Praise for Dunaway's Crossing, finalist for Georgia Author of the Year Award, 2013:Ann Hite, author of The Storycatcher and judge for GAYA award:
Ms. Brandon captured my history-loving heart with
set in south Georgia in 1918. The novel
tackles domestic violence in the first chapter and brings women's rights to the forefront with a dead-on vision through
her characters Bea Dot and Netta. [The novel weaves] panic, tragedy, and everyday life as the Spanish Influenza wreaks
havoc in Pineview, Georgia. Brandon joins only a few of her contemporaries
to approach this part of history with courage, compassion, and reality.
Lisbeth Thom, author of Row Away from the Rocks:
Brandon] does an excellent job of putting her reader on the scene...and
she adds a mountain of conflict, suspense, and a touching love story."Rita Herron, bestselling author of Sleepless in Savannah and other novels:

"I quickly became enamored with the characters...The facts were accurately depicted...I'll be looking for more from this author!"
