A compelling novel from the winner of the Commonwealth Writers Prize/ Best Book from Africa award. As a small child in a wintry Bremen, Hanna dreams about the other side of silence, the place where the wind comes from and palm trees wave in the sun. Seeing her chance to escape from years of abuse in an orphanage and in service, Hanna joins one of the shiploads of young women transported in the early years of the twentieth century to the colony of German South-West Africa to assuage the needs of the male settlers. Following atrocious punishment for daring to resist the advances of an army officer, she arrives at a phantasmagoric refuge in the African desert -- “prison, nunnery, brothel, shithouse, Frauenstein.” When the drunken excesses of a visiting army detachment threaten her only companion, Hanna revolts. Mounting a ragtag army of females and natives, she sets out on an epic march through the desert to take on the might of the German Reich. This apocalyptic journey through the darker regions of the soul will also reveal to Hanna the hidden meanings of suffering, revenge, companionship, love and compassion.

‘If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel’s heart beat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence.’ George Eliot, Middlemarch Having spent her life trying to patch up the souls of others, psychiatrist Linda Gask came to realise that being an expert in depression didn’t confer any immunity from it – she had to learn take care of herself, too. Artfully crafted and told with warmth and honesty, this is the story of Linda’s journey, interwoven with insights into her patients’ diverse experiences of depression - inextricably linked with problems in the past and the present such as vulnerability, fear, loss, loneliness, dependence and grief. She sets out to convey, in a new and original way, how it truly feels to experience this devastating illness, what psychotherapy is about, and the role of medication - and provides hope for those who suffer from depression and their loved ones whilst busting the stigma of mental illness.

The French Riviera, 1956. Bernie Gunther, our sardonic former Berlin homicide dick and unwilling SS officer, is the go-to guy at the Grand Hotel Cap Ferrat. A local writer, perhaps the most famous living writer in the world: W. Somerset Maugham, needs some professional advice. Maugham is being blackmailed - perhaps because of his unorthodox lifestyle. Or perhaps because of something in his past, because once upon a time, Maugham worked for the British secret service, and the people now blackmailing him are spies. As Gunther fans know, all roads lead back to the viper's nest that was Hitler's Third Reich and to the killing fields that spread like a disease across Europe. Print run 100,000.

Ever make a mistake? Sure, we all have. The choices we make don't always lead to the results we had hoped for. And what about the other people involved? Making our choice may cause misunderstanding, hurt, pain, grief or separation. How do we fix that? How can we be reconciled to those we love? How do we forgive or ask to be forgiven? "But it's none of their business!" you say. "It's my life and I'm making my choices alone!" Alone? Linda Azema thought she was alone, too. Using stories from her childhood, teenage and college years, Linda reveals an intricate web of voices clamoring around us, continually bombarding us with their messages and entangling our emotions. Linda is convinced: We are not alone, not in a single decision that we make. God comes near and speaks, because He loves you. The world broadcasts its message, because it aims to use you. And the devil who is called Satan will also speak his thoughts into your mind, because he wants to destroy you. Silence? Just you and your own thoughts? Listen again. There is more to our world than you may have realized on The Other Side of Silence. Still wondering if you should read this book? You'll be wasting your time, unless you are... Someone who faces choices to make on a daily basis, dealing with the thoughts and different options that bounce around in your head. (Might be you?) Someone who might have a tendency to see things only from his own perspective. (Not you? Okay.) Someone who knows a person who needs to realize there's more to life than 'just me.' (Still not you; but you know some, don't you?) Someone who already knows these things, and needs a tool to help others.

When CSA Lieutenant William Joseph Butler, or Billy, as family and friends know him, becomes a target of revenge for a wealthy planter on the Mississippi, Billy's father allows him to follow his brother into the army. Seventeen-year-old Billy finds his brother and regiment at Corinth, just before the battle of Shiloh in April of 1862. War is not what young Billy imagined it to be. Educated and inquisitive, he questions much of what he sees and experiences, and Billy finds himself contemplating the true nature and validity of the war he's fighting-and losing. After his first battle, Billy realizes glory is not a holy grail to be sought or bought-glory is made when soldiers are brutally slain, unable to strike the heroic pose. Yet Billy still finds reason to continue the war effort at each junction, risking losses beyond anything he has known in his short life. From the fragrant stalls of a livery stable to the bloodstained battlefields of the Civil War, The Other Side of Silence vividly portrays the life of a soldier who becomes disillusioned with war and the quest for glory.
