AND UNION NO MORE
Thank you for visiting my website. I am pleased to announce that my second book of historical fiction, And Union No More, will be released in April 2023.
Set in the Kansas Territory in the 1850s, it concerns the battles over whether Kansas would enter the Union as a free state, or an enslaved state. Fictional characters interact with historical figures as issues of slavery, abolition, morality, and violence of Americans against Americans, are explored.
The early reviews are in and all agree– And Union No More is a must-read for history lovers:
“Haynes uses a turning point in the evolution of America as the template for this thrilling adventure . . . And Union No More is a story without comparison in its genre.”– Readers’ Favorite (5-star review)
“The characters Haynes introduces, along with the historical figures, are immersed in a death struggle for the soul of the nation . . . Historical fiction fans will likely find much to enjoy in this novel that explores events that will eventually lead to one of the most devastating chapters in the nation’s history.”– US Review of Books (Recommended review)
