One day begins, much like any other, for a girl called Rose, but soon strange things start happening for her and her best friend, Lilly. It may have something to do with the river that runs through the valley below her castle or it may simply be because children can't help walking through mysterious doors, pressing tempting buttons, ignoring warning notices, messing with magic and generally being too curious for their own good. Whatever the reason, a school trip turns into a breathless adventure across time and space and through the elements of earth, air, fire and water ... especially water. There must be something in the water. One Big Story is a project run by Off The Page Drama to help children get excited about reading and writing, to inspire their creativity and to give them greater confidence in their ideas.

Olympic rowers Gary and Paul O’Donovan may be the face of Irish rowing and Skibbereen Rowing Club, and have enormously increased the popularity of rowing in Ireland, but they're just one piece of a much larger jigsaw. Without their club and the people behind the scenes, they wouldn’t be Olympic silver medalists, 2018 world champions, former European champions and, in Paul's case, a three-time world champion. Almost one hundred Skibbereen Rowing Club athletes have represented Ireland at various regattas over the years; a staggering figure when viewed in light of the size of the club. Founded in 1970, it is now the undisputed most successful rowing club in the country, producing five Olympic rowers since 2000 and four world champions between 2016 and 2018. It is the characters involved in the club, the coaches, members and the athletes themselves, who come together to make Skibbereen Rowing Club what it is. Something in the Water reveals what goes on behind the scenes to create an environment that allows locals to excel on the national and international stages. The story is told through the people and families involved, showing how relatable they are to people around the country.

Willoughby's Wildlife Story Books Series This book of short stories is part of an educational project designed to facilitate 'kids teaching kids' about local wildlife in the Willoughby area. Year 5 classes at each primary school in the Willoughby City LGA were asked to focus on their local 'water catchment' and the wildlife that depends on it. Then they shared their knowledge by writing a short story on a particular animal and reading it to a younger student. Every school that participated in the project has short stories and or artwork published in this compilation book, which is part of a collection of story books held at local and school libraries across Willoughby. This year Willoughby's stories on catchments and wildlife will go to schools and libraries across the Sydney region with the help of special funding from The Greater Sydney Local Land Services. Thus spreading the conservation message further.

Go-getter Ariel Anderson is back in Bliss, West Virginia. She's got to shoot a TV spot, and undo her (undeserved) wild-child reputation. But there's something downright sexy happening in Bliss. And inexplicably, Ariel aches to be more naughty than nice. Especially after colliding with Rex Houston, the hottest CDC virus-chasing "cowboy" this side of the mountains. He's testing the local spring for a love bug dubbed "Romeo" that's reputed to cause sexual mayhem for seven straight days. For the first time in sixty years, Bliss is going "buggy." Romantic songs on the radio. Restaurant breakfast specials for two. The whole town is under some spell. Now Rex and Ariel are testing some steamy waters of their own.

While vacationing in Maine, Professor Peter Shandy confronts a poisonous potpie. Massachusetts horticulturalist Peter Shandy is famous for his rutabagas, but he comes to Maine with a loftier plant in mind. Specifically, he wants to size up the world-renowned lupines of Frances Rondel, a nonagenarian whose legendary flowers are even more beautiful in life than they are in myth. Shandy is bitterly jealous, but finds a major distraction in the dining room of the country inn where he's staying. He may grow wretched lupines, but no gardener can solve a murder like Peter Shandy. The corpse belongs to the late Jasper Flodge, a local loudmouth with a toupee and a sizeable gut. Shoveling down the last bites of a chicken potpie, Flodge clutches his chest and falls dead. Suddenly with more to do than stopping to smell the lupines, Shandy must ask himself: Which Maine cook has the bad taste to flavor chicken with cyanide? Review Quotes.

Publisher: Chalice Press
Pastor, award-winning author, and rising civil rights leader Michael W. Waters Stakes Is High, For Beautiful Black Boys Who Believe in a Better World ruminates on the sacred places and spaces he visited as part of a cross-country trek in 2019-2020 through America’s racial history. From reflections on the river’s edge where Emmett Till’s body was recovered and the Lorraine Motel where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated and to more recent sites of racial violence like the Charleston church massacre and El Paso mass shooting, to the halls of government for Waters’ prayer before the U.S. House of Representatives and his convicting speech before the Dallas City Council to remove Confederate statues, Waters connects our racist past with the current sociological and political climate, offering challenges and hope. From poems and prayers to sermons and eulogies, from rally cries to commentaries, Something in the Water illuminates not just our present struggles, but also the hope and belief in a better day to come. Ultimately, Waters challenges us to consider our role, collectively and individually, in the troubled waters of racism, and what we are willing to do to create something better.

There's a place just south of town that people hide their secrets. The police call it the killing field. Seven bodies have been unearthed there in the past thirteen years. Four of those were in the last few months alone. If you ask me, this whole town is a killing field, riddled with corrupted innocence and decaying youth. Nothing ever changed here. Maybe that's why I was drawn to the new boy who moved in across the street. Momma called him a heathen. He looked like freedom to me. I didn't care what it was that he was running from, as long as he took me along for the ride. But the distance couldn't help me escape my past, and some secrets were best to stay buried. Something in the Water has a mature storyline. Some readers may find the content triggering. Not intended for readers under the age of eighteen.

SOMETHING IN THE WATER a new Thriller series.A scientist and his potentially lethal discovery are missing. Was he kidnapped or complicit in a terrorist plot to murder millions? Book One: "Drowning" follows Charles Burns and a newly formed unit of the Metropolitan Police as they search for a missing scientist who has developed a potent new vaccine and radical mass-delivery method. He and his formula have disappeared completely in what appears to be two coordinated and highly sophisticated operations. Little is known about the scientist, but his work has attracted the attention of more than just the Health Ministry. An unknown terrorist organization, recently active in the London area, may be connected to the disappearance. It's unclear who knows that the formula has a fatal flaw, and could become a dangerous weapon in the wrong hands. The Unit's first mission is to find the scientist and his deadly bioweapon, and stop the terrorists from committing genocide. They must act quickly and quietly, and MCU2 has been put together by Detective Chief Inspector John Wayne to do just that: Act quickly, under the direct authority of The Home Office, and quietly, to avoid a panic spreading through the media. But there is little time before that, or worse, happens.
