In the finests Taylor Caldwell style. A multi-family drama that takes the reader into early twentieth century in a small-sized, small-minded Pennsylvania town. The hero is flawed but in the best manner. The reader just must stick with him and rally to his cause. Lots of lovely Irish courage and plenty of Dutch courage. I loved it.

By an 11 year old reader.
This book offers a sense of what it was like back in the 1900s. The story, a marvelous written book, shares the feelings and hardships of a boy, who in this ploit eventulally shares it as a man. This tale of a stong Irish man stuggiling to suceed is meant to be big. It lives up to any readers expectations in my opinion.
