My Lady Zane

"My Lady Zane" by Steven M. Sullivan

| Author | Facebook | Instagram | Inspired by true events in our American history! A story about an amazing female war hero.  "A love story unfolds through letters sent to a female Marine on tour, circa 2003 in Iraq. Through her grandmother's letters, the Marine Sergeant learns of her relative Betty Zane, who was brave, passionate and daring enough to go up against the British and the Indians to save her country and the man she loves. Reviews: "I loved it!" I’ve never been one to critique a book, pull it apart or say how it could be better. When reading a book I either love it or it goes unfinished. I loved it! I loved how the story of the past was relived through a series of letters from the present. So much so... it’s inspired me to look more into the history of the Siege of Fort Henry. I also want to thank Steve for taking the time to answer my curiosity questions while still in the first few chapters of the book.~ Cheryl "Surprisingly well written, beautiful, harrowing story" Beautifully written and, though it is fiction, it’s well researched and feels so true. The back story of the author and his family tree come alive in this generational page turner. It honors the women we so often forget. I found it to be an easy, fun read with all the emotion you hope to find in a good novel. I look forward to this author’s next book. Highly recommended.~ Kepela

American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America

• A New Republic Best Book of the Year • The Globalist Top Books of the Year • Winner of the Maine Literary Award for Non-fiction •

Particularly relevant in understanding who voted for who in this presidential election year, this is an endlessly fascinating look at American regionalism and the eleven “nations” that continue to shape North America

According to award-winning journalist and historian Colin Woodard, North America is made up of eleven distinct nations, each with its own unique historical roots. In American Nations he takes readers on a journey through the history of our fractured continent, offering a revolutionary and revelatory take on American identity, and how the conflicts between them have shaped our past and continue to mold our future. From the Deep South to the Far West, to Yankeedom to El Norte, Woodard (author of American Character: A History of the Epic Struggle Between Individual Liberty and the Common Good) reveals how each region continues to uphold its distinguishing ideals and identities today, with results that can be seen in the composition of the U.S. Congress or on the county-by-county election maps of this year's Trump versus Clinton presidential election.
