Read full description of the books:
Shannon's Way is the sequel to "The Green Years" and I think it is best reading them back to back, although you could easily read them as stand alones if you can only get a hold of one or the other.
So Shannon has finally got his medical licence with all the extras that are important to a man wishing to go into medical research. He lands several good jobs but manages to lose them one after another due to personality conflicts and conflicts of interest among superiors.
Shannon's driving passion is to isolate the baccilli which is causing a flu epidemic among both people and cattle, and to develop a vaccine to stop it's spread. But there are obstacles both monetary and organizationally that must be overcome and it's a race against time...
And adding as a distraction to his career, (and hers) is the Iove of a good woman from another religion who can never be his...
I really enjoyed this. A J Cronin paints very realistic characters. They speak and move like real, flawed, people who make good decisions and bad. Sometimes, you will hate the main character. But at the same time, you'll root for him because you know where he's been and why he's acting like he does. And you'll see the good deep down inside.
The ending was very good and yet I still wonder if it was for the best... I wish there was a third book. But it made me cry (inside) and that shows you how involved I got with the characters. That's a good thing.
