The acclaimed American writer Paul Horgan tells a classic coming-of-age-tale in this poignant story of a young Catholic boy growing up in early twentieth century New York. Young Richard lives in a comforting world of dreams and illusions. He travels the painful journey all of us have traveled--from the unavoidable, innocent illusions of childhood to the harsh beauty of loss, forgiveness, and hope. It's a journey to understanding things as they are.
