Publisher Description

"Gut-wrenching force...A majestic, fiery epic. The Given Day is a huge, impassioned, intensively researched book that brings history alive." - The New York Times Dennis Lehane, the New York Times bestselling author of Live by Night—now a Warner Bros. movie starring Ben Affleck—offers an unflinching family epic that captures the political unrest of a nation caught between a well-patterned past and an unpredictable future. This beautifully written novel of American history tells the story of two families—one black, one white—swept up in a maelstrom of revolutionaries and anarchists, immigrants and ward bosses, Brahmins and ordinary citizens, all engaged in a battle for survival and power at the end of World War I.

Oyamk ,

Great read!

A wonderful story from so many perspectives! I used it in the gym everyday and the time flew by....lost track of my exercise time because I was so captivated by the book. Will definitely read other works by the author.

Bravo

Outstanding book, with a thorough history lesson (or refresher, for some) but more entertaining than most action movies. His characters come to life and stay with you to the end, leaving an impression I'm confident will never leave.

The Given Day

Good but on the subject there are better books, The Fall of Giants for example, is to me more cohesive and faster developing story.
