Book Review of PATRIOT HEART, Journey Home Series 1

New Horizon Reviews by Michelle, December 2015.

Diane's debut novel

    `Patriot Heart` is book one of the `Journey Home` series by Diane Kalas. This is a fast-moving, historical fiction ebook dated in 1865. It is May 1865, a month after President Lincoln was assassinated. I am expecting a story that leans heavily on the assassination and the end of the Civil War.  I was pleasantly surprised to see the mention of Miss Clara Burton (Civil War nurse). However, the characters or events in this ebook are fictitious. There are a few twists and turns to keep the reader wanting more.

            The overall message of this ebook was inspiring and leaned heavily on strong Christian morals and forgiveness. Because of this, I will look at veterans with more in-depth feelings and knowledge. Any scripture used is either from the NIV or the King James version of the Bible.
           I received this ebook as a pdf file. Reading it on my computer worked well. However, once downloaded to my Kindle there were many places where the type was bold and darkened. I would suggest reading it straight from the computer and not a Kindle as the type does distract from reading.

             I recommend this book to Believers or Seekers of the Way.
