By Ivy Pembroke

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

More adventures with the residents of Christmas Street who were introduced in Snowflakes on Christmas Street - wonderful characters - and a dog - that you'll want to curl up with all Christmas!

'Heartwarmingly festive - if only all streets were like Christmas Street!' Ali McNamara

Sam is about to propose to his girlfriend Libby, and his neighbours in Christmas Street all think they know the right way to do it. With their help - and sometimes hinderance - Sam gains a fiancée and the wedding planning begins.

Meanwhile, Sam's nine-year-old son Teddy and his friend Pari - with their constant companion Jack the street dog - are fascinated by the arrival of a mysterious new neighbour on the street who has rented the empty, run-down house. Their attempts to spy on her are thwarted by her staying indoors with the curtains drawn most of the time. But soon Christmas Street begins to work its magic and Millie is reluctantly drawn into street activities.

As Millie starts to relax into thinking she can have a different life, maybe even with Jasper, the local carpenter, someone turns up from her past to threaten that. But with all of the street looking out for her, Millie's Christmas will be filled with hope and promise.

John Brandon

In eleven expertly crafted stories, John Brandon gives us a stunning assortment of men and women at the edge of possibility - gamblers and psychics, wanderers and priests, all of them on the verge of finding out what they can get away with, and what they can't. Ranging from haunted deserts to alligator-filled swamps, these are stories of foul luck and strange visitations, delivered with deadpan humour by an unforgettable voice.The New York Times praised Brandon's last novel for a style that combined Elmore Leonard and Charles Portis, and now Brandon brings that same darkly American artistry to his very first story collection, demonstrating once again that he belongs in the top ranks of contemporary writers.

Betty Barnes has been brought up by her older sister, Kate, in a small West Country village, but dreams of the bright lights of Hollywood and of being a movie star. Day dreaming is one way for Betty to escape the realities of school life where she is cruelly bullied - because Kate is living in sin with a married man and is rumoured to have used her healing skills to help more than one local girl out of trouble. Like her sister, Betty has inherited psychic and healing gifts from her forebears. She also experiences memories of an earlier time when she was the local Wise Woman, guardian of a nearby mystical cave. But when Betty gets into trouble at school, she feels that no one - not even Kate - understands her, and she runs away to the biggest city she can think of. London in the 1930s is hardly a hospitable place for a young teenage girl to find her fortune, and Betty soon finds that she cannot turn her back on her magic for ever...
