Novel about three friends, a "Catholic priest and a Magyar; a Jew distiller of plum brandy; and a Calvinist, Slovak landed proprietor" and what becomes of them in the era of the "new nationalism" in Europe. The majority of the story is set in Hungary "with a vivid picture of the discouraging conditions there and the peasant and village folk's fine faith in America. But a poor Slovak boy of the town has become a clergyman in America and the end of the story depicts him as a victim of American war hysteria and miscarried war-mad patriotism" - Book Review Digest.
