Swear words, even words the average person might no longer consider a swear word like bloody or Hell are edited as are scenes involving sex, drugs or violence. Quite often we’re left staring blankly and confused as a scene jumps inexplicably over the...

Shards (The Glass Table) (Children's Books)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 14, 2011 10:19PM
Description: Silver medalist Mom's Choice Awards 2010. "Action-packed and abounding with quirky, likable characters, this small gem has the power to keep readers entranced." Following on the heels of her bestselling first novel, THE GLASS TABLE, Leigh K Cunningham has penned an entertaining, insightful sequel for young readers. When Shards picks up the story, brainy Ming Zhi Chen has arrived home after escaping the witch's spell that transformed her and eleven others into spirits to live in the river Kai. Ming's flight to freedom came at a high price, and she is determined to do whatever she can to free the children she left behind. To break the spell and defeat the witch, she enlists the help of Sarah Gibson, a local journalist who shares Ming's incredible story with the townsfolk of Rumpole ... with unexpected results. Meanwhile, the child spirits continue their struggles against each other and developers who threaten the ecosystem of their river home. Continuing the environmental theme of protecting freshwater lakes and rivers, Shards is a captivating story that will leave young readers anxiously anticipating the next installment in this exciting series.
The Glass Table (Children's Books)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 14, 2011 10:14PM
Description: Silver medalist, Mom's Choice Awards 2010. Twelve children disappear while swimming at Lake Como during the summer school holidays. There are no clues except for the boogie board belonging to ten-year-old Jordan Carrefour found floating on the lake's surface. Cast into a spell to live as spirits in the river Kai, and divided into two opposing spirit groups, the children learn that it is only through trust, camaraderie, and teamwork do they have a chance to return home to their families. However, when a wood spirit named Faith suffers the consequences of Toby Witherspoon's daring escape, all bets are off, even though a greater threat emerges on the banks of the river Kai. The sequel, SHARDS, continues the story.
Rain (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 14, 2011 09:37PM
Description: Winner Literary Fiction category at the 2011 National Indie Excellence Awards, and silver medalist at the 2011 Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY) in the Regional Fiction: Australia/New Zealand category. Set in provincial Australia in the early sixties, Rain is a multigenerational family saga that chronicles the lives of three generations of the Wallin sawmilling dynasty. It explores the often difficult but enduring ties between mothers and daughters, men and women: the sacrifices, compromises, and patterns of emotion that repeat themselves through generations. In a journey that spans four decades and crosses the globe, Rain is an epic tale of the choices and consequences that comprise one family’s history. By turn dark and amusing, Rain delivers an emotionally charged revelation about love, loss, guilt, self-discovery and redemption. The enduring question of family bonds—escapable or not, divides, conquers, and triumphs.
