When a horrific battle rips through Gettysburg, the farm of Union widow Liberty Holloway is disfigured
into a Confederate field hospital, bringing her face to face with unspeakable suffering—and a Rebel scout who awakens her long dormant heart.
While Liberty’s future crumbles as her home is destroyed, the past comes rushing back to Bella, a
former slave and Liberty’s hired help, when she finds herself surrounded by Southern soldiers, one of whom knows the secret that would place Liberty in danger if revealed.
In the wake of shattered homes and bodies, Liberty and Bella struggle to pick up the pieces the battle
has left behind. Will Liberty be defined by the tragedy in her life, or will she find a way to triumph over it?
Author Julie Lessman writes, “Superb fiction—stunning history! Plucked from the annals of our country’s most turbulent time, Widow of Gettysburg is
a powerful love story that will not only haunt and inspire, but change you forever.”
“Jocelyn’s detailed research and literary talent combine to transport the reader to another place and time…so real that you feel the earth shake and taste the gunpowder as
it lays heavy in the air.”—Mavis Starner, Adams County Historical Society, Gettysburg, PA
