AFTER FOUR HARROWING YEARS ON THE WESTERN Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby. Tom, who keeps meticulous records and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel insists the baby is a “gift from God,” and against Tom’s judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy. When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice has devastated one of them.

As the growing specter of Nazi anti-Semitism threatens a German Jewish family's existence, they send their twelve-year-old daughter to safety in America. The letters written by Sam Kahn to his daughter, Thea, in Chicago, and her vivid recollections of that time in her young life, form a tiny, yet poignantly personal portrait of an era of constant dread. There Must Be an Ocean between Us records a father's innermost fears, not only for his distant daughter, but also for the family members whose very lives were at risk in Nazi Germany. The correspondence provides unique insights into the nightmare that Nazism brought to the lives of ordinary people. But even more engrossing are Thea's memories of this difficult time. Her letters not only display a young girl's growing anxiety for her family but also reflect the ironic contrast between her idyllic American circumstances and the harrowing straits of the Kahn family in Europe. This story offers a unique perspective on one of the twentieth century's most critical periods. This is not the pre-World War II era as seen by the Roosevelts, Stalins, or Hitlers, who shaped so many destinies, but the view from an ordinary family for whom a mere scrap of paper-an exit visa-represented life itself.

Raised by her grandmother after her parents died when she was only five, Hendlee's poured her time and energy into building her own life in the small town she loves. Best friends are hard to find-and even harder to keep. Hendlee didn't start to notice her feelings for one of her friends-Quaid Castings-until she was in high school. By then it was too late. Unlike her, his plans for the future involved ditching town and enrolling in the Naval Academy. Just one night with Quaid is all she wants, but when it finally happens, it's not nearly enough. And he's leaving in less than twenty-four hours. The pursuit of happiness often requires leaving someone behind. Quaid wants more than the country life. Joining the Navy is the best way to explore the world beyond the hills of Kentucky. Except chasing his dream means leaving behind the girl he's been in love with all his life-Hendlee Masters. When Quaid chooses a career in the Navy over the love of a small-town girl, will their fates once again align? Or will their love be lost in The Ocean Between Us?

Covering a diving championship in Greece on a hot and sticky assignment for Outside magazine, James Nestor discovered free diving. He had stumbled on one of the most extreme sports in existence: a quest to extend the frontiers of human experience, in which divers descend without breathing equipment, for hundreds of feet below the water, for minutes after they should have died from lack of oxygen. Sometimes they emerge unconscious, or bleeding from the nose and ears, and sometimes they don't come up at all. The free divers were Nestor's way into an exhilarating and dangerous world of deep-sea pioneers, underwater athletes, scientists, spear fishermen, billionaires and ordinary men and women who are poised on the brink of some amazing discoveries about the ocean. Soon he was visiting the scientists who live 60ft underwater (and are permanently high on nitrous dioxide), swimming with the notorious man-eating sharks of Réunion and descending thousands of feet in a homemade submarine. And on the way down, he learnt about the amazing amphibious reflexes activated in the human body under deep-water conditions, why dolphins were injected with LSD in an attempt to teach them to talk, and why sharks like AC/DC. The sea covers seventy per cent of Earth's surface, and still contains answers to questions about the world we are only beginning to ask: Deep blends science and adventure to uncover its amazing secrets.

Through dolphins, we can see the best and worst of mankind. On average, seventy four dolphins wash up on the Gulf of Mexico’s north shore every year. In the first half of 2012, there were eight hundred and ninety-one of them, with stillborn baby dolphins washing up at ten times the average yearly rate. The cause? BP’s disastrous oil spill in 2010. For decades mankind’s actions have led to the deaths of thousands of these beautiful creatures and this continues now, at a time when we know more about them than we ever have before. We know about their intelligence, abilities, and their culture. We know how similar to us they really are. In her most provocative book yet, Susan Casey takes us into an underwater world that is similar to our own in ways no other animal’s world is. We’re at a crossroads now where we could end up destroying these beautiful creatures, and our relationship with nature has become so dysfunctional that it jeopardizes our own existence. By combining her own personal narrative with her in-depth scientific research, Casey delivers a narrative which is both compassionate and thrilling.

In the idyllic hill country of Sri Lanka, a young girl grows up with her loving family; but even in the midst of this paradise, terror lurks in the shadows. When tragedy strikes, she and her mother must seek safety by immigrating to America. There the girl reinvents herself as an American teenager to survive, with the help of her cousin; but even as she assimilates and thrives, the secrets and scars of her past follow her into adulthood. In this new country of freedom, everything she has built begins to crumble around her, and her hold on reality becomes more and more tenuous. When the past and the present collide, she sees only one terrible choice. From Nayomi Munaweera, the award-winning author of Island of a Thousand Mirrors, comes the confession of a woman, driven by the demons of her past to commit a single and possibly unforgivable crime. Praise for Island of a Thousand Mirrors: "The paradisiacal landscapes of Sri Lanka are as astonishing as the barbarity of its revolution, and Munaweera evokes the power of both in a lyrical debut novel worthy of shelving alongside her countryman Michael Ondaatje or her fellow writer of the multigenerational immigrant experience Jhumpa Lahiri." - Publishers Weekly "The beating heart of Island of a Thousand Mirrors is not so much its human characters but Sri Lanka itself and the vivid, occasionally incandescent, language used to describe this teardrop in the Indian Ocean." - The New York Times Book Review

In this revelatory book, Callum Roberts uses his lifetime's experience working with the oceans to show why they are the most mysterious places on earth, their depths still largely unexplored. In The Ocean of Life we get a panoramic tour beneath the seas: Why do currents circulate the way do? Where exactly do they go? How has the chemistry of the oceans changed? How polluted are we making them? Above all, Roberts reveals the richness of their life, and how it has altered over the centuries. The oceans are now under unprecedented threat. Not only does Roberts show how we are fishing our oceans to extinction, crucially, he explains how this directly affects our lives on land. Ninety-five percent of habitable space on earth lies in the oceans, and marine plants produce half the world's oxygen; the oceans themselves absorb vast quantities of carbon dioxide. The life they support is now in the balance. The Ocean of Life should galvanise debate worldwide. Roberts shows how we can arrest and reverse the damage we are doing. Tantalisingly, it is within our grasp to restore the life of the oceans. There is still time.
