What is Mr. Danforth Reading?


This list dates back to the summer of 2004.  I feel reading is something that everyone should do for enjoyment.  There is nothing like creating imagery in your mind when you read a good book.  I still have never seen a movie based on a book that is better than the actual book!

As you can see from the descriptions of earlier books on this list, I enjoy historical fiction.  This time it is set in 1840s New York City and the main character, Timothy Wilde, has just survived a horrible fire.  His older brother has gotten him a job as one of the first policemen in NYC history.  This is taking place while someone is murdering children - many of whom are Irish immigrants who have come to America due to the Great Potato Famine in Ireland.
