- Paperback - Poolbeg
Maria Conti has a full and busy life in 1960's Manchester. Having lost her mother at a young age, she has a close and loving relationship with her father, Leo who owns an Italian restaurant, Leonardo's. Finding first romance with Paul Spencer seems like the icing on the cake. Secretly, however, she worries over Leo's drinking and gambling binges. Then he buys a racehorse she knows he cannot afford. Maria has no one to advise her as Leo's family are in Italy and her mother's family in Ireland rejected her when she married a foreigner. Having carefully guarded her father from female attention, Maria's attitude alters when elegant Diana Freeman comes into their lives. She hopes that Diana's presence may distance Leo from his addictions.
Masters Of Men: Ken Venturi, Rory McIlroy And One Epic Golf Journey
- Hardback - Arena Sport
This is the story of one journey taken, over half a century apart, by two outstanding golfers. But, this is more than a golf book. It's the story of two young men, and the people who filled their lives - the mentor who dominated Ken Venturi, the agent who loomed too large over Rory McIlroy, and the two young girls who became their first loves and lost their men as they became champions. It pits the incredible struggles and victories of perhaps the single most naturally talented golfer from the 1950s and '60s against the game's most naturally talented golfer of today. It puts them on the same tee boxes, on the same greens, on the same day.

The Medieval Kirk, Cemetery And Hospice At Kirk Ness, North Berwick: The Scottish Seabird Centre Excavations 1999-2006
- HR - Oxbow Books
Kirk Ness has long been considered likely to be an early Christian centre, whose dedication to St Andrew may perhaps be linked with the 8th century translation of the relics of St Andrew's to Fife. Such early dating was confirmed by a new sequence of radiocarbon dates from excavations carried out in 1999-2006. This title explores the excavations and what was found at the Scottish Seabird Centre from 1999 until 2006.
