Trapped in what appears to be an endless bloodbath—vividly presented with Heffernan’s meticulous historical research—three boys gradually begin to change until their close-knit childhood ties are little more than a fractured memory. By war’s end, one boy is dead, one returns a physically crippled and emotionally compromised man, and the third comes home as an unfeeling psychopath. The novel turns on the subsequent murder of the psychopath and the offer of redemption for the wounded young man who must investigate the crime.

When Johnny Came Marching Home is a story about war and how it affects the lives of all who become a part of it, both directly and peripherally.

    " Historical fiction murder mystery. A nice change from the usual whodunit. "

    " I picked up this book based on the subject matter at the local library and finished it in 3 days because it was that interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandon | 1/2/2013

    " This book was fantastic. It floats between three periods in the characters' lives: childhood, war time, and post war. The story revolves around a murder investigation, but it is more greatly about war and its impact on soldiers and their families and friends. I whole-heartedly recommend this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 11/11/2012

    " I thought this was a wonderful book. The author switched back and forth from events in the past to events in the present. I finished in 2 days and couldn't put it down. It was part mystery (both present and past events) and historical fiction. I will be looking for other books by this author. "
