An engrossing tale. I felt like I made friends with the characters and couldn't wait to get to the end, then I was sad when it finished. If it weren't for a gross factual error, I would have given it 5 stars. In Chapter 20, Charlie is given penicillin for lockjaw. This is in 1938, and penicillin wasn't commercially available until the 1940s.
