Product Description

1866
All across the country men are drifting home from the war. But when Tom Tanner musters out, he doesn’t plan to go home. He has been working in the brickyard in Springfield trying to save enough money to buy a rig and head west. He’s not expecting his father to show up and plead with him to return to the farm. After the horrible loss of his older brother, Tom doesn’t feel worthy of the family’s company. But his guilt won’t allow him to cause them more pain and so he goes home for one last visit. It’s hard to find normal around the folks. The work of harvest provides the perfect distraction. Once the crops are in he’ll go so far away they’ll never have to look at him again. But his plans are challenged one day. Tom is working in the field when the neighbor boy, Johnny, comes running for help. What Tom finds at the neighbor’s home is a scene right out of the war. But it’s not just about killing. The Missus Addie Varn, is ready to birth. Tom wants to run, and he will come fall, but now he must roll up his sleeves and play midwife.

About the Author

Living comfortably in the heart of America with the people I love. I live an extroverted life, but I'm a genuine introvert. An urban kid, I spent much of my youth running in various neighborhood establishments. There I met many colorful characters and I learned to love them and be fascinated by them. My love of story comes from them. I learned to sit on a bar stool or a kitchen chair or in a pew and hear story. Hear the voices telling story. See the mouths move and the hands clutching glasses or cigarettes. See and hear the laughter. There is no greater honor than to hear someone's story. If you feel that way about the tales I tell...what more could I ask.

HASH(0xa310b708) out of 5 stars So wrapped up in this! July 5 2015

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is my favorite Diane Munier novel by far. Even though I love her others and her style of writing, this book has my heart. Tom has been through so much and has so much pain and anger inside of him and Addie is the only soothing balm for him. Yet he keeps pushing her away! I want to kick his ass so bad! Lol he does finally wake up and the story that Diane tells to get there is amazing! Don't miss this one!!

HASH(0xa310b954) out of 5 stars The Odyssey of Tom Tanner -- July 4 2015
By Vagabonda Reads - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
People read books for many reasons — to learn, to be entertained, to find comfort, to find one’s self, to escape. It is rare that one comes across a book that satisfies so many aspects of reading, but when that book is found, it is to be treasured, to be cherished. Such is the case with master storyteller Diane Munier’s epic work, My Wounded Solder: Part One: Fight for Glory.

The first in a two part series, My Wounded Soldier: Part One: Fight for Glory is set in the American Midwest, just after the end of the Civi War. A bloodied nation begins to mend, its citizens — soldiers and civilians alike — weary, wounded, if not by bullets then by sorrow. It is against this backdrop that we meet Tom Tanner - an ex-soldier, back to working his family’s farm, wounded in spirit, haunted by his actions on the battlefield, a hero to all but himself. One morning, he hears the panicked call for help by a young boy at a neighboring farm. And upon answering that call, Tom finds another bloodied battlefield, the only survivors the young boy and his now-widowed mother, Addie Varn. And it is here that Tom begins his journey of love, self-discovery, confession and redemption.

Written in a prose that is at times breathtaking, Diane Munier takes us into the heart and mind of Tom, struggling with his inner demons as he heads out to reclaim his life, spurred on by his steadfast love for Addie. In a time when adventure could be found around the next bend, and all a man required was a good horse and a steady aim, Munier keeps the action at an even, but rapid pace, reminiscent of a Larry McMurtry novel. Tanner’s voice is authentic, clear, purposeful — never wavering as he awakens from the numbness of his soul:

“I realized something, and it was a hard thing, but true all the same. It’s going against my own code made me sick. More than anything I went through in the war, or even today. It’s going against my own code made me sickest of all. I was here to lead and protect, I’d always known it. And when I could not...well I wasn’t God, was I? I had to let myself by. I had to let myself live.”

My Wounded Soldier: Part One: Fight for Glory, page 195 (ARC)
Her settings, ancillary characters, are all believable. And through the words and actions of all of these characters, Munier, once again, reveals to her readers the paths to redemption, the necessity of surrender and the power of love.

The only issue this reader found with this book was its seemingly abrupt ending. It’s not a cliffhanger — there is resolution and one could say that it stands on its own — after all, Tom Tanner is not the sort of character who would shake a handful of clay to the heavens, vowing never to be hungry again. You decide.

I was gifted this ARC by the author for an honest review.

HASH(0xa310bb94) out of 5 stars Adventure/Romance July 5 2015
By dpennell007 - Published on Amazon.com

Drawn in from the first chapter, it was easy to see that this would be an adventure filled story, and I couldn't wait to be along for the ride. I fell in love with the long suffering Tom Tanner - wearing his heart on his sleeve for everyone else to see but him. This little snippet of him feeling ignored cracked me up. "Well I was right here, wasn't I? Faithful and true like always, burying the dead, delivering the children, drying the tears. So where did she think I was?" His Addie seemed fragile - however she proves to be anything but that as their relationship develops. Very enjoyable from start to finish.

I'm looking forward to reading Part 2 next month.
