Word of Mouth TV had such a great time interviewing authors at Writing NSW's Kids & Young Adult Festival. The events were packed but we still managed to persuade authors Jaclyn Moriarty, Garth Nix and Belinda Murrell to spare some time to talk about their latest books and share their book and food tips. Everyone else must have had a great time too, because the event trended fourth on Twitter for the day, no mean feat.

The Lace Weaver – Lauren Chater

Sarah's review
A charming debut novel from author Lauren Chater, The Lace Weaver is set in Estonia, just prior to World War II. Squeezed between the two major powers of the Soviet Union and Germany, Estonia is coveted by both. Maintaining independence is all but impossible, and the Estonians endure great hardship as two evil empires - the Russians, then Germans - occupy their land. The people take great heart from their traditions, particularly lace weaving.

We are so excited. This week we feature our first debut author Lauren Chater, who has written a beautiful novel set in World War II Estonia, called The Lace Weaver. It's a story of love and courage in one small country caught between warring powers. We cook Estonian ribs and investigate Lauren's blog The Well Read Cookie.

King of Ashes – Raymond E. Feist

Sarah's review
Fantasy fans have been awaiting Raymond E. Feist’s ‘King of Ashes’ the first novel of his new trilogy, The Firemane Saga, with keen interest. It is the first book Feist has written outside the universe of The Riftwar Cycle in more than 30 years, and few knew what to expect. The fantasy master wanted to break with tradition, and he has. In Garn, magic takes a back seat to politics and the social context, while human passions - the lust for power, love and revenge - take centre stage.

The Inaugural Meeting of the Fairvale Ladies Book Club – Sophie Green

Sarah's review
Set in the isolation of the vast, sparsely populated Northern Territory, in a land of cattle stations and stockmen during 1978-1981, The Inaugural Fairvale Ladies Book Club harks back to an even earlier Australia. Just as Australia’s pioneer women suffered the trials of isolation, the women of the small towns and cattle stations in Australia’s north continue this tradition today.
