"Can you imagine being lost and not finding your way home again? Saroo Brierley became lost on a train in India at the age of five. Not knowing the name of his family or where he was from, he survived for weeks on the streets of Kolkata, before being taken into an orphanage and adopted by a family in Australia. Despite being happy in his new home, Saroo always wondered about his origins. He spent hours staring at the map of India on his bedroom wall. He pored over satellite images on Google Earth seeking out landmarks he recognised. And one day, after years of searching, he miraculously found what he was looking for. Then he set off on a journey back to India to see if he could find his mother. This inspirational true story of survival and triumph against incredible odds is now a major motion picture starring Dev Patel, David Wenham and Nicole Kidman."

FACING THE LION is the autobiographical account of a young girl’s faith and courage. In the years immediately preceding World War II, Simone Arnord is a young girl who delights in life – her doting parents, her loving aunts and uncles, and her grandparents at their mountain farm in the Alsace-Lorraine region of France. As Simone grows into her preteen years, her parents turn from the Catholic Church and become devout Jehovah’s Witnesses. Simone, too, embraces the faith. The Nazi party (the “Lion”) takes over Alsace-Lorraine, and Simone’s schools become Nazi propaganda machines. Simone refuses to accept the Nazi party as being above God. Her simple acts of defiance lead her to be persecuted by the school staff and local officials, and ignored by friends. With her father already taken away to a German concentration camp, Simone is wrested away from her mother and sent to a reform school to be “reeducated”. There, Simone learns that her mother has also been put in a camp. Simone remains in the harsh reform school until the end of the war. She emerges feeling detached from life, but the faith that sustains her through her ordeals helps her rebuild her world. Facing the lion provides an interesting and detailed view of ordinary country and town life in the pre- war years and during Hitler’s regime. This inspiring story of a young girl standing up for her beliefs in the face of society’s overwhelming pressure to conform is a potent reminder of the power of remaining true to one’s beliefs. This book is also available in other languages: German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, and many more.

Aesop, a Greek slave who lived about 550 BC, told a version of this fable. The story was later recited in ancient Rome, where runaway slaves and criminals were often forced to fight wild animals in the arena. The fable has a satisfying moral: 'A kindness is often repaid.' This, as well as its strong drama, has made it a popular story for many centuries. Set in North Africa and Rome about 140 BC.

An authoritative and lively account of the long and controversial history of the British in India, from the foundation of the East India Company in 1600; to Ghandi's innovative leadership of the increasingly militant Indian Nationalist movement: and finally to Lord Mountbatten's 'swift surgeryof partition', leaving behind the Independent states of India and Pakistan.Against this epic backdrop, Judd explores the consequences of British control for both Indians and the British in India.What was the effect on their daily lives, and on the lives they were effectively controlling? Were the British intent on development or exploitation? Were they a 'civilizing'force? Easy answers are avoided, and difficult questions provoked in this fascinating book.
