GUEST BLOG: What Katie Read – The August Round Up (by award-winning author Kate Forsyth)

One of Australia’s favourite novelists Kate Forsyth, author of The Impossible Quest, Bitter Greens, The Wild Girl and now The Beast’s Garden, continues her monthly blog with us, giving her verdict on the books she’s been reading.

August is always one of the busiest times of the year for me and so I gave myself the month off writing and researching, allowing myself to catch up on my reading. It was lovely!

9780091893828The Snow Goose

by Paul Gallico (illustrated by Angela Barrett)

I remember reading this beautiful book when I was a child. It’s the story of a young crippled man, a girl, and a snow goose in 1940s Essex, in the lead-up to World War II. It’s a story of kindness and friendship, of the beauty of nature and our need to protect it, and of the importance of not judging by appearances. It is also a love story. Philip Rhavader is a hunchback, shunned by all, who looks after hurt and injured animals. He makes friends with a young girl named Fritha who brings him a snow goose to tend. As she grows into a beautiful young woman, he falls in love with her but cannot speak of what is in his heart. Then the Second World War breaks out, and Philip sails across to France to help rescue the thousands of soldiers stranded at Dunkirk. As a child, the book made a strong impression on me, but I had not read it in years. When I saw this lovely new edition, with exquisite illustrations by Angela Barrett, I had to buy it for my daughter.

The Chateau on the Lakethe-chateau-on-the-lake

by Charlotte Betts

I love books set in France, and have had a particular fascination with the French Revolution since reading my grandmother’s ancient copies of The Scarlet Pimpernel by the Baroness Orczy when I was a teenager.

I settled down with this novel and a cup of tea, hoping for a great swashbuckling romantic adventure. I was not at all disappointed. The voice of the heroine Madeleine is pitch-perfect – intelligent, highly educated and argumentative, she is the daughter of a French nobleman and an English lady. Fallen on hard times, they have opened a school for rich and well-bred young ladies, where Madeleine teaches. There are secrets in her parents’ life, however, and when they die tragically, Madeleine sets out to discover her hidden heritage. Her search takes her to France, and she witnesses the execution of the French king, Louis XVI, which shakes her understanding of the world to the core.

Trapped in a France gone mad with bloodlust, Madeleine finds herself falling in love …

The Chateau on the Lake is one of the best historical romances I have read for a while, and I was pleased to realise that I had previously read and enjoyed one of Charlotte’s earlier books, The Apothecary’s Daughter … and she has a few other books in her back list. I’ll be hunting them down forthwith!

The Cormoran Strike Series : Book 1

by Robert Galbraith

I really enjoyed The Silkworm when I read it earlier this year, and so I grabbed The Cuckoo’s Calling when I saw it. It is the first in the series of Robert Galbraith’s contemporary crime novels (Robert Galbraith being, of course, the pseudonym of J.K. Rowling). I enjoyed this one even more. It introduced Cormoran Strike, one-legged private detective, and his pretty red-headed sidekick Robin, in a compelling and surprising murder mystery that shines a spotlight on the murky world of modelling. The victim is Lula Landry, a young black model, who died after plummeting from her apartment one bitter winter night. Her adopted brother refuses to believe it is suicide, and hires Cormoran to investigate. I love murder mysteries in which the reader pits their wits against the detective and tries to guess the murderer, and I also love murder mysteries with strong and interesting characters, so this series is right up my alley. I have already pre-ordered the third in the series!

by Angus Donald

This novel of Robin Hood has a tagline ‘Meet the Godfather of Sherwood Forest’, promising lots of gore and violence. The book delivers, with an unflinching look at how the famous Robin of Locksley may have ruled his criminal empire. It has a lot more to it, however. The book sweeps along with an unrelenting pace, filled with sharply drawn chase-and-battle scenes. The narrator is a young man, Alan Dale, who swears allegiance to Robin after he is condemned to death for stealing a pie. The historical setting is fabulously well done, and the characters all complex and well-drawn. I can really recommend it for anyone who loves a gripping, fast-paced historical thriller.

