Tending to the army's sick and wounded meant leading a life her mother
does not understand and giving up a handsome and approved suitor. Yet Charlotte
chooses a life of service over privilege, just as her childhood friend had done
when he became a military doctor. She soon discovers that she's combatting more
than just the rebellion by becoming a nurse. Will the two men who love her simply
stand by and watch as she fights her own battles? Or will their desire for her wage
war on her desire to serve God?
Wedded to War is a work of fiction,
but the story is inspired by the true life of Civil War nurse Georgeanna Woolsey.
Woolsey's letters and journals, written over 150 years ago, offer a thorough look
of what pioneering nurses endured. This is the first of the series "Heroines Behind
the Lines: Civil War," a collection of novels that highlights the crucial contributions
made by women during times of war.
