Title: To Give the Devil HIs Due Reviewer: Tracy Signed

This story gave me "the feels", as my daughters say. I can't imagine the horrors of war, but I can imagine that finding your place afterward must be difficult, if even possible. I think many soldiers who fought against their own, other Americans, sometimes neighbors, never did find a post-war-normal. 

I followed this as a WIP, and I was drawn into every chapter. Reading it as a whole here in the library, I must say I noticed so many nuances I'd missed before.

I recommend this story, highly. Don't be afraid of it because of the subject matter - it is not a "war story", but rather, a healing one.

Author's Response:

Thank you, Tracy, for recommending this story and your classifcation of it is spot-on. It's not a war story but it is a story, as you pointed out, of someone finding their place in society and in their family again after the Civil War. I appreciate that you left your thoughts here.

I read this story on another website and reviewed it there, but I have to add one here, too. I loved the way you showed Adam as a good but flawed man. So often he's made out to be noble and perfect. Here we see him warts and all. I also like the women characters you created, and I'd have liked to know what happened to them when the story ended. 

Author's Response:

I am so glad you wanted to leave a review here. As for Adam, I like to push his character and see what happens--he is good and he is flawed like all of us. As for my female OC's, I tried to write three very different women and hope I succeeded. Thank you, Pt29646.
