This is the first novel written by noted author and poet Richard A. Heyman, Sr.. This novel traces the many affairs, highs and lows of a great American/Irish family as they rose to power and prominence in the United States. Although this was Mr. Heyman's first novel it is well written, and an interesting undertaking for this author who is better known for his two internationally famous children's book series Jack the Surfer Dude (1-4) and Max the Littlest Chihuahua (1-3).
