THE ROADS OF WAR: A Story of Resilience

John B. Cameron Discusses Surviving Battle in All Senses of the Word
NORFOLK, Va. - May 9, 2022 - PRLog -- Historian John Cameron expertly crafts a Civil War tale with his novel The Roads of War (TouchPoint Press, April 26, 2022). In 1862, Lewis McCormack returns to his regiment and finds himself entrenched in the dangers and destruction of battle while another war—one of poverty and hopelessness—wages on back home with his wife Eliza and their children.

Cameron leads us through the ravages of war with authentic battles and the rawness of what it's like to be witness to a multitude of chaos and death. In depicting Lewis' struggle to not only stay alive but to stay true to his humanity, Cameron reminds us that that the effects of war fail to cease when—and if—a soldier reaches home.

During the Civil War, Lewis McCormack has to return to his regiment's training camp, leaving his wife Eliza to tend to their homestead. Rearing children, surviving a declining economy, and paying the family debts leads to intolerable hurdles. Amid the chaos of war, Lewis just wants to stay alive—to make it back home.

Meanwhile, Private Davey Morris is detailed as courier and travels through war-torn Pennsylvania to complete his mission, while Private Tandy Strider uses his thirty-day wounded furlough to search for the young prostitute that he has deemed his soulmate.

The Roads of War exposes the authenticity of battle—the hardships, struggles, and yearning for tranquility. Cameron weaves a true-to-life quilt of human emotion, universal tribulation—and the power of love.

Copies of The Roads of War (published April 26, 2022) are available through major book retailers in eBook ($4.99), paperback ($16.99). Wholesale from Ingram and TouchPoint Press.
