A Heart's Rebellion: A Book Review

About The Book:

In a world governed by unspoken rules, one young woman is about to break them all . . . 
Dutiful Jessamine Barry is tired of waiting patiently for a man to decide her future. So even though Lancelot Marfleet, second son of an aristocrat, is taking an interest in her during the London season, she refuses to consider him as a suitor. Instead, she's ready to take fashionable society by storm--and finds a rakish young man all too willing to help her do it. 

Can Jessamine trust her heart to lead her to a love that proves true through thick and thin? Or will her rash actions close the door on the life she really desires?

Lose yourself in Ruth Axtell's sumptuous story of discovering one's true self and finding true love.

My Review:

A beautifully detailed, well-written book that has many stunning characters that were charming and likeable. As I was, you will be drawn in from chapter one and not want to put this book down. With rich detail, the characters and their stories were brought to life and it was absolutely apparent that much research was put into developing this book. This book covers London's Regancy Period, and while a part of a series stands alone just fine. Being a huge fan of Jane Austen, reading this book allowed me to be swept into that world once again. A fantastic read with which I was not disappointed and I guarantee you will not be either. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
