    I have been away for the last few weeks, two and a half weeks I think it is.

    Flames of Time, published in 1948, is a novel set in the East Florida Republic and in the Spanish colony of Florida between 1790 and 1815.

    I like how the author put all effort into learning about the time and place that his story took place in. This is one of my favorite books because of how well it relates to real life for all of us.
