A few weeks ago I announced that the fantastic Emily Ann Putzke released her debut book, It Took A War. Today Miss Emily has more exciting news:
It Took A War is available as an audiobook!
I sometimes enjoy listening to books even more than reading them. It is fun to hear someone else reading and interpreting the words. Also, when you are sick, audiobooks allow you to get your reading in even if you don’t have the strength to hold a book in your hands.
My favorite way to enjoy audiobooks is on long road trips. What better way is there to take in the passing scenery than with the company of beautiful words and stories? My family tries to find kid-friendly yet universally interesting books that we can listen to together when we travel
It Took A War will be perfect!
1861 – Sixteen year old Joe Roberts leads a mundane life as far as he’s concerned. His world spins in the same circle each day: working at his family’s store, taking his sisters on boyish escapades and bickering with his rogue of a cousin, Lucas. Joe can’t understand why his mother allows Lucas to live and work with them after all the pain he caused their family. When war is declared, Joe is quick to join up and become a soldier with the 11th Pennsylvania Volunteers, but war is nothing like he imagined. To make matters worse, he must endure having Lucas in the same regiment. Can Joe put the pain of the past behind him? Forgiveness is easier said than done.
Emily Ann Putzke is a 19 year old Christian, homeschool graduate and history lover. Besides writing historical fiction, she enjoys photography (especially photographing her nieces and nephew), reading, spending time with her family, Civil War reenacting, traveling and a good cup of coffee. She resides in New York State where she drinks in the beautiful autumns and tries to endure the long winters.
