A Rebel Among Us Gets Another 5-Star Review

7c118-5184nldldel

My new novel, A Rebel Among Us, has received another 5-star review! Here it is for you to read. Thank you for all your support!

Format: Kindle Edition
I admire the author’s ability to take us back into the past. I’ve read her other historical novels (A Beautiful Glittering Lie and A Beckoning Hellfire ) so I know how well she can weave a story set in the Civil War period.
The characters are well developed and we get the feeling that we too are involved in their lives. Love knows no boundaries, no limits and no questions of North and South during the dramatic Civil War. Fact and fiction are the author’s food for thought as she mixes both to give an exciting tale.
Love, war and the difficulties we can only imagine, leap up from the pages of this book. An intriguing read that I recommend to all but especially those historical novel fans in particular.

Another 5-Star Review!

7c118-5184nldldel

My new novel, A Rebel Among Us, received another 5-star review! I’m so excited that I had to share. If you would like to review my book, please let me know and I’ll get an e-book sent out to you!

Format: Kindle Edition

For a girl who likes history, reading about life during the Civil War was just icing on the cake for this sweet romance. The story really was engaging and well written, and I could picture myself in that time period. Very well researched and detailed, and it was pretty honest of how slaves and freed men were treated back then. I don’t know why this stuck with me, but in other fiction books I’ve read of the Civil War, when it came to the issue of slaves, the South was bad and the North was good and treated all freed slaves as free white men, which wasn’t always the case.

It begins with a family of girls in Union territory finding a Confederate soldier injured, and how they nurse him back to health. The oldest sister gets him to stay one time, then asks him to stay longer with a proposition. Great story line and the characters were all likable. While Anna and David were the main characters, Maggie, the younger sister, and Patrick, a neighbor, helped make the story better.

I loved this book! It’s a longer book, so she has the time to work in details from her research. This was the first book I’ve ready by J.D.R. Hawkins, and I look forward to reading more historical pieces from this author.
