Weer neurie die kind lispelend en vervelig herhaalde kere sy liedjie sodat Koestertjie, lamgeslaan soos sy daar staan, tot haar verbasing sien dat die slang sy bolyf laat sak totdat hy plat op die grond in al sy kronkelinge voor die kind le. n Vuil handjie word uitgestrek en net as dit aan die skubberige rug wil vat, pluk die reptiel homself weer orent en word die bak dreigend platgemaak. Dit is tog te mooi. Die laggie dawer deur die lug en dan word daar maar weer gesing. Weer bedaar die slang. Wadda van die woestyn verskyn oorspronklik in 1950. In die roman word n wit driejarige seuntjie deur Boesmans, Boogspan en sy vrou, Koestertjie, aangeneem nadat die skip waarop hy, sy tweelingboetie en hulle ouers reis byna op die rotse loop. Wadda (n verdraaiing van sy doopnaam Waldo) toon n besondere aanvoeling vir en beheer oor die plante- en dierelewe van die Namib-woestyn. Wanneer hy ouer word, word hy n leier en legende onder die inheemse bevolking. Die verhaal neem n onverwagse wending wanneer Wadda n soekgeselskap, op soek na legendariese skatte, teekom en uitvind waar hy werklik vandaan kom.

"The great Susan Wiggs writes with grace, insight and wisdom about the things that matter."-Adriana Trigiani bestselling author of The Shoemaker's Wife In this thought-provoking, wise and emotionally rich novel, New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs explores the meaning of happiness, trust, and faith in oneself as she asks the question, "If you had to start over, what would you do and who would you be?" There is a book for everything . . . Somewhere in the vast Library of the Universe, as Natalie thought of it, there was a book that embodied exactly the things she was worrying about. In the wake of a shocking tragedy, Natalie Harper inherits her mother's charming but financially strapped bookshop in San Francisco. She also becomes caretaker for her ailing grandfather Andrew, her only living relative-not counting her scoundrel father. But the gruff, deeply kind Andrew has begun displaying signs of decline. Natalie thinks it's best to move him to an assisted living facility to ensure the care he needs. To pay for it, she plans to close the bookstore and sell the derelict but valuable building on historic Perdita Street, which is in need of constant fixing. There's only one problem-Grandpa Andrew owns the building and refuses to sell. Natalie adores her grandfather; she'll do whatever it takes to make his final years happy. Besides, she loves the store and its books provide welcome solace for her overwhelming grief. After she moves into the small studio apartment above the shop, Natalie carries out her grandfather's request and hires contractor Peach Gallagher to do the necessary and ongoing repairs. His young daughter, Dorothy, also becomes a regular at the store, and she and Natalie begin reading together while Peach works. To Natalie's surprise, her sorrow begins to dissipate as her life becomes an unexpected journey of new connections, discoveries and revelations, from unearthing artifacts hidden in the bookshop's walls, to discovering the truth about her family, her future, and her own heart.

A novel of family and place and belonging. --Rebecca Makkai, Pulitzer Prize finalist Tender and suspenseful. --Chloe Benjamin, New York Times bestselling author Some places never leave you... After a disastrous summer spent at her family's home on Cape Cod when she is seventeen, Ann Gordon is very happy to never visit Wellfleet again. If only she'd stayed in Wisconsin, she might never have met Anthony Shaw, and she would have held onto the future she'd so carefully planned for herself. Instead, Ann ends up harboring a devastating secret that strains her relationship with her parents, sends her sister Poppy to every corner of the world chasing waves (and her next fling), and leaves her adopted brother Michael estranged from the family. Now, fifteen years later, her parents have died, and Ann and Poppy are left to decide the fate of the beach house that's been in the Gordon family for generations. For Ann, the once-beloved house is forever tainted with bad memories. And while Poppy loves the old saltbox on Drummer Cove, owning a house means settling, and she's not sure she's ready to stay in one place. Just when the sisters decide to sell, Michael re-enters their lives with a legitimate claim to a third of the estate. He wants the house. But more than that, he wants to set the record straight about what happened that long-ago summer that changed all of their lives forever. As the siblings reunite after years apart, their old secrets and lies, longings and losses, are pulled to the surface. Is the house the one thing that can still bring them together--or will it tear them apart, once and for all? Told through the shifting perspectives of Ann, Poppy, and Michael, this assured and affecting debut captures the ache of nostalgia for summers past and the powerful draw of the places we return to again and again. It is about second homes, second families, and second chances. Tender and compassionate, incisive and heartbreaking, The Second Home is the story of a family you'll quickly fall in love with, and won't soon forget.

When Mariel asks Sara to stand in for a bridesmaid who has to cancel at the last minute, Sara realizes it's the perfect cover to unravel the nuptials and win Carter back. Sara begins to slowly sabotage Mariel's picture-perfect wedding, but when she crosses paths with David Cole, he challenges her self-image as the jilted second-fiddle to her spotlight-stealing sister.

Tunku Varadarajan, The Wall Street Journal 'This is a charming and uplifting book' Piers Morgan Seventeen-year-old schoolboy Kim is an idle drifter at one of Britain's most extraordinary institutions, Eton College - crammed with over a thousand boys and not a girl in sight. His head is full of the Falklands War and a possible army career, until the day he hears his new piano teacher, the beautiful but pained India, playing Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier. Kim's life is destined never to be the same again. An intensely passionate affair develops and he wallows in the wild and unaccustomed thrill of first love. Twenty-five years on, Kim recalls that heady summer and how their fledgling relationship was so brutally snuffed out - finished off by his enemies, by the constraints of Eton, and by his own withering jealousy. The Eton Affair is the bittersweet story of a life-changing love.
