Random story line shifts, extraordinary detail that contributed nothing to the plot, or to the enjoyment of trying to read and follow the story line. It seems the author is more focused on an attempt to impress the reader with his knowledge of the period than with providing an entertaining novel. I would really like my money back, and the time I wasted reading this.

It took me a while to interpret the writing style, and some of the definitions of words, that were used as words of the times. Some of them even stumped Wikipedia. The trials and tribulations of Jonah Hook were well thought out and certainly caused me to have empathy for the character. I wondered while reading this book how much of the information given about the civil war was factual, and how much was written to enhance the story line. Either way, I need to read the next book to find out how Jonah fares in his search for peace and tranquility.

Not terrible but not as good as it should be. Focus is on the Indian Wars and not the family search.Jonah does many other things rather than concentrating on getting his wife back. I was not aware that there is a second book which is a good thing because this is not a complete bookThe ending which seemed rushed leaves many open issues with Jonah again not having his eye on the ball He. doesn't seem that concerned with what many be happening to his wife during her captivity.

Well written and factual with all the names and places where these battles were fought.Factual bleed into stepsbthat were well written and held the motive as well.

The scope and extent of this tale is wonderful and sets the background necessary to make the story live. Excellent and real characters carry the tale.

I enjoyed this book very much. It is the first of a series of three; I also enjoyed the second book, Winter Rain. However, when I went back to Amazon for the third book, I discovered it was not available in the Kindle format! This makes no sense and I am very disappointed!

It grabbed me from the very beginning and I had a hard time putting it down. The sequel is just as good.
This is a long novel, but that's okay because once your into it you don't want it to end.
