Editorial Reviews

Christopher Keane
"When you read a book like this, you know that the writer was personally involved. This is history at its best told by a master storyteller who can not only write the moments but also is able to inject the sweep of that history into every character."

Christopher Keane, author of THE HUNTER and THE MAXIMUS ZONE
Tom Mannewitz
"This book is historically accurate and a great read for those who love to read about the Civil War. Barbara often consulted with me regarding arms and ammunition. Her own research was extraordinary and her resources ranged from post-battle reports to a wall full of the works of the best historical writers. Fear not to invest your time and money in this book. You will be well rewarded. This book is the result of over twenty years of work."

Meet the Author

Barbara M. Lord was born in Boston, Massachusetts. She received her BA from Ohio Wesleyan University with a major in English. She was also a departmental assistant. She started her writing career at TIME/LIFE as a staffer on the publishing side.
Prior to that she spent several years in administrative social work as a Program Director for the YWCA, a USO executive director, an Assistant Director for the American Heart Association, Director for the Retired Senior Volunteer Program, and Director for the Association for Retarded Citizens (ARC). She volunteered as a Big Sister in the Big Brother/Big Sister program and was also a volunteer ski instructor for underprivileged children.
While on leave from LIFE, Barbara worked as a Wyoming hunting camp cook one fall. She had fallen in love with the backcountry and would gladly have traded her job at LIFE for a cabin in the wilderness. Perhaps the most important lessons learned were not to tie the pack mule’s lead rope to your own saddle horn lest you end up in the drink and also not to ride between a mother moose and her calf!
Barbara and her family enjoy their life in Texas where she lives with her husband, two cats, one German Shepherd, and a retired AQHA show horse. Her children live nearby and all gather for family dinners. Her family has always been there to support her writing, and Barbara has always tried to inspire her children to stretch their minds and to reach for the stars. The family home schooled for several years. She would say to her children “If you reach for the stars and happen to land on the moon, what a wonderful adventure that would be!” Even now she inspires her granddaughter to use her imagination and to find a way to put her dreams on paper.
BURY THY BROTHER is Barbara’s first novel, although she has had other pieces published. The next book (AN ANGEL’S QUEST) is nearly finished and can be pre-ordered now. The author dedicated many years to extensive research in order to get both the genealogy and the history of the Civil War correct. The cover picture on the historical novel is her cousin Addison H. Grant who served with the 7th Maine, and whose ghost often visited Barbara begging her to clear his name of the false charge of cowardice. The war tore the family to pieces.

    I love it!!!!

    This book is historically accurate and a great read for those who love to read about the Civil War.

    Excerpt from BURY THY BROTHER:

    It was time. He had to tell her whatever was allowed. If she believed in him enough to spend time trying to find him and clear his name of the false charge of cowardice when so many had failed before her, she would see him. She would hear his voice. He had to try.

    His cousin, now in her sixties, began to weep.

    ¿Why is no one here to pay their respects?¿ she whispered. ¿Where are they?¿

    Sobbing, she headed for the stone steps that led down in layer upon layer, tier upon tier of graves. Embarrassed, she turned her head away from him and passed him, still sitting on the stone steps.

    He could not let this moment pass!

    ¿Cousin,¿ he said rather forcefully. ¿Cousin, don¿t look for me. I¿m not here. Look at the battlefield and the trench. You will feel my spirit there, for I am not here.¿

    His cousin turned to look at the man on the steps.

    ¿Addison? Are you Addison Grant?¿ she said in a trembling voice.

    Addison nodded his head. They were calling him back. He had to go. She was still his last hope.

    ¿Cousin! Clear my name! Please clear my name. Goodbye. Craig Elachie, my cousin, Craig Elachie.¿
