Patriotic, Christian Fiction

What So Proudly We Hailed
James Howard
CreateSpace (2010),
Paperback, 280 pages
Rated 4 stars of 5 possible

What if... there was a nuclear attack on the United States? What So Proudly We Hailed takes that question and runs with it. The title makes this book seem to be a story about the beginning of the United States, but that's not the case.  It is, in part a story of war, but of more modern times; an alternate reality, if you wish. The characters do exhibit patriotic characteristics though.

The scenario seems plausible and the book is well written. Especially in the last half, the narrative tends to get a bit preachy for my tastes, which explains the one star rating drop.  Still, the story is enjoyable.

Recommended for readers age 16 and up who enjoy reading books which promote a Christian viewpoint. The author has put his characters into some controversial situations, which would make for good group discussion material. 

This book was provided to me free by author in exchange for review. This review has been simultaneously posted on Dragon Views, LibraryThing, Amazon.com and wherever else I may deem appropriate.

Many of the books reviewed here are ones that I have purchased for my own reading pleasure. Some, I receive free in exchange for reviews.  Beginning in December, 2009 you will know which are the free ones if you read the final paragraph of my reviews.

Host Bio
Castle Lake

Well, let's face it folks... Lady Dragoness is a forum addict. She can be found daily at one of her own forums, the one and only Tube Trading Post, and at a friend's forum, YABooks Central, both on Delphi Forums. The Dragoness is also a rookie webmaster and an amateur photographer as well as a wannabe graphic artist whose friends encourage her to continue learning new things as well as expanding her knowledge of things she already knows a little something about.


She likes reading science fiction and fantasy best, but has been known to read most anything she gets her hands ...er... claws... on.  A few of her favorite authors, in no particular order: Anne McCaffrey, Robert Heinlein, Douglas Adams, Gloria Hartman, and Piers Anthony.


How to sum up the Dragoness in a few words?  I am a dragon at heart and by temperment... but I am a friendly dragon.
