    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!

    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.
