Book Description

It was a time of change and new ideologies, a vision of a more inclusive, fairer future... a time that was destined to shape the lives of many, and fail more than a mere handful.

Viewed retrospectively through the eyes of the now adult Carl Grantham, Children of the Resolution is a story of a child poised between two worlds. Thrown into the revolutionary world of integrated education in 1970s England, the physically disabled Carl finds himself torn between what he expects of himself and what his changing environment will allow.

At heart, a coming-of-age story -- Children of the Resolution explores the intricacies of friendship and loss, the subtle fears of childhood and the far less subtle fears of adulthoods possibly never realised.

Editorial Reviews


"Children of the Resolution is full of optimism, fight, courage, humour and emotion." Lord Willis of Knaresborough. --Lord Willis of Knaresborough.

From the Back Cover

"Children of the Resolution is more than a novel, it is a commentary on the work of educationalists, practitioners and politicians who see education through their own eyes and experiences and not those of the real participants, our young people." Lord Willis of Knaresborough.

I'm not quite sure what I expected when I started reading Children of the Resolution, but what I got was a book that is not only entertaining but also very enlightening. Carl is in many ways a typical teen attending the Resolution school, but with one big difference: he is in a wheelchair. As we see Carl struggle to deal with the frustrations and prejudices associated with his disability, the author takes us on a profound journey that I found truly touching. As Carl points out to others, he has a disability not a disease, and his determination and spirit as he faces learning, loss, and life are something we can all learn from. The author does a wonderful job of relating the emotion of the story in a way that really resonates. I highly recommend this book to everyone!

More About the Author

Gary is a novelist living in the northeast of England. His work, largely literary fiction, focuses on themes that touch us all -- love, death, loss and aspiration -- but always with an eye to finding an unusual angle or viewpoint. Quirky and highly readable, his writing aims to entertain first and foremost. If he can also offer a previously unfamiliar perspective or insight, all the better.
