For instance: ‘she had slipped from his grasp like quick-silver chased across a tabletop.’ Those of us who grew up before knowledge of mercury poisoning know how hard it is to pick up a dollop of quicksilver. It’s a very elusive metal. Here’s another: ‘Only much later did sleep lay a quilt of blackness over his exhausted body.’ And one last one: ‘with the November sun pouting on the breast of a hazy sky.’ Don’t you love it?”

Liz Adair, author of Trouble at the Red Pueblo

“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.”
