Historical fiction novel named Favorite Book of 2008

Historical Fiction
Civil War novel Shades of Gray by Jessica James topped the list of Favorite Books of 2008, across all genres, in picks by The Book Connection.

       The widely acclaimed Civil War novel Shades of Gray received another accolade with the notification that it is the top pick for 2008 on the book review site The Book Connection.

Released in January 2008, Shades of Gray: A Novel of the Civil War in Virginia is the recipient of two prestigious Best Regional Fiction Awards and is already in its second printing. The book has been widely praised by historians for its balanced portrayal of the War Between the States, and by romance readers for its emotional description of the love that develops between the two main characters.
      The historical fiction novel, penned by Gettysburg, Pa., resident Jessica James has become an Amazon Best Seller, rising to #3 in the Romance/Historical category, and competing with such classics as Gone with the Wind.
The Book Connection says in its review that, “Shades of Gray explores the War Between the States in a way that will touch you like no other work of fiction … If you only read one book in 2009, make it this one.”
