A Still Small Voice by John Reed
Random House Publishing Group, 2001
Written with a storyteller’s grace and a poet’s touch, John Reed’s powerful first novel is a true adventure of the heart — at once a passionate love story and a sweeping historical saga set against a vivid backdrop of the Civil War…. Against this turbulent backdrop, Alma will come of age. And when the fighting is over, the story of a brave young man riding off to battle becomes a haunting journey of vengeance and redemption. And for Alma, yet another journey begins on the day a tormented young soldier staggers back into her life.
