Awfully kind praise from novelist and blogger Connie Huddleston:
I needed to read an adult book. I chose a very good one. I found myself “finding” “creating” and “needing” time to read. Being an historian, I have studied The Great War, now called World War I; however, that front line horror of war is hard to tell. Griffis brought the story right to me with words that created characters whom I quickly came to enjoy so much I had to read. Set in a military hospital, very near the front line, The Old World is actually the story of a group of about six characters and their existence, their human drama, during the war. The story delivers fear, horror, love, salvation, humor, friendship, honor, and death all meshed together to create a book, I won’t soon forget. The ending can stand alone or you can proceed right to the next book in the series. I haven’t yet, but will. I need to know what happens next.
