PACIFIC BOOK REVIEW Book of the month

Carole Eglash-Kosoff did a remarkable job capturing universal human emotions and frailties; whether it's the loving relationship a mother has with her child that she isn't permitted to know, the wisdom there can be happiness in a forbidden interracial relationship, the pain and blame that haunts a wife when her husband is murdered, or the inability to see others as they really are. This is a sweeping saga of the people of the American South, spanning from antebellum to Civil War to the Reconstruction. The author illustrates the high purposes for which the South fought the war and also demonstrated the utter futility of the Southern position and the senseless nature of most conflicts. This is an incredibly well written book about the death of a civilization and the struggles to survive in the new era. Carole Eglash-Kosoff successfully incorporates the primary thoughts of plantation owners, slaves, and visitors in the South to powerfully illustrate in a straightforward manner what plantation life really felt like. The dialogue is simply smashing. The characters are realistic and resonate on a soulfully deep level. She makes you feel what each character felt, especially the love that Thaddeus and Amy have for one another; a love which could have them killed. The end of the story isn't a traditional happy ending, and you will really feel the strong bond Thaddeus and Amy had for one another. Carole Eglash-Kosoff makes you feel sympathetic to people with totally different values from your own, which is by no means an easy feat. When Stars Align should not be missed, particularly for those who enjoy historical fiction.

Barbara Miller, Authorhouse review


I am emailing to tell you how much I enjoyed your book, Moss Grove (When Stars Align). Somehow the book landed on my desk and I decided it was fate telling me that I should read it. I'm glad I did. The characters were so well developed, the story compelling, and your writing style had me turning page after page. Congratulations on a fabulous book.

WHEN STARS ALIGN is beautiful. I felt like I was right there with the people—the rich characters. I could see them, feel the depths of their feelings and appreciate their circumstances. The story flowed and carried my spirit with it, often shaking me to the core. I loved the narrative and voice of the author. The historical references were educational and put everything into context. Addressing such unfortunate hatred, bigotry and man's inhumanity-to-man is courageous. Balancing those atrocities with stories of kindness, humanity, love, unity, family, cooperation, beauty, and mutual respect is genius. I hope there will be a sequel.
