“The family/interpersonal relationships were my favorite part of GONE FOR A SOLDIER. (Yes, I will forever be a Communications professor!) I loved how the Owen parents sacrificed for their children and how they pulled together in times of difficulty. The pregnancy (and ensuing motherhood) Mary goes through while her husband is away at war was especially touching as she had to reach out to her mother-in-law for assistance. And the love and brotherhood the Owen men had for each other while on the battlefields was heartwarming.”

“Marsha Ward’s latest book, GONE FOR A SOLDIER of The Owen Family Saga series is a well written book of the Civil War era. A story of war, love, and separation of loved ones. Marsha gives a lot of attention to details of the Civil War and it’s a great read. Once you start reading this book it is very hard to put down.”
