Avatar for EmilyEm EmilyEm said:
Here’s a stellar debut novel flawlessly written—lyrical prose, realistic characters, and terrific sense of place. The story centers on a motherless boy, Karel Skala, his father and older brothers in three time periods from 1900 to 1924 in a Czech immigrant community in southeast Texas. Machart has used his knowledge of these people, their time and place to full advantage, building his tale on a classic ‘stranger comes to town’ plot. There’s horseracing, regret, revenge, beer smuggling, women who are strong and men who are good looking! What else does a story need! Some may have just a little trouble staying with a story that jumps back and forth in the three time periods and varying points of view. To me, it just made this superb book more interesting.
