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 £1000 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.

Led By The Nose from the Author: Jenny Joseph. Not since Laurie Lee or Flora Thompson has a writer captured the smells and moods of the English countryside in the manner of Jenny Joseph's Led By The Nose. The nation's favourite poet has tended her “rural slum” in the Cotswolds for decades and her calendar of a year in her garden grows into an evocation of a personality that is uniquely literary, often leading the reader off her garden path with the sharply sly humour of her famous old woman who wears purple. Jenny Joseph's memoir of a year in her garden through the sense of smell captures the feel of each month, as well as the flow of the gardening year (the chores to be done, the joy as your garden blossoms). The calendar of a year in her garden displays a personality that is eccentrically loveable, a wilful personality with her own individual outlook on life. The book's unfolding of Jenny Joseph's personality is just one of its many delights. Jenny Joseph focuses on the sense of smell, powerfully evoking memories and images that only a writer of her originality and perception could capture in the full range of thoughts and feelings a garden can stir in us. As one critic has said of Jenny Joseph's work: “Her back garden, like Emily Dickinson's, has room for most of what one can imagine about the world.” Led By The Nose has the unconventional viewpoint, sensual awareness and sharpness of observation to make it a classic of English writing.

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.
