Pretty much irrelevant to the topic at hand here, but the movie titled "Five Children and It" (2004) popped into my head when I started writing this post. Has anyone else seen it? The film was received with mixed reviews, but I think it is quite charming. It is based on the book by the same title written in 1902 by Edith Nesbit about five children who move from London to the countryside in Kent where they meet a sand fairy at the beach who grants them each one wish that lasts a day and invariably deals with a lesson in consequences.

Now, years later, he understood at least a part of the reason he had survived when his comrades had died.His telomeres--little stretches of DNA at the ends of his chromosomes--never shortened, no matter how many times his cells divided.
This is Eve's second novel written for Dorchester's Shomi line of 'action romance' and is the sequel to her August 2007 novel, Driven.
