Historical Michigan Author

A Michigan author who received a 2012 Michigan Notable Book award for his novel “Michigan & the Civil War: a Great & Bloody sacrifice” has given “The Sugar House” a Five Star Review!

“I thoroughly enjoyed this work and have shared it with others. For those entangled in Detroit history and fascinated by the fabric of the city in the early 20th century, this is a book you’ll want to read. It’s based on family lore (many facts from the author’s grandfather’s life growing up in Detroit) and a fine level of research. A really well-done first-time effort at fiction. Reading about the life and times of Polish-Catholic immigrants in Detroit’s ethnic neighborhoods in the pre-WW2 era (though not the gangs) makes one want to go to Hamtramck right now!” John Dempsey
