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.
IT WAS A SMALL PENNSYLVANIA TOWN AT THE TURN OF THE CENTURY. A WORLD OF CORRUPTION AND GREED, WHERE SECRETS WERE PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE AND LOVE WAS FOR INNOCENTS. THIS WAS THE WORLD OF JASON GARRITY. A MAN OF PASSION AND PRINCIPLE. A MAN WHO HAD PULLED HIMSELF UP FROM THE SLUMS AND NOW HAD EVERTHING HE THOUGHT HE WANTED. WHAT HE WANTED MOST WAS BEAUTIFUL PATRICIA MULLIGAN, DAUGHTER OF THE TOWN'S WEALTHIEST MAN. JASON FANTASIZED ABOUT HER, LONGED FOR HER FROM AFAR--NEVER DREAMING THAT HIS GREAT BEAUTY WOULD SOON BE HIS. FOR PATRICIA HAD FALLEN IN LOVE WITH JASON'S BEST FRIEND. AND EVEN NOW WAS BEARING HIS CHILD. BUT HE LOVED ANOTHER....THUS IT BEGAN. THIS TALE OF TANGLED PASSIONS AND THE BRUTAL COST OF WEALTH AND POWER.
