Original review:

Rebel Heart is a story of lies, deceit, love and hope; full of emotions that failed to make it all the way to my heart. In times of war, a young woman with a tragic past decides to spy for the Confederacy when she meets the love of her life, Alex. Everything is not as it seems and Julienne has to flee to the Continent to save herself. Can she escape her past and make a new start while her heart still belongs to the man who betrayed her?

I found this to be a superbly written story. At first, one may thing the alternating POV switch would be jarring, but it was so well done, with his parts in third person and her parts in first person, it flowed so that you knew immediately what POV you were reading.

The heroine is spunky, high-strung, and out for revenge. I loved her despite the fact she was fighting for the wrong side. She took matters in her own hands, choosing to get revenge in the only way she knew how: spying. She dresses as

REBEL HEART blew me away. I've been a traditionally published writer for many years, and when time permits, an avid reader. I bought this novel based on the first few sample pages I read. In that small excerpt, the author drew me into the story, and provided insight into the heroine's strong, independent character.

A readable story but could be so much better.

On the whole this is fairly well done. The plot, pace and structure are very good indeed. I’m sure if it was worked on with the following comments in mind it could be turned round into a real winner. That said, it was quite entertaining and serves the purpose when you want a light read. It’s because I see the potential here that I’m going to make the following comments.

Whilst the start of the story is not that original, classic Confederate versus Uni

Caroline Wilson pulls the reader into the story and never lets go. Her beautiful prose make the reading an enjoyment from the start, and her faithful recreation of the American Civil War era on two continents never falters. You are there. You are with Julienne, the headstrong heroine, rooting for her on her quest for justice and love, even if some of her choices and actions are too bold or impetuous for her own good. Lovers of Historical Fiction and Historical Romance will find Wilson's novel a ...more

Born and raised in the beautiful upcountry of South Carolina, Caroline Wilson has been writing since she couldn't keep up with the stories in her head anymore. Her first full length novel was written out by hand at the age of 12. "Rebel Heart" is her first published novel. When she's not writing, she loves to read (of course!) and review for the Historical Novel Society, travel, hunt for antiques, ...more
