I thoroughly enjoyed this book and could relate to the people because it involved my ancestors.
Thank you Lloyd for bringing these terrible times to life so we all can understand what our relatives endured.

A Rock for Ambrose is a terrific historical novel. The author tells the story of his great-great grandfather who was a soldier in the Confederate army. It is a heartbreaking and riveting tale, and you come away with a greater knowledge of the life of a common soldier who battled much more than the soldiers on the other side.
