All To Live For

Fighting Cancer. Finding Hope.

By Emma Hannigan

  • Paperback
  • £14.99

A remarkable and powerfully uplifting memoir of laughing and living in the face of cancer by the Irish No. 1 bestselling author.

*All to Live For is an extended and updated edition of the bestselling memoir Talk to the Headscarf *

In 2005 Emma Hannigan was thirty two years old, happily married to her long-time love with two young children. Her world was shattered when she discovered that she had the rare gene BRCA1, meaning a 50% chance of developing ovarian cancer and an 85% chance of developing breast cancer. To reduce the risk, Emma had a double mastectomy and both ovaries removed. But in 2007 she received the devastating news that cancer had struck anyway.

Now, twelve years later, Emma Hannigan is battling cancer for the tenth time.

With her trademark warmth and wisdom, Emma shares her journey and her advice on everything from skincare and hair loss to how to keep a sense of humour through it all.

All to Live For is a story of one woman's determination not to let cancer win; a story of strength and inspiration, hope and love. And of never giving up.

Road to Rouen

Ben Hatch
Authors:
Ben Hatch

Ben Hatch is on the road again. Commissioned to write a guidebook about France (despite not speaking any French) he sets off with visions of relaxing chateaux and refined dining. Ten thousand miles later his family's been attacked by a donkey, had a run-in with a death-cult and, after a near drowning and a calamitous wedding experience involving a British spy, his own marriage is in jeopardy. A combination of obsessions about mosquitoes, French gravel and vegetable theme parks mean it's a bumpy ride as Ben takes a stand against tyrannical French pool attendants, finds himself running with the bulls in Pamplona and almost starring in a snuff movie after a near fatal decision to climb into a millionaire's Chevrolet Blazer. Funny and poignant, Road to Rouen asks important questions about life, marriage and whether it's ever acceptable to tape baguette to your children's legs to smuggle lunch into Disneyland Paris.

Authors:
Ivor Peters

Please note this has been optimised for display on tablets and colour devices.Bursting with delicious recipes and stunning illustrations, this is a food memoir like no other.Curry has become an integral part of our staple diet but few of us are aware of what 'authentic' means when it comes to Britain's favourite food - how it is cooked and what makes it so sublime. Instead we have been patronised with dumbed-down versions of wonderfully spiced dishes through the provision of gooey mixtures that slime their way out of jars. 'No more!' cries self-proclaimed Urban Rajah Ivor Peters. The search for homemade, straightforward fragrant food ends here. Packed full of inspiring stories and generations-old recipes, this book opens the door into a world of family cooking that will teach us how to cook delicious curry in our own homes. So put down that jar of low-fat chicken tikka masala, rip up your takeaway menu and let Ivor lead you through a journey of spice that will leave you revelling in colour, yearning for the delicate smells of cardamom and cinnamon and desperate to tear a chapatti to shreds and plunge it into a curry feast of your own making.

However, towards the end of her 20s, it had become clear that finding this one was actually pretty tricky. In fact, she'd soon realized that every boyfriend she'd whipped into shape and then broken up with, had settled down with someone else almost immediately. The training that Charlotte had given them had set them up for life just not life with her.In this witty, intimate memoir, Charlotte shares her experiences and insights on dating, breaking up and starting over again. It wasn't an easy journey, but now happily settled with The Beau, has Charlotte finally reached the coveted status of The One?
