Boeke 2013 April selection

 
 
 
A few weeks ago Tamarin (from I Want a Dodo) and I announced the newly revamped Exclusive Books Boeke promotion.  So as things are shaken up in the world of Boeke, I am being kept busy reading - as if the sky weren't blue!
 
We now announce the bookalicious list for The Boeke 2013 - Exclusive Books Recommends April selection.  Grab a cup of tea, and get cosy...




Instructions for a Heatwave by Maggie O’Farrell, The Promise of Stardust by Priscille Sibley, The Blind Man's Garden by Nadeem Aslam, Calling Me Home by Julie Kibler and Chef by Martin Suter.


Instructions for a Heatwave by Maggie O'Farrell, the acclaimed new book from Costa Novel Award-winning novelist, is a portrait of an Irish family in crisis in the legendary heatwave of 1976.


The Promise of Stardust by Priscille Sibley is an emotionally resonant and thought-provoking tale that raises profound questions about life and death, faith and medicine, and illuminates the power of love to divide and heal a family in the wake of unexpected tragedy.


The Blind Man's Garden by Nadeem Aslam is an exquisitely written novel set in Pakistan and Afghanistan in the months following 9/11. It is a story of war, of one family's losses, and of the simplest, most enduring human impulses.


Calling Me Home by Julie Kibler features sixteen-year-old heroine, Isabelle McAllister, who longs to escape the confines of her northern Kentucky hometown in the 1930s. After her family's housekeeper's son rescues her from a Newport drunk, the racial divide seems more painful than ever as they begin to fall in love.


Chef by Martin Suter - a huge international bestseller and Martin Suter's take on the culinary world set in Zurich. The novel has been described as ‘as full of mystery as a crime story, only more exotic and more erotic’.
