Review by: Willie Wit on June 20, 2014 :
First impressions suggest this book contains a simple tale, but strong and subtle depths soon begin to emerge - a gentle grip that pulls you in.
An interesting and entertaining range of characters develop, carefully crafted into their respective parts - neatly held together in a delicate balance.
The storyline intrigues, growing at a steady pace, drawing you forward. At times you attempt to peek around its corners - curious as to where it is heading.
Ultimately you come to realise it has been a simple tale, and that this has been its great strength - because it is one that has been told so well.

Review by: Pentalpha Publishing Edinburgh on April 23, 2014 :
A delightful read from start to finish. The characters are well drawn, the dialogue is spot on and, despite there being a cast of thousands, I could easily keep up with who was who. The Baer Boys is always amusing and often laugh out loud funny but at the same time there is an underlying pathos. I don’t mean it’s schmaltzy or anything like that but just that it has heart. It would make a great film - or a musical even.
