The Night in Question by Susan Fletcher

The page-turning, beautifully layered tale of octogenarian Florence, who, determined to solve a staggering mystery on her doorstep, must finally address the scars her past has drawn on her. Lessons In Chemistry meets The Thursday Murder Club, this uplifting novel tells the story of a joyful, brave and unconventional life, brimming with love and loss in all its forms.



Nature’s Ghost by Sophie Yeo

Mapping the landscapes lost to time due to humanity’s influence, Penarth author Sophie Yeo’s haunting and endlessly fascinating book recreates the sublime majesty of the natural world in its earliest, most diverse form. Yeo argues how, from ghosts of the past, we can learn how to build a more wild and ancient future.



Peregrine Quinn and the Cosmic Realm by Ash Bond

Join Peregrine Quinn on a nail-biting adventure to save her kidnapped godfather and reopen the portals between the Cosmic Realm and her reality. As she races through the streets of Oxford, down the riverways of London and into the Under-Underground, she soon realises that the creatures in her godfather’s stories are not only real, but they’re shooting at her with laser blasters.
