Praise and Reviews
I've just completed "Winters' Wrath"! The characters are so well-drawn...and while I know this is a historical novel and that there has obviously been endless hours of research on the incredible minute facts of this era & the horrific times these forebears fought against, the 'fictitious' characters are SO 'real', I, for one, will keep them in MY memory as people that lived through the experiences of the story. I simply cannot WAIT for Volume 2 of the Palatine Journey!! Kay Redcoff, Sarasota, FL
