Book Description: In any man's life there comes a moment, a very sweet moment that he remembers for all time. It may only come once. Of course there are also one's 'finest hours' which will stir the memory. However, men being men, there will be times when the depths are plumbed, when nadirs are reached, when the dark moments come. These ironic 'finest hours' are the black, rather to be forgotten moments, that all too frequently scar the emotions. Jude, a forty something cast adrift in modern times, still has his moments. They involve motorcycles and rock climbing, they of course also involve cack handed attempts at relationships which end up in a maelstrom of lunatic decisions. This story follows Jude from Cornwall to New Zealand and New York. The women left in his wake, Beth and Helen, have their own moments, sweet and not so fine, as their lives intertwine with a lost cause. Will Jude learn, is there still a sweet moment left? This story is both comic and tragi-comic as life's journeys rarely run smoothly.

Book Description: Back in the days of Ronald Reagan's America, those far-from-innocent days of nostalgic rot and willful illusion, small-town life was thought to be simple, pure, the source of all decent values, and the home of true hearts and ever helpful neighbors who bear each other's burdens. James McGrath, a church musician who has just destroyed his personal life and his career through an act of catastrophic stupidity, believes this nonsense just long enough to flee a city he loves. Hoping to heal, he goes to live with his father in a tiny town on the Canadian border. He finds what fools have always found: truths more ordinary and more bitter than he wants to accept and a life more impoverished and antagonistic than he imagined. Descending into this bleak reality, like Jesus in the wilderness, James must face and answer the question: what do we live by? He makes some friends, falls in and out of love, rediscovers his art, and eventually finds a way back into his life. But it's not a smooth journey, and it comes with a price.

Book Description: Seventy years ago, Europe lay at Hitler's feet. Britain faced its darkest hour - outnumbered and friendless as the German army continued its advance. Defeat or capitulation seemed inevitable. But instead a legend was born.Taking its readers on a breathtaking journey from open lifeboats in Atlantic gales to the cockpits of burning fighter-planes, and through cities devastated by the Blitz, FINEST HOUR recreates the terror, the tragedy and the triumph of the Battle of Britain.This powerful account of the events of 1940 is told through the voices, diaries, letters and memoirs of the men and women who lived, loved, fought and died during this terrible yet inspiring year.FINEST HOUR also contains a provocative analysis of key turning points, and questions some cherished national myths. Cutting through the nostalgic haze, this book enables readers to experience a time - still within living memory - when a nation's darkest hour became its finest.
