Shaun Bythell runs one of the second hand and antiquarian bookshops in Scotland’s ‘ special place ‘ for books, Wigtown. This diary style account of life behind the till is grumpy, cynical - and hilarious.
Small enough to pop in a bag, but bursting with history and mystery. A great guidebook for those who think they know Belfast well, or those who prefer to discover less obvious delights on the tourist trails.
Kerry Hayes is a single mum, living on a tough south London estate. She provides for her son by cleaning houses she could never hope to afford. Taken into care as a child, Kerry cannot ever forget her past.

When Kerry reaches out to the sibling she lost on the day they were torn apart as children, she sets in motion a chain of events that will have life-changing consequences for them both.
