ELLA ARRIVES IN SAIGON as a single girl on a trip meant for two. Abandoned by her adored boyfriend and haunted by the mystery of her absent Vietnam veteran father, she loses herself in coconut rum and easy ex-pat friends.
Sharing fractured pasts and uncertain futures, Ella begins to feel at home in a landscape scarred by war and betrayal. Hope is gradually returning to Vietnam. Hearts and minds are opening, and Ella finds herself falling in love with handsome French photographer Ariel. But will the heavy tropical rains be enough to wash away the ghosts of the past?
A sexy, soulful story about love, loss and learning to live again.
How We Met celebrates the surprising, sweet, funny and downright weird ways in which people have found love.
Join a who’s who of writers as they share their sometimes romantic, sometimes bittersweet true stories of finding the love of their life – the one they re with, or the one that got away.
From the romance of 1950s Sydney to the sleazy bars of 1990s Saigon; from outback Australia to central London; from Barbarella boots to barefoot pirates; from love at first sight to love the second time around – How We Met is naughty, nice, and all things in between.
Parlour Games for Modern Families sets out to revive the tradition of indoor family games: push aside the consoles, turn off the telly, and bring some mental stimulation, silliness and laughter, joy and connection back into your living room.
This book is bursting with games of logic and memory, wordplay, card games, role-play, and rough and tumble. Not a single game requires equipment that you won’t find in your average home: a pack of cards, a dictionary, an hourglass, dice, paper, and pen. You can play to your heart’s content without wasting a single natural resource — except perhaps the delicious jam tart, recipe found herein.
