Hippocrates, the father of medicine said all disease begins in the gut and although we have come a long way in modern medicine this is still fundamentally true: If your digestive tract is unhealthy you will not enjoy good health.

Dr Sandra Cabot, award winning author says you can overcome your bowl problems with a holistic approach to good health, particularly good digestive tract health and has, in her latest book offered practical and potentially lifesaving advice into eating for health and longevity.

Gregory once again has skilfully recreated Tudor England through the pages of what can almost be read as a diary of Margaret Pole as she struggles, not just for survival but for her beliefs and allegiances in a time when to trust was to die. Having risen to a place of some considerable power within the Court, the cold hand of betrayal reaches out not just to Margaret but to those she loves and holds dear.

Starting out with an tremendously upbeat track in Brazil, you immediately think of flamboyance and party time but equally as quickly move into a time and place one can only call reflective and melodic, slow and gentle, which, over Gronau’s past few albums has been becoming more and more apparent.

(how a ship load of convicts survived the wreck of the “Hive” to make a new life in Australia.)

This is an intensely researched history of early Australian settlement, focussing on a group of Irish convicts.  The 250 Irish prisoners, who were transported to New South Wales in 1835, were shipwrecked off the coast of Booderee National Park, New South Wales.  All the convicts survived, and were escorted to the Colony by Aboriginal people.

Although this is billed as the first book in a Fantasy Series for 7-12 year olds, it’s a great read for anyone who loves Fantasy Sci-Fi, as it holds the interest right up until the final word, something that is not always achievable and while definitely Fantasy, could almost be believable.  Well almost!

Cole and his friends are having a high old time of it at Halloween, but somehow something goes wrong, but how wrong, Cole is yet to find out.

Numbers, numbers, numbers, say that to most kids and they will freak out. If you are a teacher you will know the truth of that statement. But here Liz Strachan in her “Numbers are Forever”, has shown us what every reasonable teacher can do to take the drudgery out of teaching maths and put a lot of effervescence into it. I tried this out on a group of year 5s last week and they loved it.

First loves can sometimes last a lifetime and by doing so colour all the hours of the days in the years that are to follow.

When Grace Hamblin, daughter of the head gardener and beekeeper,  falls in love with Rufus Duncliffe, son of Lord and lady Penselwood little did she know where it would lead as she was only fourteen and dazzled by his raffish splendour.

This is Alafair's tenth book and it shows as she writes with clarity and certainty, which can be difficult when dealing with many characters and murders. The clues are revealed and unraveled within a framework of information and planning, keeping the reader in the loop at all times. As the author was a former Deputy District Attorney, and is currently a Professor of Law, she writes with authority.

I opened this latest compilation of stories from Justin St Vincent in the middle of the book, simply because I could. The words that came immediately to view are from  the Artistic Director of the Washington Master Chorale, Thomas Colohan, ‘ When I stand in front of my chorus and hear their unified voices raised in song, I know I am hearing the very heart of compassion, the true voice of humanity’. These words struck a powerful chord.

Young Detective Lexie Rogers is back in another tantalising thriller when she and her partner Brad Sommers are called to the scene of a murder at one of the popular Sydney beaches on an chilly winters morning.

The body of a young woman has been found, beautifully laid out with her hands holding red rose.  The red rose is obviously significant but at this early stage the question is why? Why was she murdered and why was she holding the rose?
