really liked it

I liked this installment a lot better than I liked the first of Fitzgeralds's family histories, Papa Married a Mormon.

The writing was better, the characters more finely drawn, and the events recounted were so interesting. And sometimes tragic, indeed. It made me feel like I was part of the extended family. Again, Uncle Will was a favorite- I'm looking forward to reading Fitzgerald's bio of him, and then I think I'll be moving on to the Great Brain books.

Recommended, if you like this sort of thing.
