The story begins in a small Polish town during World War I. The narrator takes you with him to America and romances you through the "Roaring Twenties," vividly relives the depression filled thirties, and leads you through the epic events of World War II . He tells of toil, tragedy and triumph and though it has a Jewish flavor, its appeal is universal. For older readers, it is a nostalgic and informative look back. For younger readers, it should prove an inspiring and educational experience. . . . And a love story to boot.

The author's excellent memory for the colorful details of his growing-up years makes this a vivid coming-of-age story, set within the greater context of the development of the United States in the first half of the twentieth century. My own family also came from Eastern Europe to the Eastern United States about a century ago, and I loved recognizing bits and pieces of my own grandparents' experiences in the stories Mr. Nolbay tells in his inimitable, authentic style. His relationship with his father is a particularly moving strand woven into the fabric of the tale, and I loved reading Mr. Nolbay's interpretation of his father's accent, which evoked memories of my own father quoting his dad, who spoke Yiddish and came from a shtetl in the Ukraine to make his way in America.

This is the kind of novel that is felt in the heart..thought about way after reading and leaves a permenent impression. This book will give anyone hope, as the main character struggles against all odds, to become a success. It demonstrates experiences of the human spirit in the most diffucult of times and celebrates victorys that left impressions on the author and forms his many opinions. This is a true story of perserverence, A beleif in GOD and traditions that made this story believable and inspiring. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a real American hero to celebrate and aspire to. E.M. Nolbay's father would be very proud of his first born. "A true heartfelt read", and a treasured legacy to the authors family.

Having grown up in the Bronx, NY during the great depression, seeing my older brothers go off to war, I found this book taking me back to my childhood. Though the author was a generation slightly ahead of mine, the experiences of his family could easily mirror those of my own. The author has absolutely captured the essence of the times in a charming history of a Jewish family from Poland and its Americanization.
The goals and aspirations of the idealist father that were never realized by him, which were brought to successful fruition by the son, is an inspirational story to be appreciated by any reader. Once started it's hard to put down.

How the book touched my heart and brought back so many memories... such as... my mother sewing neckties and my father selling them door to door in New York. When he just could not live with that anymore, he worked the graveyard shift for Klein's downtown as a bookkeeper. (He was a symphony conductor in Berlin, Germany -- never touched a piano again) I arrived in New york with my parents in 1938 and lived from 1938 to 1952 at West 98th Street between West End Ave. and Broadway. I loved the book, the places he writes about is like old home to me. .

I didn't think I would enjoy this book till I got into it and couldn't stop. The author (or narrator) tells a poignant story of growing up in America during the early part of the Century in such an interesting and unique way, that it almost made laugh and cry at the same time.I hope he writes the sequel soon.
