My first major book review hits a home run!

I just got my first major book review for  my novel, Becoming Valley Forge, and I couldn’t have asked for anything more!

Here’s the review from the Midwest Book Review, April 2016, Small Press Watch:   AlthBVF-webough a work of fiction, author Sheilah Vance has included a great deal of historically factual background details in her stirring saga of a novel. Impressively well written from beginning to end, “Becoming Valley Forge” is highly recommended for both community and academic library Historical Fiction collections. For personal reading lists it should be noted that “Becoming Valley Forge” is also available in a Kindle edition ($9.99).

Five years of work on this novel–research and imagining–have paid off.  I couldn’t be happier. I hope you’ll take a look at my book and come to the same conclusion as the Midwest Book Review!  Feel free to email me your thoughts.
