    4 stars Beautiful writing Charming characters Unforgettable story.Caroline is a young wife and mother who is left to manage the family farm when her husband, Jacob, joins the army and is sent off into war Caroline stays strong in the face of the unknown, with the help of her four year old daughter, Rachel, her grandmother, Geneva, and hired farmhand, Enoch One day Caroline receives word that Jacob is wounded on the battlefield She leaves Rachel with Geneva and the farm in Enoch s care, to travel in search of her husband.These characters were so extremely loveable I felt an immediate connection to all of them and was fully invested in their lives and situation The author, Linda Lael Miller, had me completely engrossed within the Civil War era, creating a storyline that kept me captivated and curious throughout This is my f...

    As a lover of historical fiction 0f WWII, I jumped at the chance to read something a bit out of my usual by reading this one While what I thought was out of my usual it wasn t so much and I was pleasantly surprised Back in the day, historical romance heavy on the romance was my favorite and I loved stories with the backdrop to the civil war I was reminded in this story just how fascinated by the civil war I am.The Yankee Widow is a refreshing, moving and richly layered saga with strong well developed characters, well plotted story that explores duty, loyalty, family and friends bonds and love I was drawn into the lives of these characters right from the start and was turning the pages as fast as I could Linda Lael Miller does a good job here balancing the characters from both sides of the war, with a little romance and weaving the history in as well that allowed me to form my own thoughts for each character and had me feeling for them all.The Yankee Widow had it all here to make this an interesting, thought provoking and entertaining read for me The romance to the story felt a bit rushed and predictable leaving the eye rolling to a minimum and allowing me not to have to think about it too much Just adding a nice touch to the story that left me enterta...

    Immersive, passionate vivid THE YANKEE WIDOW by LINDA LAEL MILLER was an interesting, riveting, compelling, heartfelt, moving and highly entertaining historical fiction novel that immediately grabbed my attention and held taut right to the very end I was thoroughly impressed and fascinated with this storyline and with MILLER S storytelling It has been quite a little while that I have been this entranced and absorbed in a historical fiction novel I was glued to those pages LINDA LAEL MILLER delivers quite the atmospheric, engaging, intriguing, beautifully written and well plotted read here that I was totally drawn into There were so many scenes within this book that totally touched and warmed my heart along with moments that twisted my heart to shreds The characterizations of place and time along with the characters themselves were absolutely wonderful and so vividly descriptive, placing me easily into the heart of this novel I absolutely loved all the characters in this book and I was definitely emotionally invested in them.I do love a little romance within my novels and I totally ate this one right up I was completely besotted with these male characters and couldn t decide who I thought was the better catch for our lovely main character, Caroline The ...

    She cried for mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters She cried for Mr Lincoln and the devastating burdens they bore, day by day, night by night She wept for the nation she loved so dearly, forged in the hardship and hope and courage in the face of impossible odds, only to lie broken and bleeding. Linda Lael Miller presents a novel carved ruggedly from the dire sacrifices thrust upon this nation during the Civil War She pivots her story back and forth through the eyes of those held captive by their beliefs and by their very actions As a true historian, she makes no bones about bringing truth to the hell that stormed relentlessly during those years.Caroline Hammond has received word that her husband has been seriously wounded at the Battle of Chancellorsville in Virginia She and Jacob owned a small family farm outside of Gettysburg in Pennsylvania From the very first page we, as readers, witness the taking down of Corporal Jacob Hammond as he s hit with the first minnie ball and lays helplessly upon the ground We hear the voices of scavengers as they go through his belongings strewn in the dirt We listen to his raspy, uneven breathing while keeping a vigil for what is yet to come.And we follow Caroline as she searches the medical tents for her fallen husband It is only by chance and by the goodwill of a nurse that she finds Jacob She spends her husband s last hou...

    Beautifully written and rich in detail, The Yankee Widow will transport you back in time to an era that is seldom talked about let alone experienced With a country literally torn in two with brother again brother and friend and foes alike, this atmospheric novel will make you feel like you are in the very heart of the battle, both on the field and off A time when war raged the country side, women had to be strong and independent and children grew up way too fast When men were gentlemen still and freedom was a thing that not everyone experienced or got the luxury of having Wonderfully told in alternating point of views, The Yankee Widow will tug at your heart strings and keep you thoroughly engaged the whole way through Truly a riveting story that you will be glad you took th...

    A beautiful story about going where your heart leads no matter your beliefs Miller pulls out all the stops on this emotional, gripping tale set during the Civil War She puts you smack in the center of the action with multiple viewpoints ranging from a war torn widow to a slave to two best friends fighting on opposite sides Grieving widow Caroline Hammond lives on a farm outside of Gettysburg and finds herself in the middle of one of the biggest, bloodiest battles of the war In the aftermath, her farm becomes the site of a hasty field hospital of sorts only without a doctor She does what can to try to save the wounded and the two friends who fight on opposite sides In doctoring the Rebel, she s forced to examine her beliefs about the Southerners and this man whose side struck down her husband in his prime If you re looking for a swee...

    The Yankee Widow is a stunning piece of historical fiction I was immediately drawn into the story and the time of the American Civil war I didn t know much about this period in history so I found all the historical details really fascinating.The story is told from multiple points of view from people on both sides of the conflict which helped increase my understanding of the personal impact of the war on the normal people who had to live through it and fight in it It was often the case that friends and family were fighting against each other which made for quite emotional reading at times.I didn t realise that the Civil War started due to Lincoln wanting to abolish slavery but enjoyed learning about the treatment of slaves at that time, the cruel slave catchers and the underground railroad which I found incredibly intriguing It s astonishing to think about how people were treated just because of the colour of their skin and some of the passages relating to this were quite uncomfortable to read about, especially as I soon grew incredibly fond of both Enoch and Jubie.This was a gripping and thoroughly absorbing story that I found very difficult to put down There is ...

    ARC provided by publisher for review I really enjoyed this historical fiction novel The Yankee Widow is set during the civil war This is a time period I do not know much about as I am Canadian and I love reading about time periods I know less about The particular story is about the Hammond family All the characters in this book where well developed and I felt the emotions they did This one was told in multiple POV s but mainly through Caroline I really enjoyed her chapters as she was such a strong women but she has her struggles and doubts just like the rest of us and she is just doing the best she can Enoch, the hired help, was also another favourtie of mine and at points I could see his sorrow coming through the page and I wanted to give him a hug but he was also determined and he cared for people in his lif...
