    I finished the book yesterday and send my Amazon review in 5 Stars for sure. I love how you move between decades, bring in contemporary issues that have seeds out of the past, build suspense and make me care about things like flour mills. You are terrific! I read it on line but the book is arriving tomorrow. I have people to give it to! Thanks for sharing your creativity!
