The Irish Granny is on hand to teach you all you need to know about country cooking.
Every recipe has a story and every story has a secret. For folks in Tatatonka, Iowa, the best recipes in town, and therefore the best secrets, have long been kept in the coveted recipe book of local cooking legend Trudie Melody. When Trudie becomes ill, her granddaughter, successful (at least by Tatatonka standards) garden gnome maker Margot, decides it's no time to be timid and boldly asks for the recipe book. Thinking she's secured the book for herself, Margot's life goes into a tailspin when, after her grandma's death, a crooked probate lawyer determines the book will go to Sheryl, Margot's shrewd first cousin, who needs the book to bail out her flailing career. Margot's only recourse is to sue Sheryl before she can take possession of the treasured book. The courtroom takes on a voyeuristic and carnival-like atmosphere when the Judge rules to have the recipe book read aloud in order to determine the rightful owner

From One End of the Rainbow: A Story about the Life Inside the Irish Defence Forces and Beyond is about how the truth can be clouded by what's perceived as reality. With the "truth," everybody is blameless. There are no "fall guys" - no victims, no reason, no justice - just a carefully woven sequence of events with no beginning and no end that will stand the test of time. Thirty-two years later, the "truth" is confronted with reality. The whole panoramic consequences of that takes its toll on the conscience and raises its head to be exposed in its very raw format. This invites the reader to determine the real truth, be the judge and the jury, and pass sentence. It exposes the real "politics" of the Government. How in fact the "privileged" are protected at all costs. It ascribes the destitute feeling of betrayal that eats into the very vertebrae of the real meaning of military life. The book also gives an insight into daily military life, the characters, the routine, and the effect it has on family life. Being a soldier is a vocation that can only be compared to religious life, because the feeling is the same when you retire. The reality is, an old soldier never dies.

William and Donna, born on the same day in Dublin, have almost met many times - on their tenth birthday, when Donna spotted Will carrying a colourful bunch of balloons; the day Will, a law student, visited the bakery where Donna worked; and an introduction by mutual friends that never came to pass. Over the years, they have kept just missing each other. Then, on a sunny day at a café in Auckland, they finally meet. And, in that moment, thousands of miles away from home, they're exactly where they're supposed to be. But a terrible disaster strikes, and they are separated - left with the memory of the brief time they had together, and dreams of what might have been. Perhaps all is not lost however, and fate will bring them together once more ...
