New & Upcoming Releases
 
Sarah-Lou is looking forward to...

Agent Sonya :
Lover, Mother, Soldier, Spy

by Ben MacIntyre
(Hardcover £25)
I absolutely loved The Spy & The Traitor so I've been really looking forward to seeing what MacIntyre does next. At last, Agent Sonya is imminent! The incredible account of the greatest female spy in history, from one of Britain's most acclaimed historians, her story has never been told - until now. 

Pre-Order before 17/09/20 for £5 off.

I've just finished...

Untamed :
Stop pleasing, start living

by Glennon Doyle
(paperback £14.99)

This was a surprise top seller here in the shop as soon as we reopened our doors in July so I thought I'd give it a bash. "For many years, Glennon Doyle denied her discontent" - a sentiment shared by many post lockdown - Untamed shows us how to be brave. And, as Glennon insists, 'The braver we are, the luckier we get.'

 
Kelsey's excited to start...

The Pull of the Stars
by Emma Donoghue
(Hardcover £16.99)

Set during the 1918 Spanish Influenza epidemic, three women work together in an underfunded hospital struggling to deal with a new unknown disease.

This very relevant premise combined with my deep love for historical fiction and knowing Emma Donoghue (author of Room) is a knock out writer means I cannot wait to read this book!

Alice is Excited about...

Summerwater
by Sarah Moss
(Hardback £14.99)

Sarah Moss’ last novel Ghost Wall became a bit of a sensation in our wee bookshop, so her latest work has been eagerly awaited by us all. Set in a lochside holiday park in the Highlands, the park's inhabitants are plagued by a stifling, relentless rain, that becomes an increasingly unnerving presence. Summerwater promises to be as full of tension and tenderness as her previous fiction. I can’t wait to dive into it.
 
Intimations: Six Essays
by Zadie Smith
(Paperback £5.99)

After the chaos of the last few months I was delighted to see that one of the greatest writers of our times had released a slim volume of six short essays, all written during lockdown. Smith’s work is clear-sighted and astute but also imbued with tenderness –  I’ll be picking this up whenever the world seems too mad to understand.

Highland Bookshop Reviews
 
The Mercies
by Kiran Millwood Hardgrave

In Blood Beneath Ben Nevis Mark Bridgeman has created a fascinating collection of tales, events and folklore from around Lochaber, all focused around the uncanny, the disturbing, and the downright odd.

An intense, vivid and engaging story. Especially good if you enjoyed The Familiars.

The Blood Beneath Ben Nevis 
By Mark Bridgeman

In Blood Beneath Ben Nevis Mark Bridgeman has created a fascinating collection of tales, events and folklore from around Lochaber, all focused around the uncanny, the disturbing, and the downright odd.

Despite the mysterious overtones ... The landscape and the places are recognisable, as are the characters, with many of the familiar names living on in Lochaber today.
