One Man’s Search for Redemption

Brett Mitchell joined the militia late in 1812, intent on protecting home and family from invaders, knowing the risks: death in battle and infection from wounds. He didn’t count on another threat that came to American shores with the enemy. Something worse than guns, rockets, cannons, and mortars. Something out of his worst childhood nightmares, and even God appears to have abandoned him at his time of greatest need.

This series of short stories follows Brett’s journey through fear, abandonment, and rage to acceptance, purpose, and renewed faith. They are available as a COLLECTION or individually for Kindle. Click on the cover images below if you’re interested in purchasing individual stories.
