About the Book
In The Fullness of Time is a new, exciting novel based in historical fiction. I would be happy to send you a copy for review, and can also arrange for book excerpts or interviews with the author about his experience or about the interesting aspects of President Harding’s life that inspired the book.
On Monday, November 25, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was buried in Arlington. During the stillness of this momentous day, Tristan Tecumseh Hamilton begins a long look back at his life and times, and at the life and times of his neighbor and fellow townsman, President Warren G. Harding, who died mysteriously in San Francisco forty years before.
Throughout this final week of November 1963, the assassination and burial of President Kennedy becomes the mirror through which the now aging Tristan views the storied and long-buried past as it rises all around him.
Power and love, ambition and loyalty, war and the devotion to home these universal themes weave through the rich and intricate tapestry of this magisterial American epic that encompasses the world from the vantage of home.
About the Author
Born and raised in Marion, Ohio, in the middle decades of the twentieth century, Vincent Nicolosi grew up in an era when Harding lore, like Indian lore, was still in the air. History and legends lingered on rumors too. These he absorbed from stories told by those who knew and mixed with Warren and Florence Harding, who shook hands with Babe Ruth, dined with Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, exchanged points of view with Henry Ford, and with those who labored to build the town, run the railroads, and construct the steam shovels that dug the Panama Canal.
Nicolosi’s own life has led him to far-flung places including, years ago, the mountains of northern Nicaragua and to John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City, where he has taught for many years and where he currently serves the students as coordinator of the Writing Center.
My Take on the Book
I enjoy historical fiction and the author has definitely provided a good read for anyone who also finds this genre to be engaging.
I found the intertwining of the deaths of Presidents Kennedy and Harding to be fascinating. He tkes the facts and the rumors and weaves them into a tapestry of good fiction. He also shows how these deaths impact the American way of life which for me, was interesting as I did not live through either of these deaths so reading about it (even in fiction) brings these deaths closer to real life for me.
The author does a great job at making the reader think and ponder their own beliefs as well as his style of writing is such that draws you as a reader in and makes you want to continue reading page after page.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in historical fiction in general but also those interested in American History in specific as the facts and myths that the author provides will definitely entrance you!
If this book sounds like something you would like in your own library you can find it on Amazon!
