America is torn apart by civil war. The United States are anything but as countryman fights countryman. At the center of it all is a battle hardened soldier who is fighting to save his marriage and fighting to save his country......Lincoln must be the president right? This must be set in 1861, right?

Wrong. Northeast Florida writer Sean T. Smith's latest novel, Tears of Abraham, explores America in the not to distant future as it is torn apart by a second Civil War.........

Apocalyptic fiction is one of my absolute favorite genres, and the fact that reviewing Tears of Abraham allows me the chance to feature a local author, is an added bonus. The novel deals with political issues without being heavy handed or biased and the characters in the novel are well-rounded, from a delusional redneck to a struggling black man, to the main characters themselves. One of my favorite chapters is entitled "Semper Fi", which opens with Henry's internal struggle at being caught up in a civil war which pits him against an enemy that he normally would have been fighting with, not against. "Henry Wilkins was willing to give his life for his country, but at the moment, his country seemed intent on killing him. This did not sit well in the jagged corners of his soul, humping through the Canadian Rockies with drones hunting him." .......
