An emotive and timeless collection of short stories by the much-loved Rosamunde Pilcher. Through thick mist and a cold east wind, Lavinia returns to Scotland. Up at the big house Mrs Farquhar is dying. Seeing Lachlan again, Lavinia remembers her childhood holidays there: swimming in the loch, the picnics, bottle-feeding the lambs down at the farm and the evenings when they danced reels. Most of all, she remembers Mrs Farquhar's grandson Rory. In the house, as the old lady lies serene and beautiful in the bed she has slept in since coming home to Lachlan as a bride, Lavinia meets Rory once again. Flowers in the Rain is one of sixteen stories, each giving another magical glimpse into Rosamunde Pilcher's world. The world in which most would prefer to live all the time.

Trapped by tragic circumstances in a dusty Namaqualand mining town during the Anglo-Boer War, Emma Richardson must degrade herself in order to survive. Then the town is besieged by Boer fighters, led by their tortured commandant Manie Smit, and Emma is faced with a fateful choice. With her vision of the ephemeral desert flowers in her mind, she sets out alone on foot by night on a desperate mission to create a new future for herself. ~ Flowers in the Sand (2011), the second novel by South African author Clive Algar, has been described by literary critics as "completely engrossing and superbly written" and "a great adventure story". ~ Writing in Independent Online, critic Lloyd Mackenzie says: "By blending the richness of his own fictional characters with one of South Africa's most historic events, he has created an enticing journey of a woman trying to survive against all odds... it is completely engrossing and superbly written. I am definitely going to look out for more of this author’s work." ~ Novelist and critic Jeanette Ferreira, writing in Beeld, says: "The Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902) remains a popular source for fiction. And, as with all historical novels, the challenge is to write about people’s destinies without yielding to the temptation to force all that hard-won research material into the text or to write a military report. Clive Algar undoubtedly understands this art. "Although all his historical figures become people of flesh and blood – especially Jan Smuts – his book is mainly the story of Emma Richardson... who, during the siege of O'okiep, must struggle with moral dilemmas about which she has never even had to think before, let alone handle successfully. "...Emma is not destined to bloom or wither in this sandveld forever. But if I said where her path leads I would be giving away a thrilling story." ~ Writing in The Citizen (South Africa), Dries Brunt says: "The siege of O'okiep, a mining town in Namaqualand, the people living there under the threat of a Boer conquest, a dangerous mission to seek relief, a woman's courage and a final outcome that is honourable, make this a great adventure story."
