"The House of Daniel is pitch perfect. Harry Turtledove crafts a richly detailed portrait of barnstorming baseball in the 1930s, stitches it around a supernatural orb, and smashes this quintessential American story over the fence for a home run. Read it!” ―Scott Simkus, author of Outsider Baseball: The Weird World of Hardball on the Fringe (1876―1950)
"In a loving callback to the early days of a quintessential American sport, Turtledove (We Install and Other Stories) takes readers on a scenic tour of the highways and byways of an alternate United States in 1934...ideal for baseball lovers.” ―Publishers Weekly
"Turtledove has proved he can divert his readers to astonishing places...I know I'd follow his imagination almost anywhere.” ―San Jose Mercury News

The sex and violence is virtually non existence but is there now and then and should not affect your enjoyment of the book.
Last week, I decided to read it again, but this time I had a road atlas open to the various states that the team visited. Identifying the towns and routes that Jack Spivey, the narrator mentions made the book a much more enjoyable read.
