Review by: David Segel on Nov. 18, 2013 :
Great novel. A different approach to old west shoot-em up, high noon type action we usually get with a western themed piece. This novels centers more on the emotional and relationship aspect of the characters as they strive to cope with the aftermath of a trying war. The characters are believable and relateable. The action, while not over the top graphic, is well paced throughout the book, leaving more implied violence rather than an over abundance of blood and guts.
This was a well written book, well worth the time it takes to read a 130K plus word work.

A well done period piece. Good character development, a believable plot and good use of setting and historical time frame. Some of the dialogue was a little too "Texan" for my taste, but it did lend credence to the characters, I suppose. I didn't see the editing problems mentioned in other reviews, so I'm guessing the "Texas draw", threw them a little too.
All in all a good, entertaining read worth the time to spend reading 140,000 plus words. I read it in one sitting.

A compelling story for sure. Rich characters, good plot, just a very good read overall. I found no issue with the "folksy" dialogue. I found it made the story more believable.

I'll be reading more from this author. Great job!

Review by: Randall James on June 02, 2013 :
This was a great story. Believable characters, a great plot, and enough action to keep the story moving. The author used local dialect in his dialogue, which, in my opinion, adds authenticity to the work.

Over all, a great read. I look forward to other books by this author.

As an avid Western reader, I must say this in all honesty.

Good job! Other than a couple very minor punctuation errors, I didn't see the editing errors that others have mentioned, and that the Author obviously is concerned about. I agree with the Author, what most people are seeing as errors, is only how people talk in Texas and most of the West. How else can you spell with a drawl?

Great story, exciting, easy to follow with enough twists to keep the reader on their toes.

This is the first of many books by this Author that I intend to read.

Review by: Pat Gibney on Jan. 26, 2013 :
Like other reviews, agree about the excellent story. But entire book should have been proof read before printing. Too many errors/misspells, IMO. Other than that, story was grabbing as it gets and held interest to the end.

Review by: Doris Holmes on Jan. 20, 2013 :
This is as real as it gets, not some prettied up story to make you feel good. The characters were true to life as well as the situations that evolved. It is an excellently told story, it was hard to put the book down. The only criticism I would have is that it needs a good editor, other than that it is a great read...and free on top of all that.
