really liked it

A very appealing look at the city of Boston, more particularly, its inhabitants. The period Mr. Carroll covers is the Kennedy era and it's very interesting to read the author's ideas about the relationship between Boston's Irish Catholics and this family that they felt somewhat belonged to them.

While the plot was a little sketchy at times, I found the characters wholly interesting and well depicted.
