Fourscore and Upward by Michael Reidy

Fourscore and Upward


Chill with a Book READERS’ Award

When Andrew Trumbull told us in freshman year that he wanted to be president, we assumed he meant class president. “No. President. White House. Washington,” he replied seriously, and we knew we were dealing with someone different.

It helped that Andrew came from a long line of Massachusetts politicians, but before he could get his name on the ballot, he had to do the same things as the rest of us: study, play tennis, organize pranks, go to dances, and face the prospect of going to Vietnam.Andrew went into the Army; I was in the Navy, floating around the Mediterranean, and our friend Matthew Ryan, whose draft number was 354, was in graduate school.

As for what came later, we couldn’t have imagined.

Fourscore and Upward is the first volume in The Trumbull Chronicles. The story continues in The Time of No Horizon and concludes with In an Age without Honor.

Pages: 371
