If you have an interest in Civil War history or simply like reading the love letters of historic figures, then I'd highly recommend this book. Stonewall Jackson's military genius is a common topic, but this book provides a window into his personal life, revealing a man of faith, honor, and sentimentality. I have even more respect for him now that I have read some of his personal writings.
This is an amazing book! The language and tone that Jackson uses with his beloved is magnificient and worthy of emulation. The manner in which he discusses God and God's Providence is generally above reproach and reflects a profound humility and grasp of the nature of self and the Holiness of God. Five stars!
