Southern Literary Reivew Likes Silent We Stood

A nice review of Silent We Stood in Southern Literary Review. I'm amazed that reviews are still coming out. I'm also amazed that SWS has been out for two years. The review is kind enough that I'll forgive the misspelling of my name.

My thanks to reviewer Donna Meredith! Here's a sample:

"Silent We Stood is no easy read, but it yields the pleasure of unraveling the threads of a complicated yarn. It is a testimony to the universal struggle of humans to find freedom, and the heroism of those who risk everything to ensure that liberty and justice for all is not simply an ideal but a reality."
