While many believe the sinking of the TITANIC was the worst Maritime disaster in our nations history. It wasn't. On the night of April 27th 1865 the steamship SULTANA exploded on the Mississippi River with nearly 2000 war-weary Union soldiers aboard.

    The author cleverly uses familiar historical names, places and events as the umbrella for a fresh new story about unexpected friendship, love, duty and doing the right thing regardless of the cost. It is well paced, easy to read and has plenty of action...all with a moving, ironic twist. Highly recommend it to anyone who just likes a good, pure, solid story.

    I really enjoyed this read. I spent the majority of 3 days doing nothing but reading. An amazing story! It kept me in suspense, wondering, What is going to happen next? I will recommend this book to everyone!!

I was fully prepared to open the package and set the book on top of my small to-be-read pile, next to my bed. I opened the book to read the inscription, found myself perusing the next few pages and before I knew it I was quite firmly ensconced in the fourth chapter with no thoughts of stopping soon! The author knows his craft quite well and cleverly uses it to spring surprises at several points during the story. Jesse and Cyrus are both intelligent, resourceful and quick-witted protagonists and I enjoyed them thoroughly. How they met and became friends is quite an adventure. I celebrated their victories, took pride in their heroism and great sorrow in their suffering - especially knowing this book is based on true events. It is difficult for me to comprehend the atrocities humans can inflict on one another strictly in the name of war - any war, but that is a discussion for another day. It would have been fun to have seen more interaction between Jesse and Sarah, as we didn't get to see her character as much as I would have liked. Same with the slaves at the Parsons' Plantation, Ina-Mae and Moses in particular. This was a nice, easy read. Everything flowed well, and by the end all the "i's are dotted and the t's are crossed". I would highly recommend it, for adults and even middle and high school students. It's an excellent look at one small piece of the Civil War, from the perspective of a Union solder in the 3rd Regiment, United States Tennessee Cavalry and a slave earning his freedom in the One Hundred Tenth United States Colored Infantry Regiment. Definitely 5 out of 5 stars. I eagerly look forward to more like this from Mr. Bookout.

    This was a GoodReads giveaway. Unfortunately, I just finished Hell or Richmond this morning, so it really pales in comparison. To be fair, I should have waited a month or so, befroe picking up this story. It was a very light read. Don't get me wrong. I liked the story, for a simple piece of fiction, based upon some true events. It just fell short of being a memorable tale. I would still recommend it to the right person. I felt it was written for a much younger audience. The story just seemed a li This was a GoodReads giveaway.
