Fans of Civil War stories or women in historical settings will want to grab this engaging book by author Jocelyn Green. Ms. Green takes readers into Gettysburg and shows them the horror of 1863 when thousands of wounded men are brought into a makeshift field hospital. Liberty Holloway is thrust into opening her fledgling Liberty Inn to the bloody, war-torn, men fighting for their lives. Quickly she is recruited to help the one and only doctor on his mission to try to save as many lives as possible.
Liberty's journey through the span of five months brings her hopes and dreams to a halt as she encounters horrific death, a mystery man whom she swears she's met before and as she is forced to face her past, there are twists and surprises at the end. The story is laced with truth from the historical events that changed the lives of those who endured the painful aftermath of the emotional battle between North and South.
