The Oyster Catcher from the Author: Jo Thomas. Ebook bestseller The Oyster Catcher is Jo Thomas's first irresistibly feel-good novel, set on the coast of Ireland. 'A world you long to live in with characters you love' Katie Fforde Dooleybridge, County Galway: the last place Fiona Clutterbuck expects to end up, alone, on her wedding night. But after the words 'I do' have barely left her mouth, that's exactly where she is - with only her sequined shoes and a crashed camper van for company. One thing is certain: Fi can't go back. So when the opportunity arises to work for brooding local oyster farmer, Sean Thornton, she jumps at the chance. Now Fi must navigate suspicious locals, jealous rivals and an unpredictable boss if she's to find a new life, and love, on the Irish coast. And nothing - not even a chronic fear of water - is going to hold her back. Join Fi as she learns the rules of the ocean - and picks up a few pearls of Irish wisdom along the way... Glowing praise for The Oyster Catcher: 'A warm and witty debut' Carole Matthews 'A perfect pearl of a story. I loved it' Milly Johnson 'A heart-warming tale full of Celtic charm... What more could you wish for?' Ali McNamara

The Eagle And The Oystercatcher from the Author: Holly Bidgood. In April 1940, two British Destroyers sail into the harbour at TOrshavn. From that point onwards the lives of the Faroe Islanders are irrevocably altered. Eighteen-year-old Kjartan blames the war for taking away the last remaining member of his family. At the same time he is struggling with intense feelings for his best friend Orri. While they puzzle over the true identity of the herbalist who lives on the spiky slopes of the islet TindhOlmur, miraculous recoveries of the sick begin taking place all over the islands. There is one person above all others that Kjartan and Orri hope can be made well again, but when this finally seems to be happening, the war deals them its cruellest blow yet. Peopled by a cast of characters worthy of Dickens, The Eagle and The Oystercatcher resonates with evocative descriptions of the bleak landscape of the Faroe Islands, coloured by rain and snow. The author demonstrates a skilful ability to convey the everyday details of the islanders' lives. By way of Kjartan's trials and tribulations he grows from a boy into a man, through a series of long, dark winters and the hopeful promise of each spring beyond.

Animal Dreaming from the Author: Scott Alexander King. Ancient teachings suggest that we are capable of communing with the forces of nature and speaking readily to the animals, birds, reptiles, fish and even the insects. Each animal offers its own sacred teachings. When we learn the symbolic language of the animals and listen carefully to what they have to say, we can use the knowledge gained to manifest their qualities and wisdom into our own lives. ANIMAL DREAMING explores the spiritual and symbolic interpretations of over 200 native, domesticated and introduced animals, birds, reptiles and fish in Australia, offering a wealth of ancient knowledge and spiritual insight. ANIMAL DREAMING is an invaluable resource for anyone with an interest in the animal kingdom, sacred Earth Wisdom and Shamanic Lore.

The Oystercatcher from the Author: John Goss-Custard. This book reviews what is known about the behaviour and population ecology of a popular shorebird, from a scientific conservation perspective. The plight of this bird highlights the many conflicts of interest in coastal zones, between human activities such as shellfishing, land reclamation, barrage construction, and industrial pollution, and the needs of wildlife for food and suitable habitats. As well as detailing Oystercatcher natural history - including the well-known specialization in feeding technique shown by individuals - the authors use their field studies of individual variations in behaviour to produce population models. This novel approach provides tools for predicting how populations will respond to the many environmental changes to which the coastal zone is subject. It thus can play a role in coastal management schemes that seek to balance the needs of people and wildlife, and suggests that the same methods can be applied in other situtations. The volume contains fifteen well-integrated chapters by an international team of contributors, and is fully referenced.
