That's the one! I got it from a publishing rep a few years ago and it's been sitting on a shelf ever since. I'm so glad I finally read it! To heck with waiting 2 months - make your sister send it to you! Media Mail rate is cheapOriginally Posted by Mike'sgirl;3696058;
I don't know why I didn't keep reading The Given Day the first time I picked it up because I'm really enjoying it now. It's set (so far) in Boston in 1918 and, based on the info on the book flap, takes place against the backdrop of the Boston policemen's strike. I've read several by Lehane before, but this one feels very different.
