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? Widow of Gettysburg is inspired by first-person accounts from women who lived in Gettysburg during the battle and its aftermath.

Jocelyn Green is no stranger to the Civil War, this is her second book in the Heroines Behind the Lines Civil War series. And in this novel we are introduced right away to a man that is looking for food. After Liberty Holloway gives the stranger a bite to eat, it takes forever to get him to leave.She can't figure out for the life of her why anyone would be out at a time like this when a severe storm is headed their way.
Of all the battles of the Civil War I probably remember Gettysburg the most. It is probably the most well known of all the battles fought during that time. This book takes place right before that battle began. This book has many twists and turns. many of the characters have huge plot lines on their own. Before long you start reading just so you can see what happens next. It is a very well put together novel rich in American history.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me for free for my honest review from CFBA.
