"The book, Grandmothers Attic is a really good book in general. It’s good for young and older children too. The book in a way is very exciting! It keeps you on the edge of your seat and it makes you never want to put it down. It is also very informing about the Holocaust and all its details."

For centuries, the 'Chick' has blessed the Tidewater region of Virginia with life, even today in the face of deteriorating resources and dramatic environmental change. While an abundant ecosystem thrived in the water, a unique and culturally rich community that once dotted the Chick's riverbanks has dwindled near extinction. Author Jack Trammell spent the past three years on the river researching its incredible past and uncertain future. Drawing on old letters, photographs and the still extant memories of lifelong watermen like Captains Bill Buck Jr. and Art Conway, he weaves a fascinating narrative of this river community. Hop onboard and join the search for the record perch, the vanished villages, the proud Chickahominy tribe and the vestiges of the Civil War in this definitive and easy-to-navigate history of a sacred Virginia tributary.

Jack and Sarah are essentially opposites: Jack wears his heart on his sleeve, and Sarah is a person who never reveals her secrets; Jack is dependable and predictable, while Sarah's waters run deep and murky. Everyone around them is convinced they are wrong for one another, but Sarah and Jack defy the world and embark on marriage. To the surprise of everyone, it seems to be working fine. But life is filled with unexpected trauma, and the periodic discovery of terrible flaws in those we care so deeply about. It isn't long before Jack finds out that there is more to Sarah than anyone knows. One secret in particular turns their relationship upside down, and propels Jack on a journey that threatens the destruction of his marriage, the loss of a coming baby, and possibly even the end of his own life. Jack isn't ready for Sarah's Last Secret.
