This book is a sweet visit back in time. As Mr. McCoy tells the story of Carl he includes the details of simpler times and youthful innocence-but also includes the difficulties and responsibilities of those days. The way he told of Carl’s integrity and deep faith throughout the book inspired me. I quickly became attached to the characters and was sad to say goodbye to them when I read the last page. This book really is a page turner. Each chapter of Carl’s life makes you anxious for the next chapter! – Amazon Review
