I love the cover! This short story gives a realistic glimpse into the Civil War. The author has really done his research. As another reviewer pointed out, I would have liked the relationship between the brothers to have been stronger. I got a better sense of Thomas than I did Levi. Still, this is a very touching story and I highly recommend it.
Realistic portrayal of a moment in time during a battle in the American Civil War. I enjoyed the writing and really enjoyed the story of Thomas and Levi, but didn't like the conceit of the contemporary story as a vehicle to take us back to the past. Also, I would've liked to have known more about Thomas's internment and death in Andersonville. If these had been addressed, I would've given it four stars instead of three.
