About the Author

Mr. Barker’s first two novels were based on family letters saved while cleaning out the family homestead. That find resulted in his novels concerning the Civil War experiences of Frederick Lucas, of Goshen, CT. "Fred and Jennie, a Civil War Love Story" and his second book "Dear Mother from Your Dutiful Son" were enjoyed by hundreds throughout Connecticut and across the country. Mr. Barker has shifted war interests in this new novel "Sumner". After receiving a collection of World War I era photographs of long forgotten relatives, Ernie felt free to construct his version of their history and involvement in the war to end all wars.
