Magnificent beyond measure!
on November 28, 2015
Noble Cause is magnificent beyond measure, an epic story that reaches out to seize your heart and soul with a power that takes your breath away. It transports you to a place beyond time and distance, another life just beyond the edge of memory but more vividly real than any dream. I laughed, I wept, I felt alive, and I understood much - about honor, duty, sacrifice, freedom, conviction, truth, belief, pride, trust, loyalty. And through it all the anguish and hope of love unending. I am reminded of a phrase from Dante's Paradiso: "But at last my will and my desire, like a wheel moving evenly, were revolving from the love that moves the sun and all the other stars." It is a journey from darkness into light, from confusion to understanding, for the reader as well as the characters. I am forever changed; I cannot view the Civil War and the souls of those men and women who fought and struggled in the same way ever again.
This is truly an exceptional story. Buy it - I don't believe you'll be disappointed. I have been an Amazon frequent buyer for years, and I have been so moved by this book as to write my first review. Oh, and yes ... I'm planning a trip to northern Virginia to walk the battlefields, the towns, the hills and valleys to pay my respects. It's time.
