Badurday- April 20, 2012- Harrison Ford

I got a review this week on one of my books that came out about six months ago and it was a superb 4 star review. I was excited to see it and the reviewer totally “got” my characters. The hero in the story The Gambler’s Brother was inspired by Harrison Ford in two movies of his that I love, Hanover Street and Force Ten From Navarone. In both those movies and especially Hanover Street, he plays a cocky, straight-shooting military officer in WWII. My Beaumont McSwain in my story was also a cocky American pilot until a mission went awry. The novel is partially his journey back to being whole and accepting what has happened to him. Here’s the ad for Hanover Street from when it was in theatres.

Here’s the link to the review of The Gambler’s Brother review.

Snapdragon was the reviewer and I think some of my favorite parts of her review were as follows:

“Wrought with very human emotion, The Gambler’s Brother will not fail to move you.

We find ourselves aboard the Queen Mary, here at the end of the war (1946). Bo Mcswain is endearing from the get go, and we readers are just like all those war brides he mentions, lured in with the promise of this novel, if not actual chocolate bars and nylon hose.”

The Gambler’s Brother is set during a specific, and relatively little-known period of time, (and little known event) following the war. The storyline is very fresh. Fans of WWII-era fiction will certainly enjoy.”
