BESTSELLER The novel A Gallipoli Soldier’s Secret is the story of a New Zealand woman’s pilgrimage to Turkey to discover the truth about her great-grandfather’s fate - a Gallipoli soldier who never returned home. During her search she stumbles over dark secrets which have been hidden in a Turkish village for decades. They are so sensitive that disclosure threatens embarrassment for villagers and two old foes -New Zealand and Turkey.
Lyrically written, A Gallipoli Soldier’s Secret paints an informative picture of life in a Turkish village, Turkish culture and history, and the suffering and annihilation Turks endured in WWI. It follows the war through the stories of two soldiers – New Zealander Alistair John Taylor and Turk Ali Osman. Their lives converge with unexpected consequences.
A Gallipoli Soldier’s Secret is unique in that it provides a glimpse of the war from a Turkish perspective. It also vividly reveals village life and a journey of inner conflict and self-discovery.

When Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal both shockingly exited Wimbledon in the early rounds of the 2013 championships, the level of expectation on Scotsman Andy Murray to become the first British champion of the men’s competition since 1936—already high—reached fever pitch. Overcoming a two-set deficit in the quarterfinals, Murray would go on to face world number one Novak Djokovic in the final and, after three hours filled with drama, tension, and brilliant tennis, become Wimbledon champion in front of 15,000 Centre Court fans and millions more watching on television. This fascinating and revealing biography examines how the player from Dunblane, Scotland—a country not known for its tennis heritage—rose to the top of the sport. Veteran tennis journalist Mark Hodgkinson examines the individuals who have influenced Murray’s career, including his family, his coaches, and his girlfriend, and assesses how the Scot has won over a dubious and critical public. This biography gets to the heart of Andy Murray’s extraordinary and dramatic journey.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater : The House and It's History

Organic form was Frank Lloyd Wright's credo, and its most splendid embodiment is Fallingwater, designed and built for the Pittsburgh merchant Edgar Kaufmann in the 1930s. The private dwelling, which juts directly over a waterfall at Bear Run in western Pennsylvania, is the boldest and most personal architectural statement of Wright's mature years.
This volume is a total revision - both in text and illustrations - of the standard document of Fallingwater. With the opening of the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives, valuable new material has come to light that has provided the basis for this completely rewritten and expanded account. The new material has enabled the author, Wright expert Donald Hoffmann, to tell a more comprehensive, vivid and authentic story.

If you try to explain Michael von Hassel's photographic approach, it sounds paradoxical at first: by representing reality in an alienated way - for example, by lending it radically intense colour - he sharpens our own view of what is real. This hyper-realism works in amazing ways. When the Munich-born photographer captures an empty Oktoberfest tent, a mountain view, or a street scene from a big city in his innovative way, we discover details that might normally escape us. In so doing, von Hassel grants his audience a new perspective on the world and garners permanent place in international exhibitions. Furthermore, von Hassel was honoured as the best contemporary artist at the 2009 Hot Air Fair in Basel, Switzerland, and subsequently attracted an avid group of collectors. Apart from the photographer's distinctive approach, his images also possess a particular quality that explains their popularity: they are simply irresistibly beautiful.

The creation of artistic patterns dates back to our ancient past. From Egypt to Morocco, Greece to China, patterns and pattern makers played a valuable role in the creation of early arts and crafts. Ornamental carpets, tapestries, fabrics and other adornments from the Classical period, through the Middle Ages and into the 20th century predominantly featured flora, fauna and ancient symbols. Classic Patterns takes inspiration from this rich history to draw out new and fresh nuances in pattern creation. A talented group of designers including Charlotte Day and Nicoletta Pagano are featured in over 200 pages of exquisite design. Two distinct sections feature figurative and abstract patterns, and while clearly influenced by the past, new technology has allowed these designs to come into their own. A CD-ROM packed with classic patterns is included for those seeking further inspiration. Classic Patterns is a wonderful resource for any designers reference library.
