Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy!

Book Review: Legacy Road by Graham Garrison

Legacy Road is the story of a young man Wes Watkins’ struggles and discoveries.  The main pieces of the story revolve around Wes’ post-graduate studies of the Civil War, reconciling a relationship with his father who has been in prison, helping his mother through sudden illness, and working through a relationship with Wes’ girlfriend.

It has several interesting themes, including love and loss; communication in family and close relationships; uncovering and understanding secrets from your past; forgiveness and reconciliation; and supporting loved ones through tough times.

It is a well-written tale of human life and relationships set against the backdrop of the Civil War.

It’s a good book for teens or adults who are interested in history and interpersonal relationships.

I read this book before reading Graham Garrison’s prequel, “Hero’s Tribute”.  I would suggest that readers read “Hero’s Tribute” first, so they’ll have a better understanding of the storyline.

I received this complimentary book from Kregel Publications, who asked me to share honest feedback with readers.
