question. Joshie is given the keys to the city, but must first open all its gates and find all its treasures before he can return home to his grandparent’s farm. Joshie’s quest for the ultimate answer will be both exciting and dangerous, but worth the risk. The experience will change his life forever.

Under The Almond Tree from the Author: Laura McVeigh. If you lost everything you loved, how would you survive and begin again? Under the Almond Tree tells the story of one refugee family fleeing Afghanistan and the catastrophic effects of war and displacement. Fifteen year old Samar and her family are refugees, fleeing the conflict in 1990s Kabul, after the Russians and then the Taliban, turn their lives inside out. They are aboard the Trans-Siberian Express as it travels across Russia towards an uncertain future. With the help of Napoleon, the ticket collector, her beloved copy of Anna Karenina, and her family, Samar narrates the story of their epic journey away from their happy life in Kabul and everything they have known. But, as Samar's tale unfolds, and the secrets of the family are unearthed, we slowly discover that the truth is far more devastating - and more full of hope - than we could ever have imagined. Under the Almond Tree is a story of how we keep the truth from those we love, and even from ourselves, to hold on to the beliefs which underpin our lives. It's also the story of extraordinary resilience and courage, in a turbulent world where nothing can be relied upon, but everything is possible.

Almendro from the Author: Pato. Almendro is a true story about the life of the author and how so much can go so wrong in a short time. We all have dreams but how many come to pass? Laura had two. She wanted a good marriage and a happy home for the two families that tried to blend together to become one. Her second dream was to live out the Golden Years on an exotic island in the Caribbean. She got her first wish when she married Jim but he wasn’t what she wanted to believe he was. Laura got her second wish when the couple moved to that exotic island when they retired. It was here where the bottom fell out of both dreams and for Laura the struggle to survive began. Jim met Sheila before Laura ran off to Dominica with Gavin. Sheila wanted Laura’s life and everything she and Jim owned and Jim wanted to destroy his wife in any way he could. He joined forces with the psychopathic woman who betrayed him from the beginning but he was too blinded by need and revenge to see it. When Sheila realized Laura was a threat to her plan, there was only one choice to make. Get rid of Laura. Forced to live in isolation in fear for her life, Laura lived alone in the jungles of Dominica until she met the man who captured her heart and saved her life in many ways. The Afro Caribbean people took her into their care and taught her what she needed to know and gave her the strength to carry on. When Jim died mysteriously, Laura didn’t have to ask how or why. She put on her armour, picked up her sword and returned to the island she once called home. She declared war on Sheila and was willing to die to keep her dream.
