Book Recommendation: Shadows of Glory by Owen Parry

 

Shadows of Glory (2000) follows the historical novel Faded Coat of Blue in the historical fiction series featuring Union Army Major Abel Jones by American author Owen Parry, a pseudonym used by Ralph Peters. I have enjoyed these books and recommend them for your reading list.

Goodreads Review of Shadows of Glory

"In a snow-swept Northern town, Union officer Major Abel Jones struggles to solve the riddle of Federal agents tortured to death, an act of stunning brutality cloaked in fear and lies. Confronted with murder and madness, sedition and seances, selfless patriotism and haunting passions, Abel is duty-bound to succeed, even though the ghosts of his own past-when his uniform was scarlet and not blue-are waiting for him. From the dr ma of Civil War Washington and a divided home front, to the hardship and triumph of Grant's capture of Fort Donelson, Shadows of Glory magnificently conjures up an American past -- and brings it to ravishing life with matchless authenticity and storytelling power. "

Seeing the weather on the news I thought of you and hope you are outside of the flooded areas.

Hi Roy Kelley - I have to agree with Wayne Martin - you are a reading machine... I am a little jealous but my reading time goes into home mags and gardening mags. (Not quite the same!)
