He is Captain John Lacroix, home from Britain's disastrous campaign against Napoleon's forces in Spain.Gradually Lacroix recovers his health, but not his peace of mind. He will not - cannot - talk about the war or face the memory of what took place on the retreat to Corunna.

But as the short northern summer reaches its zenith, the shadow of the enemy is creeping closer. Freedom, for John Lacroix, will come at a high price.

Now is the Time
By Melvyn Bragg
In this gripping novel, Melvyn Bragg brings an extraordinary episode in English history to fresh, urgent life.At the end of May 1381, the fourteen-year-old King of England had reason to be fearful: the plague had returned, the royal coffers were empty and a draconian poll tax was being widely evaded. Yet Richard, bolstered by his powerful, admired mother, felt secure in his God-given right to reign. But within two weeks, the unthinkable happened: a vast force of common people invaded London, led by a former soldier, Walter Tyler, and the radical preacher John Ball, demanding freedom, equality and the complete uprooting of the Church and state. And for three intense, violent days, it looked as if they would sweep all before them.Now is the Time depicts the events of the Peasants' Revolt on both a grand and intimate scale, vividly portraying its central figures and telling an archetypal tale of an epic struggle between the powerful and the apparently powerless.
By Allan Massie
At the beginning of the year 66, Emperor Nero ruled the Roman Empire. By the end of it, Nero had committed suicide and three of his successors were dead, and out of the carnage of civil war at home and a nationalistic uprising in Judaea a new emperor, Vespasian, had emerged. Here Scaurus, once the lover of both Vespasian's son and daughter, looks back on the whole extraordinary year and recreates a world of treachery, malice, passion and-occasionally-quiet heroism. Drawing on his formidable knowledge of Roman history, Allan Massie brings the distant past vividly to life and creates telling parallels with the present.

The New Revelations
By Neale Donald Walsch
Neale Donald Walsch's profound conversation with God continues with a "New Revelation" - brought to us at a time when we need it most. This life-changing book offers some possible, penetrating answers to the questions of our day, providing the tools to pull ourselves out of despair and towards a new world vision. Addressing the zeitgeist following the tide of events of September 11th, we are shown that the violence, loss, sorrow and terror of our world cannot be eliminated through political or economic action, but only by changing our beliefs. Five fallacies about life, combined with the five fallacies about God, continue to feed a deadly misconception that leads to devastating world events governed by violence and crisis. Through challenging the fallacies of our beliefs we can move forward, building at last a new world of peace and harmony based on our new, true beliefs about God and life.
