About Mary C. Findley

I grew up in rural NY and Michael is a "city boy" from AZ. We met at college, taught school in AZ, MO and PA, homeschooled, and created curriculum and videos for church and commercial productions. We have three 20-something children, and now travel the 48 states together in a tractor trailer.

This is the first book I have read from Mary Findley and must say it was an interesting read. Her use of the southern dialogue in her story depicting times from the civil war where to me spot on. Being born and bred in the south where we pretty much destroy the English language it made me feel more at home to me. I was not offended in any way buy the grammar used for the characters in the south. The story held my interest more and more as I continued reading. I think she was trying to make a point with the main character being deaf and I liked the hand symbols between the scenes. ”Nice touch” The only thing I didn’t like about the story that it is not finished. I was just getting to the good stuff when the book ended. So maybe this is a work in progress? In any event I did like the characters and the plot line as I read. I hope she gets this story finished so I can find out what happens next. One last note, the editing and formatting for this story was also great and it was easy to read do to this. So inclosing even though the book is not finished, I would still give it 5 stars and ask Mary to finish it when she gets time to do so.
