Simon & Schuster Australia (simonschusteraustralia) | 29 comments Hi everyone, we have another great month of ARC giveaways...three books we treasure, incredible February titles for you in a gorgeous, limited edition proof pack! These books have become in-house favourites, so we thought they’d make a lovely Christmas giveaway!

First is The Lost Girls by Jennifer Spence, a haunting tale of love and loss that will make you think twice…What would you do if you had the chance to change a pivotal moment from your past? How far would you go to save someone you loved? These are just two of the fateful choices a woman, Stella, must face in this highly original and hauntingly evocative detective story of love and loss. As Stella unravels the dark secrets of her family's past and her own, it becomes clear that everyone remembers the past differently and the small choices we make every day can change our future irrevocably. This utterly original, gripping and mind-bending tale will stay with you long after the last page.

Second is At the Wolf's Table by Rosella Postorino, the international bestseller based on the shocking true story of the ten women conscripted to risk their lives as Hitler’s food tasters. Germany, 1943: Twenty-six-year-old Rosa Sauer’s parents are gone, and her husband is fighting on the front lines. Alone, she has little choice but to leave war-torn Berlin behind and live with her in-laws in a village near the Wolfschanze, the Wolf’s Lair. As the war outside goes from bad to worse, so do the lives of the ten women trapped in the tasting room, forced to eat what may kill them. Rosa's friends are keeping explosive secrets, the vindictive SS officer put in charge of the tasters takes a special liking to her, and Rosa must figure out how she can stay alive as it becomes clear that she and her friends, her Hitler, everyone she knows, are on the wrong side of history.

Last but not least, is The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker, a harrowing, riveting and profoundly moving new novel from the author of The Age of Miracles. Imagine a world where sleep could trap you, for days, for weeks, months... A world where you could die of sleep rather than in your sleep. Karen Thompson Walker's second novel is stunning, the story of a Californian town's epidemic of perpetual sleep. A world of mysterious tragedy and compassion, and a lesson in the human spirit.
