Publisher's Summary

Peter Behrens' eagerly awaited second novel is The O’Briens. In the character of Joe O’Brien - ambitious railroad magnate and industrialist, fiercely loyal family man, brooding troubled soul - he gives us one of the most compelling and complex characters to come along in years. A brilliant follow-up to The Law of Dreams, and yet standing masterfully on its own, The O’Briens is a tragic, romantic, and ultimately hopeful epic of great heart, imagination and narrative force.

a good night's sleep with a family you will love being part of

I loved this story about a family's struggle to succeed in a new world , all too human, with love prevailing thru heartbreak. Mostly, I went to bed with it every night set on a timer and never failed to have a good night's sleep.

Great story, bad reader

I am still reading this book but I am so sorry I got it as an audio book as I don't like the reader. He does not enunciate "she," it sounds like "he" and it's very confusing when you think one character is being discussed only to hear "he" instead of "she" and you can't turn back the pages to see if you missed something. I will be sure to remember this reader, Paul Hecht, to make sure I don't get another book he has read.
