“Marsha Ward’s genius rises to her highest peak in The Zion Trial, with spot-on period terminology and meticulous attention to detail. It pulled me back to that time when my Fourth-Great-grandfather Edson Whipple, and his family converted to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and took that Zion trail, and beyond, all because of their faith in Jesus Christ.”

Debra Erfert, author of Window of Time, Changes of the Heart, It Takes a Sleuth, and Relative Evil

“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.”
