The Past and Other Lies

The chair's missing —that's odd, you could see her thinking, then she popped the
fork into her mouth and realised the gravy was still simmering in a pan in the
kitchen. 'Oh, the gravy!' she said, pushing back her chair and going into the

A psychologically suspenseful novel of three generations of sisters: “An edgy story . . .Joel has a wicked sense of humor.” —The Age (Australia). In a novel that ranges through the decades of the twentieth century, we meet sisters Jennifer and Charlotte, who share both a dark sense of humor and a dark secret; their mother and aunt, who grew up during World War II and endured the bombing of London; and the generation before them—Bertha and Jemima—whose lives took a dramatic and deadly turn during England’s ill-fated general strike of 1926. As the lies, betrayals, and hidden mysteries of the past unspool, we come to know these three sets of siblings—and how both family history and world history shaped their lives—in a riveting saga from the award-winning author of The Second-Last Woman in England.

By July 1914, the ties between Kezia Marchant and Thea Brissenden, friends since girlhood, have become strained – by Thea’s passionate embrace of women’s suffrage and by the imminent marriage of Kezia to Thea’s brother, Tom, who runs the family farm. When Kezia and Tom wed just a month before war is declared between Britain and Germany, Thea’s gift to Kezia is a book on household management – a veiled criticism of the bride’s ordinary life to come. Yet when Tom enlists to fight and Thea is drawn reluctantly onto the battlefield herself, the farm becomes Kezia’s responsibility. Each must find a way to endure the ensuing cataclysm and turmoil. As Tom marches to the front lines and Kezia battles to keep her ordered life from unravelling, they hide their despair in letters filled with stories woven to bring comfort. But will well-intended lies and self-deception be of use when they come face-to-face with the enemy?

Short Tales and White Lies (Memories of Rural East Texas) by O.T. Haygood Jr. (The Backwoods Philosopher) There Really Is A Santa Claus: Ever so silent, lest we incur the ashes and hot coals Santa was said to throw into the eyes of such rascals as dared peek upon him, my sister and me crept toward the living room. At last we stood just to one side of the open doorway, gathering courage for the final plunge into the magical sight of Santa Claus at work. O. T. Haygood Jr. has wanted to write a book since his middle school years in the 1960s. Many of these tales are from his personal experiences growing up in Rural East Texas, while others were passed down from the many special people he was privileged to know. His Dad and Paternal Grandmother were his chief storytelling influences. He’d listen for hours to their tales of the “good old days.” Within these pages are what he hopes is the best of them. If all goes well, this will be the first of a two volume collection. For better or worse the second book, “More Short Tales and White Lies (From Rural East Texas),” is already in the editing stage, so wish him luck.

I, ROBERTA HARRISON, have to keep a diary, and it’s all the fault of the Worm of Jealousy. Ambushed by the dreaded Worm over her “best” friend’s new diary and fashionable clothes, 13-year-old Bobby announces that she, too, has a diary. Now she feels compelled to write in an old exercise book every day, chronicling the trials and tribulations of growing up in a world at war. Bobby’s beloved eldest brother and uncle are fighting overseas in the conflict. Her 16-year-old brother can’t wait to enlist, and her seemingly worldly sister gets pregnant by a young airman. And now Bobby’s fledgling romantic life has turned into a complete humiliation. A poignant coming-of-age story, interspersed with Barbara Haworth-Attard’s father’s World War II letters, Love-Lies-Bleeding will appeal to the author’s large and loyal historical fiction audience, as well as new readers of her bestselling contemporary novel, Theories of Relativity. • A starred “Our Choice Selection” of the Canadian Children’s Book Centre • Listed on the Resource Links Best Books List • A Bilson Honour Book • Highly recommended by the Canadian Book Review Annual • Nominated for the Red Cedar Award
