Overview

Maggie O'Connor is a forty-two-year-old grandmother. She is also about to do battle with Satan... she just doesn't know it yet.

Bless the Child

What if your drug-addicted daughter left a newborn baby on your doorstep and disappeared?

What if she came back three years later and took the child you love into a satanic cult?

And, what if that child turned out to be mankind's last hope in the war between Good and Evil?

Would you risk your soul to save her?

Maggie O'Connor is about to answer these questions... maybe with her life. A vibrant, attractive, recently widowed partner in a Manhattan antiquities shop, she is too young to be a grandmother. Yet the love and the bond between her and her little granddaughter Cody is deep and rare enough to make her fight -- not just for custody, but for the child's life itself.

The law won't back her up. But the exorcist priest believes. And the rabbi who practices Kabbalah knows too much not to believe. And ancient raging memories of an Egyptian prophecy are rising within her own terrifying dreams.

Everybody wants the child.

Even the Devil.

And time is running out.

BLESS THE CHILD. You'll be touched to the heart, and chilled to the bone.

Can't believe how good this book was, I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. But really, if someone writes a really really good book, please don't make a movie unless you're absolutely sure it's gonna be good.

I purchased this book five years ago and I never regretted it (especially with reading it seven times since the purchase). I love the plot; it drags you right into the lives of the characters. Cathy Spellman did a lot of research on all the different aspects of this book (voodoo, satanism, Irish mystism, Egyptian history, etc.) I recommend this book for everyone with a passion for religon, history or family affairs. Even though it is 700+ pages, every page is worth turning. I found myself staying up late at nights to read as far as I could. For those of you who watch the movie, I recommend reading the book. There is so much more that happens in the book than can be explained in an 1.5-2 hour movie. Thank you Cathy Spellman.

My girlfriend introduced Cathy Spellman's book to me last month. She said she read it in 8th grade and loved it. As soon as I started reading the book, I saw the previews for the movie and couldn't wait to finish the book and see the film. My girlfriend decided to re-read the book as well. We both loved reading the book together and it brought our relationship to a higher level. We really enjoyed the Egyptian flavor it contained and were enthralled by the mythology. From the beginning to the end, the book kept us both interested and intrigued. Spellman impressed us with her knowledge and character analysis. However, once watching the movie, we were disappointed. The movie 'dumbed' down the plot for its American movie-goers. We highly recommend the book...but not the movie! If Spellman ever reads this---WE LOVE THE BOOK...JUST NOT THE FILM!!!

To say film makers took poetic license when they adapted this into film would be a gross understatement. The names are the same, only the story was changed to protect the innocent. Rest assured this is a very good book. Compelling, and thought provoking. Allows the reader to feel as though their apart of the story.

A truly underrated, amazing read. I have reread it several times and can't believe how much happens in one book. Do NOT judge this based on the horrendous attempt at a movie.

I have never read a book that affected me so much!! I truly had dreams while reading this book!! It was totally awsome! What a story, gripping, scary, yet a loving story about a blessed little girl!! The only regret is I lent the book out and never got it back! The movie was good but the book is 100% better!!

This story is more terrifying than the movie. The movie was not as scary as the book. The story is freaky, and I can't believe the movie left so much info from the book even though it was a frighting movie.

It is a great book. It is so much better than the movie could ever possibly try to be.

I have read this book several times (at least ten) since I bought it. It quickly became my favorite, so much that I bought it in hardcover as well as paperback. This book has many levels to capture your mind, from egyptian mythology, to jewish mysticism, to satanism and the occult, to the intense love shared between grandmothers and their grandchildren. I did not think that any movie could come close to doing this book the justice it deserved; and I was right. The movie was a injustice to the highest degree. For those who have seen the movie- read the book! You will be glad that you did! Thanks Cathy Cash Spellman for writing the book that has given me so much joy over the years! It has never failed to keep me enthralled!
