This book is about Sarah, a spunky seven-year-old, who thinks she and her family are on their way to visit her grandfather for their typical summer getaway. Sarah soon learns that this year will be different. Sarah's grandfather, Poppy Tom, will be implementing a plan using the elements of a beautifully penned poem lovingly devised by him and Sarah's late grandmother, Jennie, that embarks Sarah on an enchanting journey of adventure and discovery—including of her inner-self—that spans decades.
As the plan is put into action and Sarah's journey unfolds, we learn why her dedicated grandparents felt it necessary to provide their granddaughter with the tools and defense mechanisms she needs to succeed in an often challenging and unforgiving world.
Deep Within a Blueberry Sky emotionally immerses the reader into the inner workings of this ambitious plan that, if successful, confirms there are no limits or barriers to what a person can accomplish, no matter what their condition or circumstances. It simultaneously guides the reader, every step of the way, with Sarah on her daring and undaunted effort to overcome her "burdens" and achieve what just might be the richest reward.
Will Poppy Tom's and Grandma Jennie's plan work? Will Sarah be up to the task?
The ultimate of discoveries and triumphs await Sarah—and the reader, too—if she rises to the challenge and succeeds.

About the Author
Jeffrey J. Antonucci followed in the footsteps of his father, uncle, and grandfather, all master tradesmen, by working in construction as a bricklayer. It wasn’t until the idea for this story came to Jeff, as he tells it, like a slideshow before his eyes, that he ever even thought of writing, what would become, this novel.
Up until that point, Jeff’s writings consisted of small personal pieces and poems for family members and friends. In addition, for the time he was employed as a senior facilities manager for a European corporation, Jeff composed email communications that were creative and fun to read, yet conveyed information that was pertinent to the safety and well-being of the four-hundred plus people that worked at that facility.
Jeff attributes his ability to write this story, which speaks to the infinite power of love, to the love and devotion given to him by his incredible parents, Sarah and Thomas, to his four brothers and their beautiful families, to all of his extended family, and to so many friends that, to Jeff, are like family, too. He also attributes it to the immense love, support, and unflinching commitment given to Jeff by his wonderful and amazing wife and children, and their little dog, for not only this endeavor, but for always and forever.
It’s mentioned in this story that, when the gift of love is given, it gets reflected back to the giver in the same measure and all bask in its glow. Jeff knows he has been gifted with such love and is eternally grateful to the heavens above for that. Jeff’s desire now is to give each precious word of this story as little gifts of love to the reader, which in turn, gets reflected back in the same measure, allowing all to bask in its glow.
