The bestselling author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep delivers a suspenseful and emotionally satisfying novel “infused with warmth and humor” (People) about a lifelong friendship, a devastating secret, and the small acts of kindness that bring people together. There are three things you should know about Elsie. The first thing is that she’s my best friend. The second is that she always knows what to say to make me feel better. And the third thing…might take a bit more explaining. Eighty-four-year-old Florence has fallen in her flat at Cherry Tree Home for the Elderly. As she waits to be rescued, she thinks about her friend Elsie and wonders if a terrible secret from their past is about to come to light. If the charming new resident is who he claims to be, why does he look exactly like a man who died sixty years ago? From the acclaimed, bestselling author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep, Three Things About Elsie “breathes with suspense, providing along the way piercing, poetic descriptions, countless tiny mysteries, and breathtaking little reveals…a rich portrait of old age and friendship stretched over a fascinating frame” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). This is an “amusing and heartbreaking” (Publishers Weekly) story about forever friends on the twisting path of life who come to understand how the fine threads of humanity connect us all.

It's Gonna Be a Wild Ride Ben Noble needs to do some damage control. Fast. His heart has always been in ranching, but there's no escaping the spotlight on his high-powered political family. Now the only thing that can restore his reputation is a getaway to the fresh air of Aspen, Colorado. Not to mention that the trip gives Ben a second chance to impress a certain gorgeous mountain guide. But Paige Harper is nothing like the shy girl he remembers . . . she's so much more. Paige is serious about Ben, too: seriously annoyed that the playboy cowboy is using her mountain for his PR. Once upon a time, she fell for Ben's aw-shucks charm, but the fairy tale didn't end happily. Paige doesn't intend to let down her guard again. But keeping their relationship all business and no pleasure may be harder than she thinks-especially if the moonlight, the Rockies, and a certain irresistible rancher have anything to say about it . . .

'One of the most beautiful books you will ever read' Kate Mosse 'I tore through Breaking and Mending... frank, emotional and compassionate' David Nicholls 'Powerful and moving' Nina Stibbe 'Deeply moving and thought-provoking' Nathan Filer 'Powerful, shocking and intimate' John Boyne 'The story of the struggling NHS has been told in several excellent books recently, and this is among the best. We need to listen.' Katy Guest, Guardian 'I will be buying Breaking & Mending today and you should too' Adam Kay 'Breathtaking' Christie Watson, Telegraph "A few years ago, I found myself in A&E. I had never felt so ill. I was mentally and physically broken. So fractured, I hadn't eaten properly or slept well, or even changed my expression for months. I sat in a cubicle, behind paper-thin curtains and I shook with the effort of not crying. I was an inch away from defeat... but I knew I had to carry on. Because I wasn't the patient. I was the doctor." In this powerful memoir, Joanna Cannon tells her story as a junior doctor in visceral, heart-rending snapshots. We walk with her through the wards, facing extraordinary and daunting moments: from attending her first post-mortem, sitting with a patient through their final moments, to learning the power of a well- or badly chosen word. These moments, and the small sustaining acts of kindness and connection that punctuate hospital life, teach her that emotional care and mental health can be just as critical as restoring a heartbeat. In a profession where weakness remains a taboo, this moving, beautifully written book brings to life the vivid, human stories of doctors and patients - and shows us why we need to take better care of those who care for us.

'F*cking astonishing from beginning to end ... deeply moving'. Nathan Filer, author of the Costa Prize-winning The Shock of the Fall, and The Heartland 'Poems of deep reckoning and deep talent, written with an earned authority from the edge of existence ... Raw, playful, diaristic, funny, and devastating. North has unearthed his previously hidden natural skill as poet, with a voice that is at once lyrical and philosophical, honest and musical and that possesses a startling range' Harry Man, former Poet-in-Residence at the Wordsworth Trust Who better to provide a fresh perspective on love, death and undersized footwear, than a talented, terminally-ill poet? The poems in this volume draw inspiration from a wide range of subjects, including travel, music and the sea - not to mention the experience of being diagnosed with a deadly brain tumour. At their best they have the power to re-engage lapsed poetry fans while speaking to all readers about difficult subjects with insight and honesty. 'Bile, spleen, humour, beauty. Fantastic stuff' James Cook, author of Memory Songs 'So wonderful ... some of them made me smile, but they all contain the most incredible observations. Most importantly, though, they're filled with wisdom and kindness. They're sharp and honest. They do what the very best poetry does: they help us all to feel less alone' Joanna Cannon, author of the bestselling The Trouble with Goats and Sheep, Three Things About Elsie and Breaking and Mending
