A Room Made of Leaves – Kate Grenville


Inspired by the real life story of Elizabeth Veale, the ward of a Devon clergyman, who met and married imperious soldier John Macarthur in 1788 at the age of 21, and set sail for a New South Wales penal colony, this is historical fiction at its best. Vividly-drawn characters, a strong sense of place, and an unusually distinctive narrative voice which beautifully captures the trepidation of a young woman embarking on a harsh new life with a virtual stranger while discovering the inner strength and resolve to forge a future for herself.

Humankind: A Hopeful History – Rutger Bregman


Free postage within the UK.

A passionately argued plea for a changed outlook and a fresh evaluation of the virtues of kindness and altruism. He’s adamant that we must assume that people are good, would prefer to cooperate rather than to compete, and that trusting one other and thinking the best of one other is vital to rebuilding our economic and political future. Timely and thought-provoking.
