ASHES TO THE VISTULA

2008 Winner

for Historical Fiction

TESTIMONIAL

In ASHES TO THE VISTULA the first person approach to the novel was so real that
the story could easily be mistaken for a painful memoir.
Perhaps it is an affirmation of the human spirit's ability to empathcize that the novel
was conceived and written by an author with a passion for historical clarity.
A successful writing indeed.

It is my honor and pleasure to recognize
ASHES TO THE VISTULA and Bill Copeland
for his outstanding achievement in Historical Fiction.
