What the Dove Foundation said:

“I enjoyed the manuscript. The story portrays the need for Christ in a way that works nicely; it’s not pushed in readers’ faces and yet is unashamedly presented at the same time. You are to be commended for dealing with the race issue and showing how valuable black soldiers were to the war effort. The theme of giving a gift when dealing with fear is excellent. The music box is a nice symbol of this theme. I appreciated the use of humor, too, in what is a grim tale at times. The resolution of your story is powerful. The themes of forgiveness, redemption and the power of love to conquer fear are all amazing. I hope this becomes a movie. This one has earned our ‘Faith-Friendly’ Seal for ages 12 plus, and five Doves – our best rating.”
