Widow of Gettysburg (Heroines Behind the Lines: Civil War #2)Widow of Gettysburg by Jocelyn Green

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A gut-punching novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat all the way through.  You'll re-live the battle of Gettysburg at a whole new level.  From the viewpoint of the civilians caught between armies, you'll hear the cannon, smell the gun powder, and hide your eyes from the carnage around you.

Powerful.  Sobering.  Inspiring. 

This isn't a light afternoon read.  This book will challenge how you view one of the most important battles ever fought in the history of our country.  It will also inspire you to look again at the ordinary citizens who do extraordinary things.  Many of the citizens of Gettysburg lost everything in the battle.  Fields were destroyed.  Homes were damaged or destroyed.  Possessions were stolen or wrecked.  Food and animals were taken.  Then the soldiers - those who could - left.  The dead remained.  And so did the wounded... for months and months.

Follow the Widow of Gettysburg as she survives the battle, the aftermath, and the revolution of who she really is.
