Tragedy manifold
—VN
One Summer, David Baldacci, Macmillan, Pp 331(PB), Rs 499.00

IF misery loves company, it has lots, said H D Thoreau. In David Baldacci’s One Summer, tragedy strikes like a sequential serial. Jack Armstrong is in death bed, diagnosed with an incurable disease, with just a few months of life left. His devoted wife Lizzie, who was a pillar of strength, gets killed in an accident. Unsure of future the children get separated, adopted into the families of relatives.

Suddenly life turns around for them. Lizzie is left her childhood home on seaside as inheritance. Jack, clinging to it like the last hope of a sinking man, puts his heart and energy into it to build the house and home back. His strongest assets are his hope and his love for and faith on Lizzie, that she is watching over him and the children. The travails of the family, Jack’s struggle with his ill-health and the growing children bring warmth to the hearts. And Jack conquers all. A touching novel that speaks hope, love and determination. Baldacci is a well-known novelist whose works have been translated into 45 languages selling millions of copies.

(Macmillan, 20 New Wharf Road, London N1 9RR)
