CAN Treasure Hunt with guest Jocelyn Green
Jocelyn, you write both fiction and nonfiction, but they have something in common: war. Why is that?
Well, not just war—hope and courage in the midst of it. I’m a former military wife, so my first books were devotionals written for military wives who, like me, craved spiritual nourishment. After I’d been writing nonfiction for a few years, switching to historical fiction set in the Civil War era was an exciting change of pace. I strive to inspire faith and courage in all my readers, whether they are reading my devotions or my novels.
Your novel Widow of Gettysburg focuses on the civilian experience during that famous battle in 1863, and its aftermath. If we visit Gettysburg, will we be able to see anything that’s mentioned in your novel?

My third novel: Yankee in Atlanta. It’s a story about two families torn apart by war. Two hearts divided by love and honor. 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. The official release is June, but it’s available for pre-order now.
