The folks in this work of historical fiction kind of remind you of people you know (and when you're done, you really feel like you know them). Mr. Franck's description of this early 20th century Colorado mining town makes you feel right at home, like you had been there once, a long time ago. And the tale grabs you from the first page. There's plenty of suspense, wit, and character development in the plot to keep you eagerly anticipating the next paragraph. In fact, this morning the booming clap of a severe thunderstorm awakened me at just about 1:00 AM, and after a couple of tosses and turns, I switched on the light, stacked a couple more pillows, and spent the next hour or so heading down the home stretch of the book. When I finally did try to go back to sleep, it was due to wisdom, not heavy eyes. As I drifted into the Land of Nod, it looked and sounded remarkably like Glory, Colorado.
If the compelling narrative and smooth writing style were not enough, 'Glory' is composed from a biblical worldview. Though he doesn't preach at you, Mr. Franck clearly portrays the Christian foundation underlying American culture a century ago. This is brought to life both through those who live in accordance with God's will and those who do not.
Read it; it'll do you good.
