From BestThrillers.com - “Much more than a superb conspiracy thriller, Backfill is an absolute must-read for any environmentally conscious reader…a riveting read that’ll expand readers’ understanding of what happens at power plants and the possibility of back-alley conspiracies and executive corruption.…the book’s exciting pace and unusual set of circumstances set it apart from the political thrillers and spy-centric books flooding the shelves.“
From Jo Ella White, Author of Jim’s Courthouse, Jincey’s Rock, The Golden Pawn, and Ko-Wee Mountain. - “This author takes you deeply into a subject few know anything about. I have always had a great appreciation for family history and our ancestors, but even more so after reading Backfill. It is a book hard to put down once you start reading.”
From Winnie Williams, Author of “The Green Earth Challenge: Integrating Faith and the Environment.” - “There is an astonishing amount of environmental information in Backfill by Cynthia Soule Levesque plus a thrilling mystery that mesmerizes the reader. The author has woven a gripping mystery into a book of fiction and yet has provided a startling amount of evidence pointing the way to the environmental impact related to the coal industry. This marvelous book is entertaining as well as a challenge to unearth industries that contribute significantly to global warming. Please read this book.”

Then you wish there was more! “
