Staff Picks Wedded to War by Jocelyn Green (Adult Fiction)

Wedded to War by Jocelyn Green 

Wedded to War swept me away into a powerful, deep and heartfelt drama. My heart ached for the cast of conflicted characters. This story is brilliantly woven from the fabric of history with characters that pulled at my heart as they endured unimaginable aspects of war. It moved me and marked my heart. This story is meant to be experienced and shared with others. With so much to discuss from cover to cover, it’s a top choice for book clubs!
