Book Review: Letters From Home by Grace Buckner

Good afternoon, Arrowheads! Today, I’d like to share with you a review I did for a sweet Goodreads friend, Grace Buckner, for her novella, Letters From Home: A Civil War Story. Due to it being a quick read, the review is shorter than some of the other reviews I’ve done in the past. However, I still highly recommend you check out Letters From Home if you’re a fan of historical fiction!


What a quick, sweet, and informative read! I haven’t read much historical fiction, but I found Letters from Home intriguing because it’s based in my home state of North Carolina. The emotion in the letters between Reuben and Marigold (love that name, by the way! 😊) was both believable and palpable. The information about the war conditions were eye-opening and taught me a lot! I also commend the author for taking the liberty to make a character reference list and further explain which events in the story were historically accurate. Very well done!

I received a free ebook copy of Letters from Home in exchange for an honest review.

Overall rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ out of 5 stars.

Thanks for reading! My next review will be for Jes Drew’s Fugitives, so stay tuned!
