Jocelyn Green in her new book, “Yankee In Atlanta book coverYankee In Atlanta” Book Three in the Heroines Behind the Lines series published by River North Fiction takes us into the life of Caitlin McKae during The Civil War in 1863.

From the Back Cover:  She hid from her past to find a future-and landed on enemy soil.

When Caitlin McKae woke up in Atlanta, the Georgian doctor believed Caitlin’s only secret was that she had been fighting for the South disguised as a man. In order to avoid arrest or worse, Caitlin hides her true identity as a Northerner and makes a new life for herself in Atlanta as a governess for the daughter of Noah Becker-on the brink of his enlistment with the Rebel army. Though starvation ruled and Sherman raged, could she keep her vow not to run again.

All I can say is that this series just seems to get better and better with “Yankee In Atlanta” being the best one yet. The title alone should give you the amount of suspense in this book. Caitlin was fighting dressed up a man when she is wounded and taken care of in Atlanta. While unconscious the doctor discovers she is a woman and tries to accuse her of being a spy which she proves she is not. She becomes the governess for the daughter of Noah Becker who will go fight for the South. Once that happens the unspeakable occurs. This is some story. It has the flavor of “Gone With The Wind” but is much, much better. Ms. Green does an outstanding job of bringing the effects of the war on Caitlin and her new home, on Noah and having to fight against the Germans in the North. If you enjoy history like I do then this book is for you.  Ms. Green skillfully brings to life soldiers, those that stayed at home as well as Sherman burning Atlanta. On top of everything there is even a romance worked into the story.  Ms. Green makes every one of her characters seem to come alive and it is like actually being back there in 1863 with them.  I enjoyed this book a lot and am looking forward to the next one.
