ABOUT THE BOOK
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 in the series "Heroines Behind the Lines: Civil War," a collection of novels that highlights the crucial contributions made by women during times of war.

I went through phases of liking and disliking this book as I read it. There was something in the book I just can't put my finger on that I did not enjoy as much. I think part of it was the side story of Ruby at times was hard for me to swallow. Even though it was realistic it was well, sad. But for the most part I liked this story. I ended it wanting to read the next books in the series so I think that is a very good thing. I give this book 3 out of 5 stars. It is an interesting read and very lively.
