Last year I read and reviewed two books from Jocelyn Green- Widow of Gettysburg and Wedded to War. These are both part of the Heroines Behind the Lines series and I loved them. I was very glad to be able to review Yankee in Atlanta.

These books- set during the War Between the States- feature characters who live on both sides of the Mason Dixon line. As a died in the wool Southerner and a bit of a history buff, I was concerned that I would notice a little leaning toward to the ideals of the Union. But I think the books do a fairly good job of portraying both sides.

One thing I really enjoy about these books in the historical information throughout. I love the rich, historical details. And I love the picture of what life was like for these women during the war.

Yankee in Atlanta has great characters that are easy to get to know. Jocelyn Green does an excellent job building these characters and drawing the reader in to their lives. The characters are interesting and compelling.

I really loved Yankee in Atlanta. It was another great addition to the series. I give it 5 stars and a PG for content.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for review purposes. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

Jocelyn Green is a child of God, wife and mom living in Cedar Falls, Iowa. She is also an award-winning journalist, author, editor and blogger. Though she has written nonfiction on a variety of topics, her name is most widely recognized for her ministry to military wives: Faith Deployed. Her passion for the military family was fueled by her own experience as a military wife, and by the dozens of interviews she has conducted with members of the military for her articles and books, Faith Deployed: Daily Encouragement for Military Wives and its sequel, Faith Deployed...Again: More Daily Encouragement for Military Wives. She is also co-author of both Stories of Faith and Courage from the War in Iraq & Afghanistan and Stories of Faith and Courage from the Home Front (forthcoming, May 2012). Her Faith Deployed Web site and Facebook page continue to provide ongoing support, encouragement and resources for military wives worldwide.


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 is about to enlist with the Rebel army. Then in the spring of 1864, Sherman's troops edge closer to Atlanta. Caitlin tries to escape north with the girl, but is arrested on charges of being a spy. Will honor dictate that Caitlin follow the rules, or love demand that she break them?
