Morgan Mackinnon, a writer with a career in telecommunications that would lead ultimately to the Eastern U.S.; has completed her most recent book “The Better Part of Valor”:  a gripping and potent read that records the life of Myles, a soldier who had fought several wars in history until his death in 1876. But what if his life took a different path?

Morgan writes, “Myles Walter Keogh was born to be a soldier. He had a passion in his blood and a love for the thrill of battle, which led him to fight in the Papal Wars as well as the American Civil War and the Western Indian Wars. Devastatingly handsome, a notorious flirt with the opposite sex, Keogh soon learned that being a military officer extracted a terrible toll on his soul—a void he filled with depression and perhaps more drink than was good for him. History records his death on June 25, 1876, at a place called Little Bighorn, which was in Dakota Territory. But history sometimes makes mistakes, especially if there is a mysterious wrinkle in the fabric of time indicating the Irish soldier of fortune has another path open to him if only he would accept it. He has a chance to forego death, save the United States, and maybe…just maybe, find true love.”

Published by Fulton Books, Morgan Mackinnon’s book is a great novel that accounts one’s journey in and out of the warzones. Moreover, readers will witness in this book how the world for this one soldier could be if he walked the other path and lived a completely different life.

Readers who wish to experience this profound work can purchase “The Better Part of Valor” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
