Worst Fears by Fay Weldon
Bolinda audio

A classic tale of how a perfectly knitted life can unravel in the space of days. Alexandra Ludd is an actress playing Nora in Ibsen’s A Doll’s House. In the eyes of the world she has everything a woman could want: husband, home, child, income, good looks, good friends, the plaudits of the crowd and the affection of neighbours. But Alexandra inspires envy as well as love: she was unwise to forget it, she was complacent, perhaps a little vain – and all fate has to do to bring her down is to snip a single strand ... Worst Fears is the story of how bereavement can turn love hollow and truth can destroy a past. It is a headlong, headstrong tale of anger and forgiveness, of worst fears realised but, in the end, best wishes granted.

The School of Restoration by Alice Achan and Philippa Tyndale
Bolinda audio

Alice Achan was just 13 when the Lord’s Resistance Army first terrorised her village in northern Uganda in 1987. She spent five years on the run from the brutal LRA and then cared for her young nieces after their mother died of AIDS, losing them one by one to the disease. Their deaths plunged her into depression, which only began to lift after she took in an unexpected guest: a pregnant teenage girl, kidnapped and assaulted by the LRA, who had escaped captivity with her toddler. Spurred on by her young friend’s plight, Alice began to house and nurture survivors of the sexual violence that was a trademark of the LRA’s 20-year campaign. Out of this rose the Pader Girls Academy, which Alice saw as a ‘School of Restoration’. It has helped hundreds of girls, many left with babies and HIV as a result of their enslavement. Written in Alice’s powerful yet understated voice, The School of Restoration is a compelling story of hope, forgiveness, redemption and the human capacity to survive and even thrive against the backdrop of war and chaos.

I Love the Bones of You: My Father And The Making Of Me by Christopher Eccleston
Bolinda audio

Be it as Nicky Hutchinson in Our Friends in the North, Maurice in The A Word, or his reinvention of Doctor Who, one man, in life and death, has accompanied Christopher Eccleston every step of the way – his father Ronnie. In I Love the Bones of You, Eccleston unveils a vivid portrait of a relationship that has shaped his entire career trajectory, mirroring and defining his own highs and lows, from stage and screen triumph to breakdown, anorexia and self-doubt. The actor reveals how his background in Salford shaped his desire to make drama forever entwined with the marginalised, the oppressed and the outsider. Movingly, and in scenes sadly familiar to increasing numbers, Eccleston also describes how the tightening grip of dementia slowly blinded his father to his existence, forging a new and final chapter in their connection, as ‘Ronnie Ecc’ still walks alongside him today. Told with trademark honesty and openness, I Love the Bones of You is a celebration of those on whom the spotlight so rarely shines, as told by a man who found his voice in its glare. This is a love letter to one man and a paean to many. Can be purchased from Bolinda.com, Audible.com or borrowed from the library using our BorrowBox app
