THERE'S nothing like curling up with a cup of tea, a box of chocolates and a good book — especially on a cool autumn day.
Dymocks may not be able to help with the cuppa and choccies, but it can help out with a selection of books recommended to make your mother's special day on May 11.
Following are some of the books on Dymocks' Mother's Day reading list.
■ Chestnut Street by Maeve Binchy
Just round the corner from St Jarlath's Crescent is Chestnut Street.
Here, the lives of the residents are revealed in Maeve Binchy's collection of stories:
Bucket Maquire, the window cleaner, who must do more than he bargained for to protect his son.
Nessa Byrne, whose aunt comes to visit from America for six weeks every summer and turns the house — and Nessa's world — upside down.
Lilian, the generous girl with a big heart, and the fiance not everyone approves of.
And Melly, whose gossip about the neighbours leads to trouble in the form of the fortune teller, "Madame Magic".
■ The Tea Chest by Josephine Moon
Kate Fullerton is a talented tea designer and now the co-owner of The Tea Chest.
She could never have imagined that she'd be flying from Brisbane to London, risking her young family's future, to save the business she loves from the woman who wants to shut it down.
Meanwhile, Leila Morton has just lost her job; and if Elizabeth Clancy had known today was the day she would appear on the nightly news, she might at least have put on some clothes. Both need to move on.
