In the year 1947, Michael Devlin, eleven years old and 100 percent American-Irish, is about to forge an extraordinary bond with a refuge of war named Rabbi Judah Hirsch. Standing united against a common enemy, they will summon from ancient sources a power in desperately short supply in modern Brooklyn-a force that's forgotten by most of the world but is known to believers as magic.--From Content Reserve screen.

Michael Devlin, is a boy just coming of age in post-war [1947] Brooklyn, the same year Jackie Robinson joins the Dodgers. He makes the acquaintance of Rabbi Judah Hirsch, fortuitous for many reasons, and an unlikely one for this Irish-Catholic boy. Hamill is a master of this time and place; great realistic characters with all the joys and disappointments of growing up in an immigrant neighborhood. A page-turner for me.
