The Best in Florida Historical Fiction

As a native Floridian stretching back many generations, my first love in reading fiction is anything having to do with the state of Florida in her infancy.

Today a new novel has been released that is written by a man who was born and raised in the Florida Everglades and Ten Thousand Islands.

This is an engaging story that is hard to put down. You will be caught up in the intrigue and suspense as a father searches for his son and a wife struggles to survive in the swamps while holding out hope that her husband is out there somewhere.

Don’t miss this candid look at the Florida Everglades at the height of the Depression era!

Kindle version coming soon.

One Response to The Best in Florida Historical Fiction

  1. I think you might also enjoy another new addition to the Florida historical fiction library, “The River Way Home: The Adventures of the Cowboy, the Indian, and the Amazon Queen.

    It’s set between Lake Okeechobee and the Atlantic Ocean in 1914 and tells the tale of three young teens from different cultures, Cracker and Seminole boys and an African-American girl, who lose their boat in a storm on Lake Okeechobee. When the Ashley Gang blocks the way back, they follow the St. Lucie River to the new City of Stuart to see the train in and the Atlantic Ocean and have adventures every step of the way.

    Although its main protagonist is a teenage girl, The River Way Home is a book for readers of all ages. With a section of old photographs and short historical essays that explain the origin of the characters, issues, and events it is full of action, humor, and environmental, cultural, and gender conflicts that remain contemporary today.

    It’s averaging 4.7 star reviews on Amazon and has been in the Amazon Kindle Top 100 in its category for three months, rising to number 15 during July.
