Amy Snow by Tracy Rees (Quercus)
Amy is left to perish as a baby on a bank of snow. She is found and taken to a big house, Hatville Court, but is most unwelcome by the master and his staff. The only light in Amy’s life is Aurelia Vennaway – the stunning Hatville heiress – Amy’s only advocate. Her world is in tatters when poor Aurelia dies young but she leaves Amy one last gift that could change her future.
Tracy Rees is the winner of the 2014 Richard and Judy search for a bestseller competition. Amy Snow is a compelling mystery and an emotional roller coaster of a read!
Woman in Gold
New to the cinema, Woman in Gold stars Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds and Katie Holmes. It’s an enchanting story of a Gustav Klimt painting, a portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, which is confiscated by the Nazis from the Bloch-Bauer mansion in Vienna. After the war the painting is installed in Austria’s Belvedere Gallery. Maria Altmann, Adele’s niece, is in her eighties and determined to reclaim the painting: the inheritance she argues is rightfully hers. It’s a gripping story with touching performances and a strong lead by Helen Mirren; it’s definitely worth seeing on the big screen.
The Ultimate Collection by Paul Simon
Packed full of Paul Simon’s best solo hits, along with some of his best from his time as a duo with Art Garfunkel, The Ultimate Collection is a journey through his amazing career. Tracks include You Can Call Me Al, The Sound of Silence, 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover and the legendary Bridge over Troubled Water.
