From the Back Cover:

New in paper—Killing Cynthia Ann
“Basing his fictional speculation on a careful reading of the historical record, Brashear chronicles the heartbreaking descent into despair of a proud woman who could not forget her warrior husband and two sons. . . [The public] will appreciate this engrossing novel, which can also supply a personal perspective to supplement history texts.” ~Library Journal
Killing Cynthia Ann is a storehouse of period detail of daily life, including food, clothing, housing, and domestic economy, with an interesting emphasis on a woman’s role. Contemporary historical events, such as the frontier consequences of the Civil War, are neatly worked into the narrative.” ~Review of Texas Books
 “One appreciates the fact that Brashear is a conscientious author who is careful of his sources. What he’s done is search out the most authentic records available, then build a novel by filling in imaginary details of emotions, relationships, conversation and background. The  fictional device gives the reader a historical overview of the period, plus a vivid picture of a woman who lived with constant, unhealable heartache.”~Fort Worth Star-Telegram
“The story of Cynthia Ann’s abduction and recapture has been told many times, . . . but this book focuses on her life after her return to Anglo culture. Though presented as a novel, the story is well-researched.” Amarillo Sunday News-Globe
