Book Review: A Rebel Heart by Beth White

A Rebel Heart (Daughtry House #1)

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 Thoughts
I love books that are set in the Civil War Time Period. I loved how this book started off during the war and then moved a few years later post war. I love the authors writing style the story that she has created flows easily on the pages. Levi and Selah are great characters. They are well written. There are a few twists and turns thrown into the story too. 

I received a copy of this book through the Revell Reads blogging program, all thoughts are my own.
