Fresh Fiction Review

The Yankee Widow
Linda Lael Miller

Romance Historical

Caroline became a young widow due to the Civil War. Mourning her husband, Caroline is trying to keep the family farm going with the help of a freed slave and a pregnant runaway. War rages around her bringing to her home two men from different sides of the war, who are best friends. Who will survive? Who will she pick? What secrets are revealed and can she love again?

I was pulled back in time to the Civil war with Linda Lael Miller's descriptions of life during that time in THE YANKEE WIDOW. You could feel the struggles and the passion of the characters about each other and their convictions and loyalty to their cause. Linda Lael Miller shows you that love can overcome your differences and show you the person underneath if you look close enough and that love is blind. The struggle of life during wartime and that you can put aside your convictions to help whoever might need it.

SUMMARY

A richly layered saga is set against the backdrop of the Civil War

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

Told in a smart, assured and compelling voice, this is the story of Caroline, the young wife and childhood sweetheart of Jacob, who together live on a farm raising their daughter, Rachel, just outside of Gettysburg. When Jacob joins the Northern army to do his duty and help save the Union, no one anticipates he will not return. Caroline gets news that he is wounded and has been taken to Washington, DC, with his regiment, and so she must find her way there and navigate the thousands of other wounded soldiers to find him.

Thus begins this novel that focuses on the strong women and men of both sides and both races who sacrificed so much and loved so well during this critical juncture in American history.
