From a Navy MA:
Immediately, I started reading your book and have read the first four chapters already! I love the American Civil War and especially Mr. Lincoln which your book has so far introduced to the reader. I have read several ‘historical fiction’ books and each one has intrigued me to reach out for more readings. Today, I can’t wait until my duty day with the US Navy is over so that I can get back to your book. The heat, sand, dust and stress being away from home is tremendous, and I continually thank supporters like you, sir, of our military people.
It’s a welcome relief that I can ‘dive back’ into your book and be safe from our dangerous environment over here in the Middle East.
We corresponded, and I received this nice reply:
Last night, I finished your book and really enjoyed it.
