The first novel by acclaimed Greek writer Lena Manta to appear in English translation, The House by the River is an intimate, emotionally powerful saga following five young women as they realize that no matter the men they choose, the careers they pursue, or the children they raise, the only constant is home. Theodora knows she can’t keep her five beautiful daughters at home forever—they’re too curious, too free spirited, too like their late father. And so, before each girl leaves the small house on the riverside at the foot of Mount Olympus, Theodora makes sure they know they are always welcome to return. A devoted and resilient mother, Theodora has lived through World War II, through the Nazi occupation of Greece, and through her husband’s death, and now she endures the twenty-year-long silence of her daughters’ absence. Her children have their own lives—they’ve married, traveled the world, and courted romance, fame, and even tragedy. But as they become modern, independent women in pursuit of their dreams, Theodora knows they need her—and each other—more than ever. Have they grown so far apart that they’ve forgotten their childhood house in its tiny village, or will their broken hearts finally lead them home?

'At last, from the crest of a little cliff, we gazed with emotion on the rushing waters of the great river. How touching it was to see again our childhood friend, and to think that the very waters we now gaze upon will, after who knows how many weeks, and after how many strange sights and unknown scenes, pass our childhood homes.' Sid Smith's second novel is set in the early 1900's, in a place as inaccessible, mysterious and beguiling as the setting of SOMETHING LIKE A HOUSE. In A HOUSE BY THE RIVER, two western missionaries visit a lonely community by the river. The wife, Grace, keeps a diary, and through this the reader begins to find out about Chinese ideograms and the foundations of Christianity - something so world-shattering that a prominent Chinese official wants it to remain suppressed...

Incorporating her travels abroad, her experience studying the neutral mask technique developed by Jacques Lecoq, and her return to the river house she and her mother often visited, the poet assembles a guide to survival in the face of seemingly insurmountable pain. Even in the dark, Keith finds the ways we can be “filled with this unexpected feeling of living.”

A House by the River journeys through the six years Diane Fahey lived with her mother, Patricia, as her carer, and ends at a point five years after her death. Both the challenges and radiant moments of the relationship of mother and daughter are given enduring form in poems that hold the tension between hope and truth, charting a gradual grief - then loss, and its aftermath. The same life-tide that swept us apart has brought us to this grateful, elegaic love, the hub we turn on - Demeter and Kore becoming each other, held in a graced affinity between loss and loss. Twilight summer. -'Breath' A House by the River is also, in part, a record of the poet's creative life, sustained by the worlds of art and of nature. Along with the garden surrounding her mother's house, Fahey celebrates the wider natural environment of Barwon Heads, opening out - as in Sea Wall and River Light - large perspectives of river, sea and sky, with the presence of birds an unfailing inspiration. But the central power of the book lies in its engagement with the mysteries of healing and spiritual resilience, as Fahey witnesses to the courage and grace of her mother's last years, so leaving a memorable portrait of her. What would I need to know, to wear sunlight as richly, sparsely, as you do now: your face tilted to receive the wind's balm; that look of earthed serenity; body poised as a cormorant's, wings outstretched. -'Garden Portrait' Diane Fahey is one of Australia's foremost poets. She has been the recipient of various poetry prizes and literary grants, as well as of writer's residencies in Italy, Ireland, Scotland and Australia. Diane lives in Clifton Springs, a bayside village on the Bellarine Peninsula in the state of Victoria. Her website:

It is the late 1940s, and the Broody River runs through a maze of sandbanks into the Coral Sea. On its southern bank lies the holiday town of Baroodibah. But its northern shore is wild - unsettled except for the River House, an old weatherboard box on stumps where the Carlyle family take their holidays. For four-year-old Laurie Carlyle the house and its untold stories fire the imagination. It is a place of boating trips and nature collections, of the wind howling, the sheoaks sighing and the pelicans soaring into the blue sky. But when a squabble between Laurie and her older brother Tony takes an unexpected turn, she detects the first hints of family discord. As the years pass, the River House holidays seem to shine a light on the undercurrents in the family: the secret from her mother's past, the bitterness between Tony and their father Doug, and her sister Miranda's increasingly erratic and dangerous behavior . . . Following the family's story through the decades, The River House is a richly nostalgic novel about love and betrayal, personal tragedy and thwarted ambition, illusion and remorse. Above all it is about change, and the slow but relentless march of time.
