A Heart’s Rebellion

Ruth Axtell. Revell, $14.99 trade paper (352p) ISBN 978-0-8007-2090-2
Sweetly tender, yet powerfully written, Axtell’s (Moonlight Masquerade) latest inspirational Regency romance, set against the glitz of London just prior to the Battle of Waterloo, enchants and delights as it follows a young couple’s path to love. Heart-sore and angry, vicar’s daughter Jessamine Barry is finished with matters of romance. After the gentleman with whom she had an unspoken understanding reveals his love for another, Jessamine agrees to travel to London for a season in hopes of leaving her heartache behind. A chance encounter with newly returned missionary Lancelot Marfleet, who is also second son of a baronet, plants the seeds of hope her reluctant and rebellious heart. However, overcoming her previous failed relationship and navigating the ton prove to be almost insurmountable challenges, especially when she is introduced to her former suitor’s new wife. The novel’s message blooms beautifully with nuanced storytelling and subtle, yet honest, characterization that chronicles the timeless journey through love and faith. The message of faith is woven through the narrative, interconnecting with love in a rich, relatable manner. Agent: Chip MacGregor, MacGregor Literary. (Mar.)
