Wilf Yates joined the army to make a difference, but nothing prepared him for his place in history—or in the heart of a nurse named Ann Davis. As a member of the Australian Imperial Forces, Wilf took part in the capture of Mont St Quentin in France, one of the greatest achievements of any army in World War One. In that fateful campaign, Australia suffered some three thousand causalities over three days of fighting, but those lives were not lost in vain; the victory helped bring the war to an unexpected end. Wilf’s heroic tour of duty was brought to a halt with a case of common trench foot. In the London hospital, nurse, Ann, inspired his imagination. What would prompt a young girl to give up a life of relative safety to work amidst the horrors of war? She healed more than his body; she healed his heart. Their love story—inspired by the wartime diaries of the author’s father—will transport readers to the terrifying and heady times of the Great War. After the war ended, Wilf returned to Australia to start a new life together in the lonely bush of Australia. There, he reclaimed his pre-war life as a timber cutter and bullock driver to support his new family. When World War Two started, he answered the call to duty to serve as an army inspector in Newcastle. Danger is never far away in this lovely, thrilling story of mud, blood, and romance.

The classic, magnificent bestselling novel about Richard III, now in a special thirtieth anniversary edition with a new preface by the author In this triumphant combination of scholarship and storytelling, Sharon Kay Penman redeems Richard III—vilified as the bitter, twisted, scheming hunchback who murdered his nephews, the princes in the Tower—from his maligned place in history. Born into the treacherous courts of fifteenth-century England, in the midst of what history has called The War of the Roses, Richard was raised in the shadow of his charismatic brother, King Edward IV. Loyal to his friends and passionately in love with the one woman who was denied him, Richard emerges as a gifted man far more sinned against than sinning. With revisions throughout and a new author's preface discussing the astonishing discovery of Richard's remains five centuries after his death, Sharon Kay Penman's brilliant classic is more powerful and glorious than ever.

During her short time as a ward in Queen Marguerite's Lancastrian court, fifteen-year-old Isobel has had many suitors ask for her hand, but the spirited beauty is blind to all but Yorkist Sir John Neville. It is nothing short of a miracle when the Queen allows Isobel's marriage to the enemy, albeit at a hefty price. All around Isobel and John rages a lawless war. It is only their passion that can see them through the bloody siege of London by the Duke of York, the violent madness of Queen Marguerite, and the devolution of Isobel's meek uncle into the Butcher of England. For theirs is an everlasting love that fears not the scratch of thorns, from either the Red Rose or the White.

Not illustrated. 1900 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER XLII THE DEVIL'S DEN The day came, the armies awoke, and, standing up, looked at each other. They were all there, or soon would be, one hundred and sixty thousand men face to face--ninety thousand for the North, seventy thousand for the South. The sun, slow and majestic, rose above the hills; its light in sheaves of red and yellow fell over the two armies. The brilliant rays lingered in the crannies of the rocks, and gilded the bodies of the dead. The night dews dried up, the vapours were gone, and the air felt pure and fresh. There was Gettysburg, looking from our lines like the peaceful country town it had always been before yesterday, with its trim houses and the red gold of the young sun shining on dome and cupola. The two armies gazed at each other curiously and without hostility. The fierceness, the bitterness, the hatred that marked this war in common with other wars, was not theirs. Such emotions were for the people behind them; their own, if they had felt them, had long since disappeared in the shock of battle. The soldiers on the opposite hill were enemies, veterans like themselves, worthy of respect; it was not for them to malign men who might soon prove themselves their conquerors. Shaftoe and I stood side by side. Neither had slept in that night between battles, but I did not feel the need of rest. I had forgotten such things in the deep satisfaction that followed the rescue of Elinor. We rubbed the vapours from our eyes and turned our faces to the west, where stood the Army of Northern Virginia, glittering in the sunlight. A bird alighted on a bush near us, and, unafraid of armies, began to pour out a stream of song. Shaftoe looked at him as he sung, full-throated, upon his bough, and repeated aloud: "0 for a beaker...
