I know much of the country is white with snow right now, but with Valentine’s Day approaching, it’s time to have warm hearts even if the rest of us is freezing.
In honor of the romantic occasion, I have put together a little booklet called “From the Heart: Love Stories and Letters from the Civil War.”
These are true stories of enduring love that I have run across in doing research for my award-winning historical fiction novel Shades of Gray. Since this year marks the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, I thought this topic would be very fitting.
In the book, I have included letters from some of the most well known Civil War leaders, including generals J.E.B. Stuart, Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, and George Pickett, among others.
No matter how much or little you know about these important historical characters, I think you will be surprised at their heartfelt words of love.
If you are interested in receiving a copy of this e-book, please either leave a comment or email me directly with your email address, and feel free to follow my blog at http://www.jessicajamesblog.com/. I’ll be sending the book out the first week of February.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
