"Reading Rosanna's Reply is like taking a drink out of a fire hydrant."
Captain James A. Lovell | Mission Commander, Apollo 13
Reply is a WWII era novel based on historical fact that blends
famous wartime personalities with the book's principal characters in
a fascinating manner. With aviation as the background, the book is
an action mystery story that I think everyone will enjoy. There is
a lot of accurate and interesting information about the creation of
the P-51 Mustang that is not well known. It's a good read that will
keep your interest till the last page."

WWII Triple Mustang Ace and Author of To Fly and Fight
is a stylish novel of the 1940's peopled with some of the greatest
real characters of the time, including Jimmy Doolittle, Hap
Arnold, William Randolph Hearst and Ronald Reagan, whose presence
cleverly supports the adventures of the main characters, WWII
aviation is the essence and there is more than enough flying for
most air buffs, The author's research is impressive and the 500.page
journey is one of high energy from start to finish, Grab a glass of
wine, settle in with this one after dinner and as Bette Davis said,
'Fasten your seat belt, it's gonna be a bumpy night.'"

"What Tom Clancy did for submarines, Frank Johnson has done for the P-51
Mustang. His storytelling takes you as close to aerial combat as you
should ever hope to get. Roseanna's Reply is a love-and-war
epic that celebrates the grand virtues of a bygone era. It's a big
story, powerfully told, of a troubled young woman who has the guts
to embrace the warrior within. But it is also a tale of WWII
intrigue that takes the reader from the blacked-out streets of L.A.
to savage combat in the skies above Europe, with many vivid stops in
between. It's inspiration is in the fascinating and fractious
history of the P-51 Mustang itself, which emerged from obscurity to
become the most famous and important fighter of WWII. So climb into
the cockpit and get ready for the ride of your life"

What most impressed me
about this book was the dialogue. Realistic interaction between
characters is not an easy chore, and I find that first-time
novelists usually don't do well with it.. Roseanna's Reply is
a major exception to the rule. The character development is solid
and all the characters carry their weight and contribute to the
story.. The plot and action flowed ,..and I looked forward each
night to picking it back up to see where things would go."
