A few slightly humorous descriptions of events in the early part of the author's life, but for the most part a very sad, depressing tale of poverty and hunger in Irland in the early 20th Century.

Much better than the movie of the same name - not even the same story! Tells of the work and challenges when an American couple buys a villa in Tuscany that needs lots of work to make it inhabitable. Will make you want to go to Tuscany. Even has a great recipe for asparagus!

My favorite Dan Brown book, this one has to do with deception in governmental agencies instead of having a religious theme.

from the back:
Here is a profoundly moving, deeply inspiring book that no reader will ever forget. Already Joshua has been called "life-changing," "engrossing," "inspiring," "entertaining." Based on a scrupulously accurate reading of scripture, Joshua has universal appeal and is a true exercise in spirituality. Once you've read it, you'll want everyone you love to read it, too.
