2014 Reviews for In His Stead

Amazon readers continue to praise Sanders’ novel “In His Stead– A Father’s War” 4.7 out of 5 STARS

Brian says “The book is definitely worth the read. The story, while very real and in a lot of respects, sad works. The author does a great job of capturing the loss and struggle military families face.”

Veritas Vincit “Bill” says “…the powerful story-telling and character development by Sanders is what kept me in… The depth of understanding of the human condition and the bonds of family are as close to perfect as an author can achieve…. [Sanders] is clearly an intelligent, probing, and conscientious researcher.”

lroger says “Sanders’ real voice came through in the narrative that made it so personal and really drew me into the entire novel. Everything is emotionally charged–reminded me of a good Jodie Picoult book… Sanders expertly adds in these details that make it so impactful and realistic.”

John J. Staughton says “Sanders creates a riveting and emotional world that the reader can be sucked into. At times, the book was funny, other times it was heart-wrenching…This was an emotional read, but a good one. A great one, in fact.”

Ripples from In His Stead

Until I received this email, I had no idea how far my words would reach.

Father ImageHere’s what one reader, who has had a son in trouble (fighting his own war against substance abuse), wanted me and you to know:

“When I finished reading In His Stead I knew why I never stop trying to help my son… I laid in bed with tears swelling in my eyes, not because of the struggles of the hero, but because someone out there understands why a loving father will go to such extremes, even when almost everyone else has given up and even severely criticizes him for trying so hard… I have helped my own son even when it nearly killed me to do so… The book showed me that someone else does understand how i feel & what i am going through. There is so much more to the story (than the heroics of Thomas Lane) with the impact being that one person can change the lives of others and even history. I have some relief today that I am not a fool for trying. So thank you from deep inside.”
