... a beautifully written historic romance, and I recommend it highly. Find a warm spot by the fire on a snowy day, and curl up with this incredible epic. I'm going to go have a second read."



Excerpts of Other Incoming Reviews for
Here is a glimpse...
"This story was engaging, well written and entertaining.  The author's extensive research into the war between North and South shone through the entire story. The characters, particularly Aimée and Lulu, were presented by the author as complete individuals, each with their own unique traits to distinguish them from others. The inspirational aspects were not overdone, but instead were threaded seamlessly throughout the story as it unfolded. Lulu was a wonderful character in her assisting role to Aimée."

"Flame From Within is a stirring poignant read. One cannot help but be swept into the historical events of the Civil War, and the aftermaths each family shares... Shirley Kiger Connolly pens a great historical read, depicting many ranges of emotions within her characters. This well-written drama shows the betrayal and hatred that sweeps during the war, as well as the solace each injured soul, in time, is able to find when learning to love and live once more. I was truly captivated with this story, and my heart went out to all the characters."
