“The opening salvos of the American Revolution come to life via this historical novel that follows the impact of the war on one Boston family caught in the maelstrom…the author’s meticulous attention to atmospheric cultural details and descriptions of period weaponry add up to a narrative win. Readers will hope for a sequel. A vivid and entertaining war tale. ” Kirkus Reviews
“The characters are very well-developed, and the settings are vivid and realistic as we follow Josiah for a year of his life. I felt a wrenching disappointment when it ended, and I sincerely hope it is the first in a series. I want to live the next step in Josiah’s story.” Sublime Book Review
“What I loved most about this book is the cohesion brought about by intertextuality. In exploring his themes of love, kinship, marriage and betrayal, Miller used a story within a story and dialogue to advance the storyline.” Online Book Club
“Mark James Miller has done it again! This tale desperately needed to be told, and Mr. Miller nailed it. From the very first page, the very first word, I was captivated… A unique cast of characters makes it difficult to pick a favorite, as they all feel real… The build-up and the action made it impossible to put this page-turner down. I thought about the events long after I closed the book. It was a wonderful reading experience and time well spent. Tracy Ball, author of Civil Warriors
Set against the backdrop of the Revolutionary War, The White Cockade is timeless in its treatment of human emotion and human foibles. While we all know the outcome of the war that is described in vivid detail, Miller’s wonderful and engaging cast of characters keeps us turning the page to find out what they will do and how their lives will be affected by the war…A great read!
