about

"Moving and memorable, this novel reveals the impossible choices women face in wartime.” —James Patterson

"A must read fo
r historical fiction fans."--Publishers Weekly

New York Times bestelling author Linda Lael Miller has created a richly emotional novel about one woman’s courage and the choices she must make in the face of a dangerous war.

Caroline, the young wife of Jacob, a Union solider away at  war, is raising their daughter alone on the family farm just outside of Gettysburg. Word arrives that her husband is wounded, so she travels to Washington City to find him. When Jacob succumbs, she brings his body home on the eve of the deadliest battle of the war. With troops and looters roaming the countryside, it is impossible for her to know who is friend and who is foe. Caroline fights to protect those she loves while remaining compassionate to the neediest around her, including two strangers from opposite sides of the war. Each is wounded.  Each is drawn to her kindness. Both offer comfort, but only one secretly captures her heart. Still, she must resist exposing her vulnerability in these uncertain times when so much is at risk.

In The Yankee Widow, gifted storyteller Linda Lael Miller explores the complexities and heartbreak that women experienced as their men took up arms to preserve the nation.
