Unlikely family and unexpected friendship come together in New York Times bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand's newest novel set against the sun and sand of island life. 'The queen of the summer novel' (People) Laurel Thorpe, Belinda Rowe and Scarlett Oliver share only two things in common: a love for the man they all married, celebrity chef Deacon Thorpe, and a passionate dislike of one another. When Deacon shockingly takes his own life, the women must come together in order to see out his final wish: to have his whole dysfunctional family - wives, children and all - return to his favourite place on earth, the idyllic eastern bluff of Nantucket. But with everyone under one roof, putting differences aside will be no simple feat. Each wants to claim a special place in Deacon's life. And yet, as certain secrets are revealed and confidences shared, improbable bonds will begin to form, as this unlikely family says goodbye to the man they loved.

Carla Kelly wants to tell the truth, to discard myths about the U.S. Army during the Indian Wars. This collection of nine stories set in the era of the frontier army gives an entertaining and educational glimpse into a world not often explored in fiction. “Kathleen Flaherty’s Long Winter” weaves a tale of an Irish woman who has no choice but to marry a man she barely knows after the death of her husband leaves her penniless. She struggles with isolation and the cruelty of the others in the fort because of her rapid marriage. In the end, hers is a story of loss, love, and survival. But these are not all love stories. In “Mary Murphy” one soldier reflects about the hard life of a laundress. “A Season for Heroes” tells of a buffalo soldier named Ezra Freeman, a true hero to one officer’s family. The collection concludes with “Jesse MacGregor.” The narrator, John, looks back on an Apache attack in the desert. After his detail’s captain is killed and John is injured, authority falls to surgeon Jesse MacGregor. The account of their struggle to fight hunger, thirst, the elements, and of course, the Apaches, is mesmerizing. Kelly does not leave comedy out of her collection. “Fille de Joie” is a charming story of a married couple reunited after an almost two-year separation. The wife is arrested after the two make too much noise during their afternoon tryst. She is charged with being a fille de joie, and the comedy ensues. Kelly’s work will find an audience among those interested in feminist literature, American history, fiction, and nonfiction.

Here’s To Our Far-Flung Empire is a fascinating and highly entertaining account of 17 unforgettable years of conflict and comradeship, war and romance, adventure and excitement around the world. Tony Orchard was a product of the British Empire at a time when Great Britain's rule across an empire that stretched from India to Singapore and Jamaica to Borneo was fast fading into history. His father had lived and worked in British India and was sent to Mombasa in British Kenya to start a subsidiary of Shell Oil. According to the comedian Tommy Trinder, Britain’s far-flung empire hadn’t been flung far enough. Without the outbreak of World War 2 and the evacuation of British forces at Dunkirk, Tony Orchard would probably never have had the chance to explore the truth of this for himself. In 1940, with the enemy at the gate, he was one of thousands of youngsters who were packed up from boarding school and sent off for their own safety to join their parents working overseas. As a result he spent a tempestuous 17 years travelling the world, with schooling in Calcutta and Durban, adventures in the South Seas serving with the Royal Navy and an eventful post-war sales career with Quaker Oats, selling flour to customers from Canada and the USA to the Caribbean, the Congo and East Africa. It wasn’t until he married a Danish girl and settled down back in England that he finally managed to stay under the same roof for more than three years.
