The best-ever children's novel from the brilliant Roddy Doyle is a funny, sad story about four generations of a family. 12 year old Mary O'Hara's beloved, joke-cracking grandmother is near the end of her life. Letting go is hard - until a mysterious young woman appears at Mary's door. She is the ghost of Granny's long-dead mammy and her mission is to help her dying daughter say goodbye to the ones she loves. But first she needs someone to drive them all to the old family farm for a visit to the past.

Can a girl from Queens find happily ever after with an honest-to-goodness Greek god? When Angie's big fat Greek wedding goes bust, her grandmother sends her on a trip to Greece with the instruction to set sail on a mysterious fishing boat. Waiting for her at the dock is Milos, who's charming and handsome and confesses he&'s been crushing on her for years, even though he's never met her. He also tells her he's a descendant of the original Gods of Olympus, who are plotting their return to power. Before she can say "Oh my God," Angie is flying a winged horse alongside Milos and finding love in his arms. But there's one little hitch: Milos's elders are forcing him to marry the malevolent goddess Electra. If Angie is to have any hope of hanging onto Milos, she'll have to go toe-to-toe with Zeus, whose recipe for world domination doesn't call for a sassy girl from the outer boroughs. Praise: "This is a great story with mystery and a whole lot of fun. It's also highly informative and entertaining if you're looking for your very own Greek God. (Aren't we all?) 5-Stars!"—Suspense Magazine

A wooden box holds the buttons of three generations of women in Lynn Knight’s family – each one with its own tale to tell... Tracing the story of women at home and in work, from the jet buttons of Victorian mourning, to the short skirts of the 1960s, taking in suffragettes, bachelor girls, little dressmakers, Biba and the hankering for vintage, The Button Box lifts the lid on women’s lives and their clothes with elegance and wit.
