"This is a book that starts of by acknowledging the pain of infertility for many people and then examines the options for conceiving that have developed so rapidly since Louise Brown the first 'test tube baby' was born 30 years ago. Tom Frame argues that ethics, law and community desires haven't been able to keep up with technological advancement, and that this is a problem. He starts by looking at adoption, and includes details about his own experience as an adoptee. He writes about sperm and egg donors, asking whether it's fair that they be allowed to remain anonymous; he writes about IVF and surrogacy and finishes by writing about cases where women have asked to use the dead husbands' stored sperm to become preganant. He looks at science, religion, philosophy, ethics but his starting point is always 'what's best for the child'. His view that the ideal family is a mother, a father and a child will create some controversy."--Provided by publisher.

Set in the weeks leading up to an idyllic New England wedding, this “enticing and refreshing” (Nancy Thayer, New York Times bestselling author) novel sparkles with wry wit, sweet romance, and long-kept family secrets. Iris Standish has always been the responsible older sibling: the one with the steady marriage, loving family, and sensible job. But all of a sudden, as her carefully-constructed life spins out of her control, a cryptic postcard from her estranged sister Leah arrives at the perfect time: Please Come. Iris seizes her chance to escape to her childhood lakeside home, where Leah is planning her summer wedding to a man their New Hampshire clan has never met. Against a backdrop of dress fittings, floral arrangements, and rehearsal dinners, Leah hides secrets of her own. And while her sister faces a past that has finally caught up to her, Iris prepares to say good-bye to a future that is suddenly far from certain. As new love beckons and Hampstead Lake shimmers in the background, Iris must decide when to wade in cautiously and when to dive—and, ultimately, how to ferry herself to safe harbors in this enticing novel of second chances and the ties that bind.

What does a woman in her fifties do when her husband walks off with a younger model? A valuable string of pearls provides the ready-made answer -she sets about stealing jewellery as a declaration of independence. Theft provides more adventure than profit until a golden retriever, a craftsman joiner and a young man threatened with violence provide unexpected interests of a different kind for Martha Plasky. A diversity of crime, chaotic river cruising, some skilled wood-work and a hopeful apprenticeship disturb orderly domestic life in the riverside suburbs of London. The planned career of an ambitious thief is amiably thwarted by other kinds of adventure. Please be warned, this book contains a modicum of sex and violence but far more about the triumphs of some agreeable people. David Stewart-David is a retired lecturer who has turned to fiction to escape from footnotes.

Barbara Clark is a former nurse, foster carer and mother of two children, one with special needs, and was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer in February 2005. During her treatment, she found that there was a drug existing, Herceptin, that would double survival chances for her particular form of cancer from 14%. However, it wasn't available on the NHS and therefore, for Barbara, unaffordable. In the midst of aggressive chemotherapy, Barbara, incredibly, found the strength to fight not just the NHS but the government, and to win the right to be prescribed the drug on the NHS, not just for herself but for thousands of other women. THE FIGHT OF MY LIFE will tell the story behind those headlines. It will tell how she first found her cancer, and what it was that gave her the will to battle on and take on, not just the disease but the authorities who were prepared to let her die for want of a drug. Barbara's reasons for living are her three children, two of whom she fosters and who have special needs: their stories and how they dealt with her cancer will also be central to this an amazing, uplifting, inspiring book. Herceptin has treated Barbara's cancer, but it doesn't guarantee a complete cure - rather, it buys her more time to care for the people who are most precious to her, to help other women and to pursue what she calls her 'passion for life'. THE FIGHT OF MY LIFE is the story of an extraordinary woman and of great human courage in the face of despair.
