    Kings Row characters ✓ eBook PDF or Kindle ePUB Kings RowA truly wonderful book about turn of the last century small town America I would unhesitatingly give it five stars if the homosexual character who was otherwise sympathetically portrayed was subjected to some of the mistaken prejudices of the age that seem ludicrous now such with an overprotective mother that causes him to hate women Bellaman has a way of writing the dialogue of both hick
