“Die leser word geprikkel en met vele vrae gelaat . . . Hoe goed ken ’n mens werklik jou gesinslede of enigiemand anders? Hoe vernietigend is groepsdruk, hoe intimiderend die behoefte aan tuishoort? Uiters aktueel, nie net in Amerika nie.” – Deborah Steinmair, joernalis en skrywer

Nadat hy jare lank wreed verbaal en fisiek deur klasmaats geboelie is, knak die 17-jarige Peter Houghton een oggend. Binne slegs neëntien minute sterf tien inwoners van die dorp Sterling in Amerika.

Die geskokte gemeenskap is vasberade dat geregtigheid moet geskiet. Soos die hofsaak ontvou en Peter getuienis lewer, kom dit egter aan die lig dat die inwoners van Sterling ’n rol daarin gespeel het om ’n innemende, liefdevolle seun in ’n moordenaar te laat verander.

In ’n era waarin boeliegedrag toenemend ’n probleem is, hou hierdie meesleurende boek talle insigte in vir ouers, onderwysers en tieners.

In a tiny Italian village, life in the 1950s is a daily pageant of small human dramas. There are lippy signoras and earthy farmworkers. There is a coffin-maker, a silkworm farmer and those who catch frogs for the town’s local delicacy: frog risotto. And then there’s Pistola, a teenage boy in love with his second cousin Teresa, a girl who is sadly destined to marry the village thug.

To escape his heartache, young Pistola accepts the offer of a lifetime: to travel to South Africa to work on the trains. In lively Johannesburg, he and a group of compatriots are trained as stewards and taught to speak English – and Afrikaans. It’s not all work, mind you. The Italians set up home in Hillbrow and go partying in Sophiatown with the likes of Miriam Makeba. When Pistola falls for the spunky Malikah, a political activist, the apartheid police watch every breath of their passionate, illicit relationship.

Flash forward a few years, when Pistola, no longer the gauche village boy, must return home to make a decision that will define his future.

Witty, affectionate and vivid, this coming-of-age novel pays homage to the 110 young Italian men who were recruited to work on the South African Railways and introduced Italian cuisine to the nation.

An extraordinary story set in the first century about a woman who finds her voice and her destiny, from the celebrated number one New York Times bestselling author of The Secret Life of Bees and The Invention of Wings

In her mesmerizing fourth work of fiction, Sue Monk Kidd takes an audacious approach to history and brings her acclaimed narrative gifts to imagine the story of a young woman named Ana. Raised in a wealthy family with ties to the ruler of Galilee, she is rebellious and ambitious, with a brilliant mind and a daring spirit. She engages in furtive scholarly pursuits and writes narratives about neglected and silenced women. Ana is expected to marry an older widower, a prospect that horrifies her. An encounter with eighteen-year-old Jesus changes everything.

Their marriage evolves with love and conflict, humor and pathos in Nazareth, where Ana makes a home with Jesus, his brothers, and their mother, Mary. Ana’s pent-up longings intensify amid the turbulent resistance to Rome’s occupation of Israel, partially led by her brother, Judas. She is sustained by her fearless aunt Yaltha, who harbors a compelling secret. When Ana commits a brazen act that puts her in peril, she flees to Alexandria, where startling revelations and greater dangers unfold, and she finds refuge in unexpected surroundings. Ana determines her fate during a stunning convergence of events considered among the most impactful in human history.

Grounded in meticulous research and written with a reverential approach to Jesus’s life that focuses on his humanity, The Book of Longings is an inspiring, unforgettable account of one woman’s bold struggle to realize the passion and potential inside her, while living in a time, place and culture devised to silence her. It is a triumph of storytelling both timely and timeless, from a masterful writer at the height of her powers.
