It is 1946. The great war is over. It is a time of peace. Return to a simpler time, a happy time of innocence and discovery. See the world through the eyes of young precocious Davey Monroe, whose journey through childhood will make you laugh until you cry, and then cry remembering a world that is all but lost in our memories. "The Short Happy life of Davey Monroe" is simply delightful. Not only does Mr. Evans perfectly capture youth in all its glory; but the innocence of that time, so pure and shining it had me crying as I laughed recalling my own childhood. "Davey Monroe" is an excellent read in every respect; and it should be mandatory reading for all who have for-gotten the pure joy of being a kid, no matter how old you are in years." - Lisa Adams Author of "Bound Justice". "The Short, Happy Life of Davey Monroe" made me smile from the first sentence. Evans continues to share his lighthearted humor in this delightful romp through the reminiscences of childhood - not just Davey's childhood, but yours, mine, all of ours. You can't help but find yourself nodding and saying, 'I remember that,' for we have all been Davey at some point.
I was completely charmed by it and eagerly recommend it." - Carrie Chesney Author of "Christopher". "Richard L. Evans is a master storyteller, one who transports the reader to a time of innocent triumphs and unvarnished truths, told with the clarity that can only be experienced through the eyes of a child." M. T. Acquaire Authors of "Marty Boggs" and the "Curse of Kutkara's Tomb".
