Advance Reviews

The Last Laird of Sapelo, by T. M. Brown, is the story of one man’s tragic death in pursuit of justice, as his way of life, too, dies in the flames of a war that he had tried his damnedest to avert… The Last Laird of Sapelo will fascinate readers interested in the unsung facets of the U.S. Civil War, those looking for a nuanced approach to the origins of the conflict, and anyone interested in the details of military organization—or lack thereof—in 19th-century warfare. Chanticleer Book Reviews. (Visit here to read the complete review.)_

The Last Laird of Sapelo is a heart-wrenching and beautiful story of a man and his family brought to its knees by the Civil War. Life-changing choices must be made and personal integrity brought to bear during the nineteenth century when the South was swept into a brutal and complicated war.” —Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times Best-Selling Author of The Secret Book of Flora Lea 

“A Civil War novel traces a wealthy plantation owner’s fight to protect his family’s lands as the North extends its blockade to Georgia’s outer islands and ports… A well-researched Civil War drama, highly informative about cotton’s importance to both sides.” Kirkus Reviews (Visit here for the entire review.)
