"Heart's Rebellion," by Ruth Axtell

"Heart's Rebellion," by Ruth Axtell
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?


I enjoy reading about the Regency period of time in Britain. It highlights how differently people from different walks of life are treated.  This book was a very light read that doesn't require a lot of thought on your part.

Jessamine is a typical young lady who needs to grow up and while doing so experiences the realities of life; some good, some bad.  Lancelot sees something in Jessamine that he can't forget and despite all the ups and downs that they go through he believes in her through and through.

This book is very fast paced and the story keeps you interested.  One thing it did do was make me want to go to Kew Gardens.  That sounded so interesting the way they were described in the book.

Stars out of 5 : 4 An enjoyable read that won't tax the brain.
