New – Library ‘Books of the Week’
Tuesday 8 November 2016
Queenswood’s librarian, Mrs Jayne Truran, has launched a new ‘Books of the Week’ programme. Each week, two books will be featured – one aimed specifically at students, and one at a general adult readership. If you have suggestions for future books of the week, she would love to hear from you: email [email protected].

‘In desperation Alpha leaves his home in Abidjan. The odds are stacked against him- the people traffickers in the desert, the refugee camps, the overcrowded boats. But Alpha stays the course. Destination Paris, Gare de Nord.’
It’s scary to think this is really happening in our world! An amazing graphic novel (Mrs Truran)
THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS
by M L Stedman
‘A boat washes up on the shore of a remote lighthouse keeper’s island. It holds a dead man and a crying baby. The only two islanders, Tom and his wife Izzy, are about to make a devastating decision.
They break the rules and follow their hearts.
What happens next will break yours.’
A mesmerizing and heart-breaking read full of twists and turns (Mrs Truran)
