Dusgadh: Essence of Life "dare I say I can see something of the Harry Potter series about this book" #RPBP #ASMSG
Dusgadh: Essence of Life by Margaret Daly is a powerful assemble of teenage angst and the paranormal, concerning the life and times of a young girl called Ember who always felt like the odd one out.
Daly, who has experienced tragedy in her own life, sets the scene for Ember, a girl in middle school who experiences the disturbance of having her family taken from her.
She is left with her sister and just seems to amble along in life until she attends a party as a teenager. It is a party that will change her life forever. After a séanceis held in a park, catapulting Ember into a world of paranormal shocks, she realises that she has a natural gift that brings connections to a previous life.
The book is action packed and will keep the reader engrossed to the end, definitely wanting more from the next series of books. As you read through this book you realise that it will be the first of many to come.Many characters are mentioned in it briefly that will be fleshed out in sequel books in relation to Ember’s life.
The book is suitable for older children and teenagers, and dare I say I can see something of the Harry Potter series about this book and its focus on one individual who although from a dysfunctional background has a natural gift for magic and the paranormal.
So I would without a doubt recommend this book if you’re a fan of the mysterious and spooky mixed with adventure.

An interesting and enlightening book.
By John and Robert Fear
By Samantha Parker
I loved this book! Reading about the places he visited in South Wales, East Anglia, King’s Lynn, Great Yarmouth was particularly poignant as I live in South Wales and have family that live in these areas of the UK. I must admit to previously not knowing very much about Brethren or the 2nd World War, but I found it very interesting to read about his personal experiences, which he shared openly.
The pictures were a valuable and enhancing addition to the book and brought it to life for me as a reader.
The use of quotes was a nice and personal touch and were added sensitively.
The chapters flow well and keep you wanting to read more.
I love how it goes though the years, referring to all aspects of his life.
Herbs and their medical use, that his dad made up for his own use was very interesting.
The way that the story covered his infant years, schooling, employment, getting married having children, losing family members, travelling, retirement in context to his story was excellently written. By using extracts from his diary he managed to provide great references: Air raids, rations, fuel rationed, civil service, etc.
I particularly enjoyed and appreciated the detailed descriptions, such as the hob nailed boots of the miners, which again brought the period and the experience to life.
A highly recommended read and congratulations to author Robert Fear for bringing his father’s story to publication for us experience.

Prunes For Breakfast~ A Fascinating War Time Read!
5.0 out of 5 stars
A fascinating wartime read.
By Mrs BEH Towers on June 10, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition
I am not normally a lover of war-based books, but I was attracted by the title and decided to read it anyway. I’m so glad I did. For me it is as much a study of social history as it is a story about one man’s experiences in World War 2.
Prunes for Breakfast focuses on the experiences of the author’s father, Eddie, when he signs up to join his local reserve regiment in the 1940s. What immediately sets it apart from many others on the subject is that much of the story is told through letters sent by Eddie to his wife. Letters that were so important at the time for the recipient, and which have been cherished and faithfully preserved.
I was fascinated by his commentary on day-to-day activities as the regiment wait for the call-up, some of which seemed humdrum and therefore challenging in their own way. But it doesn’t last forever. They starkly contrast to the horrors of war, which are then related in a very different way to protect his wife from the harsh reality of the situation. Latterly his capture and incarceration in a prison camp lends yet another dimension to his wartime experiences.
Without doubt I would recommend this book to anyone who has a special interest in World War 2 and the social history that surrounds it. The intimacy of the letters, in particular, gives the reader a direct insight of how one serviceman coped with being apart from his new wife, and latterly child. That, coupled with John Searancke’s excellent, clear writing style, makes this a compelling read.
