A fantastic story

A wonderfully written story that touches on so many faucets of life from love to hate, from honesty to lies, from kindness to cruelty. It spans a period of history that starts in the depression, progresses to the death camps in Nazi Germany and comes to rest in the oil fields of Texas. Beautifully read it's one of the finest stories I've listened to. Burke is a genius !

Quality

Like nearly every other book written by Mr. Burke and narrated by Mr. Patten, this excellent novel kept me interested the whole time. James Lee is a league apart. Upon finishing, I felt joy, and a little sadness, not unlike the feeling of losing a close friend. I will listen to this again in the future, maybe next time I won't still feel like I want to cry after the epilogue.
