    On holiday in Cornwall, the three children discover an ancient map in the attic of the house that they are staying in. They know immediately that it is special. It is even more than that: it is the key to finding a grail, a source of power to fight the forces of evil known as the Dark. And in searching for it themselves, the Drews put their lives in peril.

    Bryan J. Peterson says: "A short but excellent tale."

    New York Times best-selling author Ian McEwan's novels have inspired sweeping critical acclaim and won such prestigious awards as the Booker Prize for Amsterdam and the National Book Critics Circle Award for his modern masterpiece, Atonement. With Saturday, McEwan has crafted perhaps his most unique achievement to date.

    Story

    This book talks about life moving along smoothly. Career and family is at their highest potential. Looking for the next frontier to explore without seeing how life has blessed him already. Lacks ability to communicate love and appreciation to family.
    When life takes a trip down a road that takes away your breath and stops your heart from beating in the blink of an eye. Life goes through a reevaluation that makes you stop in your direction you we're traveling in.
    This is now the time that the decision that is made contains life and death with every thought and action made.
    Great Read! Enjoy

    Things aren’t looking so good for Bernadette Murphy. With the breakup of her marriage, the sudden death of her father, and the announcement of her best friend’s pregnancy, Bernadette finds herself careening toward rock bottom. So why stop short? She quits her job, gets herself banned - for life - from the mall, and goes on a late-night infomercial spending spree. To top it all off, her dog gets kicked out of obedience school - again. Just when she thinks there’s nothing left for the universe to throw at her, she discovers the one thing she needs the most: a reminder of her father’s love.

    Story

    Loved the narrative of the story painting life’s emotional ups’ and downs’, with lots of color as Bernadette begins to understand what she is really made of. The story holds hope around every corner even through life’s most difficulty trials that she is traveling through. How the most unexpected characters around her become a life line that helps her find a new normal in her life around all the changes that are happing around her. Love the behaviorally challenged dog (Poindexter) just the right touch to soften any heat to move you along in the story. The narrative takes you through grief and heartbreaks that challenges her to see the reality of her life and how she will begin to live it again. In the end the human spirit triumphs through all the of life’s obstacles and with new tools to keep moving forward. Great Read! Fran
