I must admit that as I read Rebellious Heart this past week, my husband had to listen to me say numerous times, “Oh, I am sooo enjoying this book!” Another phrase he heard me repeatedly say was, “This is so good!” Finally, as I finished this story that is set amid the first grumblings of the American Revolution, I uttered, “Oh, that was wonderful! I wish it never had to end!”
With a well written plot and admirable characters, Rebellious Heart caught me up in its grasp right from the start and pulled me into the developing relationship of Susanna Smith and Benjamin Ross. These two characters have so much to recommend them. They care for others, love God and are deep thinkers. But can either of them give up on the idea that they must marry primarily to improve their positions in society? The attraction between Susanna and Ben sizzles. Throw in some heinous murders, Red Coats and a runaway indentured servant and you have a beautiful blend of romance and excitement.
I would recommend Rebellious Heart to all readers who love historical fiction and romance. (5 stars)
I received a complimentary copy of Rebellious Heart from the author and Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
