This book brought out several different emotions for me. First, I loved the descriptions of a small Midwest hometown. I grew up in this town, but so many people do and there will be fond memories of childhood. Second, there was a dark side to a Joe Carroll, an American veteran. Here was a man who could be both the fun, loving man and then become, a brooding, emotionally abusive man. This side made me sad. This was a man who had such power over his wife and children’s lives and unfortunately, so much of that power was used in a negative way. The final emotion was hope. At the end, his daughter and wife brought out some sorrow and repentance before Joe died. I definitely recommend American Icarus.
