Praise for Thibeaults books:
'Balto's Nose is a mind expanding book for lovers of historical fiction; those who have read a few and have not been impressed; and those new to the genre. Knowing that the facts are authentic, makes one knowing that the characters are imaginary hard to believe. The main characters would be considered heroes in any decade. The feeling of patriotism evoked by reading the book lingers long after the book concludes. The fine balance between the protagonists and antagonists results in the reader wanting to cheer or "boo" them. The genuineness of the dialogue from dramatic to humorous and back again never ceases to surprise the reader. One actually feels as if one is eavesdropping. The reader becomes not only educated in the facts of the looting of treasures by the Nazis during World War Two; but, also, learns about the looted treasures. This knowledge can lead to further researching the treasures mentioned to actually being able to see them on-line. Upon completion of the book, one is left with not only new knowledge; but, also, a sadness that the book has ended.' - Reader Review on Amazon - 5 stars
'This historical novel of the U.S. Civil War provided insight for me into the lives of Admiral Francis Du Pont (memorialized in DuPont Circle, Washington, DC) and Robert Smalls, a slave whose daring seamanship freed not only himself, family, and friends. A good read and well-researched!' - Reader Review on Amazon (for Man Who Stole Himself) - 5 stars
