“Across three generations and as many wars, this earnest novel explores the ways boys become men and how even flawed men may stand as models for the young... A well-paced, affecting read.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Butler’s latest delves into the meaning of loyalty and friendship, how some rise to life’s challenges while others fail...
