"The Valorous Years" represents something of an event for fans of A. J. Cronin. Here, published for the first time in book form, is his poignant and moving story of a young man, Duncan Stirling, who, though his left arm is crippled by polio, is determined to become a world-famous physician. Woven into Duncan's life are three unforgettable women-Margaret, whose charm and beauty cast a spell over him; Anna, a brilliant surgeon who wants to heal his useless arm; and Jean, the compassionate daughter of a kindly country doctor. With his keen understanding of the human condition, his deep moral conscience, and his extraordinary narrative skill, A. J. Cronin imbues "The Valorous Years" with all the qualities that have made his many other novels worldwide bestsellers.
