Lawrence author honored for historical fiction work in national contest

June 9, 2013


Lawrence author Tom Mach earned recognition in this year’s International Book Awards for his novel “Angels at Sunset.”

“Angels at Sunset” was named a finalist in the historical fiction category of the competition, the winners of which were announced last week. USA Book News sponsors the awards, which this year included more than 1,000 entries of mainstream and independent titles published in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Mach describes “Angels at Sunset” — part of which is set in Lawrence — as the story of ”one woman’s lack of forgiveness over the death of her daughter and one man’s desire for murderous revenge,” all set against the backdrop of the woman’s suffrage movement.

Mach’s other historical novels include “Sissy!” and “All Parts Together.” Read more about Mach or purchase his books online at