713C2HeV6dLChildren of War

by Martin Walker

I’ve really been enjoying this series of contemporary murder mysteries set in the Dordogne in the south-west of France. The first few books were gentle, warm and character-driven with lots of descriptions of Bruno cooking delicious meals and looking for truffles in the forest with his dog. The later books have become more like hard-edged thrillers, with a bit of sex and a lot of political intrigue thrown in. I am still enjoying them, but not as much. Bruno was such a lovable character to begin with, but now he’s bed-hopping a little too much for my taste. I’d like less torture and more romance and feasting. Ah, well! Still a very enjoyable read.

The Girl Who Came Home81H61VA4rqL

by Hazel Gaynor

This a bittersweet, delicate novel which moves between Chicago, 1982, and Ireland, 1912. A young American woman Grace discovers that her grandmother Maggie is a survivor of the Titanic, and asks her to tell her story. Maggie was one of fourteen Irish emigrants to leave a single village to sail on the Titanic. They all have hopes and fears for the new life they are sailing towards, and many are leaving behind friends and loved ones. Hazel Gaynor deftly moves back and forth between the two narrative threads, showing how grief and loss can cast its shadow over lives, and how important it is to seize love when you find it.

9780007267002 (1)Kaspar: Prince of Cats

by Michael Morpurgo, Michael Foreman (Illustrator)

This is my daughter’s favourite book, and she returns to it again and again. I was curious to know why, so I wrested it from her and sat down to read. It really is a delightful book, gorgeously illustrated by Michael Foreman. It tells the story of Johnny Trott, a bellboy at the Savoy, who makes friends with a cat named Kaspar.

‘From his whiskers to his paws he was black all over, jet black and sleek and shiny and beautiful. He knew he was beautiful too. He moved like silk, his head held high, his tail swishing as he went.’

Kaspar belongs to a Russian countess who befriends Johnny, and introduces him to a world of beauty and art and music. When the countess tragically dies, Johnny must keep Kaspar safe from the horrible head housekeeper, called ‘Skullface’ by the hotel staff. He is helped by the daughter of a rich American who is staying at the Savoy. They have all sorts of adventures – including escaping the sinking of the Titanic – before finding happiness and safety in America. I asked my daughter why she loves it so much, and she said, ‘because it’s about a cat, and a boy and a girl who save it, and because it makes you sad one minute, then happy the next.’ Wonderful!

The Spring Bridethe-spring-bride

by Anne Gracie

Anne Gracie is my favourite living romance author. Her Regency love stories are a perfect blend of romance, humour and pathos, and I never fail to finish with a lump in my throat. The Spring Bride is the third in a series following the romantic entanglements of four young women struggling to make their way in the world. The series began with The Autumn Bride, and continued with The Winter Bride – I would definitely start at the beginning. This one involves a rescued mutt, a gentleman-turned spy, a murder mystery, and a girl who fears to fall in love. Can’t wait for the next in the series!

91S2AFtIYnLSnow in Summer

by Jane Yolen

Jane Yolen is a wonderful American children’s author known for her interest in fairy tales and folklore. I have read and enjoyed many of her books, in particular The Devil’s Arithmetic and Briar Rose. Snow in Summer is a reworking of the Snow White fairy tale, set in the hillbilly mountains of West Virginia during the Great Depression. The story is both familiar and unfamiliar, as the best fairy tale retellings are. It is not her finest work, but a must-read for anyone interested in the imaginative use of fairy tales.

Rodin’s Loverrodin-s-lover

by Heather Webb

I remember watching the movie ‘Camille Claudel’, starring Isabelle Adjani and Gerard Depardieu in the late 1980s, and being stirred by the intensely romantic yet tragic story of this young sculptor as she struggled to make her way as a woman and a creative artist in the male-dominated world of the late 19th century.

