When the Templeton family takes up residence in an imposing and long-empty manor in the countryside of Victoria, Australia, the locals begin to buzz with gossip. The seven Templetons moved from England and seem unusual, peculiar even—especially when they begin to lead tours through the stately home while dressed in period costume. No one is more intrigued by the family than their neighbors, single mother Nina Donovan and her son, Tom. Though they try to keep their distance from the often shocking Templeton dramas, Nina and Tom find their lives unexpectedly entwined with this enigmatic family, much to the delight of Gracie, the youngest Templeton daughter. Then one day, a tragedy tears them all apart. In the grand estate, the stage is set for years of betrayal and heartbreak, love and affection, to be revealed—and, perhaps, resolved—as the Templetons try to make amends. At Home with the Templetons is Monica McInerney’s best book yet—a captivating and moving story that spans two decades, illuminating the perils and pleasures of love, friendship, and family. BONUS: This edition contains excerpts from Monica McInerney's Lola's Secret, The Faraday Girls, Family Baggage, The Alphabet Sisters, Greetings from Somewhere Else, and Upside Down Inside Out.

An English comic novelist and short story writer, P. G. Wodehouse is best known as the creator of the young bachelor Bertie Wooster and his effortlessly superior manservant, Jeeves. Wodehouse penned over 90 books and secured a devoted readership across the world. His first success came as a writer of public school stories, based on his own childhood experiences, most notably introducing the strikingly original character, Psmith. These were followed by light romances, but in 1913, with the publication of the first Blandings Castle novel, ‘Something New’, he turned to farce, which became his preferred genre of work. Wodehouse is celebrated for his scholarly command of the English sentence, blended with vivid, far-fetched imagery and the uproarious slang of the late Edwardian era. His novels feature highly complicated plots and hilarious situations, revealing the hand of a master humorist. This comprehensive eBook offers the most complete edition possible of P. G. Wodehouse, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1) * Beautifully illustrated with images relating to Wodehouse’s life and works * Concise introductions to the major works * All 29 novels in the US public domain, with individual contents tables * Features rare novels appearing for the first time in digital publishing, including ‘Sam the Sudden’ — one of the author’s personal favourites * Both versions of the first Blandings Castle novel: ‘Something New’ and ‘Something Fresh’ * Images of how the books were first published, giving your eReader a taste of the original texts * Excellent formatting of the texts * Rare uncollected short stories available in no other eBook * Special chronological and alphabetical contents tables for the short stories * Easily locate the stories you want to read * Features a selection of Wodehouse’s musical dramas * Includes Wodehouse’s non-fiction book ‘Louder and Funnier’, with numerous essays and articles * Ordering of texts into chronological order and genres Please visit www.delphiclassics.com to browse through our range of exciting titles CONTENTS: The Novels The Pothunters (1902) A Prefect’s Uncle (1903) The Gold Bat (1904) William Tell Told Again (1904) The Head of Kay’s (1905) Love among the Chickens (1906) The White Feather (1907) Not George Washington (1907) The Swoop!
