If anyone has ever lived in–or at least visited–a small town in the Texas panhandle, Virginia’s War will transport them back to that land in both space and time. Mr. London has certainly done a fine job of painting a verbal picture of Tierra Texas, and his characters are so real, that I can’t help but wonder if they were based on people he has actually known.For those of us who weren’t yet alive during this time period, Virginia’s War is a great and entertaining way to learn about the other side of history–that history not made in the trenches or the Normandy Invasion, but those events happening here on the home front.

There is a twist at the end of the book, and a mystery. I can only hope that we will soon have a chance to read the next installment of French Letters, or I will personally call the author himself and find out what happened!
