Kate Remembered, A. Scott Berg
1 A. Scott Berg Kate Remembered
G.P. Putnam's Sons 242806 Australia 2003 0743206762 / 9780743206761 Hardcover Good Condition Good For more than twenty years, Katharine Hepburn imparted many of the details of her life to me suggesting that I weave them into a book - one that would appear upon her death. Sad to say, the time has come to publish that book. But I find comfort in knowing she lived a very rich 96 years; and I have tried my best to honour her wish of making the book as true to her spirit as possible - as inspiring, as loving and as fun.' Scott Berg KATE REMEMBERED is a loving tribute and a tender farewell that reveals an unusual relationship in a unique life, one fully lived - and largely according to Katharine Hepburn's own rules. More importantly, it sets down many of the stories of that life as she saw them, full of sentiments she felt should not be made public until after her death. Ultimately, this book is not only a story of the poignant final twenty years in which Scott Berg knew Katharine Hepburn, but also a tale of a great theatrical personality and the better part of the century that was the stage for her distinguished life. 370 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Biography; Biography & Autobiography; ISBN: 0743206762. ISBN/EAN: 9780743206761.

Till Debt Do Us Part: A Mother of Four, a Country Lawyer, and Their Victory Over a Bank Behaving Badly, Angela Greenwood and Catherine McKimm
3 Angela Greenwood and Catherine McKimm Till Debt Do Us Part: A Mother of Four, a Country Lawyer, and Their Victory Over a Bank Behaving Badly
Bantam Books 243115 Australia 2005 1863255613 / 9781863255615 Trade Paperback Good Condition This is the inspiring true story of Angela Greenwood, a mother of four from the NSW north coast, who mustered incredible strength to take on a high-flying legal team and one of Australia's largest banks. When Angela opened a letter by mistake from her father-in-law, it was the first she knew of a crisis that would threaten her marriage and cost her family their life savings. Over two years her husband had gambled - and lost - close to one million dollars by trading on the foreign exchange markets through the bank. Not once did the bank inform Angela that the money was disappearing from their joint account faster than her husband could withdraw it. Yet instead of crumbling, Angela found a country lawyer, herself a mother of four, and together they mounted a legal fight that took six years and made national headlines. This book is their story - an incredible tale of two women triumphing over the system, and a bank behaving badly. 240 pages. Cover has a few creases. Quantity Available: 1.

His entire family came close to losing their lives on the sea as they escaped from war-torn Vietnam in an overcrowded boat. But nothing - not murderous pirates, nor the imminent threat of death by hunger, disease or dehydration as they drifted for days - could quench their desire to make a better life in a country where freedom existed.Life in Australia was hard, an endless succession of back-breaking work, crowded rooms, ruthless landlords and make-do everything. But there was a loving extended family, and always friends and play and something to laugh about for Anh, his brother Khoa and their sister Tram. Things got harder when their father left home when Anh was thirteen - they felt his loss very deeply and their mother struggled to support the family on her own. His mother's sacrifice was an inspiration to Anh and he worked hard during his teenage years to help her make ends meet, also managing to graduate high school and then university.Another inspiration was the comedian Anh met when he was about to sign on for a 60-hour a week corporate job. Anh asked how many hours he worked. 'Four,' the answer came back, and that was it. He was going to be a comedian!The Happiest Refugee tells the incredible, uplifting and inspiring life story of one of our favourite personalities. Tragedy, humour, heartache and unswerving determination - a big life with big dreams. Anh's story will move and amuse all who read it 367 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Michael Joseph 241413 Australia 2013 192190139X / 9781921901393 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition It takes something special to be a bush nurse working in rural and remote Australia. They patch people up and keep them alive while waiting for the doctor to arrive, they drive the ambulances, operate the clinics and deliver the babies. They are on call around the clock and there are no days off. All this with no back-up and while working in some of the most isolated places on the planet. To get the job done, bush nurses often have to make do with whatever is at hand (think, transporting patients via wheelbarrows, stemming bleeding with their bare hands, etc.), but their trademark passion, resourcefulness and sense of humour see them through the tough times. Some of these stories will raise the hairs on the back of your neck, others will make you laugh and some will make you cry. But there's no doubt you'll be amazed at the strength of character and the skill of these nurses who are the backbone of medical practice in rural and remote Australia. 292 pages.

