Yankee Heroine

I have to admit it. I love stories of females dressing up as males as I've thought about doing the same. Although I have on one occasion done it in college, my days are over where I had dreams of becoming an undercover agent in the FBI.

This book had great pacing and great characters who were well thought out.

She hid from her past to find a future—and landed on enemy soil. When soldier Caitlin McKae wakes up in Atlanta, the Georgian doctor who treats her believes Caitlin’s only secret is that she had been fighting for the South disguised as a man. In order to avoid arrest or worse, Caitlin hides her true identity and makes a new life for herself in Atlanta as a governess for the daughter of Noah Becker—on the brink of his enlistment with the Rebel army. Though starvation rules, and Sherman rages, she will not run again. In a land shattered by strife and suffering, a Union veteran and a Rebel soldier test the limits of loyalty and discover the courage to survive.

This story gripped me from page 5 to the end. Of course you hear about readers raving from beginning to end, I was trying to find my bearings as I read the first few pages. But the story was worth it. I was drawn into the plot and found myself rooting for Caitlin McKae by the end.

I got this book for free from MP Newsroom!
