Paperback rights to HALLAM'S WAR sold to Berkley Books

Please forgive me for quoting my own publisher's press release, but here goes: Unbridled Books announces paperback rights for HALLAM'S WAR sold to Sandra Harding at Berkley Books, an imprint of Penguin Group (USA).

Set in West Tennessee during the time leading up to the Civil war and through the first devastating years of its fury, HALLAM'S WAR has been called "powerful", "richly developed", and "remarkable", earning high praise and critical acclaim nationwide.

Harding said of the acquisition, "Berkley Books is thrilled to be publishing the paperback of HALLAM'S WAR. This is a stunning family saga and Elisabeth Payne Rosen is a remarkable writer who uses a keen, generous intelligence to create complicated, sympathetic characters and place them against a meticulously researched, nearly-epic Civil War backdrop. As a book that explores questions about duty, honor, love and race, it is truly a story for our time."
