Freeland's Sons is Kirk Brocker's first novel; a work that offers a gentle return to a time where days seemed a little longer, your ice cream somehow sweeter and friends felt like family. When you're 11 and fresh out of school for the summer of 1963, Freeland, Iowa becomes more than you remembered or expected. For Dallas Albright and his friends the old place is now filled with new people and life changing adventures. As Dallas once said, "The local sheriff never did figure out how that fire got started. Some people said it was bad luck. Other's thought that maybe it was for the best. But any way you look at it, old Maddie Champion's farm burned to the ground last night and that's going to make for some changes in our town."
