About the Author-

Graham Garrison has published articles in a number of newspapers and magazines and is the author of Hero’s Tribute.

My thoughts-  It seems to be difficult to find books these days that will appeal to men yet can also teach a positive lesson.  This book does just that.  My husband, who doesn’t read very often started the book soon after he opened the package.  Now I need to get it back to him so he can finish it.  And I know he will be as surprised as I was by the ending. 

Wes was a complex character who set against a simple yet complex background of Civil War Battlefields.  I felt that Wes was like many of us with our insecurities and inability to trust, but he also has a lot of bitterness and hatred towards his parents, that many of us may not.  His girlfriend, Emmy, was a positive in his life, and I thought she was great.  She is like many women and she wants to do what she can to help Wes, but she also has her own insecurities. 

I would recommend this book to men specifically, because it is about relationships between father and son, man and woman, and man and God.  Women will enjoy it as well, but they may not benefit from it as well as men will.
