All We Shall Know
by Donal Ryan

Melody Shee is alone and in trouble. Her husband doesn't take her news too well. She doesn't want to tell her father yet because he's a good man and this could break him. She's trying to stay in the moment, but the future is looming - larger by the day - while the past won't let her go. What she did to Breedie Flynn all those years ago still haunts her.

It's a good thing that she meets Mary Crothery when she does. Mary is a young Traveller woman, and she knows more about Melody than she lets on. She might just save Melody's life.

Donal Ryan's new novel is breathtaking, vivid, moving and redemptive.

Somewhere Inside of Happy
by Anna McPartlin

Maisie Bean is a fighter. A survivor. Seventeen years ago, she went on a first date that went so badly it was enough to put the girl off chips. The marriage that followed was hell but it gave her two children: funny, caring Jeremy and bullish but brilliant Valerie.

Just as it seems everything might finally start going right, sixteen-year-old Jeremy goes missing. The police descend and a media storm swirls, over five days of searching that hurtle towards an inevitable, terrible conclusion.

Maisie is facing another fight, and this time it's the fight of her life. But she's a survivor. Whatever the odds, she'll never give in.

From the bestselling author of The Last Days of Rabbit Hayes comes this heart-breaking yet uproariously uplifting new novel about love, resilience and the life-changing power of hope.

The Big Lie - Who Profits From Irelandís Austerity?
by Gene Kerrigan

Irelandís economic collapse hit with bewildering speed and cut deep into many lives. At a time when we most needed leadership, our politicians let us down, telling us we were all to blame for the recession and that we just needed to suffer a little pain to make everything right again. It was a Big Lie.
This book offers an alternative view to the official cover story of austerity. Itís about the great majority of us who werenít gambling with our future. Itís about whatís being done to us, who is doing it and why. Itís also about who benefits from this and who gets it in the neck. And what we might do about that.
Gene Kerrigan delves deep into the muddy waters of the boom and crash, the chaos in the banks, the intervention by the troika and the erosion of democracy. He looks at how the Dáil and the media became full of mindless free market cheerleaders, how the country became laden down with unregulated bankers, and how the government acquiesced in imposing a destructive programme of austerity on the Irish people.
Meanwhile, the elites in our society wrap the green flag around themselves, calling for sacrifice and patriotism, while they hold on fiercely to every perk and privilege.
Itís time to tell the truth.

Isn't It Well For Ye?: The Book of Irish Mammies
by Colm O'Regan

A BOOK if you donít mind! And him with a degree and a job and all.

Everyone should have an Irish Mammy. Sheís never short of advice, a kind word and a cup of tea (making sure to scald the teapot first, of course).

Bring the coat anyway. If itís too hot you can take it off.

Comedian Colm OíRegan explores the phenomenon of the Irish Mammy and what she might say about everything from the Ďnew massí to the cardinal sin of not owning a cough bottle and the importance of airing clothes properly. The global influence of the Irish Mammy, through history, science, politics and literature, is undeniable. Did you know, for instance, that Hamlet had an Irish Mammy?

So if youíre an Irish Mammy, have one, know one or suspect you might be turning into one, this book will act as your guide. But be aware that though this book might think it knows it all, it doesnít, only Mammy knows it all.
