Wedded to War
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
With the Civil War on the horizon, Charlotte wants more out of her life than just living a privileged life. So she leaves her life of privilege in order to work as a war nurse. Despite several setbacks, including doctors who are convinced that women will not make good nurses, Charlotte proves herself useful in her nursing duties. While her life as a nurse is certainly not glamorous, she works hard in order to show others that she is capable of doing the hard work.
Wedded to War follows the viewpoint of several different characters in the book. While it was somewhat confusing at some points, all of the characters ended up being connected somehow and it was cool to see how that all worked out. The Civil War time is one of the times in history that especially interests me so I enjoyed reading this novel that was inspired by the true story of a war nurse. This is the first book in the Heroines Behind the Line series and I am excited to read the rest of the books to see what other Civil War stories the author has to tell.
