Not many books have been written about women who served in the Civil War. Jocelyn Green has started a new series on that topic, and the first book is fabulous! She has taken the story of Georgianna Woolsey, a real life nurse during the war, and has created a true to life fictional account of what it must have been like to be one of the first female nurses in the country.
The story has wonderful twist and turns, suspense, and gut-wrenching accounts of life on the battlefield. I would highly recommend this book for anyone interested in historical fiction, and I can't wait for the next in the series!

ABOUT THE BOOK
Tending to the army's sick and wounded meant leading a life her mother does not understand and giving up a handsome and approved suitor. Yet Charlotte chooses a life of service over privilege, just as her childhood friend had done when he became a military doctor. She soon discovers that she's combatting more than just the rebellion by becoming a nurse. Will the two men who love her simply stand by and watch as she fights her own battles? Or will their desire for her wage war on her desire to serve God?
Wedded to War is a work of fiction, but the story is inspired by the true life of Civil War nurse Georgeanna Woolsey. Woolsey's letters and journals, written over 150 years ago, offer a thorough look of what pioneering nurses endured. This is the first in the series "Heroines Behind the Lines: Civil War," a collection of novels that highlights the crucial contributions made by women during times of war.
