Widow Of Gettysburg by Jocelyn Green was an interesting book for me to read. I have not read many books that take place during the civil war so this was a different type of book for me. I was glad to read it because I love to know what happened during different time periods in history. Anyways on to this book. In this book you follow along as Liberty’s farm is taken from her & turned into a field hospital. I felt bad for Liberty and everything happened to her during this book. I was sad when this book was over because I had fallen in love with the characters.
About This Book
For all who have suffered great loss of heart, home, health or family; true home and genuine lasting love can be found.
When a horrific battle rips through Gettysburg, the farm of Union widow Liberty Holloway is disfigured into a Confederate field hospital, bringing her face to face with unspeakable suffering-and a Confederate scout who awakens her long dormant heart.
But when the scout doesn’t die she discovers he isn’t who he claims to be .
While Liberty’s future crumbles as her home is destroyed, the past comes rushing back to Bella, a former slave and Liberty’s hired help, when she finds herself surrounded by Southern soldiers, one of whom knows the secret that would place Liberty in danger if revealed.
In the wake of shattered homes and bodies, Liberty and Bella struggle to pick up the pieces the battle has left behind. Will Liberty be defined by the tragedy in her life, or will she find a way to triumph over it?
Inspired by first-person accounts from women who lived in Gettysburg during the battle and its aftermath, Widow of Gettysburg is the Book 2 in the Heroines Behind the Lines series. These books do not need to be read in succession. For more information & resources about the Heroines Behind the Lines series, visit www.heroinesbehindthelines.com.

Okay, that was my official bio. Now, here’s a little more. . .
- If it weren’t for God’s presence in my life, I would not be able to inspire faith and courage in others. He is my inspiration, my strength, my joy.
- My favorite verse is Isaiah 26:3. And also Psalm 30:5. Oh wait, Psalm 34:18 is another great one . . . I’ll stop now.
- I’m an ordinary mom. I make lunches, wipe noses, play Chutes & Ladders, read bedtime stories, dispense band-aids, and give lots of hugs and kisses to my kids while they’ll still let me.
- I fall behind in my household chores from time to time, especially when on deadline. I keep up with laundry pretty well, but my mop doesn’t see any action, for instance, while I write a book.
- We love traditions in this house. Among our favorites: having pizza and Family Movie Night on Fridays, watching Rick Steves on Saturday mornings, spaghetti dinner (made by my husband) on Sundays.
- I do my best writing wearing pants with elastic waistbands. I call these “writing pants.” My favorite pair is summer pajama bottoms from L.L. Bean.
- I’m an introvert but enjoy public speaking. Weird, right?
- I’m really big on list-making. I think it’s hereditary, because my 6-year-old seems to have inherited the gene as well. Evidence at right.
- I tend to either cook 30 meals in a day or go for three months without cooking more than twice a week (and therefore using the 30 meals I had prepared ahead of time). It works out nicely. Although sometimes I wish I was one of those people who cooked and baked super good stuff for fun.
- I’m not very crafty. I’ll just say it. I really admire those who are, though.
Thanks so much for stopping by. This feels a little weird talking so much about myself, but that’s what this page is all about. I’d much rather connect with you in a way that’s not so one-sided, though, so please, connect with me through my blog, the contact page, or my Facebook page. I’d love to hear from you.
