I hesitated to include it because it feels like too wild of a coincidence. However some historical context is important. At the time there were no gates around the White House and no real security. Any person could enter the house and meet the President, although you might have a long wait. The President mingled regularly with the population, taking walks and rides with perhaps one escort or no escort. All of that changed after Lincoln was assassinated. So I don’t have additional verification beyond the obituary but I didn’t make this story up and it is certainly quite possible it happened. I hope that helps! (less)

IT IS WELL Editing

I'm in the midst of editing my next title, IT IS WELL. This book is set during World War II in Snohomish, Washington and overseas on Wake Island and France. The title explores a man's tested faith and also domestic violence in the 1940's. I'm excited to work toward the finished product!

Task Force Baum by James D. Shipman
"I received this Advanced Reader Copy via a goodreads giveaway. It is listed as fiction; but, it seems pretty close to everything you can find (at least) online. I think it should have based on a true event of WWII on the cover. (From history onlin..." Read more of this review »

I really enjoyed this book at the beginning. There was a lot of back and forth that I got tired of. Overall an interesting read, not something I would ever pick up. Glad I won it. There were several grammatic..." Read more of this review »

I thoroughly enjoyed this! One of the best novels I have ever read. This is as close to narrative non fiction as a novel can go. Great job!

“The saw made a wet, ripping sound as it tore through flesh and bone. The wounded man jerked upward, his torso coming off the table. “Damn it! Hold him!” “I’m trying,” responded Rebecca.”

“Hundreds of thousands of men had died in this war already.”
James D. Shipman, Going Home

“Nurse Rebecca Walker held the wounded Union soldier by both shoulders, pressing with all her weight to keep him from jerking off the table. The man stared up at her with wild terror, biting down hard on a dirty cloth. Doctor Thomas Johnston stood at the lower”
