WIDOW OF GETTYSBURG gives women’s and local’s points-of-view regarding the Civil War itself in the days before, during and weeks following the famous and intense battle at Gettysburg. Liberty was a surprisingly strong character who rose up to the challenge. I liked the interaction that Amelia provided as the grieving mother-in-law. Bella showed a quiet strength, guiding Liberty. Jocelyn Green provides tons of historical accuracy in her books. One example I can provide is the Necco wafers that the reporter carried. In addition to learning about the townfolk and their stories, you’ll come away having learned a lot about war and its damages. This is an excellent, well-researched story.
