Descrizione prodotto


In the mountains of East Tennessee, a young man comes of age in the closing months of the Civil War. He struggles with his desire for materialism versus his desire for the blessings and comforts of home and hearth. Unusual circumstances compel him to join the Union army. When the war ends and he returns to his mountain home, everything has changed; and he struggles to find his way in a changed world.

Charles served in the United States Air Force where he developed a love of freedom and country, which is just as strong today as ever. He is a graduate of East Tennessee State University with a BSN in Nursing and Health Sciences. He worked for 30+ years in local emergency medical services. After retirement, he developed an increased interest in writing.

Growing up under the culture and influence of the strong-willed people living in the mountains of East Tennessee has been paramount in his current appreciation for family values and deep sense of patriotism.

Charles is currently active in many civic and volunteer agencies in the local area. He is also an active member of The Gideons International.

I enjoyed this story for it's truth about the language, dialect and reality of eastern Tennessee during the time period portrayed. The message that the storyline carries through the book is especially relevant, even in today's world. Good job, and congratulations to the author!

5.0 su 5 stelle Fascinating story with a powerful message 19 gennaio 2013

This is a captivating book with a powerful message about life and personal values and decisions. A recommended read for young people searching for direction in their lives. The author's grasp of what life was like in the Civil War era in the rural foothills of the Appalacian Mountains makes this ia very interesting and informative read. The book will lead readers of all ages to think about their lives and what should truly be important to them in the larger scheme of things.
3.0 su 5 stelle Terrible ending.... 4 luglio 2015
Di walleyeguy - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Overall, this book is pretty good but just that - pretty good. There are numerous punctuation errors in the narrative. The dialogue of the East TN region is quite accurately depicted which does make for slower reading, even for someone from the East TN region. The story is a good one but tends to drag on far too long. It also seems the latter chapters were hurriedly written so as to just get the book finished. It does accurately depict the hard life of the times which also extended into the early to mid 1900s in the very primitive way that mountain folks lived. Those parts of this book do make for an interesting read but the ending is terrible as there is no real closure. Abruptness is obviously what the author was going for but it just did not work well. Because of all of these things, I have to give it 3 stars at best.
