Staff Reviews


This is the story of John Brown as told through the eyes of a young boy who is taken in by Brown after his father is killed. McBride's plot and the evocation of the time and place of this novel is extraordinary, and his portrait of John Brown is both flamboyant and in a strange way reverential. Brown comes across as a single minded fanatic, not quite mad but not entirely sane either. A terrifically engrossing read. Highly recommended. — Erik Barnum
