Pure by Andrew Miller

Deep in the heart of Paris, its oldest cemetery is, by 1785, overflowing, tainting the very breath of those who live nearby. Into their midst comes Jean-Baptiste Baratte, a young engineer charged by the king with demolishing it. But before long, he begins to suspect that the destruction of the cemetery might be a prelude to his own.

Tiny Sunbirds Far Away by Christie Watson

Set in the Niger Delta, ‘Tiny Sunbirds Far Away’ explores the world of 12-year-old Blessing and her family. Part comic, part tragic, it shows that some families can survive almost anything.
