REVIEW

by Roger J Buffington

Our world as it might have been. The world stands at the brink of a nuclear showdown. Canada seeks survival in this uncertain time. This is the formula that makes for an unusually insightful and even profound story about ordinary people living against this extraordinary backdrop.

This novel features excellent character development, and is a wonderful story of political intrigue, calculation, human weakness and ultimately the power of the human spirit. In fact, I rank this novel easily as Hailey’s best, and it also ranks as one of my all-time favorites.

I learned more about Canada and the Canadian government reading this novel than I did in a semester of “The Politics of Canada” at UCLA. No kidding–this is a fascinating novel that tells a great story while acquainting the American reader with much of interest about our neighbor to the north.
