For centuries, tea has held a valued place in both Eastern and Western cultures. From the ritual of a Japanese tea ceremony to the cozy informality of an English cuppa at the kitchen table, tea (whether green, black, white or herb) soothes, grounds and comforts us. It’s no surprise that so many of us switch the kettle on at the first sign of trouble - keep calm and drink tea! In fact, that’s how this book came about. After a particularly stressful week, editor Anouska Jones was sitting at home with her husband complaining about everything that had gone wrong. As he put their teapot and two mugs down on the table, her husband commented, "Cheer up! You can’t be miserable when you’ve got a bright red teapot in front of you!" The very next morning, Anouska started researching quotes about tea and before long she had a collection of memorable quotations from rock stars (Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart), Buddhist monks (Thich Nat Hahn), politicians (Abraham Lincoln, William Gladstone), actors (Audrey Hepburn, Billy Connolly), adventurers (Bear Grylls) and more. It seems tea’s appeal is truly universal! It’s hoped that the resulting book of quotes and accompanying photographs brings you the same pleasure as a perfectly brewed cup of your own particular favorite.

Jenny Gillespie has suffered her share of troubles during the Great War, not least the loss of her fiance, Robert Archer. For although Robert was not killed in action he is as dead to her as any sweetheart slaughtered in France when he eventually meets another woman. Jenny, meanwhile, is trapped in Clydeside's dockland, unable to leave her mother, who is worn out and heartbroken. Jenny has little choice but to abandon her dream of making a new start in Glasgow and return to her job in the tracing office of Dalkieth's shipyard and the domination of her relentlessly demanding family. Unexpectedly, Robert Archer returns to Clydeside and becomes Jenny's boss. Single again, penitent and seemingly eager to rekindle his relationship with Jenny, Robert would offer her a way out of the dead end she finds herself in. But Jenny, to her surprise, receives a proposal of marriage from a decent man, one that offers the obvious way to fulfil her duties to her family, escape from their cramped tenement home - and to forget Robert Archer forever. Perhaps only then, Jenny thinks, will she finally be able to reach out and grasp the handful of happiness she longs for...

Now that she is finally and happily married to her long-term suitor Mr J.L.B. Matekoni, Mma Ramotswe of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency of Botswana might have expected life to grow more sedate. But the many problems that lead customers to Mma Ramotswe's door seem, if anything, to have multiplied, and no sooner has she settled her traditionally built person into the married state than she finds herself looking into several troublesome matters at once. There is, to begin with, a disturbing case of blackmail and theft from the Government catering college. Then, while on an errand for her husband to the Mokolodi Game Reserve Mma Ramotswe is seconded to investigate an unpleasant atmosphere that may be down to witchcraft, or something worse. There are sinister goings-on at a health clinic to be looked into, not to mention any number of small wrongs to be righted along the path to detective triumph. And all the time Mma Ramotswe has weighty questions of a philosophical nature to consider, such as whether it is right to find happiness in small things, such as a new pair of blue shoes, a slice of cake, or a red sunset over the Kalahari.

The Memory Artists

Winner of the Canadian Authors Association Award for Best Novel Noel Burun has synesthesia and hypermnesia: he sees words in vibrant explosions of colors and shapes, which collide and commingle to form a memory so bitingly perfect that he can remember everything, from the 1001 stories of The Arabian Nights to the color of his bib as a toddler. But for all his mnemonic abilities, he is confronted every day with a reality that is as sad as it is ironic: his beloved mother, Stella, is stricken with Alzheimer's disease, her memory slowly slipping into the quicksands of oblivion. The Memory Artists follows Noel, helped by a motley cast of friends, on his quest to find a cure for his mother's affliction. The results are at the same time darkly funny, quirkily inventive, and very moving. Alternating between third-person narratives and the diaries of Noel and Stella, Jeffrey Moore weaves a story filled with fantastic characters and a touch of suspense that gets at the very heart of what it means to remember and forget, and that is a testament to the uplifting power of family and friendship.
