Publisher's Description


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?

Editorial Reviews

"'God bless the women and the hardships they endured,' writes author Jocelyn Green. While this powerful novel intermittently dismounts upon the Civil War battlefields, this story is really about the courageous heroines behind the lines and the impact this war bore on them. Jocelyn proficiently and expressively pens an emotive journey into the Civil War era that encompasses families torn apart, the bombardment of shells and musket-fire; terrifying riots; gnawing hunger; reckless disease and injury; prejudices; and the taxing scarcity of sleep and strength. But mostly it is an entrancing story of hope and love amidst destruction, and the survival and victory of the battle-worn yet courageous heart and spirit.

This is a Civil War story with enormous heart, effortlessly capturing your senses and absorbing you into the lives of the strong, yet vulnerable characters that Jocelyn has skilfully created. Historical figures that played a vital role in the war also appear in this exceptionally researched novel. Likewise, many notable Civil War events are seamlessly interwoven into 'Yankee in Atlanta' - all of it making this novel, an overall feast of stirring history featuring two achingly beautiful love stories." ~Noela Nancarrow, http://cfpagels.blogspot.com/, June 17, 2014

Excellent ending to the trilogy! Jocelyn Green has done a wonderful job of portraying the Civil War through the eyes of the women who were adversely affected.

Yankee in Atlanta is the story of Caitlin McKae from New York. An Irish immigrant, she flees her step-father and follows her brother off to war. Found wounded on a battlefield, she is mistaken for a Confederate and taken to an Atlanta hospital. She accepts the responsibility for raising a young girl, the daughter of German immigrant Noah Becker, who enlists to fight for the Confederacy.

Trapped in a hostile land, charged with the care of a daughter not her own, living under the suspicion of being a spy due to her accent, Caitlin has to find a way to survive not only her enemy, but her own army's invasion.

Gritty. Realistic. Powerful. Emotional. These books are well worth your time.

    rites tour-de-force novels that fire your imagination and teach you a history lesson at the same time.

    Yankee in Atlanta is the third installment in her Civil War series, and I'm enjoying seeing the three thick volumes together on my bookshelf.

    The first, Wedded to War, followed well-bred Charlotte Waverly when she entered the Sanitary Commission and became a nurse to the worst of the wounded.

    The second, Widow of Gettysburg, introduced us to spirited Liberty Holloway whose hidden heritage will redeem her or destroy her.

    And this one catapults us into Caitlin McKae's story- as an Irish New Yorker, a female soldier, and a Heroine Behind the Lines.

    Caitlin's time as a soldier is nearly over when we meet her, so this isn't a book about a woman trying to stay undetected amid the ranks.

    (I like those stories, but I'm glad Jocelyn didn't go that direction here.)

    Instead, Caitlin wakes after being wounded, lost in Rebel Territory, being tended by a gentle doctor and his sister.

    Thanks to the kindness of a dying Confederate, she arrived at the hospital with a tourniquet made out of a grey jacket.

    There's no reason for anyone to suspect she's a Northern sympathizer. No reason at all.

    So Noah Becker trusts her as guardian of his daughter when the Confederacy sweeps him away to war.

    And Caitlin is worthy of that trust. She has come to respect Noah and she adores his child... but she can't protect Ana from Sherman's shelling, and she can't hide her from the Smallpox, and the local Provost Marshal has declared that Caitlin must be a spy.

    These are books you can feel good about lending to friends.

    They're detailed, but not overwhelming. They're action-packed, but not frenetic.

    They're all about War between the States and its devastation, but the individual human element isn't lost.

    The characters are spiritually strong, yet their faith and doubt and fear all come across naturally as part of them.

    And each book includes a healthy dose of love- between parents and children, between comrades at arms, and between couples who dare to hope for the days when the war ends.

    Just like finding the story of Ruth amidst the time of Judges, this series reminds me how the common people survive a national upheaval and/or a personal tragedy. They pick up the broken pieces, they gather their families, they bless their meager food, and somehow they keep on keeping on.

    Thank you MP Newsroom for sending me a copy to review. Five Stars, and I'm now waiting for Spy of Richmond. :-)

    The research this author put into her work is phenomenal. The situation in Atlanta while Sherman systematically destroyed the city is brought to life in black and white, and if you like that time period I think you will love this book. Don't worry--there is a happy ending.

    All Caitlin McKae really wants to do is find Jack. She'd left him on the battlefield, and she didn't know if he were dead or alive. It wasn't like she left him on purpose. Disguised as a soldier, she'd fought alongside him. When she was wounded and out cold, someone found her and assumed the rebel coat wrapped around her bleeding arm meant she was a southern sympathiser despite her Irish accent.

    They took her to Atlanta, and she found herself teaching at a school--which was promptly shut down because they needed the building for a hospital. Now what? Her next option would be...what? When southern gentleman Noah Becker offers her a home in return for teaching and caring for his little girl, it seems her only option.

    To the north, in New York City, widow Ruby O'Flannery cares for her one-year-old boy and sews dresses for the wealthy ladies in town. Edward Goodrich, a man with a pastorate in his future, seems more interested in Ruby than in the Bible studies they do. He might not be so interested in her if he knew....

    Our thoughts most often bring to mind the men who fought and died during the Civil War, forgetting the women who fought through this most violent war as well. Behind the lines, housing and aiding refugees and keeping life together, women represented strength that surpasses all understanding. This riveting novel of two families, one struggling in the north and the other barely surviving in the south bring to reality the violence, intolerance and hatred that the Civil War represented.

    Written with creativity and authenticity this novel is presented with rich historical detail, indicating that the author has researched her topic very carefully. The characters throughout this novel are described and developed with a realism that is commendable. Locations are described with accuracy and detail, transporting the reader to the various locations throughout the book. Jocelyn Green has proven herself to be a very gifted author who recreates a very difficult time in our nation's history, and without bias. I highly recommend "Yankee in Atlanta!" I have not read the prequels in this series, but this book easily stands on its own!
