June Winner and New Competition

Were you one of the hundreds that voted in June's Book of the Month competition? In our June competition, we asked our members to vote on this poll with which book they would like to win for themselves or if they are part of a book club, win copies for them too! Providing they had added "reading" as an interest on Nabo. All thanks to our friends at Hachette.

The results are in, and Nabo's Book of the Month is A Shout in the Ruins by Kevin Powers, with 68% of the votes. Set just before and during the Civil War - A Shout in the Ruins pinpoints with unerring emotional depth the nature of random violence, the necessity of love and compassion, and the fragility and preciousness of life.

Congratulations to... Gwen M from Lockleys in SA! Copies will be sent in the post to you shortly.

The Peacock Summer by Hannah Richell

Two summers, decades apart. Two women whose lives are forever entwined. And a house that holds the secrets that could free them both.

At twenty-six, Lillian feels ancient and exhausted. Her marriage to Charles Oberon has not turned out the way she thought it would. To her it seems she is just another beautiful object captured within the walls of Cloudesley, her husband's Chilterns manor house. But, with a young step-son and a sister to care for, Lillian accepts there is no way out for her. Then Charles makes an arrangement with an enigmatic artist visiting their home and her world is turned on its head.

Maggie Oberon ran from the hurt and resentment she caused. Half a world away, in Australia, it was easier to forget, to pretend she didn't care. But when her grandmother, Lillian, falls ill she must head back to Cloudesley. Forced to face her past, she will learn that all she thought was real, all that she held so close, was never as it seemed.


Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn - A major HBO & Foxtel series starring Amy Adams, from the director of Big Little Lies - Airing 9 July on Foxtel

When two girls are abducted and killed in Missouri, journalist Camille Preaker is sent back to her home town to report on the crimes.

Long-haunted by a childhood tragedy and estranged from her mother for years, Camille suddenly finds herself installed once again in her family's mansion, reacquainting herself with her distant mother and the half-sister she barely knows - a precocious 13-year-old who holds a disquieting grip on the town.

As Camille works to uncover the truth about these violent crimes, she finds herself identifying with the young victims - a bit too strongly. Clues keep leading to dead ends, forcing Camille to unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past to get at the story. Dogged by her own demons, Camille will have to confront what happened to her years before if she wants to survive this homecoming.
