This book gives an excellent look at Wright's life, work, philosophy, architecture and relationships. It covers a much more human look at the great man and his work that the documentaries usually don't have enough time to get just right. It is also as much about the great life of the author and great architect, John Lloyd Wright. I enjoyed this book very much and I would recommend it to anyone interested in architecture and/or Frank Lloyd Wright and wants an honest, complete view of his life and work. Its also one of those great personal stories that you just can't get in fiction.
I have been spending time on the Outer Banks for years and every once in a while, I got a glimpse of how different and fascinating the area around Morehead city was in the 1920's-1940's. "The Keepers Son" is a great story with great characters set in a time on the Outer Banks that is long gone. A great story of the lives of interesting characters.
Spending a lot of time there, I did find the narrator needed a bit of work with the nuances of the Eastern NC accent, but it did not detract from the great story and overall, and he did a fine job. I really recommend this read for WWII enthusiasts, especially set against the backdrop of actual history on the early days of the war along the NC coast. Its also just a great love story and with characters you will like...and I love the ending.
