Galahad Cried is a novel based upon the true story of the adventurous life and loves of Bert Harper, a country boy who became a close friend of future Prime Minister of Canada, William Lyon Mackenzie King. The book portrays the various pitfalls and fortunes of Bert’s extensive career situations with aspects of political intrigue through heart-rending experiences as a newspaper reporter and bon vivant as he strives to be an honourable person. In an ironic twist of fate, his own honour is his undoing in the ultimate and final test of his life. The Galahad Statue in Ottawa, the National Capital of Canada, was erected by the city’s grateful public in 1905 to commemorate Bert Harper’s bravery.

Although the novel starts slowly and meanders a bit at times, Mayer ably brings the relatively obscure Harper and his world to life.
