I bought a copy of this book from the author at a festival in Southern Indiana. I consider myself very knowledgeable on the subject of Indiana History and was pleased to find it had new insights for me. I especially liked the bibliography and character biographies at the end of the book. These were a great help sorting out the fact from the fiction and pointing me towards more resources. It's a fiction story but eye opening all the same.

My book club selected this title. All of us enjoyed the content and we became more familiar with the early beginnings of our surroundings. I enjoyed the character development and use of historical facts used throughout the book. I would recommend the book be edited. There were multiple punctuation and grammatical errors which disrupted the flow of the read. It was quite choppy. Everyone in the book club had the same problem. Otherwise, it was well worth reading.
