Rebellious Heart

Rebellious Heart - Jody Hedlund This review comes to me as an ARC through NetGallery for my honest opinion. The following is my own statements and doesn’t reflect on to those associated with the making of the book. The description was provided by NetGallery.

This was a historical romance “loosely” based on the fledging stages of President John Adams & his wife - Abigail pre-Revolutionary War according to the author in a somewhat condensed timeline. This is the story of opposites attracting after a bit of a bumpy road during a time where you knew your place, what was excepted of you, where your reputation was everything and sometimes secrets are hard to keep.

You’re transported back to a time when we were still under Monarchy rule, you can get a sense of issues of the day leading up to the Revoltionary War from the thinking of the characters in this book.

If this is an example of this author's work I'll be forward to reading more of her book. As a piece of historical fiction, the story was well written in it’s glances of the past, smooth reading, making you understand how some decisions were made and nicely balanced to me. I thought the book was put together well and I’d give it 4.5 stars out of 5.
