Review by: cdw1953 on May 22, 2018 :
Just finished the 3rd book of the Canawlers series "Lock Ready".I don't normally read family type stories but am an avid reader of historical fiction and wholeheartedly recommend this series for just about anybody who has an interest in either genre.I found to my surprise how much I was drawn to the Fitzgerald family and rooting for them in their trials and tribulations during very difficult times on the Potomac during the Civil War.Kudos to Mr. Rada for his effort in writing about a much overlooked subject.I look forward to reading his "October Morning" about the Flu Epidemic of 1918 very soon.
