Simon & Schuster Australia (simonschusteraustralia) | 34 comments Hi everyone, we have a really big month of giveaways...three wonderful new novels we're so excited about!

The first is the big, bold and hauntingly beautiful Shell by Kristina Olsson a spellbinding and poignant story which captures a defining moment in Australia's history. In 1965 as Danish architect Jørn Utzon’s striking vision for the Sydney Opera House transforms the skyline and unleashes a storm of controversy, the shadow of the Vietnam War and a deadly lottery threaten to tear the country apart. In the turmoil, a Swedish glassmaker and a fiercely independent Australian journalist are thrown together. This is a beautiful portrait of art and life, capturing a world on the brink of seismic change though the eyes of two unforgettable characters caught in the eye of the storm. It reminds us why taking a side matters.

The second is The Survivors, the new incredible new novel from Kate Furnivall. Set in Germany in 1945, this is an unforgettably powerful, epic story of love, loss and the long shadow of war. Discover this brilliant story of love, danger, courage and betrayal, from the internationally bestselling author of The Betrayal and The Liberation. Perfect for readers of Santa Montefiore and Victoria Hislop.

And finally, we have Make or Break by Catherine Bennetto. Catherine Bennetto is back with her trademark wit and an equally hilarious cast of characters who will have you rooting for them from the first page. This is a wonderful romantic comedy with heart, perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk and Mhairi McFarlane.
