Any wish can be granted with a little bit of Christmas magic … As a wedding planner at Carrick Park Hotel Ailsa McCormack has devoted herself to making sure couples get their perfect day, but just occasionally that comes at a price – in this case, organising a Christmas Day wedding at the expense of her own Christmas. Not that Ailsa minds. There’s something very special about Carrick Park during the festive season and she’s always been fascinated by the past occupants of the place; particularly the beautiful and tragic Ella Carrick, whose striking portrait still hangs at the top of the stairs. And then an encounter with a tall, handsome and strangely familiar man in the drawing room on Christmas Eve sets off a chain of events that transforms Ailsa’s lonely Christmas into a far more magical occasion than she could have ever imagined …
A brilliant new Christmas novel from Top Five Sunday Times bestselling author Trisha Ashley 'Like a nice mug of mulled wine in book form!' Good Housekeeping Meg is definitely not in the Christmas mood. She’s never gone in for tinsel, baubles and mistletoe, and right now she’s still getting over an illness. Yet when she’s invited to spend the run-up to Christmas in the snowy countryside, rather than dreary London, she can’t refuse. Arriving at a warm and cosy family home in a small hilltop village, Meg soon begins to wonder what a proper Christmas might be like. But just as she’s beginning to settle in, she spots a familiar face. Lex. Despite the festive cheer, Meg suddenly wants nothing more than to get as far away from him, and their past secrets, as she can. But if she stays, could this be the year she finally discovers the magic of Christmas...? Fabulously funny, intelligent and heart-warming, Trisha Ashley’s brand-new novel is the feel-good Christmas novel of the year. It even contains recipes! Praise for Trisha Ashley: "One of the best writers around!" Katie Fforde "Full of down-to-earth humour" Sophie Kinsella "A warm-hearted and comforting read. Trisha at her best" Carole Matthews

Hilda Hollingsworth's story of the World War II evacuation of nearly 1 million children from London's big cities to so called Places of Greater safety just prior to the Nazi blitz offers a look at the Christian side of the holocaust. Hilda and her sisters lived with a series of foster families in the relative safety of Wales, some kind, some punitive. The result is a testament to the courage and ingenuity of young people who meet with the kindness of strangers and child abuse. One of the best books ever written about wartime Britain from a child's perspective. It can be read alongside The Diary of Anne Frank.