Escape, Caroline Jessop with Laura Palmer
15 Caroline Jessop with Laura Palmer Escape
Viking / Penguin 237388 Australia 2008 0670917214 / 9780670917211 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition When she was eighteen years old, Carolyn Jessop was coerced into an arranged marriage with a total stranger: a man thirty-two years her senior. Merril Jessop already had three wives. But arranged plural marriages were an integral part of Carolyn's heritage: She was born into and raised in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), the radical offshoot of the Mormon Church. Over the next fifteen years, Carolyn had eight children and withstood her husband's psychological abuse and the watchful eyes of his other wives, who were locked in a constant battle for supremacy. Carolyn was miserable for years and wanted out, but she knew that if she tried to leave and got caught, her children would be taken away from her. But in 2003, Carolyn chose freedom over fear and fled her home with her eight children. Escape exposes a world tantamount to a prison camp, created by religious fanatics. Against this background, Carolyn Jessop's flight takes on an extraordinary, inspiring power. She became the first woman ever granted full custody of her children in a contested suit involving the FLDS, and in 2006, her reports to the Utah attorney general on church abuses formed a crucial part of the case that led to the arrest of its notorious leader, Warren Jeffs. 413 pages.

Pay It Forward, Catherine Ryan Hyde
17 Catherine Ryan Hyde Pay It Forward
Simon & Schuster 242515 New York 2014 Fifteenth Anniversary Edition 1476796386 / 9781476796383 Softcover Near Fine Condition An immediate bestseller when first published, Pay It Forward captured hearts all over the world, became a wildly popular film starring Kevin Spacey and Helen Hunt, and spawned a generation of increased altruism. This anniversary edition includes a new introduction by the author. It takes an inspiring and moving tale of a young boy who believed in the power of kindness and brings it to a new generation of readers. Twelve-year-old Trevor McKinney accepts his social studies teacher's challenge: come up with a plan to change the world. His idea is simple: Do a good deed for three people and ask them to "pay it forward" to three others in need. He envisions a vast movement of kindness and goodwill spreading beyond his small California town and across the world. The project, however, appears to falter. Jerry, a bum who receives some allowance money from Trevor, returns to a life of dissolution. Trevor wants his pretty, hardworking mother--a woman who raised him lovingly despite struggles with alcoholism--to marry his teacher, Reuben St. Clair. Reuben is a scarred, bitter, untrusting man with a disfiguring injury from Vietnam. He seems to come alive only when in front of his class. For a time that matchmaking brings nothing but problems. Ultimately, though, unusual things start to happen. Crime rates dip across the nation, and nobody seems to know why. Then a journalist tracks down the source: an epidemic of random acts of kindness. Anyone who has ever despaired of one person's ability to effect change will rejoice in Trevor's courage and determination to see the good in everyone. 311 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

One Step Beyond, Chris Moon
20 Chris Moon One Step Beyond
MacMillan 237998 London 1999 033377969X / 9780333779699 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket 'Chris Moon knows about tough' - The Times 'This man is a hero for our times' - Daily Mail While supervising mine-clearance in Mozamique in 1995, Chris Moon was blown up in the supposedly clear area of the safety lane. He lost his lower right leg and right arm and survived only through sheer determination. Less than a year after leaving hospital, he ran the London Marathon, raising money for charities assisting the disabled, defying all expectations for his own future. He has since completed more than fifteen other marathons, including the punishing Marathon des Sables, which is a 137 mile race across the Sahara. One Step Beyond is Chris Moon's story so far. He has led a life of remarkable experiences, from being one of the few people to survive kidnap by the Khmer Rouge, to running the final stage of the Olympic torch relay to Nagano for the opening of the 18th Winter Olympics in 1998. Chris Moon writes with wit and charm, passion and belief, and his tale is truly one of adventure, romance and inspiration. 'An inspiring book written by a very brave and modest man' - Richard Branson 'A wonderful read replete with humour and honesty' - Steve Cram 'This powerful book will give you an insight into Chris Moon and, like me, you will feel humbled in his presence' - Tracey Edwards 388 pages.
