Review "This novel left me in awe." ~Laurie Alice Eakes, author of Heart's Safe Passage

"Stirring detail and a firm grasp of the historical background." ~Carol Kammen, History News  and Tompkins County (N.Y.) Historian

"Powerful, deep, and heartfelt. A top choice for book clubs!" ~Nora St. Laurent, The Book Club Network

"The research behind this shines. Green's descriptions of the first hospitals, the horrors of battlefield medicine, and the extraordinary courage and vision of the women who took on this challenge carry the whole book. For this alone it's worth the read." -Historical Novel Society

Wow, what an amazing story based on real women in history. When I finished the last page of this book I was changed, much like how I felt after watching Dances with Wolves and Gone with the Wind. Both movies opened my eyes to things I never thought of before or knew existed and it changed how I viewed periods of American history. If only our history book in school was this exciting and memorable. Grin! This is a great book club pick as there is so much to talk about in it. This book is to be experienced and then shared with friends. I highly recommend it.

"Fascinating, dramatic, and romantic, Wedded to War by Jocelyn Green sheds light on the harrowing world of Civil War nursing through the eyes of a delightful heroine. Detailed research and a powerful message about mercy make this story a keeper. This is the first in the Heroines Behind the Lines Civil War series, and I'm much anticipating the second book!" - Review by Sarah Sundin,, 7/12/12

From the Author I wrote Wedded to War to shine the spotlight on the women who, during the Victorian Age, no less, started something that saved hundreds of thousands of lives. New York City's Women's Central Association for Relief prompted the government to establish the U.S. Sanitary Commission, which supported the government with supplies, nurses, food and much more. The women who pioneered this effort did so at great personal sacrifice and are the unsung heroes of the Civil War. pdf
