A Great Civil War Read!


Love, loss, and redemption all set against the backdrop of the Civil War. Can you ask for more? I laughed. I nearly cried. I couldn’t put this book down! I loved following up with Ruby from Widow of Gettysburg, watching her transform as her story unfolded. The story was so beautifully written, you’ll feel Caitlin, the heroine’s pain as she struggles to survive on enemy soil and her joy when she’s reunited with her love.

A beautiful, haunting, sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat novel!! You will be immediately captured by Yankee in Atlanta!

5 out of 5 stars! I’m eagerly awaiting Jocelyn’s next book, Spy of Richmond, coming February 2015. Don’t miss this great read!

 When soldier Caitlin McKae woke up in Atlanta after being wounded in battle, the Georgian doctor who treated her believed Caitlin's only secret was that she had been fighting for the Confederacy 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.

Trained as a teacher, she accepts a job as a governess to the daughter of Noah Becker, a German immigrant lawyer, who enlists with the Rebel army. Then in the spring of 1864, Sherman's troops edge closer to Atlanta. Though starvation rules, and Sherman rages, she will not run again. In a land shattered by strife and suffering, a Union veteran and a Rebel soldier test the limits of loyalty and discover the courage to survive. Will honor dictate that Caitlin and Noah follow the rules, or love demand that they break them?
