Emma Hannigan
Authors:
Emma Hannigan

A remarkable and powerfully uplifting memoir of living with cancer by the Number One bestselling author In 2005 Emma Hannigan was thirty two years old, happily married to her long-time love, with two young children. Her world was shattered when she discovered that she had the rare gene BRCA1, meaning a 50% chance of developing ovarian cancer and an 85% chance of developing breast cancer. To reduce the risk, Emma had a double mastectomy and both ovaries removed. But in 2007 she received the devastating news that cancer had struck anyway. Now, twelve years later, Emma Hannigan is battling cancer for the tenth time. With her trademark warmth and wisdom, she shares her journey and her advice on everything from skincare and hair loss to how to keep a sense of humour through it all. All to Live For is a story of one woman's determination not to let cancer win; a story of strength and inspiration, hope and love. And never giving up. ALL TO LIVE FOR is an updated and extended edition of the bestselling memoir TALK TO THE HEADSCARF.

An ordinary Monday. at an ordinary bank, in an ordinary town. There was no way of knowing what was about to happen.Afterwards . . . The first thing Martha thinks about is having a drink. There are six reasons why she shouldn't; she wrote them down over a year ago. Two of the reasons are the same. A name. She didn't think she'd ever see him again.Roman, a fourteen year old Polish immigrant, is on the run. From the police. From Jimmy and his gang. He understands now, what it means to be caught between a rock and a hard place. Tobias, old and alone, lies in a hospital bed in Dublin where the memories of Dresden are insistent visitors.And for Cillian, the detective investigating the robbery, the past is like a current, pulling him back, reminding him of all he'd had. All he'd lost.Each of the four is running from the moments that brought them here. To a place where the past cannot be undone and the future cannot be known.A place called now.

'Luke Waters had more than 20 years on the job. What he saw, what he heard and what he did will make you sit up, stay up and keep reading - and that's only what he can tell you.' - Ed Conlon, Bestselling Author of Blue Blood.Finglas native Luke Waters had dreamed of following his grandfather and brother into An Garda Siochana, until, as for so many other Irish men and women in the 1980s, America beckoned. But Luke never lost sight of his dream, in spite of the hurdles he had to overcome, and in August 1993, he joined the ranks of New York's finest.Beginning life as a 'rookie', driven by a combination of chutzpah and determination, Waters became a homicide detective in one of the toughest places in the world, The Bronx. Here, he would see the best and the worst, from the heroism of fellow detectives, to the ravages of crack cocaine, from the constant grind of homicide cases, to the terrible fallout of 9/11. NYPD Green is a no-holds-barred account of the people and the cases, but also an insight into the dark side of a job where corruption and bravery often go hand in hand.The story of an Irishman made good, of the American dream, NYPD Green also pays tribute to one of the hardest jobs there is.

Nowhere's Child

Kari Rosvall, Naomi Linehan
Authors:
Kari Rosvall, Naomi Linehan

Up until the age of 64, much of Kari Rosvall's early life was shrouded in mystery. Then, one day, a letter arrived through the post . . . In it was a small black-and-white photograph of Kari as a young baby, the first she had ever seen. Kari was to finally discover the dark secret of her conception: She was a Lebensborn child, part of Hitler's 'Spring of Life' programme, which encouraged Nazi soldiers to have children with Scandinavian women in order to create an Aryan race. And so began a journey back to her roots: to Norway where, at ten days old, she was taken from her mother, packed into a crate and sent to Germany to join the other Lebensborn children; to post-War Germany and her eventual rescue by the Red Cross from an attic, a tiny, neglected outcast of a dead regime. Nowhere's Child is a remarkable story of reconciliation, of forging new beginnings from a dark past and of the discovery of family later in life. Ultimately, it is the life-affirming account of what it really means to find a place called home.

Vanishing Ireland

James Fennell, Turtle Bunbury
Authors:
James Fennell, Turtle Bunbury

Vanishing Ireland is a unique collection of portrait interviews looking at the dying ways and traditions of Irish life and taking us back to an Ireland virtually unrecognisable to today's post-boom generation. Illustrated with over a hundred evocative and stunning photographs, we meet the people and customs that shaped the cultural identity of the Irish nation. Through their own words and memories, sixty-four men and women transport us back to a time when people lived off the land and the sea, when music and storytelling were essential parts of life, when a person was defined by their trade. Divided into five parts - Children of the Field, Children of the Music, Children of the Horse, Children of the Trade and Children of the Water - Vanishing Ireland brings together the stories of those who lived through Ireland's formative years. We hear of children harassed by the Black and Tans, of céilís in kitchens, and the rigours of working in the fields, of the wonder of electricity and the devastation of emigration. From coalminers to saddlers, farmers to fishermen, along with horse dealers, publicans, housemaids and musicians - these remarkably poignant interviews and photographs, in their simplicity and honesty, will make you laugh and cry but, above all, will provide a valuable chronicle that connects twenty-first century Ireland to a rapidly disappearing world.
