Editorial Reviews

Review

At the time of writing this, "The Night Train" has 23 five star and 4 four star reviews for an average rating of 4.9. There's a reason for this. The story is excellent, the writing is strong, the characters are well developed, in short, it has everything a great novel needs to be great. Purdon has put together something which is so believable that one has to wonder if it actually is fiction. The sad truth is, even if it is, it accurately reflects the lives of many a child in our 'civilized' society today.
I read approximately one book per week and "The Night Train" was my first this year. If the other books I read are half a good as this one, 2013 will be a marvelous reading year. A well deserved FIVE stars! ...  Claude Bouchard, The Vigilante Series

From the Back Cover

Abused at home and bullied at school, young Jayrod Nash steals away on a freight train with a vow never to return. His best friend tags along,but his heart's not in it. They meet up with a hobo named Farley, whooffers protection in exchange for obedience, and soon learn he's running too.

"The Night Train" is a novel about the struggle ofinnocence against brutality, written with powerful characters who allowno commentary from the author. Together they paint a picture of life asit exists too often.

Carl Purdon weaves a tale that takes thereader through the full gamut of emotions, and leaves them feeling as if they have known the Nash family all their lives. Perhaps they have.
