Echoes of Distant Thunder shows us the war in stunning detail through the eyes of a twenty year old farm boy turned artillery soldier. On the bloody fields of Chickamauga Will Castor’s artillery battery is over-run in fierce hand-to-hand combat, every member of his gun crew, including his best friend are killed and his final violent act of compassion will haunt him for the rest of his life. Caught behind enemy lines with a broken leg and unable to walk, he makes a pact with a war weary Confederate deserter and ends up falling in love with his former enemy’s beautiful sister. Historical events firmly anchor the story in place as Will, wounded in body and in mind moves from the battlefield to one crisis after another.
