RRP $14.99

Taming The Brooding Cattleman - Marion Lennox

Alexandra Patterson swaps city chic for the dusty outback when she arrives at Werrara Stud. As the new vet, she may be more used to pampered puppies than prized stallions, but Alex is determined to show that she can cut it...

Brooding rancher Jack Connor is in for a shock - the women in his life have only ever caused him pain and anguish...and Alexandra was supposed to be Alexander. Instead, the person before him is a petite blonde with a pink suitcase and is distractingly, infuriatingly attractive!

How To Trap A Parent - Joan Kilby

Jane Linden's high-school sweetheart Cole Roberts had given her a child and offered her the security of small-town life when all she had wanted were the bright lights and a movie career.

Now the town's charismatic real estate agent is a single parent himself. Not only that, it's clear Cole wants to make up for lost time with his daughter - whether Jane likes it or not. The young love they remember seems to have burned itself out. Until their kids find a way to turn back the clock.


Multilingualism In The Australian Suburbs

RRP $354.99

This book introduces a framework for examining bilingual identity and presents the cases of seven individual children from a study of young students' bilingual identities in an Australian primary school. The new Bilingual Identity Negotiation Framework brings together three elements that influence bilingual identity development - sociocultural connection, investment and interaction. The cases comprise individual stories about seven young, bilingual students and are complemented by some more general investigations of bilingual identity from a whole class of students at the school. The framework is explained and supported using the students' stories and offers readers a new concept for examining and thinking about bilingual identity. This book builds upon past and current theories of identity and bilingualism and expands on these to identify three interlinking elements within bilingual identity. The book highlights the need for greater dialogue between different sectors of research and education relating to languages and bilingualism. It adds to the increasing call for collaborative work from the different fields interested in language learning and teaching such as TESOL, bilingualism, and language education. Through the development of the framework and the students' stories in this study, this book shows how multilingual children in one school in Australia developed their identities in association with their home and school languages. This provides readers with a model for examining bilingual identity in their own contexts, or a theoretical construct to consider in their thinking on bilingualism, language and identity.
