I could not have enjoyed this book more. It’s fairly easy to find a book that covers a particular battle, time period or individual. Rarely can you find a story about one ship, and it’s journey from shipyard to final victory in the Pacific. I felt like I was on the ship with the sailors. I received (or in some cases did not receive) news, updates and information just as they would have. I was disappointed when shore leave was postponed or canceled. Or when someone missed a promotion. The writing is superb. Well researched, perfectly paced and with the right amount of detail.
I highly recommend to any fans of WWII, naval history or great stories about the greatest generation.
I had the pleasure of reading an advanced copy of Jeff’s debut novel. It has everything a fan of historical fiction would want. The incredibly accurate setting, action-packed battle scenes, and strong, believable characters. It was refreshing to see the “barbarian” side of history, as so much is written from the Roman point of view.
I think you should check it out!
Colonial history and witchcraft, what’s not to like?
I really enjoyed this book. It was well researched and engaging. As a history nut, I relished in the details of day-to-day life in colonial New England. Being from that area originally made it even more appealing. It was very interesting to read the story, then see how members of the town corrupted the daily events into a frenzy of witchcraft. Be careful what you say to your neighbors!
I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys history or the allure and mystery around witchcraft.
