The Other Family by Joanna TrollopeFrom $19.25
A topical and utterly compelling contemporary novel from the number one bestselling author. Chrissie always believed that Richie loved her, had loved her for all the twenty-three years they?d been together, loved their three daughters and their house in Highgate and their happy, lively existence. But if she really was the love of his life, why had he never given her the one thing that would have made her life perfect? The ring she wore was not a wedding ring, and it did not bring her the security of marriage. That belonged, still, to Margaret, back in Newcastle where Richie had started off as a musician, before he became famous. Margaret and her son Scott never saw Richie, and had never met the three girls. They were his other family, not mentioned but always in Chrissie?s mind, an obstacle to her complete happiness. And then, suddenly and shockingly, Richie is no longer there, and Chrissie and the girls have to learn to manage without him. The presence of the other family becomes, all at once, impossible to ignore ? not least because they are involved in Richie?s will. Old resentments, and feelings of abandonment and loss, have to jostle with the practicalities of money and property...About The AuthorJoanna Trollope is the author of fifteen highly acclaimed, bestselling contemporary novels.

Mid-Life by Joe OllmannFrom $10.35
WHEN THE BODY SAGS AND THE HONESTY LAGS! Mid-Life is the story of a 40-year-old man, John, who becomes a father again with his much-younger second wife, which results in a slow, painful attack by flowered baby bags and front facing baby carriers on his virility and self-identity. John always believed that age is a state of mind. His adult daughters, baby son, energetic wife, stressful job, house full of cats, and flabby body complete with bloated stomach and sagging bosom, however, all lead John reluctantly to admit that he is having a midlife crisis. The crisis drives John to yell at his wife, pick fights with his daughters and miss deadlines at work that put his job on the line. John takes solace from the stress of everyday life with a seemingly harmless infatuation with the pretty children's performer Sherry Smalls who sings adoringly to him directly from his son's DVD. Sherry Smalls, meanwhile, is equally desperate to find a distraction in life. Her path to rock stardom has been rudely overtaken by a semi-successful but completely loathsome gig as a children's performer. It pays the bills and a Saturday morning television show is on the horizon. That is, if she is able to fire her alcoholic on-again, off again boyfriend/bandmate. As their lives snowball, John's infatuation turns into obsession and a haphazard, fateful email leads to a necessary reality check that neither may have wanted, but both will surprisingly welcome.About the AuthorJoe Ollmann lives in Montreal with his wife and children. He is the winner of the Doug Wright Award for best cartooning.
