Reseña del editor

In the twilight of his life, a son examines fragments of his family's moral trek through the played-out century. Historically authentic settings and mores rekindle the past: backwoods Kentucky... a booming young Detroit... anti-German hostility during The Great War... whiskey-running and speakeasies... twists of fortune after The Crash... the Machiavellian inner sanctums of the world's largest industry... the World War II American home front... sea-changes in society and in private lives that accompanied Post-War normalcy. Gradually, the saga coheres on the pathways of its two protagonists: Elgan, a complex, introspective Southern boy whose demons drive him to escape a numbing poverty of the coal fields for a new identity; Grace, the stalwart city girl, paternally orphaned at seven, a realist making the best of a damaged life with irony and industry. The pathways to faith are badly marked and studded with mines. The pilgrim, however brave, is often his own greatest obstacle. Elgan and Grace is one man's witness to what really happened. It is written with passion, literary care, and good humor, for these times and for the generations that come next.

AS I READ THIS BEAUTIFUL BOOK, I have [the author] to thank for lighting a fire under me to leave a legacy for my own generation (Gen X). . . a true story of strength, hope, wisdom, and good old American perseverance. Elgan And Grace is not just a saga of the 20th century, but a message… needed for ours and future generations!
