Heartlines

By Susannah McFarlane and Robin Leuba:

LIKE so many young girls in the 60s, Robin gave her baby up for adoption. The laws at the time ensured there could be no contact between mother and child. Nearly 50 years later, mother and daughter meet. A reminder to us all of a different and difficult past time (Penguin Random House – $34.99).

Not Just Jam

By Matthew Evans:

WITH winter approaching there has never been a better time to head to the kitchen and get something bubbling on the stove. Jam preferably. Or pickles and preserves. The reward of having your own stock is amazing (Murdoch - $35).
