#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller

Yankee Widow

A richly layered saga is set against the backdrop of the Civil War

In The Yankee Widow, gifted storyteller Linda Lael Miller explores the complexities and heartbreak that families experienced as men took up arms to preserve the nation and defend their way of life.

Told in a smart, assured and compelling voice, this is the story of Caroline, the young wife and childhood sweetheart of Jacob, who together live on a farm raising their daughter, Rachel, just outside of Gettysburg. When Jacob joins the Northern army to do his duty and help save the Union, no one anticipates he will not return. Caroline gets news that he is wounded and has been taken to Washington, DC, with his regiment, and so she must find her way there and navigate the thousands of other wounded soldiers to find him.

Thus begins this novel that focuses on the strong women and men of both sides and both races who sacrificed so much and loved so well during this critical juncture in American history.

“Miller balances character and history well and keeps the pages turning with a fast-paced plot. This is a must-read for historical fiction fans.” Publishers Weekly

“Moving and memorable, this novel reveals the impossible choices women face in wartime.” New York Times bestselling author James Patterson

“This beautifully written novel has several stories contained within its pages. Each is carefully painted within the frame of the horror and violence of the deadliest war in American history. Miller’s extensive research and knowledge of the time period and the war show on every page. But it’s the emotion and the touching accounts she shares that will pull at readers’ heartstrings. You will feel the anguish of the characters, fear for their safety and come to realize that they’re all, in fact, heroes. THE YANKEE WIDOW is in no way a thriller, yet you will be on the edge of your seat until you find out how it all ends.” Pamela Kramer, Bookreporter.com

“This book is one of the best {historical romances} I’ve come across in a while. And because I didn’t realize it’s also the start of a new series for her, I’m already anxiously waiting for the next one, and I have a feeling it’s going to be as great as this story … A richly layered, emotional novel about one woman’s courage and the choices she must make in the face of a dangerous war.” Sandy M, The Good, the Bad and the Unread

“A YANKEE WIDOW is a force of nature. Gritty and real … A YANKEE WIDOW is fiction, but still a wondrous novel by one of my life-long favorite authors … No one fashions characters better than Linda Lael Miller. A YANKEE WIDOW is harsh and it is designed to be. Chalk up another winner for this prolific author. Sandra Wurman, Fresh Fiction
