Here at QBD Books, we are thrilled to announce our October Books of the Month! We are featuring “The Seven Skins of Esther Wilding” by Holly Ringland, “The Ninth Life of a Diamond Miner” by Grace Tame and “The Dangerous Business of Being Trilby Moffat” by Kate Temple
The Seven Skins of Esther Wilding by Holly Ringland
The last time Aura Wilding was seen, she was walking along the shore towards the sea. In the wake of her disappearance, her family – especially her sister Esther – now struggle to live with their loss. To seek the truth about her sister’s death, Esther reluctantly travels from Tasmania to Copenhagen, and then to the Faroe Islands. On her journey, she is guided by the stories Aura left behind… and the cryptic verses Aura had secretly tattooed on her body.
The Ninth Life of a Diamond Miner by Grace Tame
Last year, Grace stepped into the public eye and was the catalyst for a tidal wave of conversation and action. “The Ninth Life of a Diamond Miner” is Grace’s story, in Grace’s words, on Grace’s terms. Like Grace, it is sharply intelligent, deeply felt, and often blisteringly funny. And, as with all her work, it offers a constructive and optimistic vision for a better future for all of us.
The Dangerous Business of Being Trilby Moffat by Kate Temple
In this story, a mystery illness is making people speak ancient languages and bake old-fashioned cakes. It is because of this strange illness that Trilby Moffat and her mother find themselves sitting on a train. Behind them are a number of things they will never see again, including a comfortable home, Trilby’s school, a regular job and all the people they consider friends. Ahead of them is a surprise relative, an unusual inheritance, an opportunity that will never be repeated and a man in a top hat who will try to kill Trilby… more than once.
