What people are saying…

T.L. Criswell has given us full throttle of storytelling and has taken readers on a historical ride of generational honor, dishonor, pride and loyalty. “Peace On That” (The Peacemaker II) allows its readers full access into the lives of the “Jacksons;” how it began, somewhere in the middle, and the remarkable ending. The timeline of countless events span throughout several decades: Life in the south, life up north, the Detroit riots and many, many more. This book is a mountain of treats and sometimes an eruption of emotions will ignite in readers as Criswell displays a voluminous amount of loss and gain affecting the characters in this book.
