It is obvious through every page that Beth White has done her research and turned A Rebel Heart into a must read for lovers of historical fiction.
It’s been five years since the War Between the States ended and Selah Daughtry has worked day in and out to keep herself and her family safe, and fed. Their land is about to go under in debt and giving it up is the last thing she wants to do. When it seems like all hope is lost Levi Riggins, a former union cavalryman comes and starts to investigate some inconsistences and possible sabotage to the Daughtry family land. Selah doesn’t know if she can trust him when he tells her he can help save her land if she agrees to turn the family home into a hotel. Trusting Levi is the only option she has, what she didn’t expect was her heart to fall for him during this difficult time when love is the last thing she is looking for.
A Rebel Heart is the perfect book for lovers of historical fiction. With the setting in Mississippi and the family struggling to keep their land and each other together, the tension mounts quickly as the fight to keep what is theirs together. The connection between Levi and Selah is immediate and you know the tension between them is going to build to a romance they won’t be able to turn away from. I enjoyed the way Levi worked to keep his mission a secret and still do the work he was there to do. It was hard for him to keep his distance when he obviously wanted to be with Selah. The book kept a good pace throughout and I enjoyed the way it played out at the end leaving room for more to come but wrapping things up nicely.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
