    As a resident of Copper Cliff I was really looking forward to reading this It is a glimpse into the past that we don't often get to experience The story is interesting however I was a little disappointed with the prose It is ok for the most part but there was something missing in the writing

    A great look into Sudbury's past It's time someone wrote this story Much research was done in the writing of this novel which showed in the details in the story Only downside is that the research overtook the story and characters in some places Can't wait to read the next volume Must read for all Sudburians

    Truly a work of fiction in the spirit of Upton Sinclair
