Review



Some Glad Morning has a soul. It positively soars!
 
The vivid detail in painting the life and trials of Ransom MacTavish during WWI left me an emotional wreck. Ransom is a quiet, kind Southern boy that joins the war far too young. The rough yet idealistic life he led up to that point didn't prepare him for the horrors of the war, but with strength and determination, he survives.

Because of the letters.


Everyone needs something to hold on to during times of heartache and sorrow. Ransom finds his tether to sanity tied to the letters. The words entrance him and as he is surrounded by death and destruction, the love that emanates from them keep his mind from breaking.

I cried. I laughed. I felt my own memories of my great-grandfather surface, because only men from that era exhibited the raw strength of character that Ransom does.

Take a step back to a time of real heroes that risked everything for honor and pride.

           --Ashley Fontainne, international bestselling author of Eviscerating the Snake series.

From the Author

Some Glad Morning is a strong love story set in the Old South, but it's not a formula romance. There is no sex or bodice ripping. It's the story of a poor boy way out of his element as he seeks the love a wealthy Charleston lady. The writing has a literary feel and, while there is a strong plot, the characters are fully rendered and infinitely memorable.

We know from the first page of Some Glad Morning that Ransom McTavish is a quiet young man with a gentle heart, but as we follow him to the Great War and back - only to discover he's since lost the little he had in the world - then on the road to find love and fortune, we learn that he's determined and strong, as well. An innocent with the soul of a poet he may be, but he's neither stupid nor lazy, and as he encounters people who both help and hinder him on the difficult road to make his mark, his own generosity of spirit wins him far more friends than enemies.

This book is the kind of "quest" novel one finds most often in fantasy: penniless hero must go on the road to find the grail/princess/magic potion that will save the kingdom. What I loved most about it was that instead of dragons and trolls and evil knights, as he travels the hero of Some Glad Morning is battling chronic human stupidity in the form of racism, violence, poverty, greed, and sheer pig-headedness. But in the end more people are inclined to help Ransom on his journey than not, so while it at no time feels unrealistic and there's still plenty of awfulness to go around, ultimately the theme is one of hope and possibility.

Above all, Horton excels at vivid renderings of place and people. You can feel the icy mud in the trench in France and see the wounded and stunned Ransom struggle to ease the suffering of the men dying around him. You can smell the river and the scents of fish and cornbread cooking out of doors, picture Amelia Rose with her hair loosed and the rope wound around her waist as a belt, taste poor Cecil Owens' salvaged moonshine burning your throat.

This book was passed on to me by the author for an honest review. I am very thankful that Mr. Horton sought out my opinion of his work otherwise I might have missed one of the finest stories I have read in a long time.

I really enjoyed this story. The author takes you along on an exciting journey full of unexpected twists and many interesting characters. Mr. Horton has a gift for detail and gives his characters depth with a vivid description of their environment. He does a great job of transporting the reader into a different time and place. Before long, you're right there with the main character, Ransom, yet rooting for the underdog and love that even a cynic like myself finds believable. This is the kind of book that lingers in your soul.

I am actually stunned at myself by reading and ENJOYING a book that took me onto a battlefield. I was forced to read the Red Badge of Courage in high school. But in reading Some Glad Morning - being taken onto the battlefield... and Horton TAKES YOU ONTO THE BATTLEFIELD - is essential to this incredible story. Do I call it a love story? To me, that limits it... as a movie Some Glad Morning would not be a chick-flick. It is in way gender-specific. Reading Some Glad Morning is so mind grabbing, I don't even know if a movie could capture the pictures Horton's words paint in your mind. Saying I LOVE this book is putting it mildly. It challenges me historically, geographically, and emotionally... "who would I be in this saga? Who are my feelings most partial too?"

Horton is writing is absolutely artistic, his words painting in a way that stimulates ALL of your senses. His characters spring to life from his very first chapter and take a place in your mind and heart. You KNOW THESE PEOPLE... they are not buried on flat pages but take on a flesh and blood role to you. I will be reading more from Mr. Horton.

Some Glad Morning is to be shared and discussed... so that's what I'm doing. Another order will go out today!

I learned of this book when I googled to find writers that are similar to Ron Rash. I was directed to youtube where there is what amounts to a commercial advertising the book. I figured for $2.99 it was worth a shot. To my pleasant surprise this is one fantastic book. Is it like Rash? I don't know and it doesn't matter because this story and writer stand on their own. This is some of the best writing and storytelling I've read in a long, long time. I hope the author is working on something new because I can't wait to read his next book. Do yourself a favor and read this book!
