About the book

Control can often be a good thing, especially when it protects your beliefs and sense of self. Oftentimes, though, taking control of your life in a manner wherein you’re hurting yourself and affecting other people can make you feel exhausted. Also, being controlling can make your loved ones feel as though you’re leading their lives for them, and not giving them the freedom to choose their own decisions. People need to have a sense of control in their daily lives. It’s this power to control their lives that gives people a sense of balance and harmony, but when they feel like something becomes out of their control, people experience anxiety.

About the book

Arthur Lakelady has many worries. Alys, his wife, is infatuated with the home renovator re-modelling the kitchen, or so their teenage daughter Gwen says. How Gwen knows this is a mystery to Arthur for she never leaves her bedroom, except to go to school and work. Gwen’s worried a family breakup will spoil her chances of a good university. That doesn’t concern Arthur for Gwen passes all her tests, often with more than 100%. That does worry Arthur; schools, he feels, should understand the meaning of percentage. While Gwen’s university career may be assured, Arthur is worried his son Lance may not even graduate from junior school, unless Lance forsakes hockey and soccer soon. Neither child’s university career may happen because Arthur’s biggest worry lies at work where his previously pleasant Canadian employer has just been taken over by Americans and they’ve replaced the local executives in order to introduce new ways. Arthur can see the new executives don’t think he’ll ever be new again. One particular new way that is worrying Arthur is IT and the Internet, which has become ubiquitous in 2001 and an ill-prepared Arthur is somehow supposed to lead his troops through this minefield. Arthur hires a young temp, Lydia, to help him but she only adds to his worry. He worries about her wish to be closer to him, which isn’t allowed in the new ways, and he worries she is just drifting through life without proper direction, which isn’t a good thing in Arthur’s old ways. All these immediate, personal worries aren’t helped by a truly serious one. A modern ‘Mad Mahdi’ has just killed thousands of Americans at the World Trade Center and Canada has agreed to join America and Britain in invading Afghanistan. Arthur’s sees that the world needs someone who can clear the confusion, make the complex simple and package it into manageable pieces -- it needs a diarist. Arthur maybe a nobody right now but in centuries to come he feels he could be considered the ‘Samuel Pepys of the 21st Century’. "This book is both funny and moving. One page you might laugh out loud, the next you might be in tears. This is the story of a modern family living their everyday lives, and how the war on terror affects them. We need more stories like this: raw, unfiltered, realistic, even showing the messiness of life and all." -Ashley Emma, bestselling author of Undercover Amish, Fearless Author, and the Ashley's Amish Adventures Series
