Reviews of The Devil's Elbow
Brings the 1600's Bay Colony alive. A rousing story about tragedy, triumph, perseverance, and love. Rich in historical detail with well developed characters you will come to know. An enjoyable read from start to finish.
A very good story. This book is a wonderful read. Mr. Londergan brings history to life. His depiction of life in colonial Massachusetts is right on. It reminded me of Kenneth Roberts classic story Arundel but much easier to read. One of the best historical novels of this era. I hope there are many more coming.

Great Story. I love this book. It's a great read, full of interesting history and great characters. I can't wait for his next book.
Made me feel like I was there. I couldn't put it down. The characters are so real. The events are heartwarming, exciting, and historically accurate. Wonderful writing.
Reviews of The Long Journey Home
History comes alive! I’ve just finished reading The Long Journey Home and I was totally captivated, entertained, educated, and moved. Thank you for your fine work. It brought me closer to the men and women of the first and second settlement, the harsh realities of the life in those times, and the enduring spirit of family that drove the expansion westward.
So realistic. I loved this book as I did the first. Especially the fact that I know all the areas that this took place in. I only live a few towns away and I can pronounce the names appropriately. I felt like I was there with them. I wish that more books could be written about some of the history that took place in our towns. I also love the way he writes. His story line is fantastic.

Enjoyable Novel! I enjoyed The Long Journey Home. This is a sequel to Devil's Elbow and really summed up the historical events of the main character's life. I really liked the setting in central and western MA and the historical references. Good read!
