About the Book

Book: Her Rebel Heart

Author: Sharlene MacLaren

Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Cristina Stiles is left to fend for herself and her two young children while her husband goes off to fight in the Confederate army. She also has to deal with two rogue Yankee soldiers who’ve beaten her, stolen her food, and keep coming back to cause more trouble.

Jack Fuller is a God-fearing Christian fighting for the Union. During a surprise encounter, he shoots and kills a Rebel soldier. In his final breaths, the Rebel asks Jack to deliver a letter to his wife—and he agrees. But when he arrives at Cristina’s small farm in West Virginia, she assumes Jack is one of the Yankee trouble-makers, trains her rifle on him, and fires. As he lies on the ground bleeding, he explains the purpose of his visit, and out of a sense of obligation, she decides to nurse him back to health.

What will happen when Cristina discovers Jack is the one who made her a widow? Will her rebel heart forgive him—or finish him off?

My Review

Her Rebel Heart is a historical set in 1863 during the war. It was scary times. Cristina is left alone with her husband off to war. A bad soldier is after her. Jack shows up with some news, but she shoots him because she thinks he is the bad one.

There is so much more to the story. I loved Jack and Cristina’s story. Another great book by the author. Cristina was so brave and a wonderful mother.

I received a complimentary copy of the book from Celebrate Lit. This book review is my own opinion.
