Author Info
David Baldacci
It's rare that former presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush agree on anything, but both have publically proclaimed themselves fans of the bestselling novels of David Baldacci. Born (in 1960) and raised in Richmond, Virginia, Baldacci majored in political science at Virginia Commonwealth University before getting his law degree from the University of Virginia. He then practiced law in Washington D.C. for almost a decade, all the while trying to ignite his writing career by submitting short stories to various journals and publishers. After collecting rejection notices for several years, most people would likely surrender their dreams in frustration, but Baldacci decided to dive even deeper into his writing career by penning a novel, which eventually became the instant bestseller ABSOLUTE POWER. This remarkable debut showcases all of the literary stylings and plot elements that Baldacci has become best known for--sharply drawn characters testing their own morality as they become engaged in various levels of political intrigue. Several of his books document the high-stakes adventures of the Camel Club, a group of four political watchdogs who expose and undermine governmental conspiracies. While Baldacci's thrillers have become mainstays on bestseller lists worldwide, he has refused to settle into a niche churning out a formulaic series, instead exploring other genres in his critically-acclaimed books THE CHRISTMAS TRAIN and WISH YOU WELL. He is also a prominent philanthropist and, in 2002, Baldacci and his wife Michelle created the Wish You Well Foundation, a renowned charitable supporter of literacy programs.
From the Publisher
Annotation Known for his many legal thrillers, David Baldacci reveals his sensitive side with ONE SUMMER, a dramatic story of one family's efforts to overcome loss. Just as Jack Armstrong thought his time had come, that his terminal illness had finally run its course, fate sends him and his family a cruel blow: Jack's healthy and vibrant wife is struck by a car and killed. Flash forward less than a year, and Jack has made a remarkable recovery. His children, however, are still reeling from the recent traumas, so Jack brings everyone together to a beach house for a summer of personal healing and familial rebuilding.
Editors Note Jack, terminally-ill and preparing to say goodbye to his family, has a miraculous recovery after his wife is killed in a car accident and struggles to reunite his family at her childhood home on the South Carolina oceanfront. Reprint. A best-selling novel.
