REVIEWS for Fateful Decisions

(Portions of these reviews are on the book cover.)

“From the sinking of the Lusitania by a German G-20 torpedo, the suffrage movement that leads to the women’s right to vote, to the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, FATEFUL DECISIONS is an epic tale spanning from 1915 to 1946. Touching on major themes of love, family, friendship, betrayal, and forgiveness, the author brings history to life and shows how wars and personal decisions can forever change the lives of individual people.  A great read for historical fiction fans who will appreciate the meticulous details of real events.”
