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,ย 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 outย Letters From Homeย 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! ๐Ÿ˜Š) 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:ย โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ out of 5 stars.

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