I recently checked amazon.com to see what the latest was re their marketing of Soldier of the Horse. Interestingly, they list the paperback at $13.68, with the Kindle edition at $9.99. (Other e-readers can access through the publisher, TouchWood Editions.) The original list price is $19.95.
The Audiobook version is now on the market, also at $19.95. Here's what Audiobook says about it:
"Narrator Paul Christy's mature voice provides a calm and steady pace to
this story set in early 20th-century Canada. Law student Tom Macrae has
been falsely accused of a crime, and given a choice between going to
jail or off to the trenches of the Great War, Tom reluctantly chooses to
fight. Just before he is shipped out to England, he meets the love of
his life, only to be torn away from her. Christy's performance is moving
and realistic, and he portrays the gamut of Tom's emotions - from
hopeful joy to horror and bleak resignation - with sensitivity."
I would add to that--yes, but it's not ultimately a downer, at least in my mind.
