Book Review: Shadows of War
A charming story of family, friendship, and community. The story stands out for its accurate portrayal of village life in the North during the Civil War. Largely spared from the clash of armies, Northern civilians were still exposed to the hardships of war through the absence of their young men. For the lucky families, their solider came back at the end of the conflict. Those left behind on the home front where surrounded by the grief experienced by the families of those whose solider would not be coming back home. These themes are touchingly presented in Shadows of War. Highly recommend for middle-grade to adult readers.
4.5 out of 5 stars.
