#MarchIntoOz #IfYouLeaveMeCanIComeToo Newlywed Rosetta Wakefield wanted to be with her husband so much that when he went to war, she cut her hair, dressed as a man & joined the Union army as Private Ross Stone. I enjoyed this Civil War historical novel that was inspired by the letters of Rosetta Wakeman & other real life 'secret soldiers' during the Civil War.

This was so good! A woman pretends to be a man and enlists in the Union army so she can be with her new husband. I am fascinated by Civil War history and this was hard to put down. Highly recommended!

A simple country girl with aspirations only to spend her days farming alongside the man she loves, Rosetta Wakefield finds herself following her new husband to war—not for glory or pride or honor, but simply to be at his side. Inspired by the Civil War accounts of women fighting disguised as men, Rosetta's is a beautiful and poignant story of relationship, set against the gritty reality of war—transportive, captivating, emotional. #LyricalApril

Day20 #booktober #unforgettablewomen I read this book 2 years ago but Rosetta Wakefield, who fought in the Civil War disguised as Pvt. Ross Stone to be close to her new husband, sticks in my mind. The character is inspired by the letters of Sarah Rosetta Wakeman, a real woman who fought for the Union Army as Pvt. Lyons Wakeman, one of 250 known female Civil War soldiers. A fascinating bit of history & truly strong, unforgettable women. #TBT

#impulsebuy for #augustphotochallenge #29
I bought this ebook when it was on sale because I got hooked by the premise: a woman fighting in the Civil War to stay near her love. Yes, please!

But strangely, I haven't gotten to it yet. Thoughts, littens? Has anyone read this one?

EmilyAnne I really liked this one!! Fair warning though, it did make me cry! 3y
DebinHawaii I reviewed it when it came out and really enjoyed it. And I agree with @EmilyAnne -it definitely made me cry. ❤️📚 3y
KikiLovesBooks I read this book! I had an ARC so I didn't recognize the cover at first. I really liked it--I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads. 3y
