This was a really good read with several love stories going on at the same time. Yet it isn't a romance. Interwoven with the love are several tragedies and crimes. The writng is almost poetic. It takes place in Gettysburg Pennsylvania and I am going to try to get someone in that area to read and wild relelase it for me.

Received this in the mail today, for release in Gettysburg. I'd like to read this before release, but I'll release it by spring at the latest (depending on the weather).

Wonderful, unforgettable tale. Duty and honor, love and loss. You really get to know and care about these characters. The only problem I had with this story, was the dual narrators were a bit hard to follow, but I really enjoyed this story with its local setting.

Looking forward to releasing this in the spring, on a nice, warm day (as opposed to the frigid cold and snowy weather I read this in). Not sure exactly where I'll release it yet, but I've got a few ideas...

Many thanks to Thnxandyc, for sharing.

Journal Entry 5 by Mookie522 from Macungie, Pennsylvania USA on Sunday, June 26, 2005
On a beautiful spring Sunday, my husband, son and I decided to take a 3 hour day trip to Gettysburg, PA. As we walked around town, I noticed the book sitting on a bench, under a tree, in a small corner of the town of Gettysburg, PA. Being an avid reader, and loving anything on the Civil War, I decided to take a moment and see what "I'm Free! I'm not lost!" was all about. I must admit, I did look around at the people just standing around, wondering if this was a joke someone was videotaping. But, I kept reading about Book Crossings and decided it would be fun. So I warily took the book, still thinking someone was going to come up and talk to me about stealing their book. But, that wasn't the case and I made it to my car with the book in hand. We then drove to Devil's Den, an area of Gettysburg with rocks, a creek and trails to explore. As my husband and son went exploring, I took advantage of the sunshine and warmth and sat on a rock and started reading. I enjoyed it immediately and continued to read in the car on the ride home. I finished the book in just days, but it's taken me months to come to the website to register my thoughts. Sorry MaryZee. I'm hoping to release the book in our local flower park, where many folks stop to watch the trains, take wedding photos or just relax. It's definitely a book to share and I'm anxious to see where it goes from here.
