On a windy spring day in the Chilterns, the calm, organized life of science writer Joe Rose is shattered when he witnesses a tragic accident: a hot-air balloon with a boy trapped in its basket is being tossed by the wind, and in the attempt to save the child, a man is killed. A stranger named Jed Parry joins Rose in helping to bring the balloon to safety. But unknown to Rose, something passes between Parry and himself on that day--something that gives birth to an obsession in Parry so powerful that it will test the limits of Rose's beloved rationalism, threaten the love of his wife, Clarissa, and drive him to the brink of murder and madness. Brilliant and compassionate, this is a novel of love, faith, and suspense, and of how life can change in an instant. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Master's Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, University of Al-Qadisiyah, language: English, abstract: This thesis deals with intertextuality in Ian McEwan's novels. The aim of this study is to show how McEwan uses intertextuality and how this technique is used to develop the themes, characters, and narration of his novels. This study tries also to label the different kinds of intertextuality that McEwan uses. This thesis is divided into an introduction, three chapters, and a conclusion. Intertextuality is an important subject in literary and linguistic studies. As a term, it was introduced by Julia Kristeva in 1966. The main idea of intertextuality is the shaping of a texts' meanings in the light of another. Consequently, there is no text, rather intertext. Other critics and theorists developed this theory. Mikhail Bakhtin has a social approach to it. Roland Barthe adapts a textual analysis of intertextuality, and focuses on the role of the reader rather than of writer. Chapter one of this thesis is an introduction and is divided into three sections. Section one tackles the theory of interextuality. It discusses its definition, applications, roots and history, development, and its pioneers, while section two focuses on the multiple types and devices of intetextuality. Section three focuses on Ian McEwan's life and career. Chapter Two studies McEwan's Enduring Love (1997). It tackles important issues such as the controversy between human studies and literature on the one hand, and science on the other. The researcher tries to discover what kind of intertextuality this novel has. Chapter three discusses McEwan's masterpiece, Atonement (2001). It is a very rich intertextual novel. The researcher tries to discover McEwan's aim behind this aura of intertextuality, how he exploits them for the sake of the themes, techniques, narrative, and finally for the sake of metafictionality. In chapter four, the rese

'I have fallen completely in love with Judith Lennox's writing - she's a fantastic storyteller!' Jill Mansell With the onset of war, everything changes... Judith Lennox writes an unforgettable novel of enduring love and the tides of fortune in the compelling novel Footprints on the Sand. Perfect for fans of Dinah Jefferies and Lucinda Riley. The Mulgraves are a rootless, bohemian family who travel the continent, staying in crumbling Italian palazzos, Spanish villas, French vineyards - belonging nowhere, picking up friends and hangers-on as they go, and moving on when Ralph Mulgrave's latest enthusiasm dwindles. Faith, the eldest child of the family, longs for a proper home. But in 1940, Germany invades France and the Mulgraves are forced to flee to England. Faith and her brother Jake go to London, while Ralph reluctantly settles in a Norfolk cottage with the remnants of his family. In the intense and dangerous landscape of wartime London Faith finds work as an ambulance driver, and meets once again one of Ralph's retinue from those distant and, in retrospect, golden days of childhood. Through war and its aftermath, it is Faith on whom the family relies, Faith who offers support and succour, and Faith who is constant and true in her love. What readers are saying about Footprints on the Sand: 'Curl up and get lost in this wonderfully written book that takes you from early 1900 through to the 1960s' '[Judith Lennox] can paint a picture so vividly in your mind, make you care about her characters, make you feel the anguish, the partings, the love that is taken away and then given back. A wonderful read' 'Such wonderful escapism - well written and compelling!'
