Waiting on Wednesday #47: Widow of Gettysburg

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're
eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Widow of Gettysburg by Jocelyn Green
River North-May 1, 2013

About the Book
When a horrific battle rips through Gettysburg, the farm of Union widow Liberty Holloway is disfigured into a Confederate field hospital, bringing her face to face with unspeakable suffering--and a Rebel scout who awakens her long dormant heart. 
While Liberty's future crumbles as her home is destroyed, the past comes rushing back to Bella, a former slave and Liberty's hired help, when she finds herself surrounded by Southern soldiers, one of whom knows the secret that would place Liberty in danger if revealed.
In the wake of shattered homes and bodies, Liberty and Bella struggle to pick up the pieces the battle has left behind. Will Liberty be defined by the tragedy in her life, or will she find a way to triumph over it?
Widow of Gettysburg is inspired by first-person accounts from women who lived in Gettysburg during the battle and its aftermath.

Why I Want It
This author's previous book was one of my favorite debuts of 2012 so I'm really looking forward to this one!

Hi everyone! So glad Widow made your list of eagerly-anticipated releases! FYI, the cover has changed since this one you have in the post. There is a new model who looks more the way I've described her in the book. And now, they are going to change her again so she's not just standing there. This character is a lot stronger than she looks! So don't be surprised if you look for this title when it releases in May and it looks different. Same book on the inside! :)
Thanks again, I'm thrilled you're watching for Widow!
