Moving and morbid, Gabriel Gadfly's debut work "Bone Fragments" captures the essence of war over the last century and a half. With an array of characters, Gadfly leave the reader breathless and captivated, marching with rebel soldiers across a cold Virginia battlefield and burrowed down in a French foxhole to experiencing a child's ignorant horror at Hiroshima. But most importantly, we see war through the eyes of not only the soldiers in the air and on the ground, but through the lens of their wives, daughters, husbands and mothers, their yearning for closeness whispers from each page.
For history nuts, war enthusiasts looking for a fictional change of pace and poetry lovers everywhere, Bone Fragments will capture you and leave you MIA until its completion.
