Penguin Books 230808 Australia 2006 0670071226 / 9780670071227 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.

But then, in a single week, his whole world had been turned upside down by a dancer, Stephanie McQueen, who seemed to float across the stage of the Empire Music Hall where she was appearing as The Maltese Angel. To his amazement, the attraction was mutual, and after a whirlwind courtship she agreed to marry him. But a scorpion had already begun to emerge from beneath the stone of the local community, who considered that Ward had betrayed their expectations, and had led on and cruelly deserted Daisy. There followed a series of reprisals on his family, one of them serious enough to cause him to exact a terrible revenge; and these events would twist and turn the course of many lives through Ward's own and succeeding generations. 480 pages.

Caesar's Women, Colleen McCullough

William Morrow & Co 237074 New York 1996 First US Edition 068809371x / 9780688093716 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Caesar's Women is the story of Gaius Julius Caesar's rise to prominence in his world, beginning with his return to Rome in 68 B.C. as he prepares to dominate a new battlefield - the Roman Forum. The wars he fights within it are waged with words, plots, schemes, and metaphorical assassination. Today's ally may be tomorrow's foe; everything shifts and changes within this political arena.Caesar's victories are not limited to the Forum, however. Penned inside Rome for these memorable ten years, Caesar also conquers Rome's noblewomen. Yet the one thing he never gives to any of the women who love him or want him is himself. To Caesar, love is just another weapon in his political arsenal. He is as willing to sacrifice his daughter on the altar of his ambition as he is ready to seize other means of moving toward his ultimate goal - to be the greatest of all Rome's First Men.Was he villain, or was he hero? That argument is still being debated today, for Caesar has never ceased to fascinate the passing generations. Caesar's Women reveals the man behind the legend, and displays a world that, despite its alien trappings echoes our own too closely for comfort. 696 pages. Light foxing to endpapers and page edges.

Young Nick's head, Karen Hesse
18 Karen Hesse Young Nick's head
Simon & Schuster 237462 Australia 2001 0689835086 / 9780689835087 Softcover Good Condition The year is 1768. Nicholas Young's mind is made up. He's had enough! Enough of the cruel butcher to whom he is apprenticed and enough of his indifferent father lurking somewhere in the background of his existence. He's had enough of the squalor of his life in London. He's going to run away. But when he's stowed away on board a smallish ship he has no idea how famous this journey will be, one of the most famous journeys of discovery in maritime history. Three years it will take before he'll come back to London, three long years of adventure and hardship: an eleven-year-old boy among eighty tough-minded, seafaring men and under constant scrutiny from the gentlemen on board. There's midshipman Bootie who makes every day a living hell for Nick and John Ravenhill the drunken sail maker. But Dr. Monkhouse, the surgeon, and Mr Banks, the botanist stand up for their keen and gifted assistant and one by one Nick befriends the crew. So the journey progresses and the ship's company see places, people, sights, sounds and customs that no man has set eyes on ever before. There's fever, famine and drought; exotic plants, stunning wildlife, blistering heat and tremendous cold. The crew in turn marvel and shudder at what comes their way and not everyone makes the return journey home. Front cover has a closed tear. 293 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
