It is my absolute pleasure to get to share with you about my good friend, Jocelyn Green and her FANTASTIC Civil War series, Heroines Behind the Lines. I recently read the first book in her series, Wedded to War and absolutely loved it.
Rarely am I swept away in a novel as I was by Wedded to War. A fresh voice in Christian fiction, Jocelyn Green captures the heartache and hope of war in this novel that is filled with incredible historic detail about those who worked on the front lines of the Civil War–the soldiers who gave so much to defend their country and the nurses who sacrificed all to care for them. Laced with heart-tugging romance and a hint of mystery, the story of how Charlotte Waverly traded in her hoop skirts for a nursing uniform, the scent of rosewater in her hair for tangles and wisps as she ladled beef tea into a dying soldiers mouth, and her soft hands for the hands of someone who worked without sleep to care for the men who have no one else to care for them, will bring tears to your eyes, a smile to your face and quite possibly, will have you walk away a different person than you were when you began.
Award-winning author Jocelyn Green inspires faith and courage in her readers through both fiction and nonfiction. A former military wife herself, she offers encouragement and hope to military wives worldwide through her Faith Deployed ministry. Her novels, inspired by real heroines on America’s home front, are marked by their historical integrity and gritty inspiration.
I’ve put together a bundle of goodies inspired by the story to give away to one commenter! One of the little luxuries the heroine of Wedded to War enjoys when she can is a cup of tea so included here is a small sugar bowl, little spoon and a house-shaped tea “ball” that reminded me of Charlotte’s home, plus some white rose tea, a bar of cranberry soap, a little handkerchief and a star shaped wall hook.
