Description of this Book

When the Lusitania is torpedoed and sunk, taking with it his beloved aunt, Beverly Bethany Quinn, Ansel Quinn finds he is the last of his family line. Her diary, coupled with Europe on the brink of WWI, sets off a chain of events, sending Ansel on an epic quest for honor and self. Wilson had vowed to keep America out of another war. Ansel had sworn to serve his country. Fate's cards trumped them all. From rural Mississippi to the trenches of Verdun, no one is who they say they are, nor will anything ever be the same again.
