A Bunch Of Sweet Peas from the Author: Henry Donald. In 1911, in the Scottish Border village of Sprouston, the young parish minister wrote to the Daily Mail for entry forms for its sweet pea competition.The top prize was a staggering ÂŁ1000 and organisers predicted that as many as 15,000 would enter. He could not foretell that the paper's estimate of the number of competitors would be more than doubled, or that a fortnight before the deadline a nation-wide drought would threaten the very existence of the sweet peas he was so painstakingly cultivating. This touching - and beautifully illustrated - tale is based on a true story.

A New Beginning from the Author: Samantha Arran. Love Never Fails began when twenty-seven-year-old Metropolitan Police Commander Amanda Dansie, on a drugs case, was unexpectedly attacked. Her right knee was shattered by a bullet and four members of her team were killed. Four years previously she had blamed Colonel Mark Young for negligence when her fiancé, whom she had known for twenty years, was killed with two of his colleagues in an explosion in Afghanistan. She had forbidden Mark to come to Andrew's funeral service. After she and her team were attacked, she realized how wrong and unfair she had been to Mark. She came to Derbyshire to recuperate with the intention of contacting him to ask his forgiveness. Unknown to her, when his time was up in Afghanistan, by virtue of his army training and expertise he has joined the Derbyshire police as an Inspector. However, Amanda eventually contacted him and they met a few days before Mark was promoted to Chief Superintendent. They fell in love. When her aunt, Contessa Sophie Gambetti, died, Amanda inherited her fortune, and she had already bought Amanda a twenty-bedroom manor house in Derbyshire. Amanda and Mark married; and they had twins then triplets. Love Never Fails ended with Amanda giving birth to Luca.

Paternity from the Author: Hugh Ross. So what are your choices today? John Grisham or Patricia Cornwell. I sense you nudging towards Grishers while your lady friend is sounding off about the finer qualities of the trials and tribulations of Kay Scarpetta. Well, take her hand and lead her to a brave new world-amateur writing in its most mediocre form. A novel about pregnancy, short tempers, irritating husbands, late trains, lesbian midwives, crazy Grandads, ante natal classes, groins, beautiful children, Jerry Springer and internal audit. Need I say more? Anyway, this could be the start of something big. Probably won't be but never mind. At the very least you could use this as one example of the cool underground artists you like to refer to at dinner parties while everyone else looks blankly back at you. If that doesn't work then there's always that shelf in the kitchen which needs propping up. So be it art, DIY or the odd laugh you might be looking for, take a chance; you might enjoy it and you'd certainly make my day!
