Gutsy seventeen-year-old Albert “Shoe” Horn is an apprentice plumber and part-time boxer in 1920s England, but after the death of his mother he is left to provide for his alcoholic father and look after his younger brother Bobby—a teenager with the mind of a child. After Shoe inadvertently kills a man in a fight, he must try to balance the need to protect his brother and his desire to protect himself.

Shoe’s story unfolds against the 1922 union strikes in England, as he struggles to choose between living his father’s life with his brother and a new life in America … alone.

    " An amazing listen. McLartey brings incredible characters to life and draws you into the gritty world of Shoe Horn, his brother Bobby and many memorable characters they relate to. Very, very good. "

    " AUDIO VERSION is worth it! (However, not with kids in the car...which is where I listen most) Ron McLarty reads his own work...and he is a great reader based on previous experiences...the characters in this book are unique and therefore worthy of having unique "voices." "
