I was reminded of that this past week when my son, Ben, with no prompting from me told me via Skype (yes, we Skype all the time since he lives in Florida and I live twelve hundred miles away in Illinois - and by the way, it's a great way to stay in touch - having your child's face talking to you on your desk is truly amazing) - anyway, he told me he read my latest novel and posted a comment on Amazon.
I'm reprinting it here not only because it's a great way to promote my book but more importantly, I'm thrilled that my son read it from cover to cover and actually liked it enough to say so publicly. So, I'm returning the favor and saying for all the world to hear, "Thank you Ben. I'm so proud to call you my son."

A Unique Novel That Keeps You Turning The Pages!!
by Benjamin Mauch on April 21, 2015
WOW!! What a great read. The beginning leaves you wondering where it is all going as the Author does a good job of developing the characters and their back stories. When the action starts it becomes a page-turner. When the action began I had a physical reaction making my heart beat faster because I did not see it coming. I just picked up a Stephen King novel and it is much more difficult to get into than "The Waterkeeper's Daughter." Read this book and you will be glad you did. The historical aspects are fascinating and worth more investigation. Do not miss this read!!
