When her father walked out on her and her mother she decided relationships, love, marriage, the whole shebang, simply weren't worth the heartache. But is Cas, immoral most of the time and amoral when it comes to business, going too far with her new TV programme, Sex with an Ex? Unfeeling and unscrupulous, she ruthlessly manipulates everyone she comes into contact with. Until she meets Darren. A babe. Trouble is, he's a highly principled babe. He believes in love, marriage, fidelity and constancy, so can he believe in Cas? Is it possible the world is a better place than she imagined? And if it is - after a lifetime of playing games - is this discovery too late? 374 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Fiction; Fiction; ISBN/EAN: 9780140290660.

Gardens By The Sea, Alexandra d'Arnoux, Erica Lennard and Bruno de Laubadere
3 Alexandra d'Arnoux, Erica Lennard and Bruno de Laubadere Gardens By The Sea
Clarkson Potter Publishers 231409 New York 2002 0609605682 / 9780609605684 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Large Book - between A4 and A3 The mix of sensuous sea air and rolling landscapes of flora and rock produce incredibly evocative gardens. Whether wild and rambling, sprouting naturally from the surrounding landscape, or a formally designed property punctuated with sculpture, oceanside gardens are infused with romance and beauty and ?lled with some of the most exceptional examples of horticultural art in the world. Author Alexandra d'Arnoux understands the pairing of the man-made and the shore. Her highly successful Family Houses by the Sea is a concert of retreat and natural splendor; here she visits, with Bruno de Laubadère and celebrated photographer Erica Lennard, talented creators and their masterful gardens along the shores of the United States, Europe, and the Mediterranean. Gardens by the Sea gives an unprecedented view of these gardens, some never before open to the public eye. With creations along the coasts of New England and California and exotic gardens in Europe, each scene is vibrant in detail. In Tunisia, we visit a garden of sand; in Rhode Island, we relax in a garden of grasses; a Buddha holds court beneath a climbing rose in Malibu; in Normandy, a tower peeks above the palms. Each garden in the book is a fresh fantasy, a trip to a very special place. Gardens by the Sea is lush with more than 250 photographs-at once poetic and striking-that set you in the midst of these inspiring places of splendor and grace, the perfect ambition for any gardener and tantalizing sanctuary for any beauty lover.

Anzac Memories: Living With The Legend, Alistair Thomson
7 Alistair Thomson Anzac Memories: Living With The Legend
Oxford University Press 236134 Melbourne 1995 0195537432 / 9780195537437 Softcover Very Good Condition The Anzac (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) legend rests upon the assumption that Australia came of age as a nation when the Anzacs landed on Gallipoli on April 25, 1915 during the First World War. This legend is integral to the Australian sense of nationhood and national character. In this highly original book, Alistair Thompson explores both the creation of the legend, and, most crucially, its effect upon those who have lived in its shadow--the survivors of the great war. Looking at the legend's changing significance for Australian politics and society, the author draws on personal interviews with surviving war veterans, as well as the official histories of Charles Bean, and the depiction of Anzacs in nineties novels and movies. 280 pages.

Now, aged just twenty-five, she stands in the position she has dreamed of -- inheriting the family business, Deravenels. Over eight hundred years old, the company is a bastion of male chauvinism and the challenge that lies ahead of Elizabeth is immense.

Cecil Williams acts as Elizabeth's mentor while navigating the treacherous corridors of power with her. But her greatest ally is her childhood friend, handsome, charming Robert Dunley. Highly intelligent, he is her match in every way -- and there is a spark between them that is impossible to resist. Yet Robert is already married. When they begin an affair it scandalises those around them. But far worse is to come!From the family seat perched high on the Yorkshire moors to the glamour of London as the twentieth century draws to a close, Elizabeth fights for her birthright and her inheritance. 423 pages.

12 Darren Williams Angel Rock
HarperCollins 235787 Australia 2002 0007128460 / 9780007128464 Softcover Very Good Condition "Angel Rock is the name of a hardscrabble town in the Australian outback, encroached upon by wilderness on all sides. So it's not hard for thirteen-year-old Tom and his four-year-old brother, Flynn, to find themselves lost, on an unfamiliar road leading to nowhere they know, night falling, no one in sight. And in the instant that Tom's attention is caught by a kangaroo lying by the side of the road - is it alive or dead? - Flynn is gone." Flynn's inexplicable disappearance weighs heavily on the small, close-knit town. But there's more: another child of Angel Rock, a girl now in her teens, is found dead, an apparent suicide, in Sydney. And when the suicide becomes known in town, the history of deep-rooted family feuds and dark, unshakable obsessions that the community has tried to bury begins to push to the surface. But it is only with the arrival of Gibson - the investigating detective from Sydney, a man given to frequent spells of drunkenness and despair - that the highly charged, intertwining questions surrounding the disappearance and the death, the silence of the townsfolk, and the mysteries of the land itself begin to be answered 311 pages.

Then Again - A Memoir, Diane Keaton

4th Estate 238339 London 2011 First Edition 0007435703 / 9780007435708 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Autobiography of the world-famous, and much-loved, actress. Best known for her role as Annie Hall in Woody Allen's film of the same name, for which she won an Academy Award for Best Actress, Keaton has had a fascinating and highly successful career, with roles in 'The Godfather', 'Reds', 'Father of the Bride', 'Something's Gotta Give' and many more. Personally Keaton has had relationships with Woody Allen, Warren Beatty, and Al Pacino - all of whom she remains in touch with today and who she will speak about in the book. Diane Keaton's mother suffered from Alzheimer's, and during the fifteen year long battle with this heartbreaking and debilitating disease, Diane began to reflect on both of their lives - their commonalities and their differences, the dreams they each realized and the dreams they deferred. Soon after her mother passed away last September, Diane started to write. The result is a memoir that is as touching, funny, and iconic as its author; an illumination of an ordinary girl's journey to become an extraordinary woman - and the defining relationship that made it all possible. Diane Keaton's Academy Award-winning career, both in front of and behind the camera, has made her a cinema legend and touchstone for a generation. 265 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs.

Sydney, Geoffrey Moorehouse
19 Geoffrey Moorehouse Sydney
A&U 239043 Australia 1999 First Edition 1865081280 / 9781865081281 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good 'No other city was born under so cruel a star, but no other city now gives the impressionable visitor such a feeling of still boundless optimism.This is the great city of Sydney, as summed up by Geoffrey Moorhouse in his brilliant history of Australia's principal metropolis.In a broad sweep he takes the reader from long before the arrival of the First Fleet loaded with convicts in 1788, to the preparation for the Olympic Games in 2000. In between he also describes and analyses the life of Sydney as we reach a new century - its aboriginal community and wealth of prehistoric art, its complex racial mix, its great sporting traditions, its cultural aspirations which produced the glorious Opera House, its crucial function as a seaport and its value to the naval strategists, its authoritarian and intolerant streak, its corruptions and mismanagements, its long political loyalty to the Australian Labor Party, its cherished rivalry with Melbourne, its generosities and its tremendous vitality, its many sensual delights.His descriptions of the Botanic Gardens, of the Royal Easter Show, of the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, of ANZAC Day, are as vivid as anything Moorhouse has ever written. But above all there is Sydney's greatest and most incomparable heirloom, its alpha and its omega - 'the most beautiful working harbour in the world'. Geoffrey Moorhouse's Sydney may be seen as a sequel to his highly acclaimed earlier books on Calcutta and New York. Drawing on a lifetime's acquaintance with great cities of the world, he concludes that Sydney represents 'our very last chance to get the urban thing more or less right'; the opportunity for a great polygot community to live together in harmony. 277 pages.
