Casting Off: 1. Ending a knitted work. 2. Releasing lines holding a boat to its mooring. 3. Letting go... On a tiny island off the west coast of Ireland, the fishermen's handmade sweaters tell a story. Each is unique-feelings stitched into rows, memories into patterns. It is here that Rebecca Moray comes to research a book on Irish knitting. With her daughter, Rowan, accompanying her, she hopes to lose herself in the history of the island and forget her own painful past. Soon, the townsfolk's warm embrace wraps Rebecca and Rowan in a world of friendship, laughter, and love. And it is here that young Rowan befriends Sean Morahan, a cantankerous old fisherman, despite his attempts to scare her off. As Rebecca watches her daughter interact with Morahan, she recognizes in his eyes a look that speaks of a dark knowledge not unlike her own. And when current storms threaten to resurrect old ones, Morahan and Rebecca find themselves on a collision course-with Rowan caught between them-each buffeted by waves of regret and recrimination. Only by walking headfirst into the winds will they find the faith to forgive without forgetting...and reach the shore.

As a journalist for the Independent, Emma Bamford is swept along with the London rat race, lost amongst the egos of Fleet Street. Surrounded by budget cuts and bullies, the thrill of a breaking news story is no longer enough. And at 31, still struggling to get to a fourth date and surrounded by friends settling down to married life and babies, Emma decides to grasp her life by the roots and reclaim her freedom...by running away to sea and joining a complete stranger (and his cat) on a yacht in Borneo. Reflective yet humorous and self-deprecating, we share Emma's excitement and fear at leaving a good job for an unknown adventure, and join her as she travels to some of the most exotic places in the world and starts to realise what really matters in life. She discovers the supreme awkwardness of sharing a tiny space with total strangers, the unimaginable beauty of paradise islands and secret jungle rivers, glimpses lost tribes, works all hours for demanding superyacht owners, and has a terrifyingly near miss with pirates. Fending off romantic propositions from a Moldovan pig farmer and a Sri Lanken village chief amongst others, Emma finds adventure and happiness in the most unlikely places. From planning each day meticulously to learning to let go and leave things to chance, Emma's story shows that it is possible to break free and find happiness – and love – on your own terms.

The Second World War has finally ended and so begins a new era of freedom and opportunity for the Cazalet family. Elizabeth Jane Howard's magnificent Cazalet Chronicles continues with Casting Off, the fourth novel in the saga. The Cazalet cousins are now in their twenties, trying to piece together their lives in the aftermath of the war. Louise is faced with her father's new mistress and her mother's grief at his betrayal, while suffering in a loveless marriage of her own. Clary is struggling to understand why her beloved father chose to stay in France long after it was safe to return to Britain, and both she and Polly are madly in love with much older men. Polly, Clary and Louise must face the truth about the adult world, while their fathers – Rupert, Hugh and Edward – must make choices that will decide their own, and the family's, future. With cover artwork exclusively designed by artist Luke Edward Hall, this is the heartbreaking and heartwarming fourth instalment of Elizabeth Jane Howard's bestselling series. It is followed by All Change, the fifth and final book in the series. 'Charming, poignant and quite irresistible . . . to be cherished and shared' – The Times

A hilarious, poignant tale of friendship, loyalty and sacrifice – and how you're never too old to try something new. When the residents of a Highland care home discover that the new owners are about to substantially put up the fees, they know that dramatic action is called for. But what can a group of senior citizens possibly do against a big organisation? For Dorothy, the situation is serious. If she can’t raise money she’ll have to leave all her friends, like dear Miss Ross. In protest, the residents barricade themselves into the lounge. However, their rebellion fails, so worldly-wise Joan suggests a most unusual way to cover the rise – a very naughty chat line for men who want to talk to older women ‘in a particular way’! As their lives take a series of unexpected turns, things get increasingly out of control... Calendar Girls meets The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Casting Off will delight and amuse fans of Jonas Jonasson's The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared and Alan Bennet's The Lady in the Van. What readers have been saying about Casting Off: "This book has to be my favourite comedy novel of the year... the whole novel is just so very uplifting and leaves you with a feel good factor." BOOKS FROM DUSK TO DAWN "A cheeky and hilarious read... A book of pure delight and I'm sure it will life the hardest of hearts." TRACY SHEPHARD, POSTCARD REVIEWS "This uplifting, mischievous and brilliantly written tale is one that has left a huge impression on me, for ALL the right reasons." LITTLE BOOKNESS LANE "Funny, achingly sad and raunchy... your view of assisted living will never be the same! ... My soggy tissue and gentle sigh as I reached the final sentence is my version of a five-star review." SCREENWIPER "This is a story which will have you laughing out loud one moment and in need of a tissue the next. It is a great read." "Funny and Sweet." "I could not put it down." "The characters were fantastic, funny and utterly believable. A great read for any age." "Friendship, heartache, love and life... you'll find it here." "I was very sad to finish this book. I'd give it more than 5* if I could." "You will not be disappointed. A book that made me laugh and cry at the same time. A must read!!"
