    • Hi kathy. I’m sorry, it’s only available on an eBook device, Kindle, Nook, etc.

      However, you can download free programs such as “Kindle for PC” – open an account with Amazon and download the book. This is what I did to view Kindle books before i purchased a Kindle reader. It’s a little cumbersome but workable. I think your father would enjoy the book. It’s set in Port Richmond and my characters attend four years at a high school which I renamed St. Brenda’s and staffed it with Irish Christian brothers. The tales are vintage North Catholic.

      Jim Smith Class ’51.
