Summary

Dr Elizabeth Pimms, enthusiastic archaeologist and reluctant librarian has returned to Egypt.

What is the connection between the Tomb and Tausret, female Pharaoh and last ruler of Egypt's Nineteenth Dynasty? How did the mummies end up scattered across the globe? And is Elizabeth’s investigation related to attacks on her family and friends?
 
Between grave robbers, modern cannibals, misinformed historians and jealous Pharaohs, can Dr Pimms solve her new archaeological mystery?

    What Kind of Parent Am I? -...

    Toxic stress can occur in any home, rich or poor, regardless of age, education, or walk of life. 
     
     
    
    Research has shown that adaptive, supportive parents are the best
    at insulating their children from all but the biggest catastrophes.
    Exposure to “toxic stress” in childhood can cause depression,
    alcoholism, obesity, violent behaviour, heart disease, and even
    cancer in adulthood. Parents who are less sensitive or attentive
    or who regularly misinterpret their children’s needs can let too
    much stress trickle through, or even cause it in the first place,
    which can carry on to the next generation. 
     
    
    
    What Kind of Parent Am I? uses specially created surveys
    to identify problem areas for parents. With recommended
    resources and advice throughout, Dr. Letourneau informs and
    empowers parents to deal directly with their unique risks and
    challenges, helping them become the best parents they can be.

    The drinking establishments of Saxon Chester are a mystery to us. The nineteenth-century historian Thomas Hughes wrote, 'Anglo-Saxons had their eala-hus [ale house], win-hus [wine house] and cumen-hus [inn]'. We don't know where they could have been located, but we do know that weak beer was the staple drink throughout the land because it was safer to drink than water. Chester has many cosy, historical and picturesque public houses, some that have served the public for hundreds of years.Chester pubs, like those throughout the country are going through a time of radical change. Reinvented for a new generation of patrons, many of the pubs have turned into gastro and themed pubs and bars. Within the pages of the Chester Pubs you will find a mixture of typical pubs from down the ages, some from a long way down, and a few of the newer bars.

    The Book of Lies is a complex work of occultism. Deciphering its many layers of hidden meaning requires a little patience and more than a beginner's knowledge of Thelema. For those interested in passing beyond the initiate stage, the reward offered by a deeper understanding of this challenging text is well worth the effort.

    ‘This is The Good Life meets A Year in Provence’. Sue Collins, The Nualas 
    ‘A luminous, funny and profound reading experience.’ Sebastian Barry  
    First, a dream of escaping the city… and then a century-old cottage to match the dream. Moving to a small village in the heart of the countryside was the beginning of a new life for Philip Judge and his Beloved – the beginning of life In Sight of Yellow Mountain.  
    Judge describes the season-by-season charms and frustrations that he, his Beloved, and eventually, his two growing boys experience as they adapt to life in the countryside. 
    There are highs and lows. Wellies and tweeds are bought. Vegetable patches cultivated. Lambs are born, calves die. There is weather: good and bad; health and happiness; illness and sadness. The city slicker fails miserably at Name That Grain! and makes many faux pas along the way, but ultimately, this is the story of one man, and his growing family, experiencing the pleasure that is finding home.
