CAN Treasure Hunt with guest Jocelyn Green




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?

Yes! There is a list in the back of the novel of all the sites, but two of my favorites would be the Seminary Ridge Museum   (pictured on the cover of the novel); And The Shriver House Museum.
For travel guides related to my first novel, Wedded to War, check out this blog post on historic sites of Washington DC, and this one on historic sites of New York City.

What’s next?
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.

Where can readers find out more about you?
Please join me on my Web site!

I’d also love to see you:

Hi, thank you for the post, I've never read any of Jocelyn Green's books but they sound like they are perfect for me. I love history, especially Civil War era :)

Sereina said...

Just recently I discovered the Love Blossoms in Oregon series and added it to my to-read list. Even though I haven't read them yet, I think it's neat that they're set in OR, as I've grown up going there often.

Heather Olsen said...

I have read Blowing on Dandelions and eagerly wait to read Wishing on Buttercups. I have also read Love Finds You in Tombstone, Last Chance and Bridal Veil, and enjoyed all of them. Thank you for the giveaway.

Jocelyn said...

TERESA, it's great to meet you! If you love Civil War history, I think you'd really enjoy my Heroines Behind the Lines Civil War series. Each book is inspired by real heroines who actually lived. In the back of each novel, I have a section called The History Behind the Story which explains which events and people were historical, and which were purely fictional. Hope you entered to win a copy on my blog post! Have fun, everyone! :)

Lora Schultze said...

I love the covers of your books! They are beautiful and I can't wait to read the content!

Jackie McNutt said...

Miralee, I have read Blowing On Dandelions. I am waiting on Wishing on Buttercups and cant wait to read your new one!
I have not had the pleasure of reading Jocelyn's books yet.

Jocelyn said...

LORA, thank you! Unless you were directing your comment to Miralee, in which case I'd say yes, I agree! I do love Miralee's covers. Just beautiful, and her writing is just as lovely. :)

Andrea said...

I have a copy of Blowing on Dandelions, but have not gotten to it yet. I love books in a series though and once I start one I tend to search for the others.

Teresa Kay Lam said...

Jocelyn,

That is really neat and useful feature. I've went to Amazon and added your books to my Kindle wish list. Being in Virginia, growing up I visited a most of the historical sites, so that is of major interest to me. When I get better I would love to continue to do that with my husband in the future, so this would be great to do with your books :) Thanks for that info.

I look forward to reading your books, my aunt purchased Widow of Gettysburg for me after I had my second cancer related surgery. She didn't realize it was book two of the Heroines Behind the Lines series (if I'm not mistaken), She knew it was my kind of book by the title alone. So, I haven't read it yet, I still need to get the first book.

Sandra Rankin said...

I have read BLOWING ON DANDELIONS, and WISHING ON BUTTERCUPS. I can't wait to read FORGET ME NOT.

I so appreciate the comment about the lovely covers....as I just told Jocelyn yesterday how much I like her book covers...and I'm thrilled with mine, as well!

Thank you, ladies, for your sweet comments about reading one of the books in my series so far and looking forward to reading the others. I hope you get a chance to do so!

Teresa, you need to be sure and read some of Jocelyn's books!! You'll be glad you did.

Sereina, I'm so tickled to hear you recently discovered me books, thank you!

Heather, you mentioned three of my four Love Finds You books, so now I'm curious, did you happen to also read the one set in Sundance, WY?

Thank you, Connie, Andrea, Lora and Jackie, for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment!

connie price said...

I would love to read /win any of these three books.

Jocelyn said...

MARIANNE and POLLY, it's wonderful to connect with you--and all of you readers/hunters! People often ask if they can read my novels in any order or if the series is chronological. I would say, if you are only interested in Gettysburg, you can easily read just Widow of Gettysburg (book 2 in the series) and enjoy it as a stand-alone. However, if you think you might end up reading all the books, I'd start with Wedded to War (book 1) because there is some character overlap.

The funny thing about that is that I wouldn't have done it that way if it weren't for readers who kept saying they wanted to see more of the characters to see their storylines resolve. So kudos to readers who interact with authors! You definitely made a difference in my series! :)

Hi Miralee. Loved your interview with Jocelyn. I still only have the first of your war series. Thought sure I won the second once but never remembered where. I do have number 1 of this set two so would be great to win another to go with it. Thanks for a chance to win. Maxie mac262(at)me(dot)com

This sounds like a neat series! I love historical romances, though I've never read Love Blossoms in Oregon.

Betti said...

This series sounds just wonderful. I love historical fiction and very much enjoy the stories set in the west.
Glad you are part of this scavenger hunt!

Hannah Petersen said...

I love these scavenger hunts, they're so cool! :) All three books look really good!

C Marie said...

I'm afraid I haven't read any of your books, but they all look excellent. I haven't read many Christian books set during the Civil War (or frankly, that many books set during the Civil War in general), so I'm excited! Also, Blowing on Dandelions looks really good. :)

Reading Blowing on Dandilions now.

I haven't read any of Jocelyn's books, but I would love to!

Renee @ ericnreneec@sbcglobal.net

Jocelyn said...

C MARIE, I would be honored if the Heroines Behind the Lines Civil War books would get onto your reading list. These novels show a perspective of the Civil War usually not found in history books--but they are inspired by eyewitness accounts!

SHARMA and RENEE, thank you so much! I hope you enjoy them! Be sure to enter for a chance to win one of them at the next stop on the scavenger hunt, if you haven't already. :)

And to all those who have mentioned how fun this scavenger hunt is--I think I can speak for Miralee and the other authors that it is just as much fun for us to see you here, if not more so. :)
