I am really happy to read the recent review of Windmill Point at the Historical Novel Society -- where it is also listed as an Editors' Choice Review, giving it a little extra support. From the review:
"The grit, tragedy and bold strategy of the American Civil War play out in Jim Stempel’s Windmill Point. Am I glad I read it? You bet. Stempel’s writing is vivid and meticulous. He tells the story of the pivotal events that took place in little more than two weeks in such a compelling fashion that even knowing what happens, you still feel the inexorable pull of tension. At the time of Cold Harbor – June 1864 – the outcome of the war is uncertain."
