Yes "The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail" is written by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh and Henry Lincoln. If you liked that one I'm sure you will love the sequel "Bloodline of the Holy Grail" by Laurence Gardner.
I was going to name J.R.R. Tolkien's - The Lord of the Rings as my all time favourite, but then I remembered "Mister God, this is Anna" by Fynn.
~~"The difference from a person and an angel is easy. Most of an angel is on the inside and most of a person is on the outside."
These are the words of six-year-old Anna, sometimes called Mouse, Hum, or Joy. At five years old, Anna knew absolutely the purpose of being, knew the meaning of love, and was a personal friend and helper of Mister God. At six, Anna was a theologian, mathematician, philosopher, poet, and gardener. If you asked her a question you would always get an answer-in due course. On some occasions the answer would be delayed for weeks or months; but eventually, in her own good time, the answer would come: direct, simple, and much to the point.
She never made eight years; she died by an accident. She died with a grin on her beautiful face. She died saying, "I bet Mister God lets me get into heaven for this." And I bet he did too. ~~
Not a book about religion, although Anna speaks to Mister God. It was the insight on life itself which amazed me and left me pondering many times. This book makes you laugh and cry, and leaves you with a feeling of "understanding". LOL - I guess I'm recommending this book - highly!
