Lihue, HI -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/19/2014 -- Shanti Publishing, the book publishing company which helps authors fulfil their dreams by publishingand promoting their books, has today announced the launch of the book The Drummer’s Call, by author Patricia Leppo.

The Drummer’s Call - which is available on Kindle and paperback on Amazon will also be available as a free download on Amazon (3/21-3/24) - is a riveting tale where the characters’ lives are forever changed. Josh is a typical fourteen-year-old whose days are consumed with video games, drum lessons, school and friends. While visiting his great-aunt's historic inn in Dover, TN, he is thrust back to the year 1862, a time before electricity, running water, telephones or automobiles. To make matters worse, the country is embroiled in the Civil War. Trapped in the past, Josh has no choice but to become involved.

“The book was inspired by my interest in genealogy. I discovered a few of my ancestors were in the Civil War, and at least one was a Civil War drummer who is said to have met President Lincoln,” said Patricia Leppo, author of the book The Drummer’s Call. “Very little has been written about the Civil War drummers, yet they were called the heartbeat of the military. I thought it would be interesting to write a book about a boy from the present who travels back in time and finds himself enlisting in the Civil War as a Union drummer.”
