Congratulations go out to Jeff Miller for the extremely positive review he received from Kirkus Reviews for his new book about World War I and the Commission for Relief in Belgium. It’s called Behind the Lines and is described on the cover as “WWI's little-known story of German occupation, Belgian resistance, and the band of Yanks who saved millions from starvation.” The review can be found at https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/jeffrey-b-miller/behind-the-lines-oNevKGnT/

The last line of the review reads, “An excellent history that should catapult Miller to the top tier of popular historians.”

Since I was hired to copyedit the book, I know how much work and passion went into it, and I am extremely excited that Jeff is receiving this type of recognition. The book received a star, which, as I understand it, means it was selected as one of the top 750 books reviewed out of about 10,000 reviewed by Kirkus in a year. Because it received a star, it will automatically be entered in the competition for The Kirkus Prize, which is one of the richest literary awards in the world, with $50,000 awarded annually in three categories.

I get what you're saying because I also have a friend who is an author. During his first two years as an author, he was never recognized for the hard work that he put into his work. I was the one who became frustrated because I know that he deserved more than what he is receiving. But during his third year as a writer, he was nominated for an award and fortunately, he won as the Author of the Year. I guess it really just takes time before someone can be successful. We just need to be patient when it comes to our journey to success.
