Yankee In Atlanta
Heroines Behind The Lines book 3
by Jocelyn Green
-From the back cover-
She hid from her past to find a
future – and landed on enemy soil.
When Caitlin McKae woke up in Atlanta, the Georgian doctor believed Caitlin's only secret was that she had been fighting for the south disguised as a man. In order to avoid arrest or worse, Caitlin hides her true identity and makes a new life for herself in Atlanta as a governess for the daughter of Noah Becker – on the brink of his enlistment with the Rebel army. Though starvation ruled and Sherman raged, could she keep her vow not to run again?
Another thrilling historical from Jocelyn Green!
I have been hooked on Jocelyn Green's Heroines Behind The Lines series since I first read book one, eagerly devouring each succeeding title. With her signature attention to historical detail Jocelyn Green weaves a tale of love and loss, sacrifice and forgiveness. Yankee In Atlanta is an emotionally gripping story that takes the reader through the fears and separations of war, the highs and lows of human relationships.
One of the more fascinating parts of the story was about the Draft Riots in New York City in 1863. Even though I read a lot of history I had never heard of them before and I was inspired to read more.
Jocelyn Green's writing makes you look beyond the dry dates from history lessons and hollow glory of war. Instead you see real people trying doing the best they can and facing the gut-wrenching day-to-day battles of a country torn apart by war.
