A-.-Entertainment Weekly McGahan scrutinizes his characters without puppetry, and his prose moves with grace, smoothness and a gift for setting.-San Francisco Chronicle Absorbing, disturbing, almost gothic, by turns, as McGahan depicts the inextricability of family and the primal hunger for finding and naming home.-Valerie Miner, The Boston Globe After his father's death, young William is cast upon the charity of an unknown great-uncle, John McIvor. The old man was brought up expecting to marry the heiress to Kuran Station-a grand estate in the Australian Outback-only to be disappointed by his rejection and the selling off of the land. He has devoted his life to putting the estate back together and has moved into the once-elegant mansion. McIvor tries to imbue William with his obsession, but his hold on the land is threatened by laws entitling the Aborigines to reclaim sacred sites. William's mother desperately wants her son to become John McIvor's heir, but no one realizes that William is ill and his condition is worsening. The White Earth won Australia's Miles Franklin Award for 2005 and was selected as Book of the Year (2004) by The Age and the The Courier-Mail 379 pages. Light browning to page edges.

Viking 231182 Australia 2008 First Edition 0670072745 / 9780670072743 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Nick Duncan is a semi-retired, wealthy shipping magnate who lives in idyllic Beautiful Bay, Vanuatu, where he is known as the old patriarch of the islands. He is grieving the loss of his beguiling Eurasian true love, Anna, and is suffering for the first time from disturbing flashbacks to the Second World War. So he puts pen to paper and tells the compelling tale of the life he has lived since his war-hero days. It's an adventurous life that has had at its heart the love of two passionate and unforgettable - but very different - women. The seductive Anna Til and the beguiling Marg Hamilton have spent a lifetime in contest for Nick's devotion. Nick remains torn between them, and struggles between their two opposing worlds of economic exploitation and environmental crusade - until he is called upon to referee...Moving between the exotic Pacific Islands, Japan and Australia, over several decades, Fishing for Stars is an epic drama of adventure, ambition and unconventional love, and the stunning sequel to Bryce Courtenay's best-selling The Persimmon Tree. 'Just the right level of intellectual and emotional stimulation for a relaxing holiday read.'

Penguin Books 229736 Australia 2006 0143006991 / 9780143006992 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket 'I am Sylvia Honeyeater; I think myself born around 1196, and this is the story of my life.' From master storyteller Bryce Courtenay comes the colourful epic of Sylvia. Late twelfth-century Europe is torn by religious intolerance. Sylvia, with a singing voice that can literally charm the birds out of the trees, and an acute and questioning mind that refuses to accept unreasoned beliefs, embarks on a pilgrimage. She joins the Children's Crusade, bound for the Holy Land. From a bawdy life as an entertainer in a whorehouse to an austere and frequently cruel existence in a convent, she fights to be true to her destiny. And her mysterious birthmark causes much confusion- can this peasant maid indeed be a chosen messenger? Sylvia is a tale of adversity, of adventure and crusades, and of a beautiful and gifted woman. brycecourtenay.com facebook.com/BryceCourtenay 497 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

20 Bryce Courtenay The Potato Factory
William Heinemann 229946 Australia 1995 0855616539 / 9780855616533 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Ikey Solomon's favourite saying is also his way of doing business. And in the business of thieving, he's very successful indeed. Ikey's partner in crime is his mistress, the forthright Mary Abacus, until misfortune befalls them. They are parted and each must make the harsh journey from thriving nineteenth-century London to the convict settlement of Van Diemen's Land. In the backstreets and dives of Hobart Town, Mary learns the art of brewing and builds the Potato Factory, where she plans a new future. But her ambitions are threatened by Ikey's wife, Hannah, her old enemy. The two women raise their separate families, one legitimate and the other bastard. As each woman sets out to destroy the other, the families are brought to the edge of disaster. 'Courtenay offers an ersatz Dickens novel, a sort of Australian Oliver! but without the music.' Sunday Age 'The tale is vivid and instructive ...The Potato Factory is pure yarn-spinning, rattling along at heart-thumping pace. Barely a page goes by without incident. And for those who like their plots dense and melodramatic, Courtenay's in a class of his own.' 666 pages. Very light tanning to page edges .
