Well, I was at first a bit leary but soon got into it fast.
It was so hopeful and spiritual, just what I needed.
I want all my grand kids to read it and their parents.
Thank you for starting me on your second and third novel in the series.
Haven't read them yet but look forward to them.
My Romance Novelist will have to wait.
well-written and very interesting. Mr. Carey addressed a dilemma that is prevalant in our
society between parents and children and the ever-widening gulf in the generation's work-
place. Days were when children followed in their parent's footsteps and were expected to. If daddy
was a doctor or dentist, for example, chances were pretty good that a son or daughter
would follow in that chosen field. Now days, in our new era of advanced technology, which
happened quickly.....parents and children live in different worlds.....and seek careers that are
Mr. Carey set his novel in a mining town, with father's working in the mines and families
living in housing provided for those employed in the mines. It was an expectation that sons
would also choose to work there as well, beginning with working summers while in high school
to secure their employment at graduation. The two young men in this book decided that they
would rather work in "Bluefield", a neighboring town, as golf caddies so they could be outside
in the fresh air for the summer. To do so, the parents of the boys had to sign the applications
and of course serious conflict ensued as one of the fathers had spoken to the supervisor of
the mine to encourage them to take on the boys....putting in a good word for them, etc.
Mr. Carey handled this conflict very well and the story revealed much love and respect from
cover to cover. How all of this is resolved is wonderful and I wouldn't want to spoil the drama
for you, but it is an exciting and excellent book to read. There is even a sprinkling of the
Christian spirit here and there which I appreciated as well. Mary J. Hathway
Keith and Flea headed up a stellar cast of characters that kept me entertained well past my bedtime. Flea learned to live with the nightmare of polio and it's aftereffects. Keith went against what his parents wanted to stand up for himself and forge his own path, all the while staying loyal to his friendship with Flea. Through it all, family values were woven into the story.
Even though the book was originally written as YA fiction, it is a story that crosses those barriers. I really enjoyed and loved this story. On to "Out of the Rough" to see what happens next!
I loved the character and integrity of Keith so much and the Christian love he expressed..
I want to read all the sequels. So well written.
