Product description

Lale Sokolov is forced to tattoo numbers on other prisoners in Auschwitz, a job that grants him enough leeway to help keep other inmates alive. When he meets Gita as she waits in line to be tattooed, it’s love at first sight. Despite the horror of their surroundings, the two make a pact to survive and build a life together. A fictionalised telling of a true story, this harrowing tale of survival is both heart-breaking and heart-warming in equal measure.

Annie Dunne

Annie Dunne and her cousin Sarah live and work on a small farm in a remote and beautiful part of Wicklow in the 1950s. All around them life is changing, and when Annie's nephew and his wife go to London in search of work, their two children are sent to spend the summer with their great aunt.

The Temporary Gentleman

Jack McNulty is a 'temporary gentleman', an Irishman whose commission in the British army in the Second World War was never permanent. In 1957, sitting in his lodgings in Accra, he urgently sets out to write his story. He feels he cannot take one step further, or even hardly a breath, without looking back at all that has befallen him.

The Missing Ones

The hole they dug was not deep. A white flour bag encased the little body. Three small faces watched from the window, eyes black with terror. The child in the middle spoke without turning his head. 'I wonder which one of us will be next?'
