Book of the Week
June 12-16, 2017
Left by the Side of the Road is a collection of short stories about life in South Carolina's Low Country during the Civil War. It is not a continuous novel, or even a novella. There is no single plot or story line. The collection is simply that--a series of glimpses into the past.
What do they have in common? Some of these people have appeared in A Scratch with the Rebels and Beyond All Price. Others made cameo appearances in The Road to Frogmore. All of them are here because, even though their stories were fascinating in their own right, they did not fit into the novels where they first appeared. These are characters and events that were literally "left by the side of the road" as other historical novels took shape. These vignettes allow them to speak for themselves.
Together they provide a multi-faceted glimpse into the stories behind the Civil War.
Meet these real-life people and others "left by the side of the road" while you've been reading our other books.
Carolyn Schriber’s novels have been praised as “the stuff of a great book ... storytelling yes, but also a subtle message that eats at you...and makes you go seek out more information ... and gives you something to talk about over dinner.” (Joyce Faulkner, Past President of the Military Writers Society of America.)
The Kindle edition of Left by the Side of the Road
is FREE all this week (Monday through Friday).
