Top 6 Easter Holiday Reads

Top 6 Easter Holiday Reads

Whether you are soaking up the last of the summer sun on the beach, relaxing in the bush or just taking some time out at home on the couch this Easter – these books will keep you intrigued and entertained! Here are our top 6 Easter holiday reads.

The Twelve Tribes of Hattie is a highly recommended read – and it’s recommended by none other than Oprah Winfrey!

An extraordinary novel, and a searing portrait of twentieth-century America. Following the tragic path of Hattie Shepherd and her 9 children in their search for the American Dream, this is a heart-breaking story about guilt, sacrifice, responsibility, and the ferocious power of love.

THE SPIRAL HOUSE {Claire Robertson}
The Spiral House is a grand exploration of love, wig-making and the age of Enlightenment. Set in the Cape Colony, it’s the tale of two women, two hundred years apart, and their two stories that echo across the centuries. They expose that which binds us together, and that which sets us free.

An exhilirating debut novel from Simon’s Town based, Claire Robertson.

GHOSTMAN {Roger Hobbs}
Oceans Eleven meets Catch Me if You Can meets Lee Child in this pulse-pounding extraordinary debut thriller.

Jack Delton is a man who is difficult to get hold of, especially since only thirty people know he exists! Not all of them believe he is even alive and only one of them knows his real name. So, when Jack Delton unexpectedly gets an email, he knows it’s bad news. In Ghostman, Jack must make a man disappear, locate missing millions and deliver it to its rightful owners - all in 24 hours. A page-turning, break-neck paced debut novel from a new talent of the genre, Roger Hobbs.

UNTIL THE END OF TIME {Danielle Steel}
Two couples for whom love and fate are powerful, irresistible forces.

Bill, a dedicated young lawyer working in New York who leaves everything he trained for to follow his dream to become a minister in rural Wyoming and Jenny, his fashion stylist wife, who leaves the milieu and life she loves to join him. The certainty they share is that their destinies are linked forever. Robert is a hard-working independent book publisher in Manhattan, looking for one big hit novel to publish and Lillibet, a young Amish woman, living as though in the seventeenth century.

In the hands of bestselling author Danielle Steel, these two remarkable relationships come together in unexpected and surprising ways, as lovers are lost, and find each other again. Love and fate are powerful, irresistible forces, as Steel proves to us here, in a book about courage, change, risk, and hope… and love that never dies.

Carol Campbell is a home-grown author whose latest novel is one of the most heart-breaking stories that is both entirely different and utterly extraordinary. My Children have Faces tells the tale of a ‘karretjiemense’ family. Kapok, his companion Muis, and their three children are dirt-poor travellers who roam the Karoo in their donkey cart in search of whatever work they can find – and to flee from the wrath of Miskiet.

A suspenseful and moving novel about the nomadic karretjiemense of the Karoo.

The Childhood of Jesus is the latest work from South African born, Booker Prize (not once, but twice awarded!) and Nobel Prize for Literature winning author, JM Coetzee. It is both profound and beautiful. It tells the story of a man and a boy who travel across oceans to arrive in a new land. Here, they are both assigned a new name and an age and held in a camp in the desert whilst they are taught the language of their new country.
