Post-Civil War History, Mystery & Romance | A Rebel Heart by Beth White

ABOUT THE BOOK


Five years after the final shot was fired in the War Between the States, Selah Daughtry can barely manage to keep herself, her two younger sisters, and their spinster cousin fed and clothed. With their family's Mississippi plantation swamped by debt and the Big House falling down around them, the only option seems to be giving up their ancestral land.

Pinkerton agent and former Union cavalryman Levi Riggins is investigating a series of robberies and sabotage linked to the impoverished Daughtry plantation. Posing as a hotel management agent for the railroad, he tells Selah he'll help her save her home, but only if it is converted into a hotel. With Selah otherwise engaged with renovations, Levi moves onto the property to "supervise" while he actually attends to his real assignment right under her nose.

Selah isn't sure she entirely trusts the handsome Yankee, but she'd do almost anything to save her home. What she never expected to encounter was his assault on her heart.

MY REVIEW

In the start to Beth White’s Daughtry House series, A Rebel Heart, Selah Daughtry is doing all she can to keep her family alive in post-Civil War Mississippi—including, possibly, giving up their home. Yet, when undercover Pinkerton agent (and Yankee!) Levi Riggins arrives with a possible solution, such a sacrifice might not be necessary after all.

The story proceeds with an intriguing portrayal of the reality of the era, a touch of mystery (and a couple surprising twists!), and of course, a delightful romance. Though it does move slowly at times, I still very much enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from White in the future.


Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a complimentary copy of A Rebel Heart and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
