Item description for City in Amber by Jay Atkinson...

In City in Amber, Atkinson has created a compelling story of Lawrence, Massachusetts, a planned industrial city built around the cloth and garment industry, moving from the city's construction and founding before the American Civil War to the sporadic conflagrations that plagued Lawrence in the 1990's. The writing in Atkinson s novel is so fine that even the downright evil characters manage to eke out a moment of sympathy from the reader not to mention the laughter and sadness his other characters evoke. And just as the amber metaphor in the title indicates, the reader is constantly pleased and surprised to pick up certain nearly mystical threads from generation to generation: Ah, that s what happened to those solid gold cufflinks! Ah, that's where that poor man's tooth wound up! City in Amber offers an amazing cast of characters and plots, just as it offers an entirely pleasurable and leisurely read.

Reviews - What do customers think about City in Amber?

A Tale of a City in Amber  Nov 26, 2007
This is an amazing story, at times heartbreakingly sad and then suddenly hilarious. The characters became very real to me and evoked true emotion. Ultimately I found "City in Amber" to be much more than a chronicle of Lawrence's history. It is as much a chronicle of the human condition; good vs. evil, the choices we make and even the choices we allow others to make for us and of course... the consequences. Once I'd started this book I found myself grabbing every spare minute I could find to read and then thinking, almost obsessively, about the characters and story until I could get back to it again. I loved this book and suspect you will too. Don't wait, treat yourself and buy "City in Amber" now.
