1.REVIEW By Jamie Polychrones JAMES M. BECHER has an uncanny way of mixing history with fiction in The Christmas Victory. He takes famous individuals from the past and expands on some the actual events that occurred in their lives with fictional suppositions. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Mark Twain are major contributors to American literature. But their personal lives remain hidden in the past. This historical fiction novel expertly weaves two genres together to create a tale that’s entirely possible. No one will ever know the true beliefs of these two men, but readers will enjoy James’ speculation about their everyday lives. With a spiritual slant, this book will enlighten and inspire readers and fellow writers to examine their own lives and contribution to history. Tragedy defines their future in this novel, as it does for many people. ------------------------------------------------> 2.Machelle Miller's review (Goodreads) First of all, let me say that this is a must read!! The story line is mixed with just the right amount of historical information, which makes the book both a learning tool as well as a heart-warming experience. The sermon itself is one that I will always remember, and leaves no doubt that it can change lives. I loved the poem that eventually became the Christmas Carol "I Heard the Bells On Christmas Day." When I heard vs. 4 it brought tears to my eyes, because for the first time I realize what the original context might have been. Thank you to James Becher for my signed advance copy, and the privilege of writing this review. ------------------------------------------------> You can purchase the print version directly from the publisher HERE OR from Amazon HERE OR you can get the eBook directly from the publisher HERE
