ForeWord Magazine, a literary trade journal, has announced that Shades of Gray: A Novel of the Civil War in Virginia, by Gettysburg author Jessica James, is a finalist in its 2008 Book of the Year Awards.

The book has already garnered several awards and accolades including an Indie and an IPPY award for Best Regional Fiction, and a FAVORITE BOOK of 2008 listing by two book review sites. It has also been nominated for the 2009 Michael Shaara Award for Civil War Fiction.

Lauded for its ability to evoke intense emotion, Shades of Gray presents the passionate debate of The War Between the States in an epic tale of love and adventure. The Book Connection said in its review, “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.”

More than 1,400 books were entered in the ForeWord Magazine Book of the Year Award program. Winners will be determined by a panel of librarians and booksellers, and will be announced in May.

Shades of Gray can be purchased at bookstores or from Internet book retailers like Amazon and Barnes and Noble, as well as through the author's website,
