Attention historical fiction fans--here's another fine entry by award-winning Johnny D. Boggs that you'll want to add to your collection. "My ancestors fought on both sides of the Civil War, a fact my deeply Southern relatives never bragged about when I was a kid," Johnny D. Boggs writes of his new historical Western. "Maybe that's why I started out with the idea of writing a novel told from Northern and Southern viewpoints about the Battle of Shiloh, which, of course, is no stranger to novelists. Yet when a research trip brought me to Corinth, Mississippi, I decided to include the Second Corinth battle in this narrative, as well. Shiloh is Shiloh, with countless historians analyzing it, while Corinth is often overlooked. Corinth also was a direct contrast to Shiloh; Shiloh was fought in fields and woods, while Corinth took place in a town." So this story follows the fortunes of Caleb Cole, of the 18th Missouri, and Ryan McCalla, of the 2nd Texas Infantry, to their first encounter at the Battle of Shiloh, and tells of Grace Dehner, who comes to know both of these protagonists involved in the Battles of Corinth.
