Last Letter To Gettysburg by Jan Thornton Jones is a historical tale that follows a young boy called Levi, whose father goes off to fight in the Civil War. Despite being a teacher, Levi's father explains how he must fight for what he believes in, that he can't just stand back and let the country that was once united be torn apart any further. Pick up Last Letter To Gettysburg to find out what other important messages author Jan Thornton Jones has included in this brilliantly told story, as well as seeing where Levi and his family end up.

Jan Thornton Jones's Last Letter To Gettysburg will inspire the reader to feel that they can overcome any hardship they face and to know that they should fight for what they believe in, no matter how big or small. These messages are woven throughout the entire narrative and, by the end, I had tears in my eyes from this beautifully thought-out story. I adored the character choice and found the plot to be realistic. The writing makes it easy to imagine it all in your head. I have never been able to get into, or fully understand historical events as it isn't my strong suit, but Jan Thornton Jones has made it easy for someone such as myself to get a better understanding of what people went through around a time of war, and that to me shows what a skilled writer looks like. This book would be good to read somewhere private where you can allow your emotions to run free, because I assure you, by the end, you will need a tissue or two! Keep up the good work, Jan!