Heather Webb has now brought Camille Claudel to life on the page, in this delicate and haunting novel told from her point of view. We see her as a strong-willed and determined young woman, stealing clay from a garden late at night so she can use it for her sculptures. Then we see Camille’s meeting with Auguste Rodin, the controversial sculptor, and the beginning of their tumultuous affair. The tension between Love and Art torments Camille. She breaks off their relationship as her work is dismissed as being copies of his, even as she longs for him. Her emotional and psychological breakdown is deftly and sensitively handled, and the ending brought tears to my eyes. A beautiful novel for anyone who (like me) loves books inspired by real-life artists.

9781845951542-1-edition.default.original-1The Mystery of Princess Louise: Queen Victoria’s Rebellious Daughter

by Lucinda Hawksley

In recent months, I’ve been reading a lot of non-fiction books written by the British biographer Lucinda Hawksley, and enjoyed them all. So I was drawn to read this biography of one of Queen Victoria’s daughters as much by the author as by the promise of the blurb: ‘packed with intrigues, scandals and secrets, (this is) a vivid portrait of a royal desperate to escape her inheritance.’

I was not disappointed. Lucinda Hawksley has a knack for bringing stories alive on the page, and Princess Louise is a wonderful character. Outspoken, creative, and sensual, she smoked cigarettes, rode bicycles, and refused to wear a crinoline. It is rumoured she had an illegitimate baby, smuggled out of the palace by the queen’s doctor, and one of her lovers’ may have died in her arms. It is impossible to know the truth because – nearly 70 years after her death – her archives are stoutly locked away and no-one is permitted to read them. A fascinating mystery, indeed.

The Beast’s Garden

by Kate Forsyth

the-beast-s-gardenA retelling of The Beauty and The Beast set in Nazi Germany

The Grimm Brothers published a beautiful version of the Beauty & the Beast tale called ‘The Singing, Springing Lark’ in 1819. It combines the well-known story of a daughter who marries a beast in order to save her father with another key fairy tale motif, the search for the lost bridegroom. In ‘The Singing, Springing Lark,’ the daughter grows to love her beast but unwittingly betrays him and he is turned into a dove. She follows the trail of blood and white feathers he leaves behind him for seven years, and, when she loses the trail, seeks help from the sun, the moon, and the four winds. Eventually she battles an evil enchantress and saves her husband, breaking the enchantment and turning him back into a man.

Kate Forsyth retells this German fairy tale as an historical novel set in Germany during the Nazi regime. A young woman marries a more…

The Booktopia Book Guru asks Sami Sparrow Ten Terrifying Questions


The Booktopia Book Guru Asks

Sami Sparrow,

the creator of

Sami Sparrow’s Emporium of Colour and Delight,

Ten Terrifying Questions


Sparrow, Sami - Sami Sparrow's Emporium of Colour and Delight1. To begin with why don’t you tell us a little bit about yourself – where were you born? Raised? Schooled?

I was born in Alexandra, Victoria. Raised in the beautiful village of Exeter in the Southern Highlands of NSW. Primary School at Exeter, High School at Moss Vale High. Studies were done at TAFE in Moss Vale.

2. What did you want to be when you were twelve, eighteen and thirty? And why?

I think I was like most kids at twelve I wanted to do something with animals, either as a zoologist or a vet.
At eighteen I wanted to be a graphic designer.
I’m not thirty yet, however at my current age I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up!

3. What strongly held belief did you have at eighteen that you do not have now?

I believed very strongly that I never wanted to live in Sydney or any other city! I was a country girl who hated the idea of not having open space around me. While I still feel strongly about being a country girl and I still have a real love for open space, I must admit though, I now love living in Sydney!

4. What were three big events – in the family circle or on the world stage or in your reading life, for example – you can now say, had a great effect on you and influenced you in your career path?

I was fortunate enough to have a mum who pushed me to further my studies after finishing high school. While at the time I was extremely upset as I wanted a gap year, I’m so very grateful that I now have my fine and visual arts training.

