61 The Arthur Moreau Story
Booth, Guy Arena Books 2011 1906791740 / 9781906791742 Soft cover New Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
New paperback. RRP. 14.99. A unique work of fiction, combining a horror story encapsulated in mystery, stark realism and fantasy, and thick with ironic humour throughout. The gripping action of the drama unfolds in a rich environment of palatial houses, offices, and churches, amongst a coterie of remarkable and often artistic people implicated in a set of sinister forces beyond their control or understanding. The narrator of the story, working in the darkened and dusty milieu of a renowned international second hand book store, could hardly be committed to a more sedate trade, when through business contacts he is suddenly whisked away on a series of life-threatening adventures. 232pp. 302097

80 Mindfulness for Women: Declutter Your Mind, Simplify Your Life, Find Time to Be
Burch, Vidyamala ; Irvin, Claire Piatkus 2016 0349408513 / 9780349408514 Soft Cover New 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
New paperback. RRP 13.99. No matter who we are, or what stage of life we are at, we all long for similar things; to be happy, connected with others, in touch with a sense of calm and peace, vital, alive and joyful. And we long to be able to ride out the tough patches that hit all of us from time to time with some degree of grace and dignity.The good news is that we can fulfil these longings at any time, in any place. They are only a moment away, a breath away. We can learn how to be comfortable with our body, know and understand our mind, and love our heart. It isn't difficult, long-winded or time-consuming. In doing so you'll feel happier in your own skin, less stressed, more confident, more capable and more at ease with yourself and life.This is what Mindfulness for Women is about. It is a practical guide to coming home to yourself in each present moment. To finding the ledge behind the waterfall. To resting in the depths of the ocean rather than being tossed about by surface waves. Mindfulness is a potent antidote to anxiety, stress, depression, exhaustion and irritability. It leads to a greater sense of contentment and can also reduce addictive and self-destructive behavioural patterns. This book will enable you to experience the benefits for yourself. It's not designed as a lengthy course but is solutions-based. It's fast - evidence shows that a little bit of mindfulness goes a long way. It's also bespoke - you can read all of it cover to cover, or simply dip in and out, depending on what you want to focus on. You can listen to whichever meditation track suits you at any given time and you can run tracks together if you want to meditate for longer periods. It's designed to suit your life and priorities now and well into the future. pp. 342. 058140

81 The Muse
Burton, Jessie Picador London 2016 144725094X / 9781447250944 First Edition Hardcover New New Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
New hardback. First impression. RRP. 12.99. 445pp. A picture hides a thousand words .On a hot July day in 1967, Odelle Bastien climbs the stone steps of the Skelton gallery in London, knowing that her life is about to change forever. Having struggled to find her place in the city since she arrived from Trinidad five years ago, she has been offered a job as a typist under the tutelage of the glamorous and enigmatic Marjorie Quick. But though Quick takes Odelle into her confidence, and unlocks a potential she didn t know she had, she remains a mystery - no more so than when a lost masterpiece with a secret history is delivered to the gallery. The truth about the painting lies in 1936 and a large house in rural Spain, where Olive Schloss, the daughter of a renowned art dealer, is harbouring ambitions of her own. Into this fragile paradise come artist and revolutionary Isaac Robles and his half-sister Teresa, who immediately insinuate themselves into the Schloss family, with explosive and devastating consequences .Seductive, exhilarating and suspenseful, The Muse is an unforgettable novel about aspiration and identity, love and obsession, authenticity and deception - a masterpiece from Jessie Burton, the million-copy bestselling author of The Miniaturist. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. 305914
