Moving beautifully between the 30's and the 50s, this story has a depth and breadth that one might not anticipate when reading the brief story description. We hear about the stoicism of parents, of angst and hopes of boys as they grow into men and the impact of World World II on this community. In an almost hypnotic way, Paul Hecht's voice and narration talents brings the individuals to life drawing you in like a fish on a line. The tale evolves and at the end, after heart-breaking tragedy, times of gentle humour and poignant tenderness, you are left satisfyingly content with the balance of it all.