I moved back to the country after living in the city for a number of years, due to a break up with a boyfriend. I needed to restart my life and returning to my childhood home was the perfect place to start. I had time to really find myself and realise who I was and what I wanted from life. That was definitely a phoenix-rising-from-the-ashes moment for me.

Travelling to Europe. For anyone who has grown up in Australia travelling out of the country is a huge life-changing event. You’ll never return the same person.

5. Considering the innumerable electronic media avenues open to you – blogs, online newspapers, TV, radio, etc – why have you chosen to write a book? Aren’t they obsolete?

I love physical books, the feeling, and the smell. I feel that people spend so much time looking at computer screens and on their phones that they enjoy the time out and feeling of escapism that you get from reading a good book. However the true escapism for adults is now the relaxation that comes from a secret thrill of colouring-in. It was cool when you were a child so why not as an adult too!?!


Sami Sparrow Instagram: @samisparrow020


6. Please tell us about your latest book…

My book is a colouring-in book for adults. It’s a collaboration between my heart, mind and soul, and a book with drive and purpose. I thrive on creating art, and I particularly love combining my designs with phrases, sayings and affirmations that inspire or engage on a higher level. The designs are all organic and free flowing, a natural reaction to the words placed within the art. I can only hope they bring happiness to those who colour each one in.

7. If your work could change one thing in this world – what would it be?

Ideally if I had the money I would donate as many copies of my work to nursing homes, hospitals and charities, especially ones that support people with depression. I’d like to think my book has an empowering and positive message and could change the world by putting a smile on the faces of people who need it most.

8. Whom do you most admire and why?

People who dare to be themselves and not conform to the standards that society sets. I find nothing more beautiful than someone staying true to themselves, owning their identity, stretching the social norm and being brave enough to empower themselves to be exactly who they want to be.

9. Many people set themselves very ambitious goals. What are yours?

I’d love to exhibit my art in galleries. I’d also love to travel a lot more and experience more cultures. Maybe release a few more books also!

10. What advice do you give aspiring writers?

Never let anything hold you back. Work hard and keep trying. Get involved with writing groups and meet as many people in the industry as you can. It all adds into your experience that can help your book in the future.

Thank you for playing.

Mark wasn’t sure the beautiful and spirited Carly had what it took to be a reporter, but he was sure that he wanted her. And Mark never denied himself what he wanted.

BOOK REVIEW: When a Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa Dare (Reviewed by Kat Mayo)

‘…he was…an impoverished, unloved orphan with a passion for books. Her every feminine impulse jumped into attention.’

An introvert, Maddie Gracechurch invented a fiancé – conveniently abroad, fighting in the war – to avoid ballrooms and the pressure of having to find a suitable match. But when said fiancé turns up at her doorstep years later, marries her without so much as kiss (okay, one kiss), Maddie knows she’s in Very Big Trouble.

Logan Mackenzie needs a place for his men, coming home from the war. Marriage to Maddie is the quickest and surest way to ensure that they have a home. But as it becomes increasingly clear that there’s more to their marriage than convenience, how can they be sure that what they have is love and not just a way to avoid their deepest fears?

I might be biased because I’m an unashamed Tessa Dare fan girl, but when I learned that Tessa is releasing a Scottish romance (they seem to be making a resurgence!), I knew I had to feature it in the Romance Buzz. Her writing is always rich with nuance. We don’t get many truly introverted heroines in romance, and Maddie is charming and so very worthy of a happy ending!

The Castles Ever After Series : Book 3

On the cusp of her first London season, Miss Madeline Gracechurch was shyly pretty and talented with a drawing pencil, but hopelessly awkward with gentlemen. She was certain to be a dismal failure on the London marriage mart. So Maddie did what generations of shy, awkward young ladies have done: she invented a sweetheart.

A Scottish sweetheart. One who was handsome and honorable and devoted to her, but conveniently never around. Maddie poured her heart into writing the imaginary Captain MacKenzie letter after letter … and by pretending to be devastated when he was (not really) killed in battle, she managed to avoid the pressures of London society entirely.

Until years later, when more…
